One (fake) boyfriend
Practically perfect in every way

Luc O'Donnell is tangentially--and reluctantly--famous. His rock star parents split when he was young, and the father he's never met spent the next twenty years cruising in and out of rehab. Now that his dad's making a comeback, Luc's back in the public eye, and one compromising photo is enough to ruin everything.

To clean up his image, Luc has to find a nice, normal relationship...and Oliver Blackwood is as nice and normal as they come. He's a barrister, an ethical vegetarian, and he's never inspired a moment of scandal in his life. In other words: perfect boyfriend material. Unfortunately apart from being gay, single, and really, really in need of a date for a big event, Luc and Oliver have nothing in common. So they strike a deal to be publicity-friendly (fake) boyfriends until the dust has settled. Then they can go their separate ways and pretend it never happened.

But the thing about fake-dating is that it can feel a lot like real-dating. And that's when you get used to someone. Start falling for them. Don't ever want to let them go.

Liezel’s Thoughts:

I kept hearing about this book and after I found out there was a special edition that was going to be created, I decided I just had to read this book.

What I enjoyed most about it was how the couple felt real. The main character of the story was a complete mess. Luc’s personal life was in shambles, in all aspects except for his friendships. What kept me so enraptured was how someone like him would find a good fit.

Oliver on the other hand, had it together – or so it seemed. He seemed so perfect but what I discovered is that he isn’t quite as he seems. What was remarkable about them was how they made each other better. I adored their pairing.

What I found difficult about the story however was that I had issues getting into the story. Some of the lingo went way over my head. There are instances that may have been more laughable but more me I just couldn’t grasp it. For this, I couldn’t really completely connect.

I did appreciate Luc and Oliver’s story and will be differently  reading  what comes next with these two in the next book Husband Material.

The Verdict:
