Summary

The newest romance from New York Times best-selling, Audie Award-winning author Kylie Scott!

He walks the red carpet. She’s more familiar with vacuuming one.

When a scandal tarnishes the reputation of hot-as-hell A-lister Patrick Walsh, he needs a reputation rescue, pronto.

Enter waitress Norah Peers - a nobody who’s average with a capital A. She’s available, dependable, and has sworn off men for the rest of her natural born life. In other words: the perfect match for a no-strings fake romance.

For the right amount of money, she can avoid waitressing and play the part of his dependable down-to-earth girlfriend. What she can’t avoid - dammit - is the growing steam between them.

But being hounded by the paparazzi and having her life dissected on social media is a panic attack in the making. And while Patrick might be a charming rogue on screen, in real life he’s a six-foot-two confusing, gorgeous, brooding grump, who keeps her at a distance...but also makes her feel like this bond between them might be more than just an act.

Being dumped on cue should be no big deal. Except being fake with Patrick is the realist relationship Norah has ever had. What’s a girl to do but flip the script, and ask for a re-match made in Hollywood?

Fake kept me up late reading because I could not put this story down. I adored Patrick and Norah, the fun, the banter...all the sweetness. Not to mention the heat! Kylie Scott delivers again!" (Carly Phillips, New York Times best-selling author)

“Kylie Scott has been one of my favorite authors for years. Her way with words, and her ability to make me fall in love with men I know I shouldn’t but do anyways, has always been the recipe for the perfect read for me. I absolutely loved Fake, and it was easy with brooding alpha Patrick and quirky lovable Norah. The two of them together are a match made in book heaven. I couldn’t put this book down once I started and know everyone will feel the same.” (Aurora Rose Reynolds, New York Times best-selling author)

“Kylie Scott proves once again why she is one of my auto-buy authors. Fake is an absolute delight...for every woman who wished her celebrity crush would fall madly in love with her. Fake is romance gold from one of the genre’s best!" (Naima Simone, USA Today best-selling author)

"Grumpy megastar hero whose rare smiles bring out all the warm and fuzzies, and the upbeat, every girl heroine he never saw coming." (Ally Blake)

This was Kylie Scott perfection 🥰

I always enjoy her books and could not wait until this came out in audio. It was perfectly written with just enough drama to keep you engaged enough sweetness to make you swoon enough of a protective male hero to make you want to grab him and take him home lol Add all this to great narration and you have a 10 🌟listen. This is going on the repeat list.

A FAKE - FOREVER ROMANCE DONE SO DELICIOUSLY RIGHT

I do love a good ‘fake’ relationship where boundaries deliciously blurr and emotions get real.. and Norah and Patrick’s story was all I’d hoped for - and much more. A drool-worthy Hollywood Actor with a damaged career because of a bad reputation and the hardworking good girl financially stretched Waitress who turns that bad boy around. Yes, it’s pretty predictable - awkward start.. staged touches and kisses.. a solid friendship forms.. and sparks ignite into a fire as the closed-off actor slowly opens up to a down-to-earth woman. But folks, it’s also a very enjoyable, very charming and very addictive listen told from Norah’s POV. There’s a wonderful anticipation as feelings slowly change and finally they open-up, own up and reach the same page.. but what is true and what is false? Will Patrick choose his ex when she comes back on the scene? Will he choose his rekindled career when, and if, he gets the call this’fake’ has all been for? Or will time simply run out for the happy couple?

Worth a credit? Yes it was great. Andi Arndt did a great job bringing the straight-talking, loving, selfless, out-of-her-depth Waitress to life bringing with her the emotional dilemmas and lustful “never going to happen “ temptations that are front and center since moving in with her broody, sexy, generous, handsome, hot fake fiancé.

Not the best

I love Kylie's books but this one just wasn't as good as some of the others. It doesn't hold a candle to Repeat or Play.

Disappointing

Wow, so disappointing! Thank goodness it's over! I love Kylie Scott ... Stage Dive and Dive Bar series are among my absolute favorites but even Andi Arndt couldn't make me like this story.

Faking at its best!

I am an avid fan of Kylie Scott. I started with her Stage Dive Series and have been a devoted fan ever since. In every story she pens the heroine has wit, charm and sarcastic humor that I can relate to. This story is one of many "fake" relationship romances on the market. However, what makes this story so special is that Kylie Scott penned it! Norah is a down to earth ordinary person who gets swept up into a public relations campaign with a famous customer from the diner she worked at. Despite herself she finds an attraction to the handsome, charismatic actor who, in turn, begins to fall for the genuine, humorous, un-jaded Norah. He finds that despite all the Hollywood glitz that surrounds him he craves "real". While this is not my favorite work of hers, it is worth listening and reading, as I have done both twice! Her stories always leave you wanting more. The talented And Arndt gives a stellar performance, as always. This book is definitely one to read, listen to or, as in my case, both!

Enchanting

I’m loved this enchanting story! Love happens when you least expect it and for Patrick and Nora, this was the case.

These characters were perfect for each other. I could not put this down and I can’t wait for the next book in the series.

We all should have a Patrick (Patty) in our lives. Kylie’s make characters are amazing and the women are strong self aware.

No one does it better than Kylie I swear.

Sugar coma

The only way I can explain this book, and I m only at the beginning, is a sugar come!!!! Imagine you are a person that likes unsweetened ice tea. You go to someone’s house and they offer you sweet tea and out of politeness you say ok I will try some. You try it and it is a sweet tea syrup - pure sugar that puts you in a sugar coma. This book has no substance. It is completely nonsensical and characters are behaving so oddly that you are wondering how can someone put this into print. I do not recommend it - it will stupefy you.
