Summary

She wants a fake relationship. He needs something real. 

If there’s one thing Rae can’t stand, it’s pity. She’s 40, frazzled, and fed up - so attending an awards ceremony alone while her ex swans about with his new wife? Not an option. To avoid total humiliation, Rae needs a date of her own. And her young, hot-as-hell new best friend is the perfect candidate....

Zach Davis, king of casual hookups, has a secret: the notorious womanizer craves emotional connection, and anonymous encounters leave him feeling hollow. After years of performance, Zach’s desperate to be himself. So why does he agree to play Rae’s fake boyfriend? And why does it feel so easy? 

When the line between pretence and desire blurs, Zach’s forced to face an unexpected truth: there’s nothing phony about his need for Rae. But the jaded divorcée’s been hurt by playboy men before. Can a weekend of faking it prove that Zach’s for real?

Great ending to an excellent series!

Loved this story and this whole series! The characters were wonderful as was Rupert Channing's narration! Talia Hibbert is a new favorite author of mine - I'm already diving into another Hibbert series!

Love this series

I love this whole series. Each of her male characters are wonderful, kind and caring. Her women are strong and powerful.
I adore that she has a Demi sexual character THe story was beautiful and thoughtful and sexy as hell. I am in a mission to read every book by this author.

Let down was the way just took it

Rae was older (cougar), which was all good for me. I just was not satisfied with the way she treated Zach. He was younger and his demisexual position was interesting. I was just waiting the entire read for Rae to make a stand. Yes, she did make a stand in a sense but not the one that I thought would give her true satisfaction. She took too long to accept the relationship between her and Zach. I felt like she was waiting for it all to fall from under her.

Another narration for Rupert and the feminine characters fell flat for me.

Happily Ever After but no closure

They story was good and hot and steamy but if you're the type of reader that needs a closure for lifestyles of the main characters, this book is not for you.

Spoiler

i would have liked to know how things went with the main character (Rae) and her mother after their fallout.

Mixed emotions about this book

This is my least favorite of the Ravenswood series. I liked Rae ok, but Zack, not so much. He was too demanding and intense and aggressive IMO.

Of all the male characters of the books I’ve read thus far by this author, Zach is resoundingly my least favorite (I liked all the others, even Zach’s brother Nate).

Enjoyable Series

I waited to write my review until after I finished all three books and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. All three elationships had their own interesting dynamic. I have to say I think Ruth and Evan are my favorite couple, but that's not to take away from Hannah and Hate or Zach and Rae.

They were all entertaining and the storylines were all interesting. I listened to all three books over a span of 3 1/2 days while at work and I spent actual money and the second and third books, which I don't normally do. I highly recommend all three books.

One of my favorite Hibbert novels so far

Hibbert always nails her characters and the levels of representation she accomplishes without tokenizing are impressive. As always, her plots are realistic and provoking, her characters likable and engrossing, and her sex scenes consensual and steamy. These characters might be my favorite set so far!

Pleasantly surprised

I downloaded this on a whim before a 6 hour drive and I have to say it was a decent choice. Usually at least one of tha main characters in these type of romance novels is absolutely insufferable and hard to like. Despite their personal issues, Rae & Zack are a good fit deserving of their happy ending. I got the feeling the reader should have known who the supporting characters (the friends) were from other books. However this is my first book from this author and not having read her other work did not take away from this story at all. The narrator was awesome.
