When the lines between pretense and reality blur, can the actor and the boyfriend-for-hire discover something real?

Ryan Levesque is Hollywood’s newest blue-eyed boy. Moving from soap operas to the big screen has paid off for the kid from Minnesota, and he’s hot property. But, when a video from the lowest point of his past is shared on social media everything begins to unravel and old hurts resurface. His agent suggests a way out of the mess, and he jumps at the chance to make things right by pretending he’s in a committed, loving relationship with the tall, dark, sexy boyfriend for hire, Kaden. Only, he never counted on the impact Kaden would have on his life or his career.

When Kaden Moore’s next assignment lands in his lap, he’s expecting nothing more than a self-centered celebrity who’s messed up. Kaden’s new role is that of Hollywood A-lister Ryan Levesque’s boyfriend, a PR stunt concocted by his agents to restore the actor’s dented popularity. Kaden is aware of the video that surfaced from Ryan’s past, and though it raises questions about what kind of man Ryan is, it’s not any of Kaden’s business. Kaden has been pretending his entire life and knows he can show the troublesome actor a thing or two about the world beyond the Hollywood bubble. But maybe Kaden isn’t as clued up as he thinks, especially when it comes to the heart and love.

What’s not to love? It’s fake boyfriends at it’s finest, but with R.J. Scott’s clever wit and sweet romance.

Kaden takes on a challenge at work when he’s hired by Ryan, a pretty widely known actor who’s run into quite a bit of trouble in the gossip section. But there’s always more to the story…

Kaden is the perfect fake boyfriend. He’s charming, handsome, can remember names and dates and kisses like a… wait. The kiss was fake, right? Mwaahaa. You have to read this story to find out.

Ryan, though. Man. His ex-boyfriend was manipulative and condescending and abusive. And even though Ryan had gotten away from him, he was still trying to control him. And things got worse when Ryan’s former friend was his new stand in where the ex was concerned. Needless to say, there was a lot going on in this story, which provided a lot of times for Ryan to need comfort from Kaden, which led to sweet dialogue and some heated scenes.

If you love the whole ‘my life is a mess and now I have to hire a super sexy man to pretend to be my boyfriend’ trope, then look no further than this series. It’s R.J. Scott… need I say more?

Reading has become such a huge part of my life as an adult. I love the escape, but I also try to take something from each story for myself. I am a lover of words. I love dialogue. I love a slow burn and a happy ever after. Favorite Authors: Garrett Leigh, Amy Lane, Mary Calmes, Lane Hayes, T.J. Klune, Roan Parrish, N.R. Walker, Cara Dee, Anyta Sunday
