When faking it becomes aching for it...
They say a bachelor with a big "vessel" is a babe magnet. And you know what? They aren't wrong. But the CEO of the family yacht company (a.k.a. my mother) is rocking my boat, demanding I bed and wed the heiress of one of our biggest competitors. If my mother doesn't get her way and decides to fire me, I forfeit millions in trust fund money. So there's that.
Salvation comes in the form of Delaney Brewster, who just happens to need an investor. In exchange, she agrees to help me stave off Mommie Dearest by pretending to be my girlfriend. It's a crazy faking idea, but even crazier? My heart is telling me that spunky, sexy Delaney could be the real deal.
It's not an overstatement to say my 9-to-5 equates to lying underneath a hairy fat guy and faking an orgasm. I desperately want to start my own business, but my cash flow...isn't. Until Damon Cavanaugh makes me an offer my bank account can't refuse.
Pretending to be his girlfriend should be easy, since I've sworn off serious relationships. And let's face it, he's easy on the eyes. But the more I get to know Damon, the less it feels like acting. And when his mother steps up the pressure, the gloves--and the masks--have to come off, exposing the one thing I swore to protect...my heart.
