#NewRelease #SeriesStarter #DualReview- Fake, West Hollywood #1 by Kylie Scott

 

Fake by [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 your 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 rematch made in Hollywood?

Review by Twinsie Angie

I was given this book for an honest review by the author.

*Sigh*  Another great read by Kylie.  I loved the chemistry between Patrick and Norah!  I loved that Patrick was a smart man and listened to Norah.  I loved that Norah was a normal chick.  She was me.  One of my favorite things about Kylie’s writing is her ability to make hilarious banter.

Norah was a waitress doing her daily grind when she is made an interesting offer.  Patrick the playboy needs a girlfriend to clean up his image and what would be more perfect then a normal, everyday girl next door type???

Norah is the Sunshine carebear while Patrick would be described as Grumpy carebear.  LOL  I enjoyed the storylines they had and the story lines of secondary characters.  I am excited for the series and can’t wait to see more of these two in the series.

Review by Twinsie Melinda

I received a copy of this book for an honest review.

I enjoy Kylie’s stories they are full of humor and banter between the individuals. This one was no different.

Norah is a simple girl the plain Jane. She works multiple jobs so her grandmother can live in an assisted living home. Everything she does is for her grandmother. One of her jobs she is a waitress in an Italian restaurant where Hollywood icon Patrick  Walsh comes to get away and eat in peace.

When Patrick’s carrier starts to tank and he needs to turn his persona around he propositions Norah to be his fake girlfriend. Which Norah takes him up on his offer and now she can put her grandmother in an A+ assisted living home. Norah knows she will end up in the spot light but she as no idea what that really consists of until she finds herself in on center stage and everything about her comes out to the public.

I enjoyed this story Hollywood start falls for the average girl. Kylie’s characters are so life like you can see this happening in the real world. These two were great there was a spark between them and the banter they have is great. This is a slow burn kinda book really Patrick is so brooding let feeling out then pulls back. I enjoyed seeing Patrick and Norah’s relationship come to life and then deal with being in the public eye. I cannot wait to see more of this series.
