Book Review: Dating Games by T.K. Leigh

My rules for being a Manhattan billionaire’s fake girlfriend… No kissing. No fooling around. No falling in love. What can possibly go wrong?

Note to self:

When your boyfriend dumps you on your thirtieth birthday, it’s probably not the smartest idea to drink so much that you wake up in the same bed as the mysterious hottie wearing the gorgeous suit who you noticed sitting across the bar.

The only silver lining in my obvious lack of judgment is the promise of never seeing Mr. Suit again, not in a city the size of New York.

Or so I thought, until a story I’m working on about the country’s most sought-after and elusive escort lands me in the same café as Mr. Suit. So I do what any self-respecting woman of my age would do in my shoes… Try to ignore him.

But he won’t let me.

Instead he makes a proposition that leaves me questioning whether I need to have my ears checked. Be his fake girlfriend for a summer of wealth and excess in the Hamptons. In return, he’ll help me win back my boyfriend’s heart.

Juvenile? You bet.
Effective? Could be.
Bad idea? Most likely.

But what do I have to lose?
Apparently, a lot more than I originally bargained for.

Let the games begin…

My Thoughts:

Evie is excited for her thirtieth birthday and is expecting a proposal from her boyfriend of twelve years. What does she get? Her boyfriend breaks it off with her. Distraught, she meets her friends at a bar and drinks her sorrows away. In true, Evie fashion, she doesn’t take it sitting down. No, she tells the entire bar her story and feels better for it. Until she wakes up in a strangers bed with no recollection of how she got there. Sneaking out before he could wake, she intends to pretend that little rendezvous didn’t happen.

Later, she’s approached by said mystery man. He proposes she date him for the summer. He needs a woman on his arm and she wants to get her ex back. She scratches his back, he scratches hers. No sex, no kissing, just dating. So, she agrees.

It’s sexy and fun to watch these two skirt around each other and know the attraction they pretend to have is real. There is some hurt on his end, some hurt on hers. They complement each other and there’s a lot of mystery and intrigue. Enjoyable and fun. I love the Breakfast at Tiffany’s references.

You won’t be disappointed when you read this story. These characters will be left with you after the story is over.
