Title: Faking Ms. Right
Author: Claire Kingsley
Release: May 28, 2019
Genre: Contemporary Rom/Com
Cover Design: Kari March Designs
Everly Dalton is a walking, talking, martini-drinking dating disaster. Forget kissing frogs. She can’t even get past the first date. But at work, she’s a badass—the longest-running assistant billionaire Shepherd Calloway has ever had. Her coworkers wonder how she handles the big bad wolf—and never gets bit.
Shepherd Calloway isn’t interested in being anyone’s sugar daddy. Tired of women who only want him for his money, he swears off dating, determined to focus on running his empire. Until his gold-digging ex hits him where it hurts, putting him in a difficult position.
His solution—to have Everly pose as his live-in girlfriend—is obviously crazy. But the timing is uncanny. It just so happens Everly needs a favor from her boss—a big and awkward one—and this could ensure everyone gets what they want.
Besides, Everly can totally survive a few months of faux romance.
Except there’s a problem. Shepherd is supposed to be a single-minded, unemotional robot boss. Not an actual human with a heart and morning wood. Between the awkward bed-sharing and tingly fake dates, lines are blurring. And as Everly gets to know the real Shepherd, she discovers there’s more to the man behind the bank account.
And faking it gets all too real.
I love everything about this book. I have been a fan of Claire Kingsley for quite a while now, but this definitely ranks among my favorites. The writing is fantastic, the characters are real and relatable, and the chemistry is undeniable! This is an absolute must read!
Shepherd is my favorite kind of hero. He is broody and comes across as a bit of a grump at first, but there is so much more to him. He is sexy, swoony, and so perfect. While he may not wear his heart on his sleeve, he knows a good thing when he finds it. While he may not always know how to handle (or even recognize) his feelings right away, once he goes in, he is all in. I loved watching him open up throughout this story! Not only did I love seeing the way he grew and developed as his relationship with Everly grew and developed, I loved watching him with his family. They added so much to this story!
And Everly is an absolutely perfect ray of sunshine. While her optimism may get her into trouble on occasion, I love that she continues to put herself out there. She is definitely someone you want to have in your corner, because she has no limits on how far she will go for those she cares about…well, almost no limits. She is smart, passionate, and loyal. After all of her dating disasters, she definitely deserved a happy ending!
I absolutely loved the build in this book. While the connection between Shepherd and Everly was clear from early on, I loved that they built up to their relationship. The wait was absolutely delicious and kept me on the edge of my seat. I had a hard time putting this book down, because I was cheering them on and waiting for them to recognize what they really had. And once they did recognize it, I was so freaking happy I needed to see how everything turned out for them!
There are so many characters in this book that I am dying to see more of! Everyone was so well written that I want to know more about their own stories and see them all find their own happy endings. I hope there is so much more to come! This is one you definitely don’t want to miss!
