From USA Today Bestselling author J.L. Berg comes a sexy standalone about love, lies and every dirty little thing in between.
It wasn’t just a job.
It was my way back to the top.
After losing my position as a journalist for one of the biggest news publications in the world, I knew I’d do anything to get it back.
Even if it meant breaking a few hearts to get there.
She was the hottest author in the country. Known only by a pen name, there wasn’t a person alive who wasn’t dying to discover her true identity.
And I’d figured it out.
Her real name was Kate O’Malley and not only did I plan on finding her, but I fully intended on learning every dirty secret she had and exploiting it for my own gain.
But I underestimated my prey.
I didn’t anticipate how her words would intoxicate me, or how the curves of her body would consume me.
I never meant to fall in love.
And now I had a choice to make.
Do I give up everything for the woman I set out to destroy, or walk away, making me the biggest fraud of all?
Please Note: This book contains adult language and scenes. Not intended for readers under the age of 18.
Killian, in the beginning, is not the most likable of characters. He's full of himself, full of his fame, and high on his own talent. However, he shoots himself in the proverbial foot and has to start over from square one with his career. He's a user. That's the best way to describe him, and he made me angry from the beginning. I was practically yelling at the book when he pushed himself into Kate's quiet, private life.
As a reader, I knew what he had planned, and that kind of ruined it for me. At first. I was hoping there'd be more mystery and buildup to the fraud, but once Killian got rolling and insinuated himself into Kate's life, I found it interesting to watch him try to be a nice guy. He actually found himself trying to win Kate over and in the process, he won me over.
Kate, who's pen name is synonymous with hot, steamy sex.... and is the exact opposite of Kate herself. Laura Stone writes about things most women fantasize about and can't get enough of when they read her books, but no one knows who she is; except Killian of course who is now in over his head. He's falling for Kate and doesn't know if he should tell her the truth or ride out the rollercoaster he's trapped on, that is until his brother throws a wrench in his plans.
I enjoyed the twists and turns of the story, and even knowing more than the antagonist became less of an issue. Great story and fun characters. Worth the read and you'll have to decide for yourself is Killian is redeemable.
