His Fake Fiancée (Fake For Me, #1). ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

His Fake Fiancee by Fiona Murphy

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Ivan Volkov is a wickedly intelligent, ruthless, and devastatingly gorgeous billionaire with a sexy British accent. He also owns the company I work for. The plan was simple: get his attention to show him I was the one behind all my boss’s awesome proposals that have been making the company hundreds of millions of dollars for the last three years. I’m the one who should be in the big office making a six-figure salary. 


It worked. I definitely have Ivan’s attention. He’ll put me in the big office with a six-figure salary—once he’s done with me. He needs a personal assistant until he can find a replacement. It won’t be long, he assures me, no more than a few weeks. 


Close proximity to Ivan Volkov for a few weeks? Sure, I don’t need my dignity. I wasn’t using it anyway. No matter how many times I tell myself to stop staring at him with lust, I can’t. 


Volkov turns down the offer I never even made; he saw me staring, he’s used to it by now. An unrepentant user of woman, all he wants is for them to satisfy his need, then be on their way. He can get that satisfaction from any woman. The money I make him isn’t worth losing when he’s done with me. 


Until the moment he needs more: a shield from a woman who won’t take no for an answer. He will do anything to protect his little sister from having her wedding ruined, even faking an engagement with me. Brilliant tactician that he is, he comes up with the answer to both of his problems. For the next three weeks we can satisfy the lust we both feel, while at the same time making it clear he isn’t available. 


But before long what’s between us feels all too real. Can this lead to forever, or will the billionaire choose money over love?

The setting: Chicago & England

The Hero(s): Ivan Volkov – he left Russia at the age of five, moved to England and by the age of 35 was a billionaire. Ivan is Owner and CEO of Volkov Holdings, a company that finds struggling companies and acquires them, builds them up and sells them at a significant profit, as a whole or in pieces.

The heroine: Christina Connelly – her roots are an Irish father and Black Cuban mother. Christina takes care of her Abuelo and is trying to pay off their house. Her Grandfather is a racist who needs a nurse but is constantly offending them so it is hard for Christina to keep them.

The Love Story: Christina had never before met Ivan though she had worked for the company over three years. When her boss Simon (who has been handing off Christina’s work as his own) is out, Christina meets with Ivan to give her latest proposal. Christina is immediately attracted and intimidated by Ivan but thinks she is being foolish since she is a curvy girl. Ivan is attracted to Christina as soon as he sees her but doesn’t understand since he is a bit of a womanizer.

I really liked this story. Though Ivan is a player and is used to rarely dating the same woman more than once, he is very drawn to Christina from the start. He sees that the way he wants her is different than anything he has felt before. However, he remains adamant that he will be bored with her in a few weeks. Though in the meantime he can’t keep his hands off her.

I love it when a man is a slave to his feelings. Ivan cherishes Christina and though he thinks everything will end soon, he is all in for the time he figures he has her. Christina is a brilliant and emotional woman. I didn’t like the fact that at times she was referred to as “Fat” by other people and that she thought that about herself as well. However, her weight wasn’t overly harped on like in some books. I still wish writers would just forget about weight completely. I wish it wasn’t mentioned at all. I don’t mind a woman who has self esteem issues, I just hate it when it is about looks or weight.

Overall though this book was sizzling hot! I loved the romance between Ivan and Christina and I also liked the fact that the fake fiancé scenario wasn’t the only storyline or even the main storyline. There was a lot of family drama, some pretty woman shopping moments, and a lot of boss/employee workplace romance as well!

I voluntarily read & reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts & opinions are my own.
