Faking It with #41 (Hockey Hotties, #3). ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Faking It with #41 by Piper Rayne

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Being the heir to Jacobs Enterprises, I’ve been around fake people my entire life. I promised myself a long time ago that I wouldn’t change for anyone. Which is the only reason I’m a professional hockey player who lives on the beach and does as he pleases without answering to anyone—except my father.

And now, my daughter.

Being a single dad wasn’t in the plan but after a one-night stand who took off after the baby was born, this is my reality.

My dad’s been harping on me to quit hockey and join the company for years and now that I’m a father, he’s only intensified his efforts. Until he makes me a deal I can’t refuse.

Insert Lena Boyd, the Jacobs’ family PR rep. She’s beautiful and intelligent and not at all the woman for me—ask anyone. 

My dad needs us to act happily engaged and sell the idea that we’re in love. If we’re successful I won’t have to join the family legacy—ever. Of course, I agree.

That’s when things get complicated. I thought I had her all figured out until I found out there was more underneath her judgmental sneers and eye rolls. It feels like everything is coming together for the future I really want—with Lena—until my past ruins everything. 

Faking It with #41

Puck my life!

The heroine: Lena – works as a PR representative for Jacob’s Enterprises. She makes a good deal of money and needs her job in order to support her father who is in an expensive care facility. She grew up caring for her father after her mother died and constantly had to worry about money and being kicked out of their latest apartment.

The Hero: Ford – heir to Jacob’s Enterprises, Ford grew up with a silver spoon in his mouth, but wanted to have his own life. He is now a Professional Hockey Player who has a fondness for women. After one of his one night stand’s ends up pregnant and leaves him with the six month old baby girl, Ford is left trying to make things work and keep his father at bay, who wants him to grow up, be “responsible”, and clean up his image so he stops embarrassing the family.

The Story: Though Ford is tired raising a six month old baby and playing hockey, he can’t seem to get a kiss he shared with Lena on his family’s private plane on New Year’s eve. However, Lena seems to hate him and works for his father, which makes her off limits.

The narration was done by Teddy Hamilton and Erin Mallon. I have listened to books narrated by both of these people before and they both are great readers with voices that fit well in the romance genre. Teddy Hamilton does great as they cocky hockey player and Erin has a soft lilting voice which I enjoy and fits Lena as well.

This was my second book in the Hockey Hotties series and I have really liked both of them so far. I plan to read more of this series. I love the sports romance and Hockey is my favorite since the guys are hot, well built and not afraid to fight.
