(West Hollywood #1)
by Kylie Scott
He walks the red carpet. She’s more familiar with vacuuming one.
When a scandal tarnishes the reputation of hot as hell A-lister, Patrick Walsh, he needs a reputation rescue, pronto.
Enter waitress Norah Peers–a nobody who’s average with a capital A. She’s available, dependable, and has sworn off men for the rest of her natural born life. In other words: the perfect match for a no-strings fake romance.
For the right amount of money, she can avoid waitressing and play the part of his dependable down-to-earth girlfriend. What she can’t avoid–dammit–is the growing steam between them.
But being hounded by the paparazzi and having your life dissected on social media is a panic attack in the making. And while Patrick might be a charming rogue on screen, in real life he’s a six-foot-two confusing, gorgeous, brooding grump, who keeps her at a distance . . . but also makes her feel like this bond between them might be more than just an act.
Being dumped on cue should be no big deal. Except being fake with Patrick is the realist relationship Norah has ever had. What’s a girl to do, but flip the script, and ask for a rematch made in Hollywood?
Fake is the first book in the West Hollywood series by Kylie Scott. Patrick is a 36 year old Hollywood star and has been burnt and the lasting effects is his career has been damaged by his mistake and now he has to do something to save everything he has worked so hard for.
Norah is 30 years old and is not where she wants to be in life. A few set backs have left her working as a waitress in an Italian restaurant and a second job just to get by. She’s been celibate for a year as every relationship she has ends in disaster!
Patrick is conviced by his team that he needs a fake girlfriend and he decides Norah is the girl for the job.
Told in Norah’s POV, I would have liked it told by both POV thats just how I roll but it didn’t take anything from the story. This is a opposites attract story jammed pack full of sweet and silly moments. the secondary characters where everything and again this is something I think make a story great!
“I just need you to make the first move,” he said, voice guttural.
“Pay attention, Paddy.” I smiled. “I already did.”
This was a fun, enjoyable Hollywood read and I really enjoyed reading it! I hope we hear from some other characters in this book in the future.
