Public relations, private complications–it’s all about to hit the front page.
Billionaire playboy Peter Wells pays for sex. His girlfriend-for-hire arrangements are tidy, simple, and not apt to land him with a palimony suit. When an anonymous gossip columnist reveals his predilections for escorts and control Peter vows revenge.
Georgia Whitcomb is a lot of things–incognito journalist, aristocrat, and best friend to a sleep deprived and slightly neurotic editor–but she isn’t really girlfriend material. She’s old money pretending to be no money, and has her independence to maintain.
When the paper won’t name its source, Peter buys the business and dubs Georgia his personal assistant. Georgia is mortified to learn exactly what type of person Peter is–generous, compassionate, demanding. Peter is unprepared for the deep passion and commitment Georgia inspires from him.
As Peter’s past comes to light, the walls around Georgia’s heart erode and her lies begin to unravel. In the end, there seems to be no way to reveal her true self without destroying their fragile romance. With Peter’s investigation peeling back the layers of her deception, only one thing is certain: the fallout from falling in love will be front page news.
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I’ve been in a slow, progressive book funk, so, I totally needed this! To be honest, I didn’t expect to enjoy this as much as I did. In fact, it’s been a while since I finished a book in one sitting.
I know the premise sounds quite cliche — yes, billionaire playboy — but it’s a really entertaining read.
