Kerry Pickering has a problem. As a publicist for Hollywood bad boy Jericho Knox, it’s Kerry’s job to keep Jericho in the news. So far, Jericho’s partying and public escapades have made it easy. But Jericho has a secret, and when that secret is revealed in the most spectacularly disastrous way, it’s up to Kerry to spin it.

The team decides the best course of action is to make the public fall in love—with Jericho’s secret committed relationship. The one that doesn’t exist. Yet.

The team wants someone they can trust. Someone in the inner circle. That someone is Kerry. But what will happen when Kerry realizes that for him, the romance is no longer pretend? Can Jericho love him back, or is he just playing a role?


It feels like it’s been forever since I’ve read something from M.J. O’Shea! She’s one of my favorite authors so to have read this beautiful story is such a treat because I feel like she’s in her element with this one 100%!!!! I’m so ready to dance like there’s no tomorrow because I fucking love it!!! My thirst has been quenched! M.J. is so back!!!

Okay, that’s me fantarding over M.J.  because I just totally adore this story!!! And this may just be the best one from the Dreamspun Desires Series! Whoot Hoot!  There’s nothing extraordinarily new about the story, it’s just that the writing is overflowing with loveliness!   I super-loved Kerry’s character. He’s a classic M.J. ‘s character – the all kinds of adorable kind of character. Jericho’s character however was not as likable until he stops being a jerk to Kerry. There was no major conflict here but it didn’t bother me one bit because it’s just all kinds of lovely – what with Kerry and Jericho falling for each other during their supposed ‘charade.’  I liked that they didn’t fall for each other hours upon their meeting.

 This is a book goodie all of you mm book lovers should get a hold of. Short, sweet, and just overall feelgood.

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars
