Everly Dalton has the worst luck with dating. After a string of truly terrible first dates, she decides to take a break from dating and focus on her friends and her career as executive assistant to billionaire Shepherd Calloway. Shepherd is a cold and demanding boss, but Everly can handle him. When Shepherd finds himself in need of a faux girlfriend to outwit an ex-lover, he calls his assistant to step in. Will Everly and Shepherd find their fake relationship is not so fake after all?
Everly and Shepherd are perfectly opposite. She is warm, bubbly, and friendly. She’s the type to do anything for anyone, even if it means sacrificing her own happiness. Shepherd thinks he’s genetically predisposed to be cold and unfeeling, just like his mother. The transition to his demeanor as Everly starts to melt his hard candy coating is a joy to witness.
The “side” characters are a delight as well, I love a group of strong women and her friends did not disappoint. Shepherd’s father and brother are both quite lovely. I didn’t care for Everly’s sister (I won’t spoil why) but suffice to say she put Everly in a terrible position with no thought to the ramifications.

“When I kissed you last night, I wasn’t pretending.”
Everly Dalton is a walking, talking, martini-drinking dating disaster. Forget kissing frogs. She can’t even get past the first date. But at work, she’s a badass—the longest-running assistant billionaire Shepherd Calloway has ever had. Her coworkers wonder how she handles the big bad wolf—and never gets bit.
Shepherd Calloway isn’t interested in being anyone’s sugar daddy. Tired of women who only want him for his money, he swears off dating, determined to focus on running his empire. Until his gold-digging ex hits him where it hurts, putting him in a difficult position.
His solution—to have Everly pose as his live-in girlfriend—is obviously crazy. But the timing is uncanny. It just so happens Everly needs a favor from her boss—a big and awkward one—and this could ensure everyone gets what they want.
Besides, Everly can totally survive a few months of faux romance.
Except there’s a problem. Shepherd is supposed to be a single-minded, unemotional robot boss. Not an actual human with a heart and morning wood. Between the awkward bed-sharing and tingly fake dates, lines are blurring. And as Everly gets to know the real Shepherd, she discovers there’s more to the man behind the bank account.
And faking it gets all too real.
