Sham. Fraud. Hoax. All words that describe my relationship with Callum Hanson.
It didn’t start out that way. We used to be friends. That is until high school, when Callum decided he was too cool to be seen with his less than popular next-door neighbor. So, imagine my surprise when out of the blue, after nearly four years of pretending like I don’t exist, he offers to swoop in and save the day by promising to help me catch the eye of the boy I’ve been pining after for nearly two years.
The only catch…I have to lie. To everyone.
Pretending to be his girlfriend turned out to be a lot easier than I thought it would. I was surprised by how well I fit into his world, and how well he fit into mine.
Before long though, the lines between fake and real started to blur. I began to see Callum as more than just Norwood High’s star football player and manwhore extraordinaire. And the more time I spent with him, the more I wanted it all to be real.
But that’s the problem with telling lies. No matter how pretty they sound, at the end of the day they’re still lies. I just wish someone would explain that to my heart.

I never should have agreed to becoming his fake wife…
Sinclair Amadeus Sterling aka Mr. Superior Jackass with a God complex. Who also happens to be my blackmailer… gulp. Tall, dark, gazzilionaire growly pants. The first time I met him, I kneed him in his very well endowed balls, don’t ask! He had that tightly leashed, controlling air and a smoldering glare that made me damp in seconds. The only thing that sucks worse than his attitude is his (lack of) sense of humor! Honest. Sadly, he’s also the one who could save my business from going bust. Hell! So when he offers me the chance to work with him, I can hardly refuse, right? Only catch? I need to be his pretend wife for hold-your-breath, thirty days.
I should have turned and run right then, but…He has the connections to help my sister’s failing health, not to mention the money to wipe away my debt. And yeah that… sneaky video recording of him getting me off. OMG! Besides, it’s only thirty days, right? It’s not like I’m in danger of falling in love with London’s most notorious bachelor.
Then he tells me the real reason for the charade. And everything changes…

Then Sage announced I’d knocked her up. And oh yeah, she doesn’t expect me to take an active role, because she suspects I can’t handle anything except myself. Say what?
She’s so wrong, and I’m going to prove it to her. I’m going to claim my baby—and Sage.

A woman in the business of love that’s never been in a real relationship. Check. That’s me. Nessa Night.
Now I know what you’re thinking. That sounds like a stripper name. Hold up. Let me explain. It’s my radio talk-show name. My incognito way of helping the world love deeper and more often. Though my love life is like a ten-year-old fall leaf trapped between the pages of an old journal. #dramatic
I’m short. Curvy. Average at best. And I’m a fraud. For all the advice I give on the air, I have zero experience to back it up. I’m eternally single. Forever alone. And the only man I’ve ever caught feelings for is one of my callers: Mr No Name.
Much to my surprise, he’s not unknown at all. The grandson of the great Jack Daniels is my caller, and worse? He’s my brother’s best friend from high school. Only one way to right these increasingly awkward wrongs. High school reunion time. He wants in, and I want a date who looks like him. The only thing off is his advice about love. It’s from Nessa night. Me!
And if he swoons over her (me!) one more time, I’ll have to give in and tell him. Besides, I’m in the business of love.
If I don’t got this, who does? *Gulp*
Men like us, we see things. We do things, things that make us unfeeling.
That’s the price of power and money, of living la belle vie and running the French mafia. Then she came along like a pretty wildflower pushing through the cracks on a dirty pavement – fragile yet resilient, a breath of beauty among the filth. She was supposed to be just another job, a nameless person I was to pluck from her life and hand to my brother, nothing but a pawn in the gamble of our diamond business.
There’s a psychological label for men like us.
We lack empathy and guilt. We do things to have what we want, things that make flowers wilt.
