Synopsis:

I’m no Prince Charming, and the last thing I want is a Cinderella.

My instructions were simple: scour the city for a fake fiancée who’s not my type at all. Have her on my jet Monday morning, dressed appropriately for a yacht vacation.

I need a woman believable enough to convince a certain client that I’ve changed my playboy ways…yet nothing like the supermodels and socialites I usually have on my arm.

Somebody too annoying to tempt me—no emotional entanglements, thank you very much. This is business only.

If she’s unfazed by my looks and wealth, all the better.

Should be easy. Right?

Apparently not, because my people go and hire Tabitha. My hairdresser.

What were they thinking? Yes, I said annoying, but I didn’t mean her, the most frustrating woman in the world.

Tabitha is sunshiny. She has a pet hamster. She loves Hello Kitty, and she gets under my skin like nobody else.

As if that’s not bad enough, the minute we step on deck, she thinks that certain people on the yacht are up to something shady—based completely on her soap opera knowledge.

She won’t listen when I tell her she’s being ridiculous.

But as the days go by, I find that we’re actually having fun. And our fake kisses are heating up. And suddenly her wild theories aren’t sounding so strange after all…

The Billionaire’s Fake Fiancée is the first Annika Martin book I’ve read even though I have had  one of her books in my kindle for awhile. I decided to join this blog tour because I was feeling for some rom-com.

“And newsflash: from now on, I’ll be answering to kitten. Because I’m unbelievably cute, but oh my god do I have claws.”

Rex is the head of Rex O’Rourke and Tabitha is his hairdresser. She feels they have a certain connection in spite of Rex’s seeming annoyance with her and then she’s hired as his fake fiancee. I loved Tabitha and Rex was alright character but I didn’t enjoy the romance as much as I thought I would have. Rex and Tabitha’s bander was funny and all but I didn’t really feel much about it and I feel like Tabitha forgave her too easily.

I liked how Tabitha was obsessed with soap operas, especially with Days of Our Lives which I used to watch with my sister as a kid.

All in all a good read. I rarely read rom-coms and it was nice to read something out of my comfort zone. I like how they both were able to let down their facades and let each other see what they were really like.
