It’s only pretend…  

And it’s only three months. 

I’m in the midst of scrawling “I QUIT!” onto his fancy cardstock letterhead when my boss corners me. He needs a favor, he says. And then he asks how well I can act … 

Hudson Rutherford needs a fiancée. 

With his old-moneyed parents forcing him to marry some bratty hotel heiress and his hedonistic, playboy lifestyle at stake, the only way to get them to back off is to make them think he’s truly, madly, deeply in love … with me—his third personal assistant this year. 

But I can hardly stand working for him as it is. 

Hudson is crazy hot and well-aware. He’s arrogant, spoiled, and silver-spooned. He checks me out when he thinks I’m not looking, and his life is a revolving door of beautiful women. Plus, he can’t even pronounce my name correctly—how’s he going to convince his family he’s in love with me?! 

I’m seconds from giving him a resounding “no” when he flashes his signature dimpled smirk and gives me a number that happens to contain a whole mess of zeroes … 

On second thought, I think I can swallow my pride. 

But, oh baby, there’s one thing I haven’t told him, one teensy-tiny thing that could make this just a hair complicated … 

Here’s hoping this entire thing doesn’t explode in our faces.

What a fun and romantic reading escape! The Perfect Illusion by Winter Renshaw was the perfect book to get me out of my book funk. I have picked up many books and none would hold my interest because let’s face it, when you get a book funk #TheStruggleIsReal 

Maribel has been working for Hudson Rutherford for two months. Enough is enough. Her boss is the biggest jerk she has ever met and she needs to find a new job ASAP. Her intention was to quit the moment she walked in to work. Instead, Hudson offers her a deal she can’t refuse. He needs a fiancée and Maribel is the perfect person for his plan. As days go by, the lines between what is real and what is fake begins to blur for Maribel and Hudson. Will they be able to go their separate ways once everything is said and done? 

The cover and the blurb is what captivated me. Once I met the characters, I knew that this was going to be a wonderful reading journey! Maribel and Hudson completely stole my heart and I was cheering for their HEA from the very beginning. Their chemistry is amazing and their banter is pretty awesome! 

Winter Renshaw did a fantastic job with the Fake Fiancé trope. This book left me with a happy heart and a smile on my face! I read the Fake Fiancé storyline a few times so I was pretty sure that I knew what was coming. Boy was I wrong! I completely forgot about the storyline and fell for Mr. Control Freak just like Maribel did. I loved how they got to know each other and how they slowly fell in love. The author included a twist I did not see coming and a fantastic cast of characters. 


I give, The Perfect Illusion, by Winter Renshaw, 4.5 romantic, fun, sweet, falling for your boss stars!
