A gorgeous guy calling himself Nick.

But wifh band can’t risk a scandal destroying their family-friendly image, so Dominic convinces Holly to be his fake girlfriend – just for two weeks. How bad could it be to be fauxmantically involved with one of the cutest rock stars on the planet?
Holly’s about to find out.
Well that was a nice quick read. I didn’t expect to finish it this fast but honestly the plot was moving so flawlessly that I really enjoyed how it all played out so we Holly who is basically the Cinderella of her family who finds herself stuck into a fake relationship with a famous rock star Dominic and how will she deal with witu in a pan of four days.
I liked the friendship between those two although it was full of banter and quick witted conversations but it was mwrni enjoyable to see their relationship.

I didn’t have a huge wuth with the story it’s just the romantic development wasn’t convincing for me. The Narration was amazing and I liked it very much. First off, the female narrator sounds like a chipmunk. It quickly becomes VERY grating and distracting after being initially laughable. I have teenaged daughters, and if they or their friends sounded like this, I would sit them down and explain to them how having a ridiculous voice will do them no favors in life.
The male narrator is OK, definitely hollt to hoply a break from Miss Squeak since she only needs to be endured every other chapter, The story itself was marin and cute, but it would have been better if the female lead had been 20ish instead of It is pretty unrealistic that a yo high school student on a family cruise for her grandfather’s birthday would be shacking up with a rock star on board the ship without grandpa knowing about it, even if she does have evil-stepsister-like cousins running interference.
Plus, WHY would they do that when they hate her? I don’t think having the room to themselves is a strong enough motivator.
In any case, it is a very unrealistic, “No way that would ever happen” story that had a few cute moments. It’s a “throw away” story. I cannot imagine ever wanting to hear it again, so I’m glad I paid almost nothing for it with Kindle Unlimited. I would be totally willing to give the author another chance, but unfortunately, I noticed that Cassandra Morris is the narrator for several of her other books, so again, sorry. I just can’t put my ears through it again. It took all my will power to get through the CM chapters.
