Lights, camera, lies.

Kerry Pickering has a problem. As a publicist for Hollywood bad boy Jericho Knox, it’s Kerry’s job to keep Jericho in the news. So far, Jericho’s partying and public escapades have made it easy. But Jericho has a secret, and when that secret is revealed in the most spectacularly disastrous way, it’s up to Kerry to spin it.

The team decides the best course of action is to make the public fall in love—with Jericho’s secret committed relationship. The one that doesn’t exist. Yet.

The team wants someone they can trust. Someone in the inner circle. That someone is Kerry. But what will happen when Kerry realizes that for him, the romance is no longer pretend? Can Jericho love him back, or is he just playing a role?

Story Review:

I had a great time listening to this story. I loved the premise and for the most part the execution was well done. I connected to both MCs and really felt like I understood the transformation from enemies to tolerable friends to lovers. My only complaint was that the rationale behind the angst came out of nowhere and made little sense to me. It didn’t have the right backstory for it to be believable as anything other than something the author inserted to fulfill a plot point.

However, I still highly enjoyed this one and loved the way it ended. I would listen to this one again when I am in the mood for this trope.

Narration Review:

John Solo read this one well. It was not my favorite by him as it didn’t have the types of characters he excels at, but he performed it well and I enjoyed listening to his voice.
