Review originally posted at Romancing the Book
This book was a quick, fun and easy read. There was laughter, tears, heartache, romance, love, family and friends.
The main characters, Melissa and Garth, were so easy to love and get to know. They each had many layers to their persona but each was able to see through the other even when they just had an “arrangement” and fought their chemistry as much as possible. I rooted for their love to overcome their fears almost from page one.
I loved their interactions with each other since I couldn’t tell how it would go – nothing cookie cutter about their relationship. They both had a soft spot for his grandmother Nan who was a hoot by herself along with her/his three dogs. Watching their attraction become love, which neither could believe or initially wanted, was heartwarming. It was also nice to see Garth’s romantic side come out no matter how much he fought it. There was nice closure, due to the epilogue, and I hope the series continues since I found out this is book 2.
I have not read books by Scott before but look forward to reading others especially Rules of Negotiation where Melissa and her family were first introduced. This book was reminiscent to me of Weekend Agreement by Barbara Wallace. I’m finding that I’m definitely partial to romances with billionaires as one of the main characters. The Boss’s Fake Fiancée did not disappoint.
Give it a try – you’ll be glad you did!
Favorite Quote: He grabbed hold of the other end of the seesaw and swung one leg over. Melissa cautiously lowered her weight onto her side, keeping her feet on the ground. But of course as she did, Garth lowered his own weight, jerking her high into the air.
“Whoa!” Melissa slipped to one side and almost lost her balance. She righter herself a moment later. “Okay, fine. You’ve got some skills.” She bounced experimentally, but couldn’t move her side any lower.

I read political thrillers and murder mysteries a majority of the time, but every once in a while, I want something sweet and charming. This book completely satisfied that need! I knew fromt he first page how it would end, but throroughly enjoyed getting to that happy ending. There were a few surprises along the way, too.Was this review helpful?

This is a great romantic story! You will laugh, cry, and scream at Garth for being sometimes a little obtuse!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
Melissa is a great character. She is funny, independent and easily likeable. Her choices may sometimes be questionable, but you will surely enjoy this book. This is the stuff romance stories are truly made out of!

## Amazing read. I absolutely adored the first book (Tori and Brit's story) so I thought I'd give this a try. I'm glad I did.Honestly, I did not like the hero at first; not until I found out what drove him to be so cold. Then he grew on me. Even so, I loved the book. It was really fun to read. There is even a terrific drunken scene that had me laughing out loud. My recommendation is to read both books in order for maximum enjoyment. Can't wait for Ross' story. Nice job Ms. Scott.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Last night I started and finished a stunning story by Inara Scott, which is The Boss's Fake Fiancée. Let me share this remarkable read and what I thought about it.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
If you remember last month I read Rules of Negotiation and absolutely love the book. Well, Inara's next book is just as good as the last one.
If you got a chance to read Rules of Negotiation or my review you would remember that Brit Bencher tried to help his sister Melissa get a job at Solen Labs. Fortunately, she was able to get hired at Solen Labs with the help of Tori.
Anyways, while at a conference Melissa runs into her scumbag ex-boyfriend Mark Venshiner and accidently insinuates that she was with her boss Garth Solen. Nothing like petty revenge, but that kind of stuff tends to backfire. Her opportunistic ex decides to tip off the press that there might be something going on between Garth and Melissa, which creates a massive news storm.
Doesn't help that Garth's grandmother reads the story in the New York Star Herald and demands to meet the girl who caught his heart. Now Garth and Melissa have to make a fake engage work in order to make sure his grandmother doesn't get worst. Man that puts a lot pressure on them. Can this all work out or will it all backfire?
As I said in the beginning I read this last night. Seriously, I couldn't put it down. I loved the story from cover to cover. ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! You have hot and smart Garth Solen, who is refer to as the human computer. There's a really good reason why he is refer to as the human computer and you understand why he is emotionally unavailable. However, he is able to love fiercely once trust is earned. Yes, he has some trust issues, but you just can't help loving him. Melissa is so patient and understanding.
Overall, The Boss's Fake Fiancée had me laughing out loud at times and pretty much rolling at the things that were said. It also had me tearing up parts. At times I felt my heart in my throat, I never thought I would say something like that. I can't stress enough that this was absolutely amazing and really do hope you get a chance to read this marvelous story.
