A sexy, sizzling, and deliciously fun standalone romance from the New York Times Bestselling author of Big Rock and Full Package!

Once upon a time in New York City, there was a down-on-his-luck actor named Reeve, who was talented and gorgeous in that dreamy, broody sort of way that makes all the women swoon. But show biz is a rough biz - he lost out on a part in a big film, and now his day job hours have been cut too. What's a handsome young thing in need of a role to do? Sign up to be the fake fianc of the sexy and shrewd casting director Sutton Brenner, who must appear temporarily attached if she's to land a coveted gig casting a red-hot film. So Sutton strikes a pact with Reeve to play the role of her fianc until she closes the deal. The trouble is - she's sexy-as-hell and damn near irresistible to him. And he's not only a great guy, but also the best dirty talker she's ever met. It doesn't take long for their pretend love affair to heat up, especially after that toe-curling night in the balcony of the Broadway theater. And that scorching afternoon in the stacks of the New York Public Library.

A red-hot love affair. An intense connection. But as the lines between make-believe and matters of the heart blur, can two people working in the world of acting fake it til they make it?

PRETENDING HE'S MINE is part of the New York Times & USA Today Bestselling CAUGHT UP IN LOVE series and each book can be read as a standalone.**

I bought the boxed set Tangled Up In Love which included: Caught Up In Us Pretending He's Mine Trophy Husband Playing With Her Heart These can all be read as stand alone books but I recommend reading them in the above order. They are all wrapped up in each other, both character and timewise. In the boxed set, there are 648 pages (NOOK). All four books are about finding love and what it means to each different set of couples. There are also steamy love scenes in all the books, which is always good, right? Lauren Blakely's writing style is smooth and very believable. You can picture all the characters as if they were your neighbors or best friends. I highly recommend this series.

A Review of Pretending He's Mine by Lauren Blakely Lines between make-believe and matters of the heart - 5+++++ stars Sutton Brenner is a casting director, proud of her British heritage. She is one of the top women in her profession of being able to choose the right man for every role that she casts. She has a Chihuahua-Mini-Pin dog named The Artful Dodger. She is trying to win the contract of casting a new movie, Escorted Lives, working with the British twin film financiers Frederick and Nicholas Pinkerton. However, Janelle (wife of Frederick) is the one that really holds the purse strings and she is trying to prevent her husband from working with unattached women. When Sutton is mistakenly thought to be recently engaged, Sutton decides to play along and hire a fiancé until the decision is made. Reeve Larkin grew up in Ohio with his Father being a cop and his Mother teaching high school English, but his passion was to be an actor. He is currently between acting roles, so he works as a bike messenger to pay the bills. So, Reeve is offered the role by Sutton and things quickly get hot and heavy. We see Josie in this book (from Josie and Chase's story), as well and Kat and Bryan, which I totally loved. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and look forward to any of Ms. Blakely's other books. **Honest review voluntarily provided for purchased product.**

Swoon Worthy Lauren Blakely knows how to write an awesome romance.  Reeve is such a romantic at heart and willing to put it on the line unlike most male characters.  Sutton is a hard nosed woman unwilling to admit what she wants most, which makes it all the better that Reeve is willing to fight for her.

"Tell me. Tell me where you want my lips." "Between my legs," she said with a moan... "You do, Sutton? Are you sure?" She nodded. Her face was red with heat. Her mouth was dry. She could barely speak.. "Yes." "You want me to take off your jeans?" "Yes." "And throw them on the floor of your apartment?" "Yes." "And pull off your panties?" "Yes," she said in a broken whisper. "And push you back on your bed. And place my hands on the inside of your thighs and have you spread your legs open for me? You'd want me to do that?" "So much. So f***g much," she said..."And lick you? You'd want me to taste how hot you are, right? Because I can feel it through your jeans. I can tell you are so unbelievably wet for me, aren't you?" "Yes" Lauren Blakely, Pretending He's Mine Oh my..{sighs} fanning self. I Loved!! "Pretending He's Mine". It is a flirty, sweet, steamy read. It starts out a slow burn that builds into an exhilarating heat.. Reeve has a dirty mouth and knows exactly how to use it, he has to be one of the best dirty talkers...I have come across. He had me fanning myself and blushing at every turn. I will never view the theater or library in the same way again. I actually felt lightheaded while reading the restaurant scene, excerpts of which are quoted above. If you like a smooth talker Reeve is definitely the right man for the job. He can use his dirty mouth on me any time!! Sutton Brenner is a well know casting director. Reeve Larkin is an actor in need of a job. The relationship between Sutton and Reeve begins as a business proposition that promises to benefit them both, but soon sparks are flying between them and the lines between business and pleasure are not so easy to define. The chemistry between Sutton and Reeve is seductive and irresistible. He is sexy and confident and not afraid to go after what he wants and he wants Sutton. While Sutton is definitley attracted to Reeve, she is confused by those feelings. He is after all an actor, is what's happening between them real or is he just living up to his end of their business agreement? Can Sutton let down her walls and truly let Reeve in? Will they both get what they want and need. This is such a fun, hot story.. You can't go wrong picking up "Pretending He's Mine" by Lauren Blakely

## Yes, it was a tad short. But still fabulous. I loved both the hero and heroine. Reeve was drool-worthy turning Sutton on with innuendo and dirty talk that was intoxicating. I adored the wine closet scene. Fun, flirty and sexy read.
