Summary

Little Miss Sunshine will make the perfect fake bride to take home for the holidays…who cares if I’m her boss?

She’s going to drive me nuts.

Nevertheless, her perky everything, endless legs, and innocent eyes will come in handy.

It’ll stop my family from pushing every country girl turned wanna-be Dallas socialite on me.

The town gossips will be disappointed she’s not another one of my fiancées that’ll never make it down the aisle. And they’ll be jealous when every man falls in love with her.

I’ll ignore everyone and work…except when she’s fueling my warped needs.

Although she did surprise me and negotiated a higher prenup for her silly cupcake bakery.

Too bad for her, I’m not a reckless billionaire—my attorney will find the loophole.

Once January 2nd arrives, I’m divorcing her.

Except the more we’re together, the more she’s infiltrating my heart… in ways that have me second guessing our secret arrangement…

Holiday Hoax is a billionaire fake marriage, enemies to lovers, office romance. It’s a slow-burn steamy standalone novel with a grumpy hero who has a broken past and a good girl spitfire heroine who keeps him on his toes.

thoroughly enjoyable

if you are looking for a Christmas romance then this is your book, it has the fake marriage wich obviously leads to true love with a misunderstanding that turns into a HEA. it was just what I was looking for and the fact Maggie wrote it was even better. I can't wait to get started on her billionaire series in the new year. the narration for this book was perfect with both narrator's doing a stella job, I love you Aiden but this time Ava stole the show.

Perfect Festive Fake Bride Romance

I love listening to Maggie Cole and this festive, fake bride romance was not only refreshing, uplifting and entertaining, it was also the perfect holiday escape.

Georgia is a sweet Texas girl whose dream is to open a cupcake franchise in memory of her grammy. Sebastian is her new grumpy boss who is waiting to inherit the CEO position from his father. Sebastian is told by his father to return home for a month over Christmas, something he is not looking forward to as, after a handful of failed engagements that are still the talk of the town, the last thing he wants is for his mother to continue her matchmaking quest. He comes up with an idea that he needs to take a fake bride with him and decides to offer Georgia a contract to become his fake wife for a month, in exchange for enough money for her to set up a cupcake business.

Nothing goes to plan though, as not only does Sebastian start to fall for his 'Little Miss Sunshine' but Georgia quickly has Sebastian's family falling in love with her. What happens though when they grow too close and the agreed annulment date grows near? One thing is for sure, you will really enjoy this well narrated book as you find out.

I'm already a fan of Aiden Snow and I loved how I was really drawn in by his and Ava Lucas' Texan accents - it really gave the story an excellent edge to it, something that I would have missed, had I just read the book.

If you are looking for the perfect Christmas feel good audio book then look no further as this audio has it all, from hot scenes to holding your breath for the will they/won't they moments, you won't want to press pause on this Christmas treat. Enjoy!

Amazing

Oh these characters are so well written. They balance out each other perfectly. I love how our leading lady doesn’t change her values at all. A brilliant performance.

Happy Holidays!

If you want to get into the holiday spirit, look no further! Maggie Cole will grab you from the start with her fake marriage, office romance! I was prepared to enjoy this one, but I was pulled in and could not stop listening! Georgia is interning to save enough money to begin her dreams. Opening a cupcake franchise is what she wants, and with her plan in place, she has begun. Sebastian is her grumpy boss, waiting to take over the business when his father finally decides to retire. Only now there is a condition for his position as CEO, and spending a month with the family couldn't be that bad, could it? Well, if he is going to do it, he is going to bring a pretend fiance and get married while he is there to keep his mother from trying to fix him up. Georgia, or Miss Sunshine as he likes to call her, is the perfect candidate. Always seeing the silver lining in things, he knows she will be a good fit with his family for this short contract. What these two don't plan on is really liking each other. And as their feelings grow, the wedding planned and life being great, we can only imagine what is going to happen. Cole has a warm, embraceable family, a misunderstood man and a wonderfully warm and compassionate woman all packed into this fun, holiday listen. It's just what I love to hear this time of year and could not have been better.

Ok, that's not true. Aiden Snow and Ava Lucas made it even better. This team could not have been better cast for this story. I fell into their narrative and was happy to be in this world with their expressive voices. It's like an early Christmas present and one I absolutely loved!

🎄I WAS HO..HO..HOPELESSLY ADDICTED🎄

I do love a good ’fake’ marriage story and, when one comes up that’s been written by one of my favorite authors, I one click and dive right in. And Ms Cole didn’t disappoint.. in fact she excelled at pulling me into Sebastian and Georgia’s crazy beautiful world where you know their well thought out temporary marriage plans was somehow going to spectacularly backfire. It was all there.. the attraction, the chemistry, the secondary supportive family, the sizzles, the festive cheer.. and the love. But devastation and heartbreak was waiting too when..…. well that’s Ms Cole’s delicious story to tell. Well, along with Ava and Aiden who were the perfect fit to give Sebastian and Georgia’s hopeful, happy, heartbroken and healed points of view. Their narration brought the wealth of feels, character flaws and growth and secondary cast of family members to life.. along with the well-woven warmth and wonders of forgiveness and the festive fireworks of second chances.

Worth a credit? I was ho-ho-hopelessly addicted to dreams, cupcakes, reforming a broody CEO and happily ever afters.. and yes very creditworthy.

Rotten Georgia Peach

I wanted a fun holiday romance but I suffered through this instead. It wasn’t bad writing, it was Georgia. She’s a terrible character and a whiny brat throughout the book. She’s dramatic, jumps to conclusions, and gets upset with Sebastian. Rinse and repeat. She can’t trust him because of something he did before he really knew her. Then she acts blameless but she knew what she was getting into when she signed the contract. I don’t feel bad for her at all and I’m really not surprised she only has one friend. And poor Sebastian, he didn’t deserve the way he was treated. Sunshine she is not. If anything, I need to give the author credit for writing a character so awful that I dislike her enough to leave a review.

Love story for sure

The female character was in the beginning very forgiving and toward folks that didn’t matter at the time but when it came to listening and giving real forgiveness she really did suck. The male character may have been a jerk but at least he admitted his faults whereas she acted like a shit.

Sweet Holiday Romance!

This is a sweet Holiday Office Romance, and Fake Marriage Billionaire Romance. I loved it! Sebastian and Georgia’s slow burn romance is sweet and heartwarming. Sebastian is a grumpy boss, handsome, and determined. Georgia Peach is an interesting character, sunshine, naive, impulsive, stubborn, loyal, and supportive. They are opposites attract. The ending is beautiful, and heartwarming. Ava Lucas and Aiden Snow did a good job with the narration. I enjoyed it.

A Fantastic Holiday Romance

Holiday Hoax is a fun and entertaining holiday romance. The storyline is enjoyable, with lovable characters and plenty of steam. Georgia and Sebastian have amazing chemistry together and I greatly enjoyed their witty banter. They are complete opposites but yet they fit together perfectly. Georgia got on my nerves towards the end with her stubbornness, but I loved how Sebastian pulled out all the stops to win her back.
I loved reading this book, but the audio is even better. Ava Lucas and Aiden Snow did an amazing job bringing Georgia and Sebastian to life. I highly recommend this holiday romance!!
