Summary

1 gossip writer + 1 A-list movie star = 1 fake relationship...or does it?

After breaking a story that rocks Hollywood, Talia is the top gossip writer around. One night will put all of that into question. The writer becomes the story when she gets caught doing the walk of shame from A-lister Zee Jaxon’s home.

To save both of their reputations he suggests a fake relationship. Pretending should be easy. It shouldn’t mean the fake feelings become real. Accepting the real feelings means the lies they’ve told are even harder to hide.

When the truth comes out can their love survive or will everything just fade to black?

Funny a good listen

I do enjoy listening to Holly Holt. Bought the humour
and the characters to life.

This is a entertaining book. It's a enemies to lovers. The enemies being Talia and her brother's best friend Zee.
Fake relationship, humour, romance. Perfect

A fun listen

This was a very enjoyable book with fantastic building on the main characters and their relationship. The drama was well written and there were a few parts that had me rewinding to savour. A great story

Romantic & funny

This was my first book by Jackie Paxson and I enjoyed it. An interesting mix of several tropes: frenemies-to-lovers, celebrity, and best friend’s sister told entirely from Talia’s POV. The was some sex, but this was heavy on the actual relationship. Excellent world building and we got to know many secondary characters I hope we’ll see in future books.

Honestly, what probably held this back from being 5 stars was the need for a beta reader or editor. There were several times where things were clunky or awkwardly phrased, the same adjectives were used multiple times in a row for various objects, or a sentence was repeated but rephrased.

It was still an enjoyable story though.

Holly Holt has a pleasant voice and I enjoy her narrations. I did feel like some of the male voices were a bit stilted but it won’t keep me from seeking out her work in the future.

I received a free copy of this audiobook and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Worth listening too

I enjoyed this book, it had an enemies to lovers, brothers best friend, and Cinderella feel to it. With a side of mystery added in. Loved the banter in this book.
Holly did a good job reading this book, once in a while it sounded stiff but overall good job.
I was given a free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Loved it!

Great story. Very entertaining. It was easy to feel the characters emotions through the telling of the tale.

I'm really looking forward to digging through more dirty laundry!

Cute and quirky

I liked this well enough. I feel like it’s a bit of a shame that maybe a beta read wasn’t done to unclunk some of the storyline maybe? I feel like there was a few repeats and stilted sentences.

Narration wise this was ok. I wasn’t the biggest fan of some of the adapted male voices but that’s just my personal opinion.

Fmc obviously has severe body issues because of past/current bullying which is awful. I am very glad as she grew up she managed to find a best friend who has her back and a twin who is fiercely loyal.

This is a I’ve loved you since we were kids troupe, it’s quite a clean romance, I wouldn’t say there’s smut. Sex scenes are not overly detailed.

This is my first time reading this author. I was gifted this audio and I’m providing my honest review.

Hilarious, Poignant, and More

I had previously read this book but the audio made me enjoy it even more. It's funny as all getup, poignant, bittersweet, loving, and so much more. The narrator was good, too.

Funny, sweet story!

This was a funny, sweet, a bit emotional entertaining story. Talia works for a tabloid paper and being at the right place at the right time she gets the scoop on a story on A list actor Zeke who happens to be her twin brother's best friend and her enemy. When caught in a compromised position Talia is now in a fake relationship with the one man she can't stand. While together feelings get blurred and truths are revealed will these two be able to overcome it to be together. I enjoyed listening to this story and look forward to more.

Zeke is just about perfect

Zeke is Talia's twin brothers best friend and they grew up together when circumstances force them together. Zeke lets his feeling for Talia come out and sparks begin. Loved this story about this couple look forward to reading more from this author in the future.
