Kennedy Mitchell’s got it all: brains, beauty, and a successful business. As the cofounder of the PR company, Token, she helps corporate clients recover their reputations after public blow-ups and assists them in diversifying their staff. After ending a serious relationship, following yet another unwanted proposal, she decides to lay low and stay single for a while. When her best friend’s brother, Nate, is embroiled in a scandal at his company, Kennedy immediately jumps to his defense. But these two have a sexy past that neither has been able to forget. Working on Nate’s case necessitates pretending to be a couple, a situation that becomes more real every day.
VERDICT This smart and steamy novel from Kendall (Played) will appeal to readers who enjoy their contemporary romance with a healthy dose of social commentary and story lines featuring fake dating and strong female friendships. Give to fans of Jasmine Guillory.
