Sometimes bad isn’t good enough…
On the outside, Lyle Tarpin is a clean-cut Hollywood actor whose star is on the rise. Inside, he’s battling his own demons, shunning relationships and finding solace in the arms of a string of anonymous women paid very well for their discretion.
But when he’s photographed in a compromising position by an over-eager reporter, the only way to save his career is to say that the woman he was with is his fiancée. And now Lyle has to play a very public game with the only woman who’s ever managed to get under his skin.
Struggling waitress Sugar Laine agrees to spend one night with Lyle—but only because she’s desperate to save her family home. She never expects that a night of passion will turn into a pretend engagement … or that the heat between them will blossom into love.
But sometimes love has a price.


We’re walking a very thin line, he and I. And I’m not at all sure where pretending ends and reality begins.

Lyle Tarpin, the sought after Hollywood golden boy has a secret, he’s got a penchant for call girls. Sugar Laine, is desperate and broke, her waitressing career not enough to save the one thing she has left . Although the story isn’t a new one, this world wind romance is a tale of instant chemistry and finding love unexpectedly.

In a well written addition to all things Stark, J. Kenner lays out wonderfully duplicitous characters with an amazing backdrop and aside to the saga. A story with mild conflict and and a steady slow burn, the push and pull will keep you turning the pages. In a realistic portrayal we learn once again that trust is difficult, and often has to be earned.

All I can be is me.
