Is she his worst nightmare…

No relationships, that’s billionaire Garth Solen’s rule—especially not with a woman like his new employee Melissa Bencher, who thinks with her heart and not her head. But all bets are off when Melissa tries to make her jerk ex-boyfriend jealous by suggesting that she’s dating her gorgeous boss. How could she have imagined all the trouble one impu

Melissa has been working for Garth for several months after a horrible break up. The break up was with her former boss leaving her horribly despondent. Now working for Garth she has recreated herself. Armed with a better fitted wardrobe and new hairstyle she takes on her new job with gusto and absolutely enjoys it.

At a work related event she runs into her former douche-bag boyfriend/boss. When the X starts making remarks about Garth she sticks up for him and trying to get a dig in at her forme

The Boss's Fake Fiancée by Inara Scott was an emotional and uplifting story as readers will follow the journey of how complete opposites, Garth Solen and Melissa Bencher fall in love.

The story started off a little slow for me, but then the pace did pick and I saw the chemistry between them and wanted to see more.

Garth seemed rather detached at first and rarely showed any emotions whatsoever except when he thought or interacted with his grandmothe
WOW! This is the first book I've read of Inara Scott's and it definitely wont be my last. I find authors start off with a female character that is generally just an awesome chick when the book first starts off, but I find the also have this problem of turning them into something awful. They become just stupid and maybe even beyond selfish. This did not happen with Melissa at all. I LOVED her from the beginning and I loved her even more at the end.

Melissa always apologized when she felt she did

I really enjoyed Garth and Melissa's story. I thought the premise behind the fake engagement worked well and the chemistry between Garth and Melissa was sizzling the whole way through. I really liked Garth's character--he was complicated and different and had an exceedingly good reason for his actions and feelings that made him truly compelling. I also liked that there was more at stake for Melissa than just her heart - her career and her professional reputation were on the line too, which gave ...more

This was a fun and easy read for me. The book was well written and I love the chemistry between the main characters. Garth is a very interesting hero. He was diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome which made social interaction difficult for him. He is known as a "human computer" because he's very smart and got no emotions. Melissa is working for the "human computer" and she's been crushing on him for a while. After her break-up with his cheating boyfriend, she's still not ready to meet her

This book was a quick, fun and easy read. There was laughter, tears, heartache, romance, love, family and friends.

The main characters, Melissa and Garth, were so easy to love and get to know. They each had many layers to their persona but each was able to see through the other even when they just had an “arrangement” and fought their chemistry as much as possible. I rooted for their love to o
Wow.I am out of word . due to the tear and laugh I have spend in this book.

When I started reading this novel. I never imagine this will make me chuckle in the first half
and then bring me to tear at the very end.

For real, I absolutely love everything about this book.
I love all the character , all sweet atmosphere , all the detail.
and all the sentence that combine to be this book, love it all

This book touched my heart as I have a son with Aspergers. Thank you for the beautiful love story of Garth and Melissa.

Last night I started and finished a stunning story by Inara Scott, which is The Boss's Fake Fiancée. Let me share this remarkable read and what I thought about it.

If you remember last month I read Rules of Negotiation and absolutely love the book. Well, Inara's next book is just as good as the last one.

If you got a chance to read Rules of Negotiation or my review you would remember that Brit Bencher tried to help his sister Melissa get a job at Solen Labs.

Review posted at Books to Brighten your Mood

The Boss's Fake Fiancee is soooo much better than the first book in this series Rules of Negotiation. So much better that you can't even imagine it! It sucked me from the first page and until the very last one I just couldn't put it down. It's cute and sexy and fun and a romance title that I absolutely loved.

If you read my review of Rules of Negotiation, you know that I had some problems with the characters, but the writing style was so good that I man

Melissa Bencher is at a fundraiser for her boss and his company when she sees her cheating bastard of an ex slide his way toward her across the dance floor. Since she can't get away, she grits her teeth and tries to stay cool. Unfortunately, the unapologetic twit gets under her skin (who could blame her - he slept with her [ex]best friend?!) and she ends up "confessing" her secret relationship with her boss, Garth Solen. Little does she know th

The Boss's Fake Fiancee is Inara Scott's newest romance novel for ADULTS, yes it's in caps, because it's not for you actual young adults in the audience. We have rescinded our earlier decision to stick to YA only because I adore a good steamy romance and Inara Scott always delivers. So when she approached me about whether I'm still reviewing adult titles as well as YA, I had a little chat with Lana and we decided we will no longer be specializing in any genre. Ahem, ok, so explanation over.

First off, I just need to say damn can Inara Scott write. I love her books. I enjoy her YA, but her romances just hit her fabulous YA out of the ball park. Seriously, The Boss's Fake Fiance was just sheer perfection. I will never tire of reading her books and already I am counting down to the next one!

This is one steamy romance. The chemistry and attraction between Melissa and Garth just leaps off the page. One page one, I was instantly sold on their story and completely locked in. There are so
Such a great read, I was sucked in !
This book grabbed me probably because it reminded me of being the odd person out, and the feeling of wanting to fit in but being afraid to reachout and the fear of being hurt.

Both of these characters have dealt with that and both a little differently ,but the authors has the two fit together beautifully and you ind yourself rooting for everything to work out and the people who have hurt the and still lockdown at them t get there comupence!

Kitap aslında benzerini birçok defa okuduğunuz harlequin romanlarına benziyordu. Şöyle ki, adam sosyal yetenekleri güçsüz, çocukluğunda ailesini kaybetmiş, o travmanın etkisini hala atlatamamış, bilgisayar adam diye bahsedilen biri. Kesinlikle duygu göstermiyor, hepsini çok iyi bir şekilde maskesinin altına gizliyor. Kızımız ise aslında deli dolu, sevimli biri ama geçmişinde yaşadığı ilişkiden çok yara aldığı için temkinli davranıyor. Kızımız Me

"I wasn't sure if he'd ever find someone to unlock that heart of his, but now that I've met you, Melissa, I'm not the least bit surprised he finally did. You know what a hard time he has opening up to people. Finding a woman he could trust is a blessing I wasn't sure I'd ever see in my lifetime." - Grandma Nan

the plot is quite familiar but what i liked is that the issue on who made the rumor was out at the very start. rather than making it the major conflict it became the starting point that pushed the story forward.
i likr melissa she seems to be feisty and independent despite her past. i also like garth but his behavior near the middle and the end was a bit annoying (though which was explained later in the story).

Very intense read that tugs at my heartstrings with the perfect blend of tension, love, humor, sadness & pain. I caught myself laughing & tearing up. I had my heart in my throat all the time.

Nice, easy read that kept me turning the page. I enjoyed the conflict between the h/h and I felt very sympathetic to their individual insecurities and issues in getting together. Funny lines and some hot love scenes. Felt like this was part of a series in the characters that were introduced, but the story didn't suffer for it, and was easy enough to follow along. The only thing that detracted from my rating is my disbelief at the ending of the book - while it was very sweet, I didn't quite buy t ...more
I really liked this book. I didn't read the first book but I love series, especially ones with close siblings. The story seems typical with the employee and the boss having to fake a romance and then truly falling for each other. The twist for me was that the hero truly had a disorder to make him feel unlovable. I was worried when I started the book that the issue between them was going to be the usual issue of how he just doesn't want to settle down. I think the fact that he has this disorder a ...more
Melissa has recently started working for Garth's company. She'd moved back to the area after her last relationship had broken up due to her ex-boyfriend's infidelity. This was particularly crushing for Melissa because she'd moved away from all her family and friends to be with and work for the boyfriend, Mark, and came home to find him cheating on her with her only friend in the area. It's taken Melissa a long time to get over it, but she loves her new job and is pretty attracted to her new boss ...more

As I have mentioned before on other romance books I have read and commented on, I don't usually review these nor are these my usual type of books, but my goodness Inara Scott did an amazing job with this one. Had me reading up till 1am to finish it in one sitting and I do not regret the lack of sleep at all. It even had me tearing up at the end. I'm not gonna go into details of any kind just know that it is definitely worth a try.
Loved it! Had a great storyline with a twist that makes perfect sense. Definitely need a tissue for the heart strings that get pulled.

This was an okay read, typical, and just a novel you would wanna sit down to and not commit to. The storyline wasn't all that fresh, but it had its cute elements. I enjoyed how there were some geeky elements to it, not much but it was still there. The heroine was pretty strong and non-cliche type. But I have to say, despite the story being pretty fast paced and cute, the ending was god. Such a gag reflexing, cliche move. Neh, in was still able to get through it, just the epilogue... Ugh.

Let me just say, I did not read the first book. However, that did not change anything. This book could definitely be a stand-alone.
This was a different read than what I have been reading, and I loved it! The setting, the mood, the suspense on how everything would work out… BRILLIANT! The storyline takes off right in the beginning, so you will never want to stop, seriously.

When Melissa hints at the possibility that she and her boss are dating to her ex-boyfriend, she never imagined that it would blow up in her face like it did. She expected her ex to confront her boss or even make a scene but she didn't expect to be on the cover of tabloids and she sure as hell wasn't expected her boss to come up with a crazy plan to run with the story the tabloids printed about them being engaged. With his tabloid loving grandmother in poor health, he is backed into a corner when ...more

I wrote my first book when I was in high school--a romance called "A Wild and Stormy Passion," which featured swordplay, kidnapping, a pirate heroine, and lots of naughty bits (that came entirely from my adolescent imagination!). Since then, I've written young adult novels and adult romances of the category, contemporary, and fantasy varieties. My books are romantic, sensual, and unconventional.
