Fake Husband, Real Daddy.
I've got the perfect kid, and I’ve got the perfect life.

It doesn't matter if it's fake.

The second Penny walked into my office, I knew I was f*cked.
Nineteen, sweet, soft, delicious.

3.5 STARS - i liked it. - Quick read
The story was cute and fun to read. Penny wanted to con Charlie out of millions. When she walked in on a conversation, she took advantage of the situation. What she didn't count on was falling for Charlie and his daughter. Charlie was a great guy. He was not the guy Penny thought he was. She realized there was more to him. There was a good plot and good characters. It may have been predictable in some spots but the story was en

Round up

3.6 stars

This was an enjoyable read but at the same time it was a little too fast paced for me. There are also a bunch of gaps in the storyline where Penny saw her father and it just was basically it was a major jumbo cluster. Basically also there was just too many gaps for me I want to read the story.
The sex was not off the charts but it was great.
I just wish that the Book was finished to me it's not like it wasn't.
Also the author included another book in which I did not read I only wa

I voluntarily reviewed an ARC copy of this book.

Penny and her friend decide to pull a con. They choose Charlie who has millions.
Penny gets her perfect chance to integrate herself into his life, she just hope he goes along with the rise.
What she doesn't expect is for him to be the exact opposite of what she expected.
What happens between the two read to find out.

pleasantly surprised!
Started out great but it started getting choppy as though chunks of the story flow were missing.

Overall, didn't feel the chemistry between MCs.

I received this book as an added bonus in book purchased The Baby Race. What a lovely surprise. Well the 3 extra books really. Bargain.
They say money is the root of all evil BUT it can be used for good as well. That is what Penny knows as her dad needs a special treatment. Problem is how to get some. Getting a job working for Billionaire businessman Charlie Thorne seems too good to be true, especially when she gets an unexpected chance to get closer to him. Now the fun begins.

Amazing story

Penny is desperate and has a plan to get "revenge" and a pay back. What she doesn't know is that the person that she targets is so much more than dollar bills.
Charlie is very private and a giving person. He wants the best for his family but doesn't want anyone messing that up.
Penny finds a way of helping Charlie and finds herself married and a mom?! Yes it is true...
Things are not ease but I love the HEA and the extended stories.. Thank you Holly. You left me wanting more after the

Whatever it Takes

That is what Charlie does to take care of the lady he loves, the little lady, his daughter. Penny jumps into the deep end of the pool when she takes the initiative and tells a little white lie that she and her brand new boss are together. He takes it a bit further and all of a sudden they are in water over their heads. I loved the main characters and the supporting cast with this wet story. Along the way there a few too many road bumps,angst and heartache but there is plenty of

Faking It by Holly Hart
I can count on a great read every time I pick up a book by Holly Hart. She has turned into one of my favorite authors. This story is about Charlie and Penny. Man do they have chemistry! He's 29, a single dad to an 11 year old girl. Penny is his new 19 year old formerly homeless PA. On her first day, Penny jumps in and announces they are married in front of a woman who was threatening his daughter. It sets up the story well. I received this ARC for my honest review.

Charlie is a wealthy business man who falls for his new hire, Penny. Penny begins a new job with Charlie's company with plans to steal from him to pay for her father's hospital care. She falls for Charlie instead. A rival is trying to take over Charlie's company. Just as Charlie discovers Penny's plans to steal from him, Penny stumbles onto information that will help Charlie keep his company and his daughter. HEA, no cliff hanger.

Just want to keep on reading.

Three stories in one book. 'Faking It' single daddy story. Penny tries to help her boss Charlie and things become a big mess. 'Let it Byrne' mafia story. Casey is in trouble with the Italian mafia and Declan leader of the Irish mob tries to save her. 'Kiss, Don't Tell' undercover agent story. Kim excited about her new job in London and a new start in life. Nate undercover agent wants to make Kim more than just another assignment.
This book was awesome! It felt like the most real erotica story I have ever read. Most seem very far fetched, but this one felt more down to Earth. Other than the fact that he is a billionaire and she makes a rash move that I couldn't imagine anyone doing...but I liked the single dad aspect and how he loved his daughter. Great story.

Good Storyline

Enjoyed the story; finished wanting to read more. The beginning was highly unlikely which didn't catch my interest, however, I was glad not to have put it down. Descriptive but not overly so..

This was an enjoyable story with a good H&h. The drama was a bit hit or miss - the best friend disappears and then turns up at the end of the book. The dad is coding then is at the wedding. But, since I'm just reading to escape, I try not to let it bother me too much, and I did enjoy the book.

I was given an ARC of this book for an honest review!
Loved it, I know, I know I say I love Holly's books all the time, but there just great stories to read! You get a good story, lots of action & plenty of living too! What's not to love!

Loved this story. Penny tries to help Charlie by saying that they are married so that CPS doesn't take Charlie's daughter away. After some ups and downs, they fall in love anyway. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.

jumps around a bit, has a few typo's not many but some are confusing in the line.
Has a bit of drama, but a happy ending. Would like to see it as a full book with the extended and deleted added in and more, if felt as though it left you hanging.

What would you be willing to do to bring a billionaire's money?? Fake a marriage? That's exactly what Penny does.

Holes in the story, spelling errors and wrong words. Sometimes it felt like she had forgotten what had been written on the previous page.

A Nineteen year old virgin (Penny) plays fake wife to a billionaire single dad (Charlie), who’s fearful that CPS will remove his daughter from his care. While Charlie reluctantly agrees to continue with the farce, he is blissfully unaware that Penny has an ulterior motive of her own—to con him out of money to help pay for her dying father’s care. It isn’t long before sparks begin to fly, and Penny decides to scrap her deceptive plans. Charlie too, re-evaluates his feelings, and st

Loved it more than I thought I would. Interesting characters and story. Quick easy read. Penny was sometime contradictory, between naive and Street smart. Definitely kept my interests. I received an ARC in exchange for honest review.

I really enjoyed this story! It was well written and interesting. Penny has had some really bad luck. She has done research on Charlie and is looking to get some money out of him. She doesn't plan to do it by marrying him and never planned for him to be the kind of guy he is. Charlie is a good guy and he keeps a lot of his good deeds on the down low, which is why Penny didn't know about them. Penny has a hard time when she starts figuring out that he has a daughter and is very generous and nice ...more

I make my bad boys jump from the frying pan into the fire, and straight into the heroine's bed. I like 'em bad, foul mouthed, and with eyes for the only woman in their life.
