He walks the red carpet. She’s more familiar with vacuuming one.

When a scandal tarnishes the reputation of hot as hell A-lister, Patrick Walsh, he needs a reputation rescue, pronto.

Enter waitress Norah Peers–a nobody who’s average with a capital A. She’s available, dependable, and has sworn off men for the rest of her natural born life. In other words: the perfect match for a no-strings fake romance.

For the right amount of money, she can avoid waitressing and play the part of his dependable down-to-earth girlfriend. What she can’t avoid–dammit–is the growing steam between them.

But being hounded by the paparazzi and having your life dissected on social media is a panic attack in the making. And while Patrick might be a charming rogue on screen, in real life he’s a six-foot-two confusing, gorgeous, brooding grump, who keeps her at a distance . . . but also makes her feel like this bond between them might be more than just an act.

Being dumped on cue should be no big deal. Except being fake with Patrick is the realist relationship Norah has ever had. What’s a girl to do, but flip the script, and ask for a rematch made in Hollywood?

Patrick Walsh is a Hollywood actor who has tarnished a bit of his good boy reputation. He’s a brooding man of few words. But I believe his actions speak loud and clear. He loves being an actor and is good at what he does. Norah Peer is the girl next door. A hard working woman who is trying to make a life for herself and take care of her gran. She is the lucky waitress who gets to serve the famous Patrick Walsh. When the famous actor propositions the girl next-door with an offer to make both of their lives better it makes it very hard for her to refuse that amazing smile.
Kylie Scott shows off her talents in the first book of her West Hollywood Series FAKE. A modern day Cinderella story that’s got some of the best dialogue and internal monologue that that I have read in quite a while. Everything I love about Ms.Scott’s written is within the pages of Fake. A fun and sweet romance that will make you laugh out loud on many occasions. There were moments that I couldn’t tell that there was any thing fake about Paddy and Norah. I honestly enjoyed Fake much more than I thought I would.
