Release Blitz for FAKING IT WITH #41 by Piper Rayne

Release Date: September 21


Fake.

 

Being the heir to Jacobs Enterprises, I’ve been around fake people my entire life. I promised myself a long time ago that I wouldn’t change for anyone. Which is the only reason I’m a professional hockey player who lives on the beach and does as he pleases without answering to anyone—except my father.

 

And now, my daughter.

 

Being a single dad wasn’t in the plan but after a one-night stand who took off after the baby was born, this is my reality.

 

My dad’s been harping on me to quit hockey and join the company for years and now that I’m a father, he’s only intensified his efforts. Until he makes me a deal I can’t refuse.

 

Insert Lena Boyd, the Jacobs’ family PR rep. She’s beautiful and intelligent and not at all the woman for me—ask anyone. 

 

My dad needs us to act happily engaged and sell the idea that we’re in love. If we’re successful I won’t have to join the family legacy—ever. Of course, I agree.

 

That’s when things get complicated. I thought I had her all figured out until I found out there was more underneath her judgmental sneers and eye rolls. It feels like everything is coming together for the future I really want—with Lena—until my past ruins everything.

Review by Gia:
 Faking It with #41 is book three in the Hockey Hotties series.  Each book covers a different couple so it can be read as a standalone.  I loved Ford right from the beginning.  He's a cocky hockey player and now a single dad.  He loves playing hockey and has no interest in working for or taking over the family business.  I loved Lena too.  She works for Ford's Dad.  She is sweet and nice and doesn't take a lot from Ford.  These two are great.  There's a lot of tension between them.  Both of them have layers and I loved seeing them see each other for who they were.  This one is a good read.  
5 Stars!!

Excerpt

Copyright 2021 Evelyn Sola

Just as I approach the corner, I’m hit on the shoulder by another body. I’m pushed to the wall, and the mountain of books in my hands crashes to the floor. The red folder holding my English term paper lands on top of the heap. “Watch where you’re going!” the person who bumped says. She doesn’t have the decency to stop, but by the sound of her giggles, I know who it is. And there’s no way the school’s most popular senior would give me the time of day. I sigh and drop to the floor to pick up my things. My heart starts to beat erratically because if there’s one thing I know—wherever Candace is, he’s never too far behind. I’m proven right. A pair of black boots enters my line of vision. Cooper Stevens. Those are his boots. He was wearing them the very first time I saw him, and I remember wanting to be swallowed up by the ground. The only thing that saved me from total embarrassment was the fact that I know someone like him would never notice someone like me. I hold my breath while he approaches and quickly turn to my books. Please leave. Please leave. Please leave. I busy myself arranging my books. I won’t stand up until he walks past me. Only he doesn’t. He drops down to my level and grabs my red folder. Instead of handing it to me, he opens it and starts to look through the pages. I finally find the courage to look at him, and our eyes lock. For the first time ever, I notice the hazel flecks around his brown eyes. I look away and drop my head, and because this is the day from hell, my glasses slide off my face and land on the floor. We reach for them at the same time, and his large hand ends up covering mine. I let out a small sound, and I say a silent prayer that he didn’t hear it. I note the contrast of our skin tones, his white hand covering my brown one before I pull mine away. He lifts my glasses and brings them to my face. I’m as still as a statue while I look down at the linoleum floor. He moves closer and slides the glasses back onto my face. I take a deep breath and bask in the smell of his leather jacket mixed with his fruity shampoo. When he gets the glasses on my face, he moves his hands behind my ears to make sure they are secure. “You okay?” he asks. He lifts my chin and forces me to look at him. Like a deer in headlights, all I can do is stare. “Be careful next time, Laces,” he whispers. I lick my dry lips. “Um, my name is—” The words get locked in my throat. I grab my books and finally stand up. He stands right along with me. When we’re both upright, he takes a step closer. “Your name is what?” he asks. He hands me my folder, and when I take it from him, his fingers touch mine. “Um, my name is—” I clear my throat and try again. The entire time he stares at me with an expression I can’t interpret. “My name isn’t, um—” I never get a chance to finish my sentence. “Cooper!” Candace yells in the hallway. She runs over to us and grabs the sleeve of his leather jacket. “Come on! What are you still doing here with her?” She points at me without bothering to look in my direction. “Let’s go. You did your good deed of the day. Maybe you should tell her to run a flat iron through that hair.” The entire time he was being dragged away, his head was turned in my direction, until they turned the corner and he disappeared.

We’re both playing the game. But who’s going to win?

Logan
I should get this promotion to the executive team. I have experience. Loyalty. Smarts.
But the one thing I don’t have is the one thing I’ve never been able to achieve: a family.
My personal life shouldn’t matter, but the executive team is filled with family men and women.
Me? I’ve had a revolving door of dates. It’s just the way I like things—casual, no-strings.
But it’s time to toss out the little black book and get serious.
I need a woman who’s feisty, someone who can handle me.
Someone strong and funny and intelligent.
Someone like that hot little brunette I see in the elevator who sets my libido on fire.
It’s lust at first sight.
Too bad she can’t stand me.

Olivia
Men—the bane of my existence!
Between my nuisance ex and people who think a woman doesn’t belong on a construction site…well, they can all kiss my curvy ass.
As a home renovation expert, I know my way around power tools.
I’m taking things to the next level, renovating and flipping a condo in a high-end building.
I’m out of my element here. I can tell by the way the unit owners look down their noses at my paint-stained clothing and work boots.
Especially the snob in the suit I meet in the elevator.
He thinks he’s better than me. I certainly don’t need a snooty jerk like him…
Until he makes me an offer I can’t refuse.

Brazen Player is a fake relationship romance inspired by Stuck-Up Suit.

Release Date: September 14, 2021


BLURB

Bentley Harris
He’s a perplexing mess.
Serving me happiness and hurting my heart all at once.
After two years of waiting, I’m finally giving up on the secret love I hold.
This is until he shows me a tiny fragment that makes me believe he cares.
But when he leaves, my self worth might be damaged beyond repair.
When he comes back with an interesting proposition, I accept knowing I’ll never care about him again.
Fitting, and exactly what he deserves.


Nora Davis
A sweet steady soul.
After the last girl I loved broke my heart and threw it away,
I didn’t think loving again was in the cards for me until Nora.
But there’s a problem.
I’m rotten.
I’ve wasted myself on other people to numb out the hole in my chest.
Nora deserves so much more than my broken fragments.
But I can’t let go, even after the mess I’ve made.
Now I’m rushing to her, making a crazy offer––one that gives my love away without knowing if I’ll get anything in return.
Exactly what I deserve if you ask me.

EXCERPT

“Nora.”
She flinches, and sharp pains prickle up my skin.
My shoulders drop, and I try again. “Nora.”
No flinch this time.
“Please. Please look at me.”
She shakes her head and flicks her gaze to the wall. “I can’t.”
“Why?” I close more of our gap, my heart tromboning between my stomach and throat. “Because you hate me, or because it’s too painful?”
She scoffs. “What difference does it make?”
“All the difference.” I shrug and pocket my hands. “One means everything we had between us is dead––the other is…” I sigh. “Hope. Hope that maybe we can start again.”
She hugs herself tightly, sealing herself away.
“Pain can heal, Nora. Fractures can be mended. But hate?” I shake my head, my heart weighted in my chest. “Hate only turns into bitterness. So…,” my throat goes dry, “Do you hate me?”






AUTHOR BIO
