R E V I E W ➠ Fake by Kylie Scott
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?

Not my first read by the author and I knew from the blurb then the cover that I will enjoy this. And boy did I enjoy the heck out of this, from page one. Usually I am not a CELEB HERO or heroine type of fan but this one was beyond perfection in that trope, hence why it made it on the TOP 2021 MUST READ list of mine! The only and I mean only hang-up which is personal for me is, that there is really no Epilogue. (angry face at that)
Hero is Patrick who is a well known actor and celebrity. He recently got into a little bit of a pickle regarding another celebrity (female) and the agents are out to repair his image. In comes the sweet, down to earth, beautiful waitress. Norah has noticed the handsome actor, but always gave him his privacy after all she could only imagine he wants to for once just be in piece and eat at a restaurant. But when he comes up with a offer she really CAN’T refuse, she doesn’t give it another thought because Norah is selfless and this is a huge quality I loved about her in the book. Both the hero and heroine really you fall in love with them even if at one point that involved a late night and a stupid HERO i wanted to cut him a little, I moved on from that fast Paddy! Yes that’s what they called him. That said, Norah uproots her life for the next 6 month and honestly the journey is hard yes, adjusting, accommodating and well trying to have a conversation with the handsome actor, turns out to be a lot harder than Norah imagined. She is very open and upfront, another quality to love about her and well Paddy he is very scowl-y and broody…in a sexy way yes but still. Their journey may seem easily mapped out but it’s nothing of that. I enjoyed every page, getting more of their lives and how they came together. I ended up loving every page and yarned for more. LOVE KYLIE and her unique way of writing style where she sucks you in and then you are just left with a #bookhangover and needing more!
