Things couldn’t get worse for Harper Presley. Her music career is nonexistent, she’s got pennies in the bank, and her grandmother is on the cusp of losing her house.
What’s a gal to do? Go to Vegas and seek a last chance opportunity.
What she didn’t expect was to wake up in her birthday suit next to pop star Landon Paige with a massive diamond on her ring finger.
It was supposed to be one night of wild recklessness.
But what happened in Vegas didn’t stay there. Now they have to fake it until they bake it.
That’s right, bake it.
They’ve been roped into competing in a reality baking contest for couples at the exact moment Landon takes custody of his spitfire of a niece.
The man requires a real nanny and a fake wife, and she needs the contest’s prize money to keep her grandmother’s house from getting repossessed.
It’s a business arrangement. She can’t give in to a smooth-voiced crooner strumming a guitar.
She’s not about to let another musician break her heart.
Still, when the spotlight fades and Landon drinks her in with his soulful brown eyes, she gets a glimpse of the man who might be more than a self-centered celebrity.
He might just be the heartthrob to make her heart sing again.

Not my first read by the author and I have read the other books in the series. I will have to say that this one is my least favorite. The first 2 books to me were lengths wise appropriate and I really really enjoyed, then the books got bigger and this one took me a very long time to finish. Frankly I had to skip a few pages here and there ‘a lot unfortunately’ to try to get through this. There is a lot of explanation and thoughts being shown which is great but some of the scenes I think for me I could have lived without. I am not saying any of this to be mean or hurtful but more of my feelings towards it. It truly was hard to finish took me a long time and I’m a fast reader. The heroine is the one I could NOT connect with, I tried!
Hero is a musician who was dealt a hard hand early in life, made it through only to lose it all. All but Aria. The heroine really is on her last leg, she took responsibilities of her grandma but trying to keep both of the afloat was another hurdle to try to get through. This is not one where the Nanny Matchmaker makes a match, the H&H beat her to it. One wild night in Vegas and what’s happens in Vegas DOES NOT stay in Vegas for these two. But they have a plan, one where no one would get hurt. Or so they think.
There is a lot in this book. Lot’s of tropes and lot’s of scenes. I really enjoyed the hero, I think he was trying his hardest but the heroine was like a whip-lash for me. In the end I really wish it would have been slightly smaller and I would have enjoyed it a lot more.
