Fake it until you make it. That was the mantra Cori Dash chanted as she chased a big city dream. The more you tell people you’re on top of the world, the more they believe it – just like they believed the embellished image she sold them with her knock off designer facade. It wasn’t lying if the truth stood somewhere in the middle – and she didn’t get caught.
Dominic Blackthorne owned half of that big city…and a reputation. Rather than dispel rumors or show the world the real Nick, he let his own fake image run free. Until Cori Dash – the only person who told him exactly how it was, even if it stung.
When Cori is faced with her ex-fiance, now engaged to her ex-best friend, it’s game on. In her boldest move yet, she concocts her biggest lie to date by introducing the first handsome stranger that walks by as her new fiancé. Happy to play the part, Nick is already planning the fake wedding of her dreams.
You know what they say about lying – the truth always comes out – and it hurts. Especially when Cori finds out she isn’t the biggest Liar in this game, and she’s been out played.

Cordelia “Cori Dash” Daschel needs help getting out of a jam. Dominic “Nick” Blackthorne is an interesting man – that’s all I’m saying because he’s an experience that you need to enjoy by yourself. There are a couple of secondary characters that I fell in love with. They have wit, a great personality, and they got me to chuckle.
Even though this story wasn’t told in the first person it felt like it was told mostly from Cori’s point of view. Loved the laughable moments the author has created – I’m just sorry that some of them were at Cori’s expense, not. Nick seems like a subtle steamroller. He keeps Cori off-kilter just enough that she doesn’t realize what’s going on until just about the last minute.
If you know what a romantic comedy is than you will find this at the top of that category. But it also has some serious moments. This story has a nice flow to it. It also seems so realistic and just like in real life there are some ups and downs. But it’s what comes at the end that will seal the deal – it’s totally Nick’s style. I look forward to reading more of this author’s Faux-Mance.
Stephanie St. Klaire is a Pacific Northwest native currently living in Portland, Oregon with her husband, five children, and two ferocious lap dogs that are used to the finer things in life like sleeping all day. When she isn’t writing, she can usually be found with a plate full of taco’s, a side of bean dip, and probably some gummy bears while being a little bit hippy and a lot bit busy mom’ing and wife’ing.
When she’s not tossing around gritty crime show inspired serial killers and diabolical bad guys, she likes to make people pee their pants a little with a good romcom. Sometimes, her worlds collide, and she writes really funny stuff right before she kills people off on the pages! She loves murder and mayhem as much as a good laugh and HEA! That’s why she’s a die-hard Hallmark junky but loves her gritty crime shows – balance!
Stephanie has always been a story teller, with the gift of “gab”, and a life-long goal to be a writer. Unfortunate circumstances with her health, finally afforded her the time to do so. Irony at its best, she began writing her first novel at an adverse time, to escape her circumstance and explore the stories in her imagination for relief. She is happy to share those stories with her readers, and bring a little fun, entertainment, and of course smexy characters to the pages.
