The Pretend Girlfriend - A Billionaire Love Story

Lucy Lambert


The Pretend GirlfriendIf you'd have told me a week ago that I'd be a billionaire's property...

Confident. Brilliant. Rich. Devastatingly handsome. Aiden Manning seemed to have it all. As naive as I was, when he seemed interested in me, I fell head over heels immediately.

But Aiden Manning's life held a dark side, one that he needed to hide at any cost. That's where I would come in. My trusting nature had caused me to owe money to the wrong people, and Aiden was right there and ready to help, if only I'd help him out as well. Just one signature on a piece of paper, and suddenly I was bound to him. The ground rules I had laid out at the beginning quickly melted away, and I found myself being drawn deeper and deeper into Aiden's life.

However, someone couldn't handle that. An even more powerful figure in Aiden's life would stop at nothing to break the two of us apart. It soon became clear that I might have to sacrfice everything I had to keep the two of us together.

The real question was: How long could I pretend?

The Review

Review by Jodie W

Gwen has had the day from hell all she wants to do is take her soaking wet clothes off get on the sofa and close her eyes but Gwen has a letter with big ugly writing on it URGENT.

Aiden Manning hates these parties they really wasn't his scene; he was left sitting at the bar nursing his drink. Aiden was the youngest executive at his company, the youngest they had ever had. People assumed that they knew Aiden, the one man who kept himself to himself, however you can never truely know someone unless they themselves open up and want you to know them.

I enjoyed this book as it was an easy read however in my opinion some bits felt slow and drawn out. I found that during this my mind began to wonder and I found myself wanting to skim pages, to reach a more interesting part of the story.

I will compliment Lucy on getting her readers to know the characters inside out. Lucy enabled me too realise that although Aiden could come across quite grumpy and pushy, I found myself more feeling sorry for him even though he was hiding something. I found that Gwens character was a little bit too unsure of herself, especially when it came to making decisions but towards the end Gwen gets more confidence and is less indecisive.

The cover reached out and appealed to me however I found myself getting bored during certain aspects of the story, in my personal opinion this was a little to slow and didn't keep my captivated but Lucy has done a great job with her characters and I still recommend that people do give it a try. All in all I have given this book a three star rating as it was an ok read but it just lacked that wow factor!

Thank you Francessca for giving me the chance to review this book.
