Faire semblant… c’est pas si facile ! Charlotte et Thomas se détestent ! Ça, c'est un fait ! Après une nuit ensemble quand ils étaient adolescents, lui est parti vivre son rêve de cinéma, la laissant seule et furieuse. Mais lorsque des années plus tard, lors d'une interview, il s'invente une fausse petite amie, un seul nom lui vient à l'esprit : Charlotte ! De son côté, Charlotte est une mère célibataire qui vient de perdre son boulot et son appartement, et elle est aux abois. Quand Thomas lui propose un contrat bien payé pour jouer sa petite amie à Los Angeles… elle accepte. Comment jouer le couple parfait quand elle rêve de l’étrangler… autant que de lui sauter dessus ?! *** – T'es pas sérieux ? Je suis morte de rire, littéralement. C'est impossible qu'il croie une seule seconde à sa demande complètement stupide. Et maintenant il me fait ses yeux de chien battu ! Mais achevez-moi ! – Réfléchis-y, au moins. – Réfléchir à quoi ? Sérieusement, Thomas. Réfléchir au fait que tu me proposes de jouer à la call-girl de bas étage ? Ou que tu me le demandes juste pour te faire mousser devant ton ex ? – Je te promets un contrat en bonne et due forme, avec des clauses dans tous les sens. Un truc hyper pro. Je ne vois pas ce que tu as à y perdre, au contraire tu as tout à gagner. Parlons-en tiens, c'est une bonne idée. Dix mille euros pour jouer sa fausse petite amie durant quinze jours. Deux jours de préparation, et le reste à me balader à son bras pour être crédible aux yeux de celle qu'il appelle Médusa. Je dois avouer que l'idée est plutôt tentante, ça me permettrait de résoudre mes loyers impayés, mais aussi de vivre décemment en attendant que Louis m'engage. Mais non, psychologiquement je ne peux pas. Ce serait admettre que je ne peux pas m'en sortir seule. Je me lève, un poing sur la hanche, le toisant de toute ma hauteur. Lui est allongé, les bras croisés sous sa tête, sa serviette de bain toujours enroulée bas sur ses hanches. Très bas. Trop bas. Tellement bas que j'ai du mal à regarder autre chose que l'ouverture de cette maudite serviette ! Tout à coup, Thomas se redresse sur ses coudes, agrandissant encore plus l'espace entre les deux pans du bout de tissu. Un sourire malicieux aux coins des lèvres, l'acteur joue avec mes nerfs. Lentement, il écarte les jambes, laissant libre cours à mon imagination quant à ce qui se trouve sous sa serviette. – Allez, Charlotte, accepte. Ton cœur a envie d'accepter, mais tu penses trop. *** Fake Boyfriend, True Lover, d'Aurore Nox, histoire intégrale.

WANTED: One (fake) boyfriend Practically perfect in every way Luc O'Donnell is tangentially—and reluctantly—famous. His rock star parents split when he was young, and the father he's never met spent the next twenty years cruising in and out of rehab. Now that his dad's making a comeback, Luc's back in the public eye, and one compromising photo is enough to ruin everything. To clean up his image, Luc has to find a nice, normal relationship...and Oliver Blackwood is as nice and normal as they come. He's a barrister, an ethical vegetarian, and he's never inspired a moment of scandal in his life. In other words: perfect boyfriend material. Unfortunately, apart from being gay, single, and really, really in need of a date for a big event, Luc and Oliver have nothing in common. So they strike a deal to be publicity-friendly (fake) boyfriends until the dust has settled. Then they can go their separate ways and pretend it never happened. But the thing about fake-dating is that it can feel a lot like real-dating. And that's when you get used to someone. Start falling for them. Don't ever want to let them go. Discover the LGBT romance about exact opposites falling in perfectly imperfect love that New York Times and USA Today bestselling author CHRISTINA LAUREN calls "hilarious, witty, tender, and stunning."

She hired him from Rent for Your ’Rents, a company specializing in providing fake boyfriends trained to impress even the most traditional Asian parents.

Luckily, learning protocols like “Type C parents prefer quiet, kind, zero-PDA gestures” comes naturally to him. When Chloe rents Drew, the mission is simple: convince her parents fake Drew is worthy of their approval so they’ll stop pressuring her to accept a proposal from Hongbo, the wealthiest (and slimiest) young bachelor in their tight-knit Asian American community. But when Chloe starts to fall for the real Drew—who, unlike his fake persona, is definitely not ’rent-worthy—her carefully curated life begins to unravel. Can she figure out what she wants before she loses everything?

A fun, flirty teen debut from Wattpad phenom Alex Light about a fake relationship and real love. It’s been years since seventeen-year-old Becca Hart believed in true love. But when her former best friend teases her for not having had a boyfriend, Becca impulsively pretends she’s been secretly seeing someone. Brett Wells has it all. As captain of the football team and one of the most popular guys in his school, he should have no problem finding someone to date, but he’s always been more focused on his future than who to bring to prom. When he overhears Becca’s lie, Brett decides to step in and be the mystery guy. It’s the perfect solution: he gets people off his back for not having a meaningful relationship and she can keep up the ruse that she’s got a boyfriend. Acting like the perfect couple isn’t easy, though, especially when you barely know the other person. But with Becca still picking up the pieces from when her world was blown apart years ago and Brett just barely holding his together now, they begin to realize they have more in common than they ever could have imagined. When the line between what is pretend and what is real begins to blur, they're forced to answer the question: Is this fake romance the realest thing in either of their lives?
