Single mom Jeanie Long was trying to save her butt at work by reporting her manager to the company owner. Instead, she finds herself greeted warmly by gorgeous company CEO Camden James...and introduced to his father as his fiancée. Now she's been hired—complete with a hefty pay raise—to be the fake fiancée of the infamous “Penthouse Prince.”
Camden doesn't believe in love. He believes in mutually beneficial business arrangements. With his real fiancée off cheating on him, Camden needs someone to help him prove to his father that he's definitely ready to marry. Yet Jeanie's combination of beauty and bluntness act like an aphrodisiac, and their “for the press” kisses look incredibly real. So real that Jeanie and Camden are either really convincing actors...or they've fallen for their own charade.
This book completely took me by surprise, and in all the right ways. I was hooked from the first freaking chapter for crying out loud! I pretty much ended up reading this one within a day because it was hard to tear me away from it. I was that attached to Camden and Jeanie and needed to know what was in store for them.
Camden kinda throws Jeanie off with his spontaneous proposal, but she finally gives in. The two of them embark on this little adventure together and pretend to be getting married. I loved seeing how sweet Camden is, especially when it comes to the serious things Jeanie is dealing with in her life. His constant care is endearing, and their fake relationship starts feeling more real with each passing day. I loved seeing Camden and Jeanie grow in their feelings for each other. And it never ceased to make me swoon and believe in their romance.
Penthouse Prince is a story that pulls you in from the start. I've always loved this trope and I don't think I'll ever tire of it, and this one has been one of the best I've read. Virginia Nelson definitely made a happy reader out of me with this sweet tale!
