Hairstylist Sinclair Jeffries agrees to pose as her best friend, Jesse's, girlfriend at his parents 25th Anniversary weekend as a favor. Jesse is worried that his parents won't approve of his gay lifestyle and hopes that by seeing him with a woman they won't find out. During the weekend Sinclair meets Jesse's dysfunctional family. His mother is a bit of a prude, his father is an adulterer and his brother, Reed, is not only gorgeous but also very much engaged.
Sinclair can't help but fall a little for the sexy Reed.
Reed is having big time second thoughts about his engagement. He pretty much is at the point where he can't even remember why he want to settle down with the woman in the first place. Then there is Sinclair. The woman is driving him crazy, but he has a lot of obstacles to get through before he can even pursue her. He'll not only need to figure out things with his fiance, and find out what Sinclair is doing with his brother, but there is someone else out there hellbent on getting his hand on Sinclair as well.
This story is told in the first person in three different character's point of view. This writing style isn't one of favorites, but it is easy to keep tracks of the characters. I liked the story and it's execution, however, I think that suspenseful scenes was rushed through too much.
Sinclair Jeffries thought she knew what she was getting into when her zany, gay friend, Jesse Eddington, talked her into portraying his girlfriend during his parent's anniversary party on Huntington Beach. That is, until she met Reed, Jesse's sexy as hell older brother, and ends up getting much more than what she'd bargained for.
Reed Eddington assumed his future was settled until he met Sinclair, his brother's so-called "girlfriend", but the raw, sexual tension between them is hard to ignore. As he watches their ruse from the sidelines, he finds himself wanting to uncover more than just the amusing little facade.
Due to sexual content and heavy subject matter, this book is recommended for ages 18+
