Fake Date

Fake Date by Monica Murphy Book Summary

Sarah Harrison is used to strange customers.

Working at a lingerie store, she helps bored housewives, spicy sorority girls, repentant husbands -- and everyone in between. Yet no one sparks her interest more than Jared Gaines, the ultra-rich, ultra-sexy businessman who frequents her shop, buying delicate little "gifts" for the women in his life.

But one day, Jared sends her a gift from Bliss. Then another--and another. It doesn't matter how thoughtful he is, or how well-chosen the gifts are, or how sexy he is. It's inappropriate, and Sarah is determined to put a stop to it. Or at the very least, she wants to know why.

It's the oldest one in the book, of course. He needs a fake girlfriend for the weekend while attending his brother's engagement party. It's a terrible idea. She's certain it could even get her fired. So she absolutely takes him up on it.

Next thing Sarah knows, she's in San Francisco, pretending to be in love with Jared. Not that it's a hardship.

Except that the real feelings in their pretend relationship soon have her in over her head. Is he just faking it, or do they have their own shot at bliss?

What ensues is intense chemistry, mixed feelings, self-doubt and wonderful romantic tale. Enjoy!

- The Billionaire and the lingerie sales lady3 star

Sarah Harrison lost her parents in her first year of college. That meant she had to quit to take care of her younger brother and sister and become a parent to them. It certainly hasn’t been an easy road for her, but one that was necessary. Trying to make a living to support them without a degree, she gets a job at a lingerie shop called Bliss. Now years later, she is one of their most trusted employees. Most of her customers are women, with a few men. One in particular, Jared Gaines, is handsome and infuriating! For the past six months he’s been making appointments with her, assuming he’s buying for all his mistresses or one night stands. Sarah feels like he can’t stand her since he’s always so rude to her. One day when she returns home, Sarah finds a package from her store and it was sent by Jared. The actual lingerie she sold him that same day. She’s never been so confused in her life, what does this mean. However, that becomes the first of many gifts from Jared. Feeling the need to confront him at his office and return his gifts, Sarah decides to go before her shift at Bliss. What she didn’t expect was his proposition. Jared needs her to be his fake date at his brother’s engagement party. After much convincing, Sarah agrees. Now she has to pretend to be his actual girlfriend. Pretending never felt so good. Jared has had it bad for Sarah for months. Asking her to be his pretend girlfriend is a brilliant idea, if he could only convince her to make it more permanent. This is actually a 3 and a half star rating. I’ve always enjoyed Ms Murphy’s books. However, this one just wasn’t one of my favorites. The dialogue between the two, was off, for me. I received a copy of this arc in exchange for an honest review

- Made me smile a lot!!5 star

Holy chemistry! Jared and Sarah are adorable! The banter these two have is so funny. It is their way of flirting, I suppose. This is the second book in the dating series and it is also a hit, just as Save The Date Is. once again we have a brooding man who won’t let you inside his head and a woman who on the outside looks all put together and strong; when she really is doing everything in her power to hold everything together. Jared and Sarah start out as acquaintances. Meeting one another at Sarah’s place of work, Bliss. Jared seems to come in more and more often. And why? You think you know, but not until later in the book you find out. Jared is somewhat estranged from his family and is asked to attend a party. He really doesn’t want to go. But after some persuasion, Sarah decides to be his fake date to the party. But once away together, Jared and Sarah really find out that they are very compatible with one another. This book is very fun to read and had me smiling through most of it!

- Steamy fun to finding Bliss5 star

I was surprised by this story. On the surface it's a billionaire romance but as I got to peel back the layers, I met two amazing characters that deserved to find love yet wouldn't allow themselves. Sarah suffered an incredible tragedy but she stepped up to raise her teenage sister with the help of her younger brother. They had to forge a new family without their parents. She works at Bliss selling lingerie and has a most interesting client, Mr. Jared Gaines, who comes in to buy lingerie for his many mistresses. The one problem she finds him very attractive and struggles to maintain her professionalism then one visit, Jared, gets more personal. Jared is an up-tight, jerk, at least that is what he portrays. He had his heart broken several years ago shortly after his mom died so he decided to ban all emotions and not let anyone in. When he meets Sarah, she causes a shift inside him and he finds himself visiting Bliss more frequently. When his brother wants him to attend his engagement party, he takes advantage of this opportunity and convinces Sarah to be his fake date. Now these two had been doing the ultimate tap dance around their feelings, will a weekend together as a fake date force them to realize something real is possible? I enjoyed their journey. Jared gave Sarah a stability she didn't know she needed and Sarah pushed Jared to deal with his grief. I voluntarily read an ARC of this book and this is my honest review.

- Charming & Steamy!5 star

I loved this charming, sexy and incredibly entertaining story. I had a blast reading it and I fell completely in love with Sarah and Jared. It was such a fun read and it left me with a huge smile on my face. I loved their interactions. Such great Hate-Flirt. Such sizzling chemistry. Sarah walks a fine line when she has to deal with Jared at her job, she doesn’t take any of his rude, demanding behavior without giving it right back to him. But what she doesn’t know is that she is the reason he comes into Bliss. So when he starts sending her some gifts, and then asks her on a fake date she is totally thrown for a loop. Will their chemistry lead to more? You need to read this to enjoy all the juicy details. Fake date is engaging, steamy, emotional and romantic, and it delivers a sublime happy-ever-after with all the feels.

3.5 stars--FAKE DATE is the second instalment in Monica Murphy’s contemporary, adult DATING romance series. This is thirty four year old, acquisitions billionaire Jared Gaines, and twenty four year old, lingerie sales clerk Sarah Harrison’s story line. FAKE DATE can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty. Any important information from the previous story line is revealed where necessary. Told from dual first person perspectives (Jared and Sarah) FAKE DATE focuses on the building relationship between thirty four year old, acquisitions billionaire Jared Gaines, and twenty four year old, lingerie sales clerk Sarah Harrison. For close to six months Sarah Harrison has been the go-to personal shopper for businessman Jared Gaines, a man whose taste in lingerie is exquisite and expensive. Believing Jared is nothing more than a manwh*re with numerous mistresses Sarah remains overly professional in the face of her unwanted attraction to a man she doesn’t like. When gifts of lingerie, expensive shoes and flowers arrive at Sarah’s door, our heroine battles between head and heart believing Jared is treating her no better than the women he leaves behind but Jared need a plus-one for his brother’s engagement party, and Sarah is the perfect woman for the job. What ensues is the fake girlfriend but building romance and relationship between Sarah and Jared, and the potential fall –out when Jared’s secrets all but destroy Sarah’s faith in a possible happily ever after. Jared Gaines doesn’t do relationships; having been burned in the past, Jared refuses to fall in love, having hardened his heart to romance and love. Meeting Sarah Harrison sparks something deep within our story line hero, something Jared struggles to accept or acknowledge. Sarah Harrison has raised her younger brother and sister since the death of their parents four years earlier. Having spent no time on herself Sarah battles with Jared’s offer of a fake relationship knowing that her heart has already started to fall for the man who struggles with family and friends. Watching Jared falter with basic social skills, Sarah quickly discovers that Jared has closed himself off from said family and friends. Jared’s personality and actions will be difficult to accept for many romance readers. Oft-times immature and cold, Jared struggles with ordinary and everyday social encounters including his treatment of our story line heroine. Demanding and petulant, almost child-like in nature, Jared steps over the line on one too many occasions, and Sarah must remind him about his poor behaviour, and treatment of other people, and herself. The relationship between Jared and Sarah begins as a business arrangement wherein Sarah becomes Jared’s personal shopper at Bliss Lingerie. Jared’s attraction to Sarah finds our hero ‘using’ Sarah to ‘shop’ for his many ‘women’, only for Sarah to discover that she has been the only woman for several months. The $ex scenes are passionate and intimate but mostly implied, without the use of over the top, sexually graphic language and text. There is a large ensemble cast of colorful secondary and supporting characters including Sarah’s sister Andie, and their brother Brent; and Sarah’s co-worker Bethany, and boss Marlo; Jared’s brother Kevin and his fiancée Rochelle, their sister Candice, their father Marcus Gaines, and his wife Mitzi. We are reintroduced to Sarah’s friends: Caroline Abbott ( Save the Date #1), Stella, and Kelsey. FAKE DATE is a story of family, grief, acceptance and love. The premise is entertaining; the romance is seductive; the characters are energetic but Jared’s actions and behavior are questionable and problematic.
