One little white lie leads to more than she planned…

Straight-laced lawyer Kate Matthews always plays by the rules. But when her ex gets engaged and a big promotion is on the line at work, she blurts out that she has a new boyfriend. And now that she’s proved she “has a life” outside of work, everything is perfect. Except for one teeny little detail—there is no boyfriend. And now Kate’s liable for her little white lie…

Dominic Sorensen is hot, charming, and very definitely not Kate’s type. But not only does Dominic want to help Kate renovate her home, he’s also willing to play “boyfriend.” All he wants in return is a little pro bono work for his sister. Now instead of Mr. Right, Kate has a delectable Mr. Fix-It-Right—and some unbelievable sexual chemistry. And if falling for Dominic is a breach of contract, Kate is guilty as charged…

Kassiah: Fake relationships to more stories are some of my favorites, and this one was so cute. The synopsis is pretty spot on–lawyer Kate makes up that she has a boyfriend so she won’t seem so pathetic to her ex, who is getting married. Contractor Dominic agrees to be the boyfriend in exchange for Kate representing his sister. You know what happens. Will their crazy hot chemistry be enough for a forever?

I haven’t read anything by Ashlee Mallory before, but this one was so sweet, I know I’ll be reading more. It was sweet and swoony and had characters that I really liked, including Dominic’s family. The pacing was a little slow for me, and of course this is a Bliss book, so I wanted more there.

If you’re looking for a sweet falling for the fake gf/bf, Her Backup Boyfriend is a good choice.
