Goodreads:  What’s wrong with a little bit of faking it?

After Josie got dumped by her ex through a note on the fridge, she hasn’t let herself get close to anyone. But when she meets Cameron at a Halloween party, who turns up in the same Ghostbusters costume as her, it’s virtually impossible to stay away.

Cameron, a curly haired video-games designer with dazzling blue eyes, the sexiest dimples and the same encyclopedic knowledge of movies as Josie, seems too good to be true.

And maybe he is… Because there’s one teeny tiny problem as Josie falls madly in love. Cameron has no idea that Josie lives at home with her ex-porn star parents and their dog Dave, or about the minor detail that she works for their sex toy empire. After her ex broke up with her because of the family business, Josie decides to tell a little white lie.

But it’s just a matter of time until the truth comes out. When it does, will Cameron end things, leaving Josie with only Dave the dog for company? And what if she’s not the only one who’s keeping secrets?

Kritters Thoughts:  Josie is the child of parents who own a sex toy company and her brother is a mid tier celebrity and at a Halloween party she meets a great guy, but can she be honest with him about her entire life?

My third Kristen Bailey book and not my favorite, but it didn't turn me off enough not to read more of her backlist and read her upcoming books.  Josie was a great character to follow through this story and when reading a romance, I am always glad to connect with a character and be able to root them on from beginning to the predictable end!  

While I read a lot of books set across the pond and tend to enjoy them, for some reason there were some moments in this one that maybe didn't completely translate for me - super shruggy shoulders!  

With a few eye rolling moments and some tender ones too, this was a good one, but I hope to read more from Kristen Bailey - maybe with a few less sexy toys and things!  

Rating: enjoyable, but didn't leave me wanting more
