A fashionista enlists a foul-mouthed, Tiki-bar-owner to be her fake fiancé to make her ex-boyfriend jealous … and their chemistry is on fire!

Fake Dating | Dirty Talking Hero | One Night Stand



When two single people meet at a wedding, they should hook up, right? Even if those people happen to be sweet, people-pleaser me and the foul-mouthed, tiki bar owner Mason Haas? Flings are forgettable. That is, until Mason turns out to be the best one-night-stand of my life.

And now, a second wedding is on the horizon, and guess who’ll be there? My ex, who was the trifecta: smart, rich, and unspeakably good-looking. But he dumped me, and I’m not about to show up to another wedding single and pathetic.

But wait: if Mason and I were so compatible in the bedroom, we’re bound to make fake-dating look like paradise. Nothing says I’m happy without you like a fake boyfriend on my arm. Or even better, a fake fiancé.

However, when the bride, wedding party, and my ex all show up a week early and stay at my Hawaiian beach house, paradise suddenly gets overcrowded. A fake relationship is easy for a day, but how will we keep it up for a whole week in Hawaii? Especially when Mason starts to play fiancé a little too well. In fact, I’m not sure if we’re still faking at all.
