Release Blitz: Faking it With #41 by Piper Rayne

Release Date: September 21



Being the heir to Jacobs Enterprises, I’ve been around fake people my entire life. I promised myself a long time ago that I wouldn’t change for anyone. Which is the only reason I’m a professional hockey player who lives on the beach and does as he pleases without answering to anyone—except my father.


And now, my daughter.


Being a single dad wasn’t in the plan but after a one-night stand who took off after the baby was born, this is my reality.


My dad’s been harping on me to quit hockey and join the company for years and now that I’m a father, he’s only intensified his efforts. Until he makes me a deal I can’t refuse.


Insert Lena Boyd, the Jacobs’ family PR rep. She’s beautiful and intelligent and not at all the woman for me—ask anyone. 


My dad needs us to act happily engaged and sell the idea that we’re in love. If we’re successful I won’t have to join the family legacy—ever. Of course, I agree.


That’s when things get complicated. I thought I had her all figured out until I found out there was more underneath her judgmental sneers and eye rolls. It feels like everything is coming together for the future I really want—with Lena—until my past ruins everything.

Review by Jen Skewes

If there is one thing I love it is a sexy hockey players.  That is why I love this series so much.  I could not wait for Ford’s story.  Not only is he a sexy hockey player but also a single dad which gets me every single time.  


Ford Jacobs is a trust fund kid was groomed to take over the family business one day.  But he had other plans.  He never wanted to be a part of the business.  His passion is hockey and with hard work and dedication he made it to the NHL.   But no matter how much he loves playing hockey or how good he is, his father still gives him crap about his career choice.  He does not have the best relationship with his father because of this.  After years of dealing with his father’s disappointment, there is finally a way to get him off his back and for him to accept that he will never work for the business.  While it sounds great, there is a huge catch.  Ford and Lena Boyd, his family’s PR rep, must pretend to be engaged, then get married and once the sale of the family business goes through they can proceed with a divorce.  This sounds absolutely ridiculous to the both of them.  But at the same time very tempting for both.


Lena has been working for the Jacobs family for a few years.  She knows the type of guy that Ford it.  Afterall it has been her who has cleaned up his messes.  He likes to party,  have a good time as well as one-night stands.  Until he finds out that he is going to be a father and that completely changes everything,.  Lena is not sure going through with this plan will work, but accepting this deal could change so much for her.  I think the biggest fear is falling for Ford and getting hurt when this is all over.  Maybe Ford has changed, maybe he is no longer the man that she knew him to be.  Guess she will soon find out!!


I loved this book and I think for me Ford is my knew favorite player for the Florida Fury.  This is a guy that lived the life.  He had his share of women, had fun doing it.  But now that he is a father, he truly has changed.  His daughter is his life.  And watching this man become mush when it comes to his little girl, watching him change his ways and become an amazing Dad will just melt your heart and maybe turn you on at the same time.  


Lena was the perfect match for Ford/. She comes across as this shy woman who dresses more like a woman who is much older than she is.  But deep down, while she does have some insecurity issues, she is strong and independent and when it comes to those intimate moments with Ford, she is anything but shy.  She has another side to her that I loved!!!  She is completely smitten with his daughter and cannot help but fall for Ford. 


I loved the banter between the two of them.  There is something so sexy and swoony worthy about a guy manning up and becoming this amazing single dad.  He was sweet and sexy all in one.   Lena was the one woman who could make him want more.  Their relationship was both physically and emotionally perfect.  Both having their own insecurity issues but learning how to communicate and work through them.  I astutely loved this book and Ford and Lena.  And as always it is great to see the rest of the Fury crew that we love.  Cannot wait for the next one.
