"Fake it till you make it."

A notion I once considered utterly ridiculous. Until one crazy night with a mysterious man resulted in a social media frenzy that had the entire entertainment industry talking.

Seems a fake marriage was just what my career needed to make Hollywood come knocking.

Convincing him to continue the charade was almost too easy. The chemistry between us made it impossible to keep my hands to myself. But it was all just pretend, right? Love was never in the script.

That is, until he re-wrote it.

13 Reasons You Should Stay:

1. I'm crazy about you
2. I make you laugh
3. You totally dig me

5 completely wooed stars for 13!

Aspiring actress Sophie Banks thought that being on reality tv show Almost Famous would boost her career, but it seems to have doomed it. She's struggled in NYC long enough, and she's got a decision to make: keep being rejected or give up. She heads home for a visit, and she doesn't expect to meet a sexy country boy with a southern accent and ladykiller dimples. Drunk and feeling sorry for herself, Sophie asks him to pretend to marry her to make her ex jealous, and, smitten, Jared "Hawk" Hawkins agrees. She never expected to see him again after their night together, but now she knows Jared is actually Hawk, the guitarist for Chaos Rising, in which, coincidentally, her friend Tori's boyfriend plays. Even though neither she nor Hawk are looking for anything long-term, the two fall hard and fast for each other. But their relationship has an expiration date, and there's no way one can give up their dream for the other. There's just no way they can have it all…right?

I absolutely loved 13! How sexy, sweet and aww-inducing was Hawk? I swear, he's one of the most swoon-worthy MC's I've ever read about! I went back and forth on Sophie…on one hand she was pretty shallow, but on the other hand I appreciated her drive to become a successful actress and the steps she needed to take to make her dream come true. In the end though, the couple just overall blew my mind! These two were utterly fabulous together, and their insane chemistry was off the charts! 13 was a book about making the tough decisions, consequences for those decisions and finding the courage to go after what you want, and if that desire is to have it all, you should go for that too.

Bottom Line: OM/OW situations, no sharing; mixed condom use; no BDSM/kink; no sexual assault; no violence/murder.
