My Billionaire Fake Fiance
He looked up with a sneer that somehow made him even more handsome than his usual dumb-looking, charming Peter Pan look.
“Anyway, would you like me to take you home now?” I tried to keep the hope out of my voice.
He pulled the ring out of his pocket and looked at it wistfully. “No. I have to fix this somehow. I just have to think.” He hit himself on the side of the head a little too hard.
I winced. Ouch.
More head hitting—this time harder.
“Hey—hey, stop that,” I said. “You’ll hurt yourself.”
Devlin stopped like a child that had been reprimanded and stared at the ring again in a trance. Rich people problems. Maybe I should take him to his therapist.
“What, exactly, were you trying to get your fiancée to do?” I had to ask. “Because you obviously didn’t want her to be herself.”
Devlin threw his hands up. “She’s beautiful.”
I rolled my eyes.
“Balderdash! I thought she was fine being single. Women!”
I looked at him with no sympathy.
He let out a big sigh. “My father’s a traditionalist. I just thought it would be better this way. Make him happy. Win-win.”
I shook my head.
“In what logical world did you think that you were going to bring home an exotic dancer and get her to act like she was a perfect 50’s wife?”
He clenched his hands.
“Right, I was crazy.”
“Well, if you just needed a darn fake date, you would have been better off grabbing somebody off the street than trying to remake Sofia Denario!”
Your one stop spot for delicious food and books you’ll devour!
