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.
Faking It with 41 is the next installment in the hockey hotties series by Piper Rayne and it does not disappoint!!
Ford Jacobs is a new father, who has just been left to raise his daughter on his own, while trying to defend his hockey career against his father’s wishes for him to take over the family business…a multi-million dollar enterprise. Before his daughter, he was hockey’s it man. The one the guys wanted to be and the girls wanted to be with. Bars and parties and fights and women were all just part of the gig.
Lena Boyd has spent her life wondering where the next meal will come from, if she’ll have enough to cover rent and bills, and when the next eviction notice will come. Money is something that she has always been insecure about. Part of being the family PR prep means putting out the little fires that Ford starts. Spinning the latest story to look better for the family.
When Mr. Jacobs presents an offer that could solve everyone’s problems – will Lena and Ford go for it? Can something that starts as a business transaction end in something more romantic?
I LOVED this book. Ford is amazing! He wants to do it all – be the hands on dad that he never had while staying true to who he is. I loved watching these two who were once at odds learn more about each other and open up.
