Book Review: The Billionaire's Charade by Eve Gaddy





Book Description
Summer St. Croix hates weddings. But when she meets hot-as-sinLuke Vanetti at her oldest friend’s ceremony, he promises to give her a reason to like them.
It’s all sexy fun and games until Summer realizes that Luke is none other than her new boss. Summer refuses to continue to have a fling with her superior, even though the passion between them still runs wildfire hot. But the billionaire private investigator doesn’t see the problem, especially since he knows that one night with Summer won’t be enough.
When Luke’s cousin sends an SOS asking for help in stopping a ring of jewel thieves from robbing his luxury hotel on the Amalfi Coast, Luke agrees. And Summer’s first assignment will be posing as his very sexy, rich, and bejeweled fiancée at the Hotel dei Fiori Isola del Sole.
Playing the happy couple is hard enough during the day, but the nights… will those romantic Amalfi nights turn the charade into more than just a job for both Summer and Luke… for good?

**I received an ARC from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.**

The Billionaire's Charade book 5 in the Amalfi Night Billionaire series.  This book didn't quite click with me.  Maybe because I hadn't read any of the other books (even though they are all stand alone books) or because the relationship between Summer and Luke felt a little rushed to me (the whole book is only about 100 pages).

Summer and Luke meet at a wedding of some mutual friends.  That night they have a "one-night stand" (Luke wants to see her again, Summer isn't so sure).  That next week, Summer walks into her new P.I. job and discovers that Luke is her new boss.  They are immediately pushed together to pose as soon-to-be husband and wife to help solve a string of jewelry robberies at high-end hotels.

By the end of the assignment, Luke wants more than just a fling with Summer (all because she hasn't BORED him yet... after like a week).  That is Luke's standard... no boredom in a week... YAY for him. =/
