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.


Piper and Rayne's Hockey Hotties series has been off to a great start, and I have to say that FAKING IT WITH #41 is my favourite so far! I absolutely loved it! I'm a sucker for the single dad trope, love a reformed ladies man, and also love sport romances, and the fake dating and the hate-to-love tropes, so this checked so many of my boxes! 
Along with being packed full of awesome tropes, I loved that we finally got to see Ford's story here! We've gotten to know him over the past two books in the series, and there's been so much build up for his story, so I wasn't sure what to expect really, but once I started, I was hooked! I loved that there were so many additional facets to his character and he and Lena were such a wonderful pair! Their banter, teasing, and back-and-forth both before and after their relationship began was so entertaining, and I loved every interaction that they had! I also loved Ford's humour, and I loved seeing both Ford and Lena open up to one another! Last, but certainly not least, I also absolutely adored all of the moments with Ford's daughter!!! She was adorable and I'm really looking forward to more moments where their little family pops up in future books later on! 
Overall, I thought that FAKING IT WITH #41 was fantastic! The story was entertaining, funny, sweet, steamy, and I didn't want to put it down! I loved the mix of tropes, seeing all the previous couples, and also the hints for future books...because in case you haven't heard, Piper and Rayne are expanding this series and we're now going to get even more Hockey Hotties books! I'm super excited to see this series continue, and I'd recommend this book and the other books in the series to contemporary romance fans who like steamy, sweet romances with amazing banter, and fantastic friend groups!
