    I hate stupid characters and even more, dummer plots. This one has both. Douche MC fell in love with a bitchy OW when he was in college who is the Mayor's daughter. They dated for 4 yrs and he was deeply in love with her and planning to marry her but he caught her cheating. For 3 years since, he has not gotten over her and we spend the entire story hearing about it over & over again. Yep. The-ENTIRE-Story.

For 3 years since, he has not gotten over her and we spend the entire story hearing about it over & over again. Yep. The-ENTIRE-Story. In the first half, he is obsessing about seeing the OW again after 3 years and how much she hurt him. He gets heroine to pretend to be his fake fiancee just so that he could prove to the OW that he is over her, but the first time he sees OW, he is kissing her back and humiliates heroine in front of everyone because they see him kissing OW and think he is cheating on heroine. This was AFTER he had kissed heroine and was attracted to her. Heroine leaves and he doesn't follow her. Later, he lies to her that OW kissed HIM and he pushed her off. Nope. It was written that he got caught in the moment and in the past and kissed OW BACK. He only pushed OW away when he realized heroine saw them and that OW set him up for her to find him kissing her. Second time happens when he & heroine are already in a relationship and supposedly in love. Again, OW causes trouble by announcing to everyone that she & Hero are back together and more in love then ever (or some such shit). While OW is saying all this, he is smiling and not denying it - while heroine is right there next to him getting humiliated YET AGAIN! She runs out and again, he doesn't follow. It takes members of his Family to point his faults and how she is the woman for him (like he needed a road map to make that decision. Lol). AND it only took an ILY from said douche for heroine to forget the humiliation and the fact she is not-even second best, but a roadmap to nowhere because his family deemed she is "it" for him. *sigh*. Who for Pete's sake finds any of this Romantic and/or entertaining?

    Filip and Juliette have an arrangement that will benefit both of them. It's a fake engagement with benefits which quickly changes. Their chemistry is off the charts but there's the issue of his ex to deal with. I was glued to the pages reading their story. The author brings a strong cast of characters, all who help to bring the story around. It's well written and moves fluidly with detailed and descriptive scenes. I can't wait for the next book! Loved and highly recommend this book/series. I volu Filip and Juliette have an arrangement that will benefit both of them. It's a fake engagement with benefits which quickly changes.

Juliette, Scott's assistant, is the perfect woman to fit the role of fake fiancée to be a buffer between him and his ex-slut fiancée, Jennifer. Filip and Juliette are amazing together and they have so much fun with each other. The chemistry between them is RED HOT in this page turner of a story that I couldn't put down. I loved when they went to visit Juliette's family and Filip bonded with her Dad over the barbeque as well as met her 'interesting' grandmother! Of course, not all things go smoothly especially with an egotistical harpy like his ex around. But, this is a book by a member of the Parker Family so we know that things will be sorted out, however, dire it may seem as there is always a HEA. This is such a fun book with plenty of red hot steamy scenes as well as gorgeous characters that make this story come 'alive'. I do wonder whether it will be Scott or Isaac's turn in the next book. I'm anxiously awaiting even now. I received a reader's copy of this book and voluntarily leave my honest opinion pf it here. Most definitely recommended. ENJOY!!!!

    These men of Manhattan are something else and I am enjoying each one of them. This is Filip and Juliette’s story.

Juliette is his cousins Scott’s assistant and has work in the same office with Filip for years and never really had much to do with him. When Scott announces that their real estate firm would be hosting events for the mayor’s reelection and that he needed Filip in charge of this well it doesn’t make Filip happy because the mayor’s daughter just happens to be his ex which means she will be at the events. He was furious and he just happen to take it out on Juliette. Well, she’s wasn’t going to stand there and just take it so she fires back at him. This made Filip feel bad but he also realized how beautiful she was. Still dreading seeing Jennifer he comes up with the bright idea to as Juliette be his fake fiancé because she is beautiful and he knows it will get under Jennifer’s skin. So Filip and Juliette make an agreement she helps make Jennifer jealous and he will help her with getting promoted to the job she has been wanting. This was a great story and well written I truly enjoyed each page of it. Loved both main characters and they packed plenty of steam. Well done Mr. Parker I received an arc copy of this book and I am voluntarily leaving my honest review.

    I’m really falling in love with the Manhattan Men. For a family with such a reputation as players, they largely seem to be hiding some pretty gooey marshmallow hearts. As the latest Manhattan we get to be ‘up close and personal’ with, Filip has just cemented my opinion. It may be years after the fact, but he’s still stinging from his ex’s betrayal. What could be a better way to protect his heart from the ex ripping it out again but a fake engagement to the one woman in the office that he’s made I’m really falling in love with the Manhattan Men.

What could be a better way to protect his heart from the ex ripping it out again but a fake engagement to the one woman in the office that he’s made mad enough to hate him? And enter one of my favorite plotlines. Squee! Juliette may hate him now for his bad behavior, but will she say the same once she gets to know him? I loved these two together. They have just enough of an enemies-to-lovers vibe that it makes for some fun snarky banter and lots of sizzling chemistry. Plus, I adored watching this pair as they were falling in love. I just wish they would have had some difficult conversations a little earlier. Knowing they were dealing with a manipulative narcissist, I’m shocked at how willing both of them were to believe the stories the ex kept spinning. At least, in proper fairy tale fashion, good triumphs over evil and true love saves the day. I can’t wait to see what’s in store for the next Manhattan Man to find his forever. I received a complimentary advanced copy of this book from the author.

    This was a great read. I love how the secret they had was not really a secret. Filip was not going to face his ex-girlfriend alone. He didn't want her anywhere near him. So his brother gave him a great idea about going with a girl that they could use to be his fake fiancé. But who could they ask? Juliette always thought Filip was good looking and a nice guy.

The whole company knew that their arrangement was fake, but it still hurt when Filip's old girlfriend kissed him at a fundraiser for her dad who was running for Mayor. But that is not the half of it...Juliette was starting to have feelings for Filip. But she didn't know that he was also starting to have feelings for her. Well, well, well...what are these two crazy kids going to do. You have to read this for sure, to find out what happens. Ciao

Jacob Parker has another homerun with this one and I am definitely looking forward to the next Manhattan Men Book!

    So romantic. Makes you believe in true love. Don’t let the right woman get away. Filip was devastated when he caught his girlfriend of four years having an affair with the next-door neighbor. It broke him. It broke his heart and he has not moved on. He is a shell of a person and doesn’t believe he’s capable of meeting someone who can be loyal to him. Because of Jennifer, he doesn’t trust his feelings or the intentions of the women he dates. Are they all just after his money like Jennifer was? He So romantic. Makes you believe in true love.

    Oh those Manhattan men, who doesn’t love them? This fake relationship turned real is so sweet. I like the way they are led into it. They aren’t complete strangers ahead of time so their quick build into a relationship is believable.

    This is part of the Manhattan Men Series and a great addition. Wow, what a great series from Jacob Parker that just gets better. Filip and Juliette started out as a fake relationship to make his ex jealous but their chemistry was explosive. What started out as a mutually beneficial relationship became real. The characters were fun, likable and well developed. The story line grabs your attention right at the beginning and keeps it until the end.

    I think out of the Manhattan brothers, Filip so far is my favorite. He asks his cousins/bosses assistant, Juliette, to be his fake fiance. But what happens when his ex finds out its fake? Can Filip convince Juliette that although very fast, he has fallen for her, can he convince her that his ex means nothing to him? The side characters are, as usual, awesome as well, especially his parents. They are very straight up with all their boys, and Filip is no exception.

    Filip and Juliet too sweet Ok so Filip's ex was seriously a psycho narcissist. I was getting a little aggravated with Filip when he did nothing to come to Juliet's defense. Twice she was humiliated and left an event, twice! I guess the witch really did a number on him. In the end karma was on Filip's and Juliet's side. I loved when the went to Houston to meet her parents. I didn't like the way Juliet always put herself down when it came to social status. She and Filip make the perfect couple.

    Someone has some growing up to do ;) Mr Parker wrote another great book in this very interesting series ! Another very well written text that made me smile and swoon and with great characters that had to go through lots of emotions to get to their HEA. I do recommend this book and this series :) I received a free copy of this book, from the author, and voluntarily chose to review it.

    What an entertaining interesting story! This opposite attracts is crazy fun to read. Filip and Juliette are poles apart, she is an outgoing, no nonsense , he is more reserved and a hopeful romantic. When he needs a fake fiancé, he turns to Juliette who is looking for a promotion that he can help with. Together they make the perfect fake couple, but how fake is it? This fun sexy story will give hours of entertainment. I volunteered to review this story.
