Book Review: The Billionaire's Counterfeit Girlfriend (The Pryce Family Book 1) by Nadia Lee

The Pryce Family Book 1
Title: The Billionaire's Counterfeit Girlfriend
Author: Nadia Lee
Series: Pryce Family #1
Pages: 302
My Rating: ❤❤❤

Curvaceous beauty Hilary Rosenberg doesn't believe in love. She only goes out with nice guys who won't expect passionate romance--until a notorious womanizer demands she repay a favor with four weeks of counterfeit dates.

Billionaire playboy Mark Pryce doesn't do relationships. In fact, he's never been with the same woman for more than three months. But when his matchmaking mother tries to sabotage his bachelorhood, he needs a stand-in girlfriend. Luckily, Hilary owes him big time. But as they start to spend more time together, he finds himself wanting to break his first rule: never get too close...

The Billionaire's Counterfeit Girlfriend was a cute fluffy read. At times, it did delve into some hard topics, but didn't really flesh them out. One of my favorite parts was how Hilary was no stick. She seemed to be secure with her body type though, until people would make fun of her and talk bad about her. I will never understand what possesses people to do that. Some individuals are just mean.

Both Hilary and Mark have a lot of baggage, and I mean a LOT of baggage. They are so hung up on their past for the majority of the story. For them, the past pretty much dictates their future, and is the reason behind many of their decisions. For Mark, his parents' relationship is not loving. Instead, his mom is supposedly trapped in this marriage, while his dad cheats on her with just about every woman he happens across. As for Hilary, I won't get into too many details, but her family is Jerry Springer worthy. Let's just say her aunt and her mom have similar taste...

I think the author meant for Hilary to be in her late 30s, but the Hilary that I came to know in the book was not in her late 30s. Instead, I pictured Hilary to be in her late 20s, maybe early 30s. That just made way more sense to me. I know it's probably not what the author intended, but I'm just stubborn that way.

"Surviving is what any animal would do. It's making something of yourself that earns the badge. Nobody can choose how they were born and raised, but everyone can choose how they're going to live."

"Nothing's ever simple. I just don't want you to ignore possibilities out of fear. Sometimes you have to take a leap of faith, believing that somebody's going to catch you."
