Harley Taizer wasn’t used to dealing with her greedy parents. They’d never wanted her and had made it perfectly clear by giving her to her grandfather the day she'd been born. It’s funny how things change when money is involved. Discovering her trust fund, her parents show up demanding she give them the money. Afraid of just how far his son and daughter in-law will go, her grandfather brings in a security specialist to help.

Kasper Drake hasn’t met a trust fund baby he liked, though he is one himself. Upon meeting his uncle’s newest client he’s willing to throw all his preconceived notions out the window. He’s trying to get Harley to admit to their fierce attraction when her father shows up demanding to know Kasper's identity. She tells him that he’s her fiancée. Kasper latches onto her lie hoping to make her see how good it could be.

“None For You and All For Me,” or “Watch Your Back or I’ll Walk All Over It” was how Harley Taizer saw her mother and father.

It's funny how relatives come out of the woodwork when they get wind of someone inheriting a large amount of money. The heroine lived with her grandfather and had very little contact with her parents, until they found out she had a trust fund. Harley’s grandfather knew how her parents were and he wanted to protect her.

From chapter one Harley grabbed my heartstrings and held on to them throughout the story. After being raised and loved by her grandfather, she had very little love for her parents and for good reasons.

Kasper Drake is asked by his uncle to set up security for Harley’s trust fund and falls in lust (or is it love?) at first sight. He is determined to protect both her and her grandfather from her parents' greed by staging a fake engagement. I found myself sighing as I watched Kasper work to shield both Harley and her grandfather. I wished for a man just like him. All the characters come across as real life people and wormed their way into my heart.

It took me a few days to gather my thoughts and run through my feelings on this book once I was finished with it. Not because it was a bad story but because there was so much passion and emotion throughout that I did not know where to begin. There are some books that just hit so close to home and the feeling of the characters are so real that I had to take a step back and saver all the details and events in the plot that made the tale an outstanding story.

The Millionaire’s Fake Fiancée is one book I will be adding to my bookshelf to read again in the future. I am looking forward to reading more books by this author and cannot wait to tell my mother about this one.
