Single mom Jeanie Long was trying to save her butt at work by reporting her manager to the company owner. Instead, she finds herself greeted warmly by gorgeous company CEO Camden James...and introduced to his father as his fiancée. Now she's been hired—complete with a hefty pay raise—to be the fake fiancée of the infamous “Penthouse Prince.”
Camden doesn't believe in love. He believes in mutually beneficial business arrangements. With his real fiancée off cheating on him, Camden needs someone to help him prove to his father that he's definitely ready to marry. Yet Jeanie's combination of beauty and bluntness act like an aphrodisiac, and their “for the press” kisses look incredibly real. So real that Jeanie and Camden are either really convincing actors...or they've fallen for their own charade.

My Review:

Penthouse Prince was a delightful read, it was full of romance, and chemistry between the characters that it had me hooked from the very beginning. 

Jeanie Long has had rough life growing up, not only did her parents basically turned their backs on her, but she was also left to be a single mother. Now her work is all she has to take care of her daughter, Kaycee, but her manager is threatening her job after Jeanie caught him in a compromising situation with her co-worker. Not wanting to face her manager again after been treated unfairly, she decides to take action by going to the company owner, CEO Camden James, but she didn't realized that by going to see him her life was going to change forever. 

Camden James has been called many names, but most recently the press has given the billionaire playboy the nickname, “The Penthouse Prince,” and he has certainly done a lot to gain the name. He is ruthless at what he does, and he is constantly surrounded by beautiful women. But lately, all the press that he is getting is ruining his reputation with the company, and has caused disappointment in his father. With his said “fiancee” cheating on him, he has no choice but to find someone that is willing to be his fake fiancee to get his father off his back and his shares of the company. What was supposed to be fake, turned out to be so much more for Jeanie and Camden as their kisses started to feel all too real for the fake couple. 

There were a lot of things that I enjoyed about this book, not only were the main characters felt relatable, but the whole story line was full of surprises that made it that much more irresistible to read. The synopsis alone hooked me in! It is evident from the very beginning that Jeanie is the caretaker of her little family, she hides secrets from her past that have made her overprotective over her daughter (which is all explained in the book, it's part of the twist!). But after her father died, she is not quiet sure of herself, but after meeting Camden that quickly changes. He makes her feel secured, and the two have an instant chemistry that grows throughout the book. Now, Camden is a romantic yet he can be very stubborn at times. As the two start to spend more time together, they share their pasts, and what they want in life. Overall, the story was very well-written, there were a couple of times when I just couldn't stand Camden and his decisions, yet the ending tied everything very well. The epilogue was also a nice touch to the story. I would definitely recommend the book to anyone that wants a quick romantic story full of surprises. :)
