🌟BLOG TOUR:🌟 The Billionaire's Sham Girlfriend by Leslie North {REVIEW}

The Billionaire's Sham Girlfriend by Leslie North

Release Date: November 8th 2018
Series: The Beaumont Brothers Series  #1
Genres: Romance, Contemporary

Gregor Beaumont is in a world of hurt that all the charm in his gorgeous, well-toned body can’t fix. His late grandfather, God rest his soul, wanted to make sure Gregor and his two playboy brothers settle down. He had the brilliant idea of buying up a huge share of the brothers’ engine company and using that as incentive for each brother to find Mrs. Right. Settle down or lose the company to a competitor. Well, that’s just not happening to Gregor, not when life’s so good at the moment. Gregor likes racing fast cars and seducing fast women, and not necessarily in that order. Settle down? Not a chance. Gregor has his own brilliant idea: find some wholesome and desperate girl to pretend to be his girlfriend. No harm. No foul. Unless things start getting a little bit too real.

Kara Alerby knows she’s a sucker for blues eyes and a great smile, so when Gregor comes into her theater wanting to hire her to act the part of his adoring girlfriend, she’s already got her defenses on high alert. But Kara’s a practical girl, and Gregor’s offering a boatload of money that would go a long way toward making her dream of creating a fine arts school for gifted kids a reality. She can ignore his smiles, his charisma, and his kiss-me mouth if it means she’ll get her school. All she has to do is remind herself, every second of every day they’re together, that it’s all make believe—even when it doesn’t always feel that way. 

When Greg’s love of racing puts his life in jeopardy, Kara isn’t ready to watch another person die in front of her like her father did. And Greg isn’t about to stop doing the one thing that makes life worth living. The two are on a collision course, one that could break them apart forever if they don’t change directions…

My Review:

The Billionaire’s Sham Girlfriend is a quick romantic read that will leave you wanting for more. At the beginning of the story we are introduced to Kara Alerby, a theater teacher who is all too happy to start her first session of summer improv. She loves what she does, but when she gets the news that the theater has been put on sale she is ready to do just about anything in order to save it. But she having bad luck, which soon ends the minute a sexy new student joins her class. He seemed all too preoccupied with his phone that she doesn’t see him right away, but when she picks him to create a scene with her she finally gets to fully see him and she is immediately taken by him. 

Gregor Beaumont attended the improv class for the sole purpose of hiring an actress to pose as his girlfriend and later wife in order to comply to his grandfather’s will. But the minute he sees Kara, he is immediately attracted to her and wants to get to know her more. As the face of B3 Motors, he co-owns the company with his two brothers who have been put in the same position as him, to find a wife in a short amount of time in order to keep their company. This has put tremendous pressure on Gregor and he is willing to do anything and everything in order to keep the company. It is after Kara agrees to his proposition that everything changes for them right away. He no longer wants to fake his relationship with her and wants to make things official. Yet, their pasts are what it’s keeping them from moving forward and they must deal with them first if they want to have a future together.

I really enjoyed reading this story, although the idea is not completely unique, the author was able to put her own little spin to it at the beginning. Their first interaction was fun to read, the character truly connected from the start and it was sizzling after that. I do have to say that the story felt a bit rushed for me. There were times when I felt that the author skipped some parts and felt a bit unresolved at the end. I’m really interested to read the rest of Gregor’s brother’s stories, the next book sounds very promising. I would recommend reading this story if you’re looking for something quick and romantic to read. :)

My Rating: 3.5/5


Leslie North is the pen name for a critically-acclaimed author of women’s contemporary romance and fiction. The anonymity gives her the perfect opportunity to paint with her full artistic palette, especially in the romance and erotic fantasy genres.

The truth of the matter is she loves her fictional persona, Leslie North, more than her normal, day-to-day persona! Her bestselling books focus on strong characters and particularly women who aren’t afraid to challenge an alpha male. Inspired after years of travel, her stories are set all over the world, from the tough streets of Russia to the beautiful beaches of the middle east.

Leslie fell in love with romance when she first picked up a scrappy, dog-eared romance book from her local library. She began writing soon after and the rest, as they say, was history. She now lives in a cozy cottage on the British coast and enjoys taking long walks with her two Dalmatians, George and Fergie.

She LOVES reader feedback, and if you have any comments, don’t hesitate to contact her via e-mail:

Thanks for stopping by! :)
