Magee Sinclair works for the family advertising agency and is set to take over the helm once her father retires. Recently though, she just cannot get anything right. Desperate to prove she is not a screw up she is relieved when she lands a contract, a contract she believes will save her career. There is only one problem though, when she met with Justin Kane, the owner of a bike shop. Justin hopes to expand his bike shop and Magee promised him she was the right person for the job. But she had to tell a lie to get him to agree to use her family’s advertising agency.
What could possibly go wrong?
When Justin’s girlfriend dumps him just before the client he is trying to woo flies into the country, he finds himself turning to Magee to help him out of a bind. After all, she has as much to lose as he does if the client does not invest in his company. Justin needs a temporary girlfriend, a woman who told him she loved mountain biking as much as he did.
When Justin approaches Magee asking her to be his stand in girlfriend, outlining what the weekend will entail, she cannot believe that her small, white lie has come back to haunt her in such a way. But, believing she can pull the whole pretend girlfriend gig off without anyone being any the wiser, she agrees.
This is a very fast paced read, but really enjoyable all the same. It is not difficult keeping up with the plot. You know its going to go wrong eventually.
Magee is a very likable character and you find yourself willing everything to work out for her and Justin, especially when Tina, Justin’s ex, turns up causing a scene and threatening to expose the lie.
An excellent read.
