Bad boy Luc O’Donnell, son of iconic former rock star parents and unwitting focus of the British tabloid press, needs a fast image makeover. His friends suggest he find a nice, upstanding fake boyfriend who will agree to date him for appearance sake. Oliver, a handsome barrister and Luc’s complete opposite, needs a pretend date for his parents’ 40th anniversary party. Sounds like a match made in heaven, right? This is a funny, clever, sometimes poignant rom-com that fans of Casey McQuiston’s Red, White & Royal Blue will love!
Luc O'Donnell is tangentially?and reluctantly?famous. His rock-star parents split when he was young, and the father he's never met spent the next twenty years cruising in and out of rehab. Now that his dad's making a comeback, Luc's back in the public eye, and one compromising photo is enough to ruin everything.To clean up his image, Luc has to find a nice normal relationship...and Oliver Blackwood is as nice and normal as they come. He's a barrister, an ethical vegetarian, and someone who has never inspired a moment of scandal in his life. In other words, he's perfect boyfriend material. Unfortunately, apart from being gay, single, and really really in need of a date for a big event, Luc and Oliver have nothing in common. So they strike a deal to be publicity-friendly (fake) boyfriends until the dust settles. Then they can go their separate ways and pretend it never happened.But the thing about fake-dating is that it can feel a lot like real-dating. And that's when you get used to someone...start falling for them...don't ever want to let them go.
