Nothing But Trouble

Billionaire CEO Michael Vilander needed just one date. Creating a fake profile on his own matchmaking website may not have been his brightest move. But then Sophia Baldwin’s arresting face pops up on his CHAT NOW feature. Not only is she gorgeous, but after spending half the night exchanging messages with her, he finds her to be naive, innocent and way too sexy.
Twenty-four-year-old Sophia Baldwin is barely able to make ends meet. Caring for her sick grandmother prevents her from having a normal life—aspirations of attending college full-time to become a nurse are on the back burner—but then she meets the charming and dazzling Clint on an online dating site. When he asks her to the Denver Arts Foundation’s Annual Valentine’s Day Gala, she’s confident things are looking up.
Once Sophia learns that her hot date is none other than website mogul Michael Vilander, she’s definitely not mentioning her night job. What’s a lie by omission anyway? After all, it’s only one date…Until Michael’s ex flaunts her fancy engagement ring in Michael’s face and something compels Sophia to announce her and Michael’s engagement. AKA, fake engagement. They agree on one month to pretend they’re in love before all bets are off.
Pretending to be in love with a sweet and sexy billionaire, but not actually falling in love, ahem, how hard could it be?
This is a decent concept for a story. But the expected source of the drama didn’t play out as expected, and Michael’s interactions with Mindy don’t sit right given her past behaviour and his relationship with Sophia.
And Sophia? Well, she is something of a dichotomy. Not at all what I expected, such that at times, her responses and decisions were a little jarring.
That said, this wasn’t a bad book – far from it. On the whole, I liked it. The characters were certainly colourful, and whilst I couldn’t always get behind their motivations, it was nevertheless an entertaining read.
I voluntarily reviewed a copy of this book.
