Publisher's Summary

“When I kissed you last night, I wasn’t pretending.”

Everly Dalton is a walking, talking, martini-drinking dating disaster. Forget kissing frogs. She can’t even get past the first date. But at work, she’s a badass - the longest-running assistant billionaire Shepherd Calloway has ever had. Her coworkers wonder how she handles the big bad wolf and never gets bit. 

Shepherd Calloway isn’t interested in being anyone’s sugar daddy. Tired of women who only want him for his money, he swears off dating, determined to focus on running his empire. Until his gold-digging ex hits him where it hurts, putting him in a difficult position.

His solution to have Everly pose as his live-in girlfriend is obviously crazy, but the timing is uncanny. It just so happens Everly needs a favor from her boss - a big and awkward one - and this could ensure everyone gets what they want.

Besides, Everly can totally survive a few months of faux romance. Except there’s a problem. Shepherd is supposed to be a single-minded, unemotional robot boss. Not an actual human with a heart and morning wood. Between the awkward bed-sharing and tingly fake dates, lines are blurring. And as Everly gets to know the real Shepherd, she discovers there’s more to the man behind the bank account.

And faking it gets all too real...

Faking Ms. Right is a hot, stand-alone romantic comedy.

Holy. F$#&!@%. S#*@. That man and all his deliciousness!!

I had already read this book before it was ever in audio, in fact, it was my first Claire Kingsley book and it kept my ass up allll night! I was hooked on the characters and their interactions and their dilemmas. Everly and her friends cracked me up! (I can't wait for Hazel's story coming to Kindle January 23rd, Love According to Science!!) Shepherd was intriguing and delightful as always. But let me tell you...having it in audio was aMAzing! (Triple hotness running the audio through my surround system, let me tell ya! Yessss!) At first I wasn't sure how I felt about Emma Wilder, especially her inner dialogue voice, but she grew on me or maybe she changed a bit throughout, I'm not sure. But Jason Clarke as Shepherd...SPAloosh!! Holy hell, his voice was perfect for Shep, all deep and gravely and hot. Him reading those smoking hot moments will cause a river...or disintegrate panties...or make a menopausal hot flash seem like a small fever. That man...he is at the top of my list now with this other voice-hottie (my Fire changed that to "double-digit" and now I'm back reliving some hot scenes in the story...*sigh*) of mine and I will be seeking out future romance novels with him as the reader. Yes please!! I have sooooo many books on my TBR to get through but I'd been kind of dying to re-read this one so I figured audio was an excellent way to do that and I am definitely pleased that I did!!!

Just okay....

As usual....Jason Clark did a great job narrating. Emma Wilder did and ok job but a bit flat. The story itself was ok. I felt like most of the contact between the two main characters was mostly inner dialogue, so it didn't make since they would have a real connection.

WARM, LIGHT & NICELY PACED FAKERY

When it comes to ‘fake’ relationships you pretty much know going in that the agreed upon ‘bargain’ is going to spectacularly backfire on them both, you know that there will be a wrench tossed in to muddy the waters for a while and that it’ll end on a sweet HEA. But it’s the hero and heroine’s characters that make all the difference, it’s the narration that brings all the likeable characters to life and brings the feels.. and it’s the well-written humor, wit, passion, sex, secondary characters and character growth that make all the difference.. and this book deliciously ticked ALL the boxes.

A cold, moody, sexy, alpha Billionaire, his sweet, efficient, warm-hearted, loving PA and a heartwarming lineup of family, friends and other secondary characters. A scheming ex, good intentions blur lines, a favor asked and a favor granted, lust, passion, sex and secrets shared and a knee-jerk reaction causes waves.. yet true love shines through in this very entertaining dual POV romance. Because, scratch the surface of this cold aloof Billionaire and you’ll find his warmth, his passion and his heart.. it just took the right woman to do it.

Worth a credit? Yes it’s definitely a wysiwyg book (what you see is what you get).. great narration (still love you Jason), humor, heart, heat, a hiccup and happy ever afters in a slow-build office/fake romance that deliciously unfurls it’s dreamy delights, teases you with possibilities and leaves your senses satisfied.

I love this series

It was a funny, steamy and full of love (not only between Everly and Shep). Watching their relationship go from boss-assistant to a fake couple to a real couple was highly entertaining.
I end up the book wanting to be friends with Everly, who wouldn’t want? She is funny, smart and fierce. But what I wanted more was to be part of the circle of trust of the 3 girls. I wish I had a group of friends that you can count for everything and can understand each other with just a look in the eye.
Everly and Shep slow burn romance was also a great turn of events, even though they start with a fake relationship, they’ve grown to be friends, to understand their flaws and how to be better, together.
I had a lot of listening to this audiobook and diving into their stories all over again.

Seattle based rom-com.

Faking Ms. Right by Claire Kingsley was a great rom-com. I especially loved that it was set in Seattle and that I’ve been to almost all of the places referenced. It is R rated in places.

Hot Fake Relationship Romance!!

Oh Claire Kingsley how I've missed your books! Faking Ms. Right was everything I love about a hot steamy fake romance and more. This book is narrated by Jason Clarke and Emma Wilder.

Everly has never had much luck in the dating department as of late. She thinks she is cursed. She goes and one date, and they never seem to work out. She is currently the personal assistant to Shepherd Calloway. Not many people can work for this uptight businessman but Everly makes it work. Shepherd is recently getting out of a relationship, and then is put in an uncomfortable situation where he needs a new fake girlfriend. Well, we know where this is headed, and I love it!

Jason Clarke and Emma Wilder's voices were super hot together in this book. Jason's voice had that trademark growl, and his female voice of Everly was spot on! Emma portrayed all of Everly's insecurities and personality traits perfectly. These two narrators are always one clicks for me!

Overall, I enjoyed this book by Claire Kingsley. I had listened or read any of her books in a while, and forgotten how hot and steamy they were! I really liked the whole plot and characters in this story. I look forward to checking out more in this series!

❤ Beautiful, sweet and absolutely delicious ❤

Shephard, is a man who is swearing off women.
All they do is use him for his money.
He has just broken up with his latest fling and sent her off on a nice vacation.
The only problem is, she went after his father, who happens to own a resort.

Everly Dalton, is an assistant for the illusive Shephard Calloway.
She had survived three years. No one has ever done that.
She is like a breath of fresh air.
Everyone loves her with her bright smile and captivating personality, what's not to love.
When her boss asks her to step in as his girlfriend she does it.
Her sister has her sights set on Shephard, as possibly being a sperm donor, and asked her, to help broker the deal.
Everly, has had one dating disaster after another, so when her boss asked her to move in, because his father will be moving in with him also due to financial woes and cancer and along with seeing his ex who he believes is just using his dad to get close to him, she figures why not. It can't be any worse than her dating disasters.
Only one problem, when Shephard starts to feel, he lets his guard down with Everly.
Everly, also can't help but fall for the real man Shephard is showing her that he really is.
This is a happy ever after story with a great storyline. It has all the feels.

Jason Clarke, is such a great narrator. He just seems to pull you into the story and his voice is so smooth.

Emma Wilder has awesome voice personalities. I love when she reads the male version and every single character gets to have their own voice. It's so refreshing.

I'm really looking forward to this whole series. 🙂

Fun, Sweet and Absorbing...

This book hooked me in from the first chapter. A simple yet absorbing storyline that maintained its captivation from start to finish!

An out of this world situation that bough two perfect people together…
I read the review before listening to this book, those saying that “the story/premise this book hinged on was just ridiculous….” I do believe reviewers like this took a wrong turn from nonfiction to fiction… We read romance for the escape and that is exactly what this book helped me do... I blocked out the rest of the world, good and proper!
This is a very well written, low angst story that will hold you captive until the end…. Teamed up with a spectacular performance by Jason Clarke (swoon) and Emma Wilder (does male voices better than a lot of men!) and this is a win, win… Go on… Pleasure your ears… Get this book in your library!

Lots of good bits

There were lots of good bits to this story, but the basic premise that the book hinged on (sister’s request and dad/ex situation) was just ridiculous. Just, what?! But other than that, I’ll get more from the author because I liked it in general.

Fabulous Story & Narration🎧 A Heartfelt Delight!

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, Claire Kingsley is a talented author, she creates stories and characters that are realistic and easy to relate to. I first met Everly Dalton in “Everly Dalton's Dating Disasters” a fun RomCom and prequel to this book. She is such a likable character, she is a grounded person with a great disposition and personality. She is the executive assistant to Shepherd Calloway and is great at her job. Shepherd Calloway, a billionaire and brilliant businessman, is not very personable and comes off as an unemotional robot but Everly is used to him. When he asks to pose as his girlfriend and then to move in with him she agrees. Then the unexpected happens, she sees that he is a human being and he sees how great Everly is. I loved these two together, she was just what Shepherd needed and they were perfect for each other. I loved how everything played out, there is never a dull moment with plenty of drama, a bit of angst, some great humor and fun moments, as well as heartfelt ones and a great romance. Loved the smoking hot bonus epilogue! Claire Kingsley thank you for another great story!

I listened to the Audible edition, Jason Clarke and Emma Wilder are terrific narrators and voice artists. They bring the characters to life giving each their own voice and personality as well as heart and attitude. I adore Emma’s portrayal of Everly, she sounds just as you picture her to and Jason’s Shepherd was spot on too. They set the perfect tone for the story, capturing the drama and the humor. They are entertaining storytellers and a pleasure to listen to. Thank you for another great listen🎧

Loved this

I loved this book so much, seeing the main characters trying to ignore what was happening between them was so enjoyable. It was really well written and thought out and the narration just gave it that extra little push. Definitely one to relisten to.

funny and sweet with great narration

A fun, sweet romantic comedy with a heartwarming edge. I love Everly Dalton. She is sweet, happy, sunshine. She is a perfect foil to Shepherd, who is initially described as robot like but we find out throughout the book that we can’t judge a book by its cover. They were wonderful together and the way their relationship grows was a treat to read, and pretty realistic given she has worked with him for 3 years prior to pretending to be his girlfriend. It may have started as fake to throw off his father’s gold digging girlfriend but it quickly turns real. Add to it the awesome supporting cast- her best friends and sister plus partner. His father and brother plus partner. It was a well rounded ensemble romantic comedy. I hope others in this book get their happy endings in future books!

I also listened to the audiobook. Look, it's Jason Clarke. He's fantastic and he has the most perfect voice for Shepherd, not to mention great pacing and timing. Emma Wilder was also really great. I felt like Everly had the most hilarious lines and Emma did a great job playing them off. Their narration added to the story, increasing my pleasure with this book.

I requested and received this audiobook and read the ebook through kindle unlimited.

Fun, amusing and steamy...I loved it

Faking Ms. Right is my first Claire Kingsley novel and I loved it. This standalone romance was fun, amusing and steamy and I was hooked from beginning to end. It had both office romance and fake relationship trope included in one fantastic tale.
I loved the characters. Everly and Shepherd made a great couple. I loved how well they interacted together and I enjoyed watching their relationship move from fake to something more.
The supporting characters greatly added to the story and provided balance and support to the main characters. I especially loved Shepherd's father and Everly's friends. This novel was a fantastic read and I would highly recommend it to all lovers of Romantic comedies.
I listened to the audible version which was narrated by Jason Clarke and Emma Wilder. Their voices were perfectly suited to this story. Their pace and timing was excellent. I loved how they gave the characters their own personalities. It was a pleasure listening to them narrate this novel.

fairly light, hot, 3.5

enjoyable and fairly easily forgotten. no unnecessary drama or angst. Characters largely well developed for storyline, plot good enough to drive the story and create the situation for relationship development and resolution. Narrators good, I just don't really care for the female narrator's tone - annoys a bit with its smoothness I think

Favourite herione.

Love Everly and Shepard. Everly is one of my favourite heroines. The chemistry between Everly and Shepard is expolsive. It is very satisfying reading or listening. Audio takes this fantastic story just an extra level higher. Jason Clarke and Emma Wilder do a fantastic job bringing these characters to life.

A fun, sexy read/listen

Faking Ms Right was a fun, sexy read. Of course I had to then one-click the audio version after realising Jason Clarke was one of the narrators. Emma Wilder was great to listen to as well.

Faking Ms. Right was a very fun book to read. Everly's history of first date disasters is hilarious - it was only after finishing this that I realised there is a short prequel available " Everly Dalton's Dating Disasters", so I've one-clicked that now as well.

Everly Dalton may be unlucky in finding love, but she's been very successful at work, with her position as the longest-running assistant to Shepherd Calloway. Shepherd, who Everly likens to an emotionally stunted robot, was an interesting character. Very reserved, and quite cold in his interactions with everyone. The complete opposite to Everly, who becomes besties with basically everyone she meets.

An unexpected situation requires these 2 complete opposites to fake a relationship, and Everly poses as the live in girlfriend. Despite their differences, the chemistry between Everly and Shepherd was hot - this book was hotter than I was expecting!!!! Loved Everly's 2 besties, Nora and Hazel, so was happy to see that the author has plans to write their books as well.

Enjoyed the story.

This was an easy listening, if not predictable story line. There was not much angst, so didnt tug on the heart strings. The narration was good. Classic it was only meant as s means to an end, but feelings and love got in the way. A secret is exposed, causing an end to a relationship that was getting more permanent than it was suppose to.
