Do It for the Fame

by Kaya LaSalle

Available in Kindle Unlimited

Lexi thought fake relationships were only something that happened on TV. That all changed when she ran into a desperate rock star…

Lexi Ashford prides herself on being drama-free. She’s built a reputation for being a talented hair and makeup artist, and she’s finally getting the kinds of gigs she always dreamed of. But when she’s hired to work at a one-night-only performance, she finds herself in over her head. Somehow she gets roped into pretending to be gorgeous rock star Daya West’s new girlfriend, and now the rest of the world thinks they’re in love. What’s a girl to do?

Daya West is just getting over a miserable breakup. Turns out that being a rock star isn’t enough to save a doomed relationship, and she’s still trying to piece her broken heart back together. Convincing the makeup artist at her show to be her fake girlfriend was supposed to be a one-night deal to get her ex off her back, but with the media watching their every move, they’re stuck maintaining the illusion.

What starts out as an act slowly becomes something more, leaving both women confused about where the lies end and the truth begins.

Can a relationship founded on deception ever grow into more? Or will the truth destroy any hope they have of finding love?


The Girlfriend Arrangement

Black Diamond: Book 1

by Anna Stone & Hildred Billings

Available in Kindle Unlimited

Fake girlfriends. Real chemistry.

Parker Black has put her bad girl days behind her. Once the rebellious, womanizing middle child of the wealthiest family in Seattle, she’s now the founder and CEO of a luxury lingerie label. But when an incident from her past resurfaces, everything she’s built threatens to come crashing down.

For up-and-coming public relations specialist Julia Conner, her job is her life. A former foster kid, she’s spent years climbing the ladder. So when Parker contacts her to help her come back from a scandal, Julia is determined to prove she can handle a big-name client like Parker Black.

But Julia isn’t prepared for the way the blonde-haired billionaire makes her weak at the knees. And she definitely isn’t prepared when Parker announces to the world that Julia is her girlfriend.

Swept into a fake romance with a woman who’s determined to tempt her into her bed, Julia is unable to resist Parker and her intoxicating power games. But is their relationship really just pretend? And with both their reputations on the line, will Parker and Julia be willing to put their hearts on the line too?

Don’t miss the first book in this hot new series from bestselling lesbian romance authors Anna Stone and Hildred Billings. Each book can be read as a standalone story.



Good Spin

by Monica McCallan

Available in Kindle Unlimited

Public Relations expert Emery Bates has exactly one problem she’s willing to admit, and it’s that she doesn’t have a girlfriend to take as her date to a wedding. Not because she needs a girlfriend, but because she needs an easier way to come out to college friends that she hasn’t seen in five years. Her job is about controlling the narrative, and as she sees it, there’s no reason why that can’t extend to her personal life. When her next door neighbor ends up single a few weeks before the wedding, problem solver Emery realizes inviting Jordan along and faking romance for a week in Hawaii could be perfect for both of them.

Jordan Davis doesn’t worry about much, especially what will happen tomorrow. Life’s too short to plan every second, and it usually doesn’t work out anyway. When Emery invites her on an all-expenses paid trip to Hawaii, it’s not a hard sell. She’ll get to enjoy a tropical vacation with one of her closest friends, and she’ll get to spend more time with Emery, away from Emery’s hectic work schedule back in Austin.

But, there’s more to the request than Emery’s letting on, and there’s more to Jordan’s willingness to help than she wants to admit. It’s only eight days, but time passes differently when there’s nowhere to be and nowhere to hide. Faking it is all about the spin, but when lines begin to blur, both women have to decide if falling in love for real is worth the jump.
