There were a few things I really loved about this one, and a few things I'd have rather done without. I'm never a big fan of lies, but since this one was just about the relationship to stranger instead of to the people in the relationship, it didn't bother me. It was actually a clever way to drum up business for Olivia, she just didn't think far enough ahead for a way out. This is something that Mason was quick to take advantage of.
There are two sides to every Gemini guy...and one of them is red-hot.
Olivia Carter has a handsome, millionaire boyfriend. She's madly in love with him. The hitch? He doesn't actually exist. She told the lie to saveForever, her wedding design shop. And it worked-almost too well. As the media attention increases, so do the demands for Olivia to produce her "boyfriend." With both her reputation and career in jeopardy, Olivia is desperate enough to do almost anything...
Which is exactly what millionaire Mason Parker wants. Thanks to Olivia and her father, Mason went through hell during his teen years, and now it's time for a little payback-starting with the announcement that he's her one and only. Now the sexy Olivia has no choice but to do what Mason wants. But none of his plans for vengeance included falling in love with the woman he planned to ruin...
Mason's reasons for a pretend relationship are much different that Olivia's. Mason is out for revenge - and after hearing his story I totally get why. But Olivia gets caught in the crossfire and he doesn't seem to want to see that. He hurts her a lot by the way he acts, and that made it difficult to like him a whole lot. On the other hand, he really was a good guy that had his outlook on things warped by some bad people.
The way some of the issues were resolved (I can't say too much or I risk ruining some things) just didn't seem to feel right. Too much was still left undone or unsaid. While the relationship definitely wrapped up nicely in a bow, the side events that caused all the conflict just didn't give me any real sense of resolution with them
