It might be a sham to his boss, but it's all too real to him.

Administrative assistant Jonah Hollis has nurtured a hopeless crush on his boss, millionaire cattle rancher Lincoln Courtwright, ever since he started working for him. But hope is kindled when Linc and beautiful rodeo star Melissa Cutler break up just weeks before the biggest event of the Dallas social season, the Cattle Baron’s Ball, and Linc asks Jonah to accompany him in her place.

Is it all a ploy to make Melissa jealous? Can Jonah fit into Linc’s world? It takes some encouragement from his roommates and his best friend, Caylee, for Jonah to agree. Before long, Jonah dares to believe Linc might just feel something for him… until interfering family and a series of misunderstandings threaten his fragile dream of happiness.

The Cattle Baron's Bogus Boyfriend by Nicki Bennett has a sweet romance that made me smile as I read it. Jonah is half way in love with his boss. He tries to tamper down those feelings because he is the man's personal assistant. He came from a home town where he has always had to hide he was gay, so he didn't dare come out. He always thinks he falls short of being the perfect person. He is adorably cute in this book. He would do anything for the guy he loves, and he proves it in this book.
Linc is very down to Earth. Good natured and fair minded. He is not above doing anything he can to get the man he wants. He wants his adorable personal assistant Jonah, he just has to make the man want him back.
Over all this is a very sweet and fun story. I liked how Linc makes Jonah more confident and Jonah brings joy and a little chaos to Linc's well ordered life.
