Max Tremblay should be happy. His night club, Frantic, is one of the most popular gay clubs in Toronto, and his childhood refuge, Ringside Gym, is well on the way to reopening. But when he finds yet another drunk in the alley beside the bar, Max isn’t sure this is the life he truly wants.

Grady Barnes has it all. He’s rich, famous, and wants for nothing. Well, nothing but a good relationship with his father. When he discovers that his father is going to force him into an arranged marriage, Grady has had enough. He tracks down Max, the man who got him to safety after a night of overindulgence, and makes him a proposal: pretend to be his fiancĂ© for two weeks and he’ll invest in Ringside Gym.

When the pair travel to Vancouver to attend a family wedding, the flames of their mutual attraction ignite, and they discover that the only difference between pretend and reality is how well they can fake it.


The second book in the Ringside Romance series is Faking It by Christine D'Abo. Though part of a series, you really do not have to read the first book to get this one.
Max he owns a night club. His childhood refuge was the Ringside Gym. He is getting kinda tired of cleaning up after drunk people. But he is a good person and will help where he can.
Grady has always wanted his father to love him. He wants for nothing money can give. His father is going to give him off in an arranged marriage. He goes to Max for help. He gets a lot more than he thought he would out of it.
I think at first these two seem rather unlikely as a love match but the more you peel back the layers you see they really do make sense. I loved the humor and just easy going nature of this book. Makes for a great read to unwind and fall in love.
I liked the duel POV's in this story. It allowed me to get into the heads of both characters and really feel what they were feeling. I liked this one and cannot wait for the next one to come out.
