From Fake to Forever by Jennifer Shirk {Review}

From Fake to Forever by Jennifer Shirk
Kindle Edition, 208 pages
Published June 6th 2016 by Entangled Publishing, LLC (Bliss) 
Sandra Moyer’s preschool is struggling, so when her sister suggests allowing a super-famous actor to research his latest role there, she reluctantly agrees. Except the actor turns out to be Ben Capshaw—a playboy who’s never serious, always joking around, and who knows zero about kids or being a parent. Case in point: his involvement in the untimely death of the preschool’s class pet…

Ben is enjoying teaching more than he thought he would, but that doesn’t mean he’s looking for a permanent position. Sure, he’s ready for more serious movie roles and less goofing off, but the buttoned-up, beautiful Sandra and her young daughter are more than he bargained for. Plus, Sandra still won’t trust him—what if it’s all an act, research for the role? As the lines between make-believe and reality blur, Ben will have to decide if love is worth casting aside the role of his life for a new role…that could last a lifetime.

Previously released as The Role of a Lifetime - (May 2008) and has been enhanced with new material.
My Review: 5 Stars
Sandra is the owner of a preschool and when famous Hollywood actor, Ben Capshaw, comes to research his potential role, she's not impressed. Little does she know, she had an encounter with him the previous day and thought he was a criminal! Add that to the fact that she has a past with an actor and that doesn't help Ben's case.This isn't a new idea, but this one is well done. I'm not a huge fan of a quick falling in love story, but this one is done in a way that is believable and fun--I loved every minute of it!
Isn't it said that opposites attract? I love the way these characters help each other become more well-rounded. Ben and Sandra each have their reasons for their respective behaviors (serious and playboy) and their personalities meshed well. I loved the witty banter, great sizzling (clean) chemistry, swoon-worthy moment, and humorous events--times when I was smiling and laughing out loud. This book has all the feel-good moments that capture my attention and took me for quite a ride. I love a good supporting cast and this one has that, for sure.
Ms. Shirk is a go-to author for a great, clean romance with a little zing. Her characters are dimensional and the story lines are very entertaining with perfect pacing. As always, I'm eagerly awaiting her next book!
Content: clean romance with kissing and some mild innuendo.
