Billionaire CEO: Fake Girlfriend
An Enemies-to-Lovers Romance Novel
The good news: I didn’t sleep with him.
The bad news: I didn’t sleep with him.
The first time I met him, he gave me a fake name,
And a searing-hot mental picture of what he’d do to me later that night.
The next time I see him, it’s on my turf.
Aaron Patterson. The wealthiest man in NYC. Devil in a three-piece suit. The alpha of all alphas.
He’s sizing me up and threatening to take over my family’s business.
Are you kidding me? I’m so mad—I could strangle him.
But I’m a New York girl, at the top of my game,
And I’ll be damned if some smug gazillionaire intimidates me.
To my surprise, he offers a solution:
My company in exchange for an arrangement.
He needs a fake girlfriend, and I fit the bill.
Okay, fine. I’ll pose as his loving girlfriend.
Anything to stop my nemesis from ruining my legacy.
The rules are clear.
#1 No kissing.
#2 No sex.
#3 No stealing my business out from under me.
I’ve got this—I’m 100% not going to be dumb and fall into his sheets.
But when the lines between us blur, my feelings follow.
As much as my mind says “Hell no,” my body decides it doesn’t give a damn.
I can’t keep my mind off of him.
Or my hands.
How did I end up in his bedroom?
I’m in big trouble.
Falling for him wasn’t part of the deal.
And all bets are off now.

“Miss, you can’t just barge in here!” Nora insisted. “You need an appointment to see Mr. Patterson.”
Audrey looked like she was on a mission. “This will only take a minute,” she told my assistant before rounding to face me. “Okay, I have questions that need answering before we talk further.”
Nora was noticeably alarmed, but I got to my feet and gestured for her to leave. “Miss Miller is fine, Nora,” I reassured her. “Excuse us.”
With a nod, Nora hurried out of the room and closed the door behind her.
“Audrey, it’s nice to see you again,” I said, leaning against the front of my desk. I mostly meant it. She looked tired, and there were noticeable circles under her eyes as if she hadn’t gotten much sleep.
“No pleasantries. Let’s talk business.” After pulling it as far from me as she could, Audrey sat in the chair across from my desk and crossed her legs.
“All right,” I agreed. I’d play her little game, only because I wanted to know what her demands were. I crossed my arms and gave her a calm look. “Talk.”
“First off, who the hell do you think you are?!” she asked. “You stroll into Pace and slap down an offer as if you’re buying your morning coffee, and then you turn around and try to hire me to be … whatever it is you want. You’ve got a lot of damned nerve!”
“Is that why you showed up at my office?” I asked. “To yell at me?”
Audrey fixed me with a glare. “Oh, trust me, when I yell at you, you’ll know it,” she threatened. “I need to know what is going on in your head. One of the reasons I’m even entertaining the idea is because I’m curious.”
Questions began flooding my mind at her admission. Curious about what? About me as a person? About my life? About my company? “What’s the other reason?”
“I’m asking the questions here,” Audrey reminded me. “Why make this deal in the first place?”
She had more fire than I’d given her credit for. I rarely got this much pushback outside the boardroom. It was a shame I had taken sex off the table because I was sure sex with Audrey would be dynamite.
“Because I don’t have time for anything else. Relationships are messy. I’d rather do without them.”
She didn’t speak right away, only studied me through narrowed eyes. I didn’t care if she believed me—I just wanted to move the conversation along so she would give me the answer I’d asked for.
“Why not just ask a friend?” She raised a brow in question.
“I don’t do friendships, either.”
Something akin to pity flashed in her hazel eyes. I didn’t like it.
“Are you going to accept my deal, or not?” I asked. “I have a company to run.”
Audrey sighed, and her shoulders drooped as the tension finally left her body. “If this is going to happen, I have one condition.”
I knew I could provide anything she demanded, so long as it was within reason. I remained silent, gesturing for her to continue.
“If I do this for you, you withdraw your offer to buy Pace.”
I stared at her for a few moments, thinking over her proposal.
“That’s the only condition?” I crossed my arms against my chest. “What’s the catch?”
“No catch.” Audrey shook her head. “I pretend to be your girlfriend for a short time, and you leave my cousin’s company alone. Those are my only terms.”
Cousin? Shit. Come to think of it, she had mentioned something about Pace being her cousin’s company, but I was so preoccupied, that I hadn’t paid attention.
Now her fury made sense. For her, it wasn’t just about loyalty to her boss, but also loyalty to her family. I felt a spark of respect. But, the fact that she only had one condition made even less sense in the context of her situation.
“I don’t believe you.”
She rolled her eyes. “That’s too bad.”
“People always want more,” I said. “You can’t possibly have only one condition.”
“I had another, but you covered that already,” Audrey admitted. “I’m not going to sleep with you.”
“Good, we finally found something we agree on.”
“So, you don’t agree to my other term?” she asked, meeting my eyes.
I studied her carefully. “How much?”
“How much what?” A look of confusion spread across her face.
“Let’s not play coy.” I gave her an unamused look. “How much money do you want? I told you I would pay you for your time, and I meant it.”
Audrey looked as if I’d just spat in her face. “I don’t want your money.”
“So, the only thing you want is for me to stop trying to buy Pace?”
She nodded. “Yes.”
It was a fairly large condition. The official offer for Pace was already in the works, and it would take a lot of convincing the board to withdraw it. However, it wasn’t impossible. Plus, she’d neglected to specify how long I’d have to stop trying, so, theoretically, once we parted ways, I could resume the buyout.
“Fine.” I uncrossed my arms and stood up straight. “No sex. No falling in love. You pose as my girlfriend for a few months, and I won’t try to buy your cousin’s company.” I extended my hand.
Audrey looked as if she was already regretting her decision. She reached out, grasped my hand, and shook it.
