This is a review of Mr. Mayfair by Louise Bay. It is an adult billionaire romance where the hero and the heroine pretended to have a relationship that turned real. The book is set in London and Scotland. Check out my review of Mr. Mayfair by Louise Bay below and find out why it gets a rare 5-star rating from Book Estuary.
It should be the most shocking news I’d ever gotten—My boyfriend is getting married.
Okay, technically he’s my ex-boyfriend. Two months ago he decided he wanted a break. I still thought he was my happily ever after.
On any other day, knowing he was gone for good would be the worst thing that could possibly happen.
But not today.
Because not only is my boyfriend getting married—his bride is my best friend.
And they’ve sent me an invitation.
There’s no way I’m going to attend. I don’t care if it’s in beautiful Scotland.
Nothing and no one could convince me.
Not even when a deliciously handsome stranger tells me he needs to go as my plus one.
Not even when he shoots me a wickedly, sexy smile.
But then he offers me the opportunity of a lifetime—a dream come true. How can I say no?
But I have one condition. He has to be my new boyfriend. I mean, my pretend new boyfriend.
I’m about to find out that faking it can be a whole lot of fun.
A stand-alone, contemporary romance.
Book Estuary Review
The Need for a Pretend Relationship
This is the story of Stella and Beck. Beck was trying to get a property that meant a lot to him. He may be wealthy but he just can’t get a connection to the current owner of the property. Then came a wedding event that is to be set in Scotland. The property owner will be there and he badly needs an invitation to be able to attend the said wedding. So, he looked for single ladies who were invited to the wedding and offered himself as a date or rather a deal that they can’t resist.
The lucky girl was Stella. Although Stella did not realize it yet at first because the couples who were about to get married in Scotland are her ex-boyfriend for 7 years and her best friend. To make matter worse Stella only learned about the wedding from the invitation that was given to her.
What I like about Stella is despite her forbearing and gullible personality at first, she knows how to love unconditionally. She did love Matt her ex truthfully. She sacrificed a lot for him moving to London, giving up her own business, and receiving the burden of the house mortgage where they lived. Also, she has the skills and talent for designing properties and it is something that makes her admirable.
Although Stella did not really stand for herself in front of Matt and Karen, I actually approve of her actions. Well, there’s one time that she did talk back to Karen but she was still acting calmly in a way considering the things they did to her. In my opinion, how Stella handled the situation actually makes her look better and more commendable in this respect. In a way, she’s not stooping to the level of the people who hurt her, and eventually, she had let good karma to come her way.
Doubting her ability in judging people, she was in a way expecting the worse from Beck and was not exactly appreciating the things Beck did for her. Eventually, she learned and you can’t help but love how their story progresses.
Mr. Mayfair by Louise Bay is surely a must-read if you are looking for a pretend relationship that turned real. You will surely have a happy feeling when you are done reading this story. It is dual-POV and a short read. I give this book my 5-star rating.
