    Shocking reveals, never ending secrets and hidden dangers are a constant with this group of friends. It's nice to know that no matter the scenario, someone always has your back. The Captured by Love series is an exciting mesh of red herrings and titillating lust. A maze of danger waiting to be solved drives friendships and awakens hearts. The Unreal Boyfriend has Derek and Bernadette in the hot seat this time around. Derek is searching for answers. Bernadette is hoping for love. In this game of cat and mouse, trust is a luxury that neither have. Not only are hearts at risk, but lives may be at stake. The suspense is killer, the romance is electric and the drama is edge of the seat intense.

    Vengeance, Lies, and True Love

    When does one draw the line? When does one raise their white flag and walk away? Would it be foolish to stay instead? Love isn't easy. When it comes to love that is long-standing and seemingly one-sided, it becomes harder to deal with. Bernadette's love for Derek hasn't waned despite time and circumstances. Regardless of the wariness she feels about getting close to him, walking away isn't an option. He's it for her, and she knows she can be it for him if only... If only what exactly? The answer lies under all the blacked out areas of their relationship, or lack thereof if you prefer. Derek's looking for answers. He has a score to settle with his uncle and he won't stop until the job's complete. But the one woman he wants and needs is the one woman he risks losing if he doesn't open up and let her in. Having his friend play the part of his fake girlfriend, however, isn't helping his cause regarding Bernadette. Bernadette's safety and well-being take precedent over Derek's longings to really be with her. Until he solves the mystery surrounding his father's death, he won't take the chance. Seeming to string Bernadette along is the only suitable answer. But is the potential result worth it? Sometimes, yes. But it's going to take a lot of groveling to get back into someone's good graces when they feel wronged, even if your intentions are good. Derek and Bernadette's happily ever after has been a long time coming. The wait, I believe, was worth it, not just for this reader but for the characters as well. A bit of mystery and suspense seamlessly entwined with romance made this an edge-of-my-seat read. Ms. Charles's signature flair for evocative writing shines bright and strong in this. It doesn't diminish despite this being her umpteenth book as well as book nine of this series. She stays true to form and gives this reader a story that is worth reading again. 4.5* Received from publisher for an honest review

    Sexy, mysterious, fun romance

    So, who will be the next bachelor to fall? Bernadette has had a crush on Derek from the first moment she met him but Derek just sees her as a friend. For several years, Derek has been seeing someone that no one in their friend circle has met. Yet, Derek does flirt with Bernie at many of the parties and events. When Derek needs a ‘fake’ girlfriend, Bernie is excited at the opportunity. Is there a chance that fake can be real? Derek has many more secrets than the woman he has been seeing. There is a great mystery to his journey. I really enjoyed the added twists and turns this added to the story. Bernie is a breath of fresh air with a wonderful sense of humor and a big heart that always puts others first. This is a challenge when Derek sends mixed signals but gives so much to devour with the complexity of their romance.
