Marissa has had about all she can take of her busy-body, interfering mother and when she tries to push Marissa to take back her cheating, lying ex Marissa is forced to do the only thing she can under the circumstances. She creates a fictitious boyfriend in a somewhat familiar looking guy she sees across the restaurant... which may just work, as long as no one else realizes who he really is. Marissa is starved for acceptance and desperately in need of some really great sex, and she can't believe she may find it all with her sci-fi TV soap star. But can she keep her heart from getting involved in this farce or was it too late before their deal ever began?
Simon is at the top of the list to get the lead in a big movie deal but when the producers show concern over his previous behavior surrounding women he conjures up a way to prove he has cleaned up his act. Helping out the beautiful woman in the restaurant escape her authoritative and overbearing mother is just a bonus to the deal he offers her. But when Simon realizes he's invested too much of his heart in the fake relationship he can't get out fast enough because who could ever love him if they knew the truth.
And a small thing-using Borg as his alien character name just threw the whole vibe off.
Told from dual first person points of view (Marissa and Simon) LIP ACTION focuses on the fake boyfriend/girlfriend relationship between British b-list actor Simon Dale, and marketing specialist Marissa Woodcrest. Simon’s reputation in Hollywood as a manwhore keeps our hero on the b-list of celebrities and in the news. Hoping to land a lucrative role in an upcoming Hollywood blockbuster movie, our hero is in desperate need of a committed girlfriend to impress the people behind the scenes. Enter heiress, and marketing specialist Marissa Woodcrest, whose own personal life has fallen onto hard times with the discovery that her fiancé had been having an affair with his office secretary. Pressure from her mother to rekindle with her former flame, finds our heroine secretly agreeing to become Simon’s girlfriend to keep her mother off of her back. What ensues is the building relationship between Simon and Marissa, and the fall out when the truth is revealed.
Marissa Woodcrest is the daughter and heiress of well- to –do businessman Raul Woodcrest but Marissa’s earlier years were fraught with questionable behavior and run-ins with the law. Hoping to keep up appearances, Marissa’s recent engagement was everything her mother had ever wanted but not so our story line heroine. Simon Dale (Richards) grew up the son of a drunk, and a drug addict but needed an image change when the studios came calling. His reputation as a manwhore did not appeal to the bigwigs in charge, and a steady girlfriend is just what was needed and Marissa was ripe for the picking. The $ex scenes are intimate and intense. Simon likes to talk dirty in the bedroom, against the wall, on the beach……
There are a large number of secondary and supporting characters including Marissa’s ex Charles, and Simon’s ex Janelle, Marissa’s parents Raul and June, as well as her brother Kenny and sister Larissa; Simon’s sister Dana, his friend and agent Declan Kiss; and Hollywood producers Arnold and Edward Spires.
The world building follows the lies and secrets that begin to spiral out of control. As Simon desperately battles for his upcoming role, Marissa comes to the realization that she has fallen in love with a man who isn’t looking for a permanent relationship.
LIP ACTION is sexy and spicy read with a little bit of humor, heartbreak, and a happily ever after. The premise is entertaining; the characters are colorful; the romance is seductive. The story line needs another round of editing due to some spelling and grammar issues, as well as a mix up in names e.g. Woodcrest vs Woodward-hopefully the errors were corrected before the final release.
