Series: Off Guard #1
on November 6, 2017
An aspiring actress navigates the gig of a lifetime...and an illicit desire she never saw coming in the first book of a brand-new series from Katie Ruggle writing as Katie Allen.
It's an offer she can't refuse. Two weeks of work for enough cash to quit her day job and focus on auditions is a dream come true for struggling actress Topher. All she has to do is play girlfriend to a wealthy friend, helping him secure his trust fund. Then she meets her friend's sinfully handsome, firmly off-limits uncle, and all bets are off.
Not only is Uncle James surprisingly younger than imagined, he's charismatic and hot as hell. And there's something about the wounded veteran's hungry stare that has her thinking the feeling is mutual.
Topher's determined to ignore Uncle Sexy, but the forbidden temptation is too much to handle, especially after James flashes his dominant side. But surrendering to temptation is easier said than done when the plot thickens. Even if Topher can manage to fool everyone involved, she's not sure she can fool her own heart—or the man she's definitely not supposed to be falling for.

4 Seriously Hysterical Daddy Stars ⭐️
Acting Lessons is a great representation of what a great Daddy Kink book should be like without being cliche and creepy!
Topher our heroine is undercover as a fake girlfriend. Part time actress and technically struggling she agrees to this gig to help out a friend in exchange for a fee. What she hadn’t anticipated was Uncle James and their unlikely attraction.
For those of you that are looking for a well written daddy kink novel, look no further because Katie Allen nailed it. In the spirit of Act your Age by Eve Dangerfield, this book was hard to put down, hilarious and filthy (you have been warned). This book is extremely underrated and a hidden gem. Just ignore the cheesy cover.
