GENRE: Contemporary Romance



“Playing House is relatable, heartwarming, and oh so sexy. I zoomed through this thoughtful and
joyful story about two people finding themselves and each other.” 
—Jasmine Guillory, New York Times bestselling author of The Wedding Date and The Proposal

Romance blossoms between two city planners posing as newlyweds in this first in a bright new series 
by acclaimed author Ruby Lang

The last thing Oliver Huang expects to see on the historic Mount Morris home tour is longtime 
acquaintance Fay Liu bustling up and kissing him hello. He’s happy to playact being a couple to save 
her from a pushy admirer. Fay’s beautiful, successful and smart, and if he’s being honest, 
Oliver has always had a bit of a thing for her.

Maybe more than a bit.

Geeking out over architectural details is Oliver and Fay’s shared love language, 
and soon they’re touring pricey real estate across Upper Manhattan as the terribly faux but terribly 
charming couple Darling and Olly.

For the first time since being laid off from the job he loved, Oliver has something to look forward to. 
And for the first time since her divorce, Fay’s having fun.

Somewhere between the light-filled living rooms and spacious closets they’ve explored, 
this faux relationship just may have sparked some very real feelings. 
For Oliver and Fay, home truly is where their hearts are.

“Oh, so this is the boyfriend you were talking about,” Clompy Man said.
Fay tipped her head back, her glossy hair catching the light, and gazed up at Oliver adoringly. “Oliver, Brent here was offering to take me to the rest of the stops on the tour. But I said I was waiting for you to ar­rive, because I know you’re such an architecture hound that you wouldn’t want to miss it.”
“I’m sorry I was late. I got held up at the, uh, boxing gym.”
To her credit, she did not roll her eyes. Boxing gym. Oliver had never been inside a boxing gym if that’s what they were called. Fay said, “That’s all right, honey. I know how much you enjoy sparring. You’re so strong and quick on your feet.”
She gave his biceps a squeeze, two, as if the first weren’t enough, and he almost laughed aloud.
She felt it, too. Even if their improvised dialog was stilted and terrible—or maybe because it was—they shared genuinely amused grins.
Brent the Clomper didn’t appear quite as delighted with their acting skills.
