Conjuring three fake dates to attend a wedding, no problem. Surviving the experience unbroken…
Thanks to a drunken boast about my relationship status, this ugly duckling needs to find three people to fake date in time for my best friend's celebrity wedding. One trip to the office later, and I have my recruits:
Leo – PA extraordinaire, friend, & fashion guru. How was I supposed to know he has a crush on me?
Elodie – My new intern. The dreamer. Also, prospective crazy cat lady. She made a mistake once, now she's determined to prove her screenwriting mettle.
And Jet – The repair man. The wild card. The enigma who makes my heart boom, boom, boom.
We each of us have our own reasons for playing along, some more obvious than others. Now all we have to do is make our polyamorous quadouple convincing. Heartache is not on the agenda. After all, none of it's supposed to be real…

and the novella SCREW DRIVER
Alfie makes one little drunken comment that changes up his life in a four way with Elodie, Jet and Leo.
Rules are so made to be broken.
Alfie’s fake or real relationship(s)
Alfie’s drunken “confession” that he was in a 4-way relationship and would need a plus 3 for a wedding he was asked to usher leads to Alfie asking 2 strangers and his assistant to be his fake lovers. That is what got me to buy this book!! The story is as complicated as you would expect, but the romantic developments soon reveal even more complication. When the date arrives, Leo and Ellie arrive together, while Jet accompanies Alfie. When Jet disappears while Alfie is busy, a surprise revelation sends shock waves through Alfie and his relationship with Jet. Imploding is the best description for the whole fake/real relationship. The resolution/conclusion did surprise me, but it was plausible and satisfying. A long book that will be missed for a few days… Very interesting book.
Problems happen when you say things drunk
Allie gets drunk and says he’s in a relationship but now he needs three dates for his best friends wedding. No problem according to him but it makes for a great time to read about! This was a wonderful storyline and the characters were perfect as they pull you into this great story. I voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Reader Copy of this book.
