What happens when a fake relationship turns into a real kind of love?
As an audiobook narrator, Clementine Cox has no trouble mastering the voices of space aliens, elven warriors, or even demon-possessed cats. But the moment she tries her hand at an erotic romance, she's stumped. With her deadline looming, she books a week at a secluded cabin to restore her inner muse, telling her loving-but-overbearing family it's a romantic getaway with her not-so-existent new boyfriend to keep them from worrying. She never expects them to invite themselves along to meet the new guy. Now, she has less than twenty-four hours to find a pretend boyfriend in order to save her job and, potentially, her sanity.
Workaholic Jake Donovan isn't interested in a real relationship. After a broken engagement, all he wants to do is focus on keeping his brewpub, the Holy Grale, afloat. But when he finds out his favorite customer is in need of a fake boyfriend, and his business partners insist he take a much overdue vacation, he has no choice but to help Clem out. All he has to do is enjoy the sunshine, play nice with her family, and keep his hands to himself for the week.
But Jake's not prepared to like waking up next to Clem every morning as much as he does. Or to feel so welcome by her quirky family. And as the line between real and fake starts to blur, he realizes one week might never be enough.
Great read, but four stars.
I loved the edge-of-my-seat story that kept me intrigued. It only took me two days to read this book, but I stayed up late at night to read as far as I could, and it was the first thing I did when I woke up the next morning. The author had a very good overall story plot.
As far as the other aspects go, I wouldn’t say it was very well rounded. This is a romance novel, yes. That is what it is. Maybe it’s my mistake by assuming it would be just a touch more of something else. Romance and action or romance and mystery. Something more than one character falls for another and then a bunch of sex and some bumps in the road. I wanted just an extra something that made this story a bit more interesting.
Because of this, in my own opinion, this wasn’t a “favorite” that I would read again. For what it is, it is an exceptionally cute love story with breath taking details that paint vivid pictures in your mind of all the sexy scenes. I loved every moment I spent reading this book. The hero aspect surely had me hooked and drooling over this picture perfect character relationship!
Great book recommended reading
