Angelle Prejean is in a pickle. Her family is expecting her to come home with a fiancé—a fiancé who doesn't exist. Well, he exists, but he definitely has no idea Angelle told her mama they were engaged. Tattooed, muscled, and hotter than sin, Cane can reduce Angelle to a hot mess with one look—and leave her heart a mess if she falls for him. But when she ends up winning him at a charity bachelor auction, she knows just how to solve her fiancé problem.
Cane Robicheaux is no one's prince. He doesn't do relationships and he doesn't fall in love. When sweet, sultry-voiced Angelle propositions him, he hopes their little fiancé game can finally get her out of his head. He doesn't expect her to break through all his barriers. But even as Angelle burrows deeper into his heart, he knows once their seven days are up, so is their ruse.
Each book in the Love & Games series is STANDALONE:
* Taste the Heat
* Seven Day Fiance
* Accidentally Married on Purpose
Cute story, sweet ending
Fake fiancé trope aside this is a really cute book that tugs at the reader's emotions. You can feel for both of the main characters and it is a fun ride to get to the HEA. The precipitating event/relationship crisis portion of the book really doesn't play out well...just feels too artificial and certainly not how the established characters would act/react but the ending is so sweet it makes up for it.
Seven Day Fiance by the Bookmark Blog
I was excited to read this one because of who the author is! Rachel Harris has written two YA novels about time travel. My Super Sweet Sixteenth Century and A Tale of Two Centuries. I love both books, so I couldn’t wait to dig in and see how she would do with adult romance.
The answer? Excellent!
I loved Angelle and Cane from the moment I started reading about them. They were fun characters and the type that you just know are going to end up together, because, well, they are MADE for each other. Plus, there was this amazing learning curve to the book. See, it is set in Louisiana, and a large part of it is country Louisiana. I didn’t realize there was so much I didn’t know about the area, but it was so great the way that Rachel Harris was able to incorporate all that into this story. Seriously, this was a great, fun, romantic read and I really enjoyed it.
I seem to be on a bit of a roll about books where the woman has been taken care of and is trying to break out of that mold. Angelle was such a strong character and I loved so much about her.
Overall, a fun, romantic read!
