Publisher Description

Lambda Literary award winner and national bestselling author Alexandria Bellefleur returns with a steamy sapphic rom-com about a quiet bookseller and a romance novel cover model who agree to a modern-day marriage of convenience...

Tansy Adams’ greatest love is her family’s bookstore, passed down from her late father. But when it comes to actual romance… Tansy can’t get past the first chapter. Tired of her stepfamily’s questions about her love life, Tansy invents Gemma, a fake girlfriend inspired by the stunning cover model on a bestselling book. They’ll never actually meet, so what’s the harm in a little fib? Yet when real-life Gemma crosses Tansy’s path, her white lie nearly implodes.

Gemma van Dalen is a wild child, the outcast of her wealthy family, and now the latest heir to Van Dalen Publishing. But the title comes with one tiny condition: she must be married in order to inherit. When Gemma discovers a beautiful stranger has been pretending to date her for months, she decides to take the charade one step further—and announces their engagement.

Gemma needs a wife to meet the terms of her grandfather’s will and Tansy needs money to save her struggling bookstore. A marriage could be mutually beneficial, if they can fool everyone into thinking it’s a love match. Unexpected sparks fly as Tansy and Gemma play the role of affectionate fiancées, and suddenly the line between convenient arrangement and real feelings begins to blur. But the scheming Van Dalen family won’t give up the company without a fight, and Gemma and Tansy’s newfound happiness might get caught in the fallout…

Loved it

This book brought me to tears but also had me grinning and laughing till I couldn’t breathe. Even though it was a cliche trope(which I absolutely adore), it had so many elements that you could thoroughly relate to in the real world. I loved that this was kind of a mix between a normal romance and young adult fiction. There is just the right amount of spice intertwined with just an amazing plot line. If you’re someone like me who is always looking for a good woman love woman story, then I definitely recommend this one. Can’t wait to read more from this author!!

This book was Fantastic!

Alexandria Bellefleur is a one-click author for me. I fell in love with her writing in the WITS series and she holds true to the elements I love in this new novel! Her writing is witty, heartwarming, and full of swoon. I finished this book so fast and was absolutely elated with it. I love a good fake dating rom-com - even more so a sapphic one! Tansy and Gemma both have their issues and their reasons for why they're fake engaged. Bellefleur does a great job of uncovering those in a relatable manner as the story progresses. I love the dynamic between all the characters in this story -even the evolution of a character I disliked right off the bat.
The secondary characters added a wonderful layer of humor and levity to the story. The T-Swift references were ridiculously on point and I ATE THEM UP! I cannot wait to add this to my shelf when it releases!
