"Delightfully charming!! Sharp, witty banter and the sweet, slow burn of friends becoming more...this is everything I love about romance!!" - Rachel Harris, NY Times Bestselling Author
As a Firefighter, Kent Wakefield has been burned before, and not just by fire. So when Casey Bradford, his best friend's off-limits, gorgeous little sister, asks him to be her fake boyfriend, he flat out refuses. He doesn't do relationships, real or otherwise. But when his well-meaning, marriage-pushing mother corners him about his cousin's wedding, he panics and tells her he has a date.
After being left at the altar, Casey is out of options. She needs a boyfriend ASAP or she can kiss her dreams good-bye. Who better than her brother's emotionally-unavailable best friend, Kent. She may have nursed a childhood crush, but this arrangement will be purely platonic...that is until he kisses her and suddenly it gets a lot harder to remember it's all pretend.
Each book in the Fire and Sparks series is STANDALONE.
* Wedding Date Rescue
* The Firefighter's Perfect Plan
Friends to lovers is one of my favorite kinds of stories. I especially love when it's mixed with a fake relationship.
Kent hasn't had a relationship since his last girlfriend left him because he was injured in a fire. He's happy with the way things are, if only his family would stop trying to set him up with dates all the time. Casey runs a matchmaking business so when her fiancee leaves her at the alter, her business starts to falter and her investors are concerned. One suggests a fake relationship to build confidence back up for the investors and potential clients go elsewhere. Kent and Casey have been friends for their entire lives. Who better to fake a relationship with than your friend who also isn't looking for a relationship?
The lifelong friendship between Kent and Casey led to the best banter. These two know each other so well but the chemistry they have once they start fake dating was off the charts. This was an incredibly sweet and quick story to read. I loved all of the side characters that were introduced and can't wait to see how Lincoln and Josie's story plays out.

Sweet and fun
Sweet and fun fake relationship / friends-to-lovers story! Kent and Casey are the perfect couple, even if they didn't realize themselves. They've known each other their entire lives, but as the little sister of his best friend, she has always been off limits to him. But with Casey's matchmaking business in danger of closing its doors after her failed relationship, and Kent's ex attending his cousin's wedding, they are both in need of a significant other. They may be fake dating, but they both have more than friendly feelings for each other they try to fight. While somewhat short in length, I loved the way their relationship evolved as they both discover the ways they've both been there for each other as only someone in love could be. Looking forward to the next book!
I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book. I was not compensated for this review, all conclusions are my own.
This is a wonderful friends to lovers read. Kent and Casey have known each other since babies. They both need each other to fake a relationship but is it more and can they make it work. This was a great read and Sonya Weiss did a great job keeping you interested and know wanting to read what happens with Josie and Lincoln.
