A LITTLE FAKE RELATIONSHIP NEVER HURT ANYONE . . .
Kate Massie has big dreams-they just haven’t worked out. Yet. In the meantime, she spends her days clerking for a judge and her nights fantasizing about her tall, dark, and sexy gym crush. So when she runs into him one night, she’s shocked to realize he was her shy, nerdy junior-prom date. But that isn’t where the surprises end . . .
James Abell needs a date to his sister’s wedding. So when Kate agrees, he’s relieved . . . until one little lie turns their wedding date into a full-blown fake relationship. Only it doesn’t feel fake-not the toe-curling kisses and definitely not the electricity. Neither of them is looking for something real . . . but they just might fall for their own little white lie.
My Rating: 3.5/5
Review: This is a lovely, light and undemanding book that is perfect escapism from the real world and I really enjoyed reading it. The basic premise is nothing new and it is obvious after a short while what the ending will be but neither of these facts detracts from what is a lovely, well-written and, at times, funny story. I’m sure someone once said the path of true love does not run smoothly (or something like that) and those words are so accurate when it comes to Kate and James. Although Kate agrees to be his fake wedding date it becomes clear quite quickly that that may be a problem and there may be more to their pretend relationship than they are willing to admit. Add a domineering mother, lots of family members, a few ex’s and a troubled past for Kate and you have the makings of a fun story that will keep you turning the pages.
Light and undemanding though this was it was also written in such a way that was easy to read and perfect for unwinding with after a hard day. The characters were realistic and believable as were the situations that Kate and James found themselves dealing with as well as the way they handled them.
This is the sort of book that you have to curl up with a big mug of hot chocolate or a glass of wine, white or rose seems to fit best, while you read. So, what are you waiting for………..?
