She was supposed to be his one-night distraction. But their attraction is undeniable.
Introverted Daisy McGregor is used to being a wallflower, but what she lacks in style, she makes up for with an acerbic wit, a passion for life, and a deep devotion to her family. So she’ll suffer through her sister Dahlia’s bachelorette party and accept the cloud of pity for going stag to the wedding.
Out at the pub, sexy bad boy Mason Carlisle is a reluctant wingman tasked with entertaining Daisy while his brother flirts with her oldest sister, Daffodil. When the plan fails and Mason’s true intent is revealed, he feels intense guilt―and a sensual spark of desire for the unlikeliest of women.
Daisy decides to use this unfortunate encounter to her advantage: to make it up to her, Mason will be another kind of wingman, playing the role of her boyfriend and wedding date. Will their ruse unravel completely―or will Mason and Daisy’s undeniable attraction ignite a scorching love affair that knows no rules?

Daisy McGregor, is the youngest of three sisters. Her two older sisters are the beautiful ones, but she is known as "the other one." While attending the bachelorette party for her middle sister, and wishing she was elsewhere, Daisy is shocked when one of the gorgeous Carlisle brothers chats to her and then he actually asks her out... Daisy is totally confused because handsome men like Mason don't ask out girls like her, ever...
"Maybe I missed something here," she said, circling her finger in the space between them. "Or maybe I'm drunker than I thought because this conversation stopped making sense about two minutes ago."
"I asked you out," he said, and she blinked, before laughing.
"Guys like you don't go out with girls like me," she ridiculed.
Mason Carlisle is the town heartthrob, while visiting a local pub, his brother, Spencer, asks him to be his "wingman". Spencer wants to make a move on one of the McGregor sisters and asks him to flirt with the youngest sister as a distraction.
This is a difficult book to review for me. On one hand, I really enjoyed it and loved the concept of the story, yet on the other hand there were a few times throughout the book that comments were made that changed my opinion of certain characters, a bit of a love/hate thing going on throughout the book is the best way to describe it while avoiding spoilers. At times I was uncomfortable with the hero and feel for the heroine.
Overall, I thought it was a good story, and I would like to read more from this author. I always enjoy a dual POV and eventually came to believe that this HEA might just be real.

Daisy McGregor is the youngest of three sisters. Daffodil and Dahlia (Lia) are the cute and pretty one's respectively. Daisy is the smart one. The 'other' one. The sister that fades into the background. At 27 she has qualified as a vet and is working in her dad's practice in South Africa. At 27 she has never had a boyfriend and she's ok with that, except her Sister, Lia, is getting married and Daisy needs a date to keep the nasty comments about her lack of beauty / desirability away.
Mason Carlisle starts out as his brother's wingman but after a night of misunderstandings becomes Daisy's. Daisy crushed on him when she was 14 but Mason was looking to escape an unhappy childhood in a dead end town so he worked hard and left to live a very full life. Now, he's back. He's hot. He's successful. He's lovely but also battle scarred. As a hero he's pretty much got it all going on although at times he can be quite harsh.
Daisy was likeable and I really felt for her at times. I liked watching her shed her 'ugly duckling' persona and be one the bombshell swan that was simmering under the surface.
The bad guys in this book were very shallow. I maybe would have liked a bit more to them- they seemed a tad one dimensional to me.
Overall an enjoyable read with a loyal H/h. Some hot stuff and interesting secondary characters such as the sisters and Spencer. I would read the next book in the series.
It was lovely seeing a South African writer recommended to me by Amazon, it never happens. Though I was quite surprised of the usage of miles instead of the metric system as that is what we actually use. But nonetheless, lovely story.
As an introvert I could totally relate to Daisy and I really liked how she handled Mason. I wasn’t sure how it was going to go and how they would handle judgment but apart from Mason being a bit of a idiot at times and Daisy being difficult to avoid being hurt, I really enjoyed this story.
This book was light and interesting and definitely a contender in the best fake relationship trope.
