Although I have read a number of similar Lesfic stories recently, yet again Jae rises above the rest, to captivate me from start to finish. I love stories that have two very different characters, in this case, an Ice Queen and Actress thrown together in a fake relationship, where they then fall in love. We all know it's going to happen, but it is the unravelling of the story that Jae has us inthralled by.
Claire is a psychologist so wound up that something has to snap and it does. Her relationship does, five minutes before guests are about to arrive for her engagement party to Abbey. Abbey informs her that she can't marry her and " do" this relationship any more. She is devastated as she never saw it coming. How does it look if a specialist in relationships, (she has just written a book about it) that her seven year relationship has just gone belly up. Her book deal depends on her being engaged.
Enter Lana, a struggling actress, her agent hires to play the part of loving fiancé. Can these two fool family, friends and more importantly her potential publisher, that they are madly in love. Will they be able to survive living together as they are so different? Sit back and be thoroughly entertained as we watch these two stumble their way to some home truths and possibly true love. A funny, thought provoking story that had me abandoning my every day life as I sped through this intriguing story. Loved it.⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
This is definitely my new favourite book by Jae. I literally felt better after reading this book as it is such a heart warming story.
I’ve been excited about this storyline from the minute I read the synopsis a few months ago and I could’t wait to get started. Psychologist, Claire has just had her perfect world turned upside down when her fiancé ended their relationship minutes before their engagement party. Claire picks her self up but the news of her break up could ruin any chance at publishing her self help guide on relationships if she’s no longer in one. She needs to be in a relationship to sell that she knows whats she’s talking about. Enter Lana, an out of work actress looking to land her next gig. She’s nothing like Claire expected but sometimes it's what you're not looking for that turns out to be what you can’t live with out.
I absolutely adored this book and the characters from the moment I started to read it. Claire was all snobbish and uptight and Lana just unravels her neat little life and its fun to watch. I loved that Jae made Lana more full figured and with heaps of confidence. It made her extremely sexy to the me and she’s definitely a woman I can picture in real life. I also want to mention that this book has the sexiest sex scenes I’ve ever read from Jae… I mean they were HOT!
I really enjoyed the secondary characters as well and there might be storyline lurking from Claire's little sister, Steph. When I finished the book I knew she had her own story to tell as did Claire’s ex-fiance, Abby. Quite a few characters and plots that could be written out of this story and that always excites me because I love characters from past books popping up like in this book... Jill and Crash from Just Physical and Laleh and Hope from Heart Trouble pop by and there is also mention of Grace and Lauren from Damage Control… all of these little cameo roles just make my heart happy and satisfy my happy ever after theory about Jaes characters.
Another great storyline from Jae that I can’t wait to start reading all over again.
Jae shows once again why her stories are so enjoyable. Can Claire and Lana create the perfect couple...even if it is fake? The characters, both main and support are wonderful. They are likeable, fun, frustrating and a little OCD but most of all they are realistic! I enjoyed reading the trial and errors of Claire's efforts to fake a relationship to only then get caught in her own net when feelings develop and only confuse and complcates things in her ordered world. A humourous look at life and love with the added bonus of fun on the side. Definietly worth a read. I received an arc in exchange for an honest review.
