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.
What if I promise never to make you cry?
Contemporary romance has been my go-to genre for so long. So when I saw an opening for a blog tour this book, you betcha I clicked the button faster than you could say wassup.
Anyway, I adored this book so much. It was a sweet and humorous read. What really sold me with this book is how the characters were built, they were well developed.
Kate is a driven and strong woman. She has the characteristics that could attract men and James is no exception. James, on the other hand, was very caring and considerate, not to mention charming. It was fun to follow their relationship grow and develop.
The other supporting characters were a hilarious addition to this unconventional set-up, especially whenever they're all together.
Overall, I really liked this book. I think this is a great book. It doesn't have the most original plot line but it was written in a fun and unique way that rivals the other. But there's just one character that I really don't understand. This one's humorous with a touch of other emotions blended in.
Did I like the ending? Yes.
Is it a page turner? Yes, very much so.
Will I re-read it again? Of course.
