Jill Michaels prides herself on one thing: being independent. That is until her daughter gets into an elite school, and she needs money more than ever. It seems her fairy godmother—aka her deceased Grammy—has granted that wish in the form of one-fourth of her estate. The only catch? She must be married by her thirtieth birthday. In two months.
Aaron Collins is fresh out of the army and back in town to help his father’s failing business. When he runs into Jill at a hotel where she’s attending a single’s mixer, he makes sure she doesn’t make it past his room and into another guy’s arms. When he hears about her predicament, he has a plan: they’ll get married and keep it a secret. And maybe have a little sexy fun until he leave towns for his new job.
But letting go of the woman of his dreams may be harder than Aaron could have ever imagined.
I’m a fan of Jennifer Blackwood’s The Rule Breakers series, so when I saw that Falling for the Fake Fiance was available on NetGalley, I had to request it. I’m so happy I did!
Fake relationships are one of my favorite relationship tropes. There’s something about a fake relationship turning into a real one. I think it’s because there’s always the slow building romance from the initial instant attraction. It was especially fun in Falling for the Fake Fiance because Aaron had always had the hots for Jill. It almost gave it a second chance romance feel. Jill and Aaron’s prior teenage friendship made their instant attraction and love feel more likely to be possible. It made my buy into their current feelings for each other.
I was surprised at how thorough a story Falling for the Fake Fiance was in just 129 pages. I still would have loved it to have been a little longer, though. It would have been fun for Jill and Aaron’s romance to have had more time to build and develop. There were so many cute moments, but I know there could have been more!
Falling for the Fake Fiance was a short and sweet romance filled with amazing sexual chemistry. It’s the perfect book if you’re looking for a light, quick romantic summer read.
