The USA Today bestselling author of The Worst Best Man is back with another hilarious rom-com about two strangers who get trapped in a lie and have to fake date their way out of it…
Just weeks away from ditching DC for greener pastures, Solange Pereira is roped into helping her wedding planner cousin on a random couple’s big day. It’s an easy gig… until she stumbles upon a situation that convinces her the pair isn’t meant to be. What’s a true-blue romantic to do? Crash the wedding, of course. And ensure the unsuspecting groom doesn’t make the biggest mistake of his life.
Dean Chapman had his future all mapped out. He was about to check off “start a family” and on track to “make partner” when his modern day marriage of convenience went up in smoke. Then he learns he might not land an assignment that could be his ticket to a promotion unless he has a significant other and, in a moment of panic, Dean claims to be in love with the woman who crashed his wedding. Oops.
Now Dean has a whole new item on his to-do list: beg Solange to be his pretend girlfriend. Solange feels a tiny bit bad about ruining Dean’s wedding, so she agrees to play along. Yet as they fake-date their way around town, what started as a performance for Dean’s colleagues turns into a connection that neither he nor Solange can deny. Their entire romance is a sham… there’s no way these polar opposites could fall in love for real, right?
Drunk Overview: Solange overhears a bride confessing her love to not-the-groom and decides she needs to crash the wedding. Which turns into her pretending to be the groom’s, Dean, girlfriend to help impress a possible recruit to his law firm.
- Dean is the kind of organized that doesnt feel real
- Also this is going to feel like it comes out of nowhere, but the random sex party in the middle of the book felt useless
- There were no consequences and nothing really happened…
- At the point where you have something like that, there should be an impact of some kind…
- Regardless, the plot was a fairly basic “fake dating” which of course leads to them falling in love.
- I did love the look into their backgrounds and how that afftmected their current lives.
- I enjoyed the varied personalities and how they matched well.
- Sidenote, Molly, who was a minor character deserved a character more than “apologetic wife” which kind of fits into me enjoying well rounded villains…
- I think this is a book where they could have done more with the location. Especially for lawyers…. dc is a surprisingly big llace considering the square mileage.
- I keep expecting to have more opinions…
- But I think that covers it…
- This is the ideal beach read.
