I’m a sucker for fake wife/fiancée stories, so they’re always a good bet when I’m trying out a new-to-me author.  This was a touching fake fiancée story with a huge dose of intsta-romance and I really enjoyed it immensely. 

There are a lot of things that could have been added to this story that would have bogged it down.  The author was very smart to keep certain things on a more peripheral level.  Such as the paparazzi aspect of being a local “celebrity” …it’s touched upon but isn’t allowed to overwhelm the story. 

The fact that Corbin is the very good-looking heir to a prominent and rich family led me to believe he would be a bit of a smug jerk.  Instead, he is a very sympathetic hero.  There is so much he has put up with and made concessions for throughout his life.  While he’s not happy about the way so many things in his life have panned out, he’s not exactly bitter either.  And he’s definitely a wonderful friend to those he trusts.

If you are ever having just a terrible day and think it’s the worst day ever, reading the beginning of this book may change your mind.  Teagan is truly having the worst day ever when this book starts.  The fact that she doesn’t have more issues is really a miracle after what she’s been through.  Not just that day, but in life in general.  I really appreciated that she was able to see, when everything came to a head between her and Corbin, that she really could trust him.  The author took a different angle on this than you usually read and Teagan didn’t need to be hit upside the head to know what the truth of their relationship was.

I’ve really been having a great time with some new-to-me authors lately.  Many of them, like Stacey Lynn, have a bit of a back library for me to go through, too.  Now to find the time to read all the books!
