3.5 stars, methinkes
➦Two best friends fall in love while “faking an engagement.” This plot is nothing I haven’t seen before. It was an enjoyable but rather predictable read, nothing wrong with that. 🙂
➦Faking an engagement so that your family can sell their business to some sexist asshole – I didn’t really get it. (And yes, yes, I know it’s fiction… but my stupid brain just couldn’t get past this lol!) Which century do we live in? Money is money, I’m sure going to such extremes to sell a very successful business wasn’t necessary. And the fact that the hero was ashamed of who he was seemed a bit pathetic. (even though I found absolutely nothing wrong with how he made his living)
➦What made the book kind of unique and enjoyable was the male POV. And I big big fan of Lauren Blakely’s male POV romcoms 🙂 The writing style is entertaining and Lauren definitely knows how to write hot sex scenes. The anticipation was hot, I really loved that part.
➦The ending was a big cuteness overload. It was a bit like reading a fairy tale where everyone got what they wanted. And I hate them all! lol
