Lucas Thorn wasn’t born a cheater. All it took was a single moment—say, a certain disastrous incident on the night before his wedding—and boom. Reputation destroyed forever and always. So now he owns it. He has a lady friend for every night of the week (except Sundays—God’s day and all), and his rules are simple: No commitments. No exceptions.

But a certain smart-mouthed, strawberry blonde vixen is about to blow that all to hell.

Avery Black has never forgiven Lucas for cheating on her sister. And suddenly being forced to work with him is pretty much a nightmare on steroids. Of course, it does afford her the opportunity to make his life as difficult as possible. But no good revenge scheme comes without payback. Because he didn’t become the Lucas Thorn without learning a few things about women.

Now Avery’s lust for vengeance has turned into, well, lust. And if Lucas stops cheating, it’s definitely not because he’s falling in love…

Maria’s Review

➦Let me just start by saying that if you can get over the fact that this hero is a man whore who has sex with a different girl every day of the week except Sundays then you might actually end up loving this book just like I did. Because the real point is trying to understand what made him this way and believe me – you will.➦At one point in time, say, in high school, Lucas has found himself in a relationship with a girl. And then the years went by and he found himself being engaged to her. Well, because it’s sort of what was expected. Change is hard, people. The struggle is real.
➦But then, say, there’s his fiance’s little sister. Who he’s been hanging out with. And may be became best friends with. And eventually fell in love with. So what do you do when you’re marrying the wrong sister?

➦Well, in case of Lucas Thorn here, you fuck up royally. And then start a life of solitude. Well, not quite. A girl for every day of the week, remember?

➦Until ONE DAY! You guessed it! The little sister comes back! And it just happens so that she gets a job working for Lucas Thorn. And then may be she can make him change his ways. Perhaps, by teaming up these two can finally repair the friendship between their families. May be by pretending they are in a relationship?

➦This novel is a hard one to review. I really want people to read it but I’m afraid to give too much away! But I just have to say that this book gave me the feels and made me rofl simultaneously. Rachel Van Dyken describes the funniest situations and you can’t help but laugh.

➦There’s a little bit of everything in this book. Fake relationship/engagement trope – check! Enemies to lovers – check! Loved you since childhood – check! All of my favorites, by the way. And, of course, a perfect blend of steam, humor and angst. Recommended if, as stated before, you can deal with a fictional manwhore. 🙂
