Note to self: When your boyfriend dumps you on your thirtieth birthday, it’s probably not the smartest idea to drink so much that you wake up in the same bed as the mysterious hottie wearing the gorgeous suit who you noticed sitting across the bar.
The only silver lining in my obvious lack of judgment is the promise of never seeing Mr. Suit again, not in a city the size of New York.
Or so I thought, until a story I’m working on about the country’s most sought-after and elusive escort lands me in the same café as Mr. Suit. So I do what any self-respecting woman of my age would do in my shoes… Try to ignore him.
But he won’t let me.
Instead, he makes a proposition that leaves me questioning whether I need to have my ears checked. Be his fake girlfriend for a summer of wealth and excess in the Hamptons. In return, he’ll help me win back my boyfriend’s heart.
Juvenile? You bet.
Effective? Could be.
Bad idea? Most likely.
But what do I have to lose?
Apparently, a lot more than I originally bargained for.
Let the games begin...
*** 3 Star Review ***
I am torn with this book. Overall, I liked it. It's a good book. It just didn't feel like the author's usual writing. I was hoping to be over the moon with this one.
I can honestly say that you will smile and chuckle for a decent part of this book. There are scenes in it that I couldn't help but to love, pretty much all of them being the interactions between Evie and her friends. Their friendship is such a big part of this book.
Evie herself. I just wasn't feeling her. She was a bit immature for me. Some of the things she says and assumes were just a bit too naive for me. I never really felt a connection to her or a connection between her and Julian.
The start of this book had a feeling of How to Lose a Guy in Ten Days and Hitched. In a way, a little too much. A few of the beginning scenes were very reminiscent of How to Lose a Guy in Ten Days. I am not sure if I should count that as a positive or negative. That is one of my all-time favorite romcoms.
Overall, this book was a cute read. It wasn't heavy with the emotions and read pretty quickly. Sometimes we all need a book that doesn't take much to read; just a nice, slow burn romance to cleanse our pallets.
