Fake Engagement Real Temptation by Joya Ryan
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Oh. My. God. Carrie Morgan can’t escape her cheating ex fiancé. She goes on her Hawaiian honeymoon fantasy vacation to prove she’s over him—but he’s there with his mistress in tow. Good thing Carrie’s annoyingly over-protective friend Blake came with her. How’s she going to prove to her ex she’s over him? Easy. One… Two… Three… She grabs Blake and kisses him.
Blake Harris isn’t about to let anyone take advantage of his heartbroken friend Carrie. And that includes himself, even if she’s sexy as sin in that bikini. Then she kisses him—and he’s on fire. Damage done, but he can back off. Except he sees that broken look in Carrie’s eyes. No. Hell no. New plan. He intends to show her ex just what he’s thrown away.
The kisses? For show. The heat? Part of the performance. The private practice sessions? Uh-oh. Those are starting to feel a bit too real…
This book was okay for me but I also read another book with the same premise as this one that had almost no sex or profanity and it was a 5 star read. So was that harsh of me? No, because other people will hate that book but like this one. What worked for me in this book was the Hero and what didn't was the antagonist because he was a giant douche canoe. Yep, I called him a douche canoe! He just got on my nerves and I know you're not supposed to like him but I got sick of having him in the book...If I could have chucked my kindle through the wall, I would have.
I was given a copy of this ARC from the publisher on Netgalley for a honest review. All of the above comments are my express opinions and no one else's.
