Hey lovely readers!
Today’s post is a book review of Fake Fiancée by Ilsa Madden-Mills! This book just checked all the boxes for me!
“Fake engaged to the hottest quarterback in the country? SCORE.
They say nothing compares to your first kiss, But our first kiss was orchestrated for an audience. Our second kiss . . . that one was REAL. He cradled my face like he was terrified he’d f*ck it up. He stared into my eyes until the air buzzed.
Soft and slow, full of sighs and little laughs, He inhaled me like I was the finest Belgian chocolate, And he’d never get another piece. A nip of his teeth, his hand at my waist . . .
And I was lost. I forgot he was paying me to be his fake fiancée. I forgot we weren’t REAL. Our kiss was pure magic, and before you laugh and say those kinds of kisses don’t exist, Then you’ve never touched lips with Max Kent, the hottest quarterback in college history. Three months. Two hearts. One fake engagement.”
Okay guys, this book just made me so happy! I was looking for a fun, light read, and I did get that. But also so much more. So it does have a few cliches. Dude is a hot football start, girl is not fazed by him. Yeah yeah yeah, but no! These two have such amazing chemistry and they are connected in a really interesting way. You kind of know where it’s heading from the beginning, but their relationship is so unique.
Max only cares about football and his image, though he is a very nice person. So he approaches Sunny about faking a relationship to keep the groupies away from him. And Sunny agrees, because well she needs the money. And of course they start to have real feelings for each other and insist on denying them. But here’s why I loved this book. The boy does mess up yes, but when he does the girl accepts responsibility for her part in things! Yes, I know! What?! Yup they have some issues, but there is never a time when they truly give up on each other. They work out their crap together and I freaking love that! So if you’re looking for a new adult romance novel that breaks the mold a bit this is it. Great story, great writing, I’m in love with this one!
Thanks for reading guys! Talk to you soon! <3 Adrianna
