Goodreads Synopsis:

TOP TIP: Don't put out an online ad offering your services as a fake date. Someone will take you up on it.

And it won't just be for one night.

And that, ladies and gentlemen, is how I ended up being Mason Jackson's fake girlfriend.
He didn't even want me to be. No--his sister was solely responsible for me being his date for his ten-year high school reunion.

Now, she's responsible for telling his parents our relationship is real.
We have no choice. We have to act like this isn't all a mistake, like it's not all fake, like we're totally, completely, utterly, head-over-heels in love with each other.

Simple, right?


Book Review:
Pre-reading Thoughts:

I am a huge fan of Hart’s books. They are always fun to read and whenever I read them, you can definitely catch me laughing out loud or swooning at what I’ve just read. I cannot wait to jump into Hart’s newest release!

Thank you so much to Social Butterfly PR for providing me with a copy of this book! Just a quick disclaimer for those reading this review, I have received this book for free.

Writing Thoughts:

The writing in this book carried the humour perfectly. I found myself laughing almost constantly because the banter was witty, or the jokes were sharp. I loved the writing style in this book and thought that Hart has found her true writing style! I really enjoyed the duel perspective element in this book because it showed us the two sides of the story.  I also think that without the alternating perspectives this book would not be the same.

Plot Thoughts:

The plot was fun and interesting. I thought that the whole idea was unique and played with some interesting tropes. I found myself wanting to know what happens next and refusing to put the book down. The plot was light hearted and easy to read. It wasn’t too complex and didn’t have me thinking when the romance was going to happen. 

Character Thoughts:

My favourite character has to be the main characters cat. I loved that he sat on people’s heads and whenever he was mentioned, his character definitely showed. Whilst the characters weren’t necessarily fleshed out and complex, they were fun to read about. Their quirks were interesting and made them accessible.

Final Thoughts:

Overall, I loved reading this book. It was the perfect book to read after Illuminae which took so much out of me. This book stopped the book slump that was slowly worming its way into my life. The writing was full of humour and banter which made my day. The plot was fun and unique. The characters were memorable. This was one book that I couldn’t put down. Please note that this book is not appropriate for younger readers Thank you so much to Social Butterfly PRfor providing me with a copy of this book. 

Yours in Reading,
