Book Description:

What’s wrong with a little bit of faking it?

After Josie got dumped by her ex through a note on the fridge, she hasn’t let herself get close to anyone. But when she meets Cameron at a Halloween party, who turns up in the same Ghostbusters costume as her, it’s virtually impossible to stay away.

Cameron, a curly haired video-games designer with dazzling blue eyes, the sexiest dimples and the same encyclopaedic knowledge of movies as Josie, seems too good to be true.

And maybe he is… Because there’s one teeny tiny problem as Josie falls madly in love. Cameron has no idea that Josie lives at home with her ex-porn star parents and their dog Dave, or about the minor detail that she works for their sex toy empire. After her ex broke up with her because of the family business, Josie decides to tell a little white lie.

But it’s just a matter of time until the truth comes out. When it does, will Cameron end things, leaving Josie with only Dave the dog for company? And what if she’s not the only one who’s keeping secrets?

So funny it should come with a warning! Don’t read while eating/drinking/in public – embarrassment will ensue. The perfect romantic comedy for anyone whose love life is more extinct than dinosaurs, and for fans of Sophie Kinsella, Lindsey Kelk and Emily Henry.

My review

This was a big ball of fun.  Josie and Cameron meet at her brother’s Halloween party and when he mistakes her for the caterer, she doesn’t correct him.  Her brother is a soap opera star.  Her parents were porn stars.  And Josie runs the family business selling sex toys and paraphernalia.  She isn’t sure if that is too much to explain.  They hit it off and have lots of great sex (but note the book is not spicy) and start to fall hard except Josie hasn’t cleared up their misunderstanding.

Two people that love Ghostbusters as much as they do as the leads in a romance.  Sign me up.  I smiled through the whole book at all the little details from how to market a dildo, the great quirky supporting characters down to Dave the dog, all the misunderstandings that arise and a couple you just can’t help but root for.  I genuinely liked all of the characters.  And this type of story could have hit corny so easily and never did.  I loved the closeness of Josie’s family and how she had so many people in her corner.

I have not read any books by this author before this one and I’m wondering why.  This was great and I can’t wait to read more.  Trust me when I say you’ll love rooting for Josie and Cameron.
