About the Book:

Wanted:
One (fake) boyfriend
Practically perfect in every way

Luc O’Donnell is tangentially–and reluctantly–famous. His rock star parents split when he was young, and the father he’s never met spent the next twenty years cruising in and out of rehab. Now that his dad’s making a comeback, Luc’s back in the public eye, and one compromising photo is enough to ruin everything.

To clean up his image, Luc has to find a nice, normal relationship…and Oliver Blackwood is as nice and normal as they come. He’s a barrister, an ethical vegetarian, and he’s never inspired a moment of scandal in his life. In other words: perfect boyfriend material. Unfortunately apart from being gay, single, and really, really in need of a date for a big event, Luc and Oliver have nothing in common. So they strike a deal to be publicity-friendly (fake) boyfriends until the dust has settled. Then they can go their separate ways and pretend it never happened.

But the thing about fake-dating is that it can feel a lot like real-dating. And that’s when you get used to someone. Start falling for them. Don’t ever want to let them go.

My Review:

Awwww…. I loved this book!

Luc is a hot mess!  Aren’t they the best kind of people to fall in love with?  I’m pretty sure I was somewhat of a hot mess in my youth as well, so Luc wove his way into my heart pretty easily.  Self-sabotage at it’s finest.

And Oliver.  He’s everything that I wanted in a love interest when I got older.  Serious, stable, confident and smart.  And throw in hotness as the cherry on top!

A match that seems like it would never work but it actually quite perfect.  The snarky comments from Luc throughout the book made me giggle and Oliver’s smart, no-nonsense responses were perfect.

There were a couple of slow spots for me which made this more of a 4 than a 5 star, but overall, its well worth the read if you are a romantic at heart!

Thank you to #SourcebooksCasablance and #Edelweiss for making this book available for review. All opinions expressed are my own.
