Fake boyfriend Rule #1: never fall for your fake girlfriend.
Emma Lovejoy runs Aphrodite’s Boutique, a store that specializes in all things love-related. A store that she adores with all her heart, and which is at risk of being shut down and replaced with a condo development.
Playboy Travis Hamilton was raised by his feisty, well-meaning grandmother, who is determined to help her grandson find The One. But when most women he meets tend to be puck bunnies or women only interested in his hockey-player income — and let’s not forget the nutcase of an ex-girlfriend — why bother?
Travis realizes only a fake girlfriend will deter his grandmother’s matchmaking scheme. Too bad the one woman who can help him is the sexy redhead who wants to assist him as much as she wants her eyeballs to be dunked in hot sauce and barbecued. To convince her, he promises to help her with her own dilemma. But sometimes fire and ice really do mix. Now Travis has to decide if love is in the air — and if together he and Emma make something hotter. Something stronger. Something real.
I’m really enjoying this series…
♥The characters. Emma and Travis were great characters, but I also really enjoyed the secondary characters, especially Travis grandmother and her 2 feisty friends.
♥ The writing. This has been a hit and miss for me, I liked it on the first book, Decidedly Off Limits, but found it a bit too much on Decidedly With Baby. Here I liked it again. The style is still the same, and it’s fun and light. The only problem is that it doesn’t allow for a big distinction on the character’s voices.
♥ The plot. I love fake relationships turned real, so yeah, I really liked the plot.
♦ I found that the relationship developed a bit too fast. It went from fake to forever very very fast.
♦ The plot of the 2 characters knowing each other in their teens was inconsequential, and didn’t bring anything to the story.
