Can pretending to be in love lead to a real forever ever after happiness?
Jayden Sindler is a member of the wedding party for his sister’s wedding and has been warned to bring someone with him to keep the single hunting women at arm’s length. Luck presents itself in the form of Nash Vargas. Invited to accompany Jayden, Nash convinces him to playact as something more believable-boyfriends.
But what happens when acting turns into real affection? And will there be a future after the weekend?
This was such a good book! This is not super long book but what you get was perfect! I can say that I loved Nash and Jayden’s characters. Them together, I could feel how good they are for each other. You get a little bit of angst with this book which is okay because the sweetness you get from these two more then makes up for it. Yes Nash is young and at first you feel like he might not be mature enough to handle a relationship like this. By the end of the book I did not feel like that at all anymore, Nash is so mature for his age and you see that has you progress through this book. The way the author wrote these two characters and this story grabbed me from the start and I could not put it down. I would definitely recommend this book!
This book started off strong and stayed that way right to the end. The characters were enjoyable and the plot moved at a steady pace, keeping me turning pages to find out what would happen next. The sexual tension between the two main characters, and their constant attempts to ignore it, caused some entertaining moments that left me shaking my head at them. Well developed, beautifully written and a perfect mix of irritating tension, witty humor and snarky comments I would recommend it to any who enjoys M/M romance.
First time reading this author and it was quite enjoyable!
Even though I don’t usually read a story with young-ish characters, the synopsis pulled me and I was pleasantly pleased with the story.
It is To Be Continued….. if the author does write more about this couple, I will read it!!!
I thought the plot of the story was cute. Taking someone to a wedding for show. But the idea that they fell in love so quickly not even knowing each other before, was a little too unrealistic, cute, but not realistic.
Nash was abused by his father and needed a lot of self esteem. Jay was trying to help him with that. That made for a great story. I did love how the author gave you a bit of the future for them and has you wondering what happens next for these guys.
Definitely would like to read the next installment.
I enjoyed this more than I should have. I know the story has been done before. I know it was a mess of implausible meeting the improbable – but I really liked both Nash and Jayden.
On the run from an abusive father, nineteen year old Nash agrees to go with his cousin’s friend to his sister’s wedding in Florida. Twenty-six year old Jayden promises not to touch the younger man – but they find themselves wildly attracted to each other.
Part tourist advert for Florida and part toothache inducing romance, this is a happy, easy read. If you like pretty boys in eyeliner and handsome men in tuxedos and you don’t mind a little wedding satin and tule – you’ll probably enjoy this book.
I caught several references to 80s/90s Julia Roberts romances which is about the speed and depth of this story. Enjoy it in the bath with a very large glass of wine.
