My Review

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for providing me with a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. 

The title and the cover originally pulled me in and then I read the synopsis and I knew it was going to be a book I would enjoy. 

I struggled to get into it at first because I wasn’t really liking the characters. Jada comes off as a ditzy spoiled rich girl who doesn’t care about anything but fashion and looking pretty and I wasn’t getting on with Donovan’s personality. That being said the further into the book I got the more and more I started liking the characters and the more you find out there is more to them then what meets the eye. 

This is a fake dating, opposites attract romance. I would say there is a little bit of instalust happening as well, but I didn’t mind that. With fake dating I always expect something to happen that will break the couple up in the end for them to inevitably get back together a few pages later. There was a lot of things happening that I was sure was going to break them up, but they always stuck together, and I loved that which is why when the breakup still happened it came out of the blue and really didn’t make sense to me. 

This book was funny with a little bit of steam thrown in as well as dealing with some hard topics. I hope the author plans to write more books because I would love to get a book for Donovan’s other 2 friends as well as Jada’s friend.

  1. Wonderful review, Misty. Thanks for mentioning it took a bit to like the main characters, so I will keep going. I am not a fan of spoiled and rich either, unless they become real to me.
