“Jill Michaels prides herself on one thing: being independent. That is until her daughter gets into an elite school, and she needs money more than ever. It seems her fairy godmother—aka her deceased Grammy—has granted that wish in the form of one-fourth of her estate. The only catch? She must be married by her thirtieth birthday. In two months.
Aaron Collins is fresh out of the army and back in town to help his father’s failing business. When he runs into Jill at a hotel where she’s attending a single’s mixer, he makes sure she doesn’t make it past his room and into another guy’s arms. When he hears about her predicament, he has a plan: they’ll get married and keep it a secret. And maybe have a little sexy fun until he leave towns for his new job.
But letting go of the woman of his dreams may be harder than Aaron could have ever imagined.”
Falling for the Fake Fiance is the second book in the Snowpocalypse series by Jennifer Blackwood. Available June 12th!
I will be honest and say I did not read the first book in this series. However, I definitely plan on going back to it now. One of my favorite series is The Rule Breakers Series and now I can add this book to my favorites of Jennifer Blackwood.
I am a huge sucker for fake relationships/marriages and usually stop reading the synopsis as soon as I see that line I need in that category, I am usually always buying it right then and there. With that being said, I have read some really great fake relationships and some really bad ones. This one is definitely in the really great category.
Aaron and Jill’s “relationship” starts off different than most. They knew each other growing up and when they see each other again they reunite in different and more adult ways. So when Jill is in need of a husband in order to get her grandmothers money from the will, the last person she excepts to be marrying is her one time only bedroom partner Aaron.
Growing up Aaron has had strong feelings for Jill. We he comes back many years later, he never expected to have a one night fling with her, or offer to help her with the husband she needs to settle her grandmothers will. Now they are trying to figure out the fine lines between friends, no strings attached lovers and becoming fake married. Also while keeping Jill’s 7 year old daughter out of the loop and not get attached to him.
When no strings attached lovers turn into fake husband and wife, will those lines stay solid or will they all blur together until faking it is the last thing on their minds?
The history between them made them more comfortable around each other and the hilarious banters back and forth made this book highly enjoyable. As a reader you can honestly feel the chemistry and affection. The sex scenes were HOT HOT HOT but the way Aaron acted around Emily, Jill’s daughter was super sweet. Army vet Aaron sounds like an almost perfect man. I had to tell me heart many times to stop swooning.
This book had me laughing only paragraphs in and falling in love with all the characters soon after. Reading the passion and need for Aaron to take care of Jill was beautifully written and the book was wrapped up to the perfect tee at the end.
