Genre: Contemporary Romance (fake relationship)
This is a fun little romp and I enjoyed it immensely! I haven't read a book quite like it in ages so I had a lot of fun and quite frankly a lot of smiles while reading it! It's funny, romantic, and an overall blast! Now I know why so many readers rave about Ann Marie Walkers work- she clearly knows how to write a fantastic novel and engage her readers. With that, this book packs the punches and will leave readers feeling extremely satisfied. It's also quite the mix of sub-genres (i.e. it's an opposites attract, enemies to lovers, and fake relationship type novel). So you really get a little bit of everything with it. If you are a reader who hasn't had the chance to read the authors work yet then I think starting with this one is a good idea. It gives you a taste of the authors writing style and sucks you in from page 1. I am now highly anticipating the second book in the series and will certainly be jumping to read it once published.
A bit more about the book
Okay, so as I mentioned above, this book has quite the mix going on. It's an enemies to lovers novel rolled into a fake relationship, and opposites attract type of book. The hero is a billionaire of Grant Corporations and in order to keep said company he needs to marry by his 30th birthday (otherwise everything goes to his overbearing grandmother). In walks the sassy and environmentally friendly heroine. She needs a parcel of land to be saved and needs the arrogant hero to not build on it. All of this brings these two together and a whirlwind romance (even if it is fake) ensues.
There is quite a bit of sex between the two (ya know, frenemies can still boink), but other than that they have nothing in common besides their mutual attraction. I will however mention that the book isn't an erotic fiction- it's not all sex but just enough to see their burning passion in the sheets- so you don't have to worry about every other page being about their sexual endevours. This made me happy as a reader because I am so over erotica.
The only thing with this book that I felt was missing was the fact that there was nothing truly resolved with the hero's grandmother. The author made it a huge point in the story about the grandmother wanting the company in her name and stopping at nothing to make their fake relationship known, but we don't see this resolved at all. I think if we had it would have been the perfect 5 star read for me.
Anyway, if your looking for a fun book to get lost in I would suggest giving this one a go. I truly enjoyed every minute of it and had life not been in the way I would have read it from start to finish in one sitting.
