Book Summary

Oh. My. God. Carrie Morgan can’t escape her cheating ex fiancé. She goes on her Hawaiian honeymoon fantasy vacation to prove she’s over him—but he’s there with his mistress in tow. Good thing Carrie’s annoyingly over-protective friend Blake came with her. How’s she going to prove to her ex she’s over him? Easy. One… Two… Three… She grabs Blake and kisses him.

Blake Harris isn’t about to let anyone take advantage of his heartbroken friend Carrie. And that includes himself, even if she’s sexy as sin in that bikini. Then she kisses him—and he’s on fire. Damage done, but he can back off. Except he sees that broken look in Carrie’s eyes. No. Hell no. New plan. He intends to show her ex just what he’s thrown away.

The kisses? For show. The heat? Part of the performance. The private practice sessions? Uh-oh. Those are starting to feel a bit too real…

My Thoughts

*ARC provided by Publisher*

Thanks to the advice of her brother’s best friend, recently dumped bride-to-be Carrie Morgan decides to take herself on her honeymoon and live out the fantasy she’d envisioned for herself—with Blake Harris, her brother’s friend, along for the ride. And though Carrie hadn’t actually thought about entering into a fake relationship with Blake, she deny she’s enjoying the outcome of being able to stick it to her ex and his mistress who also happened to want to go on her fantasy honeymoon trip.

Fake Engagement Real Temptation is a fun, fast-paced, well-written romance that completely pulled me in and swept me away into the story. I loved both Carrie and Blake right from the start, and I enjoyed the unexpected turns the story took. Not to mention the hot as hell sex scenes and emotional fallout of Carrie and Blake’s ruse.

With explosive chemistry and a heap of fantastic characterization, Fake Engagement Real Temptation is one Brazen book not to be missed. It’s fun, sexy, entertaining, and a book I absolutely devoured from the very first page.

Excellent Read!
