This marriage is strictly business... until the temptation gets way too real.
Corbin: I loved my grandma, but I don’t need her money. All I care about is keeping the house—the only place that’s ever felt like home. That, and screwing over my dad, who wants to turn the property into a mall. There’s only one catch: To receive my inheritance, I have to get married within six months. Me, the guy who’s never dated a girl for more than six minutes. Now I need to find a woman I can trust. So when I’m rear-ended by a Prius, I figure it’s a sign that I’m supposed to meet gorgeous, down-to-earth Teagan Monroe.
Teagan: First I lose my job. Then I come home and find out—in the most graphic way possible . . . yeah, that way—that my boyfriend is a cheating jerk. And then I speed off and nearly kill Portland’s sexiest bachelor. Corbin Lane should be pissed. Instead, he offers me more money than I’ve ever seen in my life to marry him and live together in a mansion for two years. No sex. No feelings. Just cash—enough to make all my dreams come true. Then we go and break all our rules . . . and I realize I’m falling in love with my fake fiancé.
Fake Wife is a quick, fun and slow burn read that keep a smile on your face and your eyes glued to your kindle. Plus, don’t we all enjoy a fake relationship where they eventually fall for each other? I know I do.
Teagan, bless her heart, is having an absolute miserable day that only tops off when she rear-ends Corbin, a well known business and ladies man. She expects to trade insurance information and move on but what she gets instead is a proposal of a lifetime. One that take up two years of her life but she will ultimately benefit from it. She agrees to this fake marriage and thus begins the “business only” part of the relationship. Both Teagan and Corbin continue to tell themselves that they will keep it strictly business but it’s clear how dynamic their chemistry is and it’s inevitable that they will cross the line.
I think what I like the most about this book is both Teagan and Corbin end up following their dreams. Well, and the fact that Corbin is just delicious when he talks. Watching his struggle with his feelings for Teagan and how much he wanted her was seriously fun.
“You want respect? The way you look in the fucking dress tonight is making me think this agreement is a very bad idea. Trust me, Teagan, I’m thinking anything other than cordial though right now and you’re testing my control.”
If you are looking for some good laughs and a slow burn, fake to true love romance, then this is the book for you!
