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.
Fake Fiance is one of those tropes that reel me in on it’s premise of angst driven, will they won’t they fall for each other. Jennifer Blackwood’s newest addition to this trope was everything I expect and more!
In Falling for the Fake Fiance, Blackwood introduces us to Jill Michaels, the sister of Gage Michaels whom we previously met in the first Snowpocalypse novel, Landing the Air Marshal. Now, you don’t have to read Gage’s story in order to read Jill’s. Falling for the Fake Fiance stands up all on it’s own and honestly, I may not have caught on it was even book two in a series had I not read the first novel.
Much like Landing the Air Marshal, Blackwood starts this book off with a bang. Literally. Jill Michaels runs into her childhood friend and neighbor, Aaron during the biggest snowstorm the Carolinas have ever seen. Being from the South, we know that’s probably about 3 inches of snow. :) All kidding aside, it’s an insta-love moment between Jill and Aaron. Normally, I am not a huge fan of insta-love and lust. I need that buildup of emotion to gut my soul. However, Blackwood plays this one off effortlessly by developing the depth of feelings after that initial hit between the sheets and making me fall head over heels for the boy next door.
Falling for the Fake Fiance was a fun, heart warming novel that left my insides all warm and fuzzy. Blackwood continues to deliver great books for readers to fall in love with. I can’t wait to pick up another book from this author.
