Publisher's Summary

She wants a fake relationship. He needs something real. 

If there’s one thing Rae can’t stand, it’s pity. She’s 40, frazzled, and fed up - so attending an awards ceremony alone while her ex swans about with his new wife? Not an option. To avoid total humiliation, Rae needs a date of her own. And her young, hot-as-hell new best friend is the perfect candidate....

Zach Davis, king of casual hookups, has a secret: the notorious womanizer craves emotional connection, and anonymous encounters leave him feeling hollow. After years of performance, Zach’s desperate to be himself. So why does he agree to play Rae’s fake boyfriend? And why does it feel so easy? 

When the line between pretence and desire blurs, Zach’s forced to face an unexpected truth: there’s nothing phony about his need for Rae. But the jaded divorcée’s been hurt by playboy men before. Can a weekend of faking it prove that Zach’s for real?

Deep and relatable.

This book hit me so deep. And will have you cry and at the same time build hope. Loved it. It can get a little corny at times though, lol.

Let down was the way just took it

Rae was older (cougar), which was all good for me. I just was not satisfied with the way she treated Zach. He was younger and his demisexual position was interesting. I was just waiting the entire read for Rae to make a stand. Yes, she did make a stand in a sense but not the one that I thought would give her true satisfaction. She took too long to accept the relationship between her and Zach. I felt like she was waiting for it all to fall from under her.

Another narration for Rupert and the feminine characters fell flat for me.

Happily Ever After but no closure

They story was good and hot and steamy but if you're the type of reader that needs a closure for lifestyles of the main characters, this book is not for you.

Spoiler

i would have liked to know how things went with the main character (Rae) and her mother after their fallout.

Good

I hope she writes another book that’s tells us all about how the 3 couples lives have changed. This was a fun, sad, and loving series. All the men were sweet and comfortable in their skin.

Wow!

An incredible love story. It’s a story that you won’t be able to put down until the end, and yet, you don’t want it to end!

Enjoyable

I enjoyed everything about this selection. The narrator did a very nice job as well. I'm going to listen to the rest of the series on Audible.

Love the tropes, didn’t quite connect to the characters

I love older woman younger man but this one was a tad on the boring side. I understood that it was because he was Demi and needed to build a bond with his heroine before anything happened between them but after a while I sort of got tired of hearing him say he was Demi every five seconds. Can you imagine what it’s like to read every chapter that a character is othered because they aren’t white? Well this one was no different.
Which is a same because I thought the heroine had such a good job 👏🏿 but there just wasn’t anything super likable about the heroine and the hero was worse than unlikable, he was just unforgettable.

Wanna bet so far is my fave Talia Hibbert book. I wish she’d write more black women heroines with men of color heroes!
