Fake Fiancée by Ilsa Madden-Mills



Goodread Review




They say nothing compares to your first kiss,
But our first kiss was orchestrated for an audience.
Our second kiss…that one was
REAL
.
He cradled my face like he was terrified he’d f*ck it up.
He stared into my eyes until the air buzzed.
Soft and slow, full of sighs and little laughs,
He inhaled me like I was the finest Belgian chocolate,
And he'd never get another piece.
A nip of his teeth, his hand at my waist...
And I was lost.
I forgot he was paying me to be his fake fiancée.
I forgot we weren’t
REAL
.
Our
kiss
was pure magic, and before you laugh and say those kinds of kisses don’t exist…
Then you’ve never touched lips with Max Kent, the hottest quarterback in college history.
Get ready for breathtaking kisses, dreamy football players, a heroine who yearns for the guy she can't have, and a hero who will do anything for the girl he loves...







Guess which one I am? And no I’m not at the back of the picture I am smack bang in the middle of it all.
Sunny needs to get out of Snowden, North Carolina asap, she nearly makes it but trying to avoid an animal on the road she swerves and lands in the lake. A mysterious man saves her but she can’t stick around otherwise the police will take her back to Snowden.
3 years later…
The mysterious saviour of that night Max Kent star quarterback and Sunny are now neighbours. She knows who he is but doesn’t say anything, Max recognises her he just doesn’t know where from. It is the start of the new semester and Max just wants to concentrate on his career as a quarterback. He doesn’t want any drama to what happened last year with his ex Bianca and his teammate Felix.
Sunny is also trying to get through the end of university but also had a bad split from Bart when she caught him with his hands down another girls pants. Nice.
They make an arrangement for the day that they will be fake date for the day but somehow it turns into more and also starts to get out of hand. Lies accumulate and someone is bound to slip up at some point.
It’s an easy quick and fun read but it just didn’t work for me. I am tickled pink that everyone loves the book although I did love the beginning of the book the more I read the less interested I became in it. I can’t even say why really and I’ve been thinking why this is the case since I finished reading it yesterday. What is completely on me is that I thought a Fake Fiancée sounded cool and was intrigued and it is by the talented Ilsa Madden-Mills. But the fake fiancée is a well-used plot sometimes it works sometimes it doesn’t.
I truly wish that I could have liked this book more. I loved the English books. This is just me so please read the book and find out for yourselves if you like it or not.
