You’re ready to leave after a one-night stand, and you’re figuring out how to—shock horror—leave your number and ask him to be your fake boyfriend for your sister’s wedding this weekend.
When he wakes up.
Well, that happened to me. And over coffee and omelets, I found myself a date.
Which was how I ended up arriving at the wedding with a guy I knew nothing about.
I didn’t know his last name, or how we met, or how long we’d been dating. I didn’t know where he grew up, what he’d majored in in college, or how many siblings he had.
I sure as hell didn’t know he was Adam Winters, hotshot hockey player, and not only my father’s favorite player, but my little nephew’s freakin’ idol.
Which means I’m in trouble. Big, big trouble.
My mother is suspicious, my sister is bridezilla on crack, and my grandpa will tell anyone who’ll listen about his time in Amsterdam’s Red Light District.
I have to keep this up for four days, and then Adam and I can return to our regular lives, where we don’t have sex whenever we’re alone, and my family aren’t interrogating him over his intentions with me.
At least, that’s the plan.
And we all know what happens to those.
This book is going to go down as one of my all time favorites, and has totally given me a new author to love and read as many books as I can find from her. First off, Adam was not only hot, he was hilarious! The way he could put up with Poppy’s sarcasm, take it in stride and throw it right back! My perfect kind of guy. Something I love in romances is when I can relate to the main character, and I related so much to Poppy! Her snarkiness, her t-shirts, everything about her screamed me! Except for the red hair I guess, although I always wished I had red hair, and even have paid to have it at times in my life. I loved her lack of knowledge about sports, to the point that she didn’t even realize who the hot guy she met was until her family recognized him. I could see that happening to me in a situation like this.
I got my copy of this to read while I was at Book Bonanza in Denver, and I started reading it in line. I didn’t want to carry an extra book around to all the signings, so I just started reading this on my phone. It was so good I was seriously laughing out loud while I was sitting in line waiting to get in to the signing. And then I was reading it again during lunch that day, and I was sitting in the restaurant, by myself, laughing out loud.
Of course it has the usual part where the main character, Poppy, is just sure there is no way things are as perfect as they seem, that he couldn’t possibly really like her, and that there is no way they could go anywhere in a relationship afterwards. I love that her best friend in the story calls her out on this, telling her what is happening is just like in the romance books they read. Um, YES!!!! I love that they actually call attention to the fact of what it is.
The family was hilarious as well, all of them fit into the story perfectly and made it perfect. One of my top reads of the year, one of the funniest for sure!

“Ready?” Adam strolled out of the bedroom, playing with the button on his shorts.
“For lunch with my mother?” I turned and stared at him, expressionless. “I’m thrilled.”
He laughed and adjusted the short sleeve of his white shirt. “It’s what—an hour? Then she’ll be back snapping at your sister’s ankles. Surely you can give Rosie a break for sixty whole minutes.”
“Oh no. I’ve done that guilt trip my entire life. I’m not getting it from my fake boyfriend, too.” I waggled my finger at him before turning back to the mirror to finish my make-up. “And yes, I can give her a break, but it doesn’t mean I need to be happy about it.”
“Yes. When I’m in Orlando and she’s in Key West.”
“I mean when you’re together.”
“In the same room together, or having a conversation together?”
“Now you’re just being awkward, Red.”
I brushed a final stroke of mascara over each of my eyes, then stopped, wand in hand, and met his eyes in the reflection of the mirror. “Given how you ended up here, I would have thought you knew that awkward was my default mode.”
“That was cute-awkward. This is attitude-awkward.”
“How do you know there’s a difference?”
He pointed at himself. “Four sisters. I grew up with attitude-awkward. I could recognize it blindfolded with hands cuffed behind my back from two hundred miles away.”
“I thought we established that the night we met.”
My cheeks flushed. Damn it. Why did I have to blush like an idiot? Oh, that’s right. I was a redhead and so pale I was a distant relative of Casper the Friendly Ghost, which meant you could see my blushing a mile off.
“You’re adorable when you blush.” Adam grinned.
“Thank God,” I drawled. “That was my life goal. Be adorable. Now, I can get it in neon lights over my bed.”
