When I envisioned Zara Logan dropping to her knees in front of me, this wasn’t what I had in mind…
I was expecting a lot less glaring and a lot more moaning.
Instead, she’s proposing an enticing deal that I can’t bear to walk away from.
To land one of the city’s biggest clients, she wants us to put our differences aside and play fake fiancés for the next thirty days.
So, I slip the diamond ring onto her finger and agree to play the perfect fiancé. How hard can this be?
A hell of a lot harder than I thought…
She’s infuriatingly stubborn and she thinks I’m a cocky jerk with an enormous ego. (She’s right, but I can definitely back it up…)
As our long days stretch into even later nights, it’s getting harder to remember we’re only playing pretend, which means one thing.
She won’t be faking it for long…
This was a total enemies-to-lovers romance and I loved it! Zara was grumpy and as you saw all the people she dealt with, as well as the enormous amount of responsibility she felt for taking care to make sure her younger brother got a better life than he would have had at home, it made sense. And then there was Leo. It took me a bit to get him, I mean I hated how he seemed to have it all but was still kind of standoffish, but it made sense for him too once you learned about what had happened to him when he first started in his football career.
And I loved his friends that are going to make up the SWANK group I see at the end. The name of the series changed from when I first started promoting this I guess, but I think this name fits well. I loved the romance in this, and when Leo took care of Zara after her street hot dog, it made me fall in love with him immediately. And I totally got her stubbornness. I wanted to punch Zara’s boss’s daughter so many times though! I’m excited to see how her friend from work hopefully ends up working with the guys, and I hope we have more with her neighbor friend maybe as well. Looking forward to reading more of this series!
