A tragic turn of events during her last year of college sets Lexi on an unexpected trajectory. She is sure that her classmates would be disappointed in the girl they chose as Most Likely to Succeed, which is why, when two of her oldest friends enter the café where she’s waitressing to make ends meet, she pretends to be a customer and sits down with an incredibly kind and attractive stranger, Will Grand. Will finds Lexi both beautiful and intriguing; could she be the one to put an end to his mother’s matchmaking attempts? When a miscommunication leads people to think that Lexi and Will are engaged, he suggests continuing with the fake relationship to see how real the sparks are between them. Lexi has a hard time believing that the fake engagement and her very real feelings for Will are anything more than a fairy tale, but Will is sure that she’s the one for him.
VERDICT Readers looking for a humorous and cozy read will enjoy Sullivan’s (Love, Naturally) newest rom-com, with its great cast of characters and a slow-burn fake engagement where he falls first and they fall harder together.
