Harlequin Desire. Jul. 2023. 448p. ISBN 9781335457776. pap. $8.99. CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE
Lee concludes her “Hana Trio” with Just a Few Fake Kisses... When concert violist Chloe Han learns that the famous violinist Anthony Larsen—her teenage crush—is filling in as a member of their trio, she is thrilled. But when one of Anthony’s past indiscretions threatens his charity work, Chloe is less certain about the wisdom of agreeing to be his fake girlfriend. Especially when he’s not over his dead wife, and Chloe’s feelings might not be as in the past as she thought. Marsh’s True Love Experiment, a grumpy/sunshine, friends-to-lovers story with a charity bachelor auction, offers a tropefest of reader favorites. When billionaire chemist Nash Masterson is dragged into a charity event, he knows English professor Wren Wilson is the one to help him out. But as fake dates turn into real attraction, Wren fears that the scientist, who refuses to believe in love, won’t be able to give her the HEA her heart craves.
VERDICT Readers of Lee’s (One Night Only) trilogy won’t want to miss Chloe’s story, though new readers might find certain aspects, such as the hero’s motivations, less palatable. Marsh’s (The Inheritance Test) friends-who-start to-want-more-than-just-benefits story has wide appeal.
