⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Sweet and laidback slow burn

Real Love, Fake Marriage

I really enjoyed this fake relationship romance. I wasn’t sure what to expect from this new author, but the story is solid and the laidback, slow burn romance felt well developed. While I can’t say that there is sizzling chemistry between these two, I can say that I enjoyed the journey from start to finish and loved the way our hero evolves throughout the book.

The story follows Deacon, a workaholic whose sole focus in life is growing the family business. His father has been in poor health for months, and a simple conversation ends with Deacon claiming to have a girlfriend just to make his father happy. After enlisting his secretary into the plan (the woman he sees the most), Deacon thinks they’ll just play the part for a few hospital visits – until things spiral out of control. Now Deacon and Mindy find themselves in a marriage neither one expected, with feelings that grow each day.

There are plenty of fake relationship romances out there, but the storyline here is pretty original. Both characters are easy to like, and the slow burn was fun to read. If anything, there wasn’t enough heat because this reads more as a sweet romance and the chemistry could’ve been turned up a notch. Minor typos throughout the book make it clear this is an indie author, but they don’t overwhelm the story. I would definitely check out more of the author’s work in the future. I received a free copy via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
