    3.5*Another fake relationship for the win! I really enjoyed this one. [=Asher is a famous author who has recently gotten some bad press that has dwindled his chances at a book deal he was counting on. Without the deal and the money that comes with it he will have to succumb to the demands that his grandfather left in his Will and one his grandmother is enforcing. In order to receive his inheritance he must be married at the age of 30. He has put it off as long as he could considering he's already 30. So he has no choice but to get married if he wants to remain being an author that can write what he wants. Jess is a bookstore owner. An owner who is in quite a bit of debt. He invites Asher to his store to do a book signing in hopes that his appearance will raise enough money to keep his home and shop afloat. Unfortunately even Asher's appearance, which did garner a lot of attention for Jess's store, wasn't enough to keep him in business.Asher is attracted to Jess and finds him interesting and someone he thinks he wouldn't mind being married to if had to choose someone. So when he see's Jess's pile of past due bills he figures he'd take a leap and make the offer. He gets his inheritance and Jess can save his shop. Jess is a romantic and has a healthy (clears throat) obsession with romance novels. He has a bit of a naïve lookout on how marriage should be. He has his perfect marriage and husband all figured out in his head and Asher isn't it. But he feels an attraction to Asher and feels like this could be an adventure. So he agrees. The more time spent together the more Jess see's how much he was wrong about Asher and starts falling pretty fast and hard for the guy. Asher started falling before the vowels were given. He's just been waiting on Jess to catch up and to realize he's it for him.The relationship is sweet and all the side characters were charming and likable. I even loved the dog. It was just a really sweet read that had no angst and very little to no drama. I liked both men and felt they had great chemistry. A great easy read if your in the mood for sweet.Happy reading dolls! xx

    2.5 starsWhen I read about fake-marriage, I expect some sort of "tension". Either because the couples are enemies, or strangers, who have to learn how to fake relationship but then fall in love in progress OR between friends, who realize that they have feelings for one another.This one didn't have that, in my humble opinion. Though strangers at first Asher and Jess was easily fall into the relationship, practically no trouble at all. Like they have been familiar with each other for long time. Well, that BORED the hell out of me. I ended up skipping a lot, and dismissing all the extrasIn addition, there were quite a number of editing error here, like Dante suddenly become Damon, or Asher's chapter titled Jess, etc. I usually am not very perceptive of these things, because I am not a detailed person, but the glaring errors were too obvious even I noticed.

    Have you ever read a book and you can't put your finger on why it didn't work for you? Well, that's what's happened with this story and me. I know it happens and I can live with that.

    This is the first book I've read by this author and I liked it. Asher and Jess both found themselves in a jam. The best (and quickest) way for them to find their way out was to get married.... to each other. It took me a little while to warm up to Asher but I liked how we got to see him grow as the story progressed. They ended up being a good couple and I was glad to see them get their HEA. I would read more by this author. *I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book. This is my honest review.*

    Asher and Jess both find that they need each others help so a marriage of conveniences is what they find themselves in. There is some angst, falling in love with your fake husband and realizing that they make a great married couple.This is a really sweet read.I received a copy for an honest review.

    What do you get when you mix an asshole writer with a romantic, yet prickly bookstore owner? One heck of a fun story. My favorite stories have a lot of sarcasm and snark, with a good mix of fun loving. This story delivers in spades. Love it.

    I’m not sure what to think of this book. It had…issues? I guess is the right word. The premise sounded really good to me. Small bookstore owner in little town hosts an award winning author for a book signing and circumstances lead them to a marriage of convenience. It sounded really cute with the potential to have some very interesting well-developed characters. I gave it two stars for having a creative concept.Asher and Jess had some very interesting conversations about commercial versus literary books, not so briefly hitting on the old argument of romance novels and their place in literature. I quite enjoyed these discussions. “Popular and commercial always outsells award-winning and literary. That’s why you shouldn’t disparage romance novels.”“Just because something makes money doesn’t mean it’s good.”“Maybe, but just because something’s popular doesn’t mean it’s bad…”At about thirty percent, I started noticing a few missed words, a pronoun here, a wrong tense verb there, forgetting to capitalize the letter “i” which my word program wouldn’t even let me do just now, missing opening quotes, etc. This book definitely needed another edit for the little things. But…Suddenly, at seventy-five percent on my Kindle, Asher wrote a couple of chapters of a new book, he and Jess went for a walk on the beach, Asher suddenly has a book deal and is leaving to go to a meeting with the publishers while in the middle of a fight about divorce. All in less than five pages? Did I fast-forward and miss something? Did time pass? Do authors really write a few chapters of a new book and suddenly have meetings with publishers in just a few hours? Then at eighty-three percent, I find myself in the epilogue, only there’s another chapter after that. A couple of pages later, I’m trying to figure out if this is an excerpt from Asher’s book or is this some other book or what? I look at the table of contents and see that there are still five more chapters listed. So I use the trusty skip button on my kindle to skip ahead and I guess the rest of the chapters are the first chapters of other stories by this author? Followed by another chapter full of reviews for said story? I don’t know it was all very confusing.Bottom line – the end of this book was very rushed. There was room for so much more development with these characters but it just seemed like the author was trying to rush from point B to point D and just get on to the next book. I felt like I missed a big chunk of Jess and Asher’s story as a result.

    Romantic, sweet and full of fun moments, this is also a steamy love story. And my favourite trope, to boot!I quickly fell in love with both characters, for different reasons, as they have really different personalities.I like Jess' hopeless romanticism, his idealism, and Asher's sincere attempts to tame his arrogance and crankiness.The only complain I have is that its pace felt a little rushed. I'd have enjoyed a little more of clueless fumbling and tension between the characters, but that is just me, probably.A really enjoyable reading.

    2.5 I was sort of disappointed with this one because I love this trope - marriage of convenience that turns real. This one missed the mark somewhere. There are editing problems that were very noticeable but there was also a definite lack of any tension here. Even the misunderstanding lasted about two pages and was resolved in a couple sentences. We are told often how grumpy Asher is, how antisocial, but we didn't see that. So, just a miss for me.

    This was a cute story. I love the cover. It's eye catching. The story itself was enjoyable. Predictable to a fault, but still fun to read. I really liked both characters and could relate with them. The dog was cute. The grandma was fun. The plot itself with the inheritance thing was sorta weird. But I went with it anyhow. I read this in one setting and would recommend if you're looking for a sweet story with mild spice.

    Another excellent story.I think this series just keeps getting better and better with each story. Asher's grandmother is a sneaky little thing. Luckily her meddling turned out okay. I love the idea of finding your true love in a matter of days and that books brought them together. I don't think life gets any better than that.

    Editor neededSo badly edited it spoiled the story. One character's name was changed for an entire chapter! Along with bad grammar and repeated paragraphs this book desperately needed an editor. I'm usually pretty relaxed about overlooking little mistakes\word swaps but this spoiled the flow.

    I read a free Advance Reader Copy of this book for my honest opinion and review. Jess and Asher were a joy to watch fall in love with each other. It was sweet, funny and very steamy. The story was well written and the characters were believable. I would definitely enjoy reading a series spin-off.

    Great build up until ~60%. The point of no return and ending seemed rushed without dwelling on the thoughts and emotions needed to invest yourself in the story.
