Fraudulently Ever After by Denise Grover Swank and A.R. Casella
She’s cursed to live out romance tropes gone wrong. As a millionaire bad boy looking for a fake girlfriend, he is one. They’re a disaster in the making…and each other’s last hope.
Yes, really. I broke a boy’s heart because he wasn’t romance hero material, and his nonna cursed me to live out my favorite plotlines…without the happy ending. Consider my track record:
Second-chance romance? Turns out my old flame returned home to cook meth, not take care of his parents.
Redeemed bad boy? He writes to me occasionally from prison.
Billionaire businessman? Rory was my prince charming…right up until his ex-girlfriend showed up with a baby bump.
My love life is a lost cause, but my friends claim they have a solution. They’re convinced I can rip control from the curse by seeking out a trope situation instead of getting sucked into one.
When I find Zachary Littlefield’s ad seeking a fake girlfriend, I decide it’s go-time. Because I am so over hot rich boys.
I’m the screw-up spare to my brother, the heir—the Littlefield who can never do anything right. Now my brother’s making a huge mistake, and I’m expected to celebrate. Instead, I do what any half-intelligent man would: I hire a date to stir up trouble at his engagement party.
Tina’s not my type, but there’s something about her…
Maybe it’s that she seems completely immune to my charm. I’ve never met a challenge I didn’t want to screw up…or screw.
Another amazing read from this writing duo. And another book I couldn’t put down until it was over.
It’s the third book in the bad luck club series. It reads without reading the first ones (which I highly recommend after you finish this one.)
Poor Tina, I’ve never read a book with a person who had so much bad luck dating! Being cursed never to find a happy ending, I thought it was a paranormal book. But it’s not, it’s just a laugh a minute read that will have you chuckling throughout the book.
Zach is and always has been second best in his family! His brother can do no wrong! So he’s often over looked! So he acts like the spoiled rich brat everyone claims him to be! But there is so much more to him, if only someone would see past the facade.
Zach and Tina were just perfect together. Their chemistry was off the charts, and their banter had me in stitches.
So can this “fake relationship” really become something more permanent? Or will Tina’s curse strike again, and leave her alone once more?
Loved catching up with Harry, Dottie, Josie, Mary and Nicole, they alone brought their own comedy magic to this book.
It’s another highly recommended read from me.
