Wine, friends, fake dating, and a large family round out this Wright book.
This is a book filled with interconnecting storylines that took two friends on several fake dates while they slowly fell in love.
Julian has always found Jennifer attractive, but never acted on it for several reasons, a big one is that he had a long term girlfriend, who is a bit of snobby witch, but now they are both free and he finds himself in the perfect situation to finally make his move.
Jennifer has had a crush on Julian since he moved to town, but the timing between them has never worked out, but when the opportunity arises for Julian to accompany her home for a family event and she can return the favor for a gala, their friendly status elevates to fake dating and then to more as “benefits” soon become involved, things soon get complicated.
I’ve loved reading K.A. Linde before and she’s bewitched me in the past, however I’m not sure if it was this story, or the chemistry between the characters or what exactly as this story didn’t connect right away with me. It was pleasant and I enjoyed all the characters, but I didn’t get that wow factor right out of the gate. This couple was slow to warm for being friends and having a history, but overall the story was a 4.5 read.
A new stand alone fake relationship romance set in the world of the Wrights from USA Today bestselling author K.A. Linde…
I never thought I’d say yes to a fake date.
Let alone with Julian Wright.
But I’m stuck attending my perfect brother’s doctoral graduation, and I can’t suffer through another round of parental disappointment. Julian has to go to a charity function he planned with his ex-girlfriend. We both need a date.
Yes, we shared one kiss in a darkened office to make his ex jealous. But it wasn’t real. Was it?
I’m sure I can get through this. Until we get to the house and there’s only one bed.
I’ve pined for Julian for three long years. More than my body is on the line…I need to guard my heart.
Because if I get hurt in our fake relationship, then it serves me Wright.
