(#1 within a series)
Publication Date: July 8, 2021
Genre/Tropes: Fake Relationship/Contemporary Romance
Author: Everly Ashton
Review Rating: 3.5 Gold Stars
Everly Ashton is a new to me author and the blurb, the synopsis, the first chapter all sucked me in…unfortunately, the chemistry didn’t jump off the pages for Camila and Lucas like I’d hoped.
Lucas, Travis and Josh are brothers that run Rent-A Husband. It’s a small-job fix-it company that you would call for things like leaky pipes, a broken window, a clogged toilet home maintenance kind of thing. If you either didn’t know how to do it or have the time, these guys would be who you would call. The idea is cute and the book truly starts off with all of the perfect elements, but somehow it just fell a bit flat when the two main characters meet for the first time and their chemistry doesn’t pick up energy for most of the book.
If there is any consolation, the secondary characters were really excellent and added some great humor which kept the story flowing, but overall it was a tough read when the main characters didn’t seem to like each other on a personal level.
Overall this was a 3.5 star book.
When Camila Wright hired me to fix a few things around her house I didn’t expect to find myself swindled into a fake relationship with her.
Sure, my company is called Rent-A Husband but that’s not what people actually hire me for.
But when I find her elbow deep in a tub of ice cream with tears running down her face how can I turn down her proposition?
Suddenly a fake relationship becomes a fake marriage that we have to keep up all summer. Which is all fine and good except for the part where we both agreed not to let anything ‘real’ creep into our arrangement.
But then certain parts of me start to crave certain parts of her and things become even more complicated because we both have our own reasons for wanting what we have to remain make-believe only.
