“Asher Morgan’s publisher is ready to drop the cranky author. And if he isn’t married in four days, his rich grandmother will disown him. He needs to polish his image and find a husband — fast.
Jess Winters needs cash, like yesterday. His bookstore is on the verge of bankruptcy and if it goes under, he and his dog Gary will be homeless.
A marriage of convenience is just what they both need to make their dreams come true. Except the more the chemistry heats up between them, the less convenient their little deception becomes.
When the time comes for their story to end, will either man be ready to close the book?
Let’s Pretend We’re Married is a full-length novel featuring an idealistic bookstore owner and a cranky author, a lovable shop dog, a group of crazy friends, scorching hot explicit scenes, and a no-cheating, all heart, fully realized happily ever after, all set in everyone’s favorite town of Amberly, the cutest town in America.”
Right from the beginning, I fell in love with Jess Winters. He was this strong, independent man who had a bookstore (LOVE). Also right from the beginning, I hated Asher Morgan. He was this cocky, egotistical douche that published a few romance novels (without a romantic bone is his body). As the book progressed, you can see how things change between the two. Obviously there is chemistry between them in the beginning, but when Jess overhears Asher talking poorly about him, all emotions are halted. They get over their differences because when Jess tells Asher about his financial problems and is in danger of losing his bookstore, Asher proposes to him. Asher is supposed to get married for multiple reasons: his grandmother is impatiently waiting, his PR agent is ready to give up on him, and he is to receive an inheritance.
It ends the same way that every fake marriage novel ends.
However, the way that their relationship showed throughout this book was the cutest. Jess showed Asher real love, and that really showed by the end. This was super cute and I would recommend this to anyone who loves a romantic, steamy M/M Romance.
