Jill Michaels prides herself on one thing: being independent. That is until her daughter gets into an elite school, and she needs money more than ever. It seems her fairy godmother—aka her deceased Grammy—has granted that wish in the form of one-fourth of her estate. The only catch? She must be married by her thirtieth birthday. In two months.
Aaron Collins is fresh out of the army and back in town to help his father’s failing business. When he runs into Jill at a hotel where she’s attending a single’s mixer, he makes sure she doesn’t make it past his room and into another guy’s arms. When he hears about her predicament, he has a plan: they’ll get married and keep it a secret. And maybe have a little sexy fun until he leave towns for his new job.
But letting go of the woman of his dreams may be harder than Aaron could have ever imagined.
Review by Christine:
Falling for the Fake Fiance by Jennifer Blackwood is the second spicy story in her Snowpocalypse series and takes a different tone than Landing the Air Marshall booked one in the series. Falling for the Fake Fiance is a friends to lovers almost a second chance love story packed into a fast paced story that you’ll fly through.
The plot to the story is one of Jillian must get married to obtain a large inheritance before her 30th birthday but that’s in 2 months. When Jillian runs into Aaron, childhood neighbor, she’s can’t resit his charm and wit. Aaron, ex-military, is home to help out his father’s business and the last thing he wants is to get tied into something long term since he’s only planning on being in town a couple of weeks but be drawn to Jillian the neighbor he always wanted but can he resist helping out the girl he’s always wanted?
Did I enjoy this read? Yes. Did I love it as much as the last book? No. I didn’t feel this book embraced the Snowpocalypse theme like the last book did and that disappointed me. Snow is barely a factor in this story and I feel like an opportunity was missed. I like the chemistry between the characters and found this story a bit of a slow burn, not a bad thing just different for a Jennifer novel. It’s a quick, light read with a ton of “feels” and a bit of heat ~ possibly a nice beach/vacation read. 4 Stars for Falling for the Fake Fiance by Jennifer Blackwood
