Cute and sweet, with just a touch of steam, this book is good for a light summer read. I’m a big fan of the “pretend fiance” trope in romance, but it’s rare indeed that the female is the one helping out the male, at least in my experience.

I loved the tension between Caroline and Simon stemming from both their attraction to each other, and the stress of keeping the truth from his family.

However, the whirlwind aspect to the romance, combined with a few other things kept this one from being a favorite of mine. The pacing seemed off at times, and I never really believed that his family would be quite as accepting of Caroline, no matter how nice they truly were.

In the end, this wasn’t a bad way to pass the time, but neither was it a favorite.
