Publisher's Summary

Tracey Livesay continues her fun-filled Girls Trip series with this romance that will tug at your heartstrings. 

Sometimes faking it can lead to the real thing… 

Driven and focused, Dr. Nicole Allen is an accomplished surgeon. With a tough past, Nic's gone above and beyond everyone's expectations. But when she disciplines an intern—a powerful donor's son—a prestigious fellowship she's awaiting is placed in jeopardy. 

Coming from a successful family who runs a medical business empire, Benjamin Reed Van Mont is the black sheep, having chosen to start his own business instead. Though he's not ready to settle down, he knows when the time comes it definitely won't be with a workaholic doctor like his friend Nic—even if she's had him re-examining his edict…more than once. 

When Ben's status-climbing ex-girlfriend finds her way back into his orbit, Nic proposes a swap of services. She'll spend the week with Ben on Martha's Vineyard, pretending to be his girlfriend—but only if he'll have his family intervene on her behalf so she won't lose her fellowship. How hard can the charade be? 

But as they're about to discover, they've sorely underestimated their true feelings for each other…

Not a bw romance

There was nothing that lead me to believe this was a Black woman romance. The number of times her pale creamy skin tone and green eyes were mentioned was cringey. It wouldn’t have been so bad if maybe the author did the same thing in the first book, but I can barely remember what shade of brown the woman was in the first book. There’s something about Black interracial authors that really hype up light skin and eyes. If that’s your thing then this is the book for you.

I tried

I tried, really did. But this narrator is awful. I have tried increasing speed. No luck. Even though story is good this narrator make listening seem like watching paint dry. And all of the characters sound the same. I can’t easily tell whose speaking. I will have to get in hard copy.

Loved the book

I love the book and this narrator did not do it justice. To me she was monotone throughout the whole book.

A sweet, fleshed-out friends-to-lovers story

I thought that the narrator did a fine job, particularly with the "upper-crust" characters in this story. I also enjoyed the hero's resolution of understanding his pro footballer client and his finances. There's some racial conversations had in this book that was good to read. The only problem I had with this book was the weak epilogue. I'm definitely looking forward to hearing Ava's story next.
