Publisher's summary

A fake relationship can’t fix a broken heart...right?

I’ve been in love with my best friend, Eli, forever, and I was all set to confess my feelings...until he showed up at my birthday party with someone else. I would have died on the spot if Rome hadn’t pulled me close, kissed me, and told everyone we’d secretly been dating for months. Except we’re not boyfriends. And until that night we’d never even kissed.

When my family finds out about our supposed relationship, we have to play along. Spending time with Rome is easy and fun. And our fake kisses are hot enough to set my body on fire.

Could it be real with Rome? I don’t want to screw up our friendship, but his touch makes me want more. I waited too long before, and I can’t risk losing Rome. Not when what I feel is so much stronger than I ever expected.

So how can we make this fake relationship real? And how do we make it last forever?

Loved this one

I was given a free audio copy from the author and the GRR arc team for review.

4.5 stars

Grady has been in love with Eli secretly since school. He wants to finally confess his love at his birthday party. Eli unfortunately chooses that time to abnounce he's engaged leaving Grady shocked and heartbroken. So to save face Rome kisses him and tells his family and friends they have been dating for months. Rome has been secretly in love with Grady for 20 years and hopes maybe now he can win him over.

This can be read as a standalone. I have only read book 6 before this one. I enjoyed that one but this one was alot better.

This was a sweet read that I will definitely listen to again and definitely recommend. I'll be sure to read the rest of the series.

Narrator had a pleasant reading voice. He did a great performance and expressed the emotions well. I did have to speed up the pace a little and I do wish the voices were a little more distinct among the characters but overall I enjoyed it.

A good book

Fake relationship tropes are some of my favorite books when well done. I enjoyed this book but some of the character interactions got on my nerves. Someone seriously needed to punch Eli for being a selfish @#$ but I was glad to finally see some remorse from him at the end of the book. Gray and Rome are a good couple and I did enjoy the book. This is a good example of honesty and communication go a long way! The narrator has a nice voice too.

Grady and Rome

Grady has been in love with Eli for years, when Eli shows up at Grady's birthday party with another man and announces their engagement, Rome steps in and says that he and Grady are a couple. They decide to take date to keep up the ruse, but Some has been in love with Grady for years. They have their ups and downs but finished with a great ending. Love Austin Jay's narration

In love with my best friend

Third book of the series so far. Love the Caldwell family! Grady is in love with his best friend Eli, Rome is in love with his best friend Grady, Grady depends on Rome to have his back always, Eli is a jerk. Thankfully Grady gets hit with the reality stick where Eli is concerned and Rome steps in to claim his man. I just love Grady and Rome together, they fit. Eli needs to grow up and become a useful human being. Throw in the rest of the Caldwell family and you have another hit!

Love or just a crush?

This was a friends to lovers story filled with complications. A loves B, who crushes on C, who has an attitude and is playing everyone. I enjoyed listening to this, though certain behaviors and actions by the characters got on my nerves. The narration was good and suited the story well enough. A good story, even as a stand-alone, since this was my first from the Caldwell brothers.

Good story

I really liked this story and the characters, I loved that what message of this story even more, such a warm and positive ending to something that could have gone in the opposite direction.

A sweet fake dating friends to lovers romance!

I absolutely love this series!

This was one of my favorites and it can be enjoyed as a standalone.

I loved this friends to lovers, low angst fake dating romance.

Rome and Grady made an amazing couple and I was rooting for them from the start.

The narration was fairly enjoyable and an easy listen.
