Publisher's Summary

No one expects their happy ending to start with a fake boyfriend.

Especially Marti McBride.

As the infamous author of New York City's singles column, Marti's entire identity is wrapped up in being single.

But when her boss informs her that her ratings have plummeted, she is forced to make a change. And her boss just so happens to think a boyfriend is the way to do it.

Doctor Logan Love has a plan. Garner more donations for his charity and go nationwide.

So after two chance run-ins with the wildly popular and nationally syndicated columnist, Marti McBride, he proposes a fake relationship. Okay, more like he blackmails her into one. Same difference.

There's only one little problem. Both of them are starting to fall, and Marti has her own agenda he knows nothing about.

Can they turn a fake relationship into love?

Fantastic story

This story has me completely riveted in the very best of ways. I loved every second, the chemistry, the banter, the easy way you just fell right into their story alongside them. Delightfully snarky and funny as well as wonderfully sexy with some surprises in store for us. Rhonda Cusumano does a wonderful job portraying & bringing the characters to life.

well.....

I have to admit, I didn't finish. the narator wasn't working for me. the tone of her voice was fine, but her cadence/speech pattern, something was off. I tried adjusting the speed but I couldn't find anything that worked. it was almost robotic, how they don't pronounce inflections properly. I can't put my finger on it, but I just couldn't finish when I realized I own the ebook as well. I was enjoying the story itself, and I know it will be better if I just read it, rather than listen

Love never lies

The divorce of Marti McBride's parents rocked her world when she was young. And she determined never to give anyone the chance to break her heart in the way that her father broke her mother's. She's made a career of writing about being single in the city, and how she doesn't need a man in order to live a fulfilling life.

Then in walks Dr. Logan Love... She has no idea what to do with him, but he makes her feel things she's never felt before and turns her world upside down.

The question is, is she willing to walk away from her career and a job she loves in order to have the man she wants?

I really enjoyed the premise of this story. At times, it got a little repetitive, especially when Marti is trying to reconcile what she believes with what she feels. But I recognize that's a very natural way of processing things. She kept running up against the same issues and needed to sort through them.

And Logan was a dream. His sincerity and patience were wonderful, and I loved the banter between the two of them.

There was an odd thing at the end that appeared to be two minutes of random extra audio files; flashbacks to earlier scenes in the book. At first, I thought it was some kind of epilogue. But I think it's just a file upload issue. It did detract from the ending though because it was hard to determine where the end was. I had to listen a couple of times to figure out what was going on.

But overall, if you ignore the last two minutes, the story was a lot of fun and well-worth the time to read it.

Cute story!

I enjoyed this book. The story really draws you in and gets you invested in the people their in.

The narration was decent. The main character was portrayed a bit whiney and the male speakers were a little difficult to identify at times. Also I noticed a slight southern accent which didn’t fit the New York scene.

Good fake relationship story

The Fake Relationship trope is one of my favorites, and Tia Souders wrote a fun story with great dialogue. I really enjoyed the banter between Marti and Logan. This is a clean romance. I’m looking forward to book 2!

A Rom-Com gone wrong

** spoiler alert ** This book was marketed as a Rom-Com so I couldn’t say no when I had the chance to receive a code for it on Audible. Sadly, it wasn’t the type of Rom-Com I was thinking about (like Seeking Jake Ryan which I finished just the other day) but more like this:
Marti - I’m a strong woman and I don’t need men. Except when I date them and then write about our bad dates in my super well-known column.
Logan - aaaaa... I think you do this because you’re afraid to open yourself and let anyone in.
Marti - Shut up. You’re stupid and I’m a feminist.
Blue (Marti’s Boss) - You’re loosing readers. Start dating someone. It might help. Also, I just got engaged!
Logan - Oh! So we meet again. Do you want to go on a date with me?
Marti - I hate you but yes. I won’t tell you this is helping with my job though.
Logan - You say you hate me because you’re afraid of letting me in.
Marti - My das left me and now he’s getting married. I don’t believe in love and I don’t put walls up. Also I discovered some dark things about your past.
Logan - My past is supposed to make me more likable. I also have a charity. Why do you put up walls?
Marti - Uh! I hate you and I don’t have walls! Also I don’t believe in love because of what my dad did.
Blue - You have to break up with Logan because I broke my engagement off. The most important thing in my life is my job.
Marti - I think that would be mean to Logan. I don’t like him but I don’t want to make him suffer.
Blue - I can make you do it.
Marti - Logan, we are breaking up. My job comes first.
Logan - I thought your walls were crumbling over. I was wrong.
Marti - I miss Logan’s abs and his hands on my back. I can’t break up with him.
Logan - I saw the article about my dark past that was just published. I don’t want to have nothing to do with you or your walls.
Marti - Logan, I think I love you. Also, you have walls too that’s why you don’t believe me.
Marti - I can’t break up with Logan. I’m going to quit my job.
Blue - Do whatever you want. I was doing more shady things besides meddling in my subordinates’ personal lives. I’m running away and just sold the paper to some billionaire that’s going to be a love interest in the next book where your friend that has triplets and suddenly is in a very precarious situation is going to be the main character.
Marti - I’m not quitting my job, then! I miss Logan’s kisses and hands.
Logan - Just discovered you weren’t the one who told the world about my dark past. I love you.
Marti - I love you. Thank you for breaking my walls.
THE END

The notes I took while reading:

*It has that theme of family being broken but loving each other. I always cry it that but this one didn’t do it for me. The MC was angry but there wasn’t the necessary sadness underneath it for this to work.
* MC is super scared of being hurt, of things not being easy and just lovey-dovey. Did no one tell her that life has good things and bad things and that suffering is nothing to be afraid of? Is this a thought modern society has as an whole? It’s sad and so stupid...
* I can’t connect with this character. She’s just so unlikeable.
* This narrator says everything either in a sing-song voice or as if she’s in the evening news. It’s awkward and doesn’t work with the book.
* How am I to believe she loves this man if all she things about are his abs and his hands in her back?
* Why move forward with NO REGRETS? It’s a good thing to regret what we did wrong!
* What was that ending? Not the Epilogue, the random conversations?

[Note - the friend is going to be the main character in the next book but the love interest is not the billionaire... I’m still pretty happy with my predictions]

Narration

The last chapter is very odd. In the background there are several keyboard sounds and what sounds like emails being sent. Plus the ending is very abrupt. I did wonder if some narration had been left out at the end. And I’ve never heard this before, but some of the narration was very like a computer voice. The story wasn’t bad but the narration was a bit bizarre.
