Publisher's Summary

He needs a wife. I need a husband. It’s just temporary...what could go wrong?

I’ve always wanted the fairy tale wedding. Not for the princess perfect dress or big party, but for papa. My grandfather. The only father figure I’ve ever known. It’s his dying wish to walk me down the aisle. 

Gee, no pressure.

But I can grant that wish. I just have to fake being head over heels in love with Ross Andrews, my best friend's big brother whom I embarrassingly crushed on all through high school. Handsome. Knockout sexy. Arrogant jerk extraordinaire. Our childish pranks and tit-for-tat battles were legendary. Then I grew up. Not that he ever noticed.

I know it’s a terrible idea, and we’re both in over our heads. It could be the wedding of a lifetime or a total disaster. 

How do we make it to the altar without killing each other first? Or without falling in love for real?

My Big Fat Fake Wedding is a full-length romance with a HEA and no cliff-hanger. Now a Washington Post and Amazon best seller.

What a hoot

I really enjoyed this story which was narrated by Carly Robins and Joe Arden who did a great job bringing the story to life for me.

This is an enemies to lovers story about Violet & Ross’s story and was an entertaining listen. The characters were easy to relate to and I found myself laughing out loud on numerous occasions, although there was also groaning and shaking my head as the story developed.

The banter and chemistry between them added an extra layer to the story of love and family and the lengths a person will go to make a loved one happy and protect them.

I did feel at times that it was a little over the top, but growing up with close friends who are Greek(yes I know this is an Italian family) I could relate to many of the scenes, particularly the ones with Nana.

Big Fat but not fake Masterpiece

I love books by Lauren Landish, but this is a whole new ball game. This heartwarming, funny, heartbreaking and amazing story takes a big fat Italian Cake. Lovable characters and their unique family and friends, the premise and friends to enemies theme, everything is served as delightful story. I must give props to Carly Robins who gave an outstanding performance as Violette and her family members, and whose narrative had me in pieces from first minute. And of course Joe Arden as Ross is amazing as always. Their narration brought this book to another level. This Audiobook just became my new favorite.

Fun and entertaining

While the premise of the story maybe a little easy to predict it’s still an enjoyable and entertaining book.
I love both of these narrators so I had no problem at all listening to this story as it unfolded.

Looking for fun? This one delivers!

What do you do when you HAVE to get married so your dying grandfather can walk you down the aisle? Violet finds herself in a bind. She has just broken up with her fiance, her wedding is 2 weeks away and her goal is to grant her ailing grandfather is wish of walking her down the aisle. Ross, her best friend's brother, childhood nemesis and man she has crushed on is in need of a reputation lift. What the answer? Marry each other! These two are a perfect match! Violet is extreme, needs this to happen, so with this solution, she finds herself in more than just a fake marriage. Her true feelings are coming through, but does Ross feel the same? Ross is finding his playboy days are not as exciting as he thought as he begins his journey with Violet. Is this where he is supposed to be? It's a frenemies to lovers story that accentuates family and their trials, relationship history which I absolutely love with flashbacks to their childhood that just make you cringe and smile at the antics and a love that can't be broken. In true Landish style, the books is amazing and left me feeling good!

Carly Robins and Joe Arden are a perfect cast for this story. Robins has a young sounding voice, with that slightly emotional feel. Violet is definitely this person, full of that angsty personality, trying to make life perfect. With Arden as Ross, we have that strong business man, knowing what he wants and trying to get there. Arden hones in on the strength, the emotions and then gives the romantic side that softness. I loved the narration of this story!

Entertaining

First of all, I read the reviews for this book before I purchased it and was not sure how to feel; some people can be mean. We all like different things, so I went for it anyways.... and I was not disappointed. I absolutely loved and adored this story. It was fun, witty, cute, extremely entertaining, and oh so sweet.
Carly Robins and Joe Arden are simply perfect! Loved listening to them.

You will laugh and cry with this wonderful story. Ross and Violet are perfectly imperfect for each other in this sexy, funny and crazy tale. Great performance from Carly Robbins and Joe Arden.

Good

I predicted some parts and I was completely surprised by others. I wanted more or at least more of what I expected. I of course will read/ listen to the next book because I'm a huge fan of the author.

A scorching hot listen

Wow I don’t know if I can find the right words to do this story justice. Lauren Landish went all out for thus one. There are some scenes that will have you laughing your self to tears but also shaking your head. Love how Lauren had a great hand in word play like frienenemies .
Hero is Ross , who is an Alpha Male , but with a big heart. He always gets the bad press even when he goes all out to save someone. Heroine is Violet , she’s an alpha female. Both Ross and Violet give as good as they get starting the pranks in school. . Ross has 2 sisters and one sister Abby , is Violets best friend .
When both Ross and Violet are caught in a bind Abby has a scheme of how they can help each other out. Ross is trying to handle his father and Violet giving her grandfather his last wish . The idea that Abby had was for Ross and Violet to have a real fake marriage . You wonder how that will be pulled out. You will need to grab it and find out . Will anybody find out what is going on. Violet world will come crumbling down , and Ross will take a step back and face some facts . Hope One of Ross sister gets her HEA

What more can I say about both performers. Both Carly Robins and Joe Arden pulled this story off perfectly. Even Carly voice doing her Italian relatives were spot on. Joe doing the female parts like his sisters and mother was great

Enemies to marriage

This is a hilarious, sexy, emotional book about two best friends and one of the best friends annoying big brother and where that love/hate relationship goes.

Violet and Abi have been best friends forever and Abi's arrogant brother Ross has always been around giving Vi grief one way or another. She had the biggest crush on Ross until he constantly gave her a hard time in highschool and then it was game on for her returning the digs anyway she could. When grown up Vi and Ross have life issues that they need each other Abi sets her plan in motion. She pushes the two together and they set off on a fast pace track to their HEA even though they think it is all Fake.

This book has so many levels and is wrapped up with both of the characters families and friends/co-workers. I fell in love with these characters and their friends and loved every page of it.

Joe Arden and Carly Robins are super fantastic as Ross and Violet. Loved listening to them from start to finish.

Fake wedding

Being Italian I could relate to the Italian meals and party. I found it very entertaining. Yay for finding two men in such a short amount of time! Realistic? No way! I enjoyed the narration, I always enjoy them and love books by Lauren Landish.
