I never thought I’d say yes to a fake date.
Let alone with Julian Wright.
But I’m stuck attending my perfect brother’s doctoral graduation, and I can’t suffer through another round of parental disappointment. Julian has to go to a charity function he planned with his ex-girlfriend. We both need a date.
Yes, we shared one kiss in a darkened office to make his ex jealous. But it wasn’t real. Was it?
I’m sure I can get through this. Until we get to the house and there’s only one bed.
I’ve pined for Julian for three long years. More than my body is on the line...I need to guard my heart.
Because if I get hurt in our fake relationship, then it serves me Wright.
This is such an important story. It helps you understand people with mental illnesses but most importantly it helps you understand yourself in relation to people who struggle. While reading this story, I found myself very annoyed with Jennifer. I didn’t understand why she behaved/reacted like she did. She mentioned several times she had anxiety, but in today’s society, anxiety is more like a luxury. It’s not something that many people would consider debilitating. Or if you’re me and suffer from anxiety yourself, it shows you that not everyone deals with, or expresses their anxiety in the same way. I found myself frustratingly saying out loud “tell her off!”
One thing I could connect with though was feeling less than and wishing you were your unencumbered friends/family. Also, the negative self-talk… I could relate to that. Hard.
I love how the author also hit on the blasé attitude of which we deal with our less than understanding peers. “That’s just them, they’re from a different time, etc.” we need to nip that in the bud now!
But about the romance:
This is a fake relationship story! A trope I’ve grown to love.
Julian Wright is a member of a wealthy family and he seems to have his pick of the litter, so when he wants Jennifer, she has reservations. Even her own mom thinks that the wealthy Wright is “slumming it” with her. She doesn’t trust his intentions.
Through scary terminal illnesses and mental health issues, they find a way to find their normal and are able to reach a happily ever after.
The sex in the book was steamy. Ol’ Jules really knows what he’s doing! While the steam isn’t fogging up your e-readers any time soon, it’s still nice. The real star here is the issues the book deals with.
