Ring of Truth (A Silver Script Novel Book 1) by Jaclyn Weist {Review}

Ring of Truth (A Silver Script Novel Book 1) by Jaclyn Weist
Kindle Edition, 222 pages
Published November 3rd 2015 by Dragons & Fairy Tales Press 
Erin doesn’t have time for a relationship. After six years of late nights and mind-numbing assignments at her job as a marketing executive, she’s finally landed the coveted Smithson Jeweler’s account—which means her love life will have to wait a little longer.

When the actress at the first commercial shoot upsets the director, Erin finds herself cast as the leading lady alongside Jake, a handsome up-and-coming actor who rescued her cat from the streets and stole her heart.

Flustered, she walks away from the shoot wearing the diamond ring, and her mom mistakes it for an engagement between Erin and Jake. Both are desperate enough to get their parents off their backs, that they run with the lie.

Now Jake and Erin have to figure out how to admit their story is false without hurting their parents or destroying the friendship they’ve gained with each other.


My Review: 3.5 Stars
Erin is a busy woman, making her way in New York City as an ad executive. Jake is trying to break through into the acting scene and a job on a commercial leads Erin's mother to believe they're engaged. A plan is hatched to let their parents think that, to keep them off their backs about their non-existent relationships. The premise of this story is very promising and I like stories built on a fake relationships, especially when the relationship of convenience brings out the chemistry and true feelings of the characters.
As an avid reader of clean romance, I love to watch the full development of the story and I love it when all the pieces pull together to present a sigh-worthy book. The elements are all there in this one--a fun first-meet, great chemistry, uncomfortable situations, a suspenseful climax--but the presentation is a little flat. I wanted more of their feelings, more connection, and more relationship development, as this is an insta-love.

Erin and Jake are great characters and the bonds they each have with their families is endearing. The setting is enjoyable, but also a tad unrealistic, as they are living in the middle of NYC and everyone (parents, friends, etc) drives their cars around. Maybe people really do, but everyone I know just takes the subway/cab/bus/walks.

Overall, this is a fun, quick read and those who love a clean, contemporary romance will enjoy it.

Content: mild romance (kissing). Clean!
