She wants a temporary fake romance

Can he make it real...and forever?

Driving across the country in an RV with her terminally ill godmother was not Daphne Merlotte's idea. Nor was crashing the RV into a small-town coffee shop, nearly hitting local good guy Mel Greene. Now Daphne will do anything to keep her godmother from continuing the trip--even asking Mel to be her fake boyfriend. But there's nothing fake about Mel's intentions--he wants a real romance!

My Review: 4 Stars

I honestly wasn't quite sure what to think when I first started this book. I'm used to reading romances where the characters are younger. Mel is 50 years old and quite the romantic at heart, but he almost tries too hard to find his perfect match. He's almost too meticulous, but I quickly became endeared to him, quirks and all. His literal run-in with Daphne was hilarious, and she's just as eccentric as he is and lovable just the same!

The overall feeling of the story is slightly old-fashioned, as that's how the characters are, but it also made me feel a longer for the simpler times gone by. They each have one foot in the past and with the entire cast of zany characters, I fell deeply into the story, especially as they stumble into a relationship of convenience. I just had to know how it would turn out.

There are moments of nostalgia, mixed with bitter, deep-rooted pain that emotionally twisted my heart, but there are also plenty of sweet and slightly humorous moments that balanced everything nicely. The romance is gentle and progresses at a nice pace, even though it is on the fast side.

For me, it was a character driven story and this cast is unusual and unpredictable, which made this a fun escape.

Content: mild romance; mild violence (mainly car accidents and talk of death)

  1. Katie, you've captured my story perfectly. Mel was born in a different time from today's romantic hero, so I really tried to respect his past. I'm glad you enjoyed the zany cast...they kept me on my toes!

    1. I bet you had your hands full with that cast! What fun!!

  2. Love a real romance romance! Congrats!
