This marriage is strictly business... until the temptation gets way too real.

Corbin: I loved my grandma, but I don’t need her money. All I care about is keeping the house — the only place that’s ever felt like home. That, and screwing over my dad, who wants to turn the property into a mall. There’s only one catch: To receive my inheritance, I have to get married within s

I couldn't connect with the characters and their relationship because the heroine literally just got out of a long-term relationship a few hours before meeting the hero. She said she loved her ex-boyfriend, so I just wasn't convinced she'd fall so easily for a different person that fast.

I also didn't like the hero. He acted mean and cold to the heroine whenever he wanted to distance himself because he didn't want to act on his lust. It's like a hot-cold situation with this man. He also

I love the fake relationship trope. It is one of favorite kind of reads and I gobble up all of the ones I come by. So when I came by this one I requested it and couldn't wait to read it.

Fake Wife was a quick OK read for me. There wasn't anything about it that really drew me in nor was there anything that I really disliked about the book. It had some good characters with a mediocre story. There wasn't a lot happening. There is some family dysfunction, a lot of back and forth, and of cou

4 Nothing Fake About it Stars

To say Teagan Monroe has had a crappy day would be the understatement of the century. Being laid off from the job she loves would be bad enough, but Teagan gets an even bigger shock to her already overwrought system when she comes home early to find her boyfriend of seven years playing hide the salami with a naked blonde. Suddenly homeless and jobless, what else could possibly go wrong for our gal Teagan?

Despite the fact Corbin Lane grew up wealthy and in the limelig

The reading of the will for Corbin's grandmother was not what he was expecting. Get married within 6 months, stay married for 2 years and he will receive the house and land that he has always loved. If he doesn't, it all goes to his father. That is the last thing Corbin wants because he knows his father will sell the property to be torn down and parceled out.

Teagan has had one of the worst days of her life. She gets laid off from her job, only to come home early and find her long time fiancee i

Give me a present day marriage of convenience trope any day of the week! Corbin is a super wealthy, playboy guy who just lost his grandmother. She was important to him, as his father is a horrible man who has a family on the side and his mother is drinking herself to death. His grandmother left him her family estate - but with a condition. He must marry within six months and stay married for at least two years. Corbin knows his grandmother wants him to have someone serious in his life, but he is ...more

Charming and incredibly diverting, Fake Wife is the epitome of a heartfelt and romantic love story!

After reading Filthy Player, I was instantly intrigued with the author. So reading Fake Wife was a no-brainer. The author takes the story of the prototypical fake relationship and makes it 100% her own. Apart from the steamy and erotic aspects, the book exudes a gamut of emotions within it’s pages. From heartbreak to happiness, sorrow to success, loneliness to love, each scene is marked with impass

Don't let the title fool you, this was essentially a really sweet and tender romance.
One that I enjoyed from start to finish.
I really liked Teagan she was a kind, honest person and was definitely having a very bad day when she meets Corbin for the first time.
Even though Teagan was at fault for causing the accident where she ran into his car, Corbin treated Teagan with such kindness at the scene, not blaming her or shouting at her.
Corbin's kindness was not just because he realizes that

Who better to be your fake wife than a woman who lost her job, boyfriend, and home in the same day? Or maybe the woman you meet when she rear ends your car?

What if they were the same woman? This scene really sets the tone for the story. The situations, and the things that happen are just enough to keep you engaged without ever making you feel that it went too far.

BOOK REVIEW: 3.5 STARS

It’s been so long since I read a book from Stacey and I have to say that I missed it more than I expected. Her Fireside series scarred me for life and became one of my favorite series. An amazing combination of heart wreck and heart warmth. The river of emotions that was flowing out of it was incredibly overwhelming and her writing made it even more so. This time, though, she kept the emotions in a check which was a enjoyable

While the relationship may have started as something fake, the tension and affection that rose up between Corbin and Teagan during their staged courtship was oh so real. These two were sweet and adorable, and I couldn’t help but love this story.

It’s an old trope. Guy has some reason why he needs to get married, guy finds perfect prospective fake wife, fake wife and guy fall in love while pretending to be engaged. There’s no surprise to this story, but the novelty of it is not why I enjoyed it so

Fake Wife by Stacey Lynn is a sweet and romantic read.

I really enjoyed this book, I liked both Corbin and Teagan's characters. They made me smile and they made me swoon with their romance.
Their relationship might have started out a business agreement but it doesn't take long for both to start having feelings for each other. They had an easy rapport, which made it easy opening up to each other and finding what they've been missing in life.
Love and understanding.

It was sweet but if we're being real? It wasn't anything new.
I mean, obviously it's a well used trope, I've read a lot of the same so when I say new, I don't mean it lacked originality cause that's pretty much a given for the type, I mean I wasn't gushing and calling everyone and their mothers and shoving the book down their throats....

Sissy's Romance Book Review
Fake Wife by Stacey Lynn is the story of Corbin Lane and Teagan Monroe .
Corbin has most everything he has ever wanted but his grandmother was the only one who really cared for him. When she passes she leaves him her house and land....that is the one thing he has always desired! But he quickly learns that there is a catch to the will....he must marry with six moths and that marriage must last at least two years. A relationship commitment is something Corbin has never wanted or done with a women.

Very sweet story with enough angst for them to grow together. I really enjoyed reading this.

This book was filled with the right amount of angst/drama. The chemistry and banter between Corbin and Teagan was very well written. This was a sweet sexy read that had me turning the pages and not wanting to put it down.
