This was my first book by Leddy Harper, and I really enjoyed her writing style, the story was different than other “fake relationship” plots and I really liked that in the book. Nothing happened as I expected. Jason was my favorite character, and his family too. They were all too funny. Tatum was a good character, but a lot of her lies could have been avoided, and some parts just irritated me. But the ending was cute. If you like the no-strings-attached relations ...more

A fake romance that blossoms into something more, but is it enough.
This book was so good! I really loved "Jay" and Tatum as a couple! I enjoyed how instead of forcing something they didn't want, they eased into it with friendship and amazing sex!!
Unfortunately, this book missed the mark for me. The plot was messy and boring, the dialogue was flat, and the characters (primary and secondary) did not have chemistry. I think the lack of chemistry was due in large part to the immaturity and lack of positive qualities of the protagonist, Tatum, as well as the equally obnoxious secondary characters at her work (the restaurant) ...more
