An absolute unalloyed joy. Zaf is a cinnamon-roll ex rugby player (a flanker! you don't get many of them to the pound) who hides the kindest possible heart under a gruff and sweary exterior, and reads romance novels. Dani is a workaholic with limited people skills. The pair of them do the classic tropes of fake relationship and 'a month's shagging to get it out of our systems' in the full knowledge of how implausible and ridiculous those things are to do. There is joyous laugh out loud banter, loads of feels, delightful writing, a pacy story with a fair bit of angst but no threat or menace, just two people working out how to work together. And there's even the most impassioned, moving, eloquent defence of reading romance I've ever encountered.

This might be Talia's best book, which is saying something. I read this while having a pretty hard time, and it made me feel infinitely better, which is exactly what romance is for. Loved it.
