Where did THIS come from? This short little story was a surprising delight that I could not stop reading.

I haven't read that many romance novels, or novellas (full disclosure, I'm a man, and yes, the cover made me uncomfortable), but I've always enjoyed the genre, specifically romcoms. My problem with most contemporary romance stories is that they try too hard to be cute, the dialogue feels unnatural and stilted, and the contemporary never feels all that contemporary. Worse, the men are either two-dimensional and too good to be true, or too moody, angry or obnoxious in the beginning so they can keep their distance throughout the novel. This book was so different, so refreshing and absolutely engaging.

On the negative side, and the reason it earned only 4 stars instead of the five the author will certainly get with more experience and a better editor, there are flaws in the writing. Things happened too fast, almost to the point of making it unbelievable (Kipling gets involved in Cody's scheme far too easily for me, and I don't have his much more obvious reasons to be cautious), and the ending wraps up too soon--especially given that this is a little about the acting world and it's notoriety for fast and failed relationships. Also, Ms. Fisher needs to invest in a good thesaurus--too many repeat words, or variations on those words, often in consecutive sentences, neighbor's, neighbor, himself, himself, amusement, amused--to the point that it becomes noticeable and mildly annoying, but the characters are so charming and fun that you push past the flaws and ride with it anyway, because this little story is a gem. Once those minor flaws get buffed out, stand back; Ms.

I downloaded this book free so the only thing that I really wasted was my time. Based on the positive reviews I figured that it would be a nice diversion on a long commute home from work. However I spent my time slightly annoyed and perplexed to the point where I skimmed the book rather than read it fully. I found the main character very... childish and silly... not to mention the many annoying times she said "Isn't it Romantic" when there was (***SPOILER***) NOTHING romantic about convincing a guy to pose as a fake husband then bulling the man into doing everything that she asked- even though he was doing her the favor. She was unsympathetic to his "allergy" to dogs and within one day already tried to change him into her picturesque dream guy. I found it to be a complete mystery that he would fall in love with her so quickly and that, with such an overbearing father, she would even bother pretending to have a husband just to make him happy. What was supposed to be zany and humorous was silly and sophomoric. I am sorry that I did not listen to the negative review. So...was it awful? No. But I will not be reading another Ellen Fisher book.

This is a short, light romance that I totally enjoyed. The characters were very appealing, and I found myself transported into the story, with everything happening to me. I'm sure I'll be reading this book again!

Kipling Stanton fell into acting and became a Hollywood star. When the science fiction television show he starred in ended it's run, he left the celebrity life for a quieter existence in a small town in Virginia where he could be himself without all the celebrity hoopla. His hopes for a quieter life are quickly dashed, however. Not because the paparazzi find him - that would be far to...normal. No, Kip's hopes for some peace and quiet are disrupted by a foxy redheaded neighbor with a fine butt and a propensity for asking strangers to marry her. Cody doesn't really want to get married, but her father told her he's desperately sick. He's going to be visiting for a week and she sort of told him she'd gotten married to ease his mind about her, and now she's one husband short and about to be another big disappointment. Kipling is good looking, and most importantly, convenient, so Cody jumps on the chance to ask him this monumentally large...and patently insane favor as they meet for the first time over the hedge between their properties.

Kip, wary of women throwing themselves at him, is convinced Cody's either crazy or manipulating him, but Cody's harmless. She's a romantic. A dreamer. And she has no idea that she just pseudo proposed to the star of a beloved television show. All she knows is she's very attracted to him, and apparently, he's just as attracted to her. Isn't it romantic?

Honestly, it really isn't. In fact, the premise of this contemporary romance novella is more than a little corny. Perhaps if it had been longer and there had been more time to introduce Kip and Cody to each other before Cody pops the question it would have had a different tone, but as it is, it seems a bit too rushed and silly to be realistic.

I surprisingly enjoyed this story! It was short, sexy and thoughtful. The characters were believeable and I thought it was "romantic" ;)

The cover is very misleading. A Half nude African American male is featured on the cover...much to my surprise the story is about a blond male and red head female. The story is okay,but the cover....Isn't It Deceiving?
