This story has several little tropes woven in... the sister of a friend, the older guy/younger girl, the fake spouse. But it works so well, and doesn't fall into any sort of traps along the way. It is a simple, sweet, friends to lovers tale about free-spirited Cara and Toby, her sometimes mentor, who is also buddies with her older brother. Cara is under pressure from her Grandmother to marry, but she isn't feeling it, and has life plans that don't include a spouse. Toby is happy being single; but when Cara proposes that she find a stranger, maybe even an escort, to pretend-marry her to get her Grandmother off her case, he finds himself full of all sorts of disgruntled and unaccustomed feelings that lead him to recognize he's been seeing her as more than a friend for a long time; and while he eases into her everyday life one phone call and video chat at a time, she realizes that her feelings for him are more than a youthful crush, also.
I won't spoil the story by going into detail. But they are so delicious together, well-met and well-meshed. It is a positive thing for both of them that there was little push-back from her family in regard to their relationship, and I think that's because not only is Toby charming, he is already well-liked by her family from long acquaintance (though I'm sure they're keeping an eye on him!) Part of the Billionaire Secrets series, and has been expanded from its previous incarnation in a collection of novellas.
This is a very sweet, yet still very sexy, romance -- with such a likeable couple.
Cara is a bit bookish, and unsure of her own appeal, and it was sweet how she blossomed with Toby's help.
Toby is an absolute sweetheart, yet still very sexy. He is not the controlling jerk that you find in many billionaire romances. He was enough to make me give this book a good rating. It was so nice to see the h fall for a nice guy, and not a jerk.
One BIG plus for this book is there was no angst and no big misunderstanding to resolve. It drives me nuts when romances have a ton of unnecessary angst or some big misunderstanding, just to up the drama. I want to read about normal couples, who don't jump to conclusions before getting enough information. One perfect example of this was when Toby showed up as Cara's fake husband, and she doesn't automatically assume he has been lying to her.
This is a very sweet romance, yet has plenty of steam. I liked that the steamy scenes were vanilla, but still very sexy. Ever since Fifty Shades was such a hit, many romance authors seem to automatically think they need to include a lot of BDSM scenes -- but many readers like me prefer vanilla scenes.
Overall, I highly recommend this book. It is entertaining, features a great couple and a sweet romance, and has plenty of steam. It's also novella length, so it's good when you want a quick read.
I enjoyed the writing, the pace of the story, and the characters who swiftly moved from friends to lovers once Toby realised he might be losing Cara.
If you read the sample chapters here on Amazon, you’ll see the opening scene takes place on a train platform. Then the story rewinds to show us the lead up to the platform scene and then beyond it. Sounds dizzying, but it actually worked really well. The story is simple, but well done and I think that this writer hits the right notes for me to continue reading her novels. I’m reading this series out of order. But that doesn’t matter. I’ll next read Book 1, Personal Delivery (Billionaire Secrets Book 1) (it is currently FREE).
BY AINSLEY BOOTH
I love best friends to lovers books. Toby is willing to do anything to help Cara. Even if it means helping her hiring an escort. To fake a wedding to fool her meddling Grandma. What she didn’t know is that her escort is secretly Toby. What will Cara do when she finds out her escort is her best friend? Watching Toby and Cara fall in love with each other was fun and adorable. I can’t wait until Personal Disaster to see what happens with Toby’s friend Marcus.
