    That cover seems much cuter now that I ve read the book Just look at that snowman s face He looks a little bit naughty and a whole lot sweet, just like this story I love the fake boyfriend trope Luke was a total sweetheart, but Derek drove me crazy with his back and forth He was just so neurotic.The secondary characters were great both Luke and Derek had wonderful families This isn t a super steamy book, but the bathtub scene was hot Overall, this was a nice surprise perfect for a cold winter da [...]

    That s a sweet romance with a fake boyfriend trope a disabled firefighter trying to save the familial bar, tribute to all the firemen, meets a successful but insecure and anxious advertising executive.It s a fast read, full of cuteness And kudos for the cover this little snowman is not only adorable, it s also the perfect image of this fluffy romance Note for my Secret Santa thank you for this sweet gift that put a smile on my face 3

    This book is as cute as the snowman on its cover It s the perfect festive treat without being too sweet and it fixes on one of my favourite tropes done well the fake boyfriend.I loved Derek, he was such a study in contrasts, and his bumbling combined with his arrogance together added up into a vulnerable guy just looking for love.He found it quite by accident with Luke, our other MC Invalidated out from the fire service and with a weight of memories on his shoulders, Luke is perfect at pulling D [...]

    Love Happens Anyway has one of my all time favorite plots a pretend boyfriend, hired to stop questions from meddling parents, turning into so much than a temporary stopgap measure Not without obstacles, of course, and with many a misunderstanding and even some hurt feelings along the way, but the basic idea had me fascinated and enthusiastic before I even opened this book The fact that it is written by RJ Scott, one of my favorite authors, clearly had something to do with my excitement as well [...]

    I have to say my immediate thought on seeing this book was that it was one of the most adorable holiday cover ever After reading it and getting the connection, I can say it is the most adorable holiday cover ever.Derek is a definite contrast in personality He acts like a child to his parents sometimes he is arrogant with people other times he is a pushover with his friends at times he is miserable at a job that he loved He s a good person and he wants to do well but sometimes he s just not sure [...]

    This is a lovely holiday story Derek needs a boyfriend and Luke needs cash The fake boyfriend trope is one of my favorites and Ms Scott does this one to a tee Derek is a bit of a mess, and while Luke REALLY doesn t want to be a fake boyfriend for cash, he needs the money and Derek is adorable.There s a LOT of stuff jammed into this novella Both our MCs have family and work issues The secondary characters are terrific and I really like the moms Luke s sister and Derek s co worker are also faves O [...]

    I need to say something first this is one of the CUTEST book covers ever It was the cover that pulled me into reading this.I really liked Luke a real firefighter, a hero, limp and all, who s trying to gather enough money for his family s bar Can t really find anything NOT to like about him It was Derek that I had a hard time to understand I was puzzled with his attitude I thought it was because his parents were pushy But I didn t find it so Maybe Derek was just making a lot of things out of noth [...]

    From my experience, boyfriend for hire stories can either go very right or monumentally wrong Love Happens Anyway is one of those that goes right, with one pretty uptight guy Derek who hires one slightly broken but determined man Luke to act as his boyfriend during the holidays I loved, loved, loved Luke He s responsible, protective, strong and sexy but he s also in need of help in order to take care of his family s bar Derek is tired of what he feels is others trying to impose their will on his [...]

    I probably shouldn t review this one since it is dedicated to me blush but I loved it so much I can t resist sharing it with everyone.Can a fake for pay boyfriend become a real boyfriend And why does a man need a fake boyfriend For that matter, why would a man agree to become a fake boyfriend What s at stake here Just a lot of money, an old bar, a pushy mother, and two mens hearts That s all And that s quite enough.As the dedication says, even when there were obstacles in a relationship, whateve [...]

    So much fake boyfriend promise, but it turned out to be a bit of a slog in the end And the big reveal from fake to real wasn t as satisfying as I had hoped Neither was that epilogue, in which the view spoiler engagement hide spoiler happened off page.

    A Joyfully Jay review 3.75 starsThis is a pleasant and mild story about two people who just so happen to be in the right place at the right time during the ever so slightly magical season of Christmas They meet, they flirt, they fall in love, and then have to deal with the fall out of their fake relationship Fortunately for both of them, everyone loves a love story and the book ends with a Christmas cookie flavored happily ever after.Derek is slightly neurotic, a little tightly wound and has iss [...]

    I was given a copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads I m not one for cute and sweet and I usually avoid holiday romances but I really loved this It s a modern fairytale At its simplest, it s the story of an awkward CEO falling for an injured fireman But like any classic English romance, things aren t quite so simple.Luke is wonderful As readers, we don t know his secrets until we re a good ways into the story We know he isn t the escort he is pretending to be We know that he s sad [...]
