She wants a fake relationship. He needs something real.

If there’s one thing Rae can’t stand, it’s pity. She’s forty, frazzled, and fed up—so attending an awards ceremony alonewhile her ex swans about with his new wife? Not an option. To avoid total humiliation, Rae needs a date of her own. And her young, hot-as-hell new best friend is the perfect candidate…

Zach Davis, king of casual hookups, has a secret: the notorious womaniser craves emotional connection, and anonymous encounters leave him feeling hollow. After years of performance, Zach’s desperate to be himself. So why does he agree to play Rae’s fake boyfriend? And why does it feel so easy?

When the line between pretence and desire blurs, Zach’s forced to face an unexpected truth: there’s nothing phoney about his need for Rae. But the jaded divorcĂ©e’s been hurt by playboy men before. Can a weekend of faking it prove that Zach’s for real?

I saw another blogger rave about this book, so despite not reading the other books in this series, I decided to give it a go. I don't read a lot of books that have the older woman, younger man trope, but I kinda of loved it in this one. Also! Fake relationship! You know I love that! I definitely want to go back and read the other books in the series, and check out more from this author.

I like to read more books that have diversity and more books that have different types of sexualities represented. So I was glad to find both in this book. Rae is a black woman, and Zach is a man who identifies as demisexual. I have to admit that I didn't know that much about demisexual prior to reading this book. I did a little research afterward, and I like to think the author did a good job with the representation. I don't want to completely say that though, because as a person that does not identify this way, I can't speak to that.

I did struggle a little bit with this, because like in other romances there was the breakup and he was killing both of them! Like, hello you two idiots, just go talk to each other and tell each other how you feel! I feel strongly about this thing in romance books lately.

I definitely really enjoyed this one, I'm going to looking out for more books by Talia Hibbert in the future!
