SEVEN DAY FIANCE
by Rachel Harris
Publisher: Entangled Bliss
E-Book, 211 pages
Angelle Prejean is in a pickle. Her family is expecting her to come home with a fiancé—a fiancé who doesn’t exist. Well, he exists, but he definitely has no idea Angelle told her mama they were engaged. Tattooed, muscled, and hotter than sin, Cane can reduce Angelle to a hot mess with one look—and leave her heart a mess if she falls for him. But when she ends up winning Cane at a charity bachelor auction, she knows just how to solve her fiancé problem.
Cane Robicheaux is no one’s prince. He doesn’t do relationships and he doesn’t fall in love. When sweet, sultry-voiced Angelle propositions him, he hopes their little game can finally get her out of his head. He doesn’t expect her to break through all his barriers. But even as Angelle burrows deeper into his heart, he knows once their seven days are up, so is their ruse.
My Review: (Thank you to Entangled for providing a review copy.)
I am a sucker for novels/movies with the “fake” fiancé theme. Each one puts their own twist to it, and Seven Day Fiancé is no exception.
Here are the things I loved about this novel:
1. The Louisiana setting and Cajun history and FOOD! The descriptions had my mouth watering. I hope, at some point, Rachel will post recipes. Doesn’t get better than that!
2. Cane Robincheaux is bad boy goodness. He may have the “look” but his heart is pure gold.
3. Angelle in all her clumsiness and sweet girl charm. I also loved that she knew what she wanted and didn’t want and had the strength to walk away from a situation that didn’t make her happy. (Read the book and you’ll understand.) I liked her very much.
4. Angelle’s overprotective family. It never felt like it was over the top. Always great to see a family that cares.
5. The chemistry between Cane and Angelle was definitely smokin’ and it wasn’t insta-lust, which I deeply appreciated. Both characters seemed to appreciate the other for more than just superficial good looks. I like that in a novel, because we all know that the majority of us don’t fall into that “super hot” category.
6. Loved the bachelor auction in the beginning of the novel. Angelle’s motivation for bidding on Cane and his response are awesome!
7. Like Harris’s YA novels, she creates vivid scenes and authentic, interesting characters.
Overall impression: Fake fiancé, romance, strong characters, great setting. If you like this combo, then you’ll definitely like Seven Day Fiancé!
