ABOUT THE BOOK:

According to the guys at Fairfield Academy, there are two types of girls: the kind you hook up with, and the kind you’re friends with. Seventeen-year-old Alyssa Reed is the second type. And she hates it. With just one year left to change her rank, she devises a plan to become the first type by homecoming, and she sets her sights on the perfect date—Justin Carter, Fairfield Academy’s biggest hottie and most notorious player.With 57 days until the dance, Aly launches Operation Sex Appeal and sheds her tomboy image. The only thing left is for Justin actually to notice her. Enter best friend Brandon Taylor, the school’s second biggest hottie, and now Aly’s pretend boyfriend. With his help, elevating from “funny friend” to “tempting vixen” is only a matter of time.

But when everything goes according to plan, the inevitable “break up” leaves their friendship in shambles, and Aly and Brandon with feelings they can’t explain. And the fake couple discovers pretending can sometimes cost you the one thing you never expected to want.

Synopsis:

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!

Rachel Harris Bio:Rachel Harris

Rachel Harris grew up in New Orleans, where she watched soap operas with her grandmother and stayed up late sneak reading her mama’s favorite romance novels. Now a Cajun cowgirl living in Houston, she still stays up way too late reading her favorite romances, only now, she can do so openly. She firmly believes life’s problems can be solved with a hot, powdered-sugar-coated beignet or a thick slice of king cake, and that screaming at strangers for cheap, plastic beads is acceptable behavior in certain situations.

When not typing furiously or flipping pages in an enthralling romance, she homeschools her two beautiful girls and watches reality television with her amazing husband. Taste The Heat is her adult romance debut. She’s the author of MY SUPER SWEET SIXTEENTH CENTURY and A TALE OF TWO CENTURIES. She loves hearing from readers! Find her at www.RachelHarrisWrites.com.
