Today is the release day of Seven Day Fiancé! I was lucky enough to get an ARc so I will share my review with you today and some information about the book and the author.
Seven Day Fiancé (Love and Games #2)
by Rachel Harris
Blurb: 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.
I got a copy in exchange for an honest review
I really like rachel Harris her writing style, I basically read this book in 3 sittings, because as soon as I sat down with it I wanted to keep reading, but I also had a few issues with this book and actually the main plot is one of them. So 3.5 stars for this boook, I am rounding it up because of the writing style and the keep-reading-feel.
My main issue with this book is the story, I absolutely hate lying and lying to a whole town about a fiancé is like a super big lie. I just can’t understand how she could lie to her whole family about this and this is the one thing that made this book less enjoyable for me. I jsut couldn’t wrap my around this and couldn’t understand how she could lie about something this big to a whole town. Okay so now that’s out of the way let’s get to the better parts of this review.
In Tasting the Heat I thought we learned too less about Cane, he is the brother of the main character, but there is very little we get to know about him. In this book he is the main character and I couldn’t wait to read more about him and get to know him better. Angelle was a great character too which we already met in the first book and I also was curious about getting to know her better. And on those fronts this book certainly delivered. There is a lot more depth to both characters than what we got to see in the first book and I liked both characters. Although both character do something so stupid in this book, Angelle the part about making up a fake fiancé and Cane’s big stupid mistake I am not going to mention.
There where parts I really enjoyed and also some parts I didn’t There are some scenes at like 3/4 of the book that I didn’t like and I hate it that every romance book I read seem to contains something like this lately. I really liked the setting and it really makes me want to visit Cajun country and experience it for myself. I love the focus on food and the country people we get to meet in this book. There are some great side characters we meet in this book and I am already wondering who the next book will be about.
To conclude: I really enjoyed this book, Rachel her writing style is really good and I wanted to keep reading this book. I have some issues with the main plit of this book, because I hate lying and lying about a fiancé is a really big lie. I did like getting to know Angelle and Cane better and I liked both charcters, beside their stupid mistakes.
