My Review

I received a free copy from the author through Booksprout and voluntarily reviewed it.

I am really enjoying this series so far and was excited when I saw this book on Booksprout. I got it and started reading shortly after. I really enjoyed Dating a Sun God, this one follows elf Hannah and sun god Ra as they meet through the Jinx dating app. It was fun to see these two meet through the dating app. I really liked these two together and it was a fun read.

I liked both Hannah and RA. Hannah is a hardworking lawyer who doesn’t have time or motivation to date, when she needs a date for her cousins wedding to ward off questions from family she decides to look for a fake date. Ra needs a date for a cruise he won at an auction and decides a fake date will work as well. Ofcourse their fake dating leads to real feelings and it was fun to read about these two and see them fall in love.

I don’t usually like the fake dating trope, but I actually liked how it was handled here. The reason they get together is a fake dating, but most of their connecting is clearly real and it it’s clear they aren’t pretending those moments. Their first kiss is because they want to, not to sell their ruse to an audience. There is a moment were I wished they actually talked to each other, but luckily it doesn’t drag on and gets resolved quite quickly.

I really liked the dynamic between these two. The way they started talking and were interested in getting to know each other was fun. I liked how they went into the fake dating both agreeing to it and how it’s the thing that brings them together. It is fun seeing them fall in love as they spend time together. I thought they made for a great couple and they were sweet together. I also thought the steamy scene between them was well written and felt realistic. My only complaint is that the ending felt a bit abrupt and I would’ve liked an epilogue.

I also liked seeing some of the characters from previous books as well as some characters that will play a role in future books. I liked how Ra and Min are friends, so we got to see them interact together from Ra’s perspective this time. It also was fun to read about Hannah and her best friend, the note at the end says Hannah’s friend will get her own romance in a later book.

To summarize: I really like this series so far and I had a lot of fun reading this book. I liked both Hannah and Ra and them together. I liked how the fake dating trope was handled here with the fake dating bringing them together, but their connection was clearly real and a lot of them growing closer scenes were when they were just the two of them and not performing their ruse. They were great together and I thought the steamy scene between them was well written. The ending felt a bit abrupt and I would’ve liked an epilogue. I look forward to the next book in the series.

  1. Aww…. fake dating is one of my favorite tropes (at least, I enjoy writing it). I’ll have to check this one out sometime.
