Fun friends first, fake to real #Romance – Red Velvet by Carla Luna

Faking it has never been so much fun…

In her ultra-competitive family, April Beckett is used to taking last place. For years, she’s put up with jabs about her modest job and her pathetic love life. Especially after she tried to impress her older sisters with a fake boyfriend in college and failed miserably. But now she has a smoking-hot date for her brother’s wedding, guaranteed to wow them.

Until he bails. Cue total desperation.

Without April’s friendship, Brody Blackwood wouldn’t have survived his last breakup. So, if she needs a plus-one for a family wedding, he’s all in. Even if it means pretending to be her boyfriend. And committing to six days of activities at a wooded resort in Wisconsin. But how hard could a relaxing getaway with your best friend be?

Too bad there’s a grueling 10K race and a cutthroat trivia night to endure. Not to mention a massive secret to protect. But will the biggest secret of all turn out to be that this fake relationship feels more real than April or Brody ever imagined?

My Review:

A delightful contemporary romance is this book
And hope you'll also give it a lovely long look.
Thanks for my copy of the story, too,
I enjoyed reading it and this is my honest review!

What a fun, contemporary romance this proved to be,
Involving both friends first and fake relationship as you'll see.
April Beckett's family is ultra competitive, its so true,
When her boyfriend scuppers her plans, what should she do?

Her brother's wedding and the week before
Was where they were due to go for fun and more.
However he cancels and lets her down
What's she to do to stop being made fun of, like a clown?

She calls Brody Blackwood, her best friend
And he agrees to go instead and pretend
However, six days of fooling her family may
Result in unexpected things coming into play.

Her older sisters are awful to April from the start
So Brody is determined to protect her - and his heart.
However, feeling grow and the fake feels real
Will they be able to resist the other's appeal?

With deception, family drama and so much more
This is a story of romance to adore.
With long held feelings, resentments and dreams
Nothing is quite as clear as it seems.
