Madi doesn’t have time to date. Oliver has all the time in the world.
When wedding photographer Madi is challenged to find herself ten dates in three months, she turns to her older brother’s three best friends to be her stand-ins. It helps her win the challenge without having to deal with the stress of dating. What could go wrong?
Oliver hasn’t had much to do since selling his company, and helping Madi has given his life meaning again. But when she asks him to pose as her boyfriend—more than just a date here and there—he suddenly finds himself questioning his feelings toward the girl he always saw as a little sister. Feelings that would get him murdered by his best friend.
No one sees the real Oliver the way Madi does, and Madi has never been as comfortable around anyone as she is with Oliver. With the fake part of their relationship feeling less and less fake, they both have to decide if they’re brave enough to take that first step toward something real. Is a chance at love worth risking a lifetime of friendship?
Cute, cute, cute, cute. This book is honestly just so cute (and so is the cover!! 😍). Author Dana LeCheminant really nailed this friends to lovers story between Oliver and Madi who have known each other since they were little. Both Oliver and Madi are gentle people who keep feelings and difficulties close to themselves. They aren't loud or showy, but steady and wicked good at what they do. I really loved them both- separately and together, as friends and then as more. My heart was seriously chanting all the hopeful things, "risk it! Do it! Kiss her!" You get the idea. 😉
I think one of my favorite scenes was when Oliver was running in a park and saw Madi doing a photoshoot. He watches her and then gets caught so he pretends to be stretching. He was trying to play it so cool. It played out in my head like a scene in a movie.
Good news! This is the first book in a new series. We are introduced to the Wonder Boys in this book and man, their stories are going to be fun! I can't wait to read them!
This book is on KU if you have that.
