Title: Fake Wife
Author: Stacey Lynn
Publication Date: January 9, 2018
Genre: Romantic Comedy
My rating: 3 of 5 stars


This marriage is strictly business… until the temptation gets way too real.

Corbin: I loved my grandma, but I don’t need her money. All I care about is keeping the house — the only place that’s ever felt like home. That, and screwing over my dad, who wants to turn the property into a mall. There’s only one catch: To receive my inheritance, I have to get married within six months. Me, the guy who’s never dated a girl for more than six minutes. Now I need to find a woman I can trust. So when I’m rear-ended by a Prius, I figure it’s a sign that I’m supposed to meet gorgeous, down-to-earth Teagan Monroe.

Teagan: First I lose my job. Then I come home and find out — in the most graphic way possible… yeah, that way — that my boyfriend is a cheating jerk. And then I speed off and nearly kill Portland’s sexiest bachelor. Corbin Lane should be pissed. Instead, he offers me more money than I’ve ever seen in my life to marry him and live together in a mansion for two years. No sex. No feelings. Just cash — enough to make all my dreams come true. Then we go and break all our rules… and I realize I’m falling in love with my fake fiancé.


review-lips copy

I am not familiar with this author and loved the blurb so I took a chance hoping to find a new to me author to love. I liked the writing style and low drama, but the characters were not entirely likeable. I really liked Corbin. He is a pretty down to earth guy with a few issues, nothing too bad. But… I was not a fan of Teagan. I found her to be immature and not too smart for a 27 year old.

There were a couple of aspects (one being her obsession with equine therapy) that also didn’t make sense as is. Maybe if they were elaborated on it would have fit better.

Overall, this book had great potential, but fell a little flat in the end for me. However, I will not hesitate to pick up another book by this author. Maybe the next book will be just what I’m looking for.
