The Art of Falling in Love with Your Fake Fiancé by Anne Kemp: Book Review

  *Book received for consideration. All thoughts are my own.

All’s fair in love and war…until you agree to be your best friend’s fake fiancé.

Levi: Life as an NFL player has always been fast-paced, but nothing prepared me for becoming the guardian of my godson, Duncan. With his grandmother contesting custody, I need to prove that I’m a steadfast influence who’s not going anywhere and there’s one sure-fire way to show that: get engaged.

With my not-so-secret crush Georgie on board to play the part, we tell ourselves it’s a practical solution. But when I see her connection with Duncan, I see a different side of her that I didn’t know existed and I only want more. Could this fake engagement be the real deal?

Georgie: When my best friend needs a fake fiancé to prove he's a stable guardian for his godson, I jump at the chance. Does it help that I also have a huge crush on him? Probably…but now, as our fake relationship blurs the line between reality and what’s pretend, I start wondering if this charade could lead to something more.

Then the unthinkable happens. A huge misstep on my part, thanks to my big mouth, leads to a major slip-up and I manage to jeopardize everything––including his custody battle. Will this mistake cost me the chance at true love I’ve been waiting for?

The Art of Falling in Love with Your Fake Fiancé is a fake relationship, friends to lovers, found family, closed door romcom with no third act break up...and a Rottweiler named Toto. Chemistry, swoony kisses, and tension collide in this small town romance!

Content warning: This IS a lighthearted and fun romantic comedy, but there are subjects mentioned in this book like parents passing away, foster family upbringing, and a guardianship battle over a ten-year-old.

Anne Kemp is a bestselling author of romantic comedies. She loves reading (and she does it ridiculously fast, too!), gluten-free baking (because everyone needs a hobby that makes them crazy), and finding time to binge-watch her favorite shows. She grew up in Maryland but made Los Angeles her home until she encountered her own real-life meet-cute at a friend's wedding where she ended up married to one of the groomsmen. For real.

Anne now lives on the Kapiti Coast in New Zealand, and even though she was married at Mt. Doom, no…she doesn’t have a Hobbit. However, she and her husband do have a terrier named George Clooney and when she’s not writing, she’s usually with them taking a long walk on the river by their home.

 The Art of Falling in Love with Your Fake Fiancé is the fifth book in the Sweetkiss Creek series. While you'll definitely see some familiar characters make appearances, I do think this could be enjoyed as a standalone as well. 

I have absolutely adored every single book in this series so far... but I definitely have a new favorite in this one! To say that Georgie's first introduction to Duncan- Levi's godson whom he's been made guardian of after his parents' passing- was awkward would be putting it mildly! It drew me in right away and set the tone for the rest of the story. Duncan played such a huge part of this story and I loved that this was not JUST a romance between Levi and Georgie, but also the healing and start of a new family for him. While the romance was great and I adored these two together, it was definitely that family aspect that really had me falling in love with these characters and their story more. They definitely make some mistakes along the way, but I love the growth throughout. While the story was overall lighthearted and fun (Georgie's actions as a fake fiancé had me laughing out loud!), it took on some tougher issue like loss of a parent, foster homes, etc. that really made it a more tender and heartwarming read... and one that I absolutely adored! 

The Art of Falling in Love with Your Fake Fiancé is a closed-door romance with kisses only. It does have just a bit of minor language.
