THE ACCIDENTAL GIRLFRIEND - DRAFT1 (1).jpg

 

THE ACCIDENTAL GIRLFRIEND - DRAFT1 (1).jpgTop Tip: Don’t put out an online ad offering your services as a fake date. Someone will take you up on it.

And it won’t just be for one night.

And that, ladies and gentlemen, is how I ended up being Mason Jackson’s fake girlfriend.

He didn’t even want me to be. No—his sister was solely responsible for me being his date for his ten-year high school reunion.

Now, she’s responsible for telling his parents our relationship is real.

We have no choice. We have to act like this isn’t all a mistake, like it’s not all fake, like we’re totally, completely, utterly, head-over-heels in love with each other.

Simple, right?

Wrong.

This latest offering from Emma Hart is a truly entertaining read. Full of witty banter and sarcastic jibes with a lot of attitude you will totally enjoy this one.

Lauren Green a bartender has been single for a while and her friends are dying for her to get some action. With her demanding and dramatic family, she thinks she has more than enough on her plate and is happy to spend her evenings quietly watching TV and keeping her cat, Henry, company. One drunken night with the girls managed to convince her to put out an ad as a fake girlfriend. Surprise, surprise! When she meets Mason, things get more interesting.

After his girlfriend of six years cheated on him, Mason Jackson is quite happy to remain single for a long time until his meddling sister answered Lauren’s ad and got him a fake girlfriend for his school reunion. It started as a fake date but he finds himself having some real feelings on Lauren.

Told from dual points of view, this light-hearted romance is full of funny quips and humorous banter; it is packed with quirky, witty and hilarious characters. There is no dull moment with Lauren and every line she utters will either make you giggle or laugh out loud. I love her strong persona, ballsy attitude and oozing confidence, girl power to the max!

Mason is the perfect match for Lauren even though he was a bit emotionally disconnected at first, but her charming and feisty ways won him in the end. It’s not only Mason and Lauren who provides the laughter in this book; Henry the cat, is a hoot and Mason’s family members are an odd bunch of people but somewhat lovable. It is a wild and wonderful world when you join in on the Jackson family get-togethers. I would have preferred to have a strong antagonist to give this book more bite as Mason’s ex-girlfriend hardly makes a dent on the story but all in all, their love story will keep you in stitches. This romcom is a sure winner.

“I’ve seen you eat nothing but junk. Are you one of those irritating people who can eat what they want and put on no weight?”

“Okay, first.” I held up one finger. “You look like you could walk into the cast of the Avengers, so don’t come at me with that. Also, I run. Every day. And I don’t always eat junk.”

“You run?” His eyebrows shot up.

“I don’t know if I should be insulted or not.”

“No, I just—you don’t look like a runner.”

“And you don’t look like Chris Hemsworth, but here you are on my sofa looking like a dark-haired Norse god,” I shot back. “What’s your point?”

He held up his hands, fighting another laugh, one that made his eyes shine. “Hey, I have a physical job. I rarely get to the gym, but I’m always moving.”

“Have you ever worked behind a bar? I’m not exactly running a call center back there. It never stops sometimes.”

“Do I look like I mix cocktails?”

Doing what he’d done just minutes before, I took a long, hard look at him, from head to toe.

It was a mistake.

If I were a sloth, I wouldn’t just climb him like a tree; I’d hang off him for a nap, too. 

Lord, he was hot.

Focus, Lauren.

“No,” I said. “You look like the lone wolf who waits for the cocktail-drinking girls to accidentally spill their drinks on your shoes.” I glanced at the time. “Speaking of, I have to go and make those cocktails.”

Mason grinned. “You want me to come and get hit on by drunk girls?”

“As someone who has no say in your life whatsoever, I don’t care what you do.” I stood up and looked at him over my shoulder. “As your fake girlfriend, I’m a bit of a tiger, so I wouldn’t.”

“I know.” He snorted, following me to the front door with his laptop tucked under his arm. “I’ve seen you play the possessive girlfriend. If this weren’t all fake, I would have been a little turned on.”

I locked the front door and tossed my hair over my shoulder. “Please. You were totally turned on.”

He said nothing as we headed for the stairs. 

“You can say something. That was a joke.” I glanced at him, heat rushing to my cheeks.

His lips pulled into a smirk, eyes flashing. “I reserve the right to not respond.”
