My Thoughts

My question to the author would be if she was a teensy bit inspired by Colin Firth as Mr. Darcy in BBC’s Pride and Prejudice? Because, I really got that vibe and loved it - ❤️❤️❤️❤️ 

And Lina is the most completely (sometimes infuriatingly) clueless woman in the world and it’s the better for us, because we get this adorable, frustratingly in love but can’t see it character and Daniel who has a lot of hidden depth. 

On the one hand, this was hot and loooooong and just the swooniest, slowburniest romance that I’ve read in a while. 

On the other, it’s not perfect - I found some of the romantic scenes clunky, sometimes Lina’s denseness was just too much and I wanted to try and smack some sense into her for not seeing what everyone else does. 

But I found myself smiling at this story more often than not, really did enjoy it for the most part (excepting the parts I wrote about just above) and I am absolutely planning on reading this author’s future works.

A TikTok sensation, this rom-com about a young woman who agrees to fake date a colleague and bring him to her sister’s wedding has “everything you could want in a romance” (Helen Hoang, New York Times bestselling author).

Catalina Martín desperately needs a date to her sister’s wedding. Especially since her little white lie about her American boyfriend has spiralled out of control. Now everyone she knows—including her ex and his fiancée—will be there and eager to meet him.

She only has four weeks to find someone willing to cross the Atlantic and aid in her deception. New York to Spain is no short flight and her raucous family won’t be easy to fool.

Enter Aaron Blackford—her tall, handsome, condescending colleague—who surprisingly offers to step in. She’d rather refuse; never has there been a more aggravating, blood-boiling, and insufferable man.

But Catalina is desperate, and as the wedding draws nearer, Aaron looks like her best option. And she begins to realize he might not be as terrible in the real world as he is at the office.
