(Yeap, you got me, I’m watching Shaun of the dead for 246th time!) Fake charming firefighter fiancée, a cute social media influencer suffering from eating disorder join a cruise trip with the girl’s entire family who are successful members of society with impressive interrogation skills and intimidating manners and let’s add fake fiancée’s crowded, noisy, prying but also lovely, genuine, friendly Cuban family to the equation Did you get interested? I certainly did Luis take one week forced leave from his work, after a big argument with his brother, storms out from his office and bumps into Sara having a volatile argument with her boyfriend on the phone who stands her up for meeting with her family at their cruise trip Sara’s mother recovering from big C which means she doesn’t needstress in her life by worryingabout her daughter’s love interest and her siblings are already judgmental about her occupation (they don’t consider “instagram influencer” as a real job) and her past relationships and now she has to face them alone Luis is concerned about her breakdown and as they resume their conversation, Sara comes with an offer to help them both: ( Mostly for herself, because Luis can do anything to spend his time for his one week leave) She offers him acting like her fiancée in exchange she’ll make donation for firefighters foundation (At first she offered him money but you may imagine our too proud and good hearted hero rejected it.) So they shake hands and start their pretending relationship as you may imagine, it turns into a real one The strengths of the story:Couple’s sweet, hot chemistry, witty bantersMeeting with Navarro (Luis’ big family)Family! (The sequel about to come with another family member)Romantic, sweet escapades, secret kissesThe author’s way to handle such an important health issue: “eating disorder” realistically without over dramatization Both characters’ past demons and the way they slowly destroy the barriers and come clean about the secrets.The weaknesses of the story:The beginning was too fast and the way of starting their fake relationship was too coincidental Luis acted like stubborn and immature at the ending parts and his beef with his brother was a little illogical He is not the one to be blamed And I agree Sara’s sister at one point: he had to grovelfor winning Sara’s heart back!!!Overall: Sweet, cute chiclit and great escapade for your lockdown days! 3.5 stars rolling up to 4! (It could be 3 starred Switzerland reading but Navarro family members already stole my heart!)Special thanks to NetGalley and Kensington to share this entertaining ARC in exchange my honest review.bloginstagramfacebooktwitter This writing style was not for me It was too repetitive and the set up of the fake dating was too quick for me to suspend my disbelief DNF’d at 15%. You know how in every chicklit book in the early 2000s, the heroine was the PA to some ballbusting bitch in marketing?I think social media influencer is the new goto career for the floundering modern woman.
