They are all read and stand alones and it doesn’t matter what order. I’ve found those at my library!
This one was not my favorite. There were parts of it that I really liked. I liked both Carson and Ella, but I didn’t really feel their chemistry. I felt like it was forced, even though it was a “fake-fiance” trope which I normally really love, I just didn’t feel it. I didn’t hate it either, so I’m left lingering in lukewarm land. I hate lukewarm land
Carson is engaged to Kendra as part of a business deal with her father but they don’t really want to get married. Enter Ella and trying to convince Gregory Shaw that her and Carson belong together. I really wish I had liked it (or hated it, damn-it).
This is the first book I’ve read by Shayla Black, and I’m going to read another one. I’m just not sure what it was about this one that I didn’t click with.

I was at the library looking for a book by another author, and this caught my eye. So, I grabbed the three books in the series.
Being plus sized myself, I love the idea around plus size romance novels, but a lot of time the execution is way off. It’s usually a “plus size girl” who is really a Size 10 with big tits. Or, it turns into some weird fetish stuff (and I mean WEIRD). FYI: I have never put food in my vagina.
Back to the book: After a series of misunderstandings, Sam has to pretend to be Leah’s fiance for a weekend getaway with her family. I found the whole weekend and interaction with her family hilarious! At that point he’s trying to offend her family so that Leah will break off the “engagement”, but it’s so funny that there’s not that cringing that normally comes along with setups like that. Alison did a fantastic job of really making it a rom-com and not just embarrassing.
I like the way Sam stands up to Leah’s mom. She is a nitpicker and constantly hurts Leah’s feelings (all lovingly- like that’s an excuse). I loved that he straight up told her to back the fuck off – which is good, because I wanted to slap her too! I have friends who have momma’s like her, and I wanna slap them – Another FYI: You’re not allowed to slap your friends’ parents! ha.. I lucked out in the momma department. I’ve never had to worry about shit like that. But damn, that’ll fuck up your self-esteem!
I like Sam and Leah together. I love their banter. Their chemistry is hot! There’s lots of Sam that remind me of my husband, so I can’t help but love him. ❤
I love that there is a plus-size, rom-com, fake-fiancee book that I can enjoy! My favorite things rolled into a single book! I’m gonna be looking for more!
