My Rating:

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5 stars


Some facts are indisputable. The sun rises in the east, sets in the west. Gravity exits. Indira doesn’t like Jude. Jude doesn’t like Indira. But what happens when these childhood enemies find the only thing they can rely on is each other? On paper, Indira has everything together. An amazing job, a boyfriend, and a car. What more could a late twenty-something ask for? But when she walks in on her boyfriend in an amorous embrace with a stranger, that perfect on paper image goes up in flames. Jude has nothing together. A doctor that’s spent the last three years traveling the world to treat emergencies and humanitarian crises, a quick trip home for his best friend’s wedding has him struggling to readjust. Thrust into an elaborate (and ridiculously drawn out) wedding event that’s stressing Jude beyond belief and has Indira seeing her ex and his new girlfriend far more frequently than any human should endure, the duo strike a bargain to be each other’s fake dates to this wedding from hell. The only problem is, their forced proximity and fake displays of affection are starting to feel a bit… real, and both are left grappling with the idea that a situation that couldn’t be worse, is made a little better with the other around. What starts out as a fake wedding date turns into something these childhood enemies never expected in the next sparkling romantic comedy by Mazey Eddings.

My Thoughts:

This is the second Mazey Eddings book I have gotten through NetGalley and this is the second time I have thoroughly enjoyed her work. This book had both a light-hearted rom-com feel all while touching on some more serious subjects such as mental health, PTSD and more.

I loved the slight overlap of characters from the other book but also being able to read this as a standalone as well. But it does make it fun to hear what the other friends and their significant others are up to. This book had a LOT of tropes in it but they all came together in the best way.

There is just enough steamy scenes in this along with some great plot points that made it enjoyable over all. This one earned a 4-star rating from me. I loved the characters and the story was super cute over all. I would recommend this for readers who want a rom-com that has a more serious side to it as well.

Big thanks to St. Martin's Press , Mazey Eddings and NetGalley for providing me with a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
