Twenty four year old Danni Gardener's ambition is to be a writer. Although talented, she receives one rejection letter after another from different publishers. Her best gay male friend and housemate, Josh, comes up with a solution. If Danni agrees to pretend to be his fiancée for one night, Josh will ask his father to use his publishing company to publish a book for her. What can go wrong? It's a win-win situation. Who can possibly be hurt?

Top notch, non fiction editor, Brooke Gibson, is tasked with working with Danni to get her book edited for publication. Brooke is having problems of her own. Her partner Megan is a commitment phobe and Brooke is fed up with her constant absences. Their relationship is not going at all well.

From the first time they meet, there is a strong and immediate attraction between Danni and Brooke. Unfortunately to all intents and purposes, Danni is engaged to Josh, the one night of pretence has turned out to be endless and Brooke is with Megan.

Will Danni reveal her true colors and tell Brooke the truth about her and Josh? Or will she go on letting Brooke think she's engaged and straight? Will Brooke throw caution to the wind and pursue a straight woman? Then there is Megan, what should Brooke do about her? Such a tangled web.

Another winner from Jade Winters. This book is well written and edited. A true lesfic chick-lit romance with a good dose of humor thrown in for good measure. A quick and fast paced page turner from start to finish.

The two main characters, Danni and Brooke are so obviously meant to be together. I immediately connected with them both. Although I found Josh to have Danni's best interests at heart, I did feel like slapping him for his cowardice. As for Megan, she's the character I love to hate in a book. Josh's dad also played an excellent part.

The way the story unfolded had me on the edge of my seat turning the pages so fast it's a wonder my ereader didn't catch fire. I'm going to have to re-read this book soon so that I can enjoy it at a more leisurely pace.

Although this is chick-lit, this story did have a more serious side to it too. There is lies, deceptions, angst and homophobia all entwined with a light hearted sense of humor. So, it's not all doom and gloom, but a very well thought out and put together work of art.

I've read all of Jade's books and with each one I can see her growth as a writer. In my honest opinion, I would rate her stories up there with the very best writers of lesbian fiction. I always, without exception, enjoy her work and eagerly look forward to her next book.

I read this book while on holiday and I could barely put it down to go out for dinner! The main characters, Danni and Brooke, are instantly likeable and you just want them to get together... and then there's Megan! What a brilliant, entertaining character! This book is really wonderfully written and edited and what really does it for me is the wit and humour which there is plenty of. Can't wait for the next book now!

I read this book almost in one go while recovering from a nasty virus. The story has an easy feel good factor, that holds your attention without being difficult to follow. Although you always know where the ending is going it still had the feel good factor when you eventually got there. This book was a very nice, warm fuzzy read.

A light-hearted chic lit novel that might keep you from going into the water if you took it to the beach with you - because you might not want to take it aside before you're finished.

A lovely (not yet) couple, a sweet gay friend, a dad, who is (wrongly?) being feared, and a con artist girlfriend. Lots of lies, lots of expectations, lots of entertaining reading hours. Did I mention the con artist girlfriend? Oh, you so might want to strangle her! Megan alone is already worth reading it ;-).

I was not disappointed with this book It grabbed me from the start with plenty of. Laughs along the way.

I loved the main characters Danni and Brooke, and of course their confidants Ethan and Josh. I would love to have friends like that. It was also nice that you are taken through the editing process from writing a book to publishing.

I thoroughly enjoyed the whit and wisdom that Jade brings to all her books.

Can't wait for the next book.

Jade winters is a fantastic author and this book proves it. It has you gripped from the very beginning and I fell in love with both characters instantly. it was wonderfully written, and had you laughing, and shouting out at them at times. I literally cannot wait for Jade's next novel, as I know it will be worth reading

What a rare gem - a genuinely funny lesbian novel. Once I started I couldn't put it down and by the end Josh and Danni felt like old friends. It is a great read - witty, heartwarming and engaging. Let's hope it turns into a Tales of the City type saga with many more instalments to follow!

Really sweet fun read - the pickle Danni gets herself into (and finds very difficult to get out of) is very entertaining. Light and fluffy and nicely done.
