The plot to this story was nothing short of alluring and sexy. It is exceptionally mapped out and executed and despite my love of dark romance, I loved that it was so buoyant and upbeat. The characters themselves were intriguing and you can't help but fall in love with them. Aaron was such a great alpha lead. Although he possesses tonnes charm, sex appeal and the awing ability to beguile you, he is nothing short of endearing, kind and caring. Don't get me wrong, he's an animal in the sack... no doubt about it! Jill, again was really well balanced. She gives as good as she gets and she doesn't cower away. I loved that she didn't put her sex life above all else, which was really refreshing. All too often the female lead forgets all else in life in favour of her alpha hero, I have to say that it was so refreshing to have a heroine that stuck to her guns and didn't give her reins over to a guy just because they were doing the horizontal tango together. I felt like this was really empowering and it made me REALLY love her character.
All in all, I wish that this book as a little longer. The pace was pretty steady throughout, but the ending I felt was a little rushed. I would've liked to have a bit more of an insight as to how they adapted to their life. However, that is the most I can criticise. I was sold from the moment I heard fake engagement/marriage plot line and this book really failed to disappoint. I will be reading Landing the Air Marshall STAT, as I haven't read the first book in the series. Although this is a standalone, I always like to acquaint myself with the rest of the series!
After a disastrous speed dating evening with her friends (and don't get me started on those frenemies), Jill thinks she is meeting one of her friends in her hotel room, instead she meets her former next door neightbour and high school friend Aaron Collins. Aaron is back in South Carolina to help out his Dad (who still lives next door to Jill's mother) with his handyman business, but is ithcing to get back to a private security job with one of his ex-Marine friends.
I have to confess I misread the blurb for this book and was expecting more of the falling in love to take place AFTER they decided to secretly get married in order for Jill to get her inheritance, whereas much of the novella takes place before Jill and Aaron agree to have a sham marriage.
Again, this is an Entangled Brazen imprint so the reader should expect a short, steamy novella. You definitely get this but I think I would have preferred less sex in public(ish) places and a bit more plot.
I have only read one book by Jennifer Blackwood previously which was The Rule Book, I preferred that book, it had more depth and humour. But of course it was for a different branch of Entangled.
I received a free copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in return for an honest review.
I liked it. Jill is a woman who knows her own mind and isn’t impressed by her Grammy’s attempt to manipulate her from beyond the grave. She’s not stupid about her troubles and accepts that she needs help every now and then. She also values Aaron for the great guy that he is.
And he is pretty great – generous, sexy, understanding, the guy’s a complete package. The only downside to their potential relationship is the job he has lined up in DC. I really liked the way he supported Jill throughout. He doesn’t try to take over, he just helps her to get through her problems. It also helps that they have great chemistry.
I do wish there had been a little bit more detail about their changing feelings, though, and the pace towards the end sped up a bit too much, leaving it feeling kind of rushed. There are a few big decisions that aren’t given the page time I might have liked and the end was a bit abrupt. However, if you’re looking for a quick and easy read with a sexy friends-to-lovers theme, then give this a go. It’s good rather than great, but I still found it entertaining.

However I didn't really feel that Jill and Aaron shared any chemistry. But you could tell they had a solid childhood friendship and I enjoyed the banter between them. As well as the history they shared.
But overall this story for me just lacked a certain something. Which is why I only gave it 3.5 stars. Yet I would still recommend it to others. Especially if you are in the mood for a quick friends to lovers romance with a guaranteed happy ending. And although this book is part of a series. It can easily be read as a standalone.
