Omar was brought up with the ethics of work hard, work harder on the weekend. He wants his father to be proud of the achievements he had brought to the family company. He wants the contract that his father never could. The only problem, the contract will only work with family orientated businesses.
So Omar plans to get an invite to a week long ocean retreat, and show this company what they are missing. Omar and Devi’s relationship starts out as mutual friendship. They like each other, they work well together, so why shouldn’t they pretend to be a couple, it’s all for the greater good.
But Devi isn’t convinced, she hates lies, and liars. She might live her life as a free spirit, but Devi isn’t comfortable lying. Omar has it all planned out, and in his head it all sounds perfect, what could possibly go wrong ???? Devi grudgingly agrees. And an engagement is announced, from there it all goes …..not exactly to plan.
Omar starts looking at Devi in a different light, he is wondering why now, why does he feel the need to hold her in his arms and the fierce need to kiss her !? This could complicate things, he wants the contract, but I don’t think he wants it at the loss of his friendship with Devi.
The week long retreat starts, and both Devi and Omar realise that their mission to snag the new contract might be harder than they thought.Read more ›
This is an enjoyable romance where two folks who’ve been friends for years suddenly find themselves more than just friends, indeed more than just friends with benefits. The angst of searching for her unknown father, his from reconnecting with his family and finding out about the past all add turmoil and dissent to their budding romance and keeping the reader anxious about what will happen next. It is well written, making it easy to empathise with the complex characters - especially after the big reveals and subsequent heartbreak.
Thanks to the author, publishers and NetGalley, too,
for letting me read an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
Even though I knew where things were going before I even picked this book up, I still thought it was nice that Devi had some reservations about lying. She’s a friendly, gregarious woman and she doesn’t like lying to people, so it was nice that she questioned Omar’s idea and his ethics about the whole thing. Even though I knew she’d cave. In fact I just liked Devi. She’s fun and funny, and I loved how she pulls Omar out of his comfort zone. The running joke and use of Aladdin’s A Whole New World was very cute, if a little, er, inappropriate during one scene. (But amusing.)
Omar is a typical alpha hero with a sad childhood. His behaviour isn’t always perfect, yet at other times he’s sweet and romantic and adorable. A little less pig-headed stubbornness wouldn’t have gone amiss, but his big apology scene was pretty special. (And am I the only person not expecting a Bradley Cooper lookalike with a name like Omar? I have to admit the misleading names made me a little sad.)
If you like friends-to-lovers, fake fiancées or even boss/secretary tropes, then you’ll know what to expect from this and will probably find plenty to enjoy. If you’re looking for something fun and easy with plenty of heat, this will also tick most boxes.Read more ›

I had a few laughs, a few moments where I shouted at the book so for me it is a five star read.
