"A groomsman and his last-minute guest are about to discover if a fake date can go the distance in a fun and flirty debut novel. Agreeing to go to a wedding with a guy she gets stuck with in an elevator is something Alexa Monroe wouldn't normally do. But there's something about Drew Nichols that's too hard to resist. On the eve of his ex's wedding festivities, Drew is minus a plus one. Until a power outage strands him with the perfect candidate for a fake girlfriend. From the best man's toast to the bouquet toss, Alexa and Drew have more fun than they ever thought possible. But before they know it, Drew has to fly back to Los Angeles and his job as a pediatric surgeon, and Alexa heads home to Berkeley, where she's the mayor's chief of staff. Too bad they can't stop thinking about the other. They're just two high-powered professionals on a collision course toward the long distance dating disaster of the century--or closing the gap between what they think they need and what they truly want."-- Provided by publisher.

I wanted to enjoy this book, but I could never really get into story. I blame Drew for this- I just couldn't feel much attraction to his character. It wasn't that he was bad- it was that he was blah and entitled. I constantly felt like Alexa was the only real person in the relationship.

I enjoyed the love story of Drew and Alexa. It was very satisfying to read. I can't wait to find out more about them!

little to no chemistry. The wedding (arguably the best part) is done within the first hundred pages. The main characters have sex, fight, have make up sex, repeat. Drew is an asshole and his perspective really wrecks his character 99% of the time. Alexa is an insecure mess. All of their problems could’ve been solved with some simple communication.

Cute story, but too drawn out for an entire book. I got bored in several parts, thinking, this again?

A light-hearted and entertaining book about a fake date between Alexa and Drew. Their attraction keeps drawing them together until they realize they may just have a real relationship...

I actually enjoyed this book! It didn't take you "around the world" to get to the point. I enjoyed the sweet yet "hey this couldn't possibly happen" love story of Alexa and Drew.

This was just okay. It’s a easy read that moves quick. The issue with her sister was overly dramatic and the reasoning for her program were questionable. The main character eats terribly which is an odd comment but seriously it’s noticeable!

A meet-cute encounter that leads to a great contemporary romantic page-turner.

I thought it was boring and very predictable. I'm so tired of the heroine in these types of novels being so, 'woe is me, I'm so homely. A hot guy like him couldn't possibly want a mess like me! Blah, blah, blah...'. Hooey.

A chance meeting in an elevator thrusts two strangers together for a weekend wedding and both parties end up with much more than they bargained for.

It's unfortunate that the presence of strong profane language dominates the story and takes away from what should be a meet cute turned extended relationship.
