great book and great characters
Fake Wife - Stacey Lynn

Drake was Teagan’s boyfriend and had been working fifteen hour shifts as he was a resident at Portland General. Drake was the first long term boyfriend Teagan had and they had met her Jr year of college and had now been together for seven years. Teagan had followed Drake all over the country- she had dropped out of college her Jr yr- while he completed medical school and now his internal medicine residency. Teagan had thought they would be married by now. Teagan wanted a husband, family, and a equine therapy farm for special needs children. Teagan began to doubt Drake still loved her, it had been months since they had been intimate. Teagan now worked at a library. But Teagan went to work and found out funding had been cut and she no longer had a job. Teagan goes home early and finds Drake having sex in their bedroom with another woman. Teagan had probably suspected it but had been too naive to name it for at least six months. Corbin’s grandmother had just died and she was the only woman he had loved in his life for as long as he can remember. Corbin had parents but they were either depressed, drunk, or buttholes. His grandmother had left him her mansion and land but he must be married within six months and be married for at least two years. Corbin thought Lane men aren’t built for faithfulness or families. Teagan had rear ended Corbin in his Mercedes Instead of yelling at her Teagan Corbin took her to a high end restaurant and teagan’s honesty and bluntness was refreshing to Corbin after the women he had known all his life. Then Teagan agrees to Corbins plan for her to be his fake wife and then they headed out to his grandmother’s mansion to have some time to get to know each other. What Corbin doesn’t know is he is the man who starred in Teagan’s sexual fantasies. But Teagan can’t act on them or let Corbin know. It was to be strictly a business arrangement Nothing in Teagan’s life would be real for the next two years and she had to remember that. Trey is Corbin’s best friend and he doesn’t really want to lie to him but one little slip and Corbin could lose his grandmother's home. But there is a strong attraction between Corbin and Teagan. I loved this book. I am not sure I believe in love at first sight but this book made me want to. This was a well written great romance. I love Teagan and Corbin together I love how Caitlyn accepted Tegan and quickly became her friend and how she defended Teagan against Corbin when his father had stopped at the house when Corbin was at work. I also loved how Corbin is a man who has everything he could want supposedly but he needed Teagan. I couldn’t find anything to complain about in this book which is great. I loved the characters and the ins and outs of this book and I highly recommend.

good book and characters
Starlight Nights - Stacey Kade

Calista/Callie was in college but still didn’t fit in. Calista was a former tv star. A Maxim It Girl four years ago. Callie knows she already had working against her and she had to try to face it. Callie s now a regular person and she wants to care. At twenty three Calista is the oldest freshman at Blake College.  Callie still had three and a half years of college, she was studying to be an accountant. Callie needed to blend in and make this work. The guys here are only interested in the stuff Callie was rumored to have done and with whom. While an actor Callie had a brush with heroin and she had lost her freedom to her controlling mother through a court order. Callie had been a working child actor and her mom had been her manager for the first eighteen years of Callie’s life Callie supported her family and her mother had pushed her to be an actor and to keep acting. . Prisoners had more freedom than Callie used to have. The other college girls felt they had to compete against Callie. Callie is terrible at making friends as she had years of homeschooling. Callie loves Eric . He had helped her get a part on Starlight when she really needed a job but had never kissed anyone and Eric showed her how to get through it and shortly after she had fallen in love with Eric even if he hadn’t known.   before even though she was sixteen. Callie was reluctantly invited to a party at a Frat house and when she goes sees Eric at the Frat house and he says he just wants to talk to her. Callie had been in a car accident with Eric and had several surgeries to right her arm that had been shattered.. After seeing Eric at her college Callie knew she still felt very strongly for Eric but she will be a lot more careful and not let him ruin her life. Eric is already an established actor and his father is a huge producer in Hollywood but always derails s Eric’s career. Eric wants to be prove himself as a producer without his father’s help. Eric buys the rights to Callie’s favorite book . He hopes to make a web series and help Callie to come back to Hollywood. Callie doesn’t want to go back to acting but she knows her mother will push her sister to act if Callie doesn’t go back to supporting the family.

I liked this book a lot. I loved Eric and Callie together . This had my attention form the beginning to end. It did drag at times for me but not enough for me to stop reading this. I did get confused at times between the present and the past. I did love how Callie and Eric grew throughout this book. There was realism in my opinion in this book. This book choked me up at times. I didn’t like Eric for awhile but as he grew I changed my opinion of him. Both callie and Eric were broken and I felt made this  book more interesting. There is : young actors, a first kiss, malipination, drug abuse, alcohol abuse, mental abuse, secret love, personal baggage, love triangle. Ruined life, college, family baggage, tabloid interference, and so much more in this book. I loved the characters and the ins and outs of this book and I recommend

Review: Fake Wife by Stacey Lynn
Fake Wife - Stacey Lynn

NOTE: I found out after my review was posted that the name of the hero was changed from Sterling to Corbin after the ARCs went out for review. Sorry for any confusion.

 

For seven years, Teagan has followed her boyfriend around the country while he finished medical school and worked on his internship. She gave up college and her own dreams to follow their dreams. Except… she was the only one all in. After losing her job due to budget cuts, she comes home to find her boyfriend in the middle of sexing up another woman. Knowing things were over well before this moment, Teagan doesn’t even want apologizes or excuses and just leaves.

 

Sterling comes from money and has been named Most Eligible Bachelor three years running. He just laid to rest his grandmother Eleanor, the one family member he loved and trusted. However, at the reading of her will, Sterling finds out his grandmother set him up - placing a significant condition on inheriting the land and home he loves (and subsequently saving it from his father who will tear it down in the name of progress). He must fall in love and get married within six months… and stay married for two years. 

 

Fake Wife is a wonderful story about two lonely souls finding a perfect match. I absolutely love the fake-relationship genre. There is just something about playing love that always leads to finding true happiness, warming my heart in the process. Sterling needs a wife and while he isn’t looking for a someone to share his life with, he knows he can’t rely on the women in his social circle who will want more from him than two years wearing his last name. Meanwhile, Teagan is at the lowest point in her life, having nowhere to go and no one to help her. Fate truly does bring them together, and Sterling recognizes the win-win situation. 

 

I like how Teagan is weary, but also just this side of desperate to listen to Sterling’s proposal to marry him for two years, providing for her and giving her $250,000. But she also recognizes right away that it’s going to be very hard to put her life on hold for two more years to stay in a love-less, sex-less relationship.

 

And what’s not to adore about Sterling? He’s hot and cold, but he’s a kind person. When Teagan rear ends him, his first instinct is to make sure she’s okay. And after a day of trying to make things work out so he can save his home, he recognizes that he’s thinking of himself and how to make the situation work for him, rather than considering what his grandmother really wanted - for him to be happy and fall in love. When he reflects upon his grandmother’s wishes, he realizes he must take her request to find love seriously.

 

Fake Wife is a fast read. I was sucked into the story of Sterling and Teagan from the start. From the way they meet after she rear ends his car, to their genuine personalities. Both main characters are likable, and with their hard luck stories… I want them to succeed. I like that the author gives both Teagan and Sterling many layers. They are both smart - they actually think about the impacts of their actions… think through the what ifs and try to make solid plans. Yet, that doesn’t mean they don’t let emotions get the better of them. However, instead of throwing tantrums and holding grudges, the characters give thought to why they feel what they feel, and come back around stronger.

 

Fans of feel-good romances need to get their hands on Fake Wife. Sterling and Teagan make the perfect pair, and against the odds, they find their way to love.

 

My Rating:  A, Loved It
