REVIEW ~Pretending She's His by Kelsie Leverich~

Title: Pretending She's His
Author: Kelsie Leverich
Series: Hard Feelings #2.5
Release Date: November 19, 2013

My Rating: 4 Stars
New York Times bestselling author Kelsie Leverich continues her series in her new Hard Feelings novella, where a tempting little lie turns into so much more…

Eva Riley is the maid of honor at her best friend’s wedding and it just so happens that her ex is the best man. Eva’s a straight shooter and definitely not the damsel-in-distress type. But with her pride on the line and her ex’s heart on his sleeve, there might not be enough champagne in the world to get her through this weekend…

Trevor Owens may be one hell of a good friend to Eva, but he’s always wanted to get the fiery redhead between the sheets. So he swoops in and offers a solution to her ex problem: they can pretend to be together—just for the weekend. But when their little game of make-believe is over, will they be able to tell what’s real and what’s only pretend?

This was my first Kelsie Leverich book, and she has become a new favorite of mine. Her characters are the perfect blend of witty, and loving. In a nutshell Pretending She's His was about two friends being in the right place, at the right time. On the weekend of her best friend's wedding, Eva needed someone to help her dissuade her ex-boyfriend against wanting to get back together. And Trevor is the faithful friend, who steps up to the plate. Eva and Trevor are both caring, independent characters. While, their similarities would normally draw them to each other, Trevor's bed-hopping tendencies have always put off Eva. But when Trevor comes to the rescue and plays her boyfriend for the weekend, the line blurs between friendship and something more.

I usually find novellas lacking in some aspects but, Pretending She's His is a full package book. It had the development that I want my characters to experience and depth to the story. Eva and Trevor are so incredibly, adorable together and I loved reading about their inner confusion. It was hard for both of them to tell if this relationship was actually going further than they had intended, or if it was just for show and a quick fling. But, their story turns into so much more than a quick weekend. I also loved that, had they not ended up together, I could still see them being close friends like before. I love the relationships that build from friendships, to me they're almost stronger and you definitely see that reflected throughout the book.

Overall, this is a terrific novella, and I just one-clicked the heck out of Ms. Leverich's other books. This book is well-written, engaging, with a hilarious cast that I can't wait to read more about! So, please go check it out. I have a feeling we're going to be seeing a lot more of Kelsie Leverich, and I for one can't wait :)

Happy Reading!
