Title: Fake Wife
Author: Stacey Lynn
Series: Crazy Love #1
Release Date:  January 9, 2018

This marriage is strictly business . . . until the temptation gets way too real.

Sterling: I loved my grandma, but I don’t need her money. All I care about is keeping the house—the only place that’s ever felt like home. That, and screwing over my dad, who wants to turn the property into a mall. There’s only one catch: To receive my inheritance, I have to get married within six months. Me, the guy who’s never dated a girl for more than six minutes. Now I need to find a woman I can trust. So when I’m rear-ended by a Prius, I figure it’s a sign that I’m supposed to meet gorgeous, down-to-earth Teagan Monroe.

Teagan: First I lose my job. Then I come home and find out—in the most graphic way possible . . . yeah, that way—that my boyfriend is a cheating jerk. And then I speed off and nearly kill Portland’s sexiest bachelor. Sterling Lane should be pissed. Instead, he offers me more money than I’ve ever seen in my life to marry him and live together in a mansion for two years. No sex. No feelings. Just cash—enough to make all my dreams come true. Then we go and break all our rules . . . and I realize I’m falling in love with my fake fiancé.
I've read many a pretend wife book, but I'm pretty sure Stacey Lynn's FAKE WIFE has just out-won them all. Corbin and Teagan's story starts as one of convenience. Their lives have both recently derailed, and upturned their expectations. But with an unexpected fated meeting they are both faced with decisions that could change their lives. Corbin wants nothing more than to break the family mold set forth by his horrid father, and his sadly trapped mother, but when his grandmother passes away a leaves a stipulation in her will for him to be married, it throws everything off balance for him. Teagan currently faced with lies and heartbreak where her life is concerned. To top it off their upended lives come to a screeching halt when Teagan rearends Corbin. But what would typically be a heated exchange or at least a putout one, turns heated in the best way possible. 

Corbin was expecting his solution to literally run into him, nor was Teagan expecting to run into her own. But they found each other, and though it started as a mutual solution, it became so, so much more. Teagan and Corbin can't do anything half-assed. They go all in. But it feels too fast, it can't be this easy to find your forever, can it? And as the doubts creep in the heartache set up in this novel just wrecked me. BUT for every twist and gouge, came a intensely sexy moment or a sweetly romantic gesture. 

This book is the perfect escape. Sp perfect, that I hated for it to end, but in this book Stacey Lynn has introduced a few other characters that I HAVE to know how their stories play out. This book is a grade-A must-read!

Happy Reading!
