Fake It by Jennifer Chance (Rule Breakers #2)

Synopsis:

51KDpuK+OoL._SX373_BO1,204,203,200_New grad Anna Richardson works hard—so hard that she’s given up having a romantic life. Anna has even convinced her friends that she’s dating an amazing guy—who they’ve simply never met. But now Anna has a wedding to attend and needs to produce the hottie she’s been lying about for the past six months. Enter Jake Flynn, her infuriating, motorcycle-riding, jaw-droppingly gorgeous neighbor, who’s more than willing to fake it for a weekend. In fact, Jake won’t be satisfied until things get real.

Though Jake is only playing the role of adoring boyfriend, he’s starting to feel the heat, and judging by Anna’s sweet blush, so is she. Letting chemistry this intense go to waste would be a real shame. Soon, though, the thin line between fantasy and reality fades. Jake may not be what every buttoned-up fast-tracker wants, but he’s sure as hell what Anna needs. And if she takes a ride with him, their adventure never has to end.

Review:

I love marriages of convenience in historical romances – let’s put these two strangers together and watch sparks fly! The contemporary counterpart is a boyfriend of convenience, the hot guy that you need to have on your arm for an event, usually a wedding, to avoid gossip or discomfort.

Rock It by Jennifer Chance (Rule Breakers #1)

Synopsis:

18587025Lacey Dawes is a total pro at the talent agency where she works, and it doesn’t hurt that IMO Worldwide Media represents Dante Falcone. The rock god has starred in her fantasies since she was sixteen—and remains her secret crush to this day. So when Dante picks her to be the interim manager on his Dream It tour, Lacey can’t believe her luck. Handling Dante is sure to be the most exquisite, spine-tingling, nerve-wracking mix of business and pleasure ever.

Although Dante is grateful for the adoring fans who scream for one more of his full-throttle, soul-searing songs, being surrounded by a cadre of corporate types backstage is wearing thin. Then Lacey shows up. Yeah, she’s organized, smart, quick to get him what he wants before he knows he wants it—but Dante senses there’s something else going on with sweet, sexy Lacey. One kiss tells him what that “something” might be . . . and makes him hungry for more.

Review:

All hail a slump-breaking 24 hour read!

What I love most about this romance is something other people seem to hate – there is no angst or teeth gnashing of any kind. No troubled pasts, no drug use beyond the occasional beer, no Big Misunderstanding. You have two people that, in their own weird way, fall in love.

Is it perfectly believable? Of course not! We’re dealing with a rock star here, and I don’t think anyone would look at the cover and expect down to earth, small town slice o’ life. Instead there’s big shows! Million dollar sponsorships! A tour bus with the most lux shower in the world, including jets in all the right places! Yup, you read that right.

The sex is hot. I appreciate that there’s a slow burn and much common sense between our hero and heroine. The start of the relationship does smack of instalust but I’m surprisingly fine with it. Likewise, some of the publicity stunts seemed like they might unravel if I looked at them too hard… so I didn’t. This isn’t a book to analyze, it’s escapism – perfect for a rainy day or long flight or overtaxed brain. Just sit back and enjoy the ride.
