Finding a good roommate through a classified ad isn’t as easy as it sounds.
I was starting to lose hope.
Until a knock at my door came and God answered my prayers.
Except…uh…wrong prayer, God.
I’d definitely requested the big guy find me a drop-dead gorgeous man on more than one occasion…just not as my roommate.
Declan Tate talked me into interviewing him anyway.
While he was amusing and charismatic, I wouldn’t have been comfortable living with a man, so I regretfully declined.
Then cupcakes showed up at my door—freshly baked by Declan and just as sinfully delicious as he was.
You could say he was persistent.
I eventually folded. It wasn’t like I had another viable candidate anyway.
Plus, I was interested in someone else. And Declan was into another woman. So it wasn’t like anything would happen romantically.
After he moved in, the two of us became the best of friends. We even started to give each other advice on getting our crushes to notice us.
Eventually, Declan concocted an idea: we should pretend to be a couple to make our love interests jealous.
I was hesitant, but went along with it anyway. To my utter shock, his crazy plan worked.
Now I was dating the supposed man of my dreams, and my best friend had the woman of his.
But there was one problem.
I couldn’t stop thinking about Declan.
Those feelings we were trying to fake?
Yeah…I wasn’t pretending anymore.
|Not Pretending Anymore by Penelope Ward and Vi Keeland is a very fantastic story with a deep backround. It is something different than other storys from these two amazing woman. I mean every book from Penelope Ward and Vi Keeland is crazy hazy amazing, but this one was very special to me.
I too have some phases in my life, where I suffer from depression and anxiety. And I know what it feels like to lose a person you love so dearly. So I could feel everything the characters felt. That is something special and unique. You often don’t get to read about a person that struggles with depression and anxiety in books. I don’t know why, but depression is normal like a headache, but people don’t and won’t talk about it. I love Penelope Ward and Vi Keeland for making me feel a bit normal, while reading this.
Okay… wow… big emotinal breakout. Sorry… not sorry…. 😀
The story was really good and as funny as always. After reading some book sfrom these two, I might know, which passage Penelope wrote and which Vi. These two are fantastic together. They did an amazing job of capturing their personality and some scenes were just so perfect. I cried, I laughed and I love this story.
I can’t wait for the next book from these two!
