Book Synopsis:

One little white lie, one big explanation!

Okay, pretending her sexy boss is her boyfriend is more like a huge lie. But electrician Leah Santino will take the risk. If her parents think she has someone, they won't go back to smothering her, ans they can be a family again.

Problem is, Jacob McKnight isn't just her boss, he's her friend. And faking a relationship when the Santinos come to visit means those sparks she's always tried to ignore are hotter than ever. This thing between them is starting to feel real, but Leah has a very good reason to stay independent. Unless  that's one lie that's outlived it's purpose.

So what did I think? 5 Stars

Like: The chemistry between the characters.
Dislike: Nothing.

Would I recommend it?

Yes, I would 100% recommend this book, it is such a cute and sweet book and I loved reading it! In case you haven't noticed yet, I'm a big fan of the friends to lovers trope, I fall for it every time and I can't get enough of it.

I really liked Leah's character, I love how strong and independent she is, and I really connect with her. In the past few years I've dealt with health issues of my own and I know what it's like to have family members who smother you, it's really hard to deal with and I loved seeing that in a story.

I loved reading how Leah dealt with her issues as a teen and then changed for the better as an adult. I also loved Jacob's character and seeing how keeping his secret from his family affected him and how he ended up learning how to deal with his anger.

Overall, it was an incredibly sweet romance novel and I would definitely recommend it to anyone! So if you love a good friends to lovers trope, mixed with family drama, health issues, and lots of chemistry, then this is the book for you.

Thank you Harlequin via Netgalley for providing me with this book in exchange for an honest review!
