Review: Fake Wife by Stacey Lynn

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

Corbin: 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. Corbin 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.

Kristine's Thoughts:
** I received an advanced readers copy from Loveswept in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!**

Fake Wife was the story of Corbin and Teagan. When Corbin's beloved Grandmother passed away she willed him her property that was near and dear to him on the condition that he get married. This was a problem for a man without a steady girlfriend. Teagan lost her job and her long term boyfriend on the same day she rear ended Corbin's car. It was almost like it was fate.

This is a story line that has been done a million times before so my expectations weren't high for Fake Wife. However, I have read all of Stacey Lynn's Fireside series and adored it so I was excited to see what the first book in this new series offered.

I have to admit to seriously liking this book. It had the two things that I always require in this genre of book in order to thoroughly enjoy it. What is that you might ask? It would be chemistry and anticipation. Lynn was bang on with the two. She perfectly captured the chemistry between the two characters but gave the reader enough anticipation to really give you the feels.As with most things in life, anticipation is half the fun and sexy time in a book is just sex unless there is a build up of chemistry and lust to make it steamy. On top of that, both characters were really likeable. Both were respectful of each other and were genuinely good people. It was easy to route for the two of them.

I look forward to following the rest of this series to see what other kinds of crazy situations Stacey Lynn comes up with.
