Description from Goodreads.com:
Angelle Prejean is in a pickle. Her family is expecting her to come home with a fiancé—a fiancé who doesn’t exist. Well, he exists, but he definitely has no idea Angelle told her mama they were engaged. Tattooed, muscled, and hotter than sin, Cane can reduce Angelle to a hot mess with one look—and leave her heart a mess if she falls for him. But when she ends up winning Cane at a charity bachelor auction, she knows just how to solve her fiancé problem.
Cane Robicheaux is no one’s prince. He doesn’t do relationships and he doesn’t fall in love. When sweet, sultry-voiced Angelle propositions him, he hopes their little game can finally get her out of his head. He doesn’t expect her to break through all his barriers. But even as Angelle burrows deeper into his heart, he knows once their seven days are up, so is their ruse.
Seven Day Fiance is part of a series, but it can be read as a stand-a-lone. I haven't read the first book in this series, so I am a great source to tell you that you don't need to read the first one to read this one. So, I highly encourage you to go ahead and pick this book up, because it is amazingly good!
This story is so cute, sweet, sexy, emotional, adorable, and every other positive word I can think of. It really is the perfect romance and the writing is very compelling and hooks you from page one. It definitely helps that the first scene in the book is a date auction and shirtless man contest. I found the characters to be very genuine and likable. They were very well developed and felt like real people instead of just characters on a page. I found myself rooting for their fake relationship to work out and become real.
The personalities of these characters were just perfect. Angelle was a shy, clumsy girl who was trying to find out who she really was after living her whole life trying to please others. Cane is a tough bad boy who has a warm heart and has a soft side to him that he doesn't show anyone. I couldn't think of a better duo to play these parts, because these characters really were meant for each other. They played off each other so well and held the pieces that the other was missing.
I thought the ending was perfect and was really heart warming. Once I got to the last couple chapters I had to leave for work and found myself sitting in my car before my shift started to read, reading during my lunch break, and reading the last couple pages as soon as I got home. It really was that good. I loved that this story showed a complicated relationship and wasn't all rainbows. It made the ending that much better and feel much more real and thought out.
Seven Day Fiance really was a perfect story and I am so happy I read it. It will definitely be one I recommend to people a lot and will be in my favorites list. There really isn't enough things I can say about how amazing this story was. You really just need to read it for yourself and see.
I absolutely loved this story. It was the perfect combination of sweet and sexy. I loved how genuine the characters felt and found myself rooting for their fake relationship to work out. These characters were really well thought out and the writing was very compelling. I loved the ending to this story and couldn't think of a better way to end it. This was an all around great story and I highly, highly recommend it.
