What’s wrong with a little bit of faking it?
After Josie got dumped by her ex through a note on the fridge, she hasn’t let herself get close to anyone. But when she meets Cameron at a Halloween party, who turns up in the same Ghostbusters costume as her, it’s virtually impossible to stay away.
Cameron, a curly haired video-games designer with dazzling blue eyes, the sexiest dimples and the same encyclopedic knowledge of movies as Josie, seems too good to be true.
And maybe he is… Because there’s one teeny tiny problem as Josie falls madly in love. Cameron has no idea that Josie lives at home with her ex-porn star parents and their dog Dave, or about the minor detail that she works for their sex toy empire. After her ex broke up with her because of the family business, Josie decides to tell a little white lie.
But it’s just a matter of time until the truth comes out. When it does, will Cameron end things, leaving Josie with only Dave the dog for company? And what if she’s not the only one who’s keeping secrets?
So funny it should come with a warning! Don’t read while eating/drinking/in public – embarrassment will ensue. The perfect romantic comedy for anyone whose love life is more extinct than dinosaurs, and for fans of Sophie Kinsella, Lindsey Kelk and Emily Henry.

Thank you to Bookouture for letting me take part in this tour and for my copy of this book via Netgalley. I LOVED the Callaghan Sisters and was devastated when that series was over. I admit I am always nervous when an author starts a new series or has a standalone. However, I had no reason to be nervous on this occasion.

Kristen brings her trademark humour to this wonderful book. I absolutely adored all the main characters. Josie is such a sweetheart. She is so likeable and easy to identify with. I just wanted things to go well for her.

Josie’s family are the absolute best. They are so open, funny and at ease with each other. I honestly fell so much in love with them. Nan is my favourite. She is so funny and so wise.

Cameron, oh Cameron. What can I say about this kind soul. It’s obvious that Cameron and Josie are meant to be. They just get each other.

If you are looking for a hilarious, laugh out loud read then this is the book for you. Kristen has captured my heart again with this family and I can’t wait to see what new stories she brings us.
