“A swoony rom-com brimming with humor and charm.”—Entertainment Weekly (The Must List)

What a charming, warm, sexy gem of a novel....One of the best books I've read in a while.”—Roxane Gay, New York Times bestselling author of Hunger

Agreeing to go to a wedding with a guy she gets stuck with in an elevator is something Alexa Monroe wouldn't normally do. But there's something about Drew Nichols that's too hard to resist.

On the eve of his ex's wedding festivities, Drew is minus a plus one. Until a power outage strands him with the perfect candidate for a fake girlfriend....

After Alexa and Drew have more fun than they ever thought possible, Drew has to fly back to Los Angeles and his job as a pediatric surgeon, and Alexa heads home to Berkeley, where she's the mayor's chief of staff. Too bad they can't stop thinking about the other....

They're just two high-powered professionals on a collision course toward the long distance dating disaster of the century--or closing the gap between what they think they need and what they truly want....

    Love Alexa! Great leading lady, naturally sexy, with brains, courage, purpose and cake. Dialogue was fun and clever. Made me miss the Bay Area. Did not want it to end. More please.

    I enjoyed reading this book. It’s entertaining, cute, and has lots of romance. It was very predictable, as most romcoms are. The dialogue was childish at some points, I cringed a few times. It was a quick and fun read overall and would recommend it as that. It’s not deep or thought provoking, although there is opportunity for that, but it isn’t touched upon too often. But it was a cute read and I finished it in one weekend! I liked the characters personalities and drive, especially Alexa when she was talking about her work.
  • Marvelous Read! Should be Optioned and Turned into Movie!!

    Well done!! Typically I go for sci-fi or serious autobiographies, but after hearing about this book and seeing some of the reviews, I decided to give it a chance. This is one of those light hearted fun reads that whisks you away...happily. It should definitely be turned into a movie!! Not sure who the lucky girl should be but you should consider Wolfgang Novogratz as the leading man! Werd! This is not a fake review. I am a real person! And this would be awesome!!!
  • Loved this book❤️❤️❤️❤️

    I loved this story so much! It was nice to read a romance novel that doesn’t rely on sex scenes to make the characters interesting. I thought that Alexa and Drew were great together. I also appreciated Alexa’s insecurities about relationships as well as the insecurities that come with a black woman/white male relationships. It was refreshing that while their racial differences were a part of their relationship insecurities, it wasn’t presented as either in surmountable or minimal. I will definitely be reading more of Jasmine Guillory’s work!

    Wanted a break from serious reading. OMG the worst book I’ve read in a quite a while. The male character is your basic psychotic control freak sexual predator. Both main characters are vapid, juvenile and utterly forgetful.
  • Loved it!

    I liked the story but I tend to stay away from anything too political, especially when that isn’t the genre of this book (at least I thought when I paid for it). I was kind of bummed that there were so many political remarks in this.
  • Ok but could be better

    I love romance however this book was Like reading from a minor i say that because if your going do a Love scene do it dont leave the reader guessing what’s taking place. The story was cute the couple was good together but they kept going in circles it was basically the same over and over . The love scene was flat... but each opinion will be different every one has to read it for their self and form there own opinions of the book.

    Alexa and Drew meet on a stuck hotel elevator, and Alexa becomes Drew's date to his ex's wedding. Was it love or lust at first sight? Sex can complicate a relationship and people set expectation based on how they feel personally. As busy professionals, Alexa and Drew skirt important issues by not having crucial conversations to deal with an interracial long-distance relationship. To further convolute matters, Drew has a no-girlfriend rule! Alexa and Drew get caught up in their feelings but how they do not know how to say it. This book is a quick romance story that will make you laugh, cry, and question intent.
