Fake Wife; Stacey Lynn

Title: Fake Wife (Book #1 in Crazy Love Series)
Author: Stacey Lynn
Genre: Romance; Contemporary
Publisher: Loveswept
Publications Date: January 9th, 2018

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 fianc√©.

Hello Fellow Readers!

After the last book I read I really just needed a lighthearted easy to read book. This book was perfect. While yes, it was filled with cliche type situations I really didn't mind. Teagan and Corbin are perfect for each other and it really does show with Lynn's writing. The sexual tension between the characters was stifling (in a good way). The entire time I was just like "Please just tear each other's clothes off already!"

Corbin wasn't really a playboy which I enjoyed. Too many contemporary books have the main lead as a playboy. He was still rich, successful, and unable to settle down but at least didn't oogle every women's breasts (just Tegans). Tegan was a little annoying a first since she seemed a little too sweet but eventually, she showed that she had a backbone and refused to just be looked down upon. 

The only thing that really annoyed me was that whole thing with Tegan's Ex. It was stupid and I felt didn't fuel the plot like Lynn was hoping.
