In Love With the Crazy Love Series: Fake Wife (Review)

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 fiancĂ©.

Stacey Lynn dives in with a romance that forces two strangers into a marriage arrangement that benefits them monetarily but turns into so much more. After Teagan is blindsided by job loss and a cheating boyfriend, she literally runs into rich, handsome Corbin Lane.

Corbin has just learned the terms of his beloved grandmother's will. In order to inherit his safe haven, her home in Cannon Bluffs, he must marry within six months. Getting his car run into by Teagan is kismet because she has no home and needs money, and Corbin needs a wife. They both know it's crazy but once the ball gets rolling the two only have to worry about the chemistry sparking between them.

Fake Wife changed my perspective of the fake wife trope. It's so excellently written and I haven't read any similar books that top it! Teagan and Corbin are such realistic characters. When they made mistakes I wanted to yell at them until they worked out their problems. There's actually a scene where Teagan and Corbin experience miscommunication and everything almost falls apart, but Teagan thinks it through before leaving. That was so unexpected because sometimes our heroines are irrational and make hasty decisions. Teagan, though, is the kind of heroine I would like to see more often, a little more rational and less dramatic. I definitely can't wait for the next book in the Crazy Love series, Knocked Up!
