Actual Rating: 4.5 stars
Lake Redstone by J.D. Hollyfield is a standalone romantic comedy! Oh man did this book make me laugh out loud SO MANY times! There were moments where I had to physically put my iPad down because I was laughing so hard! If you are a fan of romcoms like The Virgin Romance Novelist, The Chocolate Lovers series, and The Wild Ones series by CM Owens this is a must read for you! I promise, you will be giggling the whole way though!
That being said, this book follows the fake relationship trope. Our heroine Casey feels sort of like the 5th wheel in her friendships as her best friends are are happily married. Then to make matters worse what's supposed to be a girls only trip turns into a couple trip. So what does Casey do? She tells a little white lie to her friends and hires someone to be her fake boyfriend for the weekend.
Enter JIM Bob. Or, just JIM. He's nothing like she was expecting- handsome, sweet, and totally into her despite their little lie. And the feeling he brings to her heart? Totally unexpected! But you can't help it when it comes to intense connections and chemistry and these two have it.
Unfortunately, since Jim is starting to develop real feeling for his violent fake GF he wants to tell everyone that their relationship was a farce. Casey is too afraid to admit it though and it just may be the nail in the coffin for them. What's a girl to do? You'll have to read and find out!
If you are looking for a book that will have you laughing uncontrollably for HOURS then this is the book for you! I am continuously impressed with Hollyfield's stories but this may be my favorite one yet! The only reason I knocked it down a half star is because I felt like I needed a tiny bit more in the epilogue. You may agree with me if you read it!
