Natalie needs a break from her stalled career as a software developer, so when her good friend Sebastian suddenly appears asking her to accompany him on a trip to paradise, how can she say no? The catch? She has to pretend to be his wife.
Sebastian must woo a potential partner and to do it he needs a wife STAT, so he turns to his old pal Natalie. She’s smart, beautiful and they know nearly everything about each other. It’s the perfect arrangement and things won’t get complicated.
The friends to lovers trope is one of my favorite – something I never get tired of. That is the theme within this story and I absolutely adored Natalie and Sebastian together! As college friends, they know each other really well. When Sebastian needs a pretend wife for a business trip he asked Natalie to join him in Thailand. Nathalie has always had feelings for Sebastian and is looking forward to being with him at the exotic resort. But, she doesn’t realized that he is looking forward to being with her just as much as she is with him.
This was a sweet, fun-loving, story about two friends who turn into more. It was a quick read that too an hour in the afternoon – something I enjoy doing on the weekends. Natalie and Sebastian had great chemistry and the writing was great. Overall, it was a good story that I really enjoyed.
