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...

Predictable3By SleepingBeautyZPhiIt had the potential to be an awesome read if it weren’t for the predictable story line. I wish it had more curves and twists. Instead it was kinda blah.
Bravo!!5By JustpeachynDCI loved this book! Could NOT put it down!!What a confectionary triumph! Well-done Jasmine! Looking forward to more of your books! So talented!! Thank you for sharing your talent with the world!
Loved it!!5By JakespigSo sweet! I couldn’t put it down! Love the characters and how they tie into the other books ❤️
A must read!5By lilymaeellisonRead this novel in one day! I laughed, I cried and I wished that the characters won each cliff hanging climax!
Lacked dimension1By Redraph22Story was hard to get through. It was essentially one long sex scene, where they only took breaks for donuts and unrealistically resolved fights. I couldn’t wait for the book to be over.
Predictable2By Sdot8888I liked parts but the characters were pretty boring and overly insecure. Carlos and Theo were very girly. It was just ok.
Blah2By MoMoneyRiUpI bought the book for about $12 or so bucks, so I’m stuck reading (skimming) it, so I can’t wait to get it over with. Maybe the book will surprise me at the end. Early chapters are just simply not interesting. I don’t care that they’re pretending to be a couple, but the author really wants me to care about their insecurities and yearning. Stakes aren’t high enough for me. On the flip, her storytelling is great as far as structure and flow.... Just extremely boring story.
Cute story!5By Kellybeeee89I really liked this book. A sweet romance that was realistic and a few times I caught myself going "awwww" . Looking forward to checking out Jasmine's other works.
Loved it and couldn’t put it doen5By Destinys-book-wormI really loved this story. It was a refreshing love tail that gave me warm and fuzzies. I’m still thinking about the characters even though I finished the book.
Repetitious2By JustambieThe kick off of the story had some promise and intrigue, but it seemed like the author could never pull us out of the endless loop of casual sex that wasn’t really casual sex but nobody wanted to say that it wasn’t casual sex tap dance. Also I found the racial concerns a little bit one sided; there should have been a little angst for Drew as well as Alexa. I could see that the author was trying to weave in some character complexity with Drew’s patient concerns, and Alexa’s TARP project, but this story was definitely heavy on the “fooled around and fell in love” gambit which made it drag at times. Not something I’ll re-read.
