Blog Tour / Book Musings - The Real Thing by Melissa Foster

This sassy, spirited baker is fine with heat—
but is her fake fiancé too hot to handle?

Sugar Lake #1

Releasing Sept 5, 2017

Bakery owner Willow Dalton’s friendship with Zane Walker has always been a bit complicated. Now a scrumptiously hot A-list actor, Zane’s always had a reputation as player. He’s arrogant, and he’s definitely not boyfriend material. Sure, he did Willow a favor by agreeing to take her virginity before college, but is that reason enough to go along with a fake engagement a decade later—even if it comes with a real diamond ring?

Zane should have known better. Nothing involving Willow has ever been easy. Still, he knows her better than anyone, and becoming America’s hottest new leading man means cleaning up his reputation. An “engagement” to curvy, sass-mouthed Willow is the perfect PR move . . . provided no one gets hurt.

Now Zane and Willow’s little white lie has turned into an irresistible recipe for sweet temptation. And soon no one will be able to tell the difference between their fake engagement or the real thing—including them.

**THE REAL THING is being published by Montlake (an Amazon imprint) and won’t be available on other ebook retailers, but you can download a FREE ereader app to read it HERE, order the paperback.

My Musings

I have heard and read about the author's books for a long time. I had been procrastinating a bit on trying her out. So when I came across this book, I jumped in quickly. Boy oh boy, what have I missed in the past!? For full fledged enjoyment, Melissa Foster is the way to go! 

Zane and Willow have stayed in touch inspite of being too far from each other. From that little detail itself , it can be seen that they are fond of each other. When Zane has to get someone to act as his fiance and he is adament to have only Willow in that role, it shows his friendship is only on the surface and there are more deep levels below it. 

What I felt interesting was the real person behind Zane. He might be a big actor but his real self is down to earth and funny. He has loyalty to his past. Willow on the other hand is both sweet and spunky. And both of them have naughty sides to them which give us a very sexy and hot romance.

The characters are all realistic. I loved getting to know Willow's family. I felt that they were rooting for Zane subconsciously. There are scenes like the one where Zane almost refuses to kiss his costar which made my heart flutter. I enjoy romances with depth and this one hit the spot. 

If you love romance with family and a small town ambience, this is a treat in all respects. I look forward to reading ALL her books.

I received a free copy for reviewing purposes. This doesn't affect my review in any way. These are all my own thoughts on the book.

My one line review : A hot romance with a sweet undertone.

My rating : 5/5
