Book Review - The Real Thing by Melissa Foster (With Rafflecopter giveway)


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


THE REAL THING
Sugar Lake #1
Melissa Foster
Releasing Sept 5, 2017
Montlake


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.


Book Review

I have read many of Melissa Foster's other books and this one feels different... in a good way.  I'm a fan of her work, but this story felt more complete and the characters more complex than the Love in Bloom series.  The Real Thing is a little more than just a quick light beach read.  The story is still fast a paced and the tone generally light hearted as I've come to expect from her other books, but I felt more of connection to Willow and Zane than I typically do with characters in her books.  I am really looking forward to this new direction of books and recommend them to anyone who enjoys other Montlake authors like Catherine Bybee and Marina Adair.
