Book Review - One Summer Weekend by Shannon Stacey

ABOUT THE BOOK


Best friends. A fake relationship. And only one bed.

New York Times bestselling author Shannon Stacey delivers the feel-good beach read you’ve been waiting for.

Noah Stafford loves his life—his happy, single life. So what if he made up a fake girlfriend to stop his boss’s matchmaking? He kept things close to the truth—Carly really does have long, sexy legs and a killer sense of humor. She just happens to be his best friend. His wicked awesome and completely platonic best friend.

But now his boss is having a destination wedding, and Noah is expected to attend…with Carly, his girlfriend.

Carly Randall has no interest in living out a rom-com plot. But Noah is her best friend, so she agrees to help. Still, once they arrive on Cape Cod, she can’t explain the sudden butterflies she feels when he looks at her that way. Or why she doesn’t mind when Noah’s hands stray a little south of her back.

What happens on the Cape stays on the Cape.

Except not really, not at all, and once their sexy faux-cation is over, Noah and Carly return to a reality where everything’s changed. Going for it would mean risking their friendship…but forgetting how good they were together just isn’t an option.

REVIEW

This is a plot that has been done a lot.  Fake relationship, only one bed, one thing leads to another... but Shannon Stacey finds a way to tell this classic rom-com story in a new and interesting way.  Noah is a very relatable hero who is just trying to get ahead in his job and things quickly get out of hand where he has to ask his best friend Carly to pretend to be his date to a wedding.  The chemistry is clearly there for everyone except them... until even they can't ignore it.  The story flowed easily and was easy to read in one sitting and ended leaving me feeling a little fluttery for the characters even after I put the book down.  Anyone looking for a great feel-good story should read this.


OVERALL RATING - 5 STARS!
MATURITY RATING - 18+ a little steamy
