Romance Review: Seven Day Fiance by Rachel Harris

SUMMARY: Angelle Prejean is in a pickle. Her family is expecting her to come home with a fiancé—a fiancé who doesn’t exist. Well, he exists, but he definitely has no idea Angelle told her mama they were engaged. Tattooed, muscled, and hotter than sin, Cane can reduce Angelle to a hot mess with one look—and leave her heart a mess if she falls for him. But when she ends up winning Cane at a charity bachelor auction, she knows just how to solve her fiancé problem.

Cane Robicheaux is no one’s prince. He doesn’t do relationships and he doesn’t fall in love. When sweet, sultry-voiced Angelle propositions him, he hopes their little game can finally get her out of his head. He doesn’t expect her to break through all his barriers. But even as Angelle burrows deeper into his heart, he knows once their seven days are up, so is their ruse.

OPINION: Hot, witty, and enticing, Seven Day Fiancé is definitely a new favorite of mine. I love Cane. Seriously. This man is all kinds of sexy and melty. With the right amount of brokenness to him, not to mention his playboy reputation, he’s absolutely the kind of hero who gets me hot and bothered, but who also has me grinning like crazy when he settles down and finds his HEA.

The banter and playfulness between Angelle and Cane drew me in, and watching their budding romance kept me hooked. I loved the family gauntlet he had to run, initially under the ruse of being her fiancé, but of course it shifted into having far more meaning. Then came his dark moment of the book, which is one of my favorites as far as romance mishaps go. He messes up in a pretty big way, but he also goes above and beyond to make up for it, and figure his issues out. On Angelle's side, the things she had to face and deal with played nicely into his, and I especially loved how determined she was to be her own person, rather than doing what her family wanted. Not to mention, the inherent awkwardness that came with facing the man she had turned down to marrying, with her fake fiancé by her side, was fabulously done.

This one is from the Bliss line, so the sexy scenes are closed door, but Harris has such talent when it comes to the heat, spice, and tension that this book still keeps you on the edge, waiting for the characters to get busy. With a great voice and fast pace banter and writing, this one is absolutely a must read for any contemporary romance fan. But I totally lay claim to Cane. Good gravy that sexy beast.
