Blurb: A standalone romantic comedy of epically awkward proportions, from New York Times bestselling author, Emma Hart.
Imagine this. You’re ready to leave after a one-night stand, and you’re figuring out how to—shock horror—leave your number and ask him to be your fake boyfriend for your sister’s wedding this weekend. When he wakes up. Well, that happened to me. And over coffee and omelets, I found myself a date.
Which was how I ended up arriving at the wedding with a guy I knew nothing about. I didn’t know his last name, or how we met, or how long we’d been dating. I didn’t know where he grew up, what he’d majored in in college, or how many siblings he had. I sure as hell didn’t know he was Adam Winters, hotshot hockey player—and not only my father’s favorite player, but my little nephew’s freakin’ idol. Which means I’m in trouble. Big, big trouble. My mother is suspicious, my sister is bridezilla on crack, and my grandpa will tell anyone who’ll listen about his time in Amsterdam’s Red Light District. Four days. I have to keep this up for four days, and then Adam and I can return to our regular lives, where we don’t have sex whenever we’re alone and my family aren’t interrogating him over his intentions with me.
At least, that’s the plan. And we all know what happens to those.

This is a new to me author who has been on my TBR forever. This book cover attracted me and I knew I had to sign up for the ARC.
I cannot explain to you all the ways in which I love these two characters.
I was laughing from the very first chapter. I love Poppys attitude and her sarcasm. From the very beginning her relationship with Adam was HOT 🔥🔥 I loved their banter and open-ness towards each other. They didn’t hide their blatant sexual attraction to each other and they seemed to just fit perfectly.
In real life though, I would not find Poppy approachable. I know this is kind of the point but there were some parts of the book where i wondered what attracted Adam to her. Yes, she was very sarcastic and blunt- which I loved in her- but at times she seemed argumentative when she didn’t need to be, mostly with Adam.
Her mum was Satan, I thanked the Lord above that I don’t have a mother like that, I think I’d be slightly alcohol dependent too! And poor Rosie! Her big day spoiled by her own mother.
I think Adam was a good fit where the family were concerned. He knew what to say and exactly how to handle them. He knew how to handle Poppy too which was a mega test for him. Most men wouldn’t have last four days with her and that family!
I would have liked Poppy’s feelings to have been more forthcoming though, at least to the reader. Whilst reading I got the impression that he felt a lot more towards Poppy than she did him and in turn I felt sorry for him. She was too stand-offish towards him.
It was really hard for me to put this book down but I needed to sleep so it took me 2 days to read 🙈 I’m glad I signed up for this one! I really enjoyed this authors writing style and the humor. Emma now had a life-long fan!
