Finding a good roommate through a classified ad isn’t as easy as it sounds.
I was starting to lose hope.
Until a knock at my door came and God answered my prayers.
Except…uh…wrong prayer, God.
I’d definitely requested the big guy find me a drop-dead gorgeous man on more than one occasion…just not as my roommate.
Declan Tate talked me into interviewing him anyway.
While he was amusing and charismatic, I wouldn’t have been comfortable living with a man, so I regretfully declined.
Then cupcakes showed up at my door—freshly baked by Declan and just as sinfully delicious as he was.
You could say he was persistent.
I eventually folded. It wasn’t like I had another viable candidate anyway.
Plus, I was interested in someone else. And Declan was into another woman. So it wasn’t like anything would happen romantically.
After he moved in, the two of us became the best of friends. We even started to give each other advice on getting our crushes to notice us.
Eventually, Declan concocted an idea: we should pretend to be a couple to make our love interests jealous.
I was hesitant, but went along with it anyway. To my utter shock, his crazy plan worked.
Now I was dating the supposed man of my dreams, and my best friend had the woman of his.
But there was one problem.
I couldn’t stop thinking about Declan.
Those feelings we were trying to fake?
Yeah…I wasn’t pretending anymore.

Molly is in desperate need for a roommate and so far every woman has come to her door has been a complete dud for one reason or another. Enter D. Tate… who is certainly NOT a woman by any means but he was sure he could make his new perspective roomie, see it his way. I was sure Declan was on his way to winning Molly over with his charming charisma but Molly wasn’t having until her love for frosting changed her mind! I loved the banter between Declan and Molly from the start. I knew I was going to love these two and I was right, I totally did!
These two became total besties fast, but we could tell the feelings were certainly brewing but neither one of them wanted to admit it since they were both crushing on other people at their jobs. But you know what they say, ya always want what someone else has, day late, dollar short kinda thing. Question is, is it going to be TOO late to NOT PRETEND ANYMORE? I adored this book and read it one sitting! I give this one a Five Pink M&Ms!!
