Staff Reviews


Rochon's follow up to The Boyfriend Project focuses on Taylor, one of the three women who found friendship in that story by getting even with a catfishing jerk who had played them all. I love this series and these full-realized, deep characters. Taylor is trying to build her fitness consulting business and crosses paths with Jamar, a young, injured football player in need of physical and personal rehabilitation. Taylor is battling demons of her own: an undiagnosed learning disorder, financial insecurity, family drama and shame over all of it. Circumstances require the couple to engage in a "fake relationship" which grows increasingly hot with each page. Everything about this book is perfect: the portrayal of supportive women's frienships, a relationship heavily based on consent, super hot love scenes. Touchdown!

Description


When a personal trainer agrees to fake date her client, all rules are out the window in this "fun, heartfelt, and totally relatable" romantic comedy (Abby Jimenez, NYT bestselling author of Life's Too Short).

When it comes to personal training, Taylor Powell kicks serious butt. Unfortunately, her bills are piling up, rent is due, and the money situation is dire. Taylor needs more than the support of her new best friends, Samiah and London. She needs a miracle.

And Jamar Dixon might just be it. The oh-so-fine former footballer wants back into the NFL, and he wants Taylor to train him. There's just one catch—no one can know what they're doing. But when they're accidentally outed as a couple, Taylor's game plan is turned completely upside down. Is Jamar just playing to win . . . or is he playing for keeps?
