Thank you @turnthepagetours and @labyrinthspine for including me on this book tour and sending me a copy for review!
This was such a fun fake relationship story! That was a doppleganger story as well for a minor author celebrity and a huge movie star celebrity.
I enjoyed The Shaadi Setup and definitely enjoyed this one too!
I loved the fake romance turned real romance since she is his biggest fan club and he becomes hers. The toxic culture of celebrity is not a good place for mental health and taking care of your health in general it seems. The talk about removing toxic relationships from your life is an important one. It’s so hard thinking you had a best friend but really you aren’t even their acquaintance for all the consideration they give you.
Taft is the sweetest hero with all the heart and he just gets walked all over until Freya.
And Freya with her writers block in her 2nd book he helps her to actually get words down that she keeps.

A laugh-out-loud funny and whip-smart romantic comedy from the author of The Shaadi Set-Up, about a young woman who takes the place of her celebrity doppelgänger, and must fake-date the actress’s sexy costar boyfriend.
Writer Freya Lal has a huge secret: she’s a dead ringer for It-girl actress Mandi Roy. Her second novel is due in a month, but inspiration is nowhere to be found. Desperate to shake off her writer’s block, Freya leans into her look-alike abilities and indulges in some mistaken identity for simple perks, like scoring a free mimosa or getting into a trendy nightclub.
Actor Taft Bamber appears to have it all: gorgeous, talented, and Mandi’s love interest both on- and off-screen. But what nobody knows is that their relationship is a PR stunt, and after years of playing make-believe, he’s yearning for something real.
When Freya’s latest impersonation of Mandi goes viral thanks to Taft’s accidental interference, rumors of a breakup threaten Hollywood’s golden couple. To make amends, Freya is forced to give Mandi a little time off: she’ll pretend to be the actress for a month, move in with Taft, and squash the rumors by acting completely in love. But as Freya and Taft play house, it becomes impossible to ignore that their instant chemistry isn’t just for the cameras. While faking it, they might have just found the real thing.m
