Review: Seven Day Fiancé (Love and Games #2) by Rachel Harris

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.

Angelle has gotten herself in a 'funny' situation. To keep her family from meddling around in her life, she came up with this boyfriend, who now is even her fiancé. The only thing is, he's not real. Luckily she manages to win Cane Robicheaux in an charity auction. Only now she has to ask him to pretend to be her fiancé for a week, so they can go to her hometown to celebrate thanksgiving.

Now ever since Angelle walked into the restaurant five months ago, Cane has been hooked. He just can't seem to get the sweet, shy and clumsy, green eyed angel out of his mind. So pretending to be her fiancé for a week, might just be his chance to get her out of his head. Of course neither of them expected for their crushes to turn into so much more.

The overall plot wasn't very original, though I did enjoy reading it a lot. The Cajun element definitely took me by surprise and was very entertaining.

So far Angelle has only shown her sweet and vulnerable side, but the woman definitely has more going on. That soft side of her though brought out those protective instincts from Cane. It seems either he's thinking about protecting or seducing her. The chemistry was definitely there between them, though sometimes that emotional connection was a bit missing.

Cane falls perfectly into the bad boy, hottie category, certainly when he finally finds the one woman who can tame him and make him want to settle down. Of course that doesn't make me love him any less. I really liked that the author tried to add more depth to the character, by making him be a closeted nerd. Also with him you can certainly some character development that was needed to make it more believable. Though there was this part towards the ending where the pace was a bit too fast and it worked out too well to convince me.

Overall a very fun, sweet and clean read. The bad boy level just right to make me swoon and an easy relatable heroin. This is a perfect read for a lazy sunday afternoon!
