Nick Recommends (1) : Fake Relationships



Happy Thursday, friends!

I hope you're having a good week. I'm starting a new feature on the blog in which I will recommend books/movies/TV shows of specific tropes or genres. I've been getting asked for recommendations a lot lately and I love making lists so I thought I'd put everything in one post. Today's trope is one of my all-time favorites, fake relationships. I know it's a trope a lot of you love too. Below are 10 of my favorite books that tackle the trope!


Hard Sell (21 Wall Street, #2) Act Like It (London Celebrities, #1) Pretending He's Mine (Love on Cue, #2) Luck of the Draw (Chance of a Lifetime #2) Appetites & Vices (The Truitts #1)

When an unflattering photo of a young Wall Street broker threatens to destroy his career, he hires his frenemy-with-benefits to be his fake-girlfriend to fix his reputation. Boy is he in for a ride!
