The Description

Publication Date: April 23, 2024

Debbie Mason meets Lizzie Shane in this small-town romance where a burned-by-love veterinarian arranges a fake partnership with a down-on-her-luck city girl in order to save his family business.

When Amarie Walker goes for something, she goes big—including starting over. Leaving her cheating ex and entire D.C. life in the rearview, she crash lands in a small town with no plan, no money, and no job. An opening at the animal clinic is the only gig for miles, no surprise considering the vet is a certified grump. If Eli Calvary ever cracked a smile, Amarie might faint on sight from shock. At least his adorable golden retriever appreciates her fabulousness…and shares her love of daily treats!

When Eli took over his late father’s practice, he quickly discovered the clinic was facing foreclosure. So there’s no time for social niceties, especially not flirting, even with someone as gorgeous, bubbly, and business-savvy as Amarie. Yet when Eli needs to invent an investor on the fly, it’s her name that comes to his lips. Now, for the sake of their furry clients, Eli and Amarie hustle to save the clinic, trying to ignore the nonstop sparks between them. Because while their partnership may be fake, their connection already feels way too real.The Review

Fake It Till You Make It by Siera London was a cute romp through the small mountain town of Service, West Virginia. There were laugh-out-loud moments, several animals and exes, secrets, small town life, gossips, and businesses. There were also money troubles, lies, doubts, insecurities, social media posts many of which go viral, romance, love, hopes and dreams, families, and friends who are like family.

This book is Amarie and Eli’s story, which is front and center throughout until things fall apart. She comes into Eli’s vet clinic looking for a job like a breath of fresh air to his family, but not so much to Eli. Amarie lives by the motto, “Fake it till you make it,” voiced several times. They are good together and balance each other until they have a major falling out. Everyone sees they belong together, but once Eli breaks Amarie’s trust, can their love and relationship survive, especially with others plotting against them?

Many stories were told, and there was a good flow for the most part. Things often get heated, especially when their exes come around wanting them back. There’s also another kind of heat, and it’s not just the weather and humidity. The epilogue takes place fourteen months later and gives some closure and the happily ever after I root for, but Eli’s brothers both need their stories to be told, so I’m hoping we’ll get back in Service at least a couple more times.

Fake It Till You Make It is a small town romance with many townsfolk having big hearts. Sit back and relax and see how the town gets back on track in more ways than one.
