You’ve Got Male highlights the struggles of a woman so busy taking care of everyone else that she almost forgets what it’s like to be cared for.


The Description

Publication Date: June 25, 2024

She has zero time for a relationship. A fake one will have to do—in New York Times bestselling author Marina Adair’s new romance that brings the humor and the heart…

Evie Granger’s life is one crisis away from a complete meltdown.

Between single-parenting a sixteen-going-on-forty daughter, managing a mom living her best life way out loud, caring for an ailing father, and keeping the family’s struggling coffee shop afloat, Evie hasn’t looked after herself in far too long.

So naturally her best friend chooses this moment to post a video of Evie describing the ideal man…and sends it stratospherically viral.

Now Evie’s an overnight social media sensation and every eligible (and otherwise) guy in a five-state radius is turning up with his “I’m the one” credentials. But Evie can’t bring herself to let any Prince Charming into a life that’s barely holding together. A life she doesn’t even recognize as hers.

So she strikes a bargain with her sexy—if equally overwhelmed—neighbor to convince America she’s taken. But can a faux fairytale start to feel real…or is it just as doomed from the start?

Marina Adair’s clever, uproarious story captures the utter chaos and irrepressible joy of balancing kids, parents, love, and finding a spare minute for yourself—while the whole world watches every disastrous minute.

The Review

Evelyn Granger has zero luck when it comes to dating, but it’s not like she has a lot of time in her chaotic life.

Author Marina Adair serves up a delightful romantic comedy in You’ve Got Male. Evie finds herself at the center of attention when her best friend posts a video of Evie describing the perfect man.

Not only is Evie dealing with a teen daughter, her parents and having to move home to help run the family business, but now she finds herself the target of every man who thinks he fits the description.

The twist comes when Evie reaches out to her nemesis, Jonah, and convinces him to be her fake boyfriend. His life is also a train wreck since he’s a widower with two young children.

Sparks are going to fly, but what happens when the “fake” relationship gets tested thanks to plenty of chemistry?

My name is Amy W., and I am a book addict. I will never forget the day I came home from junior high school to find my mom waiting for me with one of the Harlequin novels from my stash. As she was gearing up for the "you shouldn't be reading this" lecture, I told her the characters get married in the end. I'm just glad she didn't find the Bertrice Small book hidden in my closet. I have diverse reading tastes, evident by the wide array of genres on my Kindle. As I made the transition to an e-reader, I found myself worrying that something could happen to it. As a result, I am now the proud owner of four Kindles -- all different kinds, but plenty of back-ups! "Fifty Shades of Grey" gets high marks on my favorites list -- not for character development or dialogue (definitely not!), but because it blazed new ground for those of us who believe provocative fiction is more than just an explicit cover. Sylvia Day, Lexie Blake, and Kristin Hannah are some of my favorite authors. Speaking of diverse tastes, I also enjoy Dean Koontz, Iris Johansen, and J.A. Konrath. I’m always ready to discover new-to-me authors, especially when I toss in a palate cleanser that is much different than what I would normally read. Give me something with a well-defined storyline, add some suspense (or spice), and I am a happy reader. Give me a happily ever after, and I am downright giddy.


  1. I haven’t read the book yet but the author will be on a virtual book chat tomorrow night with Jill Shalvis and I signed up to attend. I look forward to the book chat and reading the book.
    I enjoyed reading the review.
