Limited Edition Husband, Winner Takes All #4 by Lauren Blakely

"A great first read!" Tatted_book_freak read Lauren Blakely for the first time and started with Limited Edition Husband.

From the blurb:

One weekend with no strings was supposed to be the plan.

After barely escaping my last train wreck of a romance, I’ve got a new dating goal—play it cool.

I stick to that strategy when I meet a hunky Brit at a fundraiser and ask him to grab a drink. But he’s newly out and eager for all the things he’s never done, so he ups the ante with the wild suggestion that we jet off to the city of sin for a weekend, then say goodbye.

But instead, thanks to blackjack, a bet and some bourbon, we’re saying I do.

And in the morning I’m asking myself what the hell have I done? I can’t risk being the football player who’s also a playa. We’ll just undo the holy matrimony right this stinking second.

Except, the pics of our nuptials are splashed all over the Internet, and my agent says we need to stay Mister and Mister until the brouhaha blows over.

Thirty days as fake husbands with the charming Brit who’s determined to prove that he’s nothing like my ex?

My bruised heart can handle that as long as I don’t fall for my husband.

And I won't. When we split for real, he'll be an ocean away.

Contents include: A sarcastic, romance-phobic American football player, a charming and dirty-minded British businessman, an Elvis impersonator, white-hot first times, dangerous decisions, and a sexy, witty, emotional fake marriage, first times MM standalone sports romance!

Tatted_book_freak's Review:

So, I have seen a lot of reviews, both reading and audio, by Lauren Blakey, and though I usually wouldn’t say I like to base my reasoning on other people’s opinions, I decided to give her a chance finally with Limited Edition Husband. That said, I prefer not to read the fake relationship trope, but hey, it was football, so why not?! Upon starting, it was easy to understand there was absolutely nothing “fake” about this relationship as a genuine connection happened throughout.

I instantly fell in love with Nate and Hunter! The flow of their relationship, even after being pushed, was organic and natural. Their dedication to one another was swoon-worthy, sacrificing for each other without hesitation. Not to mention their chemistry was fiery hot!! Also, the support of the side characters, minus Hunter’s father, added so much depth to the outcome. My only complaint would be the follow-through with the epilogue felt rushed. Besides that, great first read!
