Sunny Shelly’s Review: Something Like Love, by Claudia Burgoa

Release Date: April 12

USA TODAY Bestselling Author Claudia Burgoa pens a fun and sexy romantic comedy where playing pretend turns to playing for keeps…

We have to pretend that what we have is something like love…

I’m down on my luck.

Scratch that. This is the worst week of my life.

Enter the last person I want to deal with: Burke St. James.

He’s wealthy.

He’s a womanizer.

And a big liar.

And it turns out we need each other.

Burke needs a fiancée to seal the deal of a lifetime. I need help or my business is going belly-up. So, Burke very non-romantically asks me to marry him. Well, he asks me to be fake engaged to him, anyway.

I’ll attend a few dinners, pretend I’m in love, and meet the family.

In exchange, he’ll invest in my company and help me launch it off the ground.

All is easy, except his kisses feel more real than they should.

And the sex…damn, we’re not supposed to have sex.

It’s all for show…right?

Did I mention he’s a really good liar?

Pretending not to fall in love is more complicated than I thought.

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 5 Stars
I loved this delicious slow-burn romance between Burke and Chloe! They hooked me in from the prologue — so how come two years later, she hates him with a fiery passion when there was such a spark between them when they first met?

Welp, that would be thanks to Burke’s business manager/Chloe’s roommate, Maddox, and all the lies he’s told. Maddox also brings Chloe and Burke together when he skips town without a trace, leaving her homeless and one of Burke’s business dealings in a precarious position. Now, Burke needs a fiancee for his next deal, and Chloe needs a place to live and cook for her catering business, and a relationship of convenience is born.

Sure, they vow that there will be no sex and no falling in love, so of course, that is exactly what happens! It was a wonderful ride as Chloe discovered that Burke is nothing at all like she thought he was based on what Maddox had told her, and Burke, a guy who doesn’t do relationships, discovers that being in one with Chloe might not be so bad.

Something Like Love is the second book in the Against All Odds: St. James Family series. There are characters that cross over from the OG (like lawyer Nyx — I forgot how much I love her!), and we get to visit Burke’s twin, Zach, and Autumn a bit. I also felt like I got to know the other St. James siblings better and I CAN’T WAIT for Teddy and Seth’s story! What is brewing there??

I received a complimentary copy and voluntarily left a review.
