ROMANCE FOR CYNICS
ROMANCE FOR CYNICS (3) by Nicola Marsh: Financial consultant Cash Burgess is in desperate need of good PR, and a fake girlfriend for a Valentine’s week fundraiser is just what he needs to fix his tattered image. Cool and untouchable gardener Lucy Grant is the perfect candidate, and fortunately for him, she’s in need of a cash injection to help her grandmother. Lucy strives for security without a man, and Cash is happy with his uncomplicated life, but as they put on a show for the TV cameras, even they can’t deny their sizzling chemistry. Though superficial and lacking in originality, the fake girlfriend trope in this story will appeal to those wanting a lighthearted, Valentine-themed read.
