Dating Tip #1: Never choose a fake boyfriend too hot to resist...

Theo Mahoney’s culinary dreams sit on the back burner. Hired as a private chef for a billionaire, her boss' eccentric demands never leave her time to cook.

Another soul-destroying workday takes a spicy turn when Sullivan Rivas, a blast from her high school past and old nemesis, springs a blackmail scheme on her. Armed with a secret that could torch her career for good, the devious and unfairly gorgeous Sullivan demands a meeting with her elusive boss.

What was supposed to be an introduction escalates into a full-blown fake romance, complete with double dates and public displays of all-too-real affection. Lines are crossed, promises are broken, and phony dates become genuine feelings, until Theo realizes that the only thing more devastating than getting caught with a fake boyfriend… is falling for him.

Lark Notes:

Entering my fake dating era! "Love Contract" has all my favorite things: enemies-to-lovers, forced proximity, blackmail, angst, and spice, with rom-com vibes. –Sophie

"Love Contract" is a fake-dating contemporary romance, and the first book in the Love Contract trilogy, which follows twin brothers Sullivan and Reese, and their father Merrick. Each book in the series is a complete standalone with an HEA.

Overall Opinion :

I have always been the first to read more books by this author and am so glad that is exploring light romances now as well! Sophie is an amazing author and she has done justice to Theo and Sullivan for me. This one is a contemporary romance and a lot different from what this author usually writes. It's leaning a bit towards the dark romance type but not that much.

The banter between the characters is to die for and I loved that so much! The main leads are funny and their chemistry is obvious from the first page. I knew Sullivan was upto no good but the ending was good for me as well. There was suspense and it kept me hooked to the end as I read this one in a single sitting.

Definitely recommending this one to all the contemporary romance loving people out there!
