Three Day Fiancee by Marissa Clarke ~ Review

Helicopter pilot Taylor Blankenship’s time schedule is maxed out. Between his job, his one-hundred and fifty pound slobbering mess of a dog, and his matchmaking grandmother, he has no time for anyone or anything-especially a woman. If only there were a way to get Grams to back down.

The job of New York City dog walker suits Caitlin Ramos perfectly while she preps for her CPA exam—steady, scheduled, and requiring very little human interaction; a huge seller since she’s still on the mend from a toxic relationship. Men suck. Especially her bossy hot client with the Saint Bernard that thinks it’s a lap dog. No way will she go for his plan to pretend they’re engaged to get his grandmother off his case. Down, boy.

Offered a bargain she can’t refuse, Caitlin finds herself playing the part of fiancée to Taylor. Fortunately, it’s only for three days. All she has to do is fake a relationship with Mr. Bossy Pants in front of his entire family, survive a fierce game of truth or dare with an unscrupulous pair of octogenarians, endure a one-on-one round of Twister with Taylor, and not lose her heart to a guy who turns out to be a lot more than she’d bargained for.

I love, LOVE  pretending stories!  It's my very favorite trope.  So when I saw this one, I had grabby hands to get it!

This book added a couple more things I really enjoy in a book, laughter and a dog.  Beau may be a Saint Bernard but he believes he's a lap dog.  And he believes in slobbery kisses.  I loved him.  And, of course, he loves Caitlin.  She's one the few that can handle him.  Must be love. 

Poor Caitlin.  She's having the worst morning as she tries to get to Beau's apartment for his morning walk.  Of course, when she arrives to find his owner chasing him around the apartment in nothing but a bath towel, things look up.  Hehe.  

While it doesn't really seem like it could happen, that's what I loved about it.  I loved the pure fiction of it.  The sudden attraction with steamy chemistry that just won't be denied.  I loved the forced kiss in front of his family.  I loved the silly Grandma that loves to play games, including truth or dare.  I loved the happy at the end.  It's a big part of why I read.  To get lost in another's story, one that's better than what I've got going on at the moment.  And this story does that.

Fast.  I read this in an evening.  Didn't want to put it down and I was giggling all the way through it.

Fun.  The silliness was adorable and endearing. 

Sexy.  These two are combustible.

Pick this one up to enjoy an evening!



  1. I love this trope too! I'm reading Dating the Prince right now and it's a fake dating situation and I love the chemistry and tension created by this trope. I'm adding this book to my reading list.

    1. Oh. I saw that one! Good to know its a good one. Thanks!

  2. This one sounds like so much fun and I love the doggo. Great review!
