    Wow I loved this story I cannot believe that this is Melissa Ferguson s debut I am definitely going to be watching out for of her work I hope she s a fast writer This book was full of everything I love in a romance humor, heart, wonderful main characters, great secondary characters, and, of course, a happily ever after with a few bumps along the way Jett and Cassie are both such wonderful and giving characters There are some serious and sad parts to this story, which really brought out just how giving they both are And the humor I laughed out loud so many times while reading this story Cassie s sure way out of a date is so funny And Jett with the toddlers at church is hilarious I think I laughed nonstop that entire scene My only one tiny issue with this story is that I wished Jett and Cassie had page time together.I m really hoping we get Bree s story next But, if not, I ll be reading whatever Melissa Ferguson writes next Wonderful debut I received a complimentary copy of this book from NetGalley I was not required to write a positive review.

    This started out really good for me but then fizzled a bit Cassie is fed up with online dating and I loved her escape plan Jett s excitement in connecting with Cassie again was adorable But once the story lines regarding both sets of children were introduced, the romance took a back seat Cassie and Jett barely had any interactions, which made the ending a bit far fetched for me The writing was good, but I think the children really overpowered the romance.

    This book was a delightfully hilarious and also poignant read A firefighter sees the opportunity to reconnect with his high school crush, now a woman who provides a safe haven for impoverished girls Sparks fly and then surprises drop from the sky Our hero finds himself responsible for twin terrors and a nearly newborn infant, and our heroine finds her hands full with a teenager and two school age children He calls upon the help of his roommate and neighbor, and she upon her best friend and mom but neither dare tell the other about their unexpected, possibly permanent family additions for fear of scaring away their potential soul mate whose profile says they don t want kids Between frantic attempts to learn how to parent and simultaneously woo each other, while keeping the former a secret, this book had me in stiches Until it had me freaking out A wonderful, unique read.I received a copy of this book from the publisher, and the opinions are my own First posted on my blog

    I have been desperately searching for a new contemporary romance author to love and I have just found her You guys This book was amazing Everything I wanted it to be and so so so much From the very beginning I was completely hooked and I read the whole thing in one sitting Everything was expertly crafted, from the characters, to the plot, to the romance, to the humor Cannot believe that this is a debut it was that well done I loved Jett and Cassie, both of them work in jobs that require sacrifice and they both care passionately about the people they take care of They both immediately step up and in when it is needed almost without thought to how it will disrupt their lives They were so perfectly matched for each other and I loved their easy connection and the banter between them One of my favorite parts about this book was how much it made me laugh out loud The humor was brilliantly woven in so naturally and just perfectly timed There was the antics of the kids, the teasing of the friends, the scheming of little old ladies, and a bunch of other hilarious moments The secondary cast of characters were all so entertaining and I loved each of them for their own reasons Basically every single part of this book was awesomely fantastic and Melissa Ferguson has launched herself on to my favorite authors list Cannot wait to see what else she has in store for us I received a ebook copy of this book from NetGalley and was not required to write a positive review All thoughts and opinions are my own

    Cute This book totally reminded me of the movie Instant Family The best parts were with Jett and the kids As a mom who hasn t been out of the toddler years for too long, I could soooo relateand it makes me wonder just how much personal experience Melissa Ferguson pulled from her own kids .

    Ferguson s voice is fresh, flirty, and fun The book deals with some weighty situations child abandonment, adoption, social work but it s also laugh out loud funny I think fans of romcom are really going to like this one.

    Full review and author qa on FaithfullyBookish.comAll the hearts on the cover of The Dating Charade are entirely fitting because this story has heart in a big way I laughed, I cried, I hugged my kids, I told one of my kids to read this book There is entirely too much I love about this story to put it all into words The author has nestled Cassie and Jett s story in a diverse and dynamic community of friends, family, and coworkers like a big ol hug that s always there when you need it The romantic element is innocent and sweet with almost kisses than I could keep track of amidst two simultaneous and semi secretive parenting crash courses and I can t find a single thing to complain about besides the fact that the story had to end Melissa Fergeson s debut is a nothing but net three point shot for the win I highly recommend this story I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher and was under no obligation to post a review The opinions expressed are my own.
