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 voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
As the first book in the Animal Attraction series, Three Days Fiancée was a fun, light and sexy read I enjoyed from start to finish.
Here we follow the story of Caitlyn, dog-walker extraordinaire soon to be a CPA and Taylor, sexy hot guy/helicopter pilot.
A series of unfortunate events finds Cait stranded in Taylor’s apartment waiting for Beau, a giant fluffy pup, to pass an expensive ring he’s swallowed. Fortunately, for Cait mostly, she finds the ring stuck in the dog’s mouth and just so happens to try it on as Taylor’s busybody and matchmaking grandmother comes in. Cue in massive misunderstanding that Taylor walks in on and then decides to exploit to get his Grandmother off his case.
Now all they have to do is pretend to be happily engaged for a three-day anniversary party, and then go back to their own lives where Cait does nothing but work and study for her test and Taylor is out flying his bosses at any given time.
With a powerful and instant attraction, both Taylor and Caitlyn have to fight the pull if they dare walk away with their hearts intact… as we all know, though, things never go according to plan.
Taylor was the total package, he came off as a bit of an anti-commitment jerk at first, but he was funny and charming, a total hunk beef and sexy as all get out. He was really awesome to his dog and his family and I really liked to see him fall for Cait.
Caitlyn had a very bad experience with men in her past, which left her more than gun shy. She had a lot of walls up, but Taylor and his crazy family tore right through them. She was very standoffish, which isn’t my favorite trait in a leading lady, but she ended up being cute and fun and was capable of deep feelings. I know the “fake relationship” trope is not for everyone but I personally enjoy it very much, and Three Days Fiancée was a perfect example of why. With feelings, humor, and some seriously hot scenes, this checked all my boxes. Taylor’s family was just the frosting that made this sexy and fun cake even better.
