Review ~ SEVEN DAY FIANCE by Rachel Harris


One bad boy. One good girl. One unforgettable week.
 
Angelle Prejean is in a pickle. Her family is expecting her to come home with a fiancé—a fiancé who doesn’t exist. Well, he exists, but he definitely has no idea Angelle told her mama they were engaged. Tattooed, muscled, and hotter than sin, Cane can reduce Angelle to a hot mess with one look—and leave her heart a mess if she falls for him. But when she ends up winning him at a charity bachelor auction, she knows just how to solve her fiancé problem.
 
Cane Robicheaux is no one’s prince. He doesn’t do relationships and he doesn’t fall in love. When sweet, sultry-voiced Angelle propositions him, he hopes their little fiancé game can finally get her out of his head. He doesn’t expect her to break through all his barriers. But even as Angelle burrows deeper into his heart, he knows once their seven days are up, so is their ruse.

REVIEW

Wow.  Are should I say, "Holy crap monkeys"?  This is my first Rachel Harris book.  Now I can't wait to go back and read the first book in this series.  All of her characters are amazing people you can’t help but like and want to know.
If you follow my blog, then you know that I'm an Entangled Bliss lover.  They're simply comfort reads for me.  What I didn't expect going in reading this book was to laugh out loud and have a smile on my face throughout the whole book. But, Rachel managed to do it.
Angelle Prejean is a country Cajun girl from Bon Terre, Louisiana.  At twenty-six-years-old, she’s the youngest of four children.  After the death of her older sister, Angelle tried to ease everyone’s pain by doing what she was told to do or expected to do, act appropriately and not get into trouble.  She ended up living a life she didn’t want to live.  After breaking up with the guy her parents and town wanted her to marry, Angelle headed to the big city of New Orleans.  Only she ended up settling down in a town called Magnolia Springs.  In Magnolia Springs, Angelle made friends, became apart of a wonderful community, and developed a MAJOR crush on hunky bartender/restaurant owner, Cane Robicheaux.
Cane Robicheaux is a love them and leave them kind of guy.  He doesn’t do committed relationships after what his father did to the family.  Cane is Angelle’s roommate Sherry’s older brother.  He is also her best friend, Colby’s brother.  
Pretty much every since she’s moved to Magnolia Springs, Angelle has avoided going back home.  She doesn’t want to be reminded of the heartache she’s caused her family and town by not marrying Brady Doucet.  However, Thanksgiving is here and she has to show up for a week with her fiancé.  Why oh why did she have to tell her mother she was engaged to Cane?  Now this doe-eyed girl has to convince the man of her dreams, who goes against everything her parents approve of to pretend to be her fiancé for a week.  
Cane owes Angelle for saving him from a fate worse than death.  With his sisters’ nudging, Cane agrees to pretend to be Angelle’s fiancé.  Plus, he thinks this would be a great opportunity to explore his attraction for her.  Cane just isn’t prepared for the feelings Angelle brings out in him.   What ensues is what dreams are made of.  You get a heroine who is finally willing to come to terms with her past; be strong and stand up for herself.  You also get a hero who is kind, loving and protective.  Together there’s no way you can’t see that they belong together.  In the end, how can a girl possibly say no to a guy who writes you a song, plays a guitar for you, and is willing to put on a scratchy, itchy Santa suit, just to see a smile on your face?
