When I finished Seven Day Fiancé, I was reduced to a giggly, happy, hot mess. This book is so much more than just a straight romance book but all that said the romance is smoking!

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 Cane 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 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
My Recap of Seven Day Fiancé :
Angie is in a spot of bother! She has got herself in a situation more prickly than a glasshouse of cactuses and needs a Fiancé fast. Luckily her friend’s brother, Cane is around to step up to her rescue and act the part. Even luckier he proves to be a natural at “acting” his part.
My Thoughts on Seven Day Fiancé :
It would be so easy to write Seven Day Fiancé off a just another romance book and there is nothing wrong with romance books. But this one is more. So much more. More as in great characters, great writing and great settings.
My favourite part of the book is the setting. The book is set in Cajun country and I felt immersed in it. From the food, to the massive family gatherings, to the small town feel, I just loved the atmosphere that this book created. If the Prejean family wanted to adopt me, I’d start pacing my bags right this minute! And now that I know that in Cajun country, words are often doubled for emphasis, I’m jumping on that bandwagon. Why do I feel my friends will get tired, tired of this very quickly!
OK, I lied when I said my favourite was the setting. There is a tie for first place. The setting and Cane! Cane is a maths-loving, fact-loving, bookish guy who can also cook, loves kids, plays guitar and has won best a best-abs competition. Don’t worry he isn’t sleazy, it was for charity! I love, love Cane!
The plot was fun and moved quickly along. Angie is a lovely MC, she is a timid mouse with “chance” tattooed on her wrist to try and make herself be more daring. She isn’t naturally feisty but tries hard. I felt it very easy to empathise with her and I saw myself in her klutzy, awkward ways. She has a few secrets up her sleeve and they all flesh her character out and make her seem like a person I really could be friends with in real life.
Overall this is a perfect book for a lazy, dreamy afternoon and you’ll get plenty of laughs along the way.
