Like most romance readers, I have a long list of favorite tropes. Fake relationship or “fake it till you make it” is near the top of my list, so I thought I’d share some with you today for The Thursday Three. In fact, I’ll probably revisit this trope a time or two (or more!) because there are so darn many great ones. Today’s picks are all books I’ve read (and loved!) in 2021.

If you’re not reading Talia Hibbert’s Brown Sisters series, you are missing out!
✔️ PhD Student + ex-rugby player (who reads romance novels)
✔️ Fake relationship gone viral
✔️ Chemistry, banter and feels
Written in the Stars by Alexandria Bellefleur
Alexandria Bellefleur has quickly become one of my new favorite authors. This series is *chef’s kiss*.

The Soulmate Equation by Christina Lauren
Christina Lauren is one of my go-to authors and this is one of their best books to date.
