Seven Day Fiance (Love and Games #2)

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 Thoughts:  I just love Rachel Harris' books and was so excited when she decided to write adult contemporary romance in addition to her YA series.  The first book in the Love and Game Series, Taste the Heat, was wonderful and I enjoyed it so much.  Not only was the romance and the story itself outstanding, but the way Rachel Harris painted the whole New Orleans setting, pulling you in with her words, just added so much to the story.  In Seven Day Fiance we once again find ourselves transported to this picturesque setting with its unique culture and customs, something that sets New Orleans and the surrounding areas apart from the rest of the country.  The culture, the customs, the language, the food, the people, and the way things are different in the different parishes, even though they are only separated by a couple of hours, were so well integrated into the story and just added so much to it, and the food, well it's an experience in itself, something we learned in Taste the Heat, and again in Seven Day Fiance.  

Seven Day Fiance is Cane and Angelle's story.  It can be read as a standalone without any problem, as can Taste the Heat, which is perk I really like, while being part of a series, we are able to see some of the same people we have come to know and Love in Taste the Heat, which is an added bonus.  Cane Robicheaux is the brother of Colby and Sherry, both of whom we met in Taste the Heat, and he is also the best friend of Jason, his sister Colby's fiance.  He now runs the families Cajun restaurant, where he and both of his sisters work, Colby is a rather renowned chef that returned back to the New Orleans area to help with the family business, and Sherry is the bubbly outgoing and outspoken sister who is always looking for a fun time.  Cane is all kinds of hot, with the bad boy vibe going on, leather jacket, motorcycle, tattoos, and he has a reputation for being a ladies’ man, never ever doing relationships, yet he is fiercely loyal to his sister.  He also finds himself very attracted to a certain pretty redhead.  We also met this certain pretty redhead, Angelle, briefly in book one, but we really get to know her in Seven Day Fiance. There is a lot more to Angelle and her background, including the circumstances that lead her to leave home and start over.  Angelle has landed herself in quite a pickle with the story she has fabricated for her family to keep them off her back.  She now finds herself at a bachelors’ auction fundraiser with some of the sexiest Santa's you'll ever find, sporting abs to die for, the Thanksgiving is coming up, a holiday that she will have to go home for and either face the music or some up with a solution, which causes her to find herself making a kind of crazy proposition to a man that makes her swoon, melt, and want to run all at the same time.  Throw that all in the pot with a little Cajun spices and you have yourself the fixings for quite an entertaining story.  

I loved Angelle and I also really loved Cane.  Both have their issues to overcome, and what starts out as a ruse to get Angelle out of her predicament soon turns in to so much more - talk about blurred lines, well that is an understatement for Cane and Angelle.  The two of them have chemistry that will scald you, and they are crazy about each other, but Cane's past is holding him back in a major way in regard to commitment.  Meanwhile, Angelle's family, especially her ex, would like nothing more than to bring her back home and keep her there.  Seven Day Fiance is a delightful story that will capture your heart and make you smile.  Rachel Harris has delivered yet again, another fabulous romance that is something I would most definitely recommend all contemporary romance fans check out.

About:  Rachel Harris grew up in New Orleans, where she watched soap operas with her grandmother and stayed up late sneak reading her mama’s favorite romance novels. Now a Cajun cowgirl living in Houston, she still stays up way too late reading her favorite romances, only now, she can do so openly. She firmly believes life’s problems can be solved with a hot, powdered-sugar-coated beignet or a thick slice of king cake, and that screaming at strangers for cheap, plastic beads is acceptable behavior in certain situations.
When not typing furiously or flipping pages in an enthralling romance, she homeschools her two beautiful girls and watches reality television with her amazing husband. Taste The Heat is her adult romance debut. She’s the author of MY SUPER SWEET SIXTEENTH CENTURY and A TALE OF TWO CENTURIES. She loves hearing from readers! Find her atwww.RachelHarrisWrites.com.
