Imagine this.

You’re ready to leave after a one-night stand, and you’re figuring out how to—shock horror—leave your number and ask him to be your fake boyfriend for your sister’s wedding this weekend.

When he wakes up.

Well, that happened to me. And over coffee and omelets, I found myself a date.

Which was how I ended up arriving at the wedding with a guy I knew nothing about.

I didn’t know his last name, or how we met, or how long we’d been dating. I didn’t know where he grew up, what he’d majored in in college, or how many siblings he had.

I sure as hell didn’t know he was Adam Winters, hotshot hockey player, and not only my father’s favorite player, but my little nephew’s freakin’ idol.

Which means I’m in trouble. Big, big trouble.

My mother is suspicious, my sister is bridezilla on crack, and my grandpa will tell anyone who’ll listen about his time in Amsterdam’s Red Light District.

Four days.

I have to keep this up for four days, and then Adam and I can return to our regular lives, where we don’t have sex whenever we’re alone, and my family aren’t interrogating him over his intentions with me.

At least, that’s the plan.

And we all know what happens to those.

My Review

Poppy Dunn is definitely my favorite kind of heroine because she embraces her awkwardness and her sassiness, and she isn’t afraid to be who she is and say what she feels regardless of who she might offend. In my opinion, Poppy is most women’s snarky and inappropriate inner self – the one who they would love to bring out into the open but can’t for fear of how other people will react and/or how they will be perceived.

Between her hilarious graphic tees with funny and sarcastic sayings and how freely Poppy is with her mouth, she’s truly a genuine person and while she may seem like a hot mess most of the time, she holds things together more than she thinks and proves to be a  breath of albeit smartass air.

Poppy and Adam’s story, Four Day Fling, opens up with another awkward moment in the life of Poppy Dunn, but the morning after what was meant to be a one-night stand proves to be the start of a beautiful four-day fake relationship, well except for the off-the-charts sex, but in true Poppy fashion, the reality of who she asked to be her fake boyfriend remains unknown to her until her hockey fanatic family lets her in on who her one-night stand/four day bedmate/fake boyfriend and it’s none other than Adam Winters, star forward for the Orlando Storms, making things even more awkward and way more complicated than Poppy could have anticipated.

Being a professional athlete is definitely not conducive for being in any kind of romantic relationship, which means that Adam Winters is all for one and done connections, but for some reason, he accepts Poppy’s offer of hot sex in exchange for posing as her boyfriend to prevent her mother from judging her even more than she already does.

Poppy’s crazy family is a huge part of the story line and they are responsible for an array of funny antics, inappropriate discussions, and nitpicking comments that threaten to make Poppy’s sister ‘bridezilla,’ her grandfather even more crazy than he already was, and her mother in need of a Xanax or two in order to make her chill out and to keep her unaware of the reality of Poppy and Adam’s relationship.

Every time I read one of Emma Hart’s romantic comedies, I know I’m going to get a hilarious, somewhat awkward and definitely steamy read with a hero and heroine who have a stronger connection than they want to admit and a crew of supporting characters who add to the already established mischief and chaos created by the main characters.

I really enjoyed Poppy and Adam’s story and the fact that it was more than obvious just how real things were between them from the start, and as they attempt to make it through the four day wedding extravaganza what they need to figure out is if their fling can become a forever despite how it all began.

4 Poison Apples

Excerpt

“Ready?” Adam strolled out of the bedroom, playing with the button on his shorts.

“For lunch with my mother?” I turned and stared at him, expressionless. “I’m thrilled.”

He laughed and adjusted the short sleeve of his white shirt. “It’s what—an hour? Then she’ll be back snapping at your sister’s ankles. Surely you can give Rosie a break for sixty whole minutes.”

“Oh no. I’ve done that guilt trip my entire life. I’m not getting it from my fake boyfriend, too.” I waggled my finger at him before turning back to the mirror to finish my make-up. “And yes, I can give her a break, but it doesn’t mean I need to be happy about it.”

“Do you ever get along?”

“Yes. When I’m in Orlando and she’s in Key West.”

“I mean when you’re together.”

“In the same room together, or having a conversation together?”

“Now you’re just being awkward, Red.”

I brushed a final stroke of mascara over each of my eyes, then stopped, wand in hand, and met his eyes in the reflection of the mirror. “Given how you ended up here, I would have thought you knew that awkward was my default mode.”

“That was cute-awkward. This is attitude-awkward.”

“How do you know there’s a difference?”

He pointed at himself. “Four sisters. I grew up with attitude-awkward. I could recognize it blindfolded with hands cuffed behind my back from two hundred miles away.”

“Wow. Someone’s cocky.”

“I thought we established that the night we met.”

My cheeks flushed. Damn it. Why did I have to blush like an idiot? Oh, that’s right. I was a redhead and so pale I was a distant relative of Casper the Friendly Ghost, which meant you could see my blushing a mile off.

“You’re adorable when you blush.” Adam grinned.

“Thank God,” I drawled. “That was my life goal. Be adorable. Now, I can get it in neon lights over my bed.”
