Anna's life has just turned upside down. She broke up with her boyfriend after she caught him cheating and lost her job and house at the same time. Back at her father's house, she looks for the dream job. And she finds it. Management of the gorgeous castle on the shore of Lake Come. Only, the owners want to hire a couple. There is someone she could ask, Jake.

Jake was her neighbour, but they never got along. He has had a tough past few years and going away to Italy for a while doesn't sound so bad.

At first, it's hard to pretend, but the more they talk, the more they connect and the sparks fly.

It's a fun fake to real romance, but that wasn't my favourite part. I loved the dialogues and the way they communicated. They butted heads a lot and were mean to each other, but somehow they worked out all of their issues- talking, apologising, and making up for the mistakes. (It's so rare to see that in books...)

Anna and Jake were both very well developed, they had depth, flaws and weaknesses, quirks, and past,... and it made them pop out of the pages, it made them real and I was rooting for them from the start.

Highly recommend!

happy reading,
