Book Review! My Fake Rake by Eva Leigh

My Fake Rake (Union of the Rakes #1) by Eva Leigh
Genre: Adult Fiction (Historical Romance)
Date Published: November 26, 2019
Publisher: Avon

In the first book in Eva Leigh's new Union of the Rakes series, a bluestocking hires a faux suitor to help her land an ideal husband only to be blindsided by real desire…

Lady Grace Wyatt is content as a wallflower, focusing on scientific pursuits rather than the complications of society matches. But when a handsome, celebrated naturalist returns from abroad, Grace wishes, for once, to be noticed. Her solution: to "build" the perfect man, who will court her publicly and help her catch his eye. Grace's colleague, anthropologist Sebastian Holloway, is just the blank slate she requires.

In exchange for funding his passage on an expedition leaving London in a few months, Sebastian allows Grace to transform him from a bespectacled, bookish academic into a dashing—albeit fake—rake. Between secret lessons on how to be a rogue and exaggerated public flirtations, Grace's feelings for Sebastian grow from friendship into undeniable, inconvenient, real attraction. If only she hadn't hired him to help her marry someone else...

Sebastian is in love with brilliant, beautiful Grace, but their bargain is complete, and she desires another. Yet when he's faced with losing her forever, Sebastian will do whatever it takes to tell her the truth, even if it means risking his own future—and his heart.

My Fake Rake is the first book in the Union of the Rakes series by Eva Leigh. I loved this story. The characters were fun. I'm always a fan of friends to more romances anyway, and this was pretty cute all around with a bit of naughtiness too. Grace and Sebastian are perfectly nerdy and adorable. They've been best friends for so long, neither is brave enough to take it further, and neither thinks the other wants to take it further either. I wish Grace didn't put so much effort into getting the attentions of another man for as long as she did, but I think her new emotions were causing her to feel completely tospy turvy. It made the girl act a bit wonky sometimes. I read this one super fast and enjoyed every minute of it. The characters were super fun, even the supporting characters were enjoyable. I can't wait for more books in this series.
