Blog Tour: The Real Thing by Melissa Foster

Author: Melissa Foster
Publisher: Montlake
Date of publication: September 2017

This sassy, spirited baker is fine with heat—but is her fake fiancé too hot to handle?
Bakery owner Willow Dalton’s friendship with Zane Walker has always been a bit complicated. Now a scrumptiously hot A-list actor, Zane’s always had a reputation as player. He’s arrogant, and he’s definitely not boyfriend material. Sure, he did Willow a favor by agreeing to take her virginity before college, but is that reason enough to go along with a fake engagement a decade later—even if it comes with a real diamond ring?
Zane should have known better. Nothing involving Willow has ever been easy. Still, he knows her better than anyone, and becoming America’s hottest new leading man means cleaning up his reputation. An “engagement” to curvy, sass-mouthed Willow is the perfect PR move . . . provided no one gets hurt.
Now Zane and Willow’s little white lie has turned into an irresistible recipe for sweet temptation. And soon no one will be able to tell the difference between their fake engagement or the real thing—including them.

The Real Thing is the first in a new series and features a cute friends to lover/second chances story.  Zane and Willow grew up together.  He was her first, but their relationship never had a chance to get off the ground.  Now he is a big time movie star and needs her to help him clean up his image.   

For the most part, I enjoyed the book.  The characters were fun.  I especially loved all of Willow's family and how they rallies around her.  Their stories will be fun to read.  I loved Zane.  It was fun watching him woo Willow into believing he loved her and had for a long time.  The one thing I didn't really like about the story was the speed that they went from being fake engaged to admitting feelings for each other.  I almost wanted more  angst or complications.  It was just a little too easy for me. While there was nothing completely new here, it's still a fun and quick read.  I look forward to more in the future.
