Seven Day Fiancé (Love and Games #2) by Rachel Harris

Angelle Prejean is in a pickle. Her family is expecting her to come home with a fiancé—a fiance 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 fiance 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 Favourite Quotes"
"You broke through every wall I put. I can't push you away because you are already in. Not just in my heart, angel. You're in my soul."
---Seven Day Fiance, Rachel Harris
"As for Cane he'd broken her heart, but she couldn't deny he'd made the shards shake when she saw him."
---Seven Day Fiance, Rachel Harris
"You're the one I want to wake up to, the one I want to lay down at night. You're my little hellcat, in an angel's disguise."
---Seven Day Fiance, Rachel Harris
 I must say this book was nothing less than what I expected. I like romantic-heart-warming-cute stories and Seven Day Fiance was all that and more. Since the time I read Love and Games book 1, Taste the Heat, I've been waiting for this next book and I'm happy to say that it didn't disappoint me, in fact, it was even better than book 1. It was funny and sweet, exactly what I wanted to read.
Angelle had always done what was expected of her until the day she rejected her long-term boyfriend's very public proposal. She left her home and her town to move to Magnolia Springs. She was finally taking control of her life.
She became good friends with Sherry and Colby, who are Cane's sisters. Angelle had been attracted to Cane from the start but she knew that he was not the settling kind of guy and she was not interested in getting her heart broken. But when she saved him from one of his nasty-ex and then propositioned him to become her fake fiance for the week, all bets were off.
Cane wanted Angelle and this was his chance. He planned to charm her. It wasn't easy though, what with her overbearing family, an ex who was still hoping to gain her affections back and Cane's habit of never letting anyone in.
But all that didn't matter when he realised that she was already in and the only way they could be happy was to accept that fact and give their relationship the chance it deserved.
It was a great read. A fun story which made me laugh many times, especially the scene at the auction about best abs contest was hilarious. Cane&Angelle is now one of my most favourite fictitious couples. They compliment each other and their characters made this book all the more enjoyable. All the secondary characters were well written as well. I hope that we get to read Sherry's story soon enough. I don't know what Rachel has planned for her but while reading this book I couldn't help but imagine her with the good doctor ;)
