A swoon-worthy, buttery, uber-fun romance about a marriage of convenience between two people who couldn’t be more wrong for each other…You know what’s great about applying for an art history Ph.D. program at one of the world’s most prestigious universities? I get to study what I love and land my dream job at the end of it. You know what’s not so great? Being told I’ll only get accepted to the program if I gain access to my aloof, uppity, super grumpy boss’s private art collection.As it turns out, said boss—a one Lord Hayden Stuart—needs to get married to inherit his late father’s estate and earldom. And if there’s one thing Hayden Stuart is never going to want for real—it’s a wife.So, we strike up a deal: I marry him and go live at his castle, where I’ll have unlimited access to his collection, he gets his earldom, and when the estate is settled, we part ways forever.Win-win, right?Wrong.I may have fooled myself into believing I wasn’t risking my heart, but there’s one huge problem: I’m definitely falling for him. He’s not just another man. He’s THE man—an irresistibly good-looking, in-control, expensive-suit-wearing man who makes all the other men look like little boys. And the more time I spend with him pretending to be his wife, the more desperate I become to believe the lie.But he’s never going to fall for some lowly Ph.D. student. So what if at the wedding he looked at me as if I’m the only woman in the world, and kissed me like he’s shipping off to war in the morning? It doesn’t mean anything.Or does it?Because the more we’re together, the more I realize that, even though we’re from totally different worlds, we have a lot more in common than I ever could have imagined.Now all I have to do is convince him he really does want a wife…*** Even Better Than the Real Thing is a standalone romance with a little extra spice than a regular Melanie Summers book. ***

What an easy and fun book! Hayden and Finley were easy to fall in love with! They made putting this book down super hard!
I have to say,, I’m a huge fan of Melanie Summers’ rom-coms, and this is no exception. She’s a master at character building and her people seem so real! This is a sweet romance about a peanut-farmer’s daughter and an Earl. They fake- marry so he can receive his inheritance but fall in love for real! The ending is a little bit of a surprise, but very sweet! Worth a read!
I really enjoyed the characters and could not put this book down. A very fun book to read. Definitely will be reading more of this author!!
Loved this book. It had everything… a strong, yet vulnerable woman, a likeable guy who doesn’t know what he really needed until he let it go, and some steamy but tastefully done sexy stuff. 10 out of 10.
Omg I had a hard time putting this book down!! I literally wanted to stop everything and read till I finished ! Such a fun , sweet story ! Melanie has done it again !! Filling my heart with such happiness !!!!
