Fake dating is one of my favorite romance tropes! A pretend date for an ex’s wedding, a staged engagement to make someone jealous, a marriage of convenience to claim a family inheritance. When two people make a deal to act as if they’re in love for a short while, until they end up falling in love, you can’t help but root for them. Read on to find books that explore the risks and rewards of pretending to be in a relationship. You can find all of these titles at the Winchester Public Library and digitally on Libby.
