Dream job. Dream house. Fake fiancé.
A year in a gorgeous Italian castle…
When Anna Roberts’ life implodes, an online search leads her to an ad for the ultimate dream job – management of a gorgeous castle on the shores of Lake Como, accommodation included. The only catch? Anna can’t do it alone…
…With the last man on earth she’d choose!
The castle owners will only accept a couple as caretakers, which means Anna needs a man on her arm at the interview. Enter her neighbour, Jake Tucker. Though Anna and Jake have never seen eye-to-eye, Jake’s had a rough few years and an escape to Italy sounds ideal. Yet, when they get the job and jet off, Anna and Jake face an unexpected challenge. Pretending to be a couple is difficult … but pretending the tension simmering between them doesn’t exist is quickly proving impossible!
The Italian Job by Kathryn Freeman definitely had potential though it ended up being just ok for me. The pacing was hard to get into. It was also hard to stay interested in the book at times.
I didn’t always like the main girl character Anna. I did however like how she stood up for Jake at the end.
Fake dating for jobs is not my favorite trope but I liked how it worked out.
The Italian job was a three star rating for me. Thank you Netgalley and publishers for allowing me the chance to read and review. My thoughts are my own.
Thank you for reading!
