    When Christy Hayes asked me to review The Sweetheart Hoax I was

    When Christy Hayes asked me to review The Sweetheart Hoax I was oh so excited.  I had already read  Heart of Glass and I was so excited to read this one.  It did not disappoint.  We met Phil in Heart of Glass; he's Danny's partner in their architect business.  Phil likes to having a dashing woman on his arm at all times, but he's still looking for that special someone to share his life.  He think's he'll find that someone by dating models and the like but we know better.  Margot is a hardworking receptionist that has been simultaneously pursuing her dreams.  It is no easy task for her because things have not been handed to her on a platter.  Margot has secretly had a crush on Phil for years, but he has never quite noticed her...until she quits her job.




    I read The Sweetheard Hoax during Dewey's Readathon because I purposefully saved it.  I knew it would be a winner and it was.  I love how Christy Hayes can take a premise that we've heard before and make the characters wonderful and their story engrossing.  I think she also has a talent of connecting with the reader.  I found myself laughing out loud at the characters because I understood them, and not just because of their sense of humor.  Everything felt real, like it could happen in real life.  I don't think a premise has to be unique in romance but it has to stand out for a reason or other.  Here, Phil really is clueless and I love him for that.  I like that Margot's story isn't wrapped up perfectly in a bow but we still get the things we love to read about--the romance.  I think this one was shorter than I would have liked but it wasn't underdeveloped so it was fine.  I just wanted more.  We do get to see snippets of Kate and Danny's life but this one really is all about Phil and Margot.




    I had read a review where the reader said that she would have loved it but for the homophobia.  I actually don't think there is any homophobia here at all.  It is pretty clear from the description that Phil does not want his friends and family back home to think he is gay when he is not.  I think that would be expected from any straight man but if that bothers you, this might not be the read for you.




    Overall, we meet another loveable couple in their attempts to find the right person for them.  The premise isn't unique but the story is well-done.  Read this if you need a cute engrossing story that will make you smile.

    Excellent Read!

    This is the first book I've read by Christy Hayes, but it won't be the last. Her pacing, character development and plotting are spot on. She draws you into the story quickly, endears the characters to you, and builds tension to make an outstanding story you can't put down! Loved it!!! Now I'm going back to read Danny & Kate's story!!
