Dog Walker Caitlin Ramos’s morning is off to a horrible start. Her building doesn’t have hot water, the deli where she gets her morning coffee isn’t able to make coffee, and she gets rained on while walking to see her 7am client, Beauregard. But, in an “oh my” jaw dropping moment, her day picks up in a memorable meet/cute when she lays eyes on Beau’s owner for the first time. Taylor Blankenship is at his wits end. His two-year-old Saint Bernard has decided to swallow a family heirloom and Taylor doesn’t have time to wait Beau out. Luckily he runs into his dog walker and is able to convince her to help him out. In a comedy of errors, Caitlin and Taylor find themselves pretending to be engaged during his family’s fun filled weekend getaway. For these two, the line between make believe and reality gets blurred and hearts get put to the test. Three Day Fiancée is the standalone second book in Marissa Clarke’s Animal Attraction series. The book and series are loosely related to Marissa’s Anderson Brothers series. From start to finish, I loved this book. I honestly thought the laughs would just be in the beginning of this meet/cute, but they actually continued throughout the book. Taylor is a to die for hero who’s funny, charming, and sweet. Caitlin is a likeable and relatable heroine. She wants to make up for her past mistakes and make something of her life. She doesn’t necessarily believe it or know it, but she’s braver and stronger than she gives herself credit for. If you’re looking for a read that you can simply lose yourself in, that will have you laughing and sighing, Three Day Fiancée is definitely the book for you. **Received a copy from the author and voluntarily reviewed the book.**

Caitlin dropped out of college to get married. It didn't work out and now, older and wiser, she's not ready to trust another man again. Working with her two best friends at Animal Attraction, she is working as a dog walker while finishing her degree. When this story begins, Caitlyn is having the worst day of her life, until she enters her client's apartment to pick up his dog. Beauregard (Beau) is a huge Saint Bernard with an attitude problem. He was being chased around the apartment by his handsome owner, Taylor Blankenship, wearing only a towel. One thing led to another and he and Caitlyn end up faking an engagement for a three day weekend in the Catskills. Taylor is a helicopter pilot working for the Anderson Brothers. He will shortly be moving to Boston for a promotion. He also works crazy hours and does not want a serious relationship. His grandmother has been pestering him to find a woman to have a relationship with. When she mistakenly believes that Taylor and Caitlyn are engaged, they pretend for a weekend at her Birthday Celebration. I love the humorous and playful way that Caitlyn and Taylor interact. His family has such a great relationship with one another that Caitlyn falls in love with them as well. I do not want to spoil the story for anyone, but the hilarious antics at the Animal Attraction Ball made me laugh out loud. I am so glad that Grams was such a smart lady and was able to see beyond what Taylor and Caitlyn could see for themselves. Taylor's sister Bethany was a hoot. It was a great brother-sister relationship with family bickering and teasing that showed how much they cared about one another. This was a great second chance romance story as well as a story that made you feel good reading it. Besides the short sexual scene, this was good, clean fun and would make a wonderful Hallmark Movie. I requested and received a copy of this book from the publisher, the comments in this review are my own.

Delightful! What can I say, I am a sucker for the faux fiancée trope. You know going into it that there will be a "deal," then shenanigans, secrets, and juicy repercussions. And Caitlin and Taylor's three-day journey did not disappoint! My first time reading Marissa Clarke and I found her writing style easy-breezy, well paced, with just enough angst to keep my interest, and enough clever dialog to make me fall in love with everyone LOL. And Beauregard. And Taylor's grandma. Lurved me some Grams! I will read Marissa Clark again, for sure. Fiona's character?....hmmmm.... One last note: That Cover! I can't say why this one caught my eye, but those laughing faces and giant puppy body called to me. #unapologeticromantic *ARC received through Netgally for an honest review* My first Negally review! Winner-winner!!

4.5 Stars I loved this book so much. I couldn't put it down. The characters gripped me into the story. It had great humor that had me laughing through the whole book. Taylor's family was a hoot. One of my favorite parts of the book. How can you not fall for a guy who treats his dog like the family he is. It's definitely swoon worthy material. I can't recommend this book enough because right from the beginning it had me hooked and it's a book you'll be sad to see end.

4.5stars This was great amazing funny read. I loved every page of it. Both Caitlin and Tylor are great developed and easy to love. Their chemistry is strong and in a way, they fall very fast in love. At first, it is just a charade for Tylor family but the feeling become fast very deep. But Caitlin had already unsuccessful marriage behind her and Tylor starts a new job in a new city. A magic word from grandmother changes everything. Great enjoyable read. I volunteered to review an ARC of this book for Xpresso Book Tours

When Caitlin walks in a nearly naked Taylor chasing his huge dog Beau around the lounge little does she expect for things to turn out the way they do. A gloriously romantic story with a little bit of hot throw in too.

A cute read! Taylor and Caitlin are brought together by a Saint Bernard and a misunderstanding with a family heirloom (and OMG, that floss trick is real! But if you have a giant, flat oval stone, it's not nearly as effective, sadly) and soon they're on their way to a three-day family weekend, fake engagement in tow. Hi-jinks ensue (egged on by aforementioned Saint Bernard and nosy relatives) and of course they're soon becoming more attracted to each other than they'd anticipated going in (which of course was not at all. They each thought the other was attractive, but they "don't have time for a relationship," naturally...) Cute though fairly predictable ending--if you haven't read the first book in the series yet ( Dear Jane ) no worries; this one works well as a standalone. Now, by my calculations, we have at least one more Animal Attractions employee who needs to find an HEA... ;) Rating: 3.5 stars / B- I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

Marissa Clarke never fails to delight me with her romantic comedies, including this insta-love romance with an emphasis on family relationships. Caitlin goes from daily dog-walker to fake relationship when an engagement rings ends up on her finger just in time for Taylor's grandma to show up, resulting in her joining him on a three day family excursion to celebrate Grams birthday. There are lots of fun family togetherness and wacky party games, as well as the opportunity to get a crash course in fake engagements with real sexy times. For Caitlin who missed out on having a caring family it's almost too good to be true, and difficult for her to consider translating the real feelings she's starting to have for Taylor into the possibility of more when their weekend is up. It's up to Taylor to convince her otherwise. Beauregard the Swiss Bernard gets a starring secondary character role. I recommend Ms. Clarke's romances if you're looking for lighthearted, sexy and fun reads with likable characters and guaranteed happy ever afters.

Such a cute story! Of course, one of my favorite kind of stories are those with animals in them, so when I started reading and it has a dog in it, I totally got into. Loved this story!

Caitlin was asked by her friend to walk a very difficult Saint Bernard for an extreme particular and difficult client. Caitlin hit it off right away with the dog…until she accidently runs into the Saint Bernard’s owner in the buff. Chemistry flies and it gives Taylor, the difficult client, an idea. He wants Caitlin to act as his pretend fiancé on his family weekend getaway. The family, his grandmother, has been on his case for him to find a wife. Caitlin is just what he needs to get his grandmother off his back. Little did he know she was exactly what he needs for the rest of his life. I loved the family dynamics. This was one of those novels that you are spontaneously smiling away and everyone around you thinks you’ve lost your mind…yes, it’s that good. Three Day Fiancee is the perfectly crafted contemporary love story. I received this ARC copy of THREE DAY FIANCEE from Entangled Publishing, LLC - Lovestruck. This is my honest and voluntary review.

Rating: 4.5/5 From the very start this fun romance had me laughing out loud. Caitlin Ramos is the only dog walker who seems able to cope with Taylor Blankenship’s boisterous St Bernard, Beau. One day as she enters his flat to collect the dog she meets Taylor for the first time – clad in a towel and chasing Beau round the room, what a sight. When Taylor’s grandmother later believes Caitlin is secretly engaged to him, Taylor convinces her to be his fake fiancée for just three days . . . . and the fun begins! This is a hilarious story, packed with fun, games, family and laughs galore. The family dynamics and friend relationships are so important in this story. Caitlin hates being told what to do and Taylor has a habit from his military days of ordering her around – something she definitely resists! As the attraction between the two grows, the fact that he’s soon to move to work in Boston whilst she plans to work with her two friends in New York makes it unlikely this romance can succeed. Can love find a way for them or is their love doomed from the start? If you enjoy the fake romance trope, you’ll love this superb romantic comedy. It is a cute, contemporary read with great characters, a manipulative gran and, of course, Beau! It is a delightful story to escape into and one that will definitely put a smile on your face I requested and was given a copy of this novel, via NetGalley, with no obligation. This is my honest review of the book after choosing to read it.

4.5 Stars! Three Day Fiancee by Marissa Clarke is a fun book! This engagement of convenience romance is replete with intelligent characters, sexy encounters, and a humongous canine that believes he is a lap dog at times. If you are looking for a quick-paced read with some very humorous situations, than pick up a copy of this book. Dog-walker Caitlin Ramos is still recovering from her bad marriage when she meets Taylor Blakenship, a helicopter pilot and owner of one of her clients, a slobbering Saint Bernard. Once Caitlin passes her CPA exam, her dog walking days will be over, and she will become a full partner in the pet care shop she and her two friends founded. Caitlin is just what Taylor needs to convince his family, most especially his grandmother, that he is happily engaged to be married. Taylor is tired of being harassed about his single status, and spending the weekend with his beloved family would be even lovelier if he had a fiancee. Once the three day weekend is over, he and Caitlin can go their separate ways, no strings attached. Naturally, this arrangement turns into much more, since they both find each other extremely attractive and likable. I really enjoyed this story. Caitlin and Taylor had wonderful chemistry, and they lit up the pages when they were together. In addition, the secondary characters and subplots were just as entertaining as the main story-line. Taylor's grandmother and his sister were quite comical at times, and there were many moments that I was smiling from ear to ear. Overall, this is a terrific romance and I can't wait to read more from this author. Complimentary copy provided by the publisher via NetGalley.

I love the fake fiancée trope and Marissa’s words, so I jumped on this one as soon as I saw it. I really liked Caitlin and Taylor. They’re both driven and lovely people. Together they have excellent chemistry and love for animals. Seriously, I think Beau absolutely stole every scene he was in. Or perhaps it was Grams... Plot wise, it was adorable. I loved the weekend festivities and a meddling family was an added bonus. There was a bit of push and pull, but Caitlin and Taylor talked so much, there wasn’t room for any miscommunications and it was so refreshing to read. Overall, it was a super cute quick read with an epilogue that was perfection. My main complaint is that I wanted more. I could have easily read more with these two. **Huge thanks to Entangled Lovestruck for providing the arc free of charge**

What a great read! I really enjoyed this book, and loved the main characters, Taylor and Caitlin. And of course Beau, the lap dog St. Bernard! The story flowed and the secondary characters were great. I really liked the world the author created and wished I could have spent more time in it. It was one of those stories that just flew by, and I laughed and sighed and wished I could have been a partner at Animal Attraction. I’m just hoping that we’ll get Fiona’s story soon. She deserves a happy ending, too. Disclaimer: I received a ARC from the author in return for an honest review.

4 “Nonstop dreaming of shenanigans” Stars As the first book in the Animal Attraction series, Three Days Fiancée was a fun, light and sexy read I enjoyed from start to finish. Here we follow the story of Caitlyn, dog-walker extraordinaire soon to be a CPA and Taylor, sexy hot guy/helicopter pilot. A series of unfortunate events finds Cait stranded in Taylor’s apartment waiting for Beau, a giant fluffy pup, to pass an expensive ring he’s swallowed. Fortunately, for Cait mostly, she finds the ring stuck in the dog’s mouth and just so happens to try it on as Taylor’s busybody and matchmaking grandmother comes in. Cue in massive misunderstanding that Taylor walks in on and then decides to exploit to get his Grandmother off his case. Now all they have to do is pretend to be happily engaged for a three-day anniversary party, and then go back to their own lives where Cait does nothing but work and study for her test and Taylor is out flying his bosses at any given time. With a powerful and instant attraction, both Taylor and Caitlyn have to fight the pull if they dare walk away with their hearts intact… as we all know, though, things never go according to plan. Taylor was the total package, he came off as a bit of an anti-commitment jerk at first, but he was funny and charming, a total hunk beef and sexy as all get out. He was really awesome to his dog and his family and I really liked to see him fall for Cait. Caitlyn had a very bad experience with men in her past, which left her more than gun shy. She had a lot of walls up, but Taylor and his crazy family tore right through them. She was very standoffish, which isn’t my favorite trait in a leading lady, but she ended up being cute and fun and was capable of deep feelings. I know the “fake relationship” trope is not for everyone but I personally enjoy it very much, and Three Days Fiancée was a perfect example of why. With feelings, humor, and some seriously hot scenes, this checked all my boxes. Taylor’s family was just the frosting that made this sexy and fun cake even better. *I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book*

If you're looking for a fun, lighthearted book with some amazing characters look no further. This book is all that and a great relaxing read. It's cute, sexy, and as a bonus it has a big overgrown pooch that steals the story! It's a fake relationship story that is filled with humor including some laugh out loud moments as Taylor tries to pull a fast one over on his Grams. He introduces her to his fake fiance Caitlin. Actually Caitlin is his dog walker and not at all interested in a relationship. Plus Mr. BossyPants Taylor is so not her type! Caitlin is certain she'll be fine spending the weekend with Taylor and his family. So where did it all go so wrong....or right?? For a light relaxing read grab a copy of this one. I highly recommend it.

A fun easy ready. Filled with comedy, romance and some steamy scenes. Taylor and Caitlin might have started their fake relationship/ engagement to get Taylor’s grandmother out of his hair and leave him alone but as Taylor and Caitlin spend the weekend together they both realize that what they shared that weekend was nothing they had expected. Caitlin might have a lot of baggage that might prevent her to fully committ to Taylor but at the end true love prevailed. Loved this book and I can’t wait to read more of Marissa Clarke. ****Received this ARC by NetGalley as an exchange for an honest review.

This is a delightful book that made me smile and laugh out loud, while also swooning over Taylor. I even swooned over the dog....what could be better than a Saint Bernard that thinks he's a lapdog? Taylor is a pilot getting ready to move to Boston and Caitlin is a dog walker preparing for her CPA exam. When she meets Taylor and ends up pretending to be his fiancee, they both get more than they bargained for, but exactly what they need. Taylor's grandma found ways to pull their strings and is just wonderful....everyone should have a grandmother like her. This is a perfect read for when you just want to smile. I love this authors' books and she is on my must read authors' list. This is a must read for fans of the genre.
