That moment you catch your boyfriend in bed with another woman and then mistakenly get arrested. #awks Annie doesn't want to dwell on the fact that she walked in on her bf wearing nipple clamps on the day he was meant to propose to her. She just wants to move on - cue escaping to a tropical paradise. Life is dreamy on the beaches of Mauritius, until the nightmarish appearance of her ex and the 'other woman'. Faced with the enemy, Annie refuses to look like the sad, lonely single she actually is. She needs a decoy - and fast. Enter Chris, a sexy screenwriter who agrees to play her pretend boyfriend. But as a battle of the exes commences, the white sand, tropical heat and a pina colada (or five) might just be the cocktail for a real romance - and the adventure of a lifetime.

I give it - 5/5
My review - This was such a wonderful, heartbreaking story! It was full of heartbreak, romance, fun and so much more. It kept me gripped from the beginning and I loved every second of it. I didn't put it down once as I just needed to know what was going to happen.
I also now want to go on a beach holiday.
In this book we follow Annie. She is having the worst time. She walked in on her boyfriend, now ex-boyfriend, sleeping with his colleague and not only that, she got arrested.
Her and her friends decide to go on a holiday. They all deserve it and maybe a hot beach holiday is what Annie needs.
Until her ex and his new girlfriend show up.
Then we meet Chris. He is working on a romantic screenplay when he meets Annie. With quick thinking he pretends to be her boyfriend, that she made up, so she can rub it in their faces. But, pretending sometimes can lead to the real thing.
With them spending loads of time together and having loads of fun, can Annie open her heart up and let Chris in? Or is Chris hiding something from her that will tear them apart?
I really enjoyed this book as it had me laughing and cringing. I would do the exact same thing if I was in her shoes and this book is so much more then her moving on, it's about her growing as a person. To realise who she is and what she wants from life and I really enjoyed that and the friendship she has with her friends.
I cannot wait to read more from Jo as this book was just fantastic!
