GR's Summary:

Angelle Prejean is in a pickle. Her family is expecting her to come home with a fiancé—a fiancé who doesn’t exist. Well, he exists, but he definitely has no idea Angelle told her mama they were engaged. Tattooed, muscled, and hotter than sin, Cane can reduce Angelle to a hot mess with one look—and leave her heart a mess if she falls for him. But when she ends up winning Cane at a charity bachelor auction, she knows just how to solve her fiancé problem.

Cane Robicheaux is no one’s prince. He doesn’t do relationships and he doesn’t fall in love. When sweet, sultry-voiced Angelle propositions him, he hopes their little game can finally get her out of his head. He doesn’t expect her to break through all his barriers. But even as Angelle burrows deeper into his heart, he knows once their seven days are up, so is their ruse.

My Take on this Journey:

Seven Day Fiance, by Rachel Harris was a fun, fast paced, light read.  I enjoyed the story line very much, and all the characters were essential to the story.  The main characters are, Angelle Prejean and Cane Robicheaux.  Angelle is roommates with Cane's sister, Sherry.  Angelle is demure, innocent, sweet, and trusting.  She has been trying to break away from her image since coming to the small town of Magnolia Springs, but has yet to shed her V card.  Instead, she has Cane's two sister's, Sherry and Colby, setting her up for an Auction in town with a twist.  The Annual Bachelor Auction.  The kickoff of the holidays is black tie, and has Angie worrying if she isn't completely out of her league, when she walks up and see's a poster of the man that has been under her skin for quite some time, the young, gorgeous, and dangerously sexy, Cane Robicheaux.  Her innocent cheeks flush red, when she see's the little bit of attire he has on for the auction.  The Robicheaux's have been like a family to her since she left her small home town of Bon Terre, and Cajun Country, but her feelings are far from brotherly when it comes to Cane, though she never will admit it to anyone.  She's the run away bride to be from her small town, and wants to become like her sister, Amber, who in her eyes was a hero, who passed in a tragic accident when they were kids. Angelle is a volunteer firefighter, works part time at a stable,  though she never had to work a day if she didn't want to.  She doesn't ever say anything about being well to do, and lives a modest life.  She is trying to live for herself and her own wants and needs for once in her life, and the distance from her over-protective family has given her that chance to become her own person.

Cane Robicheaux is the owner of the most prestigious restaurant in town, and a love them and leave them playboy. Cane will do anything for his sister's and his niece Emma.  He is actually a push over, till it comes to this auction.  Now he is madder than hell about what he has let his sisters talk him into doing, until he see's Angelle there.  No one has ever gotten to him till the day Angelle walked into his life.  He just wants one good night to get her out of his system.  Cane has been chasing her since he met her, and she keeps running from his tactics.  On the night after the auction, he gets the offer of a lifetime.  When Angelle paid handsomely, and surprised everyone, for a date in a bidding at the auction to save Cane from a crazed lunatic from his past, drunk to the hilt, Cane is very pleased in deed.  Angelle calls in a marker the next day, and asks if he will act like her fiancé for seven days to appease her family, go back to Bon Terre with her and act out their love for each other in front of the waiting town.  Cane figures he can return the favor, and get Angelle out of his system at the same time.  What Cane doesn't realize is that he is walking into a den of overprotective tigers, waiting to shred him to the bare bone if he doesn't do right by Angelle, and at the same time, this clan is going to open up a lot of feelings he has had buried for years, that will either change him for the better or send him packing for home.  There are some great twists and turns in this story, a jealous ex named Brady, her boyfriend of eight years, that Angelle left with his ring in his hand when he proposed to her in front of the whole town and she turned him down.

This was a great read, with a lot of fun characters, old town traditional values, descriptions of the old fairs that use to come to town when I was a kid.  I loved every second of it.  The memories were vividly painted by Ms. Harris and she brought it all back for me in this wonderful work of art.  Cane's two sisters with their match making schemes had me laughing out loud.  The authenticity of the dishes had my mouth watering.  Ms. Harris' prose made every dish sound delectable.  Angelle is a hot mess, and Cane is just downright HoT!!!  Don't go by the cover girls, it doesn't do this book justice!!!  I read this book straight through, there is a lot of character development, life lessons, some sad parts, and a whole lot of fun. WARNING:  Ms. Harris gives some red-hot, descriptive, love scenes.  Watch out readers, you may get scorched!!!

I give Seven Day Fiance, by Rachel Harris, 4 1/2 Sexy, Memorable, Hot, First Love, Wonderfully Romantic Stars!!!

My Favorite Quote:

Cane's mouth was heaven and hell rolled into one.  A delicious torment she never wanted to end.  The firm pressure mixed with the soft, skillful nibbles made her head spin.  His tongue dipped inside as his long fingers raked over her back.  Every muscle he touched sang under the glorious pressure, even as her lower half clenched, wanting more.  Mini-explosions went off in her insides.  Nerves pulsed.  Shockwaves reverberated down to her toes.  Body parts that had laid dormant for twenty-six years sprang to life.  A sound between a squeal and a groan left her mouth, and a rumble emanated from within Cane's chest.  She was like a blazing sign saying, take me now, and the beautiful thing was, he would be doing just that, very soon.  (Kindle Arc-loc: 1632)
