Summary: Jensen is a discouraged divorce lawyer and unlucky with love. Jared is his new neighbor, a poor business student who is hard up on cash and also extremely handsome. When Jensen loans Jared the money to get out of debt, Jared thinks of a very unconventional way to pay Jensen back. This is a classic “fake” boyfriend story with a few fun twists.
Reasons for Reccing: I have so much love for this story. One thing that stands out is that it's not a huge angst fest. The author nails the summary because it's a new twist on the old trope of having a faux boyfriend. The relationship is a slow, realistic build and I savored every second of watching them grow close. The romance when it comes is sizzling and, as someone who used to be skeptical of relationships, I could totally relate to where Jensen was coming from. If you want a lighthearted, fun read with memorable characters and a happy ending, you definitely need to give this fic a try.
