Review: Fauxmance in the Falls by J.E. Birk (Devon Falls #1)

Note: An advance reader copy (ARC) was provided by the author.

J.E. Birk's got a new series, and it's a spin-off of sorts of her two books with Sarina Bowen's True North book universe, Booklover with Vino and Veritas and Counterpoint with In Vino Veritas. That being said, Fauxmance in the Falls, which is book one in the Devon Falls series, can totally be read as a standalone, but if you're looking to add to your to-be-read list, I hope you consider including those two other novels because they were fun reads and the main characters from there do make their presence felt in Fauxmance.

This series starter is a fake relationship romance featuring main characters Benson Lewis, twenty-five and a certified law clerk, and Jack Lancer, in his mid-thirties and a doctor. Benson's arrival in Devon Falls serves as a harbinger of sorts, there to help in reclaiming land used for a much loved annual event. If successful, it would mean the end of Devon Falls's Leaf Festival, so he didn't exactly expect to be welcomed by the residents. So, how did he go from potential persona non grata to fake boyfriend to the town's beloved doc?

Well, I enjoyed the heck out of this book! Benson and Jack may have gotten together over a perceived necessity--and the former being someone who seemed intent on putting an end to the Leaf Festival, albeit indirectly, didn't seem promising of a happily-ever-after--but it did give them an opportunity to know each other in a more in depth manner, beyond the assumptions. They clicked in a way that made me believe that they were exactly what the other needed. Fauxmance in the Falls easily earns itself four stars out of five stars.
