Where I Got It: I received an e-ARC in exchange for a fair and honest review.
Series: False Illusions #1
Genre: NA Contemporary Romance
Madison had it all: the wealth, the amazing condo and engaged to the boxing Heavy Weight Champion of the World.
But in reality all she had was loneliness.
Until he showed up.
Yoel’s plan was bulletproof.
Get in and get out, win the title.
He did his homework but not well enough.
He wasn’t prepared for her.
One night changes everything.
One lie blurs the lines.
When the lust and smoke clears will everything just be a false illusion?
Or will it be the biggest fight of all?
I absolutely loved this book! I made the awesome mistake of starting it during my lunch break, and I was not happy when lunch was over because it meant I had to stop reading and go back to work!
I just loved the characters, and more than that, I loved Yoel and Madison together. I love the chemistry they had, and when I was finished, I was really sad that I was finished, because I wanted to live in their world more. I understood why Madison stayed with Marcus, but I was so glad when she broke things off with him and went to New York to do her own thing. And her going to New York was even better once Yoel was involved! I just love them together, and how they gave each other space, but also seemed to support each other. They definitely had their ups and downs, but I loved that they worked it out.
Oh, Marcus! I wasn’t a big fan of Marcus, but I also want to know what his deal is! And Madison’s mom…even when she was being nice, I had a hard time liking her. I definitely got the impression Madison’s happiness wasn’t important to her at all, but I’m glad Madison did what was right for her! And that she and Yoel had such awesome friends (and that Yoel had a pretty cool family, from what I could tell).
5 stars. False Illusions really made me wish I read more contemporary romance. I think I might have to after reading it! The characters were amazing, and False Illusions was such a hard book to put down.
