ARC Review: Not Pretending Anymore by Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward


I’ve been in a book funk lately and Not Pretending Anymore by two of my favorite authors Penelope Ward & Vi Keeland was exactly the book I needed to pull me out! This book was excellent from start to finish and I couldn’t put it down! These two never disappoint, but honestly Declan and Molly’s story could very well be my favorite from them ever!

Declan and Molly meet when Molly is looking for a roommate. She reluctantly agrees to let him take the room she is trying to rent out, though originally she wanted a woman roommate. These two quickly become friends and agree to help each other with their crushes by pretending to be in a relationship. Of course things soon change when they both start questioning where the line is between pretend and real as their feelings for one another begin to grow.

Declan was fantastic! I loved him so much. His sense of humor and his caring personality mixed with his vulnerability and sexiness made him impossible to resist. He was so charming and I couldn’t help but fall right along with Molly. Molly was sweet and funny and her personality fit so perfectly with Declan’s. These two had a strong bond right from the beginning that just continued to grow with each page. They also had crazy chemistry that jumped right off the page and you could tell just how hot they would be if they gave in to things for real.

Overall, this one was everything I was hoping for and more and I can’t recommend it enough. Vi and Penelope knocked this one out of the park and I can’t wait to reread it for more Declan and Molly as I am not ready to leave them behind. Can’t wait for more from Vi and Penelope as always!
