Incredible You by Lili Valente
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Lili Valente’s INCREDIBLE YOU is an entertaining and action-filled story. NHL star Jake “The Dragon” Falcone hires Shane Willoughby to be his fake girlfriend to help take down his evil ex-girlfriend, Keri Warner. This contemporary sports romance takes place in New York. It is suitable for adult audiences.
I like Jake. He had a difficult childhood. He worked hard and he now plays hockey for the New York Rangers. He is thirty years old. He is a good guy. He’s protective.
Shane is an interesting character. She is thirty-two years old. Her parents died when she was ten. She was raised by her aunt. She is a vet, which I respect because I love animals. She is a strong individual. She has some great insights. I enjoyed her sense of humor.
I enjoyed Jake’s and Shane’s text to one another. I love their nick names: dragon and princess. The names are very appropriate and cute for them as a couple.
I could see why Jake was originally attracted to Keri. I felt bad for what he went through with her. She has some serious issues. I thought the concept of Magnificent Bastard Consulting (MBC) was interesting. A company that helps you get revenge on your ex.
INCREDIBLE YOU was skillfully written. It flowed well and was interesting throughout the novel. There were appealing twists. The characters were well-developed and, the story was believable. This was the first book I have read by Lili Valente. I would read more novels by her in the future. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.
