What happens when two people who’ve given up on forever find it in each other…?
Single men are as scarce in Forever Falls as a vegetarian at a barbecue. That is, until Ethan Hammersmith moves in. After his fiancée gave him an ultimatum, he left Australia and never looked back. He isn’t in America to find a new girlfriend, though. He’s searching for the father he never knew. But now it’s like he has a flashing sign above his head that says “available.” Thankfully, the manager of the local diner is willing to give him cover—if only she weren’t so distractingly adorable.
Monroe Roberts, town misanthrope and divorcée, knocked “forever” permanently off her wish list ever since the love of her life skipped town with the cliché yoga instructor. And good riddance. She’s got this struggling diner to keep her busy, trying anything to boost sales…until a hot Australian strolls in and changes everything. Monroe’s restaurant is packed full of women who aren’t there to order food, unless Ethan is on the menu. This could sink her business faster than ever. So—light bulb—what if they pretend to be together?
It sounded like the perfect plan. It hilariously was not…

Fly Girl’s Review
I love a good Chris Hemsworth look a like and this book fit the bill terrifically. I could even hear is Australian accent when he would speak in the book. That isn’t all the book is about, Stefanie actually asks some hard questions and answers them satisfactorily, in my opinion. Her life questions are, what do you do when your marriage breaks up and you have no plan “B”? What do you do when you find out your lost parent wasn’t that impressive after all? What do you do when you are too afraid to foot one foot in front of the other on the road of life? Finally, I think the best one, what do you do when you realize your fake relationship might just be the one?
These and so many other questions get the full treatment in this laugh out loud rom com. There are some sad moments and of course one character that has no brain to mouth filter making conversations “awkward” 🙂 There is a myriad of emotions from both parties that make you want to just hug him. Although he’s pretty secretive and stoic through most of the novel, but he does realize early on she might be the more important end to his journey to find his father. Surprisingly, he isn’t too upset when he realizes his dad wasn’t as great of a person as he’d thought he might be and realizes his Mom may have had the better end of the bargain with his step-father all those years.
When Ethan starts to give her her groove back, she digs into her baking and realizes she’s one short jump from a baking career. When all else fails, rely on what you know and she knew baking so she went with it and it gave her the ability to get over her ex, realize family wasn’t always blood and give her a new zest for life and maybe a little sugar. Ethan learned how important the people are around you and the support they give is often done from the heart and not from love. For him being happy was purely about accepting he was who he was even if he wasn’t from the beginnings he believed he was.
Anyway, I loved the story and got my happily ever after without too much drama so I’m giving this a 4 of 5 rating and think it’s a good read to start off the summer with.
