The premise for this book is intriguing, although I thought it a little implausible for both of the main characters to end up with three kids each that they were trying to hide from each other. There were some humorous parts and quite a bit of fun banter between Jett and Cassie, who were both engaging and likeable characters. I was a little disappointed that, for me, it didn’t live up to its title and description. It was also lighter on the romance than I thought it would be. This is Melissa Ferguson’s debut novel, and I’m looking forward to seeing what else she can come up with.

I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy from the publisher through NetGalley. All opinions are my own. ( )

The Dating Charade is the debut novel by author Melissa Ferguson. From reading the synopsis, I expected a fun rom com book. Although there were aspects of a romantic comedy, there was so much more. I was totally pulling for main characters Cassie and Jett as they balance jobs, relationships, and some other curve balls thrown their way. I definitely felt like this story engaged me as the reader, tugged on my heartstrings, and had me rooting for the main characters. Her next novel, The Cul de Sac War releases in the fall and I can't wait!

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Net Galley. The opinions expressed in this review are entirely my own. ( )

Entertaining but nothing outstanding - who has a fight about kids and then never speaks to each other again? The conflict was kind of weird. ( )

First of all, thank you in advance to Prism Book Tours and the publisher Thomas Nelson (aka: TNZ Fiction) for providing a complimentary copy for review. A positive review was not requested or required. All words are my own.

Cassie Everson is an expert at escaping bad first dates – she’s even mastered the best way to get out of them beyond the “fake” emergency involving a fake friend scam. She’s just about to retire her hopes for a husband and children. More like giving up on children. It’s not that she doesn’t want them – she can’t have them.

Fate and a friend have other plans for Cassie when she is unwittingly matched with firefighter Jett Bentley who she went to school with, but doesn’t remember. Jett does remember Cassie though.

They have a great first date – but … then they each inherit three kids. For Jett, they’re his nephews and niece; Cassie ends up with three siblings, one that volunteers were she works.

Of course, they keep it a secret until they can sort everything out.

Things that grabbed me right off – there’s a firefighter involved. It’s set in a few “smaller” towns in Tennessee I’m familiar with, that’s another bonus. And, kids!

So, I honestly couldn’t wait to read it.

It started off great – romance in the modern century. Then the kids entered the situation for both Cassie and Jett. And, where I thought this would be a romance novel, with a “dating with kids twist” – it, at least to me – turned into more of a family drama story with both Cassie and Jett finding their way with the kids they’ve inherited. And, neither one knowing about the other’s situation with miscommunication occurring.

There are a few moments that made me laugh. However it wasn’t the funny, romantic-comedy novel I was expecting.

The realism, disappointment, and frustration in adopting or inheriting three children are present and Ferguson does a great job in conveying it. I can’t attest to the realistic portrayal though.

There are also a lot of tense moments and a dramatic scene at the end with the romance between Cassie and Jett coming in the last chapters.

It does have the “love comes in small packages”; “best-laid plans aren’t nearly as rewarding”, “happy” ending. However, this lacks in the romance part.

Despite the disappointment from the blurb being different as to my expectations, this was a delightful read. It was heart-warming and often heart-tugging.

I won’t spoil it, but towards the end there were more details I would’ve liked to have known as to what happened with the kids that led to certain events. I don’t know if that differs from the ARC to publication, but it would’ve made the ending far more dramatic and wholesome.

It is a “clean read” from the Thomas Nelson Fiction line, which is part of the HarperCollins Christian Publishing division. There are little to no “Christian” references though. Readers of the Harlequin Heartwarming series might like this particular novel.

“The Dating Charade” is Melissa Ferguson’s debut album, and is available at retailers, including Amazon, nationwide on December 3, 2019.

Rated 3½ stars ( )

Melissa Ferguson’s debut The Dating Charade is a delight. It easily lived up to my expectations—and more. If you are looking for a rom-com with some serious heart, this is the book for you.

Thanks to the joys of online dating, Cassie Everson has lost faith that she will find her person. Firefighter Jett Bentley has the potential to surprise her—but when each takes charge of three children, doubt colors their possibilities for the future. Will Cassie and Jett accept these changes in circumstances, or must they go it alone?

With a connection from the past, Cassie and Jett make a believable couple caught in a web of uncertainties and new romance. I had fun guessing at how they would navigate both the comical moments and the more complicated ones. And as they figure it out, their story proves heartwarming and sweet and oh so wonderful. I will definitely be revisiting this book in the future.

I received a complimentary copy of this book and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own. ( )
