The Accidental Girlfriend, an all-new hilarious romantic comedy from New York Times bestselling author Emma Hart is available now!
Top Tip: Don’t put out an online ad offering your services as a fake date. Someone will take you up on it.
And it won’t just be for one night.
And that, ladies and gentlemen, is how I ended up being Mason Jackson’s fake girlfriend.
He didn’t even want me to be. No—his sister was solely responsible for me being his date for his ten-year high school reunion.
Now, she’s responsible for telling his parents our relationship is real.
We have no choice. We have to act like this isn’t all a mistake, like it’s not all fake, like we’re totally, completely, utterly, head-over-heels in love with each other.

“I’ve seen you eat nothing but junk. Are you one of those irritating people who can eat what they want and put on no weight?”
“Okay, first.” I held up one finger. “You look like you could walk into the cast of the Avengers, so don’t come at me with that. Also, I run. Every day. And I don’t always eat junk.”
“You run?” His eyebrows shot up.
“I don’t know if I should be insulted or not.”
“No, I just—you don’t look like a runner.”
“And you don’t look like Chris Hemsworth, but here you are on my sofa looking like a dark-haired Norse god,” I shot back. “What’s your point?”
He held up his hands, fighting another laugh, one that made his eyes shine. “Hey, I have a physical job. I rarely get to the gym, but I’m always moving.”
“Have you ever worked behind a bar? I’m not exactly running a call center back there. It never stops sometimes.”
“Do I look like I mix cocktails?”
Doing what he’d done just minutes before, I took a long, hard look at him, from head to toe.
It was a mistake.
If I were a sloth, I wouldn’t just climb him like a tree; I’d hang off him for a nap, too.
Lord, he was hot.
“No,” I said. “You look like the lone wolf who waits for the cocktail-drinking girls to accidentally spill their drinks on your shoes.” I glanced at the time. “Speaking of, I have to go and make those cocktails.”
Mason grinned. “You want me to come and get hit on by drunk girls?”
“As someone who has no say in your life whatsoever, I don’t care what you do.” I stood up and looked at him over my shoulder. “As your fake girlfriend, I’m a bit of a tiger, so I wouldn’t.”
“I know.” He snorted, following me to the front door with his laptop tucked under his arm. “I’ve seen you play the possessive girlfriend. If this weren’t all fake, I would have been a little turned on.”
I locked the front door and tossed my hair over my shoulder. “Please. You were totally turned on.”
He said nothing as we headed for the stairs.
“You can say something. That was a joke.” I glanced at him, heat rushing to my cheeks.
His lips pulled into a smirk, eyes flashing. “I reserve the right to not respond.”

“Name: Lauren Green Age: 25 Profession: I’d have to kill you if I told you“
The Accidental Girlfriend tells the story of Lauren and Mason, two people happy being single and not looking for relationships. He has been cheated on by his long time girlfriend, and she just hasn’t ever found someone who can handle her brand of crazy. She places a Craigslist ad for her services as a fake date and his sister feels he needs a date to his high school reunion. What follows is romantic comedy goodness that includes a cat who likes to sit on heads, stripping grandpas, nosy neighbors and cheeseburgers.
“You’re something else do you know that?“ “Something else? What do you mean?“…“If you mean a total delight, hilarious, a pleasure to be around, then you’re right. Anything else, you’re wrong.“
Emma Hart never fails in creating a heroine who is relatable in some way or another. Lauren loves food, has no filter, and fully accepts that she can be a bitch at times. Mason is sweet and has a matching sense of humor and as sarcastic a personality as Lauren. They work great together as friends and more. Seriously the conversations between them, both in person and text, had me laughing out loud. Also, I really appreciated that when their true feelings are put out on the table there wasn’t any drawn out denial on either of their parts. They both acknowledge that more scares them but it’s worth it.
“Hugging Mason was like wrapping yourself up in a blanket burrito. […] Like wearing sweats and no bra while you’re eating last night’s cold pizza. […] Yeah. He was just … comfortable.“
The Accidental Girlfriend by Emma Hart is a fun quick read that will be sure to put a smile on your face. A fake relationship story done successfully!
“Holy sh*t, we’re gonna have to find a middle ground on the witty, snarky chat. You’re exhausting.“
“Goddamn it. The woman was a distraction. A f*cking hilarious. beautiful distraction.“
