The Rom Con

By Devon Daniels
The Rom Con by Devon Daniels digital book - Fable

Publisher Description

A modern battle of the sexes about a journalist who hatches an elaborate plan to take down her industry adversary, from the author of Meet You in the Middle.

After a particularly brutal breakup, Cassidy Sutton has had it with dating. So when her grandmother gives her a 1950’s dating guide entitled 125 Tips to Hook a Husband, she decides to turn the retro advice into an ironic “What not to do” article for Siren, the popular online women’s publication she writes for. And who better to secretly test the old-fashioned tips on than Jack Bradford, chauvinistic creator of rival men’s site Brawler? She’ll write an article that will entertain female readers everywhere and embarrass their sexist nemesis at the same time. Two birds, one stone.

But her perfect plan soon proves to be anything but. Those vintage courtship tips Cassidy was so quick to poke fun at? They actually seem to work, calling her most closely-held beliefs into question. Even worse? Jack isn’t falling for any of her tricks—and it’s not long before their ‘fake’ relationship starts to feel like the realest one of her life. As her cat and mouse game starts to spiral out of control, Cassidy has to decide if she’s playing to win, or if she’s willing to lose it all for love.

“Pop Culture references and puns ruled this book. Taylor Swift, Friends, Adele and everything in between. Add to that an adorable grandmother character, amazing sister relationships and strong friendships and you’ve got an all star novel! Cassidy is an editor for an all female magazine who has the brilliant idea to use an old 1950s article to secure a modern day man. Jack is a modern day man who founded and is running a Men’s magazine which is the bane of every single woman’s existence. Both characters, especially the FMC, had amazing character arcs and the storyline complimented it nicely. Personal to me but this books featured an extravagant third act break-up due to miscommunication which are tell of my biggest bummers. The story is unfortunately told from the FMCs point of view and I definitely was a bigger fan of the MMC in this book so I would have loved to know what he was thinking. Overall, fun and light read, not angsty or anger invoking but if you’re looking for a good romance with very low spice, pick up this book as it leaves you with a smile.”
