Finding a good roommate through a classified ad isn’t as easy as it sounds.
I was starting to lose hope.
Until a knock at my door came and God answered my prayers.
Except…uh…wrong prayer, God.
I’d definitely requested the big guy find me a drop-dead gorgeous man on more than one occasion…just not as my roommate. 
Declan Tate talked me into interviewing him anyway.
While he was amusing and charismatic, I wouldn’t have been comfortable living with a man, so I regretfully declined. 
Then cupcakes showed up at my door—freshly baked by Declan and just as sinfully delicious as he was.
You could say he was persistent.
I eventually folded. It wasn’t like I had another viable candidate anyway.
Plus, I was interested in someone else. And Declan was into another woman. So it wasn’t like anything would happen romantically.
After he moved in, the two of us became the best of friends. We even started to give each other advice on getting our crushes to notice us. 
Eventually, Declan concocted an idea: we should pretend to be a couple to make our love interests jealous.
I was hesitant, but went along with it anyway. To my utter shock, his crazy plan worked. 
Now I was dating the supposed man of my dreams, and my best friend had the woman of his. 
But there was one problem.
I couldn’t stop thinking about Declan.
Those feelings we were trying to fake?
Yeah…I wasn’t pretending anymore.

Not Pretending Anymore exceeded all of my expectations and was absolute romance PERFECTION! Molly and Declan’s sweet, sexy, funny, emotional, and swoon-worthy slow burn roommates-to-lovers story was truly phenomenal in every way, and hands down one of the BEST and my FAVORITE co-written romances from Penelope Ward and Vi Keeland!

   I honestly don’t know how they’ve done it time and time again, but Ward and Keeland have consistently created fun, fresh, and unique storylines with all the feels. Molly and Declan’s slow burn roommates-to-lovers story was everything I could’ve wanted and so much more. I laughed, smiled, cried, and swooned my romance-loving heart out from start to finish, and absolutely loved the perfectly imperfect conclusion.

   The characters were out of this world amazing, and that’s putting it lightly. Molly and Declan were EVERYTHING and I loved them with all of my heart. They were incredibly special and lovable characters, and I simply adored them. Molly and Declan had fantastic personalities and delicious sexual tension. I loved all of their banter and interactions with each other, and how their relationship progressed from roommates to friends to more. It was a slow burn buildup, but definitely worth the wait. The secondary characters were equally phenomenal, and I loved them as well.

   Not Pretending Anymore was absolute romance PERFECTION and definitely one of the BEST and my FAVORITE co-written novels from Penelope Ward and Vi Keeland! I could literally go on and on about how much I loved Molly and Declan’s story, but I think you should just read it and find out for yourself how truly amazing and unforgettable this book really is.
