With him, there’s no faking anything…
Ethan Chase isn’t interested in dating. After losing the woman he loved more than life itself, he’d much rather ride solo, but his family is dead set on fixing him up. To get them off his back, he hooks up with ultra-adventurous, ultra-temporary adventure photographer, Rue Campbell. All he has to do is survive three weeks in her orbit and he’ll be single again, only without the pitying looks and pressure to move on.
Rue is literally counting the days until her plane leaves New York City. The last thing she wants is a relationship, but being Ethan’s pretend girlfriend can’t hurt, right? Wrong. With Ethan, there’s no faking anything—in or out of the bedroom. With the sheets burning hot and the clock ticking on their arrangement, Rue realizes she’s falling for a man guaranteed to derail her goals…and break her heart.
“Sometimes falling in love with someone , or at least moving in that direction, is reason enough to take a chance"
Cute contemporary romance and as a bonus, for once the female MC didn't work my last good nerve.
Full review to come.

The Three-Week Arrangement was a heartwarming read.

I'm so glad that Ethan has his own story with a HEA! I've enjoyed reading about the escapades of the Chase brothers and the author has skilfully made the reader feel that I've grown to know the family through her stories. Having said that, I suspect that you could also read this as a standalone n... ...more

3.5 Electric green eyes and a body that would make a nun sob for sweet relief stars. This one is better than book two; this series tends to do that with each book. It’s a cute, quick and somewhat quirky read. The plot has been used many times before but there are a few fresh twists in this one. T... ...more

3.5 “Great inner conflict” STARS
ARC via Netgalley
Thank you, Entangled!!
Well, let’s start by giving praise where praise is due, which in this case means high stakes. Talk about major inner conflict.
Ethan Chase’s major inner conflict.
Let’s be honest here… This was the typical third-person dual-POV... ...more
I love a good pretending story! And I do mean good. Some are too contrived and just wrong but this one gets pretending right! And once I started it, I didn't stop till it was done.
Ethan...I love that name btw...is three years past the death of this wife. He's fine. Really, he is. He'll tell you s... ...more

It is hard to review this one without spoilers...and even if I were to give all of the details away, it wouldn't matter, as it is the reading of the well-written story that draws you in. It's Ethan and how much you like him, and believe in him. Aft... ...more
ARC recieved via Netgalley and Loveswept in exchange for an honest review.
I haven't read the first two book about the Chase brothers but I never had the feeling that I missed out anything. I never had problems finding into the story.
This book has some very strong and likeable characters who made... ...more
Wow! I loved Ethan and Rue's story. This book was filled with so much heart, bittersweet, heavy emotions. Or maybe that is how I felt for Ethan. He is a beautiful man, still loving his wife who passed away, struggling to go on. And then he meets Rue, making his whole life come alive. I loved the... ...more
Such an awesome story! After the death of his young wife Ethan Chase put his heart on a shelf, never intending to use it again. That is until the wild and reckless Rue Campbell unexpectedly blows into his life. After meeting her he knew his life wouldn't be the same but since she had plans that w... ...more
Funny, and touching. Ethan wedged his way into my heart and to watch him falling for Rue was endearing. Sometimes you read a book that brings many emotions to the surface and at times that's exactly how I felt. Yet, the funny moments and the crazy pets had me smiling like a fool.
I have to say I w... ...more
So much emotion was flowing through me when I read this story. The Three Week Arrangement will make you laugh, cry and scratch your head in puzzlement at times. Sarah Ballance's offbeat stories have a way of getting a person to see things differently with her great sense of humor and her heart st... ...more
This is a WfYL Favorite, so there was a lot to love about this book. To make things easier, I'll just break it all down with bullet points:
*First off, the fake BF/GF arrangement was mutually beneficial. That doesn't happen often with this trope. Usually, one person has everything to gain or sli... ...more
I have been looking forward to Ethan's story from the first time I read about him and Ms. Ballance does not disappoint. THE THREE WEEK ARRANGEMENT is sweet and sexy with a sassy, fun heroine and a hero that makes the heart flutter.
A chance encounter with Rue provides Ethan with the perfect excus... ...more
Like the previous books in this series, this opposites attract tale is often a lot of fun as it pitches two very different people against each other with romantic results. Yet, at the same times, it’s also quite emotional as Ethan struggles to move on from grieving his wife, hoping to stop his fa... ...more
It's love at first sight, and then the Hero meets the Heroine. Seriously, who cannot fall in love with a cherry red 1966 Mustang. There is a Meet Cute in "The Three Week Arrangement" but it's between the Hero and the Heroine's batty old neighbor lady and her spray hose. Sarah Ballance always ...... ...more
This is a cute story about Ethan Chase and Rue. How they meet is priceless and sets the tone for the book I think! Very well written with great developed characters. This was a quick read for me which made it nice!!
