My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Temporarily in Love is a chick-lit romance novella with loads of humor and indeed falls in the genre of romantic comedy. I loved the way it started. Jovie, a young woman, no job, no home, no money, and a recent breakup with her boyfriend ends up vacationing in Vegas with her best friend and brother. Tempted by a prize winning contest for couples, she ends up marrying Alex, a handsome fellow traveler.
Things begin from here and sparks fly as their fake relationship transforms into a caring and loving bond over the course of their 4 week stay at a plush hotel in Vegas.
It was a cozy, lighthearted, fun read though I was expecting a bit more romance between the lead pair. A little more steamy sequences and passionate kisses could have acted as a cherry on top for this delightful read.
I really enjoyed the character of Jovie and her interactions with her pseudo husband Alex. I did love the sequences when Jo was making fun of other lovebirds and her own brother Wills and his wife Jen looking from afar dancing and giggling in each other’s arms at various locations while their stay at the hotel where the prize winning contest was going on.
The story is well written, and Kennedy succeeded in keeping the readers’ attention intact till the end. The humor, the comedy, and the romance everything was just awesome. I really loved reading it.
