About this ebook

Two broken hearts. One fake dating agreement. What could go wrong?

Lucie thought she had it all—a loving fiancé, a nice apartment, and a job she was great at. But that all changed the day she walked in on her perfect fiancé screwing his personal trainer on her newly purchased dream sofa. Three months later, she’s bunking with her best friend and scrambling to make sense of her life sans cheating ex.

Theo is about to jet off for a long weekend in picturesque Scotland to be the best man at his brother’s wedding. With stunning views and nothing but free food and drinking ahead, he should be more excited than he is. If only he didn’t have feelings for the damn bride.

When fate throws Lucie and Theo together under unlikely circumstances, they bond over doughnuts and their mutually disastrous love lives … and it seems like they might be able to help each other out. As long as they both stick to the rules, there’s nothing that can go wrong.

Contract in place? Check.

Hot, fake dates? Check.

Sexual chemistry steamy enough to scorch sheets? Double che—

Wait, what?

That wasn’t in the agreement …

A standalone romcom. Book 2 in the Love For Days series. Please note: Although this book can be read as a standalone, it is set after Man Crush Monday (Book 1 in the series) so will contain spoilers.

Well. Kirsty’s gone and done it again! Another 5 star read for me, with all the feels and lots of laugh out loud moments (literally). This was such a fun read, with wonderful characters, some of who, if you’ve read book 1 in the Love for Days series, Man Crush Monday, you will already know. Fake dating is one of my favourite tropes, and Theo and Lucie fake it in the best possible way. No lies or deceit, they’re both upfront with themselves and they don’t particularly lie about what they are to each other either, which makes the story so much more believable. The chemistry between them is palpable, their interactions are fun, flirty and oh so sexy. Even though they both think they’re in love with other people, I knew from the bottom of my heart that they were meant to be. Theo is just adorable, completely swoon worthy, caring, and forever the perfect gentleman. Lucie is just the right amount of sweet and funky with a little bit of girl next door. I was hooked from the get-go, the writing (perfect), the characters (adorable), and the main setting (who doesn’t love Scotland?) I will stress that this is a stand-alone story, and you do not need to have read book 1, but why the heck would you not want to read it, it’s a wonderful introduction into what I know is going to be one of my favourite series, and Stand-in Saturday confirms that fact. I received an advanced copy of this book. This is my honest review.

If there was a book written about Theo and Lucie deciding what to have for dinner, I'd rush to buy it. That is how entertaining the characters are in Kirsty Mosely's, Stand-In Saturday. They are so much fun and so well-developed! If they were real people, I'd probably be stalking them. In addition, Stand-In Saturday shows, yet again, that Kirsty Mosely is a phenomenal story-teller who just keeps getting better and better. I loved this engaging plot that flows seamlessly with never a dull moment. She brought back some beloved characters from the previous book, Man Crush Monday, as part of the story and not just as bonus cameo appearances. I loved how quickly thing happened, and it never felt rushed. I laughed like a barking seal one moment and had to close my eyes to cringe the next. From giddy squeals, to happy tears, to butterflies in my stomach - I swear I felt like I was the one falling in-love. I am in-love with this book!

5 Stars Review by Elizabeth Late Night Reviewer Up All Night with Books Blog Holy. Crow. On. A. Stick. Where do I signup for my own personal Theo?? Swoon. Epic swoon. My advice to start with about Stand-In Saturday, run, do not walk, RUN to one-click this book NOW!! Best book I have read of 2020. Is it possible to give a book ten stars? No, more? Let me give it as many as I can. I am a first-time reader of Kirsty Mosley and I am hooked like no other. I will be running like the wind to read ALL of her other books. Just an FYI. Anywho, Lucie and Theo appear to be total opposites but they are anything but opposites. They are so stinkin’ cute together and have this amazing chemistry. There is literally not a bad thing I can say about Lucie or Theo. They are just the best characters I have read so far. I was not looking forward to the book ending. Anyone, Lucie’s ex is a real piece of work and I would like to punch the lights outta him but naturally, I cannot. Overall, this “fake” relationship romance is very well written and will grab your attention from the get-go. Both Lucie and Theo are very easy to love and I could not find a better “fake” couple in a book if I tried. Stand-In Saturday is most definitely worth the one-click!! So RUN to grab that gem NOW!!!
