Summary
"Jamie Westenberg and Bea Wilmot have nothing in common except a meet-disaster and the mutual understanding that they couldn{u2019}t be more wrong for each other. But when the people closest to them play Cupid and trick them into going on a date, Jamie and Bea realize they have something else in common after all{u2014}an undeniable need for revenge. Soon their plan is in place: Fake date obnoxiously and convince the meddlers they{u2019}re madly in love. Then, break up spectacularly and dash everyone{u2019}s hopes, putting an end to the matchmaking madness once and for all. To convince everyone that they{u2019}ve fallen for each other, Jamie and Bea will have to nail the performance of their lives. But as their final act nears and playing lovers becomes easier than not, they begin to wonder: What if Cupid{u2019}s arrow wasn{u2019}t so off the mark? And what if two wrongs do make a right?" --publisher's website.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "In this exceptionally smart and charming romance, Liese tells the story of two neurodivergent people who resist falling in love just because other people think they should. Bea is an artist creating erotic works for a card store, and James is a pediatrician with two cats. In spite of their having nothing discernible in common, Bea's twin sister and her fiancé decide that Bea and James would be perfect for each other, so they manipulate a meeting via anonymous texting. In retaliation, Bea and James design a scheme in which they will pretend to be in love and then break up dramatically and publicly to prove a point, namely to be free from others' matchmaking meddling. But of course, via the light, Much Ado about Nothing template Liese so cleverly uses, they do fall hard for each other and following the convoluted way they get to love is great fun. Liese's writing is crisp and funny, the characters are fully engaging, and the story is delightful."

Publisher's Weekly Review: "In this lighthearted rom-com riff on Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing from Liese (the Bergman Brothers series), a disastrous first meeting between straightlaced Jamie Westenberg and "tattooed tornado of flying cocktails and unsolicited astrological commentary" Bea Wilmot leaves both entirely sure that they would never work as a couple--despite an instantaneous attraction that neither can shake. When their matchmaking mutual friends fool them into beginning an anonymous correspondence that ends in a blind date, they hatch a revenge plot: they'll fake date to get their friends' hopes up and then stage a breakup so dramatic that no one will ever dream of meddling in their dating lives again. The only thing harder than pulling off the ruse, however, is managing to keep from falling for each other for real. The banter is easy and the heat level is high, though the adversarial dynamic between Bea and Jamie will be more low-key than readers might expect given the source material; Liese serves dessert first as the pair iron out their purely aesthetic differences early on to reveal a remarkable compatibility. Fans of Rachel Van Dyken and Sarah Adams will find a lot to love. Agent: Samantha Fabien, Root Literary. (Nov.)"
