Contemporary romance / to review

This family has issues. The dad was screwed  by a business partner. When the partner died the moms got together and made a plan for their kids to marry. No one asked the kids. The daughters made a bet to marry so they did not have to marry that guy. In the first book one sister married (it feels like a very US thing to marry fast). 

In this one Misty decides that she should take the bullet. Marry a guy for 5 years and save her family´s coffee place (maybe that place should just go under). But then she decides to be in a pretend relationship instead and we all know how those turn out. The guy, Luke has liked her for years. They pretend to go on dates and do all sorts of things.

And fall madly in love and live happily ever after. They had known each other for years, so taking that leap was plausible.

Cute romance with all happiness.

I liked the narrator, but one of the sister´s voice sounded so complaining. Not someone I would like to be friends with. I would rather have had them all sounds like then

Aspiring artist Misty Delaney is not about to let her parents' beloved cafe go under. Not when she can just merge the company by entering a quick marriage of convenience with the rich son of their family's rival. But her sisters aren't having it. To make sure Misty gives finding love a chance, they post a "Marry me: Misty!" billboard outside town.

Watching Misty field marriage proposals from strangers, that she clearly doesn't want, is a big cup of nope for cafe manager Lucas Reyes. He and Misty have been friends for years, but it's time he step up and make his romantic feelings for her known. And what better way to start than by sending her unwanted suitors packing with an announcement that she's already in a relationship. With him.

Lucas's little stunt buys an extremely grateful Misty one week to come up with a solution that saves the cafe and keeps her sisters happy. A week during which she and Lucas need to act like they're in love. Except, between late-night stargazing, crashed mopeds, and dancing in the rain, their pretend romance feels almost . . . perfect. But it's one thing to start falling. It's another entirely to turn one week into forever . . .
