It’s all fun and parties until someone falls in love in this modern fairy tale from author Kate Evangelista.

Caleb desperately needs a fake girlfriend. Either he attends a series of parties for his father’s law firm with a pretty girl on his arm, or he gets shipped off to Yale to start a future he’s not ready for and isn’t sure he wants. And sadly, the last unattached girl in his social circle has just made the grievous mistake of falling in love with him. Fortunately, Didi, recently fired waitress and aspiring painter, is open to new experiences. As the summer ticks by in a whirl of lavish parties, there’s only one rule: They must not fall in love!


I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.

Caleb needs a fake girlfriend to last through the summer. Considering the fact that he has dated just about every girl in his town, one particular girl comes to his mind. The girl that he met at the country club, Didi. When Didi is approached by Caleb with the fake girlfriend proposal, she says yes. She no longer has a job and what better way to spend a summer than attending nice parties and eating fancy foods? The no strings attached arrangement is exactly what Caleb and Didi wanted, until the two start to develop feelings they aren’t so familiar with.

Didi was such a fan character. She lives with her supportive and hard hard-working mother who works multiple jobs to pay the bills. She is confident, quirky, and very blunt. I do love a straightforward character and some of the things that Didi would say had me seriously laughing. Caleb is quite the opposite. He is serious and shy. Since the death of his mother, he has been very closed off and will not let anyone close. Needless to say, the pair is quite the opposite.

 No Love Allowed is a quick and sweet read that any contemporary fan will love. It will have you grinning from ear to ear from start to finish.
