Book Synopsis



When a relationship therapist gets dumped right before her new dating handbook hits shelves, she fake dates to save face in this spicy romantic comedy.

There are a lot of things that can go wrong on an author's publication day, but breaking up with her long-term boyfriend might just be at the top of Jessica Gallagher's list. She also didn't expect to run into her old crush, Galvin Baker, the very next day. When Jessica goes into crisis mode about the PR nightmare, she proposes the first solution that comes to mind: fake dating. Luckily, Galvin seems game.

Galvin Baker is used to being a constant disappointment, which is why he can't--and won't--commit to a relationship. Unfortunately for him, his last girlfriend used her vast social media power to make sure everyone knows how much Galvin "underperforms." Fake dating for Jessica's book promotion seems like the perfect cover--and maybe she can teach him something along the way.

Hookups "for science" and some seriously sweet gestures later, Jessica and Galvin's fake dates are feeling more authentic than any of their previous relationships did. Have they replaced unrealistic expectations with unexpected realness?



Review Quotes




"What's a relationship therapist to do when her relationship implodes? Fake date, of course! Sharply witty, and deftly observational, Andie J. Christopher writes an enjoyable, modern romance that takes two people down a bumpy path to love. Jessica and Galvin both have a lot to learn, and the fact that they do so while pretending to be in a relationship while under intense scrutiny ramps up the drama--making their HEA even more satisfying."--Danielle Jackson, author of The Accidental Pinup

"Thoughtful, introspective and swoon worthy, Unrealistic Expectations is such a pleasure to read! Andie J. Christopher handles Jessica and Galvin with such care as they navigate the will they/won't they of fake dating, while growing individually as people and growing together in love."--Kristina Forest, author of The Neighbor Favor

"Andie J. Christopher is a master satirist of the absurdities of modern womanhood even as she renews our faith in the power of love."--Jenny Holiday, USA Today bestselling author of Duke, Actually

"Christopher pens delectable longing and angst that will leave readers screaming at the page, willing the characters to get out of their own ways to have the love that they deserve."--Taj McCoy, author of Savvy Sheldon Feels Good as Hell

"With a sultry focus on female sexual pleasure and genuine emotional depth between the beautifully imperfect protagonists, the central relationship proves easy to root for. This flirty and uplifting romance imparts a powerful message about healing, self-love, and communication."--Publishers Weekly
