To be fair, I don't usually read Omegaverse stuff, so that was on me.  But I like the fake relationship trope and all my apps were pushing this one at me as a suggestion, so I gave it a try. It was ok, but honestly, I just didn't love it.

This one is a weirdly funny book. I did not expect the werewolf... things (
alpha/omega superstitions, heat cycles, and knotting
)... to go that far. After I got over that surprise, the book offered me a solid and fun reading experience. Although, the
the third act breakup
felt somewhat hasty with the lack of communication during it, especially as even just a little more open communication could have helped skip the whole thing and bring the plot to the same conclusion in a happier way.

I don't know if I can say with full confidence that Mackenzie and Noah had any chemistry. It felt as if it was just physical so the lovey dovey romance wasn't really there. 

There were a lot of cringey moments which I admit I love sometimes but I didn't particularly care for them this time. I think it was harder to look past it when the characters weren't as lovable.

Mackenzie, aka Mack, is not your average omega. She’s a physician with a heart of gold and a fake mate named Noah, who’s not just any alpha, but a grumpy interventional cardiologist with a soft spot for workplace romance. Their story isn’t just about the fake snuggles and benefits; it’s a comedic dance of two professionals trying to keep it cool while their inner wolves are pretty much doing the tango. And when they’re in their wolf forms? Pure, unadulterated goofiness that’ll have you howling with laughter.

As the story progresses, the romance heats up, showcasing Noah’s unexpected skills, which makes the relationship feel real and exciting. The slow burn turns into a full-on inferno, and Noah, apparently, is a man of many talents. His ‘long-suppressed’ skills come to light in a way that’ll make you fan yourself with the nearest object.

In the grand finale, Mack stands tall, not as a damsel in distress, but as a fierce omega who can throw a punch as well as she can heal a wound. Her and Noah’s happily ever after isn’t just sweet; it’s a high-five to all the strong, independent folks out there finding love on their terms. And let’s not overlook Parker, the gay bestie every girl deserves, bringing his own brand of fabulous to the mix. ‘The Fake Mate’ is a howl-arious blend of romance, comedy, and a generous dash of spice that really heats up in the second half. It’s the kind of book that leaves you with a smirk, a sigh, and maybe a slight obsession with finding your own grumpy cardiologist. 🐾💘

I don't really have any strong feelings about this book either way. It wasn't bad, but I didn't love it either. It was a quick and easy read, which I'd recommend if you're in the mood for something light and decently spicy to pass the time.

The characters aren't too deep, but there are arcs for Mackenzie and Noah that has them both grow. Diversity is meh. I don't remember any characters specifically described diversely, but there is a Gay Best Friend who ends up being vital to the plot.
