OVERVIEW

D’Vaughn and Kris have six weeks to plan their dream wedding.
Their whole relationship is fake.

Instant I Do could be Kris Zavala’s big break. She’s right on the cusp of really making it as an influencer, so a stint on reality TV is the perfect chance to elevate her brand. And $100,000 wouldn’t hurt, either.

D’Vaughn Miller is just trying to break out of her shell. She’s sort of neglected to come out to her mom for years, so a big splashy fake wedding is just the excuse she needs.

All they have to do is convince their friends and family they’re getting married in six weeks. If anyone guesses they’re not for real, they’re out. Selling their chemistry on camera is surprisingly easy, and it’s still there when no one else is watching, which is an unexpected bonus. Winning this competition is going to be a piece of wedding cake.

But each week of the competition brings new challenges, and soon the prize money’s not the only thing at stake. A reality show isn’t the best place to create a solid foundation, and their fake wedding might just derail their relationship before it even starts.

PRAISE

"Triumphantly Black, queer and contemporary. Magic...the dialogue snaps and shimmers." --New York Times Book Review

" A beautiful distillation of the ways love can come if you simply open your heart, your arms, and fall, trusting the other person to hold on while they fall alongside you." -Entertainment Weekly
What a pleasure this book was! D'Vaughn and Kris Plan a Wedding is some of the most fun I've had with a book this year. Effortlessly sexy, smart, achingly romantic and wonderfully vibrant. D'Vaughn and Kris's courtship is an absolute joy to read. Chencia C Higgins absolutely slayed with this fresh and swoony take on a reality tv rom com. - Adriana Herrera, USA Today Bestselling Author
"Higgins makes her print debut with an emotionally powerful, boldly sexy, and ultimately joyful tale of love and acceptance that makes the most of its reality television show premise as well as its vibrant cast of characters, not to mention the author's fresh, fun spin on the always popular fauxmance trope." -- Booklist
"Funny, angsty, and sexy-- the fake-dating-trope trifecta." - SELF

"The story strikes the perfect balance for its subgenre, reflecting queer people's authentic experiences while keeping the mood light and frothy. Higgins gives world-weary readers looking for an inclusive and thoroughly enjoyable escape exactly what they need." -- Publishers Weekly

"In a romance featuring Black joy, plus-sized beauty, and Mexican pride, the conflicts are entirely believable, and not overly dramatic, and make for a thoroughly enjoyable read. It is fake dating at its best." -- Library Journal, starred review

"This is the year of the fake relationship trope, and this book is starting us off with a bang!" --Mia Sosa, bestselling author of The Worst Best Man

"Romances that decenter both whiteness and the gender binary are still dismayingly rare in traditional publishing, so to see a Black lesbian stud as a central character is like water on a parched bit of ground."-- New York Times Book Review
