The Decoy Girlfriend is Lillie Vale’s best act yet.” PopSugar
“A definite must read…[this] cute fake turned real romcom checked all the right boxes.” –Harlequin Junkie

“This is a perfectly engaging, flirty rom-com staged around a couple that any reader will be able to fall for. An irresistible romance.” Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“A contemporary Hollywood spin on The Prince and the Pauper…Vale manages to add some fun new layers to the fake dating trope and delivers plenty of celebrity drama. Rom-com fans will find much to enjoy.” –Publishers Weekly

“[The Decoy Girlfriend] is of-the-moment and offers readers a glimpse into the life of modern novelists….Peels back the glamour of celebrity to reveal the romance and beauty of the everyday.” –Library Journal

“The fake dating and celebrity tropes are fun and believable in Vale’s entertaining romantic comedy, following The Shaadi Set-Up (2021)…[T]he romance is wholly satisfying. Fans of Hollywood romances will relish this, and readers of royalty romance may also enjoy this genre cousin.” Booklist

“Fans of fake dating and celebrity culture will love Lillie Vale’s The Decoy Girlfriend.” BookRiot

“Much like Lillie Vale’s debut, The Decoy Girlfriend is voicy, witty, and fulfilling authentic. Lillie Vale knows exactly how to write relatable characters with sizzling chemistry and mix humor and longing in her stories. The Decoy Girlfriend is the irresistible fake-dating romcom of my heart—an absolute must read!” –Ali Hazelwood, author of The Love Hypothesis
“I loved getting lost in the bubbly escapism of The Decoy Girlfriend. The Princess Switch meets The Lizzie McGuire Movie (with some very grown-up lust and longing) in this celebrity romance, but beneath the zaniness of the fake dating to hide a fake dating scheme is a book about grief and about the challenges of being a creative and sharing your art with the world. A glittery delight of a rom-com with a genuine emotional center.” –Alison Cochrun, author of The Charm Offensive
The Decoy Girlfriend mixes razor sharp wit with achingly tender romance to create a fake-dating rom-com you won’t soon forget. Vale is a master of snark and sweet, and I’ll read anything she writes.” –Mazey Eddings, author of A Brush with Love
“I INHALED Lillie Vale’s witty, sexy, and irresistible spin on fake dating in Hollywood. Taft and Freya’s electric chemistry hooked me from their first meeting, and I swooned watching it evolve into a genuine, tender, soul-deep connection. A must-read for all fans of celebrity romance, sparkling narrative voice, and complex, lovable characters.” –Ava Wilder, author of How to Fake It in Hollywood

“Smart, sweet, and sexy, The Decoy Girlfriend serves up a swoon-worthy romance, a charming cast of characters and an honest glimpse into the writing life. I devoured it.” –Lauren Kate, author of By Any Other Name
