The Dysfunctional Test by Kelly Moran

You are cordially challenged to a test of true love.
Growing up in her large, crazy Serbian family, Camryn Covic became an expert at shutting down her emotions in order to maintain her sanity. But when she loses her apartment, her job and her boyfriend all in one day, she hits her breaking point.
Worse, if her family finds out she’s single again, her sister’s upcoming wedding will be a disaster. The bride-to-be has a plan, though. A plan that involves an old friend, a pretend relationship…and the probability of ending up in a padded cell. This time for real.
Troy Lanske agreed to the crazy plan only because, when he was a lonely foster child, Camryn was his lifeline. But she isn’t the idealistic girl he remembers. She’s become so jaded that she doesn’t even believe in love anymore.
He sets out to restore her faith in happily-ever-afters, but his plan backfires when the fake relationship begins to feel all too real. Falling for the one woman he can’t have could mean losing more than just his honorary family. He could lose everything.
Warning: Contains a Playgirl-material hero and a woman who thinks she couldn’t be any more wrong for him. Enter one “Big Fat Overly Romantic Serbian Family”. Sit back and watch the magic happen. Enjoy!

I borrowed the summary from Amazon. To do her sister Heather a favor Camryn agrees to pretend her foster 'brother' Troy has been her boyfriend for quite a while already so they can go to the wedding together. Camryn seems reserved, but is she really? She and Troy have to spend a lot of time together and the pretending works a little better than they thought due to which they find themselves in a lot of uneasy situations.
The Dysfunctional Test is one of the funniest books I've ever read. The Life Lessons According to Camryn at the beginning of the chapters are hilarious. I ended up reading several of them aloud to other people. I also had to laugh very hard about Camryn's little niece Emily. It isn't easy to write a book that's both funny and romantic. I loved the chemistry between Camryn and Troy in combation with a strong story line and an enchanting plot. This is a book filled with sunshine, which is absolutely wonderful.
