One fake relationship . . .

Ginny Michaels has always been a good girl and—ever since surviving a school shooting a little over a year ago—hailed a hero. Except she doesn’t feel like a hero. She can’t even have a one-night stand with sexy Wes Dalton properly. When her big city fling resurfaces in her hometown with an intriguing proposition, she’s powerless to resist. A fake relationship is exactly what’s needed to keep her small town’s matchmakers at bay during the upcoming wedding season. If only her attraction to Wes were as easy to ignore.

Too many real kisses . . .

Wes Dalton doesn’t have many regrets, and that includes his night with Ginny. But he’s always hoped to strengthen his relationship with his estranged family. When his father’s health takes a bad turn, Wes puts his life on hold and moves to the meddling seaside town of Cape Hope. With his barriers in place—and a beautiful woman to help him hold them up—he’s prepared for anything. Or so he thinks. Despite his determination to leave as soon as the summer is over, those fake kisses are starting to feel an awful lot like the real thing.


Ah, pretend relationships..Why do they even try? Especially when the characters are as deserving and desperate for love as Wes and Ginny is. Having their first encounter at a bar, up against a wall-yep-, their relationship goes through many stages, starting with that one wild night, and then going over the pretend love affair and finally ending up with the real deal.
I liked this book. I’m a lover of contemporary romances that have a small town for a setting. It gets me every time. So when I got a chance to read this book and be introduced to yet another new town, I leapt at the chance. It helped that the main couple was to fake it till they made it. Makes a fun plot line, and mix that up with a small town, I got a recipe for a good time.
