From Elyssa Patrick comes a light, sexy, emotional contemporary romance perfect for fans of Jill Shalvis, Susan Elizabeth Phillips, and Bella Andre, about what happens when a fake relationship becomes all too real.
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.
My Opinion 5 STARS
**Copy Provided by Netgalley and Elyssa Patrick for an honest review**
I'm really glad I tried this book out. Having not read anything from the author before, it could only have ben a hit or miss.
Ginny and Wes (a.k.a Mr Dangerous) connect instantly when they meet, on a physical level in the big city, but they don't expect to see each other again.
When they both see each other the next day back in Cape Hope, their fling becomes a fake relationship to help both of them get out of set-ups by interfering friends and family. What they don't see happening is the feelings that they start to feel for the other they get to know them better.
Both families and past hurts come out and get them closer together, where a fake relationship very quickly becomes a real relationship over the summer.
Lots happens in this book, there is wit, humour, suspense, thrills and loads of romance, along with pain and heartbreak (not all in that order).
I lovely read that I would have no problem in recommending.
