Bakery owner Willow Dalton’s friendship with Zane Walker has always been a bit complicated. Now a scrumptiously hot A-list actor, Zane’s always had a reputation as a player. He’s arrogant, and he’s definitely not boyfriend material. Sure, he did Willow a favor by agreeing to take her virginity before college, but is that reason enough for her to go along with a fake engagement a decade later—even if it comes with a real diamond ring?
Zane should have known better. Nothing involving Willow has ever been easy. Still, he knows her better than anyone, and becoming America’s hottest new leading man means cleaning up his reputation. An “engagement” to curvy, sass-mouthed Willow is the perfect PR move—provided no one gets hurt.
Now Zane and Willow’s little white lie has turned into an irresistible recipe for sweet temptation. And soon no one will be able to tell the difference between their fake engagement and the real thing—including them.
Fake relationship? Check. Brother’s best friend? Check. Second Chance romance? Another check. These are a few of my favorite things and the backstory between these two is everything. I really enjoyed Willow and Zane. They’re adorably perfect together even when things are less than smooth. There’s humor and heat but it’s also really sweet. There’s a lovely small-town setting and fun supporting characters you want to see more of, so just everything I want, including HEA. There’s humor and heat but it’s also really sweet.
