Description from Publisher:
Sometimes you’ve got to fake it ‘til you make it…

Stephanie Fitzpatrick wanted out of the spotlight after her pro-golfer husband was caught on camera cheating. But when she returns to Michigan for a job interview and some much-needed R&R, a fib told by her well-meaning sister has her looking for a temporary fiancé, or she can kiss her new start good-bye.

Desperate to hide the truth, she goes to the one man who can help—her former best friend.

Miles Masterson is relieved to see the Checkerberry Inn beginning to thrive once more. Not only does it ease his mind about his grandmother’s financial future, but also about his decision to finally escape town. But then one all grown up and sexy as hell friend from the past shows up needing rescue. Now the temptation to change the “temporary” arrangement into something more is making it harder to think about leaving.

My Musings:
This was a cute story, with some enjoyable characters. Stephanie is a great heroine and I loved her feistiness and humor. She was a fantastic match to Miles, who is a little rough around the edges while he figures out what exactly he wants.

The setting of a smaller town in Michigan was a lot of fun and I really loved how it was described and how it worked with the story. This was my first Checkerberry Inn book, and first Kyra Jacobs book, and I adored every page.

There wasn't all that much "fake dating" in this, despite the title and the fact that Miles and Stephanie are fake-"engaged." There was, however, history between these two that helped to flesh out their story and really make you root for them to finally get it together.

All in all, a sweet and sexy story that was a very quick read!

My Source: I received a digital ARC from the publisher to voluntarily review. This in no way influenced my review. My opinion is unbiased and my 100% own.
