She needs a date for her friend’s Christmas wedding. He has to go home—and won’t do it alone. But their fake relationship was never supposed to feel real.
Courtney and Sean share a common goal: survive the holiday season and get back to life as they know it. Courtney Maddux is a talented boudoir photographer and cherishes the life she’s built in Holly Creek. Her smothering mother, however . . . has other plans. The pressure to abandon her “unconventional” job and settle down to start a family weigh heavy on Courtney, as the last thing she wants is to disappoint her mom. But the wounds her mother carries serve as a cautionary tale, and opening herself to others is something Courtney simply can’t see risking.
Sean Wallace is only months into an unprecedented leap of faith. He walked away from a lucrative job, once secured with the help of his adoptive father, to become a partner in a struggling brewery. Living in a town reminiscent of his childhood, however, leaves him unable to ignore the memories always lurking in the back of his mind. And with those whispers now ever-present, the thought of returning solo for his parents’ vow renewal is out of the question.
Will Sean and Courtney’s pact to be each other’s plus-ones—no side benefits allowed—survive the holiday chaos? Or will the friendship forged from their shared scars convince them that opening their hearts might lead to a future never envisioned?
