Jake's got a diner to run, a fake marriage to plan, and Sadie to woo—he's in over his head.
When Jake Walker returns home and, for his mom’s sake, cooks up a fake relationship with sexy waitress, Sadie Evans, he’s shocked to discover that he wants the friends-to-lovers thing to stay on the menu forever. Although Sadie can’t pass up this chance to be in close proximity with her one true love, she harbors no delusions. Jake’s not built for settling down or small-town life. She’s betting he’ll rip off his apron and chuck the wedding band long before she has to admit to ordering up a fresh start for herself—one that can’t possibly include him.

This is a story about returning home after love and loss, taking chances and forging new beginnings, and, of course, grasping for a second chance with the one who got away!

If you are looking for some romance and an easy read this book is for you!!! JB Schroeder never disappoints! Her craft of creating characters that you feel like you know is terrific. The chemistry between Jake and Sadie is palpable and the family dynamics are realistic. Love that the book setting is in Pittsburgh- my home town!! There is a big moment when you question what is going to happen to these two characters who aren’t sure of their own futures either. While this book is a slight departure from JBs typical suspense, she maintains writing realistic romance! Can’t wait to read more from this innovative book series!! All aboard readers!!!
