secrets revealed, history told, obstacles hurdled
Tyler McKay, one of the founding members of Flatiron Five Fitness, is desperate to blunt his Mother’s incessant attempts at matchmaking, and having a date to his sister’s wedding in a few weeks is part of his plan. When Shannyn Hawke, a young woman he briefly knew at college many years ago, appears at the fitness club for a photo shoot, Tyler throws caution to the wind and agrees to an outrageous deal where she would be his fake date for the event. The fact that Shannyn seems to enjoy provoking Tyler intrigues him, as he struggles to change her long ago opinion of him. As secrets are revealed, past histories told and obstacles hurdled, Tyler and Shannyn move closer to their eventual HEA. As usual with Ms. Cooke, her stories are well written, pulling you into the characters' lives from the first page, and unwilling to let you go after the last page. I highly recommend this book. A copy of this book was provided to me with no requirements for a review. I voluntarily read this book and my comments here are my honest opinion.
