From Wall Street Journal Best Selling Author, Willow Winters comes a steamy, small-town romance.
A drunken bet that led to a fake relationship? My naive little heart still hoped it would last...
We were never meant to be together.
He’s a bartender with noncommittal tendencies.
I’m looking for … the opposite. Commitment. Period.
But drinks and a bet led to something it shouldn’t have: a fake relationship. Worse, a first date, a first kiss… and then more.
He’s addictive and I can’t bring myself to accept the reality.
That it’s all a lie and I’m fooling myself by thinking he could want more. That I could change him.
He’s mine for as long as I keep on pretending like this is just for fun.
As if I don’t want more…
Like when he whispers my name, I pretend it doesn’t make my heart flip.
Like when he holds me at night, I pretend I don’t want to lay in his bed every night.
It's just a bet; just a lie . . . until it isn't.
A gentle love story with a happy ending. Honest.
I’m in love with Willow Winters’ books, and Knocking Boots is no exception. I loved this friends to lovers romance. This is an unputdownable, fun, flirty, and delightful slow-burn story that summed up so succinctly the very essence of romance. It was such a great read. I am not kidding, this book was everything. All the things—witty banter, humor, angst, emotions, and all of the steam. And the characters? OMG—talk about Charlie! Charlie owns a bar, is very swoon-worthy, sexy as hell, handsome, and an eligible bachelor who does not want to get married or any kids because he was burned from a previous relationship. Grace is the complete opposite—she is independent, goal oriented, has a great job, wants a husband, home, and kids—kid(s) is her priority before her biological clock runs out. Grace stops in Charlie’s bar most nights from work so that he can fix her different drinks, talk about her problems, so they became friends. Since Charlie’s sister is getting married and in order to keep family off his back, he makes a deal with Grace to pretend to be his fake girlfriend. The chemistry between them is off-the-chart hot. They will fascinate you and frustrate you at the same time, but the banter was everything. This book left me wonderfully content at its conclusion, and I can reread this book over and over again. Willow Winters manages to weave humorous plot lines centered on romantic ideas with artfully developed main characters. The storyline is fluid, and it will pique your interest.
Loved the book. Can’t wait to check out your other books.
