A SPECIAL PONDEROSA RESORT NOVELLA!
I'm totally over having my heart stomped six years ago. So what's with the mule kick to the chest when I spot the girl who ghosted me?
Turns out she's not my teenage fling, but her twin sister—and she needs a fake date to her cousin's wedding.
I'm game, especially since Val fires me up like no one I've ever met. She's smart and funny and sweet and is it wrong that I'm diggin' this bogus boyfriend role?
As our make-believe romance melts into real-deal territory, things get hotter than a habanero on a bonfire. But what happens when her sister shows up?
Or worse, when I fall in love with my fake summer fling.
Really liked this story. Read non-stop. Well written with very likable and fallible characters that like each other.
Another good book by this writer
Many battling emotions
This was a cute novella with varying emotions. Betrayal, fear, feelings of inadequacy, putting on a brave face, trying new things and letting go. Both Josh and Val are afraid. Each for their own reasons, but the fear is always there. I don't know anyone who won't be able to relate. Everyone has at least one fear; something that either humiliates them or causes them anxiety, or just unease. Whether it's something from their past, something their hiding in their present or something they're afraid will happen in the future. Fear is a powerful thing and this book brings that to life.
This series has been key in talking about things that most people avoid talking about. Bullying, always having to be perfect, feeling ashamed, fear and trust, and questioning who you are. Tough topics, but each has been addressed and resolved. I love this series for taking on these topics.
