Stacey Kennedy’s Harlequin debut brings the heat in this captivating, charming, entertaining and sizzling hot, friends-to-lovers/fake romance! This is the first book in her brand new Devil’s Bluff series. Great down to earth characters with a immediate attraction that captured my attention and soon I couldn’t put this story down.
Colter Ward’s life had been hard after getting divorced, but when an article from a gossip blog out of New York City named him “Texas’s Sexiest Bachelor of the Year”, he had women showing up and chasing after him and his family’s millions. All of this unwanted attention grated on his nerves, he couldn’t even get a beer at his friend’s bar without women hitting on him. And then she showed up with a simple request.
Adeline Harlow has been going through her own personal problems lately, after catching her fiancé cheating on her, she broke off the engagement and she has been feeling crushed, confused and lost lately. So it felt good to get out of NYC and come back to her hometown, when she was offered a chance at a promotion if she could get an exclusive follow-up interview on Colter. She hoped that the interview was in the bag, since she babysat his little brother. But Adeline has a tiny secret when it comes to Colter! Since she was twelve he was her secret crush.
So when Colter finally agrees to give her a exclusive interview it was with the stipulation, that she agrees to be his fake girlfriend to keep all the women at bay. How could she say no to that?
This is Colter Ward and Adeline Harlow story and I loved their connection. There are moments in this story so angsty as well as moments sweet and tender I melted. There’s no shortage of push and pull or side drama which had me glued to every page. There is also humor and hilarious banter between them. It’s passionate. It’s swoony, and hopeful. It’s captivating and addictive. I adored how all that forced proximity brought the heat and the heart together. Such a great story and I loved every minute of it.
