Pretending to date the town's bad boy seemed like a good idea.
But who knew that being bad could feel so good…
A small town, fake dating, opposites attract standalone romance from NY Times Best Selling Author Samantha Chase
Ryleigh Donovan has been unsuccessfully dodging her mother's matchmaking attempts for far too long. In an act of desperation, she finds the one guy in her small town who is guaranteed to shock everyone to be her fake boyfriend. It doesn't need to be for long, she just needs to buy herself enough time to recover from her mother's last disastrous fix-up. It's really a fool-proof plan. But when a few staged kisses lead to some very real feelings, she realizes she might be in over her head.
Ryker Masella has been patiently waiting for the perfect opportunity to get Ryleigh to take him—and his numerous attempts at asking her out—seriously. When she grabs him and kisses him in front of her family to prove a point, he's more than on board. But when she proposes a fake—and temporary—relationship, he's 100% on board. After all, she might be all about pretending, but he sees it as a way for Ryleigh to truly see the real him.
Fake flirting and orchestrated dates quickly bring on real feelings. For Ryker, they've always been there and he'll be as patient as he needs to be. She might have asked him to save her from her family, but what he wants is to save her from herself.
