Local pub owner Jemima Jane Ericson is living a lie. She’s been in love with her best friend Ethan since forever. But he fell in love with another woman, married her, and despite their tempestuous relationship and decade old divorce, JJ knows Ethan’s heart is still down for the count. And friendship is better than nothing, right?
Single dad and Jumbuck Springs chief of police, Ethan Weston, hits the pub the night his ex-wife remarries and announces she wants custody of their daughter. When he wakes the next morning to find himself in JJ’s bed he’s mortified that they’d crossed a line they should never have crossed. Until JJ’s abusive ex, Shane, shows up at her door and Ethan claims he and JJ are engaged to protect her.
Both are stunned by the unravelling of their normally sane lives but suddenly it makes sense – JJ gets a deterrent and Ethan gets the respectability of a wife for any custody claims. But when JJ’s life is threatened, Ethan is forced to confront feelings that may just run much deeper than convenience…

Good story, but...
I enjoyed the story and the setting, even most of the characters.
My only complaint is that Connie, who is said to be 14, behaves and is described much more like a 6-10 year old child.
She hugs her dad and her head comes up to his stomach-- a teenage girl would at least come up to his chest. She talks like a baby, jumps on her dad's bed to cuddle early in the morning, and is constantly described like a prepubescent child that doesn't know about sex or relationships. I don't exactly want to read about a moody teenager, but I did wish that Connie either acted her age or had her age changed to much, much younger.
Some Girls Lie
I know I read this book and I did like it promoted family but truly just too much sex.
Some Girls Lie
Really good romance read! Sometimes you just want to shake Ethan to make him wake up and smell the roses😊.
