When you're labeled as a Hollywood Playboy, you can't do anything right.
I can't go out for a simple drink without the press having a field day.
And I definitely can't help my coworker's wife home when she gets too drunk without the studio threatening my contract.
My manager decides to send me across the country to a small beach town. He rents out the whole Sunrise inn since it's the off-season, and I'm told to stay out of trouble.
When a steady relationship seems to be the only way to save my career, can I convince Lin, the curvy bombshell inn owner, that pretending to be my girlfriend will be a great PR move for the inn too?
And to make matters worse, a storm washes out the only bridge, leaving us stuck together on the island.
Too bad my heart didn't listen that this was just a fake relationship.
With my job in Hollywood and my heart at the Sunrise inn, what the hell am I going to do?
This is a Steamy, Fake Relationship, Small Town, Beach Romance. No Cliffhangers.
This is Book 1 in the Chasing The Sun Duet.
As always there is a satisfying Happy Ever After.
If you love steamy romances with insta love, hot love scenes, a bad boy, small towns, and beaches, then this one is for you.
This is such a sweet fake relationship romance. The story is beautiful and beautifully written. The story has laugh out loud moments and adorable, lovable characters. This is a feel good, cozy, heartwarming read. This might be a first book in a duet but it does not end in a cliffhanger.
I love this author and she hit this one out of the park. Linley and Kade are great together, no matter what different worlds they are from. The characters are well-written and you feel like you’ve known them forever, it was fun to watch them with each other and I look forward to the second part of the duet having met Brynn and Jasper, that’ll be good! I recommend this book for anyone who loves a sweet and steamy romance.

The Inn Owner and the Hollywood Playboy
A fake relationship, some laugh out loud moments and an inspiring love story!
Linly (aka Lin) is a very strong, independent, smart, beautiful woman who took over the family inn after her parents died. Her best friend Brynn is the same and she runs the inn next door (Brynn’s story is book two of the “Chasing the Sun Duet”). Lin has agreed to rent her entire inn to a “Hollywood Playboy” (Kade) so he can chill and be hidden from the press. When he arrives to check in, he sees Lin and has one of those moments that make you think love at first sight.
Since Kade is not supposed to go anywhere he maybe recognized, he spends a lot of time at the inn and on the beach. He gets to know Lin and they become friends. Trying to clean up his image, Kade gets the idea to fake a relationship to help his reputation and also bring more guests to the inns and the small town.
When Lin and Kade take a stroll down Main Street, you can picture the scene in your mind just by the way it is described. Ms. Rose has done an excellent job of defining the inns and the small town around them. She has also created some wonderful side characters, especially the townsfolk who support Lin 100%. The relationship between Kade and his parents is wonderful, I loved how his mom brought up a fake relationship idea to Kade and how Kade turns to them when he needs advice. It’s great to have positive parent/adult child relationships represented.
We also get to know a little about how Lin grew up and she had supportive parents as well but losing them when she was 20 leaves her feeling alone. But she has Brynn the super best friend, confidant, and person who will stay up with Lin all night if there is a thunderstorm. They work so well together, grew up together, and consider each other family. Once again, Ms. Rose is giving us a positive spin on a relationship.
I enjoyed reading Lin and Kade’s story and I hope to see a little of them in the next book “Sunset” when Brynn and Jasper get to tell their story.
