That surly ex-rugby player making a ruckus in the dark corner of the bar I work at? Yeah, I try to avoid him. Too bad he's my boss.
I thought I was grumpy AF but I've met my match. Tane Parata has two moods when I see him in the bar he co-owns with his sister: grouchy in a dark corner or reliving his rugby days with a rowdy group that likes to cause trouble. I try to avoid him at all costs—the last thing I need is more male drama in my life after my stalker ex. He's why I came to New Zealand—to escape.
When my closest friend in the country—who happens to be Tane's sister—asks me for a huge favor, I can't say no. Now I'm Tane's fake date to a family wedding, and it turns out he is trying to turn his life around.
Adventuring around New Zealand opens my eyes to more than just Lord of the Rings fandom and sheep. I didn't expect to fall in love with the country…or Tane.
The fourth in the Love and Wanderlust series, The Player in New Zealand is two grumps having a meet-hate before a fake date pushes them together. This standalone contemporary romance is perfect for everyone who wants their wanderlust to continue into the happily-ever-after.
