Noah Stafford loves his life—his happy, single life. So what if he made up a fake girlfriend to stop his boss’s matchmaking? He kept things close to the truth—Carly really does have long, sexy legs and a killer sense of humor. She just happens to be his best friend. His wicked awesome and completely platonic best friend.
But now his boss is having a destination wedding, and Noah is expected to attend…with Carly, his girlfriend.
Carly Randall has no interest in living out a rom-com plot. But Noah is her best friend, so she agrees to help. Still, once they arrive on Cape Cod, she can’t explain the sudden butterflies she feels when he looks at her that way. Or why she doesn’t mind when Noah’s hands stray a little south of her back.
What happens on the Cape stays on the Cape.
Except not really, not at all, and once their sexy faux-cation is over, Noah and Carly return to a reality where everything’s changed. Going for it would mean risking their friendship…but forgetting how good they were together just isn’t an option.
|A fun story that has Noah Stafford pretending that his best friend Carly Randall is his girlfriend. The rouse started innocently enough because of a picture of her on his desk. Then without even thinking he added one with them together. Working in a small company and then one day the boss wanting to double date, but really set him up with his future sister in law the sister of his fiancé, Noah said he had a girlfriend and pointed to the pictures of Carly. The boss thinking that that was a relative or friend was now happy to find out that he was dating someone. Carly shows up at Noah’s house for their weekly quad ride but as they are loading up the quads, she knows something is going on with him.
She finally confronts him when they get to the top of the ridge and he explains how he told his boss that they were dating. She was okay not bad; he then says we have been invited to there wedding this weekend in the Hamptons. She thinks about it on the ride back to the truck and by the time to the house, she has her own set of terms. After agreeing to her terms, they go to the wedding and from there the story really takes off at least for me. The two characters connect for me and I really enjoyed the story when they were at the wedding. I think this all works because they are friends and have been friends for such a long time, but they also like so many of the same things and doing them together which really helps this story. Overall a very good book. I received this book from Netgalley.com I gave it 4 stars. Follow us at www.1rad-readerreviews.com
