“Everything about this story is beautiful. I couldn't put it down!” 5 stars


Their pretend relationship feels breathlessly real…

Liz Wilkinson has finally landed her dream job overseeing Married in Malibu, a new wedding venue for the Hollywood elite that promises perfect, paparazzi-free happily ever afters. She vows to do whatever it takes to put the new company on the map. Even if it means working with her ex-fiancé...and pretending to be in love with him again, too!


No matter how they try, they can’t resist each other’s oh-so-sweet kisses on the beach… 

As a bestselling thriller writer, Jason Lomax writes plot twists for a living. But he never could have imagined needing his ex-fiancée's help to arrange a secret beach wedding for his famous niece. Nor did he ever expect to fall even more in love with Liz the second time around.


The wedding―and true love―they’ve both dreamed of for so long…


When their fake dates―and kisses―become breathlessly, wonderfully real, will Jason be able to convince Liz that neither of them is pretending anymore? And that the love they once felt for each other never actually went away...


“A deliciously sweet romance!”


"If you want to curl up on the sofa and escape for a few hours, this is the book for you!" 


“Empowering, romantic, sassy and a fun read!”


“Oh so romantic!”

The sweetest happily-ever-after…

Millions of readers have fallen in love with the San Francisco and Seattle Sullivans. Now get ready to fall head over heels for the New York Sullivans!
 
World-renowned artist Drake Sullivan doesn’t paint women. Ever. Not when he knows all too well just how destructive painter/muse relationships can be. But on the day Rosa Bouchard walks onto the cliffs outside his Montauk cottage, Drake is so captivated that he can’t stop himself from bringing herto  life on canvas.
 
Shocked and horrified by the nude photos of her that have just hit the Internet, reality TV star Rosa’s every instinct is to run from her Miami home and hide. After driving all night, she ends up in Montauk, New York, where she doesn’t know a soul and plans to lie low until she can figure out how to deal with the media firestorm—and her own mother, who seems all too happy to sell out Rosa’s happiness for more fame, more fans, and more money. The very last thing Rosa expects is to find, and to fall for, a sinfully sexy man like Drake Sullivan.
 
Drake has never felt this way about anything he’s painted...and he’s definitely never felt this way about a woman. When they kiss, everything but sweet, breathless desire melts away. But can he convince Rosa to trust—and to love—again after such a devastating betrayal?
