About this ebook

From the NYT Bestselling Author of Breathless With Her comes a fake relationship romance that’s all too real.

Professing her love to her best friend while wearing only her favorite panty set and coat probably wasn’t the best decision Amelia Carr has ever made. In fact, it’s perhaps the worst. But when her family becomes their overprotective selves while encroaching on her life, she makes a rash decision: her brother’s best friend will just have to be her beard. Too bad, he has no idea what he’s in for.

Tucker Reinhard loves women, and they tend to love him even more. Despite the love, he never would have expected Amelia to come up with the plan she poses to him. He’ll go along with it, but only because he doesn’t want to see her hurt—even if that means fighting his best friend.

In the midst of her scheme, Amelia realizes she doesn’t know Tucker as well as she thought. And neither of them are prepared for what happens when they let the façade go and see what truly lies beneath.

Book 2 in Less Than series, Reckless with You by Carrie Ann Ryan. Amelia is the younger sibling in the Carr family and even though her childhood was tragic she still had her amazing brothers and sisters but also her best friend from high school Toby. One night Amelia gives herself a pep talk and turns up to Toby’s house in lingerie and long coat. After Toby tells her he doesn’t love her that way and that he’s in a serious relationship with another women. Afterwards a lot happens but the siblings get involved and think dating is the answer but Amelia just wants to process. She asks Tucker to be her beard. I absolutely loved this book and especially the development of both Amelia and Tucker’s growth in this story. Absolutely loving this genre by Carrie Ann Ryan I thought I’d miss shapeshifter or witches but I have not been disappointed

What happens when you fall in love with your best friend, and he doesn't feel the same way? You create a fake relationship to get over the embarrassment, of course! This has got to be the most interesting spin on the "best friend's little sister" romance I've ever read! Tucker and Amelia are two of the funniest characters that I've read about recently! Amelia, despite having really horrible parents, has amazing big brothers, that support her and love her. But there is still something missing. What she thinks is love, turns out to be wishful thinking. What starts out as a way to make her family back off, turns into something that makes her want more. Tucker has spent his entire life alone. A product of the foster care system, he has made his own family, of friends that always have his back. When his best friend's little sister asks for something totally out of left field, he starts seeing her in a different light. Slowly, despite their best intentions, things change, and neither know what to do about it. This book was at times funny, and at times serious. Amelia is one mixed up individual, always helping others, but not knowing what to do about her own life. Tucker, on the other hand, is a loner, never letting anyone behind his walls, even those closest to him. He thinks he knows what road his life is on, and is thrown into left field when things take a surprising turn. As always, with this author's series, family plays a huge part in the story, which leaves me with warm, fuzzy feelings, and a huge smile on my face. This book fits in well with the previous stories about this family, and with the entire Montgomery World. If you've read, and loved them, you will enjoy Amelia and Tucker's story!

I was more than thrilled when I entered into this one. I like seeing where the path leads when you try to fool some but in the end the ones that are really only fooled end up being the ones that were doing the fooling. In this one Amelia needs to have Tucker to be something he did not expect. With each their own they begin to realize that they do not really know each other,especially her with him. They both have had their falls but this one will start to bring them up. This author will give you some deep feelings and hope things do not go awry. This kept a hold for sure from beginning to end.
