About this ebook

Straight out of college, five friends with a dream joined forces to build success. Ten years later, their exclusive fitness club, Flatiron Five Fitness, is the hottest destination in Manhattan. People flock to F5F to get fit, to get lucky, and even, to fall in love. The founding partners have been immune to F5F's romantic spell—at least, so far...

Tyler McKay has a plan...

And it doesn't include a serious relationship anytime soon. Between his day job and being a partner at Flatiron 5 Fitness, he's busy investing in the future. But Ty knows that going stag to his sister's wedding will encourage the family matchmakers: he needs a fake date, fast, in self-defense. When the one woman who hates him walks into F5F, Ty knows he's found the perfect candidate—that Shannyn doesn't play by anyone's rules just leaves Ty wanting more...

Shannyn Hawke is done with plans and dreams...

She had her whole life mapped out, but it all went wrong. Now, she's taking care of number one and living in the moment, with no concern for the future. If her college crush wants to trade a fake wedding date for physical satisfaction, Shannyn is in. But just one night proves that Tyler is everything she believes a guy should be, plus he takes it as a challenge to change her mind about him. Shannyn never wants to have her heart broken again, but she's falling hard and fast. Can she remember that it's just for show? Or will Tyler convince Shannyn to take a chance on forever again?

Just one fake date Was given an ARC in exchange for my honest opinion. Shannyn Hawke is a live in the moment kind of girl. She has been hired to take pictures of a gym called Flatiron Five Fitness. However one of the members is Tyler McKay who she had insulted while in college. Tyler McKay is one of the members of F5F. One of the things that Tyler remembers is Shannyn telling him that he was a smug entitled a-hole. Shannyn is willing to go on a fake date with Tyler in exchange for a night of sex. Must read to find out what happens.

Love what this author is doing with this series. This book is sexy, well paced, and having read the series (and loved it) fits beautifully into the series! Dual (plus) POV. Heat!! Heart that'll make you sniffle. Sassy kickass heroine (as we've come to expect of this series and author), and hero's with such integrity. Swoon! And you can't go past watching a polished hero confronted with the idea of putting sidewalk furniture in his fancy car... hahahahaha! This story brings you a glorious second chance at love premise that just takes you all the way. Highly recommended, and can't wait to see where this author goes with her new plan!

The chemistry, sexual, romantic and vulnerability between the two is amazing. It explored real feelings and heartbreak. My only complaint is the ending felt rushed.
