About this ebook

When a one-night stand, a fake relationship, and a demonic cat aren’t enough of a challenge—just add a pandemic!


Sportswriter Katie McIntyre thinks star pitcher Jason Price will be the perfect fling to help her forget her cheating ex. Their hook-up is supposed to end with breakfast.


But the coronavirus has other plans.


When Katie unexpectedly becomes her grandmother’s full-time caretaker, the disoriented elderly woman thinks Jason is Katie’s devoted beau. Katie pitches a pretend relationship to the star athlete. Jason knocks the fake-boyfriend ball out of the park. 


Before long, their increasingly real alliance is tested by disastrous cooking, adult-themed donuts, and a hairless, irascible cat. And COVID quarantine has a way of magnifying one small secret (Katie’s) and one tiny lie (Jason’s.) The harder this pair falls, the greater the risk of those hidden truths.


If your heartstrings have been tugged by the feel-good rom-coms Beach Read, Well Met, or The Friend Zone, then pull up a chair, because The C Word is the perfect romantic comedy escape for you.


The Love in 2020 Series includes:

Absolutely delightful!! It was hard for me to imagine how a romantic comedy during the recent covid crisis would play out, but the author has brilliantly written a lighthearted and funny tale that still captured the reality and feelings that came with the pandemic. Very well written and I adored the characters!! Looking forward to more from the author!

Third-party review
I thought this book was a formulaic sports romance. Then I found out partway through that it was about covid, something I've been avoiding in my media because I wanted escape. But neither of those ...
