But he has no idea how wacky “whatever it takes” can get. Before he knows it, his next blind date has helped herself to his photo, his gender, and details of his life to fuel a wild scheme—and he finds himself falling into it. After all, if his own life is a bust, why not try on someone else’s? What could possibly go wrong?
“An irresistible tale about finding love where you least expect it.”
Brea Brown's irreverent romantic comedies feature a roster of unlikely yet believable characters that will keep you turning pages late into the night—or laughing in public! She draws her inspiration from the age-inappropriate books she pilfered from her older sisters' bookshelves, her own mishaps, and her overactive imagination. She believes in making her characters work for their dreams, but she's a sucker for a happy ending. She lives in Springfield, Missouri with her husband and children, whom she considers her own wacky cast of characters.
Enter Jude Weatherington, fresh off the plane from England. While Libby would never dream of talking to him, she does dream of him. Fantasy Jude is refined, romantic, and completely wrapped up in Libby. There’s just one problem: he’s not real.
Real Jude's no slouch, either. He's quirky and clever, and easy to talk to. His strange vocabulary and sexy accent keep things interesting, too. There’s just one problem: he’s not a fantasy.
The more Libby gets to know Real Jude, the more he starts to pull ahead of the fantasy version. But Jude hates secrets. And if he knew the truth about her, it would no longer be a mystery to him—or anyone—why she's still single. He'd run away as fast as he could.
Or maybe not.
A girl can dream, right?
Everyone knew Bruno.
When a phone call changed my life, I refused to let anyone in.
Helpless, my best friends went to the only man in town she knew would help.
…Bruno, the notorious mobster who’s feared by everyone, including me.
And he had no problem breaking down my door.
Scooping me into his strong, capable arms.
Whispering soothing words in my ear.
Chasing away the fear threatened to swallow me.
But then he did the one thing I never expected him to do…he stayed.
Can the man who’s spoken about in whispers become my greatest savior?

It even seems her husband has been keeping information from her. Who would have thought Pastor Brice could have a ‘past’? Or that this recently divorced past might still have designs on his present… and future?
It’s a secret that Peyton's been keeping for Jen, however, that is her biggest concern. Of course, it’s not Peyton’s secret to tell; plus she promised she never would. After all, telling it could have some serious consequences—for more than just Jen. But is it wrong to keep silent about something so significant? What’s more important—friendship or truth?
It’s time for Peyton to learn to let go. But if she does, will anyone be there to catch her?
Yet Peyton is holding on to some of the old as well—old fears, old resentments, and her old bad habit of keeping secrets. When tragedy strikes a friend, and then comes for Peyton herself, she feels herself losing her grip, both on her emotional stability and her relationships with those she loves.
With her insecurity at an all-time high, Peyton must heal her raw wounds—both old and fresh—and uncover one more secret before she can be fulfilled at last.
