About this ebook

Cooper Grant is not my type. Yes, he’s drool-worthy, with that glint in his blue eyes and the jaw-dropping way he fills out his jeans. Yes, other women might fall all over themselves for a glimpse of his slow, crooked smile. I’m not other women.

He hates me. And the feeling is mutual.

In a town as small as ours, it’s pretty hard to avoid him...and it’s completely impossible once I wake up in a hospital bed to find Cooper pacing the floor of my room.

He’s rumpled. He’s frantic. And he’s swearing I’m his fiancee.

What the hell?

I hate him, but he saved my life. So when he asks me to lie and pretend we’re engaged, I have no choice but to play along. One moment we’re fighting like usual, the next moment he’s kissing me and slipping a gorgeous ring onto my finger. It’s enough to give me whiplash… again.

And maybe it’s the bump on my head, but it’s getting pretty easy to pretend I’m in love with him.

Now, instead of avoiding him, I’m surrendering to his crushing kisses. Our fiery hatred for each other isn’t nearly as hot as the nights we spend entwined.
The engagement is fake. The love is pretend.

But the way I ache for him is real.

And now I want to know… Can your worst enemy be your best lover?

Cooper has hated Willa ever since he found her cheating on his best friend Liam and he can't understand how Liam can remain her best friend. Since then everything she does irritates him, the way she nags Liam, the way she mothers all their friends, the way she crushes all the joy out of everything. Then on Liam's last night before he leaves for New York, he gets stupid drunk and Cooper and Willa have another argument at a party, Cooper was supposed to give Willa and Liam a life home but she storms off into the woods and he thinks good riddance. But when Liam makes Cooper promise to look after Willa and make sure she gets home safely he's moved by his conscience to go and find her and give her a lift home - instead he finds her lying by the side of the road having been hit by a car. Wracked by guilt, when the ambulance crew refuse to allow him to accompany her in the ambulance he tells one small lie and says they are engaged. Only trouble is, it's a small town and soon everyone knows. Now Cooper and Willa are living a lie to all their friends, family and the media, who love the idea of a young man saving his fiancee's life, but forced to act a part it doesn't seem as difficult as they might have thought. This is stock YA/NA romance, complete with a teenage boy who is a skilled and thoughtful lover, parental angst and small town gossip. The reason for Liam and Willa's break-up is blindingly obvious to anyone who has read NA/YA. It's not bad, the writing is good, the characters are likeable but it's nothing new or different.

This book was sooo fantastic!!! What a fantastic amazing book by Theresa when I started reading this I just couldn't put it down it had me flipping pages from start to finish. This book absolutely had me up in all my feel's. I didn't want this story to stop I wanted it to keep going I fell for these character's sooo hard. I can't wait to see what she writes next. I definitely would recommend reading this book it's sooo damn good have tissues on standby. This is my unbiased opinion and my review.

I'm on the fence with this one. I usually love this author, but this one didn't do it for me. I didn't like Cooper and Willa together. Cooper couldn't let go of the past (that really didn't have anything to do with him), until pretty much the main end of the story. Even then, he had to have someone else verify that for him. He couldn't trust Willa enough to take her word. Willa was bossy, but I guess that's to be expected when you pretty much raise your brother when you're 14. I couldn't imagine a mom putting a child in that situation. Don't even get me started on Liam. How could you let your "best friend" take the fall for you for YEARS, and never try to make it right?! It took someone else pointing it out to him before he even tries to apologize for it. I liked the other stories in the Crown Creek universe (the King brothers), this one wasn't for me. I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader’s copy of this book.

About the author

Theresa Leigh is a romance author whose love of reading is so intense, she sometimes injures herself by walking around with her nose in a book. She loves writing stories that have you feeling every emotion... sometimes all on the same page. 

After five years of writing romance under a penname, Theresa finally decided to own up to how she was spending her all time. Her mother now knows all about the kinds of books she writes. She reacted more positively to it than Theresa expected. 

Theresa lives and writes in the beautiful Finger Lakes region of New York State (not the city) (that distinction is important to her), where she lives with her husband, twin sons and twin orange cats, Pumpkin and Jackie O’Lantern. When she's not writing or reading, she enjoys eating too much Thai food, walking around barefoot, and cooing baby talk at her cats.
