THE REAL THING (Sugar Lake Series, Book 1) by Melissa Foster
Publication Date: September 5, 2017
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Bakery owner Willow Dalton’s friendship with Zane Walker has always been a bit complicated. Now a scrumptiously hot A-list actor, Zane’s always had a reputation as a player. He’s arrogant, and he’s definitely not boyfriend material. Sure, he did Willow a favor by agreeing to take her virginity before college, but is that reason enough for her to go along with a fake engagement a decade later—even if it comes with a real diamond ring?
Zane should have known better. Nothing involving Willow has ever been easy. Still, he knows her better than anyone, and becoming America’s hottest new leading man means cleaning up his reputation. An “engagement” to curvy, sass-mouthed Willow is the perfect PR move…provided no one gets hurt.
Now Zane and Willow’s little white lie has turned into an irresistible recipe for sweet temptation. And soon no one will be able to tell the difference between their fake engagement and the real thing—including them.
I’m going to start by saying that Zane was a little too good to be true, and Willow a little too emotional. Now that that has been said, I did enjoy this sweet romance with a sexy bite. It’s well written and a fast read, I found myself caught up in the lives of their friends and family. A good summer read.
