What can I say, I am on a Lucy Score kick! I can’t stop. I’ve enjoyed two of her books and this one makes THREE.
Luke Garrison is a hometown hero, a member of the National Guard ready to deploy again. Strong, sweet, and sexy, he doesn’t have a girlfriend and doesn’t want one. When the wildly beautiful Harper stumbles into his life, though, he realizes that she’s the perfect decoy. A fake girlfriend to keep his family off his back until he’s out on another mission.
So what if a single bite of her lip sends his mind to wicked places? He can control himself. Can’t he?
Harper was on her way to starting a new life… again. But something about Luke makes her want to settle down in this small town and make Luke’s house a home. When his arms wrap around her like steel, she finally knows what it’s like to feel safe. Protected.
One night of sleeping in the same bed turns into something much, much more… and soon Luke can’t keep his mind off Harper’s wide gray eyes, or his hands off of her luscious curves. He never thought he’d feel this way about a woman again. But he knows that he can’t tell her the truth about his dark past, and she can’t reveal to him what she’s running from.
Anyway, this isn’t a real relationship. It’s only for a month. Only pretend. Until it isn’t…
Review: This woman does romance so freaking well that it makes no sense!!! Each book I’ve had the pleasure of reading has hypnotized me to the point of laziness. We’ve literally eaten take since I started this book because once I walked in the house my nose was in this book. I laughed, swooned and laughed again. I loved that it referenced Maryland (hometown girl) and the heroine, Harper, is simply amazing.
Harper is the BFF that we all hope we have. The girl that has your back no matter what and will definitely go to jail with you. That is all Harper, she doesn’t take any crap. This girl had me cracking up with her foolishness and loving her all at once. Luke is quiet and reserved…the strong silent type. These two together were great and just when I thought I was about to reach the end, Ms. Score took a left turn at Albuquerque and the story got EVEN BETTER. I had a ball reading this story and you definitely will too. 5 stars for this small town romance.
