She needs a hero to save her beloved bookshop. He needs a girlfriend to satisfy his mother’s dying wish.
Can this grump and sunshine pair work out the perfect deal for a happily ever after?
If Cassidy Woods could make one dream come true, it would be to save her struggling bookshop from closing its doors. So when wealthy investor Liam Henry announces he is shutting down her store, Cassidy will do anything to change his mind, including becoming his girlfriend.
Liam Henry is running out of time. His mother’s final wish is that he’d meet the girl of his dreams before it’s too late. But Liam doesn’t stand a chance without some kind of help. No woman can see past his grumpy exterior to discover if he has a beating heart under his designer suit.
When his mother advertises his search for a girlfriend, Liam makes the best and worst plan of his life: ask Cassidy to become his fake girlfriend. Too bad she’s his gorgeous employee who’s about to get axed from her job.
Cassidy’s sunshine is the perfect opposite to his grump, forcing Liam to make an outrageous trade off he’s destined to regret.
Now everybody’s happy, except the mismatched couple who are headed toward a bumpy road that unravels every tightly constructed argument they’ve put up against love. In the end, only one of them can win.
When they’re thrown together in a race against time, will a plot twist they didn’t see coming ruin everything?
Or will they discover that in fooling everyone, the only person who’s fallen for it is themselves?
A delightful sweet romance with a grumpy boss and plucky heroine, both who are determined to save the day even if that means teaming up in a fake engagement to do it.
I really really enjoyed reading this book. It is about characters changing for the better. There are characters dealing with cancer and trying to save his family’s reputation. And, yes there is a character that readers love to hate. This is a sweet love story at its best. I recommend this book to all romance fans.
I was given a complimentary copy by the author and Celebrate Lit and these opinions are my own.

If I could send you anywhere on vacation to relax, I’d send you to Wild Harbor. It’s the perfect spot to fall in love and raise a family–the type of town you’ll never want to leave once you visit.
A Wedding in Wild Harbor is set in this fictional town on Lake Michigan, a place where you can sink your toes in the sand, let the waves lull you to sleep, and marvel over the gorgeous sunsets.
I created the fictional town based off of the quaint small towns along Lake Michigan that look like they belong in a Hallmark movie. It’s the quintessential small town with meddling neighbors, quirky townsfolk, and a coffee shop where everyone knows you by name.
The Wild Harbor sweet romance series follows the stories of four siblings–three sisters and one brother–and their journey to find love. Each story is a standalone and they don’t have to be read in order, though characters reappear in each book.
I hope the sweet love story and charming town give you a needed escape from your fast-paced life.
