Businesswoman Claire Bennett doesn’t believe in romance. Lucky (or unlucky) for her, retired soccer star Ethan DuBois doesn’t believe in walking away from a challenge . . .
A Standalone Silver Bay Novel by Award-Winning Author Amelia Judd
Single-mom Claire Bennett needs to find a boyfriend. Fast. Problem is, she doesn’t have the time or desire (or maybe even the ability) to manage a relationship right now. Determined to avoid her pending public humiliation, Claire resorts to hiring a fake boyfriend. Though unable to deny her troublesome attraction for her new faux beau, Claire’s confident her plan will work as long as she keeps her feet firmly planted on the ground. Never again will she get swept away in a whirlwind romance that leaves her dizzy, flat on her butt, and full of regret when it ends.
Having played many positions in his career, retired soccer star Ethan DuBois happily agrees to take on the role of pretend boyfriend. After all, spending two months with the beautiful, intelligent, and intriguingly independent Claire promises to be an amusing distraction from the real—and infinitely more frustrating—reason he’s back in Silver Bay.
But being with Claire soon makes Ethan realize he wants her as his partner for more than a short-term pretense. Will the clock run out before Ethan convinces Claire that life is always better when you’re part of a team?
