THERE'S NOTHING LIKE THE REAL THING
After dropping out of pastry school and messing up her big break on a reality cooking show, Leah Sullivan needs to accomplish something in her life. But when she returns home to Lucky Harbor, she finds herself distracted by her best friend, Jack Harper. In an effort to cheer up Jack's ailing mother, Dee, Leah tells a little fib - that she and Jack are more than just friends. Soon pretending to be hot-and-heavy with this hunky firefighter feels too real to handle . . .
No-strings attachments suit Jack just fine - perfect for keeping the risk of heartbreak away. But as Jack and Leah break every one of their "just friends" rules, he longs to turn their pretend relationship into something permanent. Do best friends know too much about each other to risk falling in love? Or will Jack and Leah discover something new about each other in a little town called Lucky Harbor?

Another Shalvis win. Not my favorite heroine but I ADORED Jack! Predictable in nearly every way but that's kinda why they are comfort reads for me. And I love every second.
I liked this story with its small town camaraderie, hunky hero and Facebook fun but the romantic relationship was just a variation of the same old stubborn no commitment male and female who agrees then falls in love. Chef Leah tells the mom of her old best friend firefighter Jack that they are dati...
