From WSJ Bestselling Author Ilsa Madden-Mills comes a new stand-alone contemporary romance.

Fake engaged to the hottest quarterback in the country? SCORE.

They say nothing compares to your first kiss,
But our first kiss was orchestrated for an audience.
Our second kiss . . . that one was REAL.
He cradled my face like he was terrified he’d f*ck it up.
He stared into my eyes until the air buzzed.
Soft and slow, full of sighs and little laughs,
He inhaled me like I was the finest Belgian chocolate,
And he’d never get another piece.
A nip of his teeth, his hand at my waist . . .
And I was lost.
I forgot he was paying me to be his fake fiancée.
I forgot we weren’t REAL.
Our kiss was pure magic, and before you laugh and say those kinds of kisses don’t exist,
Then you’ve never touched lips with Max Kent, the hottest quarterback in college history.

Three months. Two hearts. One fake engagement.

So I saw this cover and I fell in love, it is just simply gorgeous. Simple yet eye catching. The cover and the model drew me in but the story kept me glued to the page. To say I devoured this book is an understatement. I was sneaking away from my desk at work to squeeze in a few chapters. Not to mention hiding from my family when I got home so I could be alone with Sunny and Max. Awesome couple I cannot say enough about the chemistry these two had. Hot! Hot! from the first moment we meet them, to their first "fake kiss". 

Max is a college football star, Sunny is a girl who ran away from an abusive home and found herself a new place in life. They share a bond they haven't realize exists. A moment in time that bonded them together as soul mates an event they shared that changed their lives. 

Max is your all around handsome, sexy, football god but there is more to him than looks. Football is his life and after the last disaster of a relationship he has no desire for another one. He needs to concentrate on his future in football. When Sunny comes knocking on his door all sassy and sexy she throws him for a loop. Though neither one of them want a relationship Max has a proposition for Sunny, be my fake girlfriend for a day lets make our ex's jealous. Sunny is hesitant at first but Max wins her over with his abundant charm. He wants her and she wants him there is no doubt about it. 

Of course one day turns into months and before we know it these two can't resist the connection they have toward each other. The building friendship is beautiful they find themselves sharing things they wouldn't normally share with anyone else. When they finally give into their feelings oh my god it was magic. There are a few twists and turns secrets revealed hearts broken and repaired.

"I kissed her scars, my hands tracing the lines of the tattoo on her nape. Time heals all wounds, but the scars remain, making you who you are. To me, her s were a beautiful mosaic. I admired her more because of them...because she'd come out of darkness and learned to fly."

I loved the background characters Sunny's grandma was a hoot and her friend Isabella fiercely loyal I love that kind of female bonding. Max's best bud Tate was drool worthy and also loyal to Max.

The story as a whole was well written and well developed. Emotional at times, sad at times and even funny at times. There was never a couple more matched than Max and Sunny. A wonderful story to read, I didn't want it to be over. This was my first book from this author but I plan on picking up her other books I hear they are awesome as well. 

"Sometimes there really is a bigger plan. Sometimes there really is that one person. Sometimes true love finds you no matter what."
