Nikko needs a scandal. Something, anything, that will keep media eyes on him and far away from the fight for his deadbeat brother's children. When he sees Jake Hallow in a bar, it seems a perfect solution. What would cause more noise than planting a kiss on a ruler-straight country star? He didn't expect Jake to kiss him back.
Jake's faced a lot of surprises in the forty-four years he's been alive. But being kissed senseless by the beautiful Nikko Star is something else entirely, and he doesn't at all know what to do with the long-banked feelings that Nikko turns into a blaze. Or the disappointment he feels when he learns the real reason Nikko kissed him.
But hearing Nikko's story, Jake decides to help, and agrees to give the world a fake love affair for the sake of protecting a couple of kids. And he's always believed in putting on one hell of a show—no matter how much it leaves him hurting when the lights go down.
