A struggling waitress and the heir to a major Seattle company stumble into a high-profile fake engagement while simultaneously trying to keep up with their own love lives in this flirty fall rom-com!

Lexi Danby is looking for some no-strings, fall fun. Once a college track star, she was forced to drop out when her father passed away. Now she’s trying to make ends meet while putting herself through school and caring for her grieving mother. When her comically bad waitressing lands her directly in the path of a handsome, charming stranger named Will, Lexi may just have found the distraction she’s been looking for. Their first date looks promising until a misunderstanding at a party thrusts Lexi and Will into a fake engagement they can’t talk themselves out of. And Will turns out to be a member of Seattle royalty.

Will Grand is heir to a major company, and Seattle’s most eligible bachelor. But he’s been placed in charge of an important merger with a company that values family above all else, and needs to show them that he’s settled down. While a fake engagement is advantageous from a business standpoint, it’s not so great for a budding relationship with a woman who’s wary of commitment. With a woman who Will is beginning to care about much more than he could have anticipated.

As Lexi gets a taste of Will’s glamorous world and the pair keeps up the pretense of their fake engagement for the press, they decide to see where a more casual relationship takes them out of the spotlight. And amid apple picking in comfy flannels, outdoor breweries in the crisp air, and fun Halloween preparations, Lexi starts to realize the scariest part of the season might just be taking a chance on love.

"Sophie Sullivan consistently crafts romances to root for." -Courtney Kae, author of In the Event of Love and In the Case of Heartbreak

This was such a wholesome, funny, hit ya in the feels romance story. I liked this book for so many reasons -it's Seattle setting, it's great lead characters, and fake-relationship-trope done right. The overall writing and emotions were all so lovely.

A special thank you to NetGalley and St. Martin’s Press for an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

Another home run of a sweet romance from Sophie Sullivan. Much like her other novels, Sullivan does a fantastic job with character development - particularly with developing their motivations - something often missing in the genre. Although the ultimate plot conflict came later than expected, the story moved at a perfect pace.

If you're looking for a well written sweet fake-relationship-trope romance that will leave you with all the warm fuzzies, add this to your to read list!

Thank you to NetGalley, author, and publisher for an ARC in exchange for my honest opinions.
