I've always had a huge crush on my dad's college friend.
So when Dad tells me he's invited David to spend the holidays with us in New Orleans, I'm beyond thrilled.
I can't wait for him to wrap me up in his safe, warm embrace.
I can't wait for caroling in Jackson Square or the way the flickering lights from the fireplace make him look so incredibly gorgeous.
I can't wait to see his possessive streak come out when other men look at me.
Wait a sec...what?
I never thought he'd see me as more than his friend's daughter.
Off-limits in every single way.
Turns out I was wrong...very wrong...
Now he's telling me I'm his. He's telling me he is never letting me go.
It's everything I've ever wanted.
It's everything I've pined for and more.
But I know the holiday season can't last forever...
Even if he tells me my forever is with him.
“I can’t lose my daughter. She’s my baby girl. My everything. So…” He took a deep breath. “Whitney, will you marry me?”
When hot single dad Kyle Webber asks me this question, I’m in shock.
After all, it’s been years since we’ve seen each other.
Although I’ve never been able to forget him.
That’s what your first big love does to you, right?
I made the biggest mistake of my life when I left our small town to chase my dreams in LA.
He went on to marry Josie, the biggest b*itch in town.
A woman who gives selfish a whole new name.
No surprise that it didn’t last.
But now she wants to get sole custody of their sweet little daughter Katie.
To convince the court that he has a stable family life, Kyle asks me for help.
He wants us to fake a marriage. To pretend to be in love.
Really? Live with him in the same house? Sleep in the same bed?
It sounds like a plan destined to end in misery. My misery.
Because since I’ve met Kyle again, my heart screams one sentence over and over again:
“Please, SAY IT’S NOT FAKE!”
