A special Thank You to Carina Press and NetGalley for this e-book to review.
Lucinda Darling thinks she's ready to get married. Even though Donald doesn't give her butterflies, the heiress is ready to make her marriage work. She's got the dress, she's at the church and her fiancé...is making out with his ex. So Lucinda stuffs her tulle skirts into her tiny sports car and hits the road...only to have her car break down.
Jake Parker knows he's not ready to settle down. But Grandma Hattie is sick, so, to make her happy, he's returning home to find himself a fake fiancée. When Jake rescues Lucy from the side of the highway, she goes from runaway bride to temporary fiancée.
Lucy hopes to escape the public eye in small-town Georgia, but she doesn't expect to fall for Jake's charming hometown, let alone Jake himself. Soon Jake and Lucy both start to wish their lie were true. But Lucy knows she must stop their pretense before Jake's family—and her heart—are hurt so badly they'll never recover.
What a cute book! I just loved it! I fell in love with Jake Parker from his first scene. This is a quick read with plenty of southern charm. I liked Lucinda and found her to be more than what she seemed on the outside. The romance, oh the romance! I could have done with some more of it actually. Yet, I enjoyed it. If you are looking for some brain candy, then this is the book. Let it whisk you away to Pride, Georgia!!
