Product Description

A fun romantic comedy and a classic beach romance!

From New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author GINNY BAIRD, a heartfelt and hilarious tale about two lost souls finding their way to each other.

Allison Murphy spends a week in March with the same group of girlfriends each year. What started as a college spring break tradition morphed into an annual reunion, ultimately encompassing boyfriends and husbands. Only Allison hasn't brought along a love interest in years, inspiring the others toward goodwill efforts at fixing her up. Faced with the prospect of yet another beach week mismatched with a virtual stranger, Allison's roommate Kate suggests a shocking alternative. Allison can "borrow" Kate's handsome and successful boyfriend for the trip. The trouble is Grady O'Brien stands for everything romantic idealist Allison is against. He's a ruthless businessman who will stop at nothing to get ahead. What Allison doesn't understand is just how far Grady is willing to go...

Wine industry entrepreneur Grady O'Brien knows an opportunity when he sees one. Allison Murphy runs a boutique wine label design company, while Grady heads up a firm that buys those sorts of businesses out. When Grady's girlfriend unexpectedly must attend a conference and their vacation plans are cancelled, she encourages Grady to accompany Allison to the beach instead. Grady agrees to participate in the ruse of playing Allison's boyfriend with a secret agenda in mind. He hopes to pave the way for acquiring Allison's Bella Fortuna Wine Designs by winning favor with its pretty owner and her friends. The one thing Grady doesn't count on losing in the bargain is his heart.

Note: I was given a complimentary copy for an honest review.

Having read most of this author's works, I can honestly say that she is growing as a writer. This story has great depth, character development, and believable plotline.

Allison Murphy is tired of her well meaning friends trying to set her up with a man each year when they meet for a week vacation together. When her roommate, Kate, suggests her boyfriend, Grady, as a stand-in "boyfriend," she's shocked. Who would suggest such a thing and who would actually agree to it?

Grady O'Brien can't believe what his girlfriend, Kate, just suggested. A fake boyfriend for a week? However, he figures that he can take advantage of the time with Allison to win her over to his idea of an agreement between his wine company and her wine label company.

What neither expected was their reaction to each other. However, what's going to happen when Allison learns of Grady's original plans regarding her company? Will love conquer all or was it all a ruse from the get go?

Did I like the story? Yes, I did.

I appreciated fully fleshed out characters. I understood Allison and her fears. She had some prejudice and emotional baggage to overcome, but I appreciated her maturity and willingness to grow as a person. I also understood Grady and his point of view. He's a businessman who sees a potentially good business deal and, why not go after it? And, when real emotions got tangled in the mix, I appreciated their mature reaction. They weren't like some hormonal teenager, they actually acted like adults. It was refreshing to read.

I also felt like I got to know the secondary characters. They're an eclectic mix and bring to the story a fun exchange.

I received a copy for an honest review. Allison is tired of having her friends finding a date for her. They meet in a different location each year to have fun and catch up with each other's lives. Her roommate, Kate, offers her boyfriend to be her companion for the week. As Grady pretends to listen to his music, he hears all the negative things Kate has to say about him. The town they live in has more women than men and Kate saves him from all of them. Finally, Allison agrees and the trip to this year's location goes well. Will they be able to keep their story straight and convince her friends that she and Grady are a couple? Will Grady's company make Allison dislike him even more?

Ginny Baird has written another truly enjoyable story! Whilst suspension of reality is needed for the story, (I honestly can't imagine anyone going along with the premise), it is a truly engaging read. As with all of Ms Baird's books, great beta readers and editors have made this a great book!

I enjoyed the twist and turns it took to get to the end I was pretty sure would happened. It was a good book that was light enjoyable. Just purchased the book she had previewed in the book "My Best Friend Bride". I hope to enjoy it as much as I did this book.

Badly written. Uninteresting. Repetitive. Quick wrap-up at the end. H and h were one-dimensional and simplistic.
