There’s nothing like the real thing.
After dropping out of pastry school and messing up her big break on a reality cooking show, Leah Sullivan needs to accomplish something in her life. But when she returns home to Lucky Harbor, she finds herself distracted by her best friend, Jack Harper. In an effort to cheer up Jack’s ailing mother, Dee, Leah tells a little fib – that she and Jack are more than just friends. Soon pretending to be hot-and-heavy with this hunky firefighter feels too real to handle…
No-strings attachments suit Jack just fine – perfect for keeping the risk of heartbreak away. But as Jack and Leah break every one of their “just friends” rules, he longs to turn their pretend relationship into something permanent. Do best friends know too much about each other to risk falling in love? Or will Jack and Leah discover something new about each other in a little town called Lucky Harbor?
Jill Shalvis always has some of the best heroes and she does not disappoint with Jack Harper. Jack’s best friend, Leah Sullivan, tells his mother, who has been sick, that they are a couple in order to raise her flagging spirits. Before long their “fake” dating turns into real feelings and they can’t keep their hands off each other. Always On My Mind is another great addition to Jill’s Lucky Harbor series. She's created the perfect little town that makes me wish it were real so I could live there. LOL I enjoy going back time and again and catching up with all the characters. You should definitely add it to your To Be Read pile!
