Sometimes the wedding of the century calls for desperate measures.

And sometimes those desperate measures are to pretend the person you hate most is actually your boyfriend.

After years of working her tail off at her event-planning business, Maggie Mitchell is ready for a vacation. With nothing on her mind but R & R, she’s enjoying the warm weather of Bora Bora when in saunters Brody McFadden, her brother’s best friend and also her sworn enemy. Thanks to years of tension between the two―kicked off by a make-out session at her brother’s wedding that ended horribly―Maggie has sworn to stay away from the man. That is, until she finds out he’s in Bora Bora for his boss’s daughter’s wedding, hoping to use the trip to win a real future at the company.

Maggie promised herself she wouldn’t even think of work on the island, but as word spreads about the “wedding of the century” taking place in the midst of her vacation, she realizes offering her services as a bridesmaid and planner could bring her business to the next level. The only catch? She needs to pose as Brody’s girlfriend to get the job…while letting him stay in her peaceful bungalow.

Tensions rise, irritation flairs, and despite years’ worth of bickering behind closed doors, Maggie can’t quite squash the sparks building between her and her new fake boyfriend, especially when she learns the real reason their first kiss was cut short. But as the wedding day draws closer and everything starts to go wrong, it just might be Brody who sends Maggie’s business crashing down―and her heart along with it.

EXCERPT:

 

“What about you?” Jude asks. “Do you have your dream wedding planned, Brody?” There’s a bit of a chuckle to his voice so I give it a thought.

“Isn’t it obvious? Rebels stadium. Wouldn’t have it anywhere else.” As if I just insulted her, Maggie sits up to look me in the eyes, making me and Jude laugh. I pinch her chin. “Nah, princess, it would be at the little white chapel. What you want, I want.” And I don’t know if it’s the talk of weddings or the drinks at dinner, but I decide to take that moment. I lean into her and gently kiss her on the mouth.

I feel her stiffen under my touch only for a moment before her mouth melts against mine.

And what a massive mistake because, holy crap, those lips. I forgot how delicious they are.

How perfect they are for my mouth.

How sweet.

I forgot what it was like to be trapped within the taste of her mouth and the feel of her body pressed up against mine.

And most importantly, I forgot how easy it is to get lost, caught up in the moment, and forget that there are two people sitting across from us, clearly witnessing this kiss.

That snaps me out of my haze, and I pull away before I can get too lost and make a scene in front of Haisley and Jude.

But as I pull away and lock eyes with Maggie, I can see it in her expression, the confusion mixed with the lust—the same look I saw the night of Gary’s wedding.

The same look that was burned into my brain for the rest of the night. The one I tried to shake but struggled so much with, even months later. That’s when I decided there was only one way to fix it—bury myself in work.

What a freaking full circle. The work I buried myself in brought me right back to Maggie.

Life can be sick and twisted sometimes.
