About The Real Thing:Fall in love on the shores of Sugar Lake in the small town of Sweetwater with Willow Dalton and Zane Walker. This sassy, spirited baker is fine with heat—but is her fake fiancé too hot to handle? Bakery owner Willow Dalton’s friendship with Zane Walker has always been a bit complicated. Now a scrumptiously hot A-list actor, Zane’s always had a reputation as a player. He’s arrogant, and he’s definitely not boyfriend material. Sure, he did Willow a favor by agreeing to take her virginity before college, but is that reason enough for her to go along with a fake engagement a decade later—even if it comes with a real diamond ring? Zane should have known better. Nothing involving Willow has ever been easy. Still, he knows her better than anyone, and becoming America’s hottest new leading man means cleaning up his reputation. An “engagement” to curvy, sass-mouthed Willow is the perfect PR move…provided no one gets hurt. Now Zane and Willow’s little white lie has turned into an irresistible recipe for sweet temptation. And soon no one will be able to tell the difference between their fake engagement and the real thing—including them.
Every woman needs a summer beach read and this is it.
This is the story of Zane and Willow. Two people with a past who can't seem to get out their own way to know that they are perfect for each other.
Willow is a baker, she knows sweets, and she knows Zane and too much of either is going to get her into a lot trouble. When Zane makes her an offer she needs to refuse but can't she turns her life upside down and it may just be the best thing shes ever done. Forced to confront her feelings and the lies she tells herself. This fake engagement produces real results.
Willow is a little weaker than the female leads I usually champion in stories I read. I wish she would've handled some situations differently.
Zane is movie star with all the trimmings. Good looking, rich, bad boy...complete package. He needs to clean up his bad boy womanizer rep to be a convincing leading man in a hearthrob pic. So he picks the only woman he trusts and the only one he's ever loved. When she agrees he realizes that fake fiance isn't good enough. Now to convince her. Zane is swoon worthy like you'd expect from a leading man.
The only issue I had in this book is the crippling insecurity that the female character experiences. I didn't quite understand the conflict, I read it several times and I don't know what happened that qualified the heroine's severe feelings of doubt.
The story was good though and its a quick easy and fun read while relaxing and soaking up the last days of summer.
