Something Like Love
Against All Odds: The St. James Family #2
Claudia Y. Burgoa — 2021
We have to pretend that what we have is something like love… I’m down on my luck. Scratch that. This is the worst week of my life. Enter the last person I want to deal with: Burke St. James. He’s wealthy. He’s a womanizer. And a big liar. And it turns out we need each other. Burke needs a fiancée to seal the deal of a lifetime. I need help or my business is going belly-up. So, Burke very non-romantically asks me to marry him. Well, he asks me to be fake engaged to him, anyway. I’ll attend a few dinners, pretend I’m in love, and meet the family. In exchange, he’ll invest in my company and help me launch it off the ground. All is easy, except his kisses feel more real than they should. And the sex…damn, we’re not supposed to have sex. It’s all for show…right? Did I mention he’s a really good liar? Pretending not to fall in love is more complicated than I thought.
