Like You Love Me

by Adriana Locke

Release Date: February 16th 




Two childhood friends are playing house—and maybe playing for keeps—in USA Todaybestselling author Adriana Locke’s funny, sexy, and unpredictable marriage-of-convenience romance.

To save her Tennessee bed-and-breakfast, Sophie Bates needs a fast-cash miracle. Holden McKenzie, her childhood best friend, needs to prove to a prospective employer that he’s a committed man. Their fortunes on the line, Holden proposes…a solution.

He’ll take care of Sophie’s bills if she agrees to a temporary marriage of convenience. And why not? They’re comfortable together, they have fun, and they trust each other. It’s as simple as saying “I do.” But the off-the-cuff wedding has all of Honey Creek talking—and Sophie and Holden realizing that their perfect arrangement is working too well. If they’re not careful, this marriage could turn into a love story.

“I’m sure it’ll be okay,” I offer.

“Will it, though? Or will they look at me and be, like, ‘Hey, this guy was doing great but lost his job and fiancée in the course of a month. He’s probably going through something that we don’t want to be a part of.”

“Well . . . that does sound bad when you put it like that.”

We both laugh, the sound of our voices mixing together over our fish.

“I’ll give you a reference,” I joke. “I’m a great personal-reference giver. I gave one to Debbie’s sister, Donna, and she got a job at the bank. Probably because of me.”

“Oh, I’m sure it was because of you. Absolutely.”

“Whatever. It probably was. I come across as genuine and a really salt-of-the-earth kind of person,” I say, popping a fry into my mouth. “Besides, we’ve basically been engaged since you asked me to marry you with a giant candy ring.”

He laughs. “I might need you to be my fiancée for a while longer. To convince Montgomery I’m a good guy and that he should hire me.”

“I’d have him eating out of the palm of my hand.” I wink. “You’d probably be vice president of the company before it was over.”

Holden takes a bite of his sandwich and watches me over the top of it. There’s something about the way he looks at me with a twinkle in his eye that makes me squirm.

In a good way.

I think.
