Description:

When Grace Emerson's ex-fiancé starts dating her younger sister, extreme measures are called for. To keep everyone from obsessing about her love life, Grace announces that she's seeing someone. Someone wonderful. Someone handsome. Someone completely made up. Who is this Mr. Right? Someone...exactly unlike her renegade neighbor, Callahan O'Shea. Well, someone with his looks, maybe. His hot body. His knife-sharp sense of humor. His smarts and big heart.

Whoa. No. Callahan O'Shea is not her perfect man! Not with his unsavory past. So why does Mr. Wrong feel so...right?

My Thoughts: 

Grace Emerson has spent so many years inventing a boyfriend to be ex-boyfriend.  When she attends a wedding she yet again creates a new boyfriend Dr. Wyatt Dunn a pediatric surgeon, she knows it is wrong but sometimes it's easier to live in fantasy land then face the fact that finding a boyfriend isn't easy.

When Grace finally decides to hook up with Callahan O'Shea even though he has a shady past, what she learns is that sometimes telling a lie isn't always a good thing.  This book was so much fun Grace a history teacher and spends her spare time re-enacting wars in various times in history.

Also in this book we learn about Grace's connection to her baby sister Natalie and how Natalie has had things perfectly handed to her, her looks, charm, and Grace's ex-fiance and Grace thinks she is ok with it until Andrew the ex from hell makes a pass at Grace and she decides she doesn't need the Geeky Andrew when she has a real man like Callahan. 

I enjoyed this book so much and was a great book to read over Memorial Day.  Can't say enough great things about Kristan's writing abiltiy!
