Description:

THERE'S NOTHING LIKE THE REAL THING

After dropping out of pastry school and messing up her big break on a reality cooking show, Leah Sullivan needs to accomplish something in her life. But when she returns home to Lucky Harbor, she finds herself distracted by her best friend, Jack Harper. In an effort to cheer up Jack's ailing mother, Dee, Leah tells a little fib - that she and Jack are more than just friends. Soon pretending to be hot-and-heavy with this hunky firefighter feels too real to handle . . .

No-strings attachments suit Jack just fine - perfect for keeping the risk of heartbreak away. But as Jack and Leah break every one of their "just friends" rules, he longs to turn their pretend relationship into something permanent. Do best friends know too much about each other to risk falling in love? Or will Jack and Leah discover something new about each other in a little town called Lucky Harbor?

My Thoughts:

Leah has been running for so long that it's a surprise when she is back in Lucky Harbor due to her grandmother needing her help.  Leah has always had a thing for Jack Harper but will he realize he loves her too?  I love watching Leah grow and accept the fact that her father isn't there anymore to brow beat her with how much a failure she is, or how he created a anxiety ridden woman.

Jack Harper is taking care of his mother Dee as she recovers from Cancer, Jack is also drowning in his work and he notices Leah is around but doesn't want to get his heart broken again like that last time.  When Leah tells Dee that Jack and Leah are a couple how far will the fake couple go to make it look real?  And when does the fantasy turn into reality?

This book was great full of so much reading about firefighters and the investigation into an arson and find out who it was.  Also reading about Leah and the reality food show she was on and how that ended.  It was a fabulous story which makes me glad to go back to Lucky Harbor over and over again!
