Description:

What's wrong with a little white lie?

There are a lot of things Ali Marshal doesn't do: pink anything, a day without chocolate, and Hawk, her sister's ex-husband. Sure, he's a sexy former NHL star who can make her pulse pound with just a wink. But he belonged to Bridget first. And no matter how long she's had a crush on him, how great he's always been to her dad, or that her sister is engaged to someone else now and Ali needs a date to their engagement party, she can't give in to temptation. Can she?

It's been years since his disastrous marriage crashed and burned, and Bradley Hawk has finally moved on. So when Bridget blows back into town with her new fiancé, throwing the engagement party of the year, he could care less . . . until Ali tells one little lie that lands him smack dab in a fake relationship. After one promise to be Ali's date and two of the hottest kisses he's ever had, Hawk can't deny how much he wants her. But what happens when this fauxmance starts to feel very, very real?

My Thoughts: 

This book follows Ali Marshal who has always been the one trying to keep her family together.  She has always sacrificed herself for others when she finds out she might be featured in magazine her father throws her a party and her sister Bridget shows up and steals the show announcing her engagement.  Ali reeling from the spotlight changing directions and the appearance of her mother does the extreme and kisses Hawk.  Bridgets ex-husband and convinces her sister that Hawk and her are a thing.

Hawk has no idea what hit him he just knows he's enjoying spending time with Ali and being her friend when the tables turn and Ali kisses him, his emotions go all over.  He's along for the ride but as it's gets busier and busier he's noticed something about Ali that makes him wonder if he picked the wrong sister all along.

This book was great to go back to Destiny Bay and see what everyone is up to.  It's especially great to learn more about Ali and Hawk and their background and families.  What I really enjoyed was watching the two try to figure out what was going on in their relationship and how far it would go.  And to see the happily ever after.  This book is great for all romance lovers.  It brings you in like Cedar Cove does.
