Love, Naturally

St. Martin’s Griffin. Jan. 2024. 320p. ISBN 9781250875839. pap. $18. CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE
When concierge Presley Ayer’s boyfriend dumps her on the day she surprises him with a trip to a remote wilderness resort, she spontaneously decides to take the trip solo. She’s never hiked, fished, or even taken a boat ride, but she figures the new experiences will help her forget her heartbreak. Beckett Keller isn’t sure what this city girl is doing at his family’s lodge, but he respects the fact that she’s thrown herself into the trip with enthusiasm, if not skill. When one of Presley’s social media posts—with a shirtless Beckett in the background—goes viral, he and the resort suddenly have more attention than is comfortable. Presley agrees to pose as Beck’s girlfriend to save him from enthusiastic guests, and soon real feelings are sneaking into their fake relationship. But Presley only booked a 10-day stay, and the couple will have to find out if they’re brave enough to try out a new life together.
VERDICT Sullivan’s (A Guide to Being Just Friends) satisfying opposites-attract, fish-out-of-water romance (complete with fictional fish) is sure to make readers smile.
