YA author Salvatore (And They Lived…) makes their adult romance debut. When Teddy Hughes’s marriage and business implode simultaneously, moving back home to Louisiana seems like his only choice—until a one-night stand leads to an unexpected second option. Entrepreneur Cole Vivien is in a bind. The creator of a sex-positive app that allows consumers and sex workers to form connections and has taken the world by storm, he’s not used to needing help from others. But he has a potential investor to impress and a family wedding to deal with, and both are more likely to go well if he can demonstrate that he’s in a solid relationship. One problem—he doesn’t do love; he doesn’t even believe in kissing anymore. Hiring Teddy to play his fake boyfriend for a week seems like the perfect solution all around. Surely, nothing could go wrong, and he’s definitely not going to fall in love.
VERDICT This will draw readers in with its Pretty Woman vibes and queer love story.
