Like You Love Me (Honey Creek #1) by Adriana Locke
wo childhood friends are playing house—and maybe playing for keeps—in USA Today bestselling author Adriana Locke’s funny, sexy, and unpredictable marriage-of-convenience romance.
To save her Tennessee bed-and-breakfast, Sophie Bates needs a fast-cash miracle. Holden McKenzie, her childhood best friend, needs to prove to a prospective employer that he’s a committed man. Their fortunes on the line, Holden proposes…a solution.
He’ll take care of Sophie’s bills if she agrees to a temporary marriage of convenience. And why not? They’re comfortable together, they have fun, and they trust each other. It’s as simple as saying “I do.” But the off-the-cuff wedding has all of Honey Creek talking—and Sophie and Holden realizing that their perfect arrangement is working too well. If they’re not careful, this marriage could turn into a love story.

This book was SUCH a nice surprise!!! I loved every minute of it. It light, it has a heroine that you’ll love and a hero that you’ll swoon over… characters that make you laugh.
I started it last night and of course finished it because i just couldn’t put it down. I’ve been in a funk lately so that it way I say it was such a nice surprise. And I just knew from 5% that I WAS LOVING IT.
AND let me tell you, this series is something I am looking forward to it because the Bates family is something to read about. And we have Sophie’s sister Liv and their brother Jabe. I feel it already.
About the book, Sophie has a B&B that needs to be paid soon, because her taxes are due and she faces her business to be taken away. In comes Holden, her childhood BFF who comes into town to take care of his Pop’s Vet clinic until he lands a new job.
Both of them need each other and a marriage of convenience is perfectly crazy and a solution for Sophie not to lose the business and Holden to be a married man in order to land his dream job. What they try to deny is the chemistry between them and that maybe, Sophie is what Holden is searching for, not a job.
LOVE, love, love it.
