Fall in love on the shores of Sugar Lake in the small town of Sweetwater with Willow Dalton and Zane Walker.
This sassy, spirited baker is fine with heat—but is her fake fiancé too hot to handle?
Bakery owner Willow Dalton’s friendship with Zane Walker has always been a bit complicated. Now a scrumptiously hot A-list actor, Zane’s always had a reputation as player. He’s arrogant, and he’s definitely not boyfriend material. Sure, he did Willow a favor by agreeing to take her virginity before college, but is that reason enough to go along with a fake engagement a decade later—even if it comes with a real diamond ring?
Zane should have known better. Nothing involving Willow has ever been easy. Still, he knows her better than anyone, and becoming America’s hottest new leading man means cleaning up his reputation. An “engagement” too curvy, sass-mouthed Willow is the perfect PR move . . . provided no one gets hurt.
Now Zane and Willow’s little white lie has turned into an irresistible recipe for sweet temptation. And soon no one will be able to tell the difference between their fake engagement or the real thing—including them.
The Real Thing is book 1 in the Sugar Lake series by Melissa Foster. If you haven’t read any of her books yet, you are sincerely missing out. You’ll fall in love with her after the very first book you read.
In this book, we meet the Dalton family. Willow Dalton has had a crush on her brother’s best friend Zane for as long as she can remember. In fact, she even asked Zane to take her virginity before she left for college!
Fast forward to many years later and Zane is now an A-list actor and Willow is still in their hometown and runs a very successful bakery.
Zane now has to clean up his reputation from being a party boy. Who does he reach out to, to help with this? Why of course Willow!
They have an arrangement for a fake engagement. Will their true feelings come through? Will they pull this off or will it blow up in their faces?
You’ll fall in love with this book and find yourself rooting for Willow and Zane the whole way through!
