Sawyer Sterling needs a girlfriend. With the family cabin up for grabs, he's desperate to prove that he could be the guy to “pass it on.” Of course, Sawyer also has a tendency to treat relationships like a contagious stomach flu that should be avoided at all costs. Now he needs a girlfriend-for-hire. Someone he can trust. Someone he could never, ever fall for...

Someone like his best friend's sister.

Sawyer's offer is exactly what Olivia Morgan needs. After traveling around the world for the last five years, the promise of a job and free accommodations is heaven. And sure, maybe Sawyer's a super-hot, charming guy with dimples made for kissing, but he’s not willing to be the guy—or relationship—she needs.

All it takes is one hot hook-up before this little hoax gets blown all to hell...

What I Thought


A lovely story to read!

Sawyer Sterling is a workaholic by day, trying to save the family business. By night, he lives for soccer, drinking and hookups. When his grandparents inform him and his cousin, Tyler, that the deeds for the family cabin will be going to one of them, he realises he needs to do whatever he has to do to get it. This is the place he thinks of as his home, where he feels close to his parents. To convince his grandparents he should get the cabin, he needs to make it look like he is in a stable relationship that has a future. 

Olivia is Sawyer’s best friends sister, who has been travelling for the last five years. She now needs a job and a place to stay. Sawyer offers Olivia a solution. Fake a relationship with him to help him get the deeds to the cabin for a few months and he will help her in return, with a place to stay and a job.

Along the way things start to change for them both. Feelings develop, but they both hold back. Sawyer thinking Olivia deserves better and also not realising quite how intense his feelings are, and Olivia thinking that Sawyer never wants to give up his bachelor lifestyle. 

An unexpected suprise, and a new client at work that will save the company, brings an end to the fake relationship. Can Sawyer and Olivia work everything out? Will they admit their feelings are reciprocated towards each other? Will Sawyer end up getting the deeds to the family cabin? Well, obviously I am not going to say. This, you will have to find our for yourselves 🙂

The chemistry between Sawyer and Olivia was undeniable from the very beginning. Their back and fourth banter was funny and Olivia was one of the few people that could challenge Sawyer and put him in his place. This story had a hot man, lots of flirting and sexual chemistry, Humor and drama. What more do you need from a good book? It was written from both, Sawyer and Olivia’s points of view. Heather’s writing is descriptive and it was smoothly written, it flowed easily throughout.  The secondary characters, especially Sawyers’s grandparents were all fun, they added a little more wit to the book. 

It was a quick and easy storyline to follow. An ideal read for a lazy sunday afternoon. This was a feel good and fun book to read!
