Make one stupid bet, and suddenly, you’re fake dating your hot new neighbor…
There is nothing like hiding a secret identity from your roommate besties to complicate… everything. And when they decide I need a love life makeover, I can’t tell them why I don’t have time for their schemes.
Retirement home nurse by day, lead singer of a rock band by night. Not on the schedule: Men. I’d rather cuddle with Bernice, the hangry boa next door.
I can’t think of an excuse fast enough to get out of betting my prime parking space against them finding me true love, but luckily, they pick the worst possible guy for me.
Sure, our new neighbor, Josh, is hot, but he’s from an Austin family whose money is so old it’s dusty. Been there, done that, and I’m not going back to be broken again by a man just like my ex. This bet is as good as won.
The thing is, Josh isn’t easy to shake, especially after he discovers my rock ‘n’ roll alter ego.
When a fake dating agreement, a cursing parrot, and our late-night balcony talks lead to kisses so hot they melt me, I’m forced to decide: can I gamble my heart on a society guy who is expected to settle down with someone exactly not like me?
USA Today bestselling author Melanie Jacobson returns with this laugh-out-loud romcom that delivers plenty of sparks without the spice.
