Boyfriend Material by Alexis Hall
This is a delightful rom-com about two complete opposites, Luc and Oliver, who agree to fake date each other, each for his own reasons. But, as so often happens with fake dating (at least in Romance novels), the more time they spend together and the more they get to know each other, the more they start to realize that they may have not-fake feelings for each other. If you’re looking for a book that will make your heart sing and maybe make you happy-cry, this is the book you’ve been waiting for.

Here’s Meg Cabot, delivering another charming entry in her Little Bridge Island series. This time around, we’ve got librarian Molly Montgomery fleeing a failed engagement and rough-and-ready sheriff John Hartwell returning to his childhood home for a fresh start. Someone leaves a baby in the library, which brings Montgomery and Hartwell together. Naturally, sparks fly and romantic tensions build. The mystery can’t be solved until these two put aside their differences and look deeply into one another’s eyes. Why can’t love be easy?
Marvelous tag line, by the way: “He’s by the book. She’s read all the books.”
