Favorite Contemporary Romance of 2019

Imagine watching the woman you love live out her dream love story… without you.
Standing on the sidelines, swallowing pain and pride, watching her fall more and more in love. Knowing each second she’s with him is a chance for her to completely forget about us.
That’s okay. I’m everything wrong. I would only hurt her. Break her heart.
Now imagine a knock at the door and it’s her. She’s crying. He cheated on her. She needs someone. She says she needs me.
I have to fight this. I can’t let her fall for me the way I’ve fallen for her. I’m going to crush her worse than he did.
Imagine her wanting a kiss. Begging with her eyes. I’m a strong man… but she’s… even stronger.
One kiss.
Two hearts.
Three words…

It started out as a joke.
I needed a wedding date. Jocko Brewer at my office was the perfect candidate.
Handsome. Rich. Slightly cocky. Great in bed.
And now… my fiancé.
The ring was his idea to get his mother off his back about ‘getting serious with someone.’
Flashing the enormous rock front of my ex in Cancún was a nice bonus.
Jocko has his reasons for wanting this fake engagement, and I have mine.
But I never imagined our time in the sun would be the best five days of my life.
I definitely never thought I would fall for a man like Jocko, a player who has broken more hearts than I have pairs of shoes.
But a deal’s a deal, and five days in paradise is all we get. Now how do I stop myself from falling in love? Because this is only temporary.
Turns out five days can change your whole world.
