Scandal at a society wedding!

Can he resist the runaway bride?

After helping Nikki Lucas flee her high-society wedding, privacy-loving best man Max Conway never expected to be accused of having an affair with the bride! As the media scandal dies down, he escapes to a remote island—and comes face-to-face with Nikki! Their connection is undeniable but she’s completely off-limits. Yet as the sun sets in paradise, both are struggling to resist…


A runaway bride meets her match! With a drama filled kick off, this story takes us on a journey of picking up the pieces after life doesn’t go as planned. It’s a bit slow in overall pace, but still enjoyable. The characters have a nice connection, and the plot has an interesting flair to it.

Max Conway didn’t know what he was getting himself into when he agreed to be the best man for an old school buddy. When faced with a distraught bride who needed help running away from the wedding that was about to happen, he reluctantly helped her. He never expected it to all turn around on him as the gossip headlines claimed he whisked the bride away for himself!

Nikki Lucas is so appreciative to Max for his help, but if she would have known she would turn his life into such a circus, she wouldn’t have put him in that position. Now six months later, happenstance brings them face to face again on an exotic island. Fear of additional scandal has them vowing to stay away from each other, but temptation is mighty strong when they both are feeling a such attraction to each other!

Fool her once, as her best friend.

Fool her twice…as her fake fiancé?

Top Boston interior designer Jules Brogan has no shortage of work. So why say yes to designing a yacht with Noah Lockwood—her former best friend who disappeared from her life ten years ago after one smoldering encounter? Especially since the job requires posing as Noah’s fiancée! But what are old friends for…especially if she can coax him into one more kiss?


Tempers flare as passion ignites! With the first book in the Love In Boston series, we get the groundwork for the families it’s going to center around. It was a slow start with a lot of characters being thrown our way up front, as well as a little unorthodox change of who’s perspective we are looking at now and then, but once you get the gist of the story down pat, it picks up. There’s definitely a good foundation for future drama being laid here! An enjoyable kick off, looking forward to more of the series!

Jules Brogan is at the top of her game as an interior designer, so when her former best friend wants to contract her for a job, she’s not a bit interested! He walked away from her life ten years ago without a backward glance … and now he thinks he can come waltzing back in like nothing ever happened? No way!

Noah Lockwood left Boston and never planned to return, but when his family history is in danger, he can’t just sit back and watching things fall apart. He has to convince Jules to help him … and not only does she have to agree to do the job, but she also has to agree to be his significant other while doing it!
