Summary (cr: goodreads)


After dropping out of pastry school and messing up her big break on a reality cooking show, Leah Sullivan needs to accomplish something in her life. But when she returns home to Lucky Harbor, she finds herself distracted by her best friend, Jack Harper. In an effort to cheer up Jack's ailing mother, Dee, Leah tells a little fib - that she and Jack are more than just friends. Soon pretending to be hot-and-heavy with this hunky firefighter feels too real to handle . . . 

No-strings attachments suit Jack just fine - perfect for keeping the risk of heartbreak away. But as Jack and Leah break every one of their "just friends" rules, he longs to turn their pretend relationship into something permanent. Do best friends know too much about each other to risk falling in love? Or will Jack and Leah discover something new about each other in a little town called Lucky Harbor?

My Review: (also in goodreads)

Lookback: Traeger Sisters: Simply Irresistible, The Sweetest Thing, Head Over Heels
               Chocoholics: Lucky in Love, At Last, Forever and A Day
               Short story (Traeger Sisters): Under the Mistletoe
               Downtown Business: It Had To Be You

This is the 2nd book of this trilogy and the 8th book of the Lucky Harbor series. This is about Leah, owner of the bakery in one of the three businesses at Mr. Lyon's building. She is one of the contenders of the reality show 'Sweet Wars' and is now temporarily residing back at Lucky Harbor with her grandmother. She then tells a lie to the ailing mother (battling breast cancer) of her best friend Jack, a firefighter, that they are together. She did this based on goodwill alone and obviously it would backfire on her...they had history and that big 'what-if' going on. Personally, this would be my favorite book so far in the 3rd trilogy. I have this unspoken love for stories about reunions, old friends who discover they are meant to be. It's amazing that way.

Till the next read...
