Every Denver Edge fan thinks they know the secret behind my goal-scoring streak. The truth is, it’s not the pre-game toffee coffee from the Bevvie Bar that brings me luck—it’s Penny, the shy harp-playing barista who makes it for me.

But my winning streak is threatened when I learn that the coffee shop may be closing and I could lose her forever. On top of that, I’m hit with the news that if I don’t get married, I’ll lose my inheritance.

Can my favorite barista whip up an inheritance-saving recipe before time runs out?

Time isn’t on my side. With the deadline looming, I’ll have to skate fast to earn her affection, and if I mess up, I could lose everything—my inheritance, my career, and most of all, my heart.

In the spotlight of fame, can a fake romance ignite a real love?
Lily Morgan is more than just a skilled librarian, she’s a small-town girl with big dreams. Just when she thinks her ambition of becoming a novelist is out of reach, Reed sweeps into town—a charismatic yet troubled Hollywood actor on the brink of obscurity.

Zane, in the aftermath of a tumultuous, highly publicized breakup and a disappointing box-office fiasco, finds his career is on the brink of collapse. His only chance at a comeback? Zane’s publicist proposes a daring plan: a secret contract to pretend to be engaged to Lily, saving his reputation and reviving his faltering fame.

Yet amid the fake smiles and rehearsed affection, Lily and Zane start to feel a genuine affection and passionate desire that goes beyond pretense.

But as their relationship faces the relentless spotlight of public scrutiny, their own insecurities, and the complexities of the deception, they must confront the ultimate question— Can they risk it all for a love that feels too real to be fake?
