“A true modern take on the marriage of convenience! Some of the wittiest characters I’ve had the pleasure to meet in a long time!” The Literary Times
Clay Granger, a billionaire extreme sports star, thrives on taking risks and pursuing thrills. When his friend Izzy Fabrioni finds herself pregnant, alone, and broke, Clay proposes an arranged marriage that should solve all her problems while making his own life a bit more bearable. As one of the most eligible bachelors in the world, he's found himself hounded by matchmakers and gold-diggers. A wife—in name only, of course—should be just the ticket to get them off his back.
Wary but desperate, Izzy agrees to the insane plan. It's just another escapade for Clay… until he discovers that sharing his life—and bed—with sweet, sexy Izzy makes the “in name only” part of the deal a whole lot harder than he had anticipated.

The agony of staying in the past rather than growing together was long in coming, as Izzy is stuck on having only a friendship relationship.
Book 2 of the North Moon Bay Series... I do not believe I have read any of Ms. Ryans books before but I will be looking for more after reading the three excellent books in this series... Beautiful stories, each so different... Wonderful characters and storylines that are totally original... Wonderful reading, I did not want to put them down and I did not want them to end... Book 1 is The Black Sheep, Tucker and Haley's Story... Book 3 is My Best Friend's Girl, Dean and Laura's Story... I can't tell which one I liked best because all were terrific... Recommend Highly!!!
Sweet story. Enjoy! CB
