Chase Knott feels like he’s always proving himself. He’s worked hard to stand out from his siblings, but having a twin means he’s always seen as “the other one.” There’s only one place he feels at home—the town diner.
Lauryn Todd has her hands full as diner manager. Every morning, she opens the diner to Chase’s smiling face. Lately, she’s found herself looking forward to their interactions. Like him, she always feels like nobody really sees her. So when he comes up with an idea to give everyone something to talk about, she can’t resist.
Pretending to date is fun at first, but over time, Chase and Lauryn start to enjoy it a little too much. Once his family finds out they’ve been deceiving them, though, he’s sure he’ll be right back where he started. When their ruse takes a bad turn, their newfound feelings are tested beyond what most new relationships could survive.
This is an adult romance that does not contain graphic violence, swearing, or sexual situations beyond kisses.
