Her name is Erickson and her parents own The Bagel Place.
It wasn’t always that way. When we were nine, we were best friends. But then a feud between our dads ripped their successful business apart—and my best friend was ripped away too.
Our paths were bound to cross again. When both our families vie for the same spot on a Food Channel’s reality show, the producers decide to change the format, aligning us as allies.
In order to get our parents to agree to work together, Evan asks me to pretend to be her boyfriend, but I dare her to up the ante—be my fiancée. Fake fiancée… obviously.
As usual, I didn’t think things through. Turns out our parents have a lot of demands neither one of us expected. And all those demands lead to things feeling more real than fake.

~⭐~ Michelle’s Review ~⭐~Our Star-Crossed Kiss by Piper Rayne
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Fun and sexy
I always get a kick out of these two ladies stories. They add lots of laughs and are never boring. In this we get two childhood friends who’s parents have s falling out so that pretty much ends their friendship.
Fast forward twenty years later and they come together for the greater good. Evan and Seth are great characters and the enemies to friends sage turns the heat up on these two. What starts off as helping each other out turns to developing feelings for the other. It’s cut, funny and flaming hot. I so enjoyed this incredible read and highly recommend it.

“No man is ever going to be good enough for my little girl,” he whispered huskily. “But Travis is pretty damn close.”
I laughed lightly and rolled my eyes to the ceiling to ward off the waterworks. With a soft kiss to my cheek, my father released my hands and moved to my side. Looping my arm through his, I used the other hand to pick up my dress, so it didn’t drag as we walked down the stairs. With a nod of satisfaction that everyone was ready, my mother ushered the girls out with the exception of Anna and led the way down the hall. My father and I followed with my cousin on my heels, making sure the train on the dress stayed off the floor.
My face hurt; my smile was so broad. Everyone around me was as well, and I felt like I was floating on a cloud. We reached the stairs, and I kept my eyes on my feet, so I didn’t trip, allowing my father to lead me. When I reached the bottom, I looked up and found Max, the best man, waiting at the back door with a look on his face that I couldn’t identify. Confusion and concern rolled through me since he should have been at the altar with Travis.
“I’m sorry, Kat,” he apologized, cutting my question off.
“Sorry for what?”
My stomach rolled with nausea.
“We can’t find Travis.”
“What do you mean you can’t find him?” I asked, shaking my head.
I felt Anna come to my side and felt her hands grip my elbow while my mother moved to my father’s other side. A united front as we’d been my entire life. It brought little comfort, especially when the next words came out of his mouth.
“He packed a bag and took off,” he explained, tugging gently on his tie. “He won’t answer his phone.”
“His parents?” I choked out.
“His mother left last night, and his father is here, but severely hungover. He doesn’t know where he is either.”
My knees threatened to buckle. This was a mistake. Something must have come up at the office, and he ran late coming back. He would be here. He had to be here. We were getting married.
“This was with my tux.”
The envelope, marked with the bed and breakfast logo, had my name on the front in his clear, concise handwriting. I didn’t fight the tears, I let them flow down my cheeks as I took it from him with a shaky hand. Without letting go of my father, I opened it and pulled out the small piece of paper.
I can’t go through with this. I’m sorry.

“I feel this is probably this authors best series so far.” – Goodreads Review
“What a ride!! L. Wilder has done it again with Shotgun and Remington’s story.” – Goodreads Review
~~ Michelle’s Review ~~Holding On by L. Wilder
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I love this author’s stories. She has a way of pulling you in and keeping you engaged in all the way through. Remington and Noah (Shotgun) are fantastic characters and together they burn the pages.
He has a heartbreaking past and she’s a spitfire and exactly what he needs. Their story is full of excitement, great energy and their sheets are on fire. At one point I was so engrossed in the story I just couldn’t put it down. I highly recommend this amazing read and can’t wait for more from this wonderful series.
