#Book Review #Like You Love Me (Honey Creek#1) by Adriana Locke #Contemporary Romance @Montlake


Two childhood friends are playing house—and maybe playing for keeps—in this sexy, and unpredictable marriage-of-convenience romance.

To save her Tennessee bed-and-breakfast, Sophie Bates needs a fast-cash miracle. Holden McKenzie, her childhood best friend, needs to prove to a prospective employer that he’s a committed man. Their fortunes on the line, Holden proposes…a solution.

He’ll take care of Sophie’s bills if she agrees to a temporary marriage of convenience. And why not? They’re comfortable together, they have fun, and they trust each other. It’s as simple as saying “I do.” But the off-the-cuff wedding has all of Honey Creek talking—and Sophie and Holden realizing that their perfect arrangement is working too well. If they’re not careful, this marriage could turn into a love story.

My thoughts:
Like you love me has two things that make me swoon every time I come across them in a book- a small town setting with kind, supportive, quirky in their own way inhabitants, and my favourite trope- friends to lovers. There’s nothing more romantic than falling in love with the person you’ve known and respected for years….

Holden, a.k.a. Dr Holden, aka Dr McKenzie comes back to a small Tennessee town where his grandfather runs a veterenary practice. Holden has just lost both his dream job (through no fault of his own) and his fiancee. The problem is in his field employers would like a prospective candidate be serious and settled down. Holden with all his charm, an easy smile and a kind, sweet, and generous disposition cannot prove that he is dependable and trustworthy.

Sophie Bates is about to lose her beloved bed-and-breakfast…unless she comes up with a quick cash intervention. The business is a bit slow, so however hard she wracks her brains, she is no closer to finding a solution. Until Holden, her childhood friend, comes up with a perfect arrangement that will help them get weather their respective storms and get on their feet, ready to face life. A fake marriage. You can probably guess what is going to happen with these two charming newly weds. Yep, it’s obvious, they are bound to find out that they are perfect for each other.

I loved Adriana Locke’s writing style- it was so easy to fall into the story and keep turning pages on and on. You know what is going to happen and you are there for every minute of the characters’ journey to their happily-ever-after.
Can’t wait to read the next story in the series!
