My Rating: 4 Stars!

Book Description:
Every day after work, Haley goes to the bar across the street from her apartment to get a drink. It's the only time she gets to see Skylar, her bartender and crush. She would like to get to know him as more than a friend but she's afraid he won't be interested and she'll have to go elsewhere for her after work drink.

When Skylar asks Haley to pretend to be his girlfriend for a night, she is more than happy to oblige. She finally has the chance to make something happen without risking anything. But pretending proves to be more difficult than she thought. She's not sure she can resist the pull any longer with her feelings growing stronger, and it seems like Skylar is feeling the same way.

At the end of the night, will they be willing to turn a fake relationship into a real one?





If there is one thing I have come to expect from Jessica's writing it is that I just know I will get an incredibly sweet and endearing read whether that read is in novel form or a short story, it will be well written and lovable.

Even though this was a short story it was packed with a whole lot of punch. So much so that I fell in love with the characters and cared about them before I was even half way through the story. I was rooting for them the whole way through. 

Jessica managed to deliver so much in such a little story, this was well written, well executed and believe it or not, the perfect length.

  4. I read Jessica's first book and I thought the same thing about her writing. It is very sweet. This looks good, but I think I will wait for the first full length book in the series, or the second novella comes out and then read them together.

    Great review!
