Freshly sprung from the Marines, Griffin Powell is looking for some fun. Las Vegas offers the perfect playground to blow off some steam before getting to the serious work of deciding what to do with his life. He never expects that fun to include the high school crush who tutored him years ago.
Samantha Ferguson arrives in Vegas for a friend’s wedding only to get dumped by text. Desperate not to be the only single in a sea of couples, she makes an impulsive offer to the former bad boy she used to tutor in high school: Be her fake boyfriend for the weekend.
Griff knows he’s not the guy for Sam, but he can’t resist saying yes for the chance to get to know this grown-up version of the girl who once starred in all his dreams. Turns out, there’s not a lot of faking it involved. Between the single bed and the endless couples activities, new feelings flare from the old, until they both fall under the spell of Sin City.
Will what happens in Vegas stay in Vegas? Or will one impulsive weekend be the start of a brand new forever?
*NOTE TO READERS: This is a prequel novella and does not end with a HEA or HFN. Their story continues in COME A LITTLE CLOSER.
This was such a fun novella, featuring Griffin and Samantha. Everything from their surprise airport reunion to the fake boyfriend scheme for the weekend was fun and, yeah, a bit sweet. I loved being along as they sifted through old high school memories and realized that their adolescent feelings were mutual. The end was kind of gutting and I am totally looking forward to (hopefully) going along as Samantha makes Griffin work for it if he wants her back.
