*Release Blitz/Review* Like You Love Me by Adriana Locke

Two childhood friends are playing house—and maybe playing for keeps—in USA Todaybestselling author Adriana Locke’s funny, 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.


“You know what you need?” Holden asks.

“Yes,” I say quickly. “A knight in shining armor with five grand. Do you know what you need?”

He opens his mouth but snaps it shut. Slowly, his eyes widen to the size of dinner plates. A smile that doesn’t instill confidence in me spreads across his cheeks too. “Actually, I do. I need . . . a wife.”

Like You Love Me is the beginning of a new series for Adriana Locke, but ties in some characters from other worlds that we know and love!
If you’ve read a lot of Adriana’s work, you know that she usually has some level of angst (Written in the Scars and Sacrifice…) but also levity (Coach Cane Alexander in the Exception). This book is definitely a little bit more on the sweeter end of the scale with a little less angst than usual.
Holden needed a place to hide out while waiting to find out if he’s getting the job of his dreams and his grandfather needed some time away from his veterinary practice. Win – win. What he wasn’t planning on was seeing the girl he spent his summers playing with to be all grown up.
Sophie is living her dream – well sort of. She is running her grandmother’s B & B but with very little funding thanks to her ex husband. She needs a miracle. Or a knight in shining armor.
What starts as a marriage of convenience quickly becomes more to each of them, but will Sophie and Holden see what everyone around them does before it’s too late?
