Lizzie derives a plan for them to marry on a TV show and divorce after they make money from filming. To get back at Conroy, she set the location wedding in his home town of Mudbug, LA where his past demons are soon to be dug up.
I loved this book and readers will too. This not your average run-of-the-mill love story, but more like a romantic comedy with twists and turns along the way. I could see this book becoming a big screen hit at the box office. The characters are realistic, the situations are hilarious, and the banter between the leads is what makes this book a hit. The love that the characters find by putting their selves in these uncomfortable situations made me smile. The sex scenes were hot, but not too graphic. I would consider this book in the New Adult genre and not for young readers.
