Megan Holloway can’t stand her local morning show co-host, Adam Warner, even though he’s a total hunk. He goads her on-air until she says things she regrets. But since ratings increase each time they have an on-air fight, the producer encourages his behavior.

When a relationship specialist comes onto the show purporting that Adam has hidden feelings for her, she reluctantly agrees to go out with him—on camera. What starts out as one date turns into a viral dating show with Megan and Adam alternating between locking lips and knocking heads.

As Megan fights her growing attraction to Adam, their popularity increases and ABC takes notice, offering them their own program. Not a morning show like Megan is hoping, but a dating show in which she and Adam must marry at the end. With the promise of a hundred thousand dollars and the possibility of scoring what she really wants, her own national program, she signs on.

What she doesn't know is that Adam has fallen in love with her, and his objective is to get her to do the same.

I primarily requested this because I'd read one of her other books; Accidentally Married, last year and I absolutely loved it! I picked this up on a whim on Valentines Day and it was perfect!
I began reading this and suddenly I'd read the majority of the book! The plot is intriguing, the characters are charming and funny and I just kept wanting to know what would happen next.

The characters are not just charming and funny though, they also have some depth - both of them have issues, both have had a rough time growing up and both are quite insecure and not quite ready to face facts. I loved reading about Megan and Adam and I loved their conversations! You never know where it's headed - whether it's going to be funny, serious, charming or just nostalgia. I really enjoyed the two of them together! Their relationship also, very quickly actually, take a turn for the better and seeing them getting to know each other better and Megan starting to warm up to the two of them together is worth definitely worth it!

I have to be honest, I didn't really know what this was about when I started reading.. So going into this blindsided was not a bad call! I loved that I knew nothing about what was going to happen but I quickly discovered the overall plot. Even though you know where the story is headed you still keep reading because of Megan and Adam. So the plot is not what's important here - for me it is definitely the characters.

Victorine E. Lieske definitely knows how to write a swoon worthy romance! It's fluffy, it's fun, it's quirky and I loved every bit! I am definitely going to read all of her books know - to 5 stars in a row can't be a coincidence. So if you're in the mood for a romance that will make your cheeks hurt from smiling choose either this one or Accidentally Married - I highly recommend both!
