A marriage of insanity...
Aria March and Nash Geary's first summer fling ended badly, very badly, and they haven't spoken a civil word to each other since they were teens.
Twelve years later, Aria is back in Summerville, fighting for custody of her little girl, and it sure wouldn't hurt her case to be in a committed relationship. Fresh from a nasty breakup, Nash will do anything to one-up Rachael, the woman who broke his heart a few months ago, even agree to a marriage of inconvenience to Aria March.
But all too soon the line between reality and fantasy begins to blur, and Nash and Aria find there are better things than revenge. There is forgiveness, and sexy second chances with the one who got away.

Sexy, Sweet Second Chance Romance (5 stars)
Man, I am a sucker for a reunion romance. You know the one... where the hero and heroine were once together and something drove them apart only to have them get back together years later. This was actually my first Jessie Evans book and holy smokes did it blow me away!
Aria and Nash are from two very different worlds and their marriage of convenience seems like the perfect solution to their respective troubles. He's fresh from an ugly break-up and she's in a custody battle that could use a dose of stable household. Neither wants to be dishonest with the people they love but if they want to pull this deception off they're going to have to come to terms with their shattered relationship as teenagers... and deal with their families.
Admittedly, my blurby thoughts on this one aren't so hot but who needs me to rehash it with a good blurb already in place? I was so swept up in this story I was quickly adding Evans' entire backlist to my wishlist, she has a terrific voice as a writer. It's sweet and sassy, a little askew from the usual, and she can keep it sexy in the smoldering slow-burn kinda way that makes it hard to put a book down. Nash is just alpha enough that he'll please readers who like them and gentleman enough to make the rest of us swoon. Aria is determined and capable and I really liked her.
I actually listened to this on audio and I liked it so much I went and bought the first book too. I will definitely be recommending this series to all of my contemporary romance reading friends who like witty humor and second chances.
