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.


~ 5 Star Read ~

How could this happen? How can Holden be my new #1? I flippin’ love him. I love the background story with Sophie and Holden. And even though these two enter into an agreement, it was a seal in their fate. I just felt that through this story, it was like coming home for Holden. There was a bit of push and pull, but when these two were together, the world just seemed a little bit brighter.

Like You Love Me is GOLD! Holden is my new favorite Locke guy and Sophia makes me want to have new B&B goals. The old and the new clash together, but this story puts a spotlight on following the sun. Paps was a wise soul. There were many characters that I came to love and this story brings you all the feels that only a small town can give you. Like You Love Me deserves all the stars a review can give. I cannot wait to see what Adriana has next for this series!! Could it be Liv’s story next with her new mysterious boss? Or will it be about Jobe’s long lost love come back? I need more here lol … 100 times the stars for this review ❤


“I’m sure it’ll be okay,” I offer.

“Will it, though? Or will they look at me and be, like, ‘Hey, this guy was doing great but lost his job and fiancée in the course of a month. He’s probably going through something that we don’t want to be a part of.”

“Well . . . that does sound bad when you put it like that.”

We both laugh, the sound of our voices mixing together over our fish.

“I’ll give you a reference,” I joke. “I’m a great personal-reference giver. I gave one to Debbie’s sister, Donna, and she got a job at the bank. Probably because of me.”

“Oh, I’m sure it was because of you. Absolutely.”

“Whatever. It probably was. I come across as genuine and a really salt-of-the-earth kind of person,” I say, popping a fry into my mouth. “Besides, we’ve basically been engaged since you asked me to marry you with a giant candy ring.”

He laughs. “I might need you to be my fiancée for a while longer. To convince Montgomery I’m a good guy and that he should hire me.”

“I’d have him eating out of the palm of my hand.” I wink. “You’d probably be vice president of the company before it was over.”

Holden takes a bite of his sandwich and watches me over the top of it. There’s something about the way he looks at me with a twinkle in his eye that makes me squirm.

In a good way.

I think.
