Nearly Wild: Main Street Merchants Book 3 is by Linda Seed. This series is about four friends who all work on Main Street. They are always there for each other no matter what. Two of the four are now involved with a man. Kate is living with Jackson and talking of marriage while Gen is planning her wedding to Ryan. Lacy has said she is not interested in marriage but is dating. That leaves Rose who has just broken up with her last boyfriend.
Rose is jealous of Kate and Gen and yet happy for them. However, her latest boyfriend turned out to be another jerk. Why can’t she find someone like Jackson or Ryan? She decides to not date for a while. The length of time is not stated; but she thinks it will be a long time.
Will Bachman is a friend of Jackson’s who is working on his doctoral thesis, if he can get to it. He has plenty of research but hasn’t written it. He isn’t sure why he hasn’t started writing; but thinks it may be because he will have to do something else if he finishes and he likes his life right now. He had a terrible experience with his last girlfriend and is not looking for another one.
Will has a problem. His boss is coming to visit and is bringing his girlfriend. He asks Will to make sure the house and everything is ready. Since it is his job, Will agrees. Then he gets a phone call from Chris’s girlfriend. She is Melinda, his ex! She is just warning him that she is coming and hasn’t told Will about them. Chris calls again inviting Will and his girlfriend to dinner with himself and Melinda. Chris is backed into a corner- he has no girlfriend!
Needing to pick up some wine, he heads to De-Vine where Rose works. He talks to her and tells her of his delimma. She suggests he get a fake date. So, he asks Rose to fill in. Just how long will their fake dating last and will it work?
