Publisher's summary

Love enters the chat in this hilarious, heartfelt rom-com by Audie Award-winning, New York Times best-selling author Kylie Scott!

Romance author Riley Cooper always dreamed of living by the water. But within a day of landing in the charming seaside town of Port Stewart to work on her latest book, she's getting calls and texts for some dude on her new number. Weird ones. Sad ones. Sexy ones. Ones that make her want to meet him. For curiosity's sake...if nothing else.

After years of being on-again, off-again with his high school sweetheart, all Connor wants is to move on with his life. If only everyone in Port Stewart would let him. What he needs is to be seen with someone else. So when fate puts him in the path of the new girl in town who got his old number, faking it together seems like the perfect solution.

Spending time with the gorgeous former prom king might be great research for Riley’s romance writing...if only she can keep her feelings in check. But the more she gets to know him, the harder she’s falling. Can their serendipitous meeting turn into something real and true?

Wow

This is a great story I loved it. It’s kind of one of those things where I never expected it. It’s so sweet, and extremely extremely funny. Probably not a good idea to read it at night because the funny stuff in here. Well make you laugh out loud might wake up the neighbors lol

So good

I love everything this author writes and she couldn’t have chosen a better narrator. This couple met in a totally odd way that really worked. I will listen over and over again

I've yet to read a book that I don't love

what can I say about this author and this narrator. the books never fail to be enjoyable I love listening to them they're funny. I mean they're always predictable. but when I'm not looking for a heavy duty dark romance these books always hit the spot

Another Great Story

Refreshing plot. It’s got everything you want in a story. Love, laughs, small town up in your business. Hits all the marks from start to finish. I’m really hoping this will become a series because a few of these characters deserve their own story. If not, all good because it is a strong stand alone. Being my first audiobook ever I really enjoyed the flow that Andi Arndt produced. I can see the hook of audiobooks. A+++ as always Kylie Scott

Cute love story

Made a good switch between my psychological thrillers, and the characters were super sweet, and you felt like you were part of their family

Kylie Scott Does it Again!

Loved Loved Loved This Book - Fake Dating, he's grumpy, she's...well, not quite sunshine but definitely quirky. Small coastal town, small town issues. And the ex is back in town to make him miserable and stir the pot!

Andi Ardnt is a favorite narrator and her mixed with Kylie's stories is always the best treat.

Get your chowder, bread and your cheese treats and get cozy with this book 😋

worth it!

perfect amount of romance sexual tension. not to mention the heroine actually stood up for herself in the end which I appreciate, we don't lay down for men (or people) who don't fight for us!
