Lavender Shores #4
Lamont Price’s romance novels have been a hit for the past few years. With his gorgeous looks, kind heart, and tender disposition, Lamont is the darling of Lavender Shores. He’s the guy everyone wants to be their best friend, the guy everyone wants to protect. But even with his success and the love of his family, Lamont feels hidden from those around him. Maybe the first step is attending a writing conference and revealing the man behind his pen name....
Tyler Dixon survives off his beauty and charm. From cover model to runway fashion to weekend arm candy, Tyler’s prices aren’t cheap. While his appearance is taking him places, his life as an artist has little more than flatlined. When an author hires him to appear as the face of her brand, Tyler thinks it’s just one more job. Little does he know another writer is going to steal all of his attention.
Escaping the conference to find some breathing room, Lamont runs into Tyler at a bar. Casual conversation leads to Lamont revealing his family’s obsession with helping him find love. It’s not a big deal to Tyler, who has played the role of boyfriend for other people in the past. Before either of them can rethink the situation, Tyler is in Lavender Shores meeting Lamont’s family. Though they’re only pretending to be in a relationship, the chemistry that ignites between them is anything but imaginary…
This was my favorite of the series....so far! I am a huge fan of the fake relationship trope.
If ever a person needed someone to hug them and tell them they are good enough, it's Lamont Price. For someone to seem so very together and confidant he was consumed with inner demons. Lamont could have very easily become the "woe is me" character, but the author made him so real that you can't help but fall in love with him.
Tyler was such an interesting character, I don't know that I have read about someone in his profession who really had no guilt about what he did. It was very refreshing to read about a porn actor who was very comfortable doing his job.I was also a big fan of his family dynamic and can't wait to read about the Dixon, Kelly/Bryant clan getting together for holidays.
Speaking of the Kelly clan, Robert plays a bigger role in this book than the last few, but I seriously fell in love with Debbra. That ice cream scene was perfection!
The scenery is almost a third leading character in this story, more so than even the first book for me. I could almost see the photographs in my mind as I was reading about them. If only a place like Lavender Shores really existed....what a wonderful place it would be.
