About THE REAL DEAL:
Sophie Kinsella meets Jennifer Crusie in your next favorite
romantic comedy, THE REAL DEAL!
April Hamilton wants you to know she hasn’t been on Craigslist since that
time she sold her futon after college. She doesn’t even spend that much time online. And
even if she did, she would not be looking up personal ads. But going home alone for her family’s summer
reunion is an invitation for every single relative to butt into her personal life. She simply can’t handle
another blind date with the butcher, the baker or the candlestick maker from her hometown. So when
she finds the Craigslist ad for a boyfriend-for- hire, she’s ready to pay to play.
Heading Home and Need a Buffer? I’m the REAL
Theo Banks has been running from the past for years. He’s this
close to finally settling all his debts, and one more job as a boyfriend-for- hire will do the trick.
He’s no gigolo. Please. He’s something of an actor, and he knows how to slip into any role,
including pretending to be April’s new beau — the bad boy with the heart of gold.
Even if it means sleeping in close quarters in that tiny little bed in her
parents’ inn. Even if it means spinning tales of a romance that starts to feel all too true. What neither
one of them counts on is that amid the egg toss, the arm wrestling, and a fierce game of Lawn Twister
that has them tangled up together, they might be feeling the real deal.
She only wanted to show her family once and for all that she had no
need to settle down.
He didn’t expect to have the time of his life at her parent’s home.
They didn’t plan on loving every single second of the game.
But can a masterful game of pretend result in true love?
