Sometimes, blackmail is the only weapon a girl has...
Haley Patterson has had a crush on golden boy Bryce Colton for ages. But when she hears a rumor that he hooked up with her she gives him a choice: be her boyfriend for a month to show other guys that she's dateable—despite her overprotective and very intimidating brothers—or deal with the angry, cage-fighting boyfriend of the girl he actually did hook up with.
Bryce didn't know the other Haley even had a boyfriend. He was just trying to get his ex off his back. And now, not only is he being blackmailed, he's being blackmailed by an honor student. His new "girlfriend" has two three-legged dogs, her father mows grass at the country club, and she's...well, difficult. And different.
Can something so fake turn into something real?
I honestly found this book to be so great! I loved the relationship between Bryce and Haley. Haley was just so down to earth while Bryce was very much into his money and his belief that money brings happiness, since that’s the way he was raised with his parents. He’s pretty positive that his father only married his mother because her family was so wealthy. Haley definitely cracked him down and made him realize that there’s more to life than money. She even brings him to the local shelter where she volunteers all the time. She even has some animals from there at her house.
The side characters were wonderful too. I loved Jane and Nathan. Jane was a pretty funny best friend and I did like that she was always there for Haley. Her little infatuation with Nathan at the beginning was funny too. Nathan is Bryce’s best friend, who owns the country club that Haley’s father always goes to in order to mow the lawn. It’s just so wonderful that they all ended up becoming friends.
