Poppy Anderson was nailing her sophomore year at Brighton University. She liked her classes, had the greatest best friend, and was finally ready to start dating again. Or she was … until her ex, Mike, transferred to Brighton and started exchanging long stares and inside jokes that Poppy thought he’d forgotten.
Paxton Lawson was long ago labeled ‘The Golden Boy.’ Starting quarterback and team captain at Brighton University, his future was brighter than the sun until a short path of indiscretions tarnished his name and potentially his future. When he learns that his sister’s best friend, Poppy, has backed herself into a corner and is facing as many doubts and uncertainties as he is, Paxton suggests the biggest ruse of the year: a fake relationship.
Writing the rules was supposed to make things clear, defined, and definite. Only, their relationship becomes increasingly complex as the lines are blurred, days become weeks, and kisses for show begin to feel like confessions.
Can lies lead to truths? And what happens when the rules they wrote begin to expire?
And fifteen years of friendship are about to be put to the ultimate test.
This is the last book in The Dating Playbook series and can be enjoyed as a complete standalone.

Pax has a promising football career in his future if he can put an end to his self-destructive behavior off the field and that includes ending his relationship with his girlfriend. He can’t risk being distracted from football so a fake relationship with his sister’s best friend is a win-win for both of them.
Poppy is quiet and is more comfortable being on the sidelines rather than the main attraction. Now that her ex is back in her life she wants to show him that she has moved forward with her life and pretending to date the popular quarterback will make that happen. Their heads acknowledge that it is an agreement between them, nothing more and nothing less, but their hearts don’t seem to agree.
From the outside looking in Poppy and Pax appear to have nothing in common but they give each other exactly what they need and balance each other to perfection.
