Deking The Beauty by Crystal Perkins is now live!
From author Crystal Perkins comes an all new fake relationship, older brother’s best friend romance set in her Metros Hockey Series.
I’m the”beauty” of the Seattle Metros. The nice guy who always has a smile for the media and the fans. Until I have an “off day” at an event. Coupled with some on ice accidents, I go from fan favorite to pariah. To help my image, it’s suggested I tone down my playboy ways and at least pretend to be in a serious relationship. Even if that fake relationship is with my best friend’s little sister.
I’ve been in love with Santo since he was the boy next door when we were growing up. He’s never seen me as more than his best friend’s little sister, but now he needs my help. Being his girlfriend is all I’ve ever wanted, so a few months with him is like a dream come true. But, the dream turns into a nightmare when things become real between us, and he walks away.
With more than just the two of them to consider, can the Saint overcome his fears about relationships? And can Nita trust him to stay when she needs him the most?
The position that Santo is in isn’t one he is used to where he has drawn the ire of the fans who support him and the Seattle Metros team. He needs to make some changes so that he is more relatable and that starts with appearing to be in a committed relationship. The only problem is he doesn’t have anyone in his life so that means recruiting Nita for the position.
Nita has had feelings for her brother’s best friend since she was a teenager so although this may start out as make believe there is nothing she would like more than to make it permanent. As they spend time together the chemistry between them ignites but will it be enough for Santo to overcome the pain of his past so that they can have a future together?
Santo’s past has made him cautious and while Nita understands she shows that history doesn’t have to repeat itself and that love can be the greatest gift of all.
