The Marriage Mistake

What happens when two best friends become bride and groom?


Darcy Ryan is starting to wonder if she’s a magnet for the wrong kind of luck. No matter how many times she dates, it always ends up in disaster. To make matters worse, her family’s constant judgment on the state of her life — and her career — is pushing her to the breaking point.

Her best friend Lucas Vaughn is not interested in a relationship. He’s seen how things can end and isn’t about to open himself up to the kind of hurt that comes when the person you love leaves you. But hanging on to his single status is holding him back in more ways than one.

Then they stumble on the perfect solution. They already live together, so why not just get married for six months? It’ll get everyone off their backs, help their careers, and give them a break from the singles scene. Everybody wins.

Their plan seems flawless, but the one thing they don’t plan for? 

Falling in love.
