Review: Like You Love Me by Adriana Locke


(Honey Creek #1)

Adriana Locke


Two childhood friends are playing house—and maybe playing for keeps—in USA Today bestselling author Adriana Locke’s funny, sexy, and unpredictable marriage-of-convenience romance.

To save her Tennessee bed-and-breakfast, Sophie Bates needs a fast-cash miracle. Holden McKenzie, her childhood best friend, needs to prove to a prospective employer that he’s a committed man. Their fortunes on the line, Holden proposes…a solution.

He’ll take care of Sophie’s bills if she agrees to a temporary marriage of convenience. And why not? They’re comfortable together, they have fun, and they trust each other. It’s as simple as saying “I do.” But the off-the-cuff wedding has all of Honey Creek talking—and Sophie and Holden realizing that their perfect arrangement is working too well. If they’re not careful, this marriage could turn into a love story.


As children, Sophie & Holden became friends over the summers when Holden would come to visit his grandfather. Now, as adults, they haven’t seen each other for 10 years when Holden returns to help his grandfather with his vet clinic.

Holden was in between jobs when his grandfather asked for his help. At Holden’s last job the owner’s wife had the hots for him and when the owner found out he fired him. So, while he is waiting to hear about his dream job he applied for he agreed to help his grandfather out short termed.

Sophie’s grandmother left her bed and breakfast. Sophie’s love for the place shines through the pages.

Sophie and Holden first got married when they were children with a candy-pop ring. Now, in a roundabout way, their grandparents brought them together.

Knowing that Holden will be moving on to a new place if he gets his dream job these two are cautious about getting in a relationship with each other.
