From award-winning author LJ Evans comes a simmering, fake-relationship romance between a protective, military man and a comic-loving, book store clerk with an entire town against her…

“You don’t have to fight the world alone. You’ve got me.”

Travis Dayton, a.k.a. Truck, is focused on two things: excelling in his position at the Coast Guard and keeping his younger brother out of trouble. So even though the beautiful and ethereal Jersey Banner is tugging at his heartstrings, he refuses to get sidetracked.

Jersey has been struggling to keep her family afloat ever since their dad went to jail. This means the pain she feels on a regular basis isn’t anything she can stop to think about. Not even when she ends up at the emergency room in the arms of the one man who makes her pulse beat faster than the superheroes she worships.

When Jersey finds herself in desperate need of medical care she can’t afford, Truck does the only thing he can… he marries her.

As hearts and lives begin to twine, their temporary deal starts to crumble until there’s little chance of escape without permanent damage. Not unless they just surrender to it all and let love heal them both.

Inspired by Lady A’s “Ocean” this small-town, slow-burn romance is full of vibrant characters, emotional journeys, and happiness you’ll feel in your bones, proving that love truly is the only real superpower.

Also available in The Anchor Novels: The Military Brothers box set with an exclusive novella.

Behind the book

This story took a turn just as I was beginning it that I hadn't expected. I want my characters to come across as people you might know in your life. So, I never thought I'd write about a fake marriage because it doesn't seem like a real world occurrence. Then Jersey happened... And our struggle with healthcare as a nation, and it just sort of wrote itself. I hope you love and adore Truck and Jersey's HEA, but I also hope you feel like it could happen to the woman next door to you. Your friend. Your sister. Your colleagues. 

This book was therapy for me. While my health struggles are not exactly Jersey's and Jersey's are not exactly mine, they are twined together. To any woman, young or old, that is out their fighting with pelvic pain on a monthly, weekly, or daily basis, I want to say, IT IS NOT NORMAL. You should not be debilitated, even on a monthly basis, by your normal cycle. Get help!  

As always, thank you for choosing to spend some time with one of my book babies. I truly appreciate every single person who picks up my words and reads them.  XO LJ
