Some secrets are too heavy to hold on to forever. 
For Ethan, pretending has become second nature. After all, he’s spent the last decade pretending to be straight, pretending to be happy, and pretending he isn’t desperately in love with his best friend. But in a single moment of raw honesty, all those lies come crashing down around him and he’s left wondering what to do next. 
When Jase learns his best friend is going through a breakup, his first instinct is to come to Ethan’s rescue, and he knows just the thing to help. The cabin where they spent summers as kids is sitting vacant, and a week there is the perfect remedy to start healing a broken heart. 
In the seclusion of the mountains, long-buried fears and emotions take their friendship into unexplored territory that will either bring them closer together… or tear everything apart.

Nobody says no to a Prescott. Not even one of their own.
Living up to expectations had never been easy, but when I went after something, I got it. Success. Money. Victory. I was standing on the doorstep to having it all. There was only one thing standing in my way.
Power and prosperity are overrated. Especially when they come at a price. When enough became enough, I walked away. Nothing had ever tempted me to look back, until one day the past showed up in my backyard.
I’m not so sure I can walk away a second time.

~Review~ Married for a Month by Cate Ashwood~




Married for a Month by Cate Ashwood

****4 Stars****

I was a bit worried when I read the blurb.  Fake marriages are not really my thing, but once I started reading, I found myself completely sucked into this sweet “best friends to lovers” story.

It also helps that these men, don’t actually marry.

fake+it+till+you+make+it.gif (500×375):

Chase and Alec have been best friends for a very long time. Chase is known as being quite the player among his friends. Chase isn’t ready to settle down into some relationship. He thinks, that once people settle down or get married, everything will go to shit and life will be boring and sex will be non-excistent.

So he sticks to hook-ups.

That is until his friends bet him that he couldn’t stay married for a month, even if he wanted to. According to them, marriage is hard work, and Chase is not cut out for this. Chase, of course, can’t resist proving them wrong. And who would be a better candidate in this “fake” marriage, than his best friend Alec.

So he “fake” proposes right then and there.

Their friends have a little wedding ceremony for them.

The rules are: they have to live together for a month, sleep in the same bed, eat together and go on a date once a week. Sounds easy enough….what could possibly go wrong ??

Both men are lusting for one another, and why not just give in right…it’s just sex…

Hot sex, but still just friends having sex….

Until it’s not…..

I really enjoyed this story. It was sweet, hot, funny at times and there wasn’t any angst….

Just two best friends falling in love with each other.

You would think, that with me being such an angst junkie, I would be bored, but I wasn’t…not at all. It was exactly what I needed right now. I will

I will definitely look into more books by this author.  🙂
