This is the 3rd in Well Met Series. I love the Renaissance faire and I’m so glad to be back in this world.

In this book April who is a 40 something single mother with a 18 yo is about to start her life for herself. It’s hard to raise a child with a partner and do self-care or do things for yourself, I couldn’t imagine doing it alone.

The father is trying to get back in the picture for some reason, blergh he’s just useless.

The very popular Mitch asks April to be his pretend girlfriend for a family dinner. She agrees since he agreed to help renovate her home. And he helps support her when he biological father shows up.

But turns out the fake relationship turns into a hotel room with one bed. 

Mitch the consummate lady’s man turns out to be not quite what April thought.

April also thought she wanted to leave this small town and live in a big city but as she spent more time with Mitch she realized some things about herself. And the ren faire.

I love these love stories with the characters that are all popular in their place but when they go home or to see family they are possibly the black sheep or not even close to being popular. 

Such a cute love story and great addition to this series! 

Thank you berkleyromance and netgalley for the e-ARC for my honest and voluntary review.


Single mother April Parker has lived in Willow Creek for twelve years with a wall around her heart. On the verge of being an empty nester, she’s decided to move on from her quaint little town, and asks her friend Mitch for his help with some home improvement projects to get her house ready to sell.

Mitch Malone is known for being the life of every party, but mostly for the attire he wears to the local Renaissance Faire — a kilt (and not much else) that shows off his muscled form to perfection. While he agrees to help April, he needs a favor too: she’ll pretend to be his girlfriend at an upcoming family dinner, so that he can avoid the lectures about settling down and having a more “serious” career than high school coach and gym teacher. April reluctantly agrees, but when dinner turns into a weekend trip, it becomes hard to tell what’s real and what’s been just for show. But when the weekend ends, so must their fake relationship.

As summer begins, Faire returns to Willow Creek, and April volunteers for the first time. When Mitch’s family shows up unexpectedly, April pretends to be Mitch’s girlfriend again… something that doesn’t feel so fake anymore. Despite their obvious connection, April insists they’ve just been putting on an act. But when there’s the chance for something real, she has to decide whether to change her plans — and open her heart — for the kilt-wearing hunk who might just be the love of her life.

An accidentally in-love rom-com filled with Renaissance Faire flower crowns, kilts, corsets, and sword fights.
