Publisher's Summary

Megan Phenix - bar and grill owner in gay-friendly Eureka Springs - is labeled as "playing hard to get" and finds herself the object of much unwanted attention. If only she were seeing someone...maybe the women would leave her in peace.
Leah Rollins thinks 50 is too young to retire, so instead she opens a store in the touristy shopping district of Eureka Springs, next to the popular Phenix Grill. She soon learns that Megan Phenix is a bit on the grumpy side as they spar over parking spaces and anything else they can find to argue about. When Leah catches the attention of the multitude of single lesbians in town, she searches for a way out. Could the grumpy grill owner next door be the answer to her problems?
Megan and Leah strike an unlikely alliance and conspire to rid themselves of the unwanted attention by fake dating. Can they pull it off?
As they pretend to date and convince everyone in town that they really are a couple, the pretense becomes harder to hold on to. But there's just one problem...they don't really like each other.
Or do they?

Mixed feelings.

I love Gerri Hill's books. I love Nicol Zanzarella's narrations. That being said, I almost didn't finish listening to this book. I do not agree that harassing someone on social media is "just for fun." I was shocked when Megan's sister and friends did not stand up for her. Bullying is not acceptable. I couldn't get past this aspect of the book.

uncomfortable, shocking, disappointing

Nicole Z. awesome narration as always. That's the last good thing I have to say about this book. there was a quirky sweet little love story but I had trouble getting past the premise for the two women getting together. I don't see anything funny about sexual assault and cyberbullying. It's assault if the woman is too drunk to say yes. And who's sister would leave her there? And not feel sorry later? Imagine the destruction if the bully had been a man or these women were 20 years younger. Shameful message that it's all in good fun and be a good sport. That's BS. I wanted to put down the book but I hung on hoping for justice. You don't have to look at the news very long to see that this scenario is not funny. Hard to believe this is the same woman who wrote Pelican's Landing.
