Welcome to Valentine Bay!

Ella Fletcher spent all of high school in love with the boy next door--her best friend, Donovan. It was never more than that, but she fooled herself into believing friendship was enough.

Donovan Valentine knew he could never make a move on his best friend Ella. After all, she depended on him. He was the only stable man in her life. If denying his feelings was the price he had to pay for protecting hers, then he was more than willing to pay it.

Celebrating their high school graduation, they drunkenly took part in a marriage ceremony using fake IDs. But now, fifteen years later, it turns out that the IDs weren't so fake, and neither is the marriage.

When Donovan returns to Valentine Bay to straighten things out, will this accident turn into the best thing that ever happened to them?

*** Standalone romance with HEA and no cliffhanger ***

  • Highly Entertaining Romance!

    By Cali Jewel
    Sweetly thrilling, emotionally engaging and crazy fun second chance romance for two childhood friends that never intended to follow through on their undeniable attraction. Best friends Ella and Donovan did not expect a high school graduations celebration in Los Vegas complete with fake ID's and a chapel marriage to leave a lasting consequence. However the marriage turns out to be just as real as the next day hangover only longer lasting..... Having to confront the past to fix his job Donovan is forced to return home and the results are not what he expected. Loved every heart pounding and exciting twist in the fun romantic journey.
  • Fantastic read!!!

    I loved this first book in this new series by Melanie Shawn!! Ella and Donovan were sexy, fun, and a cute couple!! They both faced issues from their past, and my heart broke for Donovan as he faced some of his. I enjoyed meeting a new plethora of Melanie Shawn characters, and loved 99% of them (Sorry Vicki... you drove me insane!! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚). I can’t wait to see what the girls have in store for us in the next Valentine Bay book! I would definitely recommend this book!!
