The last thing Jenna Davis wants right now is more drama. Still reeling from the untimely loss of one of her four closest friends, she intends to bury herself in work and forget the hurt. But when her other friends announce they’re planning an extended stay on the island, Jenna needs to come up with a plan–and fast–to cover up the little white lie she’s been telling them.
Zach Taylor is dealing with a mess of his own. A sinkhole in front of his shop is keeping customers away and putting his livelihood in jeopardy. So when his best friend’s older sister—the one he’s been secretly crushing on since the day they met—offers to loan Zach some shop space if he’ll do her favor, he’s all ears. The request? Pretend to be her boyfriend until her friends head back home.
The stage is set, the charade about to begin. Can these two long time friends keep things purely platonic while they fool the others? Or will Zach and Jenna stop fooling themselves and finally let love in?

Excerpt from Love at the Beach Shop:
Zach inspected her work then gave a nod of approval.
“Thanks for patching me up, babe.” He pulled her close with his good arm and pressed a kiss to her forehead. “Hopefully, that’ll be the worst of my injuries for today.”
Jenna stood rooted to the floor as Zach stepped from the bathroom, retrieved his box, and strode whistling from the room.
He kissed me. Zachary Taylor just kissed me.
Ivy coughed again. Only this time, the sound did little to cover the laughter bubbling behind it. “Just pretending, huh?”
“It’s all an act, remember? He was just…practicing.”
Though, if that was what it was going to be like all evening, Jenna would never be able to stay focused, much less fool her friends. She needed to fix this kissy stuff now, before it ruined everything. Ivy’s reflection joined hers in the mirror, her eyes bright with amusement.
“Oh, he’s a good actor, mi amiga. Very, very good.”
