The Heiress and Her Fake Fiancé by Kimberly Hope

Due to the very crafty, yet well-intentioned, machinations of her grandmother, Jessica Heymore and her former crush Matt Lawson are thrown together and both end up being roommates in the grandmother's house. Jessica needs a place to think and be by herself. After working hard and trying to make it on her own, she finds out that what was supposed to have been a legitimate promotion, turns out to have been some behind the scenes maneuvering by her powerful & wealthy father. What's worse is the part her fiancé played in the debacle. Matt Lawson owns a landscaping business and has been very successful outside his hometown and received acclaim but when it comes to his hometown - he feels that people still don't take him seriously as a businessman and only trust him to trim their lawns. Years ago, Jessica had a major crush on Matt and came on to him but he brushed her off. Now, years later, after being thrown together the sparks fly. I loved the chemistry between Jessica and Matt. I thought this was a fun, sweet, sexy story. I would look forward to reading a story about their best friends. The only thing that I didn't care for was how Matt kept calling her "squirt". I mean he's only about 2 years younger than her. Whenever he did that I just pictured a huge disparity in age.
