Megan Holloway can’t stand her local morning show co-host, Adam Warner, even though he’s a total hunk. He goads her on-air until she says things she regrets. But since ratings increase each time they have an on-air fight, the producer encourages his behavior.
When a relationship specialist comes onto the show purporting that Adam has hidden feelings for her, she reluctantly agrees to go out with him—on camera. What starts out as one date turns into a viral dating show with Megan and Adam alternating between locking lips and knocking heads.
As Megan fights her growing attraction to Adam, their popularity increases and ABC takes notice, offering them their own program. Not a morning show like Megan is hoping, but a dating show in which she and Adam must marry at the end. With the promise of a hundred thousand dollars and the possibility of scoring what she really wants, her own national program, she signs on.
What she doesn't know is that Adam has fallen in love with her, and his objective is to get her to do the same.

Megan Holloway hosts a morning show with a seemingly chauvinistic man Adam Warner. She can’t stand him. She is very surprised when one of their guests is a relationship consultant says he has hidden feelings for her. The ratings of the show go out the roof so the producer wants to do more with it and has the two start dating. It turns into a reality show. Is it really all for show?

In An Oyster Shell –  It was a charming, enjoyable, clean romance.

The Pearls –  The premise of this whole series is so addictive. Couple getting married for different reasons – unexpectedly. The premise of this book was cute and unique. A tv morning show turned reality dating show it was clever. It’s a very appropriate for today’s reality tv culture.

The characters were endearing. There was great development. The character development was imperative for this story to work.

The romance was sweet and enjoyable.

The Sands –  It was was good, read but not a literary masterpiece.

    This sounds like a cute summer read. I take it that Adam was a redeemable character in the end?
