Tuesday Teaser & Intro: One True Pairing


Synopsis ~ One True Pairing

They couldn’t be more opposite, the Hollywood actor and the hometown girl, but all they need is a little convention magic to become the perfect ship.

Jake Reese needs a decoy girlfriend. Fast. The lead actor of the popular TV show, Mystics, is tired of losing his shirt to overeager fans. Literally. Which is why a chance meeting with gothabilly bookworm-slash-barista Hailey Frost seems almost too perfect to be true. Hailey is not impressed with his TV fame and is desperate to save her family’s bookstore. It’s a match made in Hollywood, but as the two pretend to date, fan fiction becomes reality. Can this OTP become canon?

The door opened quickly, and she glanced up, ready to tease Stan for his burger habit. But it wasn’t Stan. It was a gorgeous, dark-haired guy, with a strong jaw and a leather jacket.

“Hide me,” the guy said, in a breathless, raspy tone.

“Excuse me?”

Before she could say anything else, he glanced behind him, then – unbelievably – he dashed behind the counter, hiding on the floor.

“Hey!” she yelped.

He held a finger to his lips, then pointed at the door.
