Good things come in extra-large, smoking hot packages.
Things like pizza.
The very pizzas that I deliver for my dad’s restaurant, Peretti’s Pizza. It’s a temporary job, something to pay the bills until I graduate from school, but it does the trick. In fact, it's working quite well until Ryan Pierce of the LA Lightning decides to order a pizza from me, and life as I know it turns upside down.
You see, Ryan Pierce doesn’t just open his front door. He opens it buck naked. And suddenly, I’m not the one boasting the biggest, hottest package in the room. However, it’s what happens next that makes my stomach flip upside down whenever my phone beeps. Ryan starts to call, and then text, and then fifteen pizza deliveries and one hot-as-sin kiss later, we’re friends with benefits.
So when he asks me to be his fake girlfriend at his brother’s wedding, I’m happy to help. But the longer we pretend, the more I worry that this is one package I might not be able to handle.

What a fantastic and funny sports romance. And a great debut novel for this author. In it you have Ryan and Andi, two people brought together by pizza at a terrible time for both of them. But despite the timing and a few awkward first impressions, they feel a spark that can't be denied. As they continue to get to know each other, that spark grows, but they still have obstacles that might tear them apart.
I totally loved Ryan. He was this wonderfully sweet guy who just struck all the right cords with me. He wasn't full of himself and he wasn't a jerk. He was a good guy with a great family, who had hopes and dreams that present a problem for him and Andi.
Andi was a strong willed and strong minded woman working for her dad's pizza place to put herself through college. But her deam job was something I haven't come across previously in a romance novel's leading lady. I loved the building relationship between her and Ryan and that she certainly wasn't just throwing herself at him. I also loved her loyalty to her friend and family even when it would have been easy to put the guy first.
This was just a great series startrer and debut, and I can't wait to see what this author comes out with next.
Lily Kate works a pretttttty boring day job and writes books filled with heat, heart, and humor by night. Her debut novel, Delivery Girl, is set to release in early 2017. When she’s not writing books, you may find her watching Christmas movies before Thanksgiving, eating whipped cream from the can, or hanging out with her family.
