Synopsis: Genevieve Rodriguez’s life isn't panning out the way she’s always envisioned. At all. Not only is she exactly one “D” away from getting kicked out of school, but her heart is in pieces after her long-time crush marries someone else. For Genevieve, sunny Silver Strand has never felt more dismal.
Then Adam Abramowitz, her super-cute, super-smart physics tutor—who never seems to notice even her sexiest tops—tells her his Visa is about to expire and he’s going to have to return to Israel. Suddenly the words pop out Genevieve's mouth before she can stop them. “Marry me.” At first, it's a joke...until it's not. Because in that brief, unexpected moment, everything changes. The rules. The boundaries. And Adam and Genevieve are about to discover what happens when you push the limits.

Review - 4 Stars

This book is Genevieve's book, and can be read as a standalone in the series. I was happy to see Genevieve get her own book and I have to say that she shocked me with what she does in this story!! Genevieve had been tutored by Adam for years and no sparks have flown between the two of them yet. When Genevieve hears that Adam is worried about his green card expiring before he can get his experiment done, she has a crazy idea that runs through her mind. She can help Adam out by getting married!! Genevieve is on the outs with her family sort of and so when Adam and Genevieve announce their engagement, their family does not really receive it well.

Genevieve and Adam go through the motions of planning a wedding and carrying it out, but she has no idea that she will start to develop feelings like she does for Adam and vice versa. The way that Adam takes Genevieve and realizes how her family treats her is so heartwarming. This was such a sweet story that turned out to be real love. This has been a good series and I can't wait to see what is next from Lexi!!

Risk Me by Lexi Scott Silver Strands #2 Publication Date: July 28, 2015 Also in this series: Own Me Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance

Synopsis: For Cohen Rodriguez, getting dumped by his girlfriend was bad enough. Being told he's “not impulsive enough” was just the cheap parting gift. Still, he takes a break from his über responsible ways and dates his way through Silver Strand. Except it's not exactly turning out the way he thought...
On top of that, there's Maren Walshe, whose combination of sexy and down-to-earth is everything Cohen wants in a girl. But while they've recently been talking on the phone and texting every day, they've never actually met. Now Maren wants to meet. In person. Faced with turning his oh-so-safe fantasy girl into an uncertain reality, Cohen and Maren are both about to dive head first, ready or not.

Synopsis: Sometimes it's easier to run... Ripped apart by guilt and grief, nineteen-year-old Whit Conrad grabs her stuff and runs from her super-conservative home and family in Pennsylvania and hauls ass for sunny California. All she wants is escape. Now she has a craptastic apartment, a job at a tattoo parlour, and even a friend-who's-mostly-benefits. Then she meets a sexy, inked, surfer-dude who has the potential of capsizing everything... Deo Beckett is adrift. Underemployed and over-boozing, Deo knows he should be doing something more with his life. Being something more. All it takes is a pin-up hottie with a smart mouth—and a bruised soul—to force Deo to start looking below the surface. To wonder if there's more to life than being a beach bum. Now he's falling for Whit...and hard. But Whit ran from home for a reason, and she'll go to any lengths to keep Deo from learning the truth...
