The Stand - In by Kristen Proby - ARC Review & Release Blitz

From New York Times bestselling author Kristen Proby comes THE STAND-IN, the newest novel in her beloved Single in Seattle series, featuring Drew Montgomery!

I don’t like my new boss. Not at all.

London Ambrose is a spoiled billionaire’s daughter. And now she’s the new co-owner of the Seattle football team, but that doesn’t mean that she knows diddly squat about football.

There’s nothing I hate more than having someone micromanaging me, shadowing my every move, and giving me their two cents on Every. Little. Thing. as I coach MY defensive line.

I don’t care about new team jerseys and branding or answering her million and one questions about how I do my job. But, I can’t help but come to her defense when an old flame shows up and starts harassing her. I’m a Montgomery. We don’t let anyone mess with women.

Now, I’m suddenly in a fake relationship, pretending to date the gorgeous billionaire and learning so many surprising things about this captivating woman that I just can’t seem to stay away from her.

When the lines between our fake relationship and real relationship blur, and my initial distaste for her turns into desire, I find myself coaching the most important game of my life - do I let my guard down or do I let London Ambrose walk away forever?

I can't lie, I am a fan of Kristen Proby, so going in to one of her books, I can usually guess that I am going to enjoy it. My expectations are high.

Drew and London didn't disappoint. As is often the case with titles by this author, this one really focuses on the couple and on them being together and falling for one another, which is what a good romance is focused on. But, there's just something about the way the author tells the stories that really draws me in.

I also really enjoyed the fake dating aspect of this, and the reason for it was both understandable and worked for the story? Was it a little predictable? Sure, but what about a fake dating scenario and having a need for a fake relationship isn't?

There were secondary characters (one of whom I really hope gets his own book) but for the most part the action of the story, and the character driven portions, were focused on the main couple and their relationship as it develops. And, I was absolutely all in for Drew and London from the beginning.

I enjoyed and recommend this title.
