Genre: Romance | Pages | Published: 7.27.21 by Forever Pub
Book Jacket Synopsis:
Barb Curtis returns to Sapphire Springs with this heartwarming romance where a small-town bakery owner finds herself in a fake relationship with the man she’s always pined after.
Will a fake relationship between two friends lead to true love?
After having his heart broken on national television, Tim Fraser knows only one way to stop the gossip about his love life-a new girlfriend. The problem is, he’s done with romance forever. A fake relationship with his friend and Sapphire Spring’s sweetest baker, Emily Holland, seems the perfect solution to getting rid of his newfound fame, but their fleeting fauxmance is stirring up the kinds of feelings Tim has sworn off for good.
Emily has secretly lusted after Tim for years, but pretending her feelings are all for show never factored into her fantasy. Still, her decades-long crush makes it impossible to say no to Tim’s proposal. But with each date, the lines between pretend and reality blur, giving Tim and Emily a tantalizing taste of life outside the friend zone . . . if they can find the courage to give real love a chance.

When an anchor is lowered into the water, we rely on it, trust it not to move. Even through the stormiest of weather, the craziest of tides, it remains grounded and doesn’t waver. It symbolizes strength, hope, and stability. And a safe end to a long journey.
Review & Thoughts
Only For You is the second book in the Sapphire Springs series by Barb Curtis. Overall I loved this book and am really getting into her writing style. I’m looking forward to reading more of her work and read that there’s a third in the series coming out soon.
The second book is about Emily and Tom. Emily is a woman after my own heart! Taking a 2 hour nap followed by a bubble bath? Yup, we’d get along just fine. I loved the maple goodies and I’d love to see a maple cake like hers in person.
Trope: fake relationship, unrequited love, small town love, bakery owner

About Barb Curtis
A happily-ever-after-crafter at heart, Barb Curtis’ love for writing began with a quick-witted style column, and her background in marketing led to stints writing print and web copy, newsletters, and grant proposals. The switch to fiction came with the decision to pair her creativity with her love for words, and crafting characters and settings she could truly get lost in. Barb happily lives in a bubble in rural New Brunswick with her husband, daughter, and dog. You’ll find her restoring the century-old family homestead, weeding the garden, and no doubt whistling the same song all day long. You can learn more at:
