Publisher's Summary

He’s a professional football player, she’s his best friend’s sister. He knows she’s off-limits, but there’s something about her he just can’t resist.

When Jax Green, star running back for the Atlanta Falcons, loses his dad he heads back to the small town he calls home to mourn. While there, he runs into Stacey Murphy for the first time since high school, and he’s surprised by his attraction to her. But can he go against a promise and date his childhood best friend’s sister?

Stacy Murphy has dreams for her life, but every time she reaches for them something knocks her down. When her high school crush returns home, feelings resurface, but she is certain she could never be more to him than his best friend’s little sister. And what if he breaks her heart all over again?

When Jax grows weary of all the attention he’s attracting from the single women in town Stacy hatches a plan to help him get the space he needs. Perhaps a fake marriage could be the answer to both their problems.

Touching

This story began on a sad and emotional note with Jax having to come home because of his father’s death. He finds he is being hounded by the media and ladies of his hometown and hatches a plan with Stacy to pretend they are married so he can mourn in privacy. Stacy has been secretly in love with Jax, her brother’s best friend, since she was a little girl, so she agrees with the ruse however she is also afraid that she may end up with a broken heart when Jax has to return to his life in Atlanta. The story has lots of ups and downs for this sweet couple and it is inspiring to see their faith in God help them through. I enjoyed this touching, sweet story and thought that the narrator did a good job with the narration once again. #AudiobookObsessionReviewer 🎧

Stacy & Jax!

Book 4 in this series, Vivi Holt has another sweet, clean romance sure to warm your heart. Stacy has been in love with Jax as long as she an remember. Her brother's best friend, Jax has always seen Stacy as off limits. Now an NFL star and surrounded by crazy fans, the plan is to pretend they are married. But are their feelings really fake? Sometimes a story is just refreshing and fun, and this one is just that. They have a history which enriches the story, and I love the hometown feel it has. Stacy is a good person with bad luck, and it is great getting to know her and see her blossom. Jax is interesting, watching him change his views of what is important and making that change. I truly enjoyed their story, and love this series. I know it will be easy, low angst and romantic. Amanda Stribling continues to bring this series to life.I enjoy her narrations, and she does a fabulous job with this one. Her ability to go from frustrated daughter to older parent, or intoxicated character is seamless. She is up and coming and I will be watching for more of her narrations.

Only Make Believe I Love You

The local football hero has made the NFL but when he comes home for his father's funeral he is mobbed and harrassed by women hoping to snag a superstar. His best friend's baby sister is now all grown up and the perfect make-believe wife to cool the local jets. I always enjoy voice artist Amanda Stribling's narration, and author Vivi Holt has given her delightful and loveable characters to portray. Clean and faith-based, so no hanky or panky.

Sweet, Clean Romance

He's an NFL player and she's his best friend's little sister... why is the forbidden always so tempting? He's dealing with losing his father and overwhelmed by the fame and constant attention so when a plan is hatched to calm down the attention by his adoring female fans he takes it. It's simply a great clean romance without the high drama that others contain. The narration is wonderful and so much fun to listen to. It just the right amount of drama, fun, and romance to make it a book I can listen to more than once. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Stacey💘Jax! Great Story & Listen🎧Heartfelt & Sweet

Vivi Holt does it again, creating another sweet and enjoyable story in her “Make Believe” series! Each book is a stand-alone and features a different couple. This is Stacey and Jax’s story, Jax is a professional football player and a good friend of Stacey’s older brother Brad. Stacey has been down on her luck, she losses her job and her place to live. Her brother takes her in and also trains her to work with him in real estate sales. Jax’s Dad passes away and he returns home to attend the funeral and be with family. While there he decides to purchase property so he has a place of his own when back home. Stacey shows him properties and they soon learn he has fans following him around, some even propositioning him. Kiddingly his sister suggests he gets a wife and an idea pops in to his head asking Stacey to be his pretend wife, she can live and watch his new residence when away with his team. The two are great for each other and get along perfectly, yet both are blind to each others real feelings about the other. There is plenty going on in their story, lots of emotions, drama, some angst and a nice build up to a true romance. Vivi Holt thank you for another great story. I listened to the Audible edition, Amanda Stribling delivers another great audible listen🎧 She puts a lot of heart into her storytelling, you can hear the emotions of the characters as well as the drama of the story in her performance. Amanda Stribling is a talented narrator and it always a pleasure to listen to her work. Thank you 🎧@AudiobookObsession #AudiobookObsession #AudiobookObsessionReviewer
