Genre: Contemporary Romance

Picture Perfect Lie AMAZON

All Campbell Faircloth wanted was a safe place to call home.
All Knight King wanted was to leave his hometown behind.
I never expected to end up in Castle Beach, surrounded by a family who believes that I’m not only their brother’s wife, but the mother of his infant daughter.
I can’t tell them the truth—Knight and I met only three days earlier, during a layover in Atlanta.
He was headed out to fight in a war that hardly anyone talked about anymore, and I was headed back home to a family who pretended that I didn’t exist.
He helped me with my baby.
He kept us safe while we slept.
We shared lunch and dinner… and I spilled all my secrets to him.
Then he gave me an address, along with an offer I couldn’t refuse.
Six months later he’s back to bury his brother, and my lie is about to be exposed.
Only Knight doesn’t say a word.
He goes along with the charade, and each day we spend together, pretending to be husband and wife, it’s getting harder and harder not to believe in our lie.
Could our picture perfect lie turn into a picture perfect forever?

A Review by Wendy

3.5 Little Lies, Big Truth Stars
* * * 1/2
Spoiler Free

Oh, how a name from birth can blueprint behavior and actions. Knight King was his name and it seems it was also how he was wired... the Knight part. 
Knight sees a young woman with a fussy baby in the airport waiting for a flight just like him. She is beautiful and caring, trying to calm her little one down.... But there is something that looks a miss...

Campbell doesn't know how she is going to get by, but she is determined to... one way or another. She has made some mistakes...but the little sweet one in her arms wasn't one of them. Campbell is stuck at the airport with all of the other passengers due to the ice storm hitting the area. She out of funds, has no family that will accept her and her baby and is feeling all of these emotions. 

She must have had them transmitted to her daughter Hazel, because she just won't stop fussing...until He shows up... Just like a Knight in White Armor...
Knight and Campbell strike up a conversation and the next thing they know, they are sharing their time, meals and hidden secrets with each other. Knight is about to go off on another military mission and the idea of Campbell lost and caring for little Hazel alone out there is too much for him to take. He decides the only way she can handle it all is to take advantage of his not being around his home and go to Castle Beach as his wife. He isn't planning on being back anytime soon, outside of some serious family emergency, so she would be free and clear to raise Hazel safely away from her issues. 
This way Campbell can get on her feet, figure things out like she had hoped... no harm. no foul...

Perfect...After first saying no... Campbell realizes doing as Knight offered is the only way...and his family takes her on board as Knight's wife with his daughter. Knight and Campbell start a long distance friendship via Skype and Facetime...Where they get to know each other little by little...
Campbell and Hazel are safe and sound and both of them figure things are ok as he is away....

But then there is a serious family trauma and Knight must return home... and this is where all the "picture perfect lies" come home to roost...

This is one of those reads that happen fast...has enough sweetness to enjoy and hope for more of the series to come.

A gifted copy was provided by author/publisher for an honest review.

ALTHOUGH I HAD SWORN to never be a woman who needs a man—well, to never be that woman again, I find myself being led by Knight and following him like he’s leading us to the Promised Land.
“Free food, free hot shower... and my company,” he says as we walk to the USO Lounge.
“What else can you ask for during an ice storm?” On second thought, maybe he is leading me to the land of soft beds and all the food I can eat.
“There’s something I didn’t tell you,” he says, stopping short of the entrance. Unease scuttles through me.
“What’s that?” I hold Hazel closer to me, breathing in her baby scent like it’s a talisman that can protect us.
“They think we’re married.”
