My Best Friend’s Mardi Gras Wedding: a Fake Relationship Small Town Rom Com

By (author)Erin Nicholas

Josh Landry is a bachelor in New Orleans, but he’s been off the market for a year until Mardi Gras arrives and he’s ready for his happily ever after. When Tori shows up at her best friend’s wedding, she’s unable to get her unforgettable kiss with Josh out of her mind and ends up kissing the wrong guy with embarrassment. To avoid ruining the wedding, she convinces Josh to be her crazy-about-her boyfriend, leading to a temporary romance that may turn into something more.


Can he play her crazy-about-her boyfriend for a few days? Probably too well.

Josh Landry is one of the hottest bachelors in New Orleans. He’s shown many a female tourist that things are definitely big and easy down here.

But he’s been off the market for a year.

Because he finally met her. Yes, her. The One.

And after nothing more than a hot goodnight kiss and a promise to meet up again next year if they’re both still interested, she went home to Iowa.

It’s been a long year.

But now it’s Mardi Gras again and he’s ready for his happily ever after. If she shows up.

Oh, she shows up. For her best friend’s wedding.

But Tori is a terrible bridesmaid because all she can think about is her knight-in-shining-Mardi-Gras-beads from last year.

And when she sees Josh again, she gives him the hottest kiss of his life.

But oops. It’s not him.

Worse, it’s her best friend behind that mardi gras mask. Aka, the groom.

Unfortunately, no one believes that it was a case of mistaken identity. So, now she has to convince everyone she has no intention of ruining the wedding. She’s going to need a crazy-about-her boyfriend ASAP. Even if he’s just faking it.

Josh is all in. And he’s not faking anything.

But this arrangement is temporary, because no one falls in love this fast. Right?

Or can Josh convince Tori the next wedding they attend together should be theirs?

“I have a wedding to go to. And I could use…a date. But it has to be you and you have to be…”

“I’m in. What do I have to be?” There was no way he wasn’t going to this wedding, and whatever else, with her. A chance to spend a few days with her? Hell yes, he was in.

“You have to act like you’re crazy about me,” she said, softly. Almost sheepishly.

He laughed at that. “I think I can pull that off.”

She smiled, but said, “I mean, like you’re…my…you know…”

“Your you know what?” He loved the blush on her cheeks and the way she was stumbling over her words. Victoria Kramer clearly didn’t realize that he’d do anything she needed him to do.

She blew out a breath. “My boyfriend.”

“Done.” Could he play her crazy-about-her boyfriend for a few days? Probably too well.
