About ALMOST DEFINITELY NEVER:
In one week, two former college rivals will challenge everything they believe to be true about each other—and discover that being wrong might just be their greatest win.
It’s official: Sadie Harper’s life is a dumpster fire. Last week she was living her best life as a beloved park ranger in a cozy woodland cabin. This week? She’s lost both—and is stuck playing hostess at her parents’ inn and feeling like a failure. She knows the pattern: whenever something good happens to her, something terrible follows. Things can’t possibly get any worse… until they do, and the one person she never wanted to see again checks into the Jasmine Falls Inn.
James Fielding: famous travel writer, charming TV host, internet darling. Mr. Annoyingly Perfect was once Sadie’s biggest college rival and turned everything—from GPAs to charity bake sales—into a competition. Now he’s shooting a new travel show that could mean a boon for Jasmine Falls’ small business owners. Trouble is, they’re all counting on Sadie to make sure he enjoys every minute of his time there—because nothing brings revenue like a glowing celebrity endorsement.
Spending her days with James Fielding’s big fat ego and sexy half-smile is agony for Sadie. Because beneath his witty banter and smoldering gaze, he’s the perfect reminder of all her shortcomings. Worse, she can’t ignore the way he makes her tongue-tied and weak-kneed—and something about his lingering stare tells her this isn’t just part of his charming persona.
When James asks for Sadie’s help with filming, it gives her a new way to do the work she loves—if she’s brave enough to take a leap. But Sadie can’t help wondering why, of all the towns, did James choose this one? And why is he so interested in helping her get back on her feet?
But most of all, why does all their pretend chemistry on set feel so much like the real thing?
