One tiny lie can cause a whole lot of trouble…

Magee Sinclair has had it up to her sassy short hairdo with the recent blunders pushing her family's advertising agency to the brink. How can she accept the promotion her father plans when she keeps making costly mistakes? She needs to bring in more business however she can. So when new client Justin Kane asks her to role-play as his girlfriend for a weekend in exchange for a lucrative campaign, she jumps at the chance.

Justin's goal to expand his chain of bike stores hinges on a distribution deal with a manufacturer. First, he needs to impress the man at a mountain resort while they bike trails with their significant others. But Justin's girlfriend dumps him, forcing him to find a quick replacement. Magee—pretty, clever, and a skilled cyclist—is the perfect choice to masquerade as his "lover."

Or so Justin thinks.

Because Magee is in major trouble. She knows no more about mountain biking than Justin does about demi-bras. Before long, an irate ex pops up, fake identities abound, and a whole lot of doors slam in the middle of the night. Yet, through the chaos, Magee and Justin discover what it really means to fall head over heels....

My Thoughts
Head Over Heels reminds me of all the reasons why I adore cheesy romances. They are fun books to fall into. I *accidently* opened this one on my Kindle while I was reading another book and I couldn't stop reading it until I finished it 2 hours later.

I think we all know how the story goes. A big, hunkin' excutive needs a pretend girlfriend to woo potential investors. Justin's girlfriend dumps him so he Magee to play his girlfriend for the weekend. Of course, their plans go to hell in a handbasket when Justin and Magee starting falling for each other . . . when they know they shouldn't. Why? Because Magee has a secret that she's afraid to let him know about. I loved the chemistry between the two characters. The bumbling mishaps that bring them closer together had me laughing. Especially picturing Magee shopping with Kate. The secondary characters added to the adorable cheesy aspect of the story. Each character had a purpose and they all met those purposes perfectly.

I really enjoyed the book. Sometimes it is fun to read something that is super quick, but still witty with great characters.
