A fake date … a real secret
An invitation to her ex’s wedding is the icing on a crappy cake for burlesque dancer Yolande. Her ex ghosted her just as they were about to take the stage for their neo-burlesque act. Yolande’s friends at Seraph’s Burlesque Club persuade her that attending will show her ex that she’s moved on. She just needs a date.
Shy bartender Reiko has a secret, or two. She can’t risk anyone discovering that her life as a penniless PhD student and bartender is a sham. And even though she’s been in love with Yolande since forever, when Yolande needs a plus-one to save face at her ex’s wedding, Reiko knows any fantasy of romance is just that – fantasy. Yolande will never notice the way Reiko looks at her.
When the drama of the wedding reveals a spark of attraction between them, Reiko will have to risk her fake identity for the hope of real love.
