This month we will be reading & discussing Like Lovers Do by Tracey Livesay. The author will be joining us for this discussion!

About Tracey:
A former criminal defense attorney, TRACEY LIVESAY finds crafting believable happily ever afters slightly more challenging than protecting our constitutional rights, but she's never regretted following her heart instead of her law degree. She has been featured in Entertainment Weekly, the Washington Post, and CBS This Morning. Tracey lives in Virginia with her husband-who she met on the very first day of law school--and their three children.

About the Book:
Tracey Livesay continues her fun-filled Girls Trip series with this romance that will tug at your heartstrings.

Sometimes faking it can lead to the real thing...

Driven and focused, Dr. Nicole Allen is an accomplished surgeon. With a tough past, Nic's gone above and beyond everyone's expectations. But when she disciplines an intern--a powerful donor's son--a prestigious fellowship she's awaiting is placed in jeopardy.

Coming from a successful family who runs a medical business empire, Benjamin Reed Van Mont is the black sheep, having chosen to start his own business instead. Though he's not ready to settle down, he knows when the time comes it definitely won't be with a workaholic doctor like his friend Nic--even if she's had him re-examining his edict...more than once.

When Ben's status-climbing ex-girlfriend finds her way back into his orbit, Nic proposes a swap of services. She'll spend the week with Ben on Martha's Vineyard, pretending to be his girlfriend--but only if he'll have his family intervene on her behalf so she won't lose her fellowship. How hard can the charade be?

But as they're about to discover, they've sorely underestimated their true feelings for each other...
