Heal Me: Love in the Pacific Northwest Book 5 by Beck Grey

“I think I wanted to make sure it wasn’t fake feelings about a fake relationship.” Heal Me.

From the blurb:

A lawyer and an architect walk into a bar…


What do you do when your boss’s pushy nephew repeatedly asks you out and won’t take no for an answer? You create a fake boyfriend. One who works a lot, so he never comes to office functions or meets you for lunch. It works well until le salaud calls my bluff.

So that’s how I find myself at a client event, practically begging a handsome stranger to play said boyfriend. Only after I calm down do I realize le bel homme in the bespoke suit is no stranger at all. He’s my best friend’s brother, and mon Dieu, he cleans up well!

When Gunnar volunteers to keep up the ruse beyond one night, of course, I say yes. I’m no fool. But fake love can have very real consequences…


Being accosted by the attractive, if slightly flustered, Jocelin Allard before I even make it out of the parking lot isn’t how I expect to start my evening. But pretending to be his boyfriend for a few hours seems like a harmless way to liven up an otherwise painful social event.

And as far as dates go, fake or otherwise, I could do a lot worse. He’s smart, gorgeous, and has a sexy accent. Plus, my sister would kill me if I left her bestie hanging.

When the evening goes shockingly well, almost effortlessly, our relationship turns real, and for a while, it’s total bliss. Until I unintentionally take a wrecking ball to my life. Again.

Heal Me is a low-medium angst, MM fake boyfriend, sister’s best friend, contemporary romance about bad decisions, past trauma, and loving someone including their flaws. It contains no cheating, and a guaranteed HEA

Miki J's Review:

Love a good fake relationship trope, and this one is just perfect!! We’ve obviously met the characters before and, to be honest, I would at least suggest reading the previously book, especially Choose Me as that explains a lot about the Osouf Family. The other characters do make cameos as it’s a tight-knit found family.  

So, this book—it’s wonderful. Light-hearted but emotional, funny and yet dramatic, steamy and spicy and oh so sweet. It’s just a really, really good book.

“We fit. It just works. And I’m not going to question it.” Enough said—I’m not questioning it either—great series!!!

Heather's Review:

We get a pair of meet-cutes - a collision and then a fake dating scenario - which quickly evolves into something far from fake...  I love that both characters, though flawed, are committed to taking things slow and being there for each other... the angst comes with a crisis, but it is done really well and flows with the story.  

This book is the whole package - slow burn, high heat, funny, dramatic, light hearted, emotional, frustrating and redemptive... it feels like it really depicts a slice of life, from connection to crisis and back.

I do recommend reading the series in order, just to know who all the side characters are in relation to each other, but you can read this standalone if you need to.
