Over the loudspeaker it’s announced that the flights will be laid off for another two hours, it’s then that he spots a young attractive female trying to settle down a young baby and a strong urge to help her takes over him, it doesn't hurt that she's gorgeous to boot. 

Campbell has had some hard knocks in her short life, a family that turned their backs on her, to raising a child by herself when her so called partner walked out, to having no money and having to succumb to seeking refuge in a women's shelter until she could come up with a plan. 

It's not until she meets Knight that things turn around, he's wanting to protect her and keep her and her newborn safe all it took was one lie, that they were a newly wed couple. All she's wanted is to call somewhere home it's not until she's urged by Knight to go to his family home is where she can finally see a future.

Fans of Abbi Glines (Rosemary Beach series) will enjoy this one, similar (beach, family orientated) but completely unique as a whole. There were a few gaps within the story but I'm hoping those are cleared up in the next book, a solid start to a new series that surprisingly didn't end in a cliffy.

"Arc Provided by the Author in exchange for an honest review"..

The 1st book in my new and super sexy Kings of Castle Beachseries about siblings on the NC coastal town of Castle Beach.

All Campbell Faircloth wanted was a safe place to call home.
All Knight King wanted was to leave his hometown behind.

I never expected to end up in Castle Beach, surrounded by a family who believes that I’m not only their brother’s wife, but the mother of his infant daughter.

I can’t tell them the truth—Knight and I met only three days earlier, during a layover in Atlanta.

He was headed out to fight in a war that hardly anyone talked about anymore, and I was headed back home to a family who pretended that I didn’t exist.

He helped me with my baby.

He kept us safe while we slept.

We shared lunch and dinner… and I spilled all my secrets to him.

Then he gave me an address, along with an offer I couldn’t refuse.
***
Six months later he’s back to bury his brother, and my lie is about to be exposed.

Only Knight doesn’t say a word.

He goes along with the charade, and each day we spend together, pretending to be husband and wife, it’s getting harder and harder not to believe in our lie.

Could our picture perfect lie turn into a picture perfect forever?
