ARC REVIEW : Love Happens Anyway by R.J. Scott
Hiring a boyfriend for Christmas; what can go wrong?
Derek is facing yet another Christmas where his life feels out of control. He has a new career that doesn’t feel like his, and parents who would just love to see him settled down. All he needs is a temporary buffer for the parties he has to attend, and for his parents to leave him alone. Enter, Luke.
Luke is twenty-thousand dollars short for the renovations on Halligans; his family’s bar in New York’s Financial District. A favor for a buddy has him agreeing to play the part of boyfriend to a guy with more money than sense.
But when the spirit of Christmas works its magic on the two men, and they begin to fall for each other, Derek runs scared, and Luke needs space.
It doesn’t matter what obstacles you throw in the way of love, or how much you run in the other direction, because, when you’re least expecting it, whether you want it or not, love happens anyway.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Derek is a dreamer,but he's afraid having a real boyfriend because of so many disappointment in the past. But his mother insisted to meet 'Marcus' his made up boyfriend even just for a cup of coffee. Because Marcus is a firefighter and so busy.
The problem is, Marcus not real.
Luke is desperate to find money for his bar, and he needed it ASAP.
Luke's friend Alan made a deal with Derek that he'll have his Marcus right on time.
So, as a formal escort (with no sex deal), Luke agreed to Derek's term.Including lied to everyone that Luke is Marcus.
But what Derek didn't know is, Luke used to be a firefighter himself. It's kinda a dream come true, and a Christmas magic worked for them.
But I don't think they could ignored the attraction between them. One kiss leads to another, and they have to face the truth and tells everyone who Luke really is.
I enjoyed Luke and Derek's journey finding love. It was sweet and sigh-able. And the epilogue confirmed me that they have their HEA!
