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?

Marquita Valentine wrote a modern romance. Knight was in the army when he met Campbell and her daughter, Hazel. Suddenly his life is different. He is sngle but married to a woman who is the mother of Hazel. He is a daddy but not a father. This is a story about two people who tried hard to love but they loved without being loved. Campbell married to please her parents to find she had married a monster. Then she loved a man who was not interested in being a father, yet he did not have safe sex. Knight was his name. The women he had relationships with needed to be saved. When he saved them, they left him. He felt that he had nothing to give to keep those he lived. This is a good read and I do recommend it.

How I feel about this book is written in its title PICTURE PERFECT! The buildup was so beautifully paced. The e-mails, Skype calls...Is it weird to say that i love the fact that we get to see how their relationship grows without the sex?!?! Not to worry we still get to see the sweet and sexy times :) Knight and Cam were such a great couple to start this series with. I was so sad to see how Cam's mom treated her when she came home. I have such a great relationship with my mom so it was breaking my heart to see that. Knight is my second favorite army man (Tristan Lawson is still my no.1 :P). Everything about him was just perfect; his good heart, need to protect Cam and Hazel, to help his family in time of need… As for the King family – i have a feeling we haven't seen nothing yet. With all the tragedy that has happened to them they still remain strong and tight as a family. I'm more than ready to see how things will go with Quinn and Tate. As everyone knows I’m a HUGE Marquita fan…she can do NO wrong in my book and I’m so happy to see she delivered us another great book with amazing characters that we'll get to see and read about as this series continues.

Sweet story. Needa some editing, especially for subject-verb agreement issues, but still very enjoyable.

...but nothing like poor editing to ruin what would have been a five-star. If you can ignore the typos and dropped words, the story is lovely as love gets for two ppl who deserve a HEA. It's a believable meet-cute, growing romance and sexiness packed in a short quick read. Well done.

I loved the book. But the editing was done sloppily. Words dropped, or repeated, or out of order. That's my only problem. But it should have been edited more accurately. Loved all the characters, and I love a hero who serves his country.

Handsome, rich and with a big heart. That kind of man you only find in fiction. This is Knight King. Soldier, though wealthy. Single and close to thirty. Knight's name could not be more propitious. He has a crush on damsels in distress or young ladies in trouble. To want to save the world seems to be steeped in his personality and soul. But, calm down, that all this package also comes with imperfection. He did not come home to see his family since six years ago. Campbell Faircloth has nowhere to go. With a two-month-old baby in her arms, she knows she will not be welcome at home. But a late flight and a meeting at the airport, can change her life. A new friendship will provide a refuge and a video on Facebook, will turn her messy back into a perfect lie. A family that has experienced many traumas and yet has love and remains united and full of fellowship. Another who apparently has no motive or traumas involved suffers from lack of love and tenderness. There is no affection or understanding emanating from the maternal figure. These are the Kings and the Faircloth. The Kings have several secrets. Some are answered simply at the end of the narrative. Others are on the air and may be answered in the next book, as this is Book 1 of the Kings of Castle Beach series. And well, in addition to the twin sister, Quinn, and the younger brother, Laird, Knight have three older brothers. Some of Knight's traumas are exposed almost at the end of the plot, but the motivation of those feelings remains somewhat obscure. Especially in the aspects that involve his father. The plot is good, but short. It has credible parts, some less so. The ending is expected, a bit cliché and a bit rushed. The way the relationship between Campbell and Knight develops away, interesting. Only two scenes, and after seventy percent of reading, have adult content. Recommended for people who like short and fast plot, with flowing writing. The author did not leave much room for coaxing, but left too much room for inference.

This book was really sweet and romantic read. Campbell and Knight meet by accident at the airport when their flight is delayed because of storm. Knight is a soldier going on his next mission when he spots young,attractive women trying to calm down her young baby.Strong urge to help her takes over him and that's how they meet. Knight is a good men,I liked him.He is a soldier,hones and kind.It's been a long time since he last saw his family,he misses them but some thing from past just won't let him get back. Campbell has had a hard time in her life.She is new single mom,out of money and not in so good relationship with her parents.When they reject her once more she decides to accept Knights help. All Knight wants is to help Campbell with her new daughter and to keep her safe,and all she wants is to settle down and start a new life.So she accepts his offer and goes to his family town where she can finally see her future. This book was really lovely read.It was full of emotions and the characters were very good.But i felt like the book was fast paced.In my opinion there was not enough time for these two characters to really meet and bond,and i felt like the ending was a bit rushed.I definitely wished that we saw more of Knight and Campbell together as a couple. But overall this was really nice and refreshing read.
