Release Date: March 13

USA Today Bestselling Author Claudia Burgoa delivers an emotional, slow-burn, friends-to-lovers, fake relationship, accidental pregnancy romance you don’t want to miss. 

Sometimes you have to stop planning and live in the moment.


What do you do when your grandma wants to set you up on a date?

You fake it. Simple.

At least, that’s what I thought ten years ago.

It was a little lie: I’m dating Heathcliff Spearman.


Tall, dark, and incredibly handsome Heath Spearman.

My best friend.

I never thought things would get out of hand.

But things snowballed, and my grandparents think he’s my


They say some moments can change your life forever. Five happened to me in less than two


1. My grandparents threatened to visit me.

2. Heath offers to play the role of my fake fiancé.

3. We kiss—the kind of kiss that takes your breath away.

4. The lines between us blur. We go from friends to friends-with-benefits.

5. The word positive appeared on the pregnancy test.


I’m positively screwed.


Have I mentioned Heath doesn’t want children or a family?

Oh, and of course, my grandparents caught the lie…


What am I supposed to do now?


The Way of Us is an interconnected standalone in the Paradise Bay Billionaire Brothers series. A beautiful and heartfelt story of a strong woman who never gave up on family and love. A man who’s determined to rescue and defend her.

This is a redeeming love story that’ll have readers holding their breath until the very

I am so happy to have returned to Paradise Bay and the Spearman Family. This is Heathcliff and Atzi's story and if you have read any of the previous books in the series you will know that these two have been best friends from childhood, in this book we find out how they met, became friends, and when exactly their feelings changed...not that they let the other know about it. OH THE DRAMA! LOL

Neither Heath nor Atzi has had an easy life, Heath lost his dad when he was thirteen and he was the one that found him lifeless in the family vineyard and Atzi lost both of her parents and sister in a car accident that only she survived when she was eleven. To say that they found one another at a time they needed someone the most would be an understatement but the fact that they remained friends for so long is a testament to how they felt about one another. So when Atzi's maternal grandparents keep pushing her about getting a boyfriend and wanting to fix her up with someone it's only natural for her to say that she's dating Heath, I mean she's with him all the time if she's not working and she's friends with all of his siblings, so over the years it only progressed from dating to being harm no foul right? Well, now her grandparents want to visit and Heath has no clue that he's been "dating" Atzi for the last ten years let alone engaged to her...oh let the fun begin!

But that's not all the angst, there's much more. And I for one loved it all, well maybe not one part but it was a necessary part for other events to happen so I'll let it go. 

Claudia gives us an emotional read, so keep some tissues handy because you will need them, with a long awaited HEA. I for one couldn't be happier that this Grumpy Doctor and his Sunshine Chocolatier finally got their act together and declared their love for one another.

I also need to add that I listened to the audiobook version and LOVED the way Joe Arden and Janine Granda brought Heath and Atzi to life. Joe Arden is like catnip to your ears... his voice is yummy!
If you enjoy Slow Burn Romances, Friends To Lovers Romances, Grumpy/Sunshine Romances, Small Town Romances, Surprise Pregnancy Romances, Fake Relationship Romances, Forced Proximity Romances, or Contemporary Romances I would highly recommend this book to you.

Happy Reading!!!
