About the Book
Title: THE JAKE RYAN COMPLEX
Author: Bethany Crandell
Pub. Date: January 26, 2021
Publisher: Montlake (Amazon)
Formats: Paperback, eBook, Audiobook
A teenage movie crush set her standards high. Now a real man needs to meet them. Fast.
Chicago obstetrician Mackenzie “Mac” Huntress set her standards for men very high early on. It’s been over twenty years since she fell for a fictional movie heartthrob, and Mac’s content to wait for the real version to come along; it’s her nagging mother who’s not happy with the timeline. So Mac falls back on her lifelong Mom-surviving skill—lying. The latest fabrication: a handsome neurologist named Michael. Pity he’s too busy to meet her friends and family. Problem solved.
But when Mac’s little sister announces her engagement, Mac is expected to introduce her elusive “plus-one” at the wedding, leaving her with only forty days to find a flesh-and-blood stand-in for the imaginary Michael. And the only potential Mr. Right comes with a big hitch.
However, it turns out Mac’s not the only one bringing secrets to the wedding. With expectations high, and shocking truths to be revealed, Mac’s left to find her own happy ending, which isn’t as simple as in the movies…though it’s definitely worth waiting for.
“The plot is as fun, nostalgic, and romantic as the 80’s inspired title implies. But there’s also an unexpected amount of depth and growth to the characters–especially within the complexities of the familial relationships–that elevates the story to a whole new level of relatable authenticity. I loved it and can’t wait for the world to read it!”- A.G. Howard #1 New York Times and International bestselling Author
