Here's the deal. I'm 16, and I'm getting married. Super weird, I know.
It was just me and my dad. We lived on a cattle ranch in Montana. He died suddenly, leaving me an orphan (which is still a thing). I'm 16 months away from being a legal adult, so I have two choices. A foster home or marry Jake Talley. My dad's foreman and really, my best friend.
It's legal. It solves all my problems. Except now, I'm living with Riverbend's hottest cowboy — my husband in name only — and I'm still in high school. Where no one wants to date weird, married Ellie. Still, all we have to do is wait until I'm 18 to get a divorce. Then, Jake and I can go back to being normal.
We've got this. Right?
I never saw this coming. Married. To a kid I've known her whole life. But there was no way in hell I was going to let her live at a foster home. The ranch is where she belongs.
Sure we're married, but it's not real. Just a piece of paper. My girlfriend is furious. But I know I'm doing the right thing. For 16 months, it's me and Ellie against the world.
No big deal. Or is it?
