Here's the deal. I'm sixteen and I'm getting married. Super weird, I know. It was just my 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 sixteen 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 eighteen 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 sixteen months, it's me and Ellie against the world. No big deal. Or is it?
