Shannon Stacey

That Reilly Boy

June 2023



From New York Times bestselling author Shannon Stacey comes a standalone romantic comedy about revenge, feuding families, an inconvenient marriage of convenience, and love and laughter in a small town.


My family (the Gambles) and the Reillys are on generation four of a low-key family feud. We’re like the Hatfields and McCoys or the Capulets and Montagues, but without the body count (that I know of). It’s not easy to ignore each other in a small town, but our families have managed it for decades.

Hayden Reilly and I are no Romeo and Juliet, though. Sure, I had a crush on him in high school (from afar, of course), but we haven’t seen each other in years. Now he’s back in town and he’s hellbent on buying the house I live in with my mother, as if she’d sell the house our ancestors built to a Reilly.

But we have to sell it to somebody. It’s a money pit, drowning us in endless upkeep and repair costs. It’s too bad my mother’s last words to her dying mother were a vow to keep the house in the family.


I want that house. A decade ago, I worked up the nerve to step onto the Gamble’s front porch, hoping to ask Cara to prom. Her dad threw me off the property with some harsh words I’ve never forgotten and I left Sumac Falls soon after. I worked hard and I made a lot of money. Now I’m back and I’m going to take that house away from the family that’s looked down on mine for decades.

Even if I have to marry Cara Gamble to get it.
