Synopsis:

Single mom Jenny Castelli has a temper to match her red hair. When the former mean girls of her high school insult her son, Jenny fires off a big lie—that she’s engaged to a rich, handsome guy and is bringing him to their ten-year reunion. Now she needs to find the perfect fake fiancĂ© for one night. And only one man fits the bill.

Geek turned tech entrepreneur Owen Dalton already had his heart broken by Jenny Castelli. Still, he finds himself agreeing to her proposition—even as he struggles to remember that the chemistry sparking between them isn’t real. But when Jenny’s ex makes a play for custody and Owen is forced to deal with the family who always treated him as “second best,” their arrangement suddenly becomes very personal. And that lie they’ve been telling everyone? It isn’t nearly as big as the one they’ve been telling themselves.

Review:
This book follows single mom Jenny who has a very strong personality and mouth.  Sometimes her mouth gets her in trouble and that is exactly what happened when she ran into her old classmates and they started talking about a reunion.  Unfortunately, Jenny got ahead of herself and ended up saying she was engaged to her old boyfriend Owen who is a very successful entrepreneur.

Jenny was such a strong character in the book she was successful in her own right.  Her main goal in life was making sure her son was well taken care of.  She did have the tendency to become closed off to protect herself from getting hurt.

Owen is one of my favorite characters I have read in a while.  The author tells this story from both Owen’s point of view and Jenny’s point of view.   It was a great to be able to get into Owen’s head and see exactly what was going on.  Owen has his own issues that he is diligently working through.  I liked that we got to see all his emotions as well as his actions during the book.  The author did a great job developing Owen to be a complex yet enjoyable male lead character.

I loved that we got a real look into Owen’s family dynamic in this book.  He has a lot of issues with his family and the author did a great job looking at these issues and expanding upon them.  We also got to see the relationship between Owen and each member of his family, which helped me to fall for Owen’s character.

The author does a great job with the storyline in this book.  It flows along from one crazy idea to the next idea.  I enjoyed the other issues the author brought up about single parents and the struggles that they go through.  I also loved how the story just expanded and the chemistry was perfect in this book.  This by far was my favorite book in this series.

One part I just didn’t love was Jenny did start to flip flop a lot in her head and it started to drive me nuts.  If both Jenny and Owen could just have an open conversation I feel like a lot of the tension might have disappeared.

You don’t need to read the other books in the series to know what is going on with the other characters, but it helped me with reading this book.  I felt like I knew the other characters the author was talking about and could feel connected to them as well.   Plus, I know some of their personalities so it was easy to take that knowledge from the other books and add that into this book.  I would highly recommend reading this series the books are easy to read and have such cute fun stories.

I would suggest this as a nighttime read.  Although I could sit down and read this book in one sitting, I felt like the story was a cute one that would take your mind off the long day you might have had and take you to a cute romance world.


I received a copy of this book from Barclay Publicity for the purpose of providing an honest review.  This does not affect my opinion of this book.

My Rating: 4/5
