Its officially I really liked this author and will be collecting her books slowly but surly. Onto this first book….
Spenser Holiday is the main speaker. Spenser is a ladies man but also a gentlemen who loves his family. Loves them so much in fact that he opened his big mouth and tells a lie that he is engaged to his best friend/ business partner Charlotte. Just so that his dad has the chance at a business deal to sale his business and retire. It was only supposed to be a week long fake engagement that soon became more.
This book as a whole I liked very much and for many reasons. One being Spenser himself. He may have been a ladies man and opened his mouth to lots of lying to his family. However I can’t fault him for doing it. His heart was in the right place and wasn’t just a selfish act for his benefit.
Then we have Charlotte the best friend/business partner who sucks at keeping secrets yet she agrees. Also Charlotte has a problem of her own dealing with a ex boyfriend who is pretty much stalking her. So agreeing to this fake engagement has some benefits other then the sexual ones.
and of boy is there sexy times. It doesn’t come off right away because Spenser doesn’t want to go there however as things heat up they both take what the other can give. Plus being best friends since college has helped make the relationship seem more real. They have great humor along with great chemistry which brings a great read.
Plus the side characters including siblings, best friends, and family members make me smile so much. Another plus being that the end conflict was minor to how some blowouts happen. I was happy that it didn’t follow the usual format that made me love this book more. Last plus there is two more books out on some of the side characters which am more than happy to spend my money on and read them as soon as possible.
Okay done rambling for now other than to say please read and let me know what you think.
