She'd do anything for him. Including marrying him. But falling in love? That wasn't part of the deal.
Billionaire Damon Banks has everything he could ever want. Almost. When his childhood home goes up for sale, there’s nothing he wants more. The catch? The seller—his father—insists it be sold to a married couple.
No problem. Katie Langdon has been Damon’s best friend since kindergarten and there’s nothing she wouldn’t do for him. Including being his fake fiancé. They already know each other better than anyone else. How hard could it be?
But as their wedding date quickly approaches, pretending turns out to be much harder than either of them expected, especially since feelings neither of them ever thought they’d feel become very real. As the lines between real and fake become blurred, Damon and Katie must find a way to see clearly, or risk losing true love for good.
A delightful read
A sweet story. At a family dinner Katie Langdon announces that she is going to marry Damon Banks ... soon! It is a great shock to all of them, Damon and Katie have been best friends since they started school, and although everyone thinks they are a perfect couple, made for each other, they have never thought of themselves as anything other than best friends. Plus Damon is now a very rich man, and he hasn’t been back to Glacier falls for at least three years. Damon has an ulterior motive, he doesn’t get on with his father, who is now selling the family home which Damon loves more than anywhere else in the world, and the buyer has to be at least engaged, but preferably married. Damon wants to buy it, and Katie agrees to get engaged, once he owns the property they will stage a huge row and separate. If only plans worked!
The story takes them through all the twists and turns that occur as they are trying to conceal the truth, outright hostility from Katie’s brother Logan, Damon’s amazement and jealousy when he realises she has been seeing someone else, other issues that mean their marriage really has to take place. And eventually realisation that they are, indeed, perfect for each other, and must do something about it to ensure a life together.
Elena has written a story with lovely, amusing episodes, with the tension building, and building until close to the end, when a few days apart make them both come to their senses. A perfect antidote for these troubled times. Well worth reading. I received an advance copy from the author, and am delighted to write an honest review. All opinions expressed are entirely my own.
This book picks up directly where the first book left off, but the good thing is if you haven’t read the first book the author includes a recap as the story unfolds. We are spoilt in this book as we have one budding romance and another two starting to develop. We are introduced to more characters and I got hooked on their stories and couldn’t put this book down. You have Faith and Logan who are going to combust as their chemistry is just off the chart but are in denial, Damon and Katie who are organising a marriage of convenience and Sarah and Brody who are “just good friends!” This is Damon and Katie’s story two childhood best friends who will do anything for each other, even get married so one of them can have their greatest wish granted. But these things are never simple and they have to overcome a few obstacles and experience a whole wave of different emotions before they figure out the right thing to do. I’m not including any spoilers as I’ll let you read the story yourself, but I thoroughly enjoyed it and can’t wait to read the next instalment.
