From a USA Today bestselling author Book 4 in the Matched Online series
Can a fake engagement lead to lasting love?
After her boyfriend dumps her instead of proposing, Mary Beth wants nothing to do with her ten-year high school reunion. Especially because if she shows up without a date, she’ll lose a bet with her high school nemesis.
Christian is too busy with his camping equipment startup to date—until his sister sets him up online. The chance connection could help his business—if he agrees to Mary Beth’s dramatic request that he pretend to be her fiancé.
But when make-believe becomes something more, they must decide if this new love can last…
What starts as pretend, doesn't have to remain pretend
Mary Beth is in a bind. Her ten year high school reunion is two weeks away and her boyfriend just called it quits. Not only is she depressed at the rejection, she's facing certain humiliation at the hands of her old nemesis over a silly bet they made years ago. So, when her best friend suggests seeking help via an online dating service, she reluctantly agrees. However, she had no idea that an online service could introduce her to such an amazing man. If only he was for real . . .
Christian Fuller just wants to focus on his new business and prove to everyone that he's not a failure. However, when his sister sets him up for a date through an online service, he doesn't have the heart to leave her wondering what happened. However, when he shows up to tell her it's all a mistake, why are his emotions showing an interest in her?
What follows is a really cute, light hearted story about two people realizing that what started out as pretend doesn't have to remain pretend.
My conclusion is that if the author can do this well with a short story of only about 70 pages, I can't wait to read what she can do in a longer, full length novel.
