She needs a fake fiancé…
With the holidays fast approaching, Miranda Flores makes up a fake fiancé so her well-meaning family will get off her back. She just never expected them to suddenly show up on her doorstep a couple weeks before Christmas, wanting to spend the holidays with her. So she turns to Nolan O’Connor, her sexy best friend, and asks him for the favor of a lifetime: she needs him to act the part of her fiancé until her parents leave town.
He wants forever…
Pretending to be engaged to the woman he’s already fallen for? No problem. Nolan agrees to Miranda’s fake engagement scheme because as far as he’s concerned, she’s the one. But he plays his role too well, because soon the entire town thinks they’re engaged and things get more complicated—especially since he can’t pretend with her anymore. Then tragedy strikes and Miranda tries to shut him out, but Nolan won’t let her. He’ll do whatever it takes to convince her that he wants to make her his forever.

Another great O’Connor favorite!
Katie Reus is one of my top favorite authors. She has a knack for writing the dominant Alphas I love without turning them into jerks. Her Alphas are protective and really know how to take care of their woman, while staking a claim that tells every male in vicinity to back off. Now that’s sexy!
I gotta admit, I was a bit worried she was changing things up with this book when Nolan stayed as just a friend at first. I never should have doubted. Once Nolan found his opening to stake his claim, Miranda didn’t know what hit her.
My favorite part of this book was when tragedy struck. We truly got to see how much Nolan loved Miranda and how he took care of her even when she pushed him away. There is no way you won’t fall for Nolan.
This is a novella, so the friends only part is short and the pushing away is even shorter. The tragedy is sad but won’t bring the story down. This is a standalone but she has a book on each sibling in the O’Connor Family. You’re gonna want to check them all out. ARC provided by NetGalley.

K R Press publishers
Nolan fell in love with Miranda, 10 months ago, and still nothing from her. For her, she wanted her Nolan fix everyday, and still puzzled of why he was still single. Content, to be just friends, without any tanglements. She comes with a package deal, and not many men want that. Things change fast, when she needs a fiancé fast, parents are coming for holidays. Finally things may change for them. All of Susan books are good, enjoyable and a pleasure to read, readers will definitely enjoy.
Given ARC. by Net Galley for my voluntary review and my honest opinion.
I just loved Nolan and Miranda
Miranda and Nolan are best friends so it's not a big deal when she has to come up with a fiance short notice so her family will get off her back.
Nolan has always loved Miranda much more than a friend but he has never made a move until now. And although she is thinking fake umm nope this sexy man has it all figured out.
The O'Connors are one big loving family and I just love Momma O'Connor. I am sure you could read this without the prior books but I would recommend you begin with book 1 and enjoy each one.
