Lucas Andino had been summoned by the king…the only problem? He needed a wife…or at least a fiancée, which wouldn’t have been a problem except…his girlfriend just broke up with him.
In desperation, he turned to his best friend, Francesca—or Frankie as she was known to, well, to everyone.
Frankie needed a topic for her sociology dissertation, and she needed it yesterday. When Lucas suggested they become fake engaged so he could answer the summons of the king, Frankie saw the opportunity for what it was. Who else would have unfettered access to a monarch for their dissertation? Who else could do an up close and personal examination of an emerging nation?
Besides, Frankie would do anything for Lucas. They were best friends for a reason and if he needed her, then she was his girl. So what if she had a tiny crush on him? They were both going into it with their eyes wide open. No one was going to get hurt.
Entertaining romance with a twist. Interesting characters who have a journey to love and romance with several obstacles in the way. Several twists and turns. Hard to put down. Good read.
I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
He’s got to be engaged
He needs to be engaged.
So Lucas proposes to his girlfriend of two years who turns him down for being, well, boring. He’s nice and easy going but at 27, he’s still very much under his father’s thumb.
Francesca is his best friend and bartender. They have friend zoned each other since Harvard.
Lucas then proposes a fake engagement to Francesca before he takes his post on the island.
Another amazing book
I absolutely love this book. I could not put it down. I lost sleep to finish it. It is another amazing book by an amazing author.
