All it takes to seal the deal is one little temporary engagement…
Ethan Logan never fails. But taking over the multimillion-dollar Beaumont Brewery is proving impossible. To succeed will mean taking drastic measures.
It means proposing to a red-haired Beaumont bombshell. It's the perfect plan—until Ethan realizes he wants her for more than just business…
Frances Beaumont won't marry a total stranger and get nothing in return. But once Ethan agrees to the socialite's terms, she expects their charade to go off without a hitch. Frances doesn't believe in love and has never met a man she couldn't handle. And then one kiss from her fake fiancé changes everything…
I love the fake relationship turning into a real love connection type of stories.
In this story both Ethan and Frances are a bit desperate in their situations, Ethan's more severely so.
The interest and attraction are there from the first moment, even though Frances claims she doesn't believe in love. But she likes to be romanced by Ethan, and the game is on. The banter is non stop, and everything is a power game for them. Who will win and who will need to step up the game.
But love is often waiting in an unexpected moment and place.
The story is well written, and has great flow in it. The characters and their families are interesting.
I just didn't like Frances' attitude of entitlement, she acted like a spoiled princess most of the time. Also from the dialog, it reminded me of a historical novel, just the way they spoke and thought.
But if you love the billionaire stories, with fake relationships, that turn into a true love connection, this story is for you!
