Fake engaged to the hottest quarterback in the country? SCORE.

They say nothing compares to your first kiss,
But our first kiss was orchestrated for an audience.
Our second kiss . . . that one was REAL.
He cradled my face like he was terrified he'd f*ck it up.
He stared into my eyes until the air buzzed.
Soft and slow, full of sighs and little laughs,
He inhaled me like I was the finest Belgian chocolate,
And he'd never get another piece.
A nip of his teeth, his hand at my waist . . .
And I was lost.
I forgot he was paying me to be his fake fiancée.
I forgot we weren't REAL.
Our kiss was pure magic, and before you laugh and say those kinds of kisses don't exist,
Then you've never touched lips with Max Kent, the hottest quarterback in college history.

Three months. Two hearts. One fake engagement.

MY REVIEW

FAKE FIANCEE was a surprisingly light and easy read. It had moments of drama, which was to be expected because it was set at college, but it ranked very low on the scale of angst. The characters were well-developed and the plot was fluid and easy to follow. I'll be picking up more books by this author in the future.

At 17 years old, Sunny was running away. She had had enough of what was waiting for her at home and she was ready to start anew. Unfortunately she lost control of her stolen getaway car and ended up at the bottom of the lake. As luck would have it, a concerned passerby came to her rescue. Her hero was Max. However, before they could exchange names, Sunny continued her escape.

Fast forward four years and Max is the hottest quarterback in college history, on the fast track to the Heisman. His whole life is football and he can't afford any distractions or any smears to his name. Sunny is his new neighbor, who agrees to help him fend off the drama by pretending to be his girlfriend and later fiancee. Fate or destiny or kismet ran heavy throughout this plot and these two couldn't fight it and pretty soon start to lose all pretense.

I enjoyed the characters and was very entertained by the plot. It truly was a lovely story and my only complaint was that I wanted more time spent with Sunny and Max as a real couple.
