Jill Michaels prides herself on one thing: being independent. That is until her daughter gets into an elite school, and she needs money more than ever. It seems her fairy godmother—aka her deceased Grammy—has granted that wish in the form of one-fourth of her estate. The only catch? She must be married by her thirtieth birthday. In two months.
Aaron Collins is fresh out of the army and back in town to help his father’s failing business. When he runs into Jill at a hotel where she’s attending a single’s mixer, he makes sure she doesn’t make it past his room and into another guy’s arms. When he hears about her predicament, he has a plan: they’ll get married and keep it a secret. And maybe have a little sexy fun until he leave towns for his new job.
But letting go of the woman of his dreams may be harder than Aaron could have ever imagined.
Lately I have been on the kick where I can’t get enough of ‘fake engagement’ type stories. I always know how hey are going to turn out (or at least how I HOPE they’ll turn out) but I want to read everyone I come across anyway.
This book follows Jill and Aaron – who were neighbors in high school and possible friends. When they randomly reconnect years later they both decide one night of fun won’t be too bad. But the easy thing about one night stands is you don’t run into the other person, but these two get thrown together again – then Grammy’s will comes into play. I don’t want to spoil anything so pick it up & read for yourself!
The chemistry between Aaron and Jill is pretty strong, and it makes you wonder why they didn’t end up dating in hgh school when they lived next door to each other. Both of the characters are so relatable to the reader, you can’t just help but want them to end up together. The supporting cast plays an important role too – even if the book focuses on Aaron and Jill. The book isn’t a long one, and the pacing is pretty quick, so this is definitely a book you could read through in a night. And it’s a great one so it’ll be worth it 🙂
