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. (
This is the fourth book in the O’Connor Family series and I think it’s my favorite so far. With both a friends to lovers and fake fiance tropes, I was happy.
Miranda moved to Holly, NC almost a year ago, but a few months later, her sister left her with her eleven year old son Mateo. Dealing with becoming a single mother, er, aunt, around the same time as meeting Nolan O’Connor, Miranda thought it would be too much. She and Nolan became best friends instead.
But circumstances changed when Nolan overheard Miranda making a date with someone. If she was ready to date, it was going to be with him. His inner cave man came out and he realized she was the one for him. She was special to him, and he’d been giving her space because he thought that’s what she wanted. But maybe he needed to make his own intentions known.
Miranda’s mom decided to drop in for a surprise visit, and since Miranda moved to Holly to put some space between her mom and herself, it’s not really the most welcome visit. But it’s her mom, so what can she do? Other than find a fake fiance that is. To get her mom off her back about dating, she made up a fiance. A fiance named Nolan 😉
While Miranda thinks he’s just putting on a show, Nolan is trying to show Miranda what she means to him. Everything is going perfectly until tragedy strikes. Can their fake relationship survive reality?
I liked this one a lot. It’s cute, it’s sweet, and it’s sexy. I like this series, and I really liked Nolan and Miranda together.
