Book one in the New York Times and USA Today bestselling humorous contemporary romance by Denise Grover Swank. 

Megan Vandemeer meant to tell her parents about her broken engagement, but a month and a half later she finds herself boarding a plane home to her wedding. Having stretched avoidance to its limits, it's time to come clean--a terrifying prospect since her mother is sure to blame her rather than her cheating, emotionally frigid ex. A couple of drinks and two Dramamine later, Megan finds herself spilling her sob story to the tall, dark, and handsome stranger in the seat next to her.
With only one week left to save his business, Josh McMillan boards a plane to Kansas City in a last-ditch effort, leaving the details to chance. An unexpected answer is delivered in the form of the beautiful brunette beside him. Though she’s completely loopy, her honesty, openness, and humor charm him. So when she passes out before landing, he helps her off the plane--a good deed that leads to a colossal misunderstanding. Her parents assume he’s her fiancé. In a twist of fate, the mix-up might help Josh save his business, so he plays along, figuring he can help Megan too. All he has to do is stage a public break up convincing enough to appease her mother.
Josh is only supposed to be a substitute groom, but the more time he and Megan spend together, the more their pretend engagement starts to feel real…and the less they want to break it off. Can a relationship that began as a farce turn into happily ever after?

  • Great book, but very long

    By Kaamil Naicker
    The story was great; there can be no doubt about that. However, I feel as though it could have been told in half the number of pages. The language used was simple and straightforward and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Great work!

    The story is very interesting.
  • Good old chick lit

    By CMelias
    I always turn to chick light when I need to feel some warm and fuzzies. And this hit the bill. While I felt like Megan's parents were a little stiff and flat, especially the mother, the others were well fleshed out and believable and the author really has you rooting for the couple. Good read!

    Fun read, with some laugh out loud moments throughout the book. Story kind of disappeared in the end, which was a bit disappointing. Overall, entertaining.
