From the publisher:
Even with a step-by-step plan, these fake fiancés might accidentally fall for each other in this hilarious, heartfelt romantic comedy from the author of The Marriage Game.
Daisy Patel is a software engineer who understands lists and logic better than bosses and boyfriends. With her life all planned out, and no interest in love, the one thing she can’t give her family is the marriage they expect. Left with few options, she asks her childhood crush to be her decoy fiancé.
Liam Murphy is a venture capitalist with something to prove. When he learns that his inheritance is contingent on being married, he realizes his best friend’s little sister has the perfect solution to his problem. A marriage of convenience will get Daisy’s matchmaking relatives off her back and fulfill the terms of his late grandfather’s will. If only he hadn’t broken her tender teenage heart nine years ago…
Sparks fly when Daisy and Liam go on a series of dates to legitimize their fake relationship. Too late, they realize that very little is convenient about their arrangement. History and chemistry aren’t about to follow the rules of this engagement.
The fake fiancée is at the forefront of this terrific romcom. Daisy and Liam go way back; they were childhood friends. But they haven’t seen each other in years. Daisy is career driven, but her traditional family is making her crazy – they want to see her married. Liam is in even deeper trouble. His inheritance is contingent on him marrying, so these old friends decide that they are the answer to each other’s problem. So the fake fiancée is born.
Daisy and Liam need to learn more about one another as adults, plus they need to date to have everyone believing their story. Falling in love was never the plan, but of course that’s what happens.
I loved Desai’s last book, The Marriage Game, and this new one lived up to my expectations. A super fun romance – don’t miss it!
