My Fake Fiance BY: Lisa Scott

My Fake Fiance *A Short Story* BY: Lisa Scott

     I found this book free on my Nook & I was pleasantly pleased with how good it was. Plus it was a quick read that I got through fast. This book is the 1st one of 5 books in the Wedding Flirts Series. I cannot wait to read the other short story series that she has.



     Samantha has been invited to more Weddings these past few years then she can count on two hands, but when Samantha's invited to an old friend's Wedding, (More like frenemey), she feels that she has to find a date and fast! Samantha doesn't want to show up looking like a loser and dateless and since the clock is ticking until her frenemey's wedding it looks like that is how it is going to be until she meets a cute guy at a bar that her roommate bartenders at. The two hit it off and Samantha hires him to be her fake fiance for the wedding.

     Everything is going great until they both start falling for each other for real. Can they tell each other how they really feel? And will Samantha be able to return the favor to her fake Fiance by pretending to be his fake Fiance?

A Family Affair

I found this book on my Nook for free. At first I was surprised by how long the book was (about 558 pages) But I got through the book fairly fast.

     Christine Blacksworth is a driven, hardworking women in her mid twenties that is a part of running her father's corporate business. Her life changes forever when her father Charlie dies in a car accident on an icy road while he was at his cabin in the mountains 700 miles from their family home. Charlie would go to the cabin four days out of the month to take a break from his high demanding corporate job. Charlie's will is divided up and part of the money is left to Lily Desantro. Christine is confused on who this women is so she goes to the cabin to find out more information about Lily.
      It turns out that Charlie was living with another woman four days out of the month and he had another family. The other woman's name was Miriam and they ended up having a daughter named Lily who is 13 years old and she has down syndrome. As Christine is trying to piece together everything she ends up having a relationship with Miriam and her half sister Lily. Christine feels like she has really found herself through the Desantros and she starts to understand how her father felt when he visited his other family.

     Two problems that come up are Nate, who is Miriam's son who hated Charlie and what he did and Nate transfers it hostility to Christine. The other is Christine's alcoholic, pain-killer addicted mother, who has no idea that the Desantros' exist or where Christine is now going regularly.   Or does she?
           
     I would recommend this book and it raises a lot of questions on family relationships and family honor. For being a free Nook Book this book was amazing.
