A sexy category romance from Entangled's Brazen imprint...
He needs the kind of rescue only she can provide…
Glass artist Savannah Smith expected a marriage proposal for Thanksgiving—just not from her strong, silent, super-hot neighbor. But when misplaced mail and a wayward can of paint lands them in a compromising position right as her family arrives for dinner, they assume he’s “The One” she’s been talking about.
Then his family shows up.
Fate dealt a crippling blow to paramedic Beau Montgomery’s heart, and he isn’t about to put it at risk again. Except, with his mother crying tears of joy over his surprise engagement to the sexy little blonde next door, he can’t bring himself to ruin her “Christmas miracle.”
Somewhere between the paint can to the head and the chaotic family trip to the ER, Beau manages to talk Savannah into being his fake fiancée long enough to survive the holidays.
If, of course, they don’t fall in love first…
Two hearts were destine to become one long before either of them thought of a fake engagement…
Beau Montgomery and Savannah Smith are neighbors across the hall. Beau has lusted over Savannah from afar. Mainly because Savannah had herself a well to do suit she was dating. Although Beau call him the “1 for 3” guy. Why you ask?
Well, you see both Beau and Savannah’s bedroom walls but up against each other. On those nights when “1 for 3” would stay the night, with the walls being so thin Beau could hear everything and I do mean-everything. So those big “O’s” girls hope for she was only getting them 1 for every 3 times up to bat not great odds would you say?
Even though Savannah had her well-dressed lawyer man that she had been dating six months she did notice Beau. How could she not? The man was a gift to the gods. She even loved him in his EMT uniform. Plus he was in such great shape boy did he give her food for thought. But she and Mitchell Prescott III were good on paper and it looked like he might be ready to ask her to marry him. She even told her sister, Sinclair, that he was taking her out to dinner to tell her something important.
On Thanksgiving morning Beau and Savannah’s lives would intersect and forever be changed. You see they were both serving a turkey dinner for their families. For Beau it would be the first time in at least three years. But Savannah who was not used to having him home on a holiday he was sure. Since he almost always took the shift so the guys with kids could be home with them. Well, she was playing the “cheating man” playlist at a plus 10 so he needed to ask her to turn it down so that he and his parents could have a nice relaxed dinner.
So he found a piece of mail that was delivered to him by mistake that was hers and headed over. When he opens his door it’s louder even more because her door is open with a post-a-note saying “come in.” Not good. He remembers that last night after her date no boyfriend came over and she was taking a lot of trips to the dumpster that he heard. So he follows her singing, which was off tune, to a door ajar down the hall. He pushes it open and gets a little resistance. So he pushes harder and knocks Savannah of a ladder and she tosses a can of paint at his head knocking him out! He wakes to her trying to stop the blood flowing and then trying to get him off the floor. The wet paint causes slipping hands in paint on each of their hands and bodies and awkward places. And they stumble onto the bed.
Then parents arrive just as they fall on the bed. Sinclair mistakes him for the fiancée to be and all craziness breaks out and parents start hugging and crying starts flowing. And Beau tell Savannah to go with it. In shock that Beau her stand offish neighbor would say such a thing does. Yup! She does.
I totally enjoyed this hilarious family drama. The characters were well rounded and tooo funny for words. The emotion was intense at the right times too. I give this 5++++ stars. Provided by netgalley.com. Follow us at: www.1rad-readerreviews.com
