Review: A Friendly Engagement by Christine Warner

A Friendly Engagement

Synopsis

Omar Esterly is married to his job. But when Omar sets his sights on a potential, family-oriented client, his confirmed bachelorhood becomes a problem. Fortunately, his friend and employee, Devi Boss, has the perfect plan…

Okay, so it wasn't exactly Devi's plan to become her friend's fake fiancĂ©e. Lies aren't her style. However, Omar offers her a big, beautiful raise—enough to track down the missing father she's never known—and Devi reluctantly agrees to the whole engagement hoax…

This was supposed to be a no-strings-attached win-win for both Devi and Omar, but when they cross the line between friendship and…well, something more, Devi realizes she’s made a huge mistake that just might cost her both job and friend—falling for her fiancĂ©.

Review

This is a light-hearted romance novel. A good for those who like humorous and funny stories and unique characters. Because that is how I will describe Devi, she lives in the moment, taking life one step at a time and not caring about what other people might say about her. She is kind, caring and fun to be around. Her boss and friend, Omar, is her exact opposite. He is always buried in work and doesn't take time for himself. She wants him to enjoy life before its over. But he is always worried about his next business deal, especially the one offered by a wealthy businessman. He has been trying to get a meeting with him but apparently he only wants to do business with someone who has a family. Omar is not that person, he never wants to get married or commit to a long-term relationship. For this deal though, he is willing to do anything, even pretend to be engaged. Devi is his best bet. She knows him well enough, they get along and enjoy talking to each other, they can easily pull off a fake engagement. What they didn't count on was falling in love...
A cute story for all book lovers, I very much enjoyed reading this novel and I hope that you'd too.
