Their fake relationship is a twist of fate.
Sabrina Cassidy believes in fate. So when her fiancé breaks off their engagement, she’s convinced they’ll get back together eventually. But fate was not on her side when it brought Jack Brenner into her life—and work. Frustrating, gorgeous, and cocky, Jack has an offer that Sabrina can't refuse. Not if it means getting the life she’s always imagined.
Despite being one of the town’s most eligible bachelors, Jack has a reputation that’s working against him. He has to convince his father—and his company’s board—that he’s ready to settle down if he wants a promotion. But convincing Sabrina to be his fake girlfriend turns out to be the easiest part. What he didn’t count on was their intense attraction and how easily their lie would escalate. Sabrina’s still hung up on her ex, and Jack will never settle down. But fate has other ideas…
There is something so sweet and joyful about the Entangled Bliss line, and in particular Jennifer Shirk’s Fiance by Fate. A fun and romantic tale about two people trying to prove their worth to other people and end up falling in love with each other, Fiance by Fate is a perfect read for a spring afternoon.
So, here are my thoughts on Fiance by Fate:
One of the things I really enjoyed about this book was the way Sabrina and Jack interacted with each other outside of their romantic relationship. I liked that they began to build their friendship before they got involved – it made the surprise of their attraction to each other all the more believable.
Sabrina is such a sweetheart – she hasn’t had the greatest of upbringings, so it is easy to believe her need for love and security. I just wanted her to find the special someone who would give her the love she deserves.
Jack has that playboy vibe, for sure, but beneath that lies a truly nice guy. He could have so easily seen Sabrina as some kind of prey to consume, however I love how he saw that she was someone special and treated her as such. Even if he had remained a playboy, I would have jumped into the book and pushed Sabrina in his direction – that ex-fiance of her was a real pill.
I really enjoy Jennifer Shirk’s writing style – smart, funny and very romantic, and this is such a lovely example of that.
