Her Fake Engagement
by Gigi Garrett
No artists, no smokers, no men with beards… Manhattan real estate broker Lottie Langerman feels confident that if she follows her long list of dating rules, she’ll meet The One and her life will unfold exactly as planned. Everything changes when her best friend decides to throw a fake bachelorette party—just to see what all the fuss is about—and Lottie reluctantly agrees to play the role of bride-to-be for a night.
Faking an engagement turns out to be more fun—and trouble—than Lottie could have imagined. Not only does her dream man think she’s taken, but Lottie keeps running into bearded Brooklyn jewelry designer Tyler, who breaks every single one of her rules…yet manages to get under her skin like no one else. Soon, Lottie finds herself at a crossroads where she must decide: Play it safe—or ditch the rules and follow her heart?

Oh my, this book was not what I expected. I expected it was like most of the fake fiance’ romance books. You know the ones about billionaires losing their companies or inheritances if they don’t get married type of books. I was so wrong. This book was actually really intellectual and entertaining.
In this book Lottie is a real estate apartment broker. She rent out high dollar apartments to New Yorks singletons. Her life is lived by rules and she doesn’t break them for nothing.
Her best friend Elsa May got pregnant and married off and she wants to go out and have fun. Since becoming a mother she has not had any time alone with her friends. While out with Mia and Lottie she comes up with an idea that bachelorettes have more fun and they should have a faux bachelorette party to see if that is true.
So the girls go out on a bachelorette party and Lottie is the faux bachlorette. Lottie is breaking so many of her rules that she doesn’t know how to cope. Then she runs into Tyler, an inspiring jewelry designer. He is everything that she doesn’t date, because he doesn’t check off any of her boxes of dateable qualities. But Lottie can not deny that there is something more to him. She tries to deny it.
As the girls continue to put on these faux bachelorette parties, Lottie can’t help but feel her life is out of control and she needs to stop breaking her rules and get her life back on track. Can Lottie do this? Will she find her perfect man with all the boxes checked off?
This story had so much more to it than the typical romance novel. These woman are highly intelligent and sophisticated. Letting loose for Lottie and Elsa May is extremely against everything they believe in. They struggle to accept change and as they grow up and get older things are not as easy to accept.
The book has a wonderful group of characters in it. They are so much fun, that you will be hooked till the end. I love Tyler’s carefree attitude and sexiness. I love Mia’s energy and Jane’s innocence. If you enjoy contemporary romances, then you will enjoy this book. I highly recommend it.
