Book Summary:
Sabrina Cassidy believes in fate. So when her fiance 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…


I’ve been on a chick-lit kick lately, and this is a fun one!

Sabrina Cassidy is sure that stable, family-oriented, handsome and kind David is her destiny. He was her fiance until he decided he needed a temporary break. Her parents died when she was young and she was raised in different foster homes – never feeling like she belonged. So she really craves a family of her own, and is willing to do just about anything to get her fiance back.

Jack Brenner is passionate about his family and his father’s company, Brenner Capital Investments. So when his dad tells him he can’t have the promotion to National Sales Manger until he shows the stockholders that he can maintain a serious relationship, he decides to do whatever it takes to show them.

Sabrina thinks Jack is heartless and arrogant; Jack thinks Sabrina is too high strung and always thinks she’s right… But he can help her get her fiance back and she can help him get the promotion. And now they’re partners at work so they may as well get along anyway!

I loved what happens when Jack opens his heart and Sabrina sees him for who he really is. Sabrina learns that it’s more important to listen to your heart than to superstitions… and when she is with him and his family she discovers what family really is! jack and Sabrina are fun together!
