What's a little fake engagement between best friends?


Danielle and Wes have been best friends since college, so when Wes needs a date for his sister's wedding and Dani needs a partner for her company's retreat, they devise the perfect plan: a fake engagement to get through both events unscathed. Adrenaline-junkie Wes can prove to both his ex and his family that he's well and truly moved on, and serious-minded Dani can prove to her boss that she's worthy of the promotion he seems to only want to give to a family-oriented employee.


But amid the fake swoons, fake kisses, and forced proximity, neither expects the very real feelings that develop. There's nothing more dangerous than falling for your best friend…but what if the landing is worth the fall?

CHAPTER 1

Apparently, even spammers were bound and determined to shove her lack of a love life in her face today. Dating sites filled her junk folder. She could View Beautiful Singles or WINK at singles now—free for three whole days! Did winking usually cost more? Dating a millionaire would probably be nice, but the Be one of our cougars! from CougarDating.com stung. Hello? She wasn't that old.

There was also an exclamation-marked e-mail about increasing the size of something she didn't have. But apparently, it was a very pressing matter.

Dani clicked the box to select them all, hit the delete button, and watched them disappear. If only she could do the same to her work inbox. There were approximately thirty e-mails about the upcoming retreat now that more details had been announced, most of them in screaming caps and containing multiple exclamation points, because one just didn't convey enough freakin' excitement.

Of course they're excited. They all get to take their significant others and get in good with the boss.

While the company would never call the retreat couples exclusive, the one they'd had two years ago proved that being part of a duo meant more one-on-one time with the boss and his wife. Wayne Bridges always bragged about how Bridges Marketing, Inc. was a family-friendly business—he also had this whole competition-makes-you-stronger stance—and she knew one very pompous jerk had been promoted over her as a result, even if Wayne would deny it.

And maybe Mr. Pompous's marketing degree had edged him in, too, but Dani had done most of the work for every account they'd taken on together. All the work and none of the credit. But with a new senior exec position opening up, she was going to change that, no matter what it took. Because medical bills were expensive, and unless she won the lottery soon, the only way to get extra money was to move up, preferably ASAP. Mama was now living in Florida with Abuela Morales, taking over the physical care as well as working long hours to try to pay for everything. Dani was helping financially as much as she could, and between the two of them, they were still barely squeaking by every month. Mama told her not to stress, that it wasn't her responsibility, yet she felt the constant burden weighing her down. When she'd gotten all the scholarships she could for college—both for academics and basketball—and still came up short, her family had pooled their money so she could go. Abuela Morales, her maternal grandmother, was the one who'd given her the most.

Dani drummed her fingers on the desk, trying to figure out how she would push past the fact that she couldn't participate in most of the physical competitions at the retreat without a partner and still get the promotion anyway. Not to mention the fact that she tended to freeze up around her boss, like his presence cut off the part of her brain where full sentences were stored.

Her cell phone rang, Justin Timberlake's "SexyBack" filling the air. That song meant her day was about to get better, and it even had her cracking a smile when she answered.

"Tell me I don't have to go," Wes said. He was the one who'd programmed JT's song as his assigned ringtone the last time they were together, claiming the tune was "so me."

"You don't have to go," Dani said.

"Thanks. And thanks for not asking what you're giving me permission to miss."

Dani stood and leaned against the wall of her gray cubicle. From this viewpoint, she could see the setting sun through the window of the office she hoped to soon make hers. "You're talking about your sister's wedding. And like I said, you don't have to go, but you should, and we both know you're going to."

Wes's sigh came over the line. "If you ask me, she let me off the hook when she picked my ex-fiancée as her bridesmaid. Today when I was home, Audrey and my mom both gave me these pity-filled looks every time they mentioned her name. Like I'm not over her. And I am."

"Of course you're over that self-centered princess." Okay, so her description might be a little harsh, but she knew Wes needed to be reminded why he should be over his ex, Sophie, even though Dani wasn't sure he actually was. In fact, she sometimes worried he never would be, and that was a shame, because she'd never been good enough for him in the first place. The girl was way too high maintenance for Wes, all demand with no compromise.

"Enough about all that boring crap. How's life on your end?" he asked.

Dani told him about the retreat and how she felt all this pressure to stand out but didn't know how she was going to compete in boat races when everyone else had a partner. "Not to mention all the sad looks I'll get—a few of my coworkers' wives always want to set me up, too. A couple of months ago I told everyone I was dating someone just to get them off my back. If only I had an actual guy to go with me." She used her thumbnail to scrape away the remnants of her last manicure. "Guess you don't happen to be free at the end of this month."

She'd thrown it out as a joke, but the tingling of an idea was working its way through her head, and she started to wonder if it might be brilliant. She snuck back inside her cubical and lowered her voice, even though most everyone had already left for the day. "Wes, fly over here and go with me. I'll tell them ... I'll tell them you're my fiancé or something. We'd rule all the physical competitions, I wouldn't be so nervous with you there, and I'll finally get Wayne's attention."

The other end of the line was dead silent. She glanced at the display to make sure they were still connected and then put the phone back to her ear. "I know it's kind of extreme, but I haven't seen you in forever and—"

"I'll be your fiancé for the retreat if you'll be mine for Audrey's wedding," Wes said. "I was going to try to find a date, but this would be so much better. It'll stop the pity-filled looks, and you know me well enough to pull it off—plus everyone's always suspected we were more than friends anyway. It's the perfect way to show Sophie I've moved on since she dumped me."

Dani bit her lip. "I'm not sure taking off work right before I go up for a promotion is—"

"You never take time off. Come on, Dani. I need you here."

She was also thinking about the cost for the flight to North Carolina, but Wes had said he needed her, so how could she skip it now? Not to mention, it'd been way too long since they'd seen each other—calls and texts just weren't enough with her best friend.

The more she thought about it, the more this seemed like the perfect solution for both of them. She could picture showing up at the wedding with Wes to see Sophie's lips twisting up in that tight-ass way they always did. She imagined sitting behind the desk in the office across from her cubical, giving instructions instead of doing all the grunt work. And even better, she pictured the extra zeros behind her paycheck every month and finally being able to help her family without barely scraping by.

"I'm getting down on one knee right now," Wes said, but she could also hear the crunch of chips, meaning he was most likely sitting on his couch, spilling crumbs all over himself. "Danielle I-forget-your-middle-name Vega—"

"You don't know my middle name?"

"You've got, like, three of them, and they're all in Spanish."

"I've only got two, and names are names."

"Oh, like you remember mine."

"Jonathan."

"Okay, fine, you win this round. Now if you'd stop busting my chops, I'm trying to ask you something here." The sound of more crunching chips came over the line. "So like I was saying ... Danielle two-middle-names Vega, will you do me the honor of pretending you're going to marry me?"

She laughed, a lightness filling her chest. Of all the stunts they'd pulled, this one would take the cake. First the wedding cake, and then that awful bakery kind they passed around the office whenever one of her coworkers had a birthday or, you know, blinked right. Even though Wes couldn't see her, she went all out, throwing a hand to her chest, batting her eyes, and doing her best over-the-moon-with-a-side-of-ditzy voice. "Yes! Yes! A thousand times, yes!"


As the plane descended toward Charlotte, North Carolina, excitement danced through Dani's stomach. She leaned forward in her seat and peered out the tiny window. She'd grown up a few hours away in Greensboro and had gone to Wingate University, which was about forty minutes south. The green trees, all the historic sites, and the fact that Wes was here—it felt like coming home.

The flight attendant did the last check through the cabin and Dani started bouncing her leg—until her seatmate, a crabby older woman, glared. She probably doesn't have a best friend, period, much less one she's dying to see.

Or should I say fiancé? Dani shook her head. Being engaged to Wes was an odd thing to think about. When they'd met freshman year over their nerdy love of history, they'd become instant friends. They studied together, hung out most weekends, and occasionally crashed at each other's places if they were too tired or too tipsy to make it home.

People always assumed they were a couple. No one seemed to get that they simply loved each other without being in love, and that Wes was still the one friend who made everything better, who was by her side when she needed him most.

Finally the wheels touched down and they taxied toward the gate. Anticipation tingled through her veins, and it was all she could do to patiently wait for her turn to exit. Whatever happened with their fake engagement and his sister's wedding, this was going to be the vacation she so desperately needed. Already her body felt lighter, her head clearer.

As soon as she got off the plane, she zipped past the other people, weaving in and out, practically running now. She walked past security and scanned the faces. Nope. Nope. Nope.

"Dani!"

She turned toward the voice, her feet already propelling her forward. Wes met her halfway, scooping her up in a giant hug. She squeezed him so tightly the brim of her baseball cap ended up crooked. She took a step back to get a better look at him. His wavy, dirty-blond hair was longer than usual, and from the looks of it, he hadn't shaved in weeks. He grinned and his pale blue eyes lit up—good to know he was as excited to see her as she was to see him.

"I almost didn't recognize you with all the scruff. You look like you should have an ax over your shoulder and a big blue ox for a pet." She ran her hand down his face and his whiskers tickled her palm. "Do girls go for that these days?"

"Not many, unfortunately," he said, but she knew that wasn't true. Although Wes hadn't had a serious relationship since Sophie, there was never a shortage of girls after him.

He took her suitcase from her. "Audrey and my mom are both on me to shave and get a haircut before the wedding."

They started toward the exit and he eyed her get-up of T-shirt, yoga pants, and neon yellow sneakers. "If I'm Paul Bunyan, you must be Workout Barbie."

She elbowed him in the gut. "Hey, I was flying and bloated. Give me a break."

He flashed her a grin and draped his arm over her shoulders. "I'm so glad you're here. I figured we'd do a little hiking, and then I've got something special planned for tonight."

Something special usually meant something she'd end up regretting later. "Have you talked to your family yet? Do they even know I'm coming to the wedding?"

His grin widened. Wes loved to be the center of attention, loved a good prank, and this was a mixture of both. Of course he hadn't warned them. "They're going to flip. But we don't have to deal with anyone until tonight after dinner, so we'll worry about that later."

Over the phone this had seemed like the perfect solution, something that would be simple. But now that she was here, thinking of meeting Wes's entire family, a ball of nerves was forming in her gut. Since she wasn't actually going to marry him, it shouldn't matter whether his family liked her or not, should it?

She pressed down all her worries the best she could and shot him a smile. "Actually, I'm more worried that my fiancé looks like a hobo."

* * *

Over the past few weeks, all the stupid wedding stuff had been throwing Wes off, leaving him constantly on edge. Okay, so if he were being honest, it was mostly the Sophie thing. He still couldn't believe Audrey had made his ex a bridesmaid. Yes, the reason he'd met her was because she and Audrey were friends, but it felt like choosing sides, and since he was the one dumped on his ass without any more explanation than "It's just not going to work," Audrey should've chosen his. To add insult to injury, about a month after breaking off the engagement, Sophie had shown up at the bar he frequented with some dude hanging all over her.

But the instant he and Dani were hiking up the trail, none of that mattered anymore. Especially now that they were nearing the Buzzard Rock outcropping, where they could sit in the sun and get a view of the entire area.

Dani blew out a breath. "This is your idea of a small hike?"

"Anything not requiring rappelling gear is small."

She shook her head, but she was smiling. He knew she'd be down for however big or small he decided to go, which was why she was his favorite person to just hang out with. It was hard to explain their relationship to people—especially to his guy friends, who couldn't believe he'd never "hit that." It wasn't like he'd failed to notice that Dani was naturally pretty, her Mexican ethnicity giving her an exotic look he'd seen plenty of dudes drool over. A fact that Sophie had definitely noticed. They'd argued about his relationship with Dani all the time.

What people didn't get, though, was that being with her was effortless. They liked the same things, laughed at the same jokes—she just got him in a way no one else did. When something good or bad happened, she was the first person he wanted to call, and it had been like that pretty much since the day he'd met her.

At the top, he pulled out two water bottles and handed one to Dani. She took a swig and looked over the valley. Her shoulders relaxed and she closed her eyes, tipping her head to the sun. He knew she'd like this place as much as he did.

"I miss this," she said. "I should find trails in Arkansas, but it takes so long to get out of the city, I never have anyone to go with, and I just don't think it'll ever feel like home the way North Carolina does."

"So move back."

She looked at him, head tilted. "Oh sure, just leave my job and move back. Easy for you to say."

"What's keeping you? You moved out there because of Steve, and now that he's out of the picture, you might as well come back home." She turned away, so he couldn't see her expression. He knew the idiot she'd followed to Arkansas had hurt her, and he hoped she wasn't staying to try to get back together with him. Wes had felt the urge to punch the guy from day one, but he'd tried to get along with him for Dani's sake. If he ever saw Steve again, he was going to enjoy telling him exactly how much of a loser he was, though.

"My job's in Little Rock." She plopped down, and Wes sat next to her. She picked up a handful of dirt and let it drift through her fingers. "How about you? Still glad you left your desk job to fly helicopters?"

"Hell yeah." When he'd first considered quitting his perfectly good software sales job to train for his pilot's license, his family had flipped. Dani was the only one who'd told him to go for it if that was what he wanted. She also said that if everyone else disowned him and he ended up broke, he'd always have a spot on her couch to sleep and her fridge to raid.

"I love my job," he said. "Love being up in the air, flying over the city in a matter of minutes. And now that I've got more piloting experience, I'm thinking of starting my own tour company. Something a little more exciting—all the places in North Carolina people don't normally see with historical facts made more interesting by yours truly." He grinned at her to drive the point home. "Maybe even places where people can cliff dive or go white water rafting—spots that are nearly impossible to get to any other way."

    I don¿t think my poor tummy ever felt so many things before. Als

    I don’t think my poor tummy ever felt so many things before. Also, I don’t think I ever got so many weird look because of reading in public. Getting teary eyed and then smiling like a fool in love in the beach is bound to do that, though. 

    Falling For Her Fiance is a book full of romance, comedy and lots of emotion in each page.

    Dani and Wes have been best friends since freshman year in college. They push each other to do impulsive things and have amazing adventures together. And while life made Dani move a few states over, they still talk to each other for hours on the phone. 
    Problem is, Wes family is convinced he is so not over his ex fiance and bridesmaid for his sister wedding. And Dani’s after a promotion she’s sure she won’t get because she’s single and her boss is all about family... the two kinda crazy friends figure out that pretending to be engaged at each other will be the perfect solution for their problems... nothing can go wrong and people has believed there was more to them than friendship anyway... see? perfect plan... 
    Right.

    Dani is a lovely character. She worries about her family and tries to help them as much as she can, but for that she really needs the promotion. And after her last boyfriend dumped her, she is not really sure she can go back to the game. 
    Wes is impulsive, a dreamer in its purest form. He wants to be free and being a helicopter pilot is all he needs in life. But for most people, he needs to grow up, and learn some responsibilities.

    The relationship between these two is such a beautiful thing. They know each other inside and out. They never let someone else get in the middle, something no boyfriend/girlfriend was happy about. They can have an easy banter that had me laughing (Cue more weird looks from people around me) But there’s more to them than that. 
    They complement each other perfectly: Dani is more like the voice of reason of the two, always overanalyzing everything while Wes just loves to jump into things and figure things out on the way.

    The book’s writing is beautiful. Cindi Madsen really makes you feel the characters and their emotions while they struggle to deal with their feelings and keep intact their friendship. 
    The secondary characters were so well developed and added the perfect background for the story. Each one of them adding a bit more, Wes’ family is so full of love and always stepping into each others business that they make sure you have a laugh. 
    In all, the book is a perfect romance read.

    I couldn’t put it down, read it in a day and still want more. This is definitevely going to be another hit for Cindi Madsen and Entangled. A must read of 2013.

    5 stars - A book that reminds me why I love to read!

    Do books ever call to you? They do to me. Guess that makes me weird but this is one of those books that called to me. I started this new review policy that says I'll accept your book if I want to read it only. When this book was offered to me, I was so glad for that new policy. I didn't have to look at my calendar and say, I might be able to get it in sometime in March. I wanted to read it, now. Once I had it, it just kept calling to me. The book I was reading wasn't doing anything for me and so I picked this one up. A few hours later, I had finished a fabulous story.

    The pages flew by and I'm already missing Wes and Dani. Two people that were meant to be together but were only friends, best friends. They know each other so well and they enjoy each others company. Both recently dumped by people they thought they loved. Both looking for a way to get through some awkward social commitments. Both agree to pretend to be engaged. That's were the fun begins.

    I've read other stories were two people pretend to be engaged but end up falling for each other but this one felt fresh to me. Why? I think it was the characters themselves. Genuine and clearly best friends Wes and Dani don't always agree but they would do anything for the other. Their banter is fun and their history is rich. It's not that they suddenly fall in love, it's that they finally realize it. Both afraid of ruining the incredible friendship but miserable without each other, I just loved them together. Better together, happy together, they were fun to watch.

    When you're looking for a book to just enjoy for a few hours, then this is the one to grab.

    Winner!!! I was not ready for it to end. Cindi's ability to pull you right into Wes' family and Dani's emotions is brilliant. These are two characters that are meant to be together forever! Loved every second of this snarky, fun romance! A definite must read.

    As someone who believes that falling in love with your best frie

    As someone who believes that falling in love with your best friend is the best thing ever, I almost feel as if Falling for Her Fiance' was made for me. I'm always quick to jump into books with this particular plot angle, and I can happily say that Cindi Madsen nailed it.



    To make this scenario really work, the story needs a believable reason for the characters to fake an engagement, and it works perfectly here because Wes and Dani have been best friends for years. Wes, who's been recently dumped, wants Dani to attend his sister's wedding with him to keep his family's pity at bay. Dani, who desperately needs a promotion in order to support her mom and abuela, needs Wes to help her through a couples-oriented work retreat. He needs her; she needs him. It's a win-win, right? Dani and Wes truly love one another, as friends. When romantic feelings start to surface, though, the situation becomes complicated. And cute. And awesome.



    Not only does Falling for Her Fiance' have a fun, romantic plot, it also has two great characters that I quickly fell in love with. Dani is a "guy's girl". She is funny, sarcastic, cute, and can play a mean game of basketball. She's been hurt in love, and a bit hesitant to jump back into the scene. She's the best friend Wes has ever had. Wes is...well, he's pretty freaking dreamy. He had a great personality: funny, smart, and charming; is adventurous, and he cares for and treats Dani so well. It probably doesn't hurt that his physical description fits Bradley Cooper and I read his lines with that lovely voice in my head. Hubba, hubba.


    Everything about Falling for Her Fiance' worked for me. I laughed. I got all teary-eyed. I begged my family to leave me alone so I could read non-stop. I wanted that happy ending, and boy, Cindi Madsen makes her readers earn that ending. This is the third book of Madsen's I've read and I can say she is an expert at witty banter, charming characters, and stories that grab my heart and leave me with a smile.


    Falling for Her Fiance' is another great book from Entangled Bliss.

    "She accepts that you're part of my life or she's not a par

    "She accepts that you're part of my life or she's not a part of mine."




    Falling For Her Fiancé is everything I love about the Bliss line. This book is heartfelt, playful, and real. It's one of those book where you adore the characters and love watching them crash and burn into love. I couldn't get enough of Falling For Her Fiance and when it was over I totally wanted more!




    I absolutely love that our main character, Dani, was the exotic looking girl that is athletic and fantastic at being "one of the guys". That has always been me. I've always just been "one of the guys" and got along with guys way more than girls, so I was definitely able to relate to Dani in that sense. Then on the other side is super adorable, super hot, I'm-in-a-band-and-fly-helicopters... Wes. Wes is everything you could want in a guy. He's playful, hot, caring... I mean I would have jumped on him in a second! Plus with these two characters, we get dual view points which I absolutely love getting into the different characters heads! And, there are other characters through out the book that I loved as well... especially Wes's family. There were so many times that they plus Wes and Dani had me literally laughing out loud.




    Through out the book there were so many times when I wanted to hit Dani and Wes on the head and tell them to kiss and make babies already! Yet, watching them discover love along the way is what makes it all worth while. Every couple has struggles and these two have definitely been through the ringer. There are so many awe moments in Falling For Her Fiance, but that's not all. There are laughs, struggles, and overall a brilliant book that you will not be able to put down. I absolutely adored this book from the moment it started. If you're thinking about giving this one a shot... go for it!  Whether you love contemporary, love romance, or just want a book that will make you smile... this book will do it for you!

    Falling for Her Fiance made me laugh and smile while reading it.

    Falling for Her Fiance made me laugh and smile while reading it. I could really feel the friendship between Dani and Wes, and when they started feeling more for each other, I could feel that too! The chemistry between them grew and grew and I was cheering for them to figure it all out. This a fun, romantic read with great characters.

    Falling for Her Fiancé features one of my favorite types of roma

    Falling for Her Fiancé features one of my favorite types of romances: best friends who turn into more. This was super sweet, but it really tugged on my heartstrings. I felt the achy longing of the characters intensely.

    Dani and Wes have been best friends since college. They are super close and know just about everything about each other, a fact that usually bothers anyone who dates them. I know if I had a boyfriend with a super close best-girl-friend, it would bug me. I'd be worried, because often if you're close on an emotional and mental level with someone of the opposite sex, it turns into more than "just friends." And that's exactly the case for Dani and Wes even if they don't recognize it for themselves....yet.

    Circumstances present that make it "necessary" to fake an engagement. Dani has a company retreat and Wes has a family wedding. Dani has lived in a different state for some time, so they're both shocked when they find they're so affected by each other's presence, when they meet again. Dani is reminded how gorgeous and magnetic Wes is, and Wes is equally stunned by Dani. Here's one of Dani's reactions:

    "His bed. All those muscles. Heat rose to her cheeks and she could feel her pulse steadily climbing. She couldn't seem to look away from the tattoo on his side. The thick black ink formed a tribal sun that morphed into a swirled shape with hints of a beak and wings, like a bird soaring away from the sun. She'd seen it before--she'd even been with him for one of the two sessions it'd taken to get it--yet her pulse was still climbing as she took in the way it cut off right where the V of his obliques led to his low-slung jeans."

    Gotta love those low-slung jeans! ;)

    So you know the song and dance. They each steal glances and breathe each other in, secretly admiring one another. Yet, neither wants to spoil their friendship by admitting how they feel. *bangs head* The longing they feel and won't admit really got to me! It was achingly bittersweet, and I just wanted to yell at them: "Just tell him/her, why don't you?!!" The chemistry and tension just rolled off the pages.

    Cindi Madsen brilliantly crafted a story full of longing romance, and sizzling attraction. It's sure to satisfy the romance cravings of any junky. I can't wait to see what Cindi comes up with next!

    Cute story

    I really liked the relationship between wes and dani. The book at some pretty witty banter that kept me entertained. It is not a heavy book, good for a light read. It ended really abrublty though, it seemed like the author just reached a page limit and decided to wrap it up leaving some unaswered questions that seemed pretty important.
