Falling For Her Fiance by Cindi Madsen

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?

Meet the Author


Cindi Madsen sits at her computer every chance she gets, plotting, revising, and falling in love with her characters. Sometimes it makes her a crazy person. Without it, she’d be even crazier. She has way too many shoes, but can always find a reason to buy a new pretty pair, especially if they’re sparkly, colorful, or super tall. She loves music, dancing, and wishes summer lasted all year long. She lives in Colorado (where summer is most definitely NOT all year long) with her husband and three children. She is also the author of the young adult novel All the Broken Pieces.

    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. 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.
