Overview

The first book in a humorous contemporary romance from New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, Denise Grover Swank.

Megan Vandemeer meant to tell her parents about her broken engagement, but a month and a half later she finds herself boarding a plane home to her wedding. Having stretched avoidance to its limits, it's to come clean--a terrifying prospect since her mother is sure to blame her rather than her cheating, emotionally frigid ex. A couple of drinks and two Dramamine later, Megan finds herself spilling her sob story to the tall, dark, and handsome stranger in the seat next to her.

With only one week left to save his business, Josh McMillan boards a plane to Kansas City in a last-ditch effort, leaving the details to chance. An unexpected answer is delivered in the form of the beautiful brunette beside him. Though she's completely loopy, her honesty, openness, and humor charm him. So when she passes out before landing, he helps her off the plane--a good deed that leads to a colossal misunderstanding. Her parents assume he's her fiancé. In a twist of fate, the mix-up might help Josh save his business, so he plays along, figuring he can help Megan too. All he has to do is stage a public break up convincing enough to appease her mother.

Josh is only supposed to be a substitute groom, but the more time he and Megan spend together, the more their pretend engagement starts to feel real...and the less they want to break it off. Can a relationship that began as a farce turn into happily ever after?

This is the first book I have read by this author. I enjoyed it, but due to the fact it probably wasn't proof read or spell checked, it was hard to keep focused. Some of the grammar was pretty terrible, too. Will have to think about reading another book by this author.

Oh how I enjoyed this book!!!! The story of Megan and Josh is a fun, fast paced read. I kept wondering how much more craziness could be injected into their tale of the substitute groom and impending wedding. Just when I thought it would calm down there was another twist that kept me reading. I loved how there was an initial attraction between them that blossomed into more as their time together progressed. I pulled for their relationship from the very start. The book had drama, comedy, emotional revelations, mystery and some super hot sexual tension. If you want a great read, feel-good story with a HEA then this is your book!!!.

More of the usual night in shining armor errorotica about hot sex with a stranger ends in "happily ever after" the prepsrerously thin plot disintegrates in the vividly grahic sex. Borring

Don't understand the other reviews. This book was okay, but nothing great and kind of a lame story.

This book was pretty interesting although a bit predictable. There are some steaming yet tasteful sex scenes which i found entertaining.
