Book two of Montgomery Manor
Socialite Rebecca Clare gets through life one vodka tonic at a time. Emotionally shattered after her best friend's death, she's cast as the latest pseudo-celebrity screwup and hounded by paparazzi 24/7. So naturally, the cameras are rolling when she gets into a scrap at a club (he started it). But then an unexpected white knight steps in.
Playing caretaker isn't Jake Montgomery's usual role, but Becca is his stepmother's little sister. As they bond over their bad reputations, they find they have a lot more in common than the spotlight. When a photo of the nightclub incident goes viral, it raises protective instincts that Jake never knew he had. What better way to save Beccaand the familyfrom scandal than by claiming he's her fiancé?
Becca agrees to play along, never expecting a fake engagement to feel so right. But she's vowed never to depend on a man for happiness; how can Jake convince her that falling in love is worth the risk?

I actually enjoyed this book. I could not put it down.
I read the other two books of the Montgomery family adventures. I'm looking forward to book 3. Tamara Morgan is a new author for me and I enjoyed her writing in books 1 and 2. LA-TXN
When I Fall, Tamara Morgan Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews Second in the Montgomery Manor series, though I haven't read book one. I thought this sounded a fun read, and it was but....it was a bit “middle of the road”, lots of happy but not much on the downside, and regular readers of my reviews will know by now that I want to wallow in the grief, feel that the characters are really upset, before I get to the happy ending. Here I didn't feel that, there was a bit of a hiccup but that all. Becca was more than her socialite, drunken, flighty appearance suggested, and still grieving deeply at the death of her friend. She's a shame to her family, a blight on the name with her constant press appearances, and yet when we get to see her, to know her, we see its not all her fault...Then there's Jake, seems like a rich playboy, never doing anything much other than gambling and spending money. He's at a loose end as his family have frozen his accounts. By chance he teams up with Becca and pretends to be her fiance to stop her family from sending her to rehab once again. He knows – as he was there – that the recent incident wasn't her fault, and rehab won't help her but hinder her recovery from grief. She's not the drug addled person her family seem to think she is. He needs somewhere to stay so it works for him too. Then things get moved along quickly, and before they know it the families are arranging an engagement party. Jakes fallen for Becca, but he's having trouble getting her to let go and trust in him. It's afun read, light and frothy but somehow I never really felt there was much depth to the story. If you want a light, easy, well written read this will work, but for me I need a bit more. Stars: three, a decent read but light on drama and emotion for me. ARC supplied via Netgalley and publishers.
