Fortune's Surprise Engagement by Nancy Robards Thompson


Olivia Fortune Robinson has done some crazy things in her life, but this has to be one of the craziest. She has just propositioned sexy Alejandro Mendoza to be her pretend boyfriend for a week. What's even crazier? He said yes!

They're doing it all for Sophie—or so they think. Liv's cynical view of marriage accidentally convinced her little sister to call off her own wedding, and Liv has to fix things and quick. What better way than to "fall in love" herself? Tall, dark and alpha, Alejandro doesn't seem to mind having Liv on his arm—or in his bed. But when the two commitment-phobes suddenly become faux fiancés, Liv's traitorous heart starts to fall for real… Is Alejandro's far behind?

Olivia Fortune Robinson has had a front row seat to her parents' dysfunctional marriage. It seems that every time she turns around something else comes to light. Despite her feelings on love and marriage, she plans every detail of a Bachelorette week for her sister and sister-in-law to be. When one too many of the signature party drink and a push from her sisters leads her to voice how she really feels, her sister takes it to heart and starts re-thinking her future marriage. Alejandro Mendoza is in town for the wedding and a business deal, but can't keep his eyes off Olivia after he runs into the sisters at the bar. When Olivia's sisters abandon her, he feels compelled to help her with the rest of the round of drinks, then dinner. When Olivia realizes she can't apologize away her comments about love and marriage, she decides the only way to fix it is to pretend she has fallen in love and convinces Alejandro to play along. Alejandro had his chance at love and figures once is enough heartache. Can they act enough like a happy couple to convince Sophie? Is it just an act? Can they trust each other enough to have their own Happily ever after? This was a fun story with interesting characters. Olivia and Alejandro are both successful with strong feelings about love. This was enjoyable, and easy to read, even if you have not read all the other stories about the Fortunes.

4 1/2 STARS! Fun, flirty, and forever! You are in for another memorable ride through the Austin elite when you open the latest Fortunes of Texas: The Secret Fortunes novel by Nancy Robards Thompson! The last trip there, little sis Sophie fell in love and this book brings us her wedding. We see mostly characters that are already familiar to us, but they're always a fun group of family ... we not only see the love of siblings, but a douse of reality with the stories of the not-so-great-example of love they've been shown over the years, and always a big dose of humor when this group gets together! Great characters, a fun continuous plot, and lots of happily-ever-afters! Olivia Fortune Robinson would do anything for her siblings, but this time she might have taken it a little too far! When she inadvertently puts Sophie off on getting married a few days before the wedding, panic ensues! She might have been a little blunt, but how was she to know simply stating her disbelief in love and forever would send her little sister running for the hills? Now she has to fix it ... and fast! Alejandro Mendoza is simply an innocent bystander ... in town for a business deal, and a friend of the family since two of his brothers are married to two of her sisters, but an unknown for sure. When sparks fly at that same disastrous party, Liv comes up with a plan. She'll make Sophie think she was all of a sudden hit by the love bug ... with Alejandro! Tell her sis a lie in order to get her to come out of hiding and go on with her wedding ... sure ... what could go wrong??

Fortune's Surprise Engagement is the next installment in the Fortunes of Texas series. Nancy Robards Thompson has created a family dynamic that continues to enchant, entertain and wondering what will happen next. This is Olivia and Alejandro's story. Olivia doesn't believe in true love because of past experiences with users and losers but also because of her parents' marriage which seems to be a total farce. When she inadvertently convinces her sister to call off her wedding, she comes up with a crazy plan to convince her that true love does exist. Alejandro agrees to play her pretend boyfriend but sometimes fake becomes real. This story is filled with drama, laughs, tears and a lot of love. Great story.

This was a great story. Olivia and Alejandro were great characters. Their fake relationship to try to keep her sister's wedding on track was a bit odd, but they made it work. I loved how considerate and thoughtful Alejandro was through the whole story. He really went out of his way to help Olivia when he really didn't have to. I loved the chemistry between the characters. It was a really great and quick read for me.

I love the Fortune's! It's like the family who will always be there for each matter what! Who does that, pretending to be engaged??? At least she picked the perfect guy for her! I really enjoyed Olivia's whirlwind romance and glad she got her happily ever after! Can't wait for the next story, but a little wary if I will be able to love Ariana... If anyone can write her well, it's Nancy Robards Thompson. Loved this story and can't wait for the next!
