Emergency Engagement by Samanthe Beck

Book Description

Glass artist Savannah Smith expected a marriage proposal for Thanksgiving—just not from her strong, silent, super-hot neighbor. But when misplaced mail and a wayward can of paint lands them in a compromising position right as her family arrives for dinner, they assume he’s “The One” she’s been talking about.
Then his family shows up.
Fate dealt a crippling blow to paramedic Beau Montgomery’s heart, and he isn’t about to put it at risk again. Except, with his mother crying tears of joy over his surprise engagement to the sexy little blonde next door, he can’t bring himself to ruin her “Christmas miracle.”
Somewhere between the paint can to the head and the chaotic family trip to the ER, Beau manages to talk Savannah into being his fake fiancée long enough to survive the holidays.
If, of course, they don’t fall in love first…

Emergency Engagement is the first book in Samanthe Beck's new Love Emergency series.  

Savannah Smith is excepting a proposal this Thanksgiving... only she didn't get it from the man she was excepting it from.  A misunderstanding with her parents extends to her neighbor's parents, has Beau Montgomery asking her to play along until after the holidays so he stops disappointing his parents. 

I don't want to get to much into the detail's of this book, because most of it is dealing with issues Beau has from his past, but I found once you find out the why's of Beau's desire to fake this engagement, the book became kind of dull and predictable for me.  I didn't feel any "heat" or intensity between Savannah and Beau.  I also didn't like the lengths they went to to make their parent's really believe in their lie...

This book was just below "okay" for me. 

Rating: 2.5 out of 5
