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…
Get ready for this new book from Samanthe Beck in your own way but here is how I did it. I loaded my copy on my kindle, snuggled under my covers and grabbed a box of tissues. That’s right this one has elements in it that pull at the heart strings. Samanthe combines two people that are very different and one doesn’t want anything to do with relationships. Beau has been hurt big time when he loses his wife and daughter in a car crash and has no desire to re-live that kind of pain. Savannah is a free spirit that has plans to see the world and make a name for herself in the art world. When a misunderstanding from both of their parents has them “engaged” Beau asks Savannah to keep up the act since she is leaving soon anyway. The “white lie” seams harmless enough until the wedding minded mommas get started planning. The dress, the venue and date all are planed and Savannah starts feeling guilty. Beau just wants his family to stop warring about him; the problem starts when against his will his heart becomes involved. Feeding the attraction between them is one thing but when Beau starts thinking about Savannah leaving and it bothers him? That’s a little too complicated for him and he wants out! Savannah needs a man that chooses to be with her and when she realizes Beau is still too stuck in the past she will risk more than her heart if she says goodbye. What happens will bring tears to your eyes and give the skeptics a run for their money.
I loved how Samanthe made the situations real. The emotional stunting that takes place in Beau’s life is felt in the pages. You will want to reach through the story to give both Savanna and Beau a hug. Yet the heat between them makes the glass fog up and I swear my kindle started to smoke! The way this story is blended shows that not all love stories are full of fluff and passion. Real life can be messy and complicated but if you are willing to fight for each other than each day you are together means you have won the battle. Please get your copy today because if you don’t you will regret it, trust me!
