Angelle Prejean is in a pickle. Her family is expecting her to come home with a fiancé—a fiancé who doesn’t exist. Well, he exists, but he definitely has no idea Angelle told her mama they were engaged. Tattooed, muscled, and hotter than sin, Cane can reduce Angelle to a hot mess with one look—and leave her heart a mess if she falls for him. But when she ends up winning him at a charity bachelor auction, she knows just how to solve her fiancé problem.
Cane Robicheaux is no one’s prince. He doesn’t do relationships and he doesn’t fall in love. When sweet, sultry-voiced Angelle propositions him, he hopes their little fiancé game can finally get her out of his head. He doesn’t expect her to break through all his barriers. But even as Angelle burrows deeper into his heart, he knows once their seven days are up, so is their ruse.
REVIEWED BY JOANNE
Angelle Prejean skipped town right after her high school sweetheart and boyfriend of 8 years proposed to her in front of all their family and friends. Knowing that he wasn’t The One, she turned him down in front of everyone, and unable to face the hurt in his eyes she leaves to start a new life in New Orleans. She never made it that far though, and ended up in Magnolia Springs, where she meets Sherry Robicheaux and her sister Colby. The trio become friends and Angie is soon introduced to their big brother Cane.
Cane Robicheaux doesn’t do relationships, settling down isn’t for him, not after he saw the fall-out of his father’s affair. He’s happy with the single life and running his restaurant. He is quite taken with Angie though and when she rescues him after a bachelor auction looks like getting out of hand he sees an opportunity to scratch an itch!
Angie needs a fake fiancé. Quick. Oh and he has to be called Cane. She’s going back home for Thanksgiving and a white lie that she told her mother to keep her off her back has escalated out of control. Now the whole family are expecting to meet her fiancé
Feeling like he owes her, Cane agrees to go back to Angies home town and pretend to be her fiance. There’s mutual attraction on both sides and he’s sure this will be the perfect opportunity to get her out of his system.
I loved the chemistry between Angie and Cane, it was obvious that this wasn’t going to be as simple as they both thought and that it was going to take more than one night together for these two. They were perfect for each other. When they were together they sizzled but there’s no sex in this book! It’s strictly fade to black and I would have loved to have seen more of Cane if you get what I mean!
It was a nice quick read, and I could see this as a good rom-com movie, especially the scenes when Cane meets the very large Prejean family!
