About the Book:

Derek Sawyer, sexiest bad boy on the racing circuit, is about to land a huge sponsor. The only problem is the oil baron’s daughter wants to make Derek part of the deal. Worried he’ll offend the old billionaire if he rejects his daughter, Derek comes up with the perfect plan—pretend he’s already engaged to his friend Lilly.

Lilly Harmon used to daydream about her childhood crush Derek proposing to her…but not like this. Of course, she just lost her boyfriend and her job, so her five-year plan is already smashed to hell. Pretending to be with Derek might help her get her PR career back on track.

But the oil baron’s daughter won’t give up that easily, and Derek’s parents believe the engagement proves he’s become the son they always wanted.

Money. Family. Love. The truth could destroy everything. And to think this engagement was supposed to be the easy way out.

What do you do when a socialite has her eyes set on you? Well you get a fake fiancé, right? A Limited Engagement by Bethany Michaels was a fun, quick read about finding love when you least expect it.

Lilly Harmon had a plan. A five-year plan where she would be working her dream job and on the path to marriage. Seemed sensible. Then it all went to hell. Now she has no job and lost her fiancé. Lilly, even with her plans and rules, was a fun and very likable character.

Derek Sawyer was the hometown boy that made it big. A sexy bad boy taking the racing circuit by storm. He was set to finally have his dreams come true, but he needed to finalize a huge sponsor. A sponsor that would change everything for him, but the deal included the billionaire’s daughter who wanted Derek for herself.

I liked Derek. He has a carefree attitude, but due to his family history, he had no intentions of ever falling in love, much less marrying anyone. But he needed a plan, and Lilly, his little sister’s best friend may just be the solution. The plan? A pretend engagement. One weekend, seal the deal and move on.

The only problem? Plans never go as intended! Now Lilly and Derek are finding themselves lying to their friends and family as well. It is with good intentions, but even good intentions lead to hurt. And now they are fighting an attraction and need that should be avoided at all costs. Derek knows Lilly is the forever kind of girl, but Derek only does in the moment.

And when all good things come to an end, people get hurt. Will Lilly and Derek realize what they could have in time? Or will all the lies catch up to them and destroy any chance they have? I enjoyed this story. Two friends that have known each other for a long time, the hot racing driver and the girl next door.
