Their fake relationship is a twist of fate.
Sabrina Cassidy believes in fate. So when her fiancé breaks off their engagement, she’s convinced they’ll get back together eventually. But fate was not on her side when it brought Jack Brenner into her life—and work. Frustrating, gorgeous, and cocky, Jack has an offer that Sabrina can't refuse. Not if it means getting the life she’s always imagined.
Despite being one of the town’s most eligible bachelors, Jack has a reputation that’s working against him. He has to convince his father—and his company’s board—that he’s ready to settle down if he wants a promotion. But convincing Sabrina to be his fake girlfriend turns out to be the easiest part. What he didn’t count on was their intense attraction and how easily their lie would escalate. Sabrina’s still hung up on her ex, and Jack will never settle down. But fate has other ideas…
I really enjoyed this book, from start to finish! I've never read anything by Jennifer Shirk, so I wasn't sure what to expect from her. What I found was an author who knows how to create a complex story where both of the main characters are realizing that what they thought they wanted might not be what they imagined.
Sabrina's fiance wants to take a "break" from their relationship but Sabrina is sure that they are meant to be, especially after her visit to a psychic. Jack needs to show his father & the board that he can settle down and be responsible. When they decide that they can help each other reach their goals things get a lot more complicated (and more fun). I was not a fan of Sabrina's fiance, at all, and I was annoyed that she didn't see anything wrong with his "break" or that he was always with a gorgeous redhead. She seemed desperate to get him back & I just wasn't a fan of that. I loved Jack from the very beginning & wish that Sabrina would have realized how great he was sooner!
