I must say, the circumstances under which Luke and Kennedy met were rather unusual. I couldn't believe it! The uniqueness of it was so refreshing, and it set the tone for the whole book and had me hooked.
In typical Kylie-fashion, the story flowed so smoothly and had a perfect mix of humor and emotion. Oh, and the love scenes were SMOKING HOT.
I liked how I got to catch up on characters from previous books in the series (though each book is a stand-alone and can be read, in my opinion, in any order).
All in all, the story was great, as expected, and I can't wait to read the next book in the series!!!
***I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review***
It's hard to write a review for this fantastic book without giving away spoilers, so here goes...
I didn't expect the rush of emotions to hit me so hard when I read this book.
One moment I was cackling, then roaring with tears in my eyes I laughed so hard. Then just as quick, the tears changed to ones of pure emotion.
Luke Reynolds is a wonderful character. Even with his over-confidence, his tough, arrogant exterior is broken down by one Feisty Ken Ward.
A woman, who's tough herself, cracks under Luke's persistence and she shows her vulnerable side. She cares for her family so much that she puts her own life on hold for them. Making sure that they have everything they need before she allows herself any room to breathe.
The two characters are a perfect match, and when they come together it's with fiery, explosive passion.
This is one book you seriously do not want to miss.

I loved how Luke finally won Kennedy over. Their fake engagement definitely brings to pass the ultimate ending of all endings.
I was very emotional off and on throughout the book. I enjoyed all of the laughs and the sad parts equally. Luke and Kennedy are truly suited for each other.
Who was your favorite character and why?
I don't think I can honestly say whether or not I preferred Luke or Kennedy more. I got equally irritated with them both. Though if I really think about it, I got a little more irritated by some of Kennedy's attitudes than I did of Luke. I had genuine sympathy for Luke several times. Though for both of them I say they dug themselves in deep where Bently and Candy were concerned.
Have you listened to any of Charles Lawrence’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Yes, I have listened to him through the whole Clover Park series. He does an outstanding job on each book.
If you could rename An Ambitious Engagement, what would you call it?
I think it would be something like this...The Swallowing of One's Pride.
LOL....I wouldn't change it though.
Any additional comments?
I loved reading this book. I hope everyone else who reads it, loves it as much as I did.
This latest addition to the Clover Park series in no way disappoints. (In fact, I already called Dibs on Luke)This book, as well as all of the others, are stand alone books but if you are like me, you will be getting the rest in the series to read about the other Studs in this town.
This is the story of Luke and Kennedy (Ken). They are both trying to get the business of the same client, Bentley, and meet playing golf with the client. Kennedy announces that she and Luke are engaged and Luke goes along with it. They are then invited to spend Labor Day weekend at Bentley's Cottage with him and his wife.
Luke is a real go getter at work but he is also sweet and caring with a great sense of humor....and a master in the bedroom (swoon). Kennedy is actually an assistant going behind her boss' back to get the deal. She is taking care of her family physically and financially since her Dad is recovering from a bad accident.
The attraction between them is palpable.....how are they going to get through the weekend keeping up the pretense of the engagement? And how will they both keep their real feelings from each other?
A definite Must Read!!
This is book eight of the Clover Park series with Luke and Kennedy. Luke is a financial planner and must land a big client to not be cut during his company's upcoming downsize. He finally get s meeting with the eccentric billionaire and his competitor, Kennedy, at the golf course. Kennedy needs this client, her first, to prove she can be more than an assistant. Not only that, she needs the money to help support her family. As the eldest, she needs to help with her father's medical bills and the needs of her younger siblings. Kennedy confirms to the client, not only are they a couple but they are engaged. Only one of them will be chosen as his financial planner.
Both Luke and Kennedy have strong personalities. Kennedy's fake-fiance game goes too far and the stage is set for disaster. She is kind and you cannot help but feel for her and her family's predicament. Luke has depth but likes to hide behind his money slick facade. A great story to fake it until you make it!
Luke, age 32, is one of the Reynolds brothers of Clover Park. We only know him thru Sunday dinners at the parents house, he is the finance brother. THe story starts with him on the way to a golf game with a client where he has an altercation with another driver who it turns out is also golfing with Luke's would be client Bentley and Candy, a newlywed couple. The driver is Ken or Kennedy, a 23 year old assistant at a rival financial firm who is after the same client as Luke. Kennedy decides to fake an engagement to Luke so they can try and get Bentley and Candy's business and thats when the fun starts. Luke and Kennedy are so cute together and fun. Kennedy is not your average 23 year old. Her family is in big trouble and she is just trying to land this account to save her family and she goes all out.
Her and Luke are so fun together and this story is so much fun. I loved when they pretended to be engaged. I loved the family Sunday dinners and I loved when Luke tried to be there for Kennedy's whole family. They fall in love and Luke is all in and has to convince Kennedy to date him and that was so fun watching him never give up on her.
I loved that this book had so many different aspects to their relationship and I loved seeing so much of the book taking place in Clover Park. I have enjoyed this entire series and this book had so much fun and energy that it was an amazing read. Luke and Kennedy are my newest favorite couple in Clover Park.
