Product description

Product Description

One building, two would-be owners and a family feud that spans several generations: all relationships have their problems.

Andrea de Villiers can’t lie to save herself. But when developer, Matt Mahoney, buys the building she and a friend have established as a safe house in the Melbourne CBD, she decides that protecting The Shelter is more important than her aching heart. She will confront Mr Mahoney, and she will emerge victorious. There are no other options.

But Matt has other plans for Andie, and she soon finds herself ensnared in a web of well-meaning lies and benevolent deceit. To protect the building and the families that depend on her, Andie agrees to play the part of Matt’s fiancée, and play it convincingly.

But lies soon bleed into truth, and what was once a deception starts to feel all too real. Can Andie accomplish her goals and protect The Shelter, without losing her heart to the charming Irish developer?

This is a sweet love story with a hectic pace that kept me reading pretty much from start to finish - allowing only for the interruption of life.

Both Andie and Matt have their own deadline-dependent agendas and I was dying to know who'd have to give way or modify their desires to make things work between them. Of course, there was always the question of whether and when Wrong Matt would become Right Matt...

Set in modern-day Melbourne, it has a mix of Australian and Irish flavour, like a fresh-pulled Guinness next to hot, barbequed prawns.

Yes, it has a Romeo and Juliet type feel to it, with the historic family feud that still taints the present-day descendants, but Engaging the Enemy is a whole lot more than that. After all, it's not about innocent teenage love - it's between two adults who know a bit about the dark side of love and life, and have seen the consequences when both go bad.

A wonderful afternoon read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Aussie City Romance 18 September 2014
By Jenny Schwartz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
There's an Irish hero in this Aussie romance and he's gorgeous. I'm keeping Matt ;)

Susanne Bellamy has a lovely readable style as the story zooms through a lot of emotional drama, both between Matt and Andrea, and between each of them and their families. A forced/fake engagement is one of my favourite romance tropes -- although I'm generally not a big fan of books where the main characters fib. A lot of misunderstandings and deceptions (for the best of reasons) have to be sorted out in a tangled plot that Susanne handles deftly.

The setting -- Melbourne -- shines. So if you're looking for an Australian romance with a city (and not rural) setting, this is the one!

*Disclosure: Susanne is a fellow Escape Publishing author, but I decided a while back that if I only reviewed books by people I didn't know (as in spend way too much time social media chatting with), I'd miss out on sharing a heap of great books.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved this story!! 4 August 2014
By Simone Cooper - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
‘Engaging the Enemy’ ticks all the boxes for me – strong, likeable characters, great conflict, both internal and external, and great sexual tension. This is a story with layer upon layer of emotion and drama, and misunderstandings that lead to more conflicts that kept me turning the page as I wondered how our hero and heroine Matt and Andie were going to overcome the many issues between them. The characters are richly described, the story is true to life, as are the characters who spring forth from the page – the Irish developer with the heart of gold, and the feisty red-head who’s on a soul searching mission to prove herself, while trying to resist the charming ways of the sexy Irishman because he's her enemy. While there are mistruths and lies on both sides, the motivations/ reasons for this are very understandable and believable, based on the circumstances and what they believe of each other. This story engaged me from the beginning and kept me hooked right until the end! Susanne sure knows how to tell a great love story and brings richness and vividness to her stories, and depth to her characters who are believable and easy to love, and the settings are authentic and well described. I loved the premise of "One building, two would-be owners and a family feud that spans several generations: all relationships have their problems". I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to read a wonderful love story where the characters really have to work hard to overcome their obstacles with each other and what's happening in their lives, in order to get their happily ever after.

4.0 out of 5 stars Smart, sweet and sigh-worthy romance! 20 September 2014
By Jen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Engaging the Enemy was a really enjoyable read. Andie de Villiers was a sweet heroine - with a bit of emotional baggage to sort through - but I really loved her heart-of-gold and the way she fought for what she believed in i.e. saving The Shelter a refuge for women and children in inner city Melbourne. The Irish hero/come property developer, Matt Mahoney - whom she sees as a major threat to her plans - was really all kinds of gorgeous; and his accent was just well...swoon-worthy! Even though Engaging the Enemy was essentially a sweet romance, there was a definite dash of spice during Andie's and Matt's interactions - the forced engagement trope really added to the push-pull between them. In fact, the great chemistry between the hero and heroine really made the story for me. I also really enjoyed the fact that the story was set in inner city Melbourne (not too far from home for me) and Susanne did a great job in recreating the vibe of this wonderful city when Andie and Matt were out and about during the story. I look forward to reading my stories by Ms. Bellamy!

This is a heartwarming sensual story that is set around an old building in Melbourne Australia that has been the cause of a few problems over the years between two families and now Andrea de Villiers is fighting the new owner Matt Mahoney to keep this building that is now used as a shelter for abused families. Andie is a caring but strong woman and Matt is caring as well but he needs to have the building empty of tenants and this starts a journey to a HEA that will have you turning the pages as Matt and Andie come to terms about truths and let themselves fall in love after the tangle of planned lies that does not sit well with Andie. I really enjoyed this one :)
