Product Description

Getting engaged was supposed to be the easy way out…

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. Since she just lost her boyfriend and her job, and her five-year plan is drastically off track, playing pretend with Derek just might be the perfect distraction from her life

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

Remember, it's just pretend!

This is one of my all-time favorite scenarios: The fake engagement. What makes this story different from the rest is the added dynamic of Lilly and Derek knowing each other since childhood. In my opinion, this familiarity afforded them some liberties, given their in-depth knowledge of each other, that other couples simply couldn't take.

I enjoyed this story because Bethany kept the characters pretty realistic. Of course, there's an element of undeniable temptation when a girl's childhood crush asks her to fake-marry him, but Lilly did an admirable job of keeping her eye on the prize and not letting her emotions get the better of her. For a while.

Likewise, Derek did his best to stick to the plan and stay focused on why they were in this crazy scenario in the first place and not focus on his feelings towards Lilly.

But holy smokes, when their restraint reached its limit, hotness erupted!

I met some interesting characters such as Lilly's best friend and Derek's little sister Shana (I'd LOVE to read her story!) and even the "villain" (although she really wasn't much of a villain) Serena (she might need a story too!)

All in all, I loved reading how their feelings changed towards each other and the revelations that came along with those new feelings. I would definitely read more books by Bethany!

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun! 16 March 2017
By Robin Shawn - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I love best friend older brother stories so I read this as soon as I bought it. Derek and Lilly were a really fun couple. There wasn't any new ground broken in this story but I didn't care. It was well written and fun and I hope to see more books written in this world in the future. My only real gripe was the end. Way too abrupt when clearly there was more story to tell!

5.0 out of 5 stars A charming first romance in a new series 14 March 2017
By Marsha @ Keeper Bookshelf - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Desperate times require desperate measures, and that pretty much is where Derick and Lilly are right now for different reasons. He’s almost landed the big sponsor that he really needs for his racing career to truly take off, she’s just been dumped by a no good jerk of a man who takes away her future and her job. The problem for Derick is that the spoiled, entitled daughter of the possible sponsor considers herself part of the deal – as in she gets Derick for her own, for as long as she wants. That’s not going to happen. While Lilly is revising her five yer plan, majorly, she receives a proposal from her best friend’s brother. Okay, maybe she always had those secret childhood dreams that Derick would see her as the love of his life and sweep her off her feet… yeah, that never happened. What has happened is a proposal from the man he’s grown into, a man with a need for a fake intended bride, for a limited time. She’s probably crazy but she says yes – and the lies begin. Neither thought that this fake relationship would turn into something worth fighting for, right up until they almost lost everything.

A Limited Engagement is a fun, charming and quick read that delivers a solid romance. Derick and Lilly have chemistry between them and their underlying growing romance is believable, even if it is a battleground in many ways. Lies never work out well, especially the ones you tell yourself. Derick eventually realizes just what Lilly means to him – beyond the sponsorship. Watching him discover that forever isn’t a trap to be avoided was enjoyable – I love when a strong, stubborn man finally “gets” it.

If you’re looking for an entertaining romance to get caught up in then A Limited Engagement might be exactly what you’re looking for. I always get an extra kick out of starting a new series, one where I don’t have to catch up later. And this looks like a fun series to follow.

*I received an e-ARC of this novel from the publisher via NetGalley. That does not change what I think of this story. It is my choice to leave a review giving my personal opinion about this book.*

4.0 out of 5 stars Lilly had grown up next store to Derek and his younger sister was Lilly’s best friend- Shana 18 March 2017
By Angel Hatfield - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Lilly was meeting Derek for lunch. Lilly had grown up next store to Derek and his younger sister was Lilly’s best friend- Shana. Derek had been Lilly’s teenage crush. Lilly and Derek hadn’t seen much of each other since getting older with the exception of holidays with their family’s. Derek invited Lily to ride home on his private jet after they had lunch. Lilly didn’t believe Derek was attracted to her but that didn’t stop her from reacting to him. Lilly missed the conversations they used to have. Derek had dreamed of being a big car racer and he was. Derek also made Lilly feel safe in her own skin. Lily had hit Richard her ex fiance in the nose for cheating and he told her she was being transferred and going alone and she lost her job as he was also her boss and that ended her career at Reynolds, Sherman and green. Lilly’s five year plan was also no longer obtainable. Derek’s family was rich before Derek began racing. Derek had issues with his dad because he felt his father had destroyed his family for his business. Lilly loved working in PR but Richard had had said he would let every company near and far know she was a basket case. Derek was having lunch with Lilly to propose she act as his pretend fiance. He needed Lilly to help him then he could get rid of his father in his career and never have to speak to him again as he owned half of the racing team Derek was on. His father had helped Derek get started but Derek still resented him. He needed Lilly in order to get the Thomas Oil deal signed. The billionaire daughter Serena wanted Derek but for more than a fling and Derek only did flings. But if Derek rejected Serena that would mean he rejected her father.Serena was VIP of marketing for her father’s company. Lilly’s whole life Derek had argued with her, teased her, and annoyed her, bossed her around even but he had never complimented her that Lilly could remember but he was complimenting her now. Lilly agreed to be Derek's fake fiance for the weekend but then someone snapped a picture of Derek and Lilly coming out of the jewelry store and posted it online now everyone knew they were suppose to be engaged even their parents and hometown. Lilly and Derek decided to keep the engagement going for a couple more weeks.
I liked this story a lot. I learned something about car racing and all that goes into it so that was interesting. I liked how Derek’s dad was once “ he thought” Derek was engaged to Lilly but also when he let Derek know he wasn’t going to sell his share of the racing team. I loved How Derek and Lilly acted when they knew Richard was at the restaurant made me laugh. There was a lot of things I really liked about this story but for some reason it didn’t completely WOW me would give it a 4.5 if I could. I loved Derek and Lilly together and how Lilly was strong enough to walk away. I also loved how the book ended. I thought the plot was great. I also loved the characters and the ins and outs of this story and I recommend.

Limited Engagement

4.5 Star Review by Kristie K

Bethany Michaels delivers a fun and frisky tale of loyalty, friendship, and lasting love...

Every girl loves a great tale of friends-to-lovers romance, and every one of us has probably bailed on a potential love match because we were too afraid to compromise the friendship. Delving into a great story where the risk pays off, is one of the sure fire ways to bring a smile to my face, and make me wonder “what if”… Limited Engagement is one of these great tales, and had me grinning, and pondering…laughing, and crying…but ultimately it made me sigh in content. The story focuses on Derek Sawyer, pro racer and womanizing bad boy…and Lilly Harmon, childhood friend and stunning beauty with a huge heart, and a sweet innocence. When Derek asks Lilly for her help landing a huge new sponsor for his racing team, Lilly is eager to help…until he tells her he needs a fiancé for the weekend. With her childhood crush rearing it’s head, and her personal and professional life in tatters, Lilly agrees. When things don’t go completely as planned, they find their fake engagement leading down a dangerous path…one that turns hope into heartbreak, and truth into tears. I loved this book! It was written with heart, and included humor and such a sense of fun. I immediately loved Lilly, and Derek managed to sweep me off my feet as well…though there were times I wanted to strangle him! Their playful banter, and easy manner with each other was enchanting, and the true affection they held for one another was obvious and heart-warming. Their chemistry was off the chain, and the race car scene?! Holy hades…hot enough to melt glass. As for the technical stuff, the cover was attractive, the model gorgeous, but I didn’t think it represented the story as well as it could have. The characters were wonderful, and the character development was on point. We were given enough history, and background to give the story depth but not so much it was overwhelming. The plot and storyline were well developed, and thought through. The twists were believable and not overplayed. The writing itself is stellar. Ms. Michaels is a talented story-teller, with a gift for words, and the ability to put them together to form a fabulous tale I thoroughly enjoyed from beginning to end. Ms. Michaels has taken the checkered flag on this one…welcome to the winners circle!

4.0 out of 5 stars From fake first forward! 15 March 2017

Rating 4.5/5
Lily Harmon is having a bad week . . . she’s spectacularly split with her boyfriend, seriously hitting him in the face in the process. That wouldn’t be quite so bad if he wasn’t also her boss. So now forget the wedding plans, time to start looking for another job - and soon, especially as he’s threatening to have her black listed so she’ll not be able to continue her career. On a brighter note, she’s meeting ‘the boy next door’, Derek Sawyer, for lunch. Now he’s the one she had the secret crush on all through her teens but he’s totally out of reach as a highly successful bad boy on the racing circuit. Their friendship has still lasted all these years and now he’s come up with a plan . . . he wants her to be his fake girlfriend to convince the daughter of an oil baron billionaire potential sponsor, Serena, who seems to assume she’ll get him as part of the deal! However, the that lady isn’t easily sidetracked and when news of their engagement reaches their parents they’re all ecstatic so the weekend engagement is lasting longer and getting more real every day . . . .

This is a classic scenario, the fake engagement, but it is given another twist by the couple having grown up together and knowing each other so well. The reactions of parents, friends and neighbours was superb at adding to the pressure by as the two main characters initially endeavoured not to give into their feelings for each other - but when they do, expect fireworks! There are plenty of sparks around and the secondary characters like Shana (Derek’s sister and Lily’s best friend) and Serena just add fuel to the fire!

This is a great read from start to finish and I thoroughly enjoyed reading how the two are so focussed on not taking advantage of the situations but love just has to find a way. It is a sweet yet hot romance that is brilliant to escape into. I look forward to reading more by this author in future.

Many thanks to the publishers for gifting me a copy of this novel, via NetGalley, with no obligation. This is my honest review.
