Review:: Falling For Her Fiance by Cindi Madsen

Falling For Her Fiance by Cindi Madsen
Publisher: Entangled Publishing {BLISS}
Format: Kindle
Review by: Mary

Danielle and Wes have been best friends since college, so when Wes needs a date for his sister’s wedding and Dani needs a partner for her company’s retreat, they devise the perfect plan: a fake engagement to get through both events unscathed. Adrenaline-junkie Wes can prove to both his ex and his family that he’s well and truly moved on, and serious-minded Dani can prove to her boss that she’s worthy of the promotion he seems to only want to give to a family-oriented employee.

But amid the fake swoons, fake kisses, and forced proximity, neither expects the very real feelings that develop. There’s nothing more dangerous than falling for your best friend…but what if the landing is worth the fall?

I love stories like this. But, I'm always left feeling like it isn't a plausible situation. Why would someone pretend to have a fiance? How could they fall in love so fast? They just aren't realistic. EXCEPT for Falling For Her Fiance! Whoa you guys. I had freakin' butterflies in my stomach the whole way through this book. You know the kind that build up before you are about to get kissed? They just lay low and flutter away until they can't be contained and literally erupt from inside you. I almost gave myself a stomach ache!

This story works. Dani and Wes are best friends. Have been since college. Relationships don't ever work out because of their friendship with each other gets in the way. Stories like this leave me feeling why hasn't something ever happened between them? Well, in this story it makes complete sense! Finally! Something did happen between them in college. They shared a kiss one night. Dani got freaked. Wes backed off. They didn't push it for fear of ruining the friendship. Makes sense right? Of course they felt something! How could they not?!

I love their friendship and it actually made the situations of "pretend fiance" really believable. They already knew everything about each other. They needed some help and they were there to help each other out when the time came. They didn't have to fake chemistry or push anything for the sake of appearances. It just happened. The stolen kisses were nice and had me reeling inside! Just grab her and kiss her already, for real!!! I was on fire. The romantic tension is unbelievable. Seriously you guys. 

I love this story! The characters were fun and believable. The romance was hot when we got there and  the heartaches and love made my heart burst with feeling. Falling For Her Fiance is a book I will be re-reading again. Sooner rather than later. 

ps It is totally cheap so you should buy it. 


  1. I read the blurb for this, and thought it sounded really cute - after seeing how much you like it, I think I might have to give it a go next time I want a happy romance :)


    1. You have to Ailsa! It is totally cute and will pick you up from your next reading funk.

  2. This is one of my absolutely favorite romance plots!! (I mean, come on!! How can you not love it??)

    You've convinced me! I *NEED* to read some Bliss!

    1. Jac, seriously. BLISS is your kind of thing. They are quick and easy to read. Cleaner but not lacking in the romance. Falling For Her Fiance might just be my very favorite. I've gone back to it twice to re-read my favorite parts already! Really fun.

  3. I think I will buy this. I like the whole fake marriage/marriage of convenience and then they fall in love sort of storylines.

    PLUS! That cover is so adorable.

    Also, I like that you said the chemistry doesn't quite feel forced or anything.

  4. This was an adorable love story that had me rooting for Wes & Dani the whole book through! They're such sweet loveable characters you can't help but love them. It was a great easy, happy read! I can't wait to start Act Like You Love Me! Cindi is definitely a crafty and skilled romance writer. She just knows how to pull you in.
