Review: Her Fake Engagement by Gigi Garrett

No artists, no smokers, no men with beards… Manhattan real estate broker Lottie Langerman feels confident that if she follows her long list of dating rules, she’ll meet The One and her life will unfold exactly as planned. Everything changes when her best friend decides to throw a fake bachelorette party—just to see what all the fuss is about—and Lottie reluctantly agrees to play the role of bride-to-be for a night.
Faking an engagement turns out to be more fun—and trouble—than Lottie could have imagined. Not only does her dream man think she’s taken, but Lottie keeps running into bearded Brooklyn jewelry designer Tyler, who breaks every single one of her rules...yet manages to get under her skin like no one else. Soon, Lottie finds herself at a crossroads where she must decide: Play it safe—or ditch the rules and follow her heart?

The cover for Her Fake Engagement is so flirty and fun, it originally drew me in.  The story itself is fast-paced enough (and kind of predictable enough) to keep you engaged.  

Lottie Langerman has rules about whom she dates.  She has a couple of good friends -- one of whom is married with a baby -- who balance out her OCD moments.  When Elsa May suggests a fake bachelorette party, with Lottie as the bachelorette, things get a little too crazy for the rule-making Lottie.  

This story wasn't deep, and the argument between Lottie and Elsa May seemed a little contrived, but this novella was a good way to step away from the real world for a couple of hours.  Despite Lottie's rules, we know she's going to end up with Tyler, and I was 100% okay with that.  

[A very special thank you to St. Martin's Press and NetGalley for providing me with an ARC of Her Fake Engagement.]
