Story Overview:
A sexy category romance from Entangled's Brazen imprint...

He needs the kind of rescue only she can provide…

Glass artist Savannah Smith expected a marriage proposal for Thanksgiving—just not from her strong, silent, super-hot neighbor. But when misplaced mail and a wayward can of paint lands them in a compromising position right as her family arrives for dinner, they assume he’s “The One” she’s been talking about.

Then his family shows up.

Fate dealt a crippling blow to paramedic Beau Montgomery’s heart, and he isn’t about to put it at risk again. Except, with his mother crying tears of joy over his surprise engagement to the sexy little blonde next door, he can’t bring himself to ruin her “Christmas miracle.”

Somewhere between the paint can to the head and the chaotic family trip to the ER, Beau manages to talk Savannah into being his fake fiancée long enough to survive the holidays.

If, of course, they don’t fall in love first…
My Review:
Aww, I really loved this book. The set-up is just perfect. Beau and Savannah have lived across the hall from one another for six months, but they've never done anything more than murmur hello's as they pass in the hall. 

But they share a wall. As a result, Beau knows a lot more about Savannah than she knows about him (he doesn't have anything in his life for her to overhear with their very thin walls). He knows that her boyfriend only hit his sex game about one every three shots. He also knows that they broke up last night and that he's sick of her depressing, too loud music. So he heads over to tell her to turn it down, and in a comedy of errors that I loved, they end up engaged. 

And to add to the drama...surprise...their parents are friends and the two of them were close when they were little.

There's so very much to love about this book. Beau's history broke my heart and his reticence for anything close to a life made sense even when I wanted to wrap him up in a hug. Of course, when Savannah heard his story and his reasoning for the lie, she can't tell him no either. She has such an amazing heart and is just a good person. 

She's also an artist. I loved the little glimpses we got to see of her art and her process from the glassblowing to her search for gallery support. She's also had a run of rotten luck lately, and that made me cheer for the two of them even more. 

And I did really like the two of them together. Their chemistry is amazing and even though they both know it's a bad idea, they have a hard time resisting. I liked them individually and together. I also loved getting to see Beau on the job...some great, heartwarming scenes for him at work. I also LOVED Hunter and hope he's getting an upcoming book. Add in that the entire book takes place during the holidays...yep, this book was practically perfect for my taste. 

I highly recommend it and think I'm gonna have to buy a print copy for my keeper shelf.

I received a complimentary copy of this book in return for an honest review.
