Review: Fiance for Keeps (West Side Romance #3) by Gail Chianese

Tired of working long hours with no one to come home to, ER doctor Denise Saunders accepts a chance to compete on a reality dating show. But there's only one person she trusts to review the contract—attorney Brody Nichols, the man she left at the altar five years ago. Needless to say, Brody is floored. Unable to convince her to opt out, and unwilling to stand by while she risks getting burned by the spotlight, he can only think of one way to protect the woman he's never stopped loving.

Denise expected some surprises on Finding Mr. Right, but she's beyond shocked to meet the last contestant: Brody. She doesn't know whether to feel punk'd, pissed, or relieved. Yet as a series of hot hijinks and dueling bachelors ensues, Denise can't deny he's The One—and always has been. She knows she'll have to come clean about their past to the show's other contestants—and to Brody. But once she tells him the real reason she played the runaway bride, Brody may be the one to walk. Is honesty a risk she's brave enough to take?...

Terri's Thoughts

I received an advanced copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.  The expected publication date is April 26th, 2016.

This appears to be the third in a series however I have not read the others and it did not impact this story.  I must admit that I am thinking about going back to read the first two.

Why you ask?

This is a story that appeals to the guilty pleasure side of me.  I try to avoid trashy reality TV, and I have no idea who the reality TV stars are but I am a huge closet fan of the Bachelor.  I find it is a social experiment which puts people at their worst and I can't seem to stay away, or judge or just purely be entertained.

This story is based on the same premise.  Denise is the star of a Bachelor type show with multiple guys trying to win her heart, or 15 minutes of fame.  I was drawn in right away.

Then you add Brody becoming a contestant because he just can't walk away?  Swooning hearts everywhere.  Talk about fighting for the one you love.

With that in mind this story took me on a quick and fast journey where I the troubles of my everyday melted away and I got to live in the lives of Denise and Brody.  And I enjoyed it!  While no real surprises were on hand, there was simply entertainment and romance.  A perfect combination!
