Review: The Accidental Engagement by Maggie Dallen

It started as a regular night for New York City restaurant hostess Ivy Sinclair, until a rowdy customer turned out to be world famous playboy Jack Everett. Thanks to the paparazzi, now the world thinks they’re a couple—which couldn’t be farther from the truth. But when a brooding, sexy businessman offers her a simply irresistible proposition…

Uh oh...
Just when cutthroat venture capitalist Daniel Gladwell thought he’d never close the deal with an Italian conglomerate, a simple mistake becomes the perfect opportunity. All he has to do is convince Ivy to pretend to be Jack’s fiancée while on a business trip to Italy to offset Jack’s bad boy reputation. As long as Daniel doesn’t sabotage the plan by claiming the tempting waitress for himself...

Oh yes!
It was supposed to be a business only arrangement. But in the magic of the Tuscan countryside, neither Ivy nor Daniel can fight the attraction building between them. In the world’s most romantic setting, the line between business and pleasure is one that begs to be crossed..

Paperback, 156 pages

** I received an advanced copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.  The expected publication date is November 24th, 2015**

This story was fun for me.  A romance that must be kept a secret?  Of course in these situations it only makes the attraction stronger.  Add to the mix a fake engagement to someone else and let the story begin!

Although this story does not offer any surprises or plot twists, it delivers exactly what it promises in the synopsis.  A secret romance, some steamy scenes and some good supporting characters and scenery. 

Overall a nice way to pass the time!
