When Alex and Lucy pick out wedding invitations, they wonder if they can be printed in vanishing ink.
Former NFL star Alex Sinclair is a man who has it all–except the votes he needs to win his bid for Congress. Despite their mutual dislike, Alex makes Lucy a proposition: pose as his fiancee in return for the money she desperately needs. Bound to a man who isn’t quite what he seems, Lucy will find her heart on the line–and maybe even her life. When God asks Alex and Lucy to scrap their playbook and follow his rules, will they finally say, “I do”?
I was a little concerned about reading this because it is classified as a Christian Romance. Now don’t get me wrong! I don’t have anything against Christians–I am one–but I don’t like my books to preach to me as I read a story. Even though this book does have a lot of religious talk to it, I didn’t feel as though it was preaching to me and telling me how I should be. It still had the feel of the contemporary romance that I was seeking.
I did feel the book to be a little predictable at times though. It didn’t leave much for the imagination, and that made it fluffy and sweet. Not much suspense really to keep you excited about the read, but one that keeps you interested enough to finish the book.
I liked the characters of Alex and Lucy. Both were great to read about and I loved them together. Not a book I would reread again, but not bad for rainy days when you need a sweet book to read.
Okay book! Perfect for a rainy day! 3 STARS
