All Antonio wants is to cheer up his grandmother enough that she’ll agree to start getting treatment for her cancer, and considering how she always talks about wanting him to find love, he comes up with a bright idea. A fake proposal will lift her spirits, and he can quietly break off the engagement when she’s feeling better. Unfortunately, Riley, his fake fiancée, gets the ring stuck on her finger, and before she can escape Antonio’s office, his grandmother shows up. Now Riley and Antonio must play the happy couple, but eventually, they realize they have real feelings for each other.
VERDICT In Meier’s (Fling with the Reclusive Billionaire) latest, the fake-engagement trope gets a fun twist in this charming story, perfect for readers who love a story with a close-knit family.
