Neither is looking for commitment. Even if they haven’t seen each other in a decade, and Daisy still hates Liam for standing her up for prom, a fake engagement and wedding is a perfect arrangement between two people who aren’t looking for love. As they go on “dates” to purposely run into family members, they discover they still have a lot in common, including attraction. Just as it starts to look like this fake relationship could turn real, they get into an accident. Liam blames himself for hurting Daisy again, and disappointing her family. Liam and Daisy must face the past to create a future.
VERDICT Desai’s sophomore novel (after The Marriage Game) will have readers laughing, with family dynamics and personal growth rounding things out for an enjoyable read.
