What’s a little fake engagement between best friends?
Danielle and Wes have been best friends since college, so when Wes needs a date for his sister’s wedding and Dani needs a partner for her company’s retreat, they devise the perfect plan: a fake engagement to get through both events unscathed. Adrenaline-junkie Wes can prove to both his ex and his family that he’s well and truly moved on, and serious-minded Dani can prove to her boss that she’s worthy of the promotion he seems to only want to give to a family-oriented employee.
But amid the fake swoons, fake kisses, and forced proximity, neither expects the very real feelings that develop. There’s nothing more dangerous than falling for your best friend…but what if the landing is worth the fall?
Falling for Her Fiancé features one of my favorite types of romances: best friends who turn into more. This was super sweet, but it really tugged on my heartstrings. I felt the achy longing of the characters intensely.

As someone who believes that falling in love with your best friend is the best thing ever, I almost feel as if Falling for Her Fiance' was made for me. I'm always quick to jump into books with this particular plot angle, and I can happily say that Cindi Madsen nailed it.
To make this scenario rea... ...more

I love best friends to more stories, and I've already read and loved read Cindi Madsen's YA book, All the Broken Pieces,so I jumped at the chance for us to be part of the tour for Falling for Her Fiancé (back in the day :)).
I absolutely adored this book!
I love the whole falling in love with your best friend trope but it has to be pulled off in a certain way or I'm just not buying it, especially when you're adding a fake engagement to the mix. I do not enjoy fake engagements.
Cindi Madsen pulled it off.

Started yesterday. So proud of my friend Cindi Madsen's sweet, fall in love with your best friend, romantic comedy! I've not stopped laughing or smiling yet. I know this author delivers on the romance in all her other work, but with this story she's in her element with humor, a sassy heroine whil... ...more
I love a good adult contemporary romance. They always have the fun, the chemistry, and the heartbreaking situations that make reading so enjoyable. This book was no exception. I loved Dani and Wes. They are best friends afraid of crossing the line into something else, but both can feel their want... ...more
Oh, I love it when best friends start feeling something more towards one other. And they all go skittish over it thinking 'but he/she is my best friend!', then it starts to get awkward, then they act like there's nothing there and try
and epically failing,IMO to act normal again, then at some poi... ...more
Can I just say that Cindi Madsen is BRILLIANT! She has the corner market on funny and romance. I read this book in one sitting because I could not put it down. Who can resist best friends falling in love with each other when they least expected it. I mean friends are friends and we don't cross th... ...more
Loved this book so much! Fun and funny, Falling For Her Fiance made me smile like a goon and laugh out loud. And the swoon factor is very high with this one :) Great read and can't wait for more! ...more
I don’t think my poor tummy ever felt so many things before. Also, I don’t think I ever got so many weird look because of reading in public. Getting teary eyed and then smiling like a fool in love in the beach is bound to do that, though.
Falling For Her Fiance is a book full of romance, comedy a... ...more
Yay for best friends who become something more!! I absolutely adore stories where the main characters don't seem to see what's right in front of them. Cindi Madsen draws a picture of two people, both struggling to put heartbreak behind them, who are completely devoted to one another. The BEST of... ...more
"She accepts that you're part of my life or she's not a part of mine."
Falling For Her Fiancé is everything I love about the Bliss line. This book is heartfelt, playful, and real. It's one of those book where you adore the characters and love watching them crash and burn into love. I couldn't get... ...more
I really enjoyed this story. It wasn't anything new as far as story goes, we've seen the movies and read the books where friends get together and pretend to be engaged for functions and end up falling in love but even so I still found this story highly entertaining.
I enjoyed both of the characte... ...more

5 stars - A book that reminds me why I love to read!
Do books ever call to you? They do to me. Guess that makes me weird but this is one of those books that called to me. I started this new review policy that says I'll accept your book if I want to read it only. When this book was offered to me,... ...more
This was the perfect 'friends to romance' and 'fake romance' book, combining two of my favourite romance tropes . I loved the relationship between Dani and Wes and I loved that the author explored their pure friendship before things began to change for either of them. Even after things shifted fo... ...more
This was a cute friends to lovers romance. I liked that the sexual interest crept up on the h/h slowly and that they were both surprised by it. The only thing I didn't like was the fact that they both kept avoiding actually talking about being attracted to each other, leading to them doing stupid... ...more
Loved this book from the very start. A fun - although at times, frustrating - romance read about how fake love and friendship can turn into real love and a Happily Ever After. I'll admit I was a little impatient for Wes and Dani to wise up and admit their feelings for each other, but I loved seei... ...more

It's often difficult to figure out a plausible reason for a contemporary romance to use a "fake engagement" trope.
Falling for her Fiance double-dips, it combines the "fake engagement" trope with the friends-into-lovers story. Now that one is usually a LOT e... ...more
