Famously Engaged Review

Famously Engaged
by Robyn Thomas
Official Summary:
A chef and a rock star. They couldn’t be from more different worlds…
Rock star royalty’s favorite son, Jake Olsen, couldn’t help but interfere after listening to his future brother-in-law talk non-stop about his ex-wife, Beth Carlisle. Jake decides that the only way to get the groom’s mind off his ex-wife is to give her a fake fiancĂ©.
Before Jake can convince Beth of his plan, he's forced to move in with her to avoid the paparazzi. Their instant attraction makes for a sizzling "first date", but soon Jake’s fame gets in the way and Beth wants out. Too bad Jake's figured out just why her ex is so obsessed with her, and he's afraid he's not going to be able to give her up either.
Now it's up to Jake to convince this chef together they make the perfect recipe.

My Summary:
Jake is a world famous rock star, with a vow to his band to stay single.  The promise is compromised when Jake hears word his future brother-in-law, Brad, is spending a lot of time with his ex-wife, Beth.  With his sister's wedding date approaching, Jake takes matters into his own hands.  Jake has his manager fabricate a story about a wedding lottery, and the winner happens to be Beth.  Before the story hits, Jake flies down to help Beth through the fallout, and keep Brad away.  When Jake arrives, Beth is in turmoil and a famous rock star living in her house and paparazzi on her doorstep is the last thing she needs.

My Review:
My worry with this book was it was going to have a slow start, but you're thrown right in.  Jake is irresistible like rock stars usually are and all the complications that come with them.  Beth and Jake are a whirlwind romance you get caught up in and root for through out the book.  One of the problems with the book was the dialogue was hard to follow at times, like something was missing, or I missed something.  Same thing with the movements between them, it was confusing at times with the logistics.  Other than that I enjoyed the book and it was a fairly quick read.
