3.5 stars

Fiancé for Keeps was a good read with an interesting plot and well developed characters.
It held my interest from the first page to the last and I was left with a smile on my face.

Overall Fiancé for Keeps was a lovely, entertaining and sweet contemporary romance.

Thank you Kensington Books - Lyrical Shine via NetGalley for the advance copy.

I received an advanced copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. The expected publication date is April 26th, 2016.

This appears to be the third in a series however I have not read the others and it did not impact this story. I must admit that I am thinking about going back to read the first two.

Why you ask?

This is a story that appeals to the guilty pleasure side of me. I try to avo

This is my first book by Gail Chianese and it wouldn't be my last. I thoroughly enjoyed the journey of Denise & Brody.

The description was intriguing - what can be more romantic than a workaholic lawyer, who is also the ex-fiancé of the workaholic Denise, become part of a reality show to protect his love, who has decided to find her Mr. Right through the show?

The chemistry between Brody and Denise was good ... I loved how he always looked out for her and how Denise trusted him to look out for he

I got this book from net gallery for an honest review.

Denise is a workaholic doctor, and Brody is a lawyer. They nearly got married 5 years prior and recently hooked up again at a wedding. Their attraction and feelings for each other is evident however, lack of communication and the ability to fight for their relationship is lacking on both ends. Both are angry with each other for various reasons therefore, when Denise is chosen to appear on a reality show called Mr Right, she jumps at the chanc

I have to admit I’m a little torn about this second chance romance, because while for the most part I found it a quick read, and I always love a bit of reality TV mayhem in my romance, I also had a few problems with the romance itself that stopped me from completely enjoying it.

I really like Brody. He’s a hardworking, all-around good guy, and I feel like Denise treats him really badly in this book. He actually doesn’t do anything wrong, except fail to chase after her when she continues to run aw

Sometimes a little mindless TV is exactly what I need for some much needed stress relief. In my never-ending quest to clear my brain of life's daily pressures, I watch The Bachelor/Bachelorette reality TV series. So it was only natural for me to request Fiance for Keeps by Gail Chianese, a novel that closely resembles some of the themes and dalliances that occur on this very popular TV show. This is a fun and entertaining story that I read from cover to cover in less than a day. No doubt about i ...more

Loved this one. I'm a sucker for a second chance story and this is definitely a good one! Denise Saunders called off her engagement to Brody Nichols days before the planned wedding. They were both workaholics. She as a doctor, him as an attorney. There was never any time for them so even though she loved him very much she put an end to their very long relationship. Now after a moment of complete craziness she knows he's the only one who can help her. She's signed a contract to appear on a realit ...more
This is a second chance romance for a lawyer and a doctor. Since they were young Brody and Denise had been together. WHen they finally decided to get married things didn't go as planned. Brody was starting his law firm and Denise was working hard as an ER doctor. They never had time, she left and called off the wedding because she knew things wouldn't work out adn couldn't go through with it.

Now five years later she's ready to settle down. However a few months ago she had a weekend with Brody a

Got this as an ARC from Net Galley for an honest review. Really enjoyed this heart warming story. Denise left Brody at the altar 5yrs ago, even though she still loved him. Now she needs his help. Brody has never loved anyone other than Denise & he never will, so when she goes to him for help he decides to help but also make sure she's safe & that he's the only one for her. Their ups & downs are many with challenges & a secret that might decide whether they actually make it or not. Definitely rec ...more

This is my first book by Gail Chianese, and I found it very entertaining. Denise and Brody were very interesting characters and I enjoyed this second chance romance. The book has it all: angst, conflict, pain, love and great romance. The characters were well written and I enjoyed reading this story

I was given an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest and independent review.
Sweet romance but lacked substance. Neither of the main characters are able to express truly how they feel about each other so they seem to go round in circles.
