Ring of Truth
But how does she admit the truth to her wedding-crazed mom? Erin doesn't have time for a relationship. After six years of late nights and mind-numbing assignments as a marketing executive with the billion-dollar Silver Script Ad Agency, she finally landed the coveted Smithson Jewelers account, which means her lo...more
The characters have great chemistry, and that is one thing that I liked about the book. They both have a strong work ethic and are devoted to the things that are important to them.
For me the writing fell a little flat. I had a hard time getting ...more
I crack up at fake engagements and this was no different! I love how they run with the fake engagement and it's huge! I especially love how quickly it changes from fake to real and how a misunderstanding really takes them for a ride! Who would have thought that two Georgians would meet each other in New York City! I would really love to see what happens next!
Silver Script Set Books 1 – 7: Interesting. Heartwarming. Fun to read. Perfect with a cuppa. All the stories involve employees of the Silver Script, an advertising agency, with a gamut of friends and clients. The TOC needs editing: book titles are missing, but the links work correctly.

I enjoyed this cute romance.
Jake is a cowboy aspiring to be an actor, broke, in arrears with his rent when he takes a part-time job at the pound. Her cat escapes when the cleaner leaves her door open. She finds it at the pound, has to pay a hefty fine, but meets the good-looking blue eyed man. Things move very fast from there since both of them have parents arriving woth expectations of finding their adult children involved in romances. To stop their parents pestering them, they agre ...more
This is a very sweet story with likable protagonists. It kept me reading eagerly all the way to the end. I thought it was a little over the top that Erin's mother kicked Jake out when she did as it was clear that he cared & had expended a lot of money and effort to get there. And I was disappointed that Erin didn't do much about it. It didn't make sense that she was so passive about Jake even after she returned home.
Thankfully these were minor annoyances that didn ...more
The premise is a familiar one - boy meets girl, there's an immediate attraction which they use to create a fake fiance scenario for the parents.
Jake and Erin are the couple. There is little character development, and the scenes and dialogue are written in a stilted manner.
The author shows promise. Hopefully future stories will be more engaging.
She is an ad executive. He's an actor working part time at animal shelter. That is where they met when her cleaning lady let her cat out again. She helps him one commercial, but end up do her commercials together. What starts as a lost cat, could end up in love.
This was more of a 3.5 for me. I loved the New York setting, and the chemistry between the two main characters. The writing was a little simple, but it definitely had some cute moments. The premise was a little far fetched, I can't really see someone pretending to be engaged to their parents on a whim. They did have some cute date moments, and of course, Erin and Jake are both hometown characters living in the 'big' city. Erin has fully embraced it, Jake i ...more
9/20/16-Now, that was really cute. I love marriage of convenience books, although this was an engagement of convenience. Really cute, I loved Erin & Jake. I thought Erin's mom went a little overboard after finding out it was a ruse...it takes two to tango. Overall great clean fun.
Moral Note: Clean language, clean romance. ...more
I like a good romance, but there wasn’t much in the line of obstacles in the way for this couple. There wasn’t any development of the characters, so I never felt much of a connection with them. With Jake’s country background, none of that really came out in the rest of the book, except where he goes home to visit. I didn’t feel he was a very strong character, and although I liked Erin and her friend Carissa - I never got attached like I should have. Reviewed by Cyrene
