I thoroughly enjoyed this story. I laughed, cried, and wanted to punch the evil twin. Oh what a web we weave, when we practice to deceive. What started as a little lie to help her sister, ended up causing Cara’s life to implode. The emotional distress she suffered felt real. Watching love dawn on Brody was very touching. The scenes and event coordinators at the wedding venue were great and the security team was wonderful. Wonderful read!

Frustrating!, LOL!! I loved Cara and Brody’s story! It was frustrating because I wanted someone to stand up to Caitlyn so bad every time she pulled something. But, I also got a kick out of the friendship Cara and Brody shared! This story was sweet and heartwarming and a beautiful HEA!!

I totally enjoyed reading Cara and Brody’s sweet story in A Little Bit Engaged, a heartwarming, sweet romance by Melissa McClone, book three in her One Night to Forever series. Cara and Brody were best friends since childhood and you couldn’t help liking these two genuine characters. Cara was an out of work librarian currently working at a book store while Brody was making his mark acting in Hollywood. Cara’s twin sister Caitlin, an actress yet major drama queen, set-up Brody and Cara suggesting ...more

An excellent book, sweet and fun!

Cara. Sweet, caring Cara is one of life’s givers. Quiet, sensitive, understanding, bookloving, and always there for the people she loves. She has been in love with Brody all her life, but he’s with her very different twin sister. Cara has always played second fiddle to her twin sister, and she doesn’t mind, really. Growing up, Caitlin had been the puppet master with Brody and Cara as her marionettes. That had only worsened as they got older because they both wan

Melissa McClone again knocks it out of the park with this lovely story of love, loyalty and friendship, which can sometimes go astray. Cara O’Neal will do just about anything for her twin sister Cait and their longtime friend Brody. Even pretend to be engaged to Brody, her childhood crush. But the bonds that hold the three of them together are in danger of being severed forever because of Cait’s lies and manipulations.
I so loved Cara and her sweet disposition, even while wanting her to stiffen h

Caitlin is a drama queen in more than just the movies. Brody and Cara had gotten her out of mess after mess. They agree to be fake engaged to help her this one last time. Cara and Brody were very likable characters. I loved Brody's deep concern for how Cara was being hurt because of this fake engagement. One of ...more

Loved this story!! What Cara doesn't do for her twin sister, if it even means having a fake engagement with her high school crush, Brody. Cara's twin sister, Caitlyn and Brody have always been an item in Hollywood, so Cara is a little confused.Soon one lie turns into more lies with the fake engagement and Brody soon begins to rethink his future.

This was a heartwarming clean romance that will have you laughing, crying and rooting for Cara. How I disliked Caitlyn, to treat her sister like she di

Cara and Brody were manipulated by her movie star sister Caitlin into a fake engagement. But Caitlin’s lies didn’t end there as she smeared Cara’s character repeatedly to her public including claiming she stole Brody from her and got pregnant. She even tries to hijack their wedding. I wonder how much of that really was her PR team and how much was Caitlin’s selfish need to get what she wants and be the center of attention. The only good that came from her actions was that Cara and Brody realized ...more

This can't-put-down friends to lovers romance is so beautifully written I felt like I was in San Francisco sharing the touching and emotional story with Cara and Brody as they went through manipulation by her drama queen twin including lies, deceit, paparazzi, surprises and so much more.

Ms. McClone has given us another winner and I can hardly wait for book four in her must-read One Night to Forever series.

A great romantic story full of surprises, heartache, paparazzi, lies, deceit, best friends, and true love. Melissa McClone knows how to write a story that immediately touches your emotions and draws you right into the characters and the story. I could not put the book down and I felt so sorry for Cara O'Neal and what her twin put her through to further her career. I received an advance copy of this book and I willingly chose to write an honest review.

Superstar’s publicity stunt goes awry and drags down her twin and their best friend. There is sadness, envy, pleading, friendship, laughter, love and happily ever after within these pages.
