Book one in the New York Times and USA Today bestselling humorous contemporary romance by Denise Grover Swank. 

Megan Vandemeer meant to tell her parents about her broken engagement, but a month and a half later she finds herself boarding a plane home to her wedding. Having stretched avoidance to its limits, it's time to come clean--a terrifying prospect since her mother is sure to blame her rather than her cheating, emotionally frigid ex. A couple of drinks and two Dramamine later, Megan finds herself spilling her sob story to the tall, dark, and handsome stranger in the seat next to her.
With only one week left to save his business, Josh McMillan boards a plane to Kansas City in a last-ditch effort, leaving the details to chance. An unexpected answer is delivered in the form of the beautiful brunette beside him. Though she’s completely loopy, her honesty, openness, and humor charm him. So when she passes out before landing, he helps her off the plane--a good deed that leads to a colossal misunderstanding. Her parents assume he’s her fiancé. In a twist of fate, the mix-up might help Josh save his business, so he plays along, figuring he can help Megan too. All he has to do is stage a public break up convincing enough to appease her mother.
Josh is only supposed to be a substitute groom, but the more time he and Megan spend together, the more their pretend engagement starts to feel real…and the less they want to break it off. Can a relationship that began as a farce turn into happily ever after?

    Quirky characters, typical wedding planners nightmare. Thoroughly enjoyed this story. Just the right amount of tension with sub characters playing their part within the plot that keeps you turning the pages. Quite delightful and I would definitely recommend the read.
  • Many laughs

    I fell for this book hook, line and sinker! Absolutely loved it! Fell in love with the characters- Josh, Megan, Grams, the list goes on. Even developed a soft spot for Knickers 😂 I highly recommend reading this book! I'm about to move on to the second in the series - The Player, which tells Blairs story 😊 Enjoy!
  • Would make a great movie!

    Loved it! I can see Anne Hathaway as the main character, with Meryl Streep as the mom and Betty White as Gram! Need to find someone with an amazing patootie for the male lead. look forward to more of your books 😄
