This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
For eight years, Evie Rose has managed just fine on her own, running a business and raising her son, Jonah. But when Jonah’s father reappears on the scene, she risks losing everything if she can’t prove she provides a stable family environment for her son. And fast.
After watching his parents love dissolve in heartache, Declan McCormick is single by choice, and has dedicated his life to helping others. So when the super sexy, fiercely independent, Evie Rose asks for his help, there’s no way he can say no.
Especially since she needs him to be her fake fiancée.
After all, anything that means stealing a kiss or two, seems like a good deal.
It’s not supposed to be real, but the longer Evie spends with Declan, the closer they get and not only does it start to look real, it also starts to feel more real than anything she’s ever felt before. The only problem is, Declan only sees her as a project, just someone else he can help. And when everything starts to unravel, tough decisions have to be made, quickly.
Evie will do anything to keep her son, and the life they’ve built. Even if it means closing her heart to something she’s never felt before. Declan didn’t think love was possible, but if he doesn’t open his eyes to see what’s in front him, he could lose the family he’s grown to love—forever.
Once again a sweet, enjoyable read from Ms. Aitken. This veered with a slight skew from the previous story lines, but no worries it ends with the expected HEA. Sit with a nice glass of wine and enjoy.
I received an advance copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
I really enjoyed reading Declan and Evie's story. I have not read the books in the series in order but they are still easy to follow along and Elena does a great job highlighting the back story for the nonessential characters.
I loved, I cried, and I have a new book boyfriend from reading In This Moment by Elena Aitken. Declan is the third born and spends his time traveling the world, setting up projects to help those in need through his company DAR. Evie is a single mom who recently opened the boutique Live, Love, and Lake in Cedar Springs. When the father of her eight-year old son comes to Cedar Spring wanting visitation and custody of him, Evie invents a fake fiancé, Declan. Declan readily agrees to help Evie, as that is who he is, helping those he cares about. These two need to figure out whether or not this engagement is fake or real.
I loved reading this book and had trouble putting this book down. Every time I read one Ms. Aitken’s books I think she can’t write another better than this one, but she does. Each and every time. Each and every book. Elena really knows how to tell a wonderful story, drawing me into the story and not letting me go until I read the last page, wanting more. Her words and stories make me want to live in Cedar Springs with her wonderful characters. This is her fourth book in The McCormicks series, but each book is a standalone story. I am looking forward to the next book in this series and highly recommend this book to other readers.
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
