Review: Fiancé for the Night by Melissa McClone

She needs a fiancé—for only one night.

Cassandra Daniels' parents refuse to accept that she doesn't need a boyfriend to be happy. To stop their meddling and matchmaking, Cassandra creates a fictional fiancé, a man who sounds so unlike their carefree and unconventional daughter that her mom and dad want to meet him for dinner, immediately.

No problem. San Francisco is a big city. Finding a fiancé won't be that hard.

All Troy McKnight wants is a beer after a long day at work. But when a pretty blonde asks him to dinner and wants him to pretend to be her fiancé, Troy agrees to help. Playing make-believe could be fun, especially since he gets a free meal, and he'll have a great story to tell.

When one lie leads to another, however, the fake engagement spirals into real wedding plans. Cassandra and Troy must stop the madness and put an end to their charade. But what if her fiancé for the night is the perfect husband for life?

My Review: 

What started out as a little white lie soon spirals out of control.  But in the end, every fib was well worth it.

Black sheep of the family, Cassandra Daniels needs a fiancé for a family dinner.  And she needs him fast.  She finds Troy McKnight at a brewpub and asks if he would help her out.  After some persuasion, he agrees.  It is a free dinner with a beautiful woman.  But after dinner, they find out Cassandra's family is in town for the weekend and they want Cassandra and Troy to stay with them.  When Troy finds out Cassandra's father is the well known venture capitalist Dixon Daniels, he knew it would be to his advantage to stay the weekend to get to know Dixon better.  Just knowing him might help Troy get promoted to partner at his company.  But what will happen when the truth finally comes out?

My heart went out to Cassandra and what she went through with her ex and her sister.  So I could understand why she lied about being engaged.  And even though Cassandra and Troy were complete opposites, they made a good team.  This was an enjoyable sweet romance.  It shows how love can be found in the most unexpected way. 

My favorite quote from the book:
Being with her drove him crazy, but being away from her made him feel on edge. He couldn’t win.
