What's a little blackmail between friends?

The black sheep of the old-money Rosemanns, advertising executive Marcus has made his own way in the world--and done extremely well for himself--but his family is still pressuring him to join their investment firm and settle down with a quiet, unobjectionable girl.

Which is why the sexy Rose Verma is the perfect date for his family's charity ball. A bleeding-heart lefty from the wrong side of the tracks, Rose has never met a stray dog she didn't love or a polka-dotted mini-dress she couldn't rock. Marcus has enough dirt on Rose to "convince" her to play along. And if he lets it slip that they're engaged, all the better.

But all's fair in love and blackmail, and Rose is ready to play a few cards of her ownů

From the first page, you get the sense that THE ENGAGEMENT GAME is going to be a fun, lighthearted--and have I said FUN?--read. And it meets expectations and more!

Marcus Rosemann's looking for a woman to bring to his family's charity ball, an inappropriate woman, to be exact. And he's found it in Rose Verma, who's the opposite of what his family would want in him. Yet, he finds himself unexpectedly charmed and captivated by her. However, he doesn't do relationships; surely, a fake engagement doesn't count?

Rose Verma is an unconventional heroine--quirky, lively, definitely unexpected! She'll live on in my memory long after all the other heroines have faded. Because she's different from the others I normally read about, I thought I wouldn't like her, but surprise! I not only like her, I love her! Marcus is more run-of-the-mill billionaire playboy heroes, but Ms. Holiday twisted things up a bit by making him Jewish and Rose an Indian. While this could be a multicultural story, and culture did play some part and highlighted their differences, it wasn't really a conflict between the hero and the heroine. They were sssssooooooooooo hot together, especially that scene against the mirror. My kindle almost burst into flames. Hot damn.

The first of the 49th Floor Novels series that I've read is the 2nd book, the story of Dax and Amy, and it's because I enjoyed it so much that I looked for this next book, and I'm happy to report that I love this book just as much. Fun, romantic and the perfect book to spend an afternoon. Don't miss this!
