Review: Mr. Fiancé

Mr. Fiancé Mr. Fiancé by Lauren Landish
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

If you've read Anaconda, then you've already met Brianna's bestie, Mindy, who appeared to be unfiltered and unapologetic. If you haven't read that book (and you really should if you haven't), get ready to meet and fall for her and Oliver just as I have.

Mindy's mother is getting married and is adamant that Mindy attend. She also expects her to bring her dear fiance, Harold, the man she's been engaged to for a year, as her plus one so everyone can get the chance to meet him. However, there's a slight problem with that. You see, Harold doesn't exist. Rather than admit to her lies, Mindy enlists the help of Brianna and her husband, Gavin, in order to find her a stand-in. Gavin finds his friend Oliver to fit the bill. It doesn't hurt that Oliver owes Gavin $500,000 after a poker loss and doing this one favor will wipe out that debt.

Both characters... actually I enjoyed ALL of the characters in this book. Mindy's family was... interesting... and I found them as open and honest as she was (well as she was most of the time). It was hard to stomach Mindy's weakness and her need to lie, but her coming-of-age moments where worthwhile and gave her character true dimension. I also liked watching Oliver and Mindy fall for one another and how, for the most part, they lived in the moment and didn't try to hide or fight it.

I'm guessing Mindy's sister, Roxy, may be getting a story of her own. That's my prediction and I think it would be fun because that girl is a riot!
