It was only meant to be a
little white lie…
Inventing a fake fiancé was an act of desperation for Zoe Montgomery – a knee-jerk response to her horrifying high school reunion! But now that she’s convinced London’s most unattainable bachelor to play the part, her little white lie is spiralling out of control.
Because everyone wants a piece of tycoon Dan Forrester. Including Zoe! Especially once she’s seen the view from his bedroom…This might be a fake engagement, but she’s certainly not faking anything else!
Now the reunion is over, and Zoe and Dan have convinced the world they’re meant to be! But convincing each other? That’s a whole different challenge…

The Reunion Lie, or How to Revisit Your Teenage Dreams
The high school (or for my UK readers, secondary school) reunion. Even now, two and a half years away from my actual reunion (it’ll be ten years since I left in 2016), it feels me with equal amounts of curiosity and dread.
Everyone wants to be the best they can be. Cast your minds back to the day when you sat with your friends, deciding what you wanted to have achieved by the time you were 30. My dream – the rather naïve prospect of being the Poet Laureate, closely followed by the as-yet-unrealised dream of being published – is still something I use as a yard stick. And good grief I want to get there before I face everyone I went to school with.
So on attending her school reunion, Zoe panics when faced with the clique of girls who bullied her so horrifically. All of a sudden it no longer matters that she’s a highly successful businesswoman, as all they care about is dissecting her (currently non-existent) love life.
And so she invents a boyfriend.
Dan Forrester, the unsuspecting man on the end of her scorching kiss, ends up (spoiler!!) proposing to help her save face and the fallout from their fake engagement means that the two of them become closer and closer – in every sense of the word.
I think that one of Lucy King’s real strengths is the way she intertwines her characters’ insecurities with their pasts, resulting in a heroine and a hero with real depth. A delightful read that makes sure that you’re dying for this fake engagement to become real…
