Just My Luck by Kelley Vitollo
** Goodreads Book Description
Betsy Harris has always known Jace Macnamara was off-limits. Not only is he a close friend, he also happens to be her boss—making him doubly forbidden. Betsy’s too timid to ever admit her crush, nor ‘fess up to the fact that she’s secretly drowning in her mother’s medical bills.
Jace just found out he needs a wife and needs one now. His childhood home—the last reminder he has of his deceased parents—can only become his if he gets married, but Jace, ever the playboy, never dreamed of settling down for real. Neither Betsy nor Jace wants to ruin their friendship when their fake marriage inevitably ends, so they vow to keep things light, professional, easy. But as Betsy comes out of her shell, Jace begins to see his “wife” for the beautiful, caring woman she is. Can he risk their past for a future together?
Betsy Harris always knew that Jace Macnamara was a great boss and a close friend but felt like she would never know what he would be like as a boyfriend or husband. Well that all changes when Jace is forced to ask his her to be his wife so that he can keep the only home that he has ever known. Jace always knew that Betsy had a crush on him but he never expected to see her as anything more but that all changes when their true feelings start show as they continue their "fake" marriage. Jace and Betsy soon find out that there is more to a person than what meets the eye as they continue to get to know each other better.
This book is filled with laughs, tears and even a little heartbreak at times. I think it was a great read and a very quick read. I would say the reason I gave it four stars instead of five would be that the story has been done before in the aspect of two friends start out in a fake relationship/marriage and fall in love. Again it was a great read and I would like to read the other two books in this series to learn more about the other two couples love stories.
If you are looking for an easy read and a book to make you laugh and smile than this is the right book for you.
