 The Engagement Plot by [Phillips, Krista]

Krista Phillips


Can Hanna and Will Find True Love amid the Bright Lights of Reality TV?
Perfect for the fans of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette!

Six months ago, William stole Hanna’s heart and shattered it in front of millions of people on a reality TV dating show. And now the big-wig CEO is back on Hanna’s home turf in Minnesota and wants her to forgive him? Fat chance of that. But life is swirling around faster than snow in a blizzard, and despite her objections, teaming up with William seems like the only option to rescue her reputation.
William has never regretted anything more than the day he gave that ill-fated interview for the reality show, The Price of Love. But while he can’t change the past, he’s determined to fix the future. He just needs to convince Hanna to forgive him—and pretend to be engaged with him. Simple, right?

When the media erupts with even worse accusations, teaming up and pretending to be engaged seems to be the only way to salvage their reputations.  Despite the media frenzy that swirls around them, an attraction neither of them can fight off begins to surface. Could this love run deeper than a scandal, or will old wounds tear them apart once and for all?  When all seems lost, it’s only with help from above that Hanna and Will may find their happily-ever-after.

 You will smile, laugh, be a bit sad and a bit frustrated.  As you turn the pages, your mood will change and then change back again.  We all like those reality shows such as the Bachelor/Bachelorette.  This book is just that with even more.   When the reality show ends, can Hanna and Will pick up the pieces and move onward with their lives, either together or separately?  The author gives us two characters that have been very well developed and you could picture them as being someone you know or even someone close to you.  There is an underlying lesson to this book.   We can't always put the blame when something goes wrong, entirely on another person.  It takes two to make things work and it also takes two to share the blame when things go wrong.  It was nice to see that the characters were adult enough to see that maybe they could have made better decisions, not only for themselves but for others.  It's something we all should realize.   We can't always blame everybody else when we make wrong choices.   The author also presents the Christian theme where Hanna keeps to her beliefs instead of caving in to pressure. This isn't one of those books that preaches religion.  It just has a good Christian theme with values and morals.  Thus she gained the nickname, Holy Hanna.  It's fun and interesting to watch the characters grow and mature throughout the book. The author also presents how you can change your life and still hold on to what you strongly believe in.   This book is very well written, strong and realistic  characters that grow.  It has it's reflective moments but it also is fun and light reading. If you like clean reads with characters that are realistic than try this one.   It's not a heavy read, just easy and light.

I received a copy of this book from Barbour Publishing and voluntarily decided to review it.

I would give this book 4  STARS.
