Derek  - Good Looking, successful,famous and  charming but not someone who does relationships. Derek is trying to buy his father out of his business, he cant forgive his father for what he done to their family even years later. Derek is about to sign for a sponsor that could help him remove his father but he needs a little help with removing the sponsors daughter who has made it quite clear that she wants him. 

Lilly - Her life goals have just slipped away, Richard was not only her boss but her fiance and landing a punch and breaking his nose was probably not the best way to reach her 5 year life plan. she now has no career, no fiance and no idea what she is going to do.

Derek and Lilly have been neighbors since they were little, Lilly has always had a crush on Derek but she knew she was just his sisters friend and neighbor and she would never be anything else to him. 

Derek has a proposal for Lilly, help him with a fake engagement, in the process scare away Serena the sponsors daughter and land him the sponger he needs to but his father out. With nothing else for Lilly to do after loosing what she had she agrees to be his fake fiance. What neither of them planned on was how this would benefit so many people and their family even thought they knew it would all be destroyed eventually.

An enjoyable  read, the story was well written with believable characters. It was easy to see how the future was going to plan out for Derek and Lilly although there are some hiccups along the way. I would of liked there to of been a little more of a fight from Lilly near the end however that is just my opinion.
