The plot was okay and the action moved right along but I didn't like the hero and he irritated me throughout the story. Spa owner Lexi needs two million dollars and Cruz will provide it in exchange for fake engagement with introductions.

The premise stretches belief just a tad--pretend to be engaged for six months to the guy who was your ended-very-badly first time in exchange for two million dollars? Who does that?--and of course you can see the ending coming a mile away, but still it was a fairly decent diversion for all of that. The three sisters and their friend Dana are an entertaining group of characters, and it's clear that the fourth Titan child is going to continue to make life interesting for all of them. I did have serious problems with the whole idea that Lexi had to move in with Cruz for the entire engagement--surely they could have gotten together even without the obvious sexual manipulation?--and I'm still unclear on how, exactly, Cruz seemed to already know that Lexi was in trouble when presumably only the antagonist, Lexi, and her banker were aware of the situation. Still, though, when I don't have any other pressing books to read (surely that day will come, yes? Or maybe not--so many books, so little time, after all) I'll probably give book two in the series a go. ( )

Just too silly for me to engage with the characters at all. The absurd plot is played out by cliched characters spouting unnatural-sounding dialog.

Maybe I'll finish it some day when I'm in the mood for a Silhouette Desire-style read. ( )

I read some of Susan Mallery's books before and i really enjoyed reading them. So is this one to me. It is an enjoyable read with a simple story plot. Lexi and Cruz spent a night before during their teens and both of them could not forget that night before. Hence, when Cruz wanted Lexi to help him to get into her circle of acquintaces, memories of that nigh hovered between them. Lexi have no choice but to agreed to Cruz's demand as it is the only way to get herself out of the financial disaster.

Knowing the story plot, i was anticipating a whole lots of conflict especially for Lexi and it did have lotsa of conflict when Lexi got pregnant. I really felt for her when Cruz rejected her when she told him the news. Cruz was tormented with his past childhood and was of the thought he couldnt be a good father to anyone. And as for the ending, i like the way the author end the story. simple yet meaningful ;) ( )

Book description
Lexi Titan can just see the headlines. All of Titanville, Texas, will be buzzing, and wondering why. Not that she has any other choice. Faced with exactly thirty days to come up with two million dollars in cold, hard cash, she is out of options. Marry Cruz Rodrigues or lose everything—the day spa she built herself, her tyrant of a father’s respect. And the long-standing competition with her sisters for the family business.

The proposal is cold and hard. Cruz has money, success, smoldering good looks—everything but the blue blood needed to become a true member of Texas society. If Lexi agrees to be his fiancée for six months, lending him her famous father’s last name and his snobbish connections, he’ll hand her a check on the spot. And in six months they’ll go their separate ways.

But neither one is prepared for their long-ago shared passion to throw a wrench into what would seem to be the perfect deal…

Even Texas isn’t big enough for this family.
