Fiance by Fate by Jennifer Shirk



Synopsis:

Sabrina Cassidy believes in fate. So when her fiancé breaks off their engagement, she’s convinced they’ll get back together eventually. But fate was not on her side when it brought Jack Brenner into her life—and work. Frustrating, gorgeous, and cocky, Jack has an offer that Sabrina can't refuse. Not if it means getting the life she’s always imagined.

Despite being one of the town’s most eligible bachelors, Jack has a reputation that’s working against him. He has to convince his father—and his company’s board—that he’s ready to settle down if he wants a promotion. But convincing Sabrina to be his fake girlfriend turns out to be the easiest part. What he didn’t count on was their intense attraction and how easily their lie would escalate. Sabrina’s still hung up on her ex, and Jack will never settle down. But fate has other ideas…

My Review: 4 Stars


After losing her parents in a car accident, Sabrina is passed from foster home to foster home. Growing up with no one to love her, she eventually closes her heart off. She does everything she can to not get hurt. But deep down she still hopes to find love, get married and have a family someday. So when her fiance suggests they "take a break", she sits back and patiently waits for him to come back to her. Little did she know that fate had something else in store for her. 

Jack has the reputation of being a playboy and getting whatever he wants. So you can imagine his shock when his father tells him the National Sales Manager position he has his eye on won't be his until he cleans up his act. How can his father do this to him? Doesn't he know that Jack would do anything for the family business? How will he ever be able to prove to his father that he'll eventually be able to take over the company if the position goes to someone else? 

Sabrina and Jack are thrown together for business but soon realize that they can help each other with the current problems in their lives. All they have to do is fake their relationship, making Sabrina's ex-fiance jealous and prove to Jack's father that he can change. But what happens when their fake feelings turn into real feelings? Will they continue on with their original plan? Or will they allow fate to step in and push them towards their happily ever after? 

I enjoyed the relationship between Sabrina and Jack. They progressed from enemies, to friends, to more. I found myself cheering them on from the very beginning. I do have to say that there were times I wanted to shake some sense into Sabrina. If a guy treated me like her ex-fiance treated her, I would be long gone with no look back! He was a loser with a capitol L! 

Jennifer Shirk has done it again. I have enjoyed all her books I have read so far. I can't wait to continue on with this series! :) 

And now for my casting... what do you think?
