New York Times bestselling author Julia London proves that there’s no insurance against falling in love.

Single mother Kyra Kokinos spends her days waiting tables, her nights working on her real estate license, and every spare moment with her precocious six-year-old daughter, Ruby—especially when Ruby won’t stop pestering their grumpy next-door neighbor. At first glance, Dax Bishop seems like the kind of gruff, solitary guy who’d be unlikely to offer a cup of sugar, let alone a marriage proposal. But that’s exactly what happens when Ruby needs life-saving surgery.

Dax showed up in East Beach a year ago, fresh from a painful divorce and looking for a place where he could make furniture and avoid people. Suddenly his life is invaded by an inquisitive munchkin in sparkly cowboy boots—and her frazzled, too-tempting mother. So he presents a practical plan: his insurance will help Ruby, and then they can divorce—zero strings attached.

But soon Kyra and Dax find their engagement of convenience is simple in name only. As their attraction deepens, a figure from the past reappears, offering a way out. Can Kyra and Dax let go so easily, or has their sudden engagement become something more?

Couldn’t put it down Ruby “Coconuts’ and her entourage of characters is absolutely fun reading. Rooting for Dax and Kyra the entire book.

#BRILLIANTLYHILARIOUS I have been reading Julia London for years, and she’s always been at the top of my list of favorites, so getting the opportunity to read her newest book had me dancing it out all over the house! And once again, she didn’t disappoint me in the slightest! Suddenly Engaged was a very entertaining story that I couldn’t get enough of! Let me break it down in a very basic way, so no spoiler douchery comes out, and then I’ll get on with all the dramatic feels. Kyra Kokinos graduated college, and…

Book Gannet says:

So Much More Than a Sudden Engagement This contemporary romance between a rushed-off-her-feet single mother and the grumpy man next door is much deeper and more involved than the carefree title and slightly misleading blurb suggest. Oh, there is an engagement of convenience, but not until well into the second half and so much else happens both before and after that the engagement itself is a minor part at best.
