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…

Here is my review of her book:

Once again, Jennifer doesn't disappoint.

Sabrina has just been told by her fiance that he wants some space. She goes with her friend to a fortune teller, desperate for some direction in her life. She's assured they will get back together so she determines that she'll do whatever she can to get back together with David. Even agree to pretend to date her work enemy, Jack, the resident playboy. Jack needs to look more settled down to his dad, the CEO of the company to obtain a promotion, so wants good-girl Sabrina to be on his arm. Sabrina wants David to see her with sexy Jack and get jealous. Little does Sabrina realise how quickly her hate for Jack will soon turn to love and little does Jack realise how high his propensity for love actually is. The sparks fly and I love the sparring dialogue between Jack and Sabrina.

This is a beautiful take on the fake engagement trope. The story was gripping, flowed fast and kept me reading when I should have been working.

The characters were lovely - I love the opposites attract scenario, although also, the character arc of the hero was deep and touching. He was gorgeous and very alpha yet not in a hard alpha kind of way - just the right touch of alpha, tease and kindness. I love a man who can tease.

Although we know it will be a happy ending in the end as category romances are, I enjoyed the twists and turns that kept me on my seat to get there.
