Save the Date by Jenny B. Jones ~ 5 stars + Favorite!

Save the Date
Jenny B Jones

About the book:
You are cordially invited to the wedding of the year with the most unlikely bride and groom. Save the date...and say your prayers.

When funding for Lucy's non-profit job is pulled, she is determined to find out why. Enter Alex Sinclair, former professional football star and heir to Sinclair Enterprises--the primary donor to Lucy's non-profit organizaiton.

Both Lucy and Alex have something the other desperately wants.

Alex has it all...except for the votes he needs to win his bid for Congress. Despite their mutual dislike, Alex makes Lucy a proposition: pose as his fiancée in return for the money she desperately needs. Bound to a man who isn't quite what he seems, Lucy finds her heart--and her future--on the line.

Save the Date is a spunky romance that will have readers laughing out loud as this dubious pair try to save their careers, their dreams...and maybe even a date.

My review:
This is a fun, hilarious read with some powerful messages! I loved it cover to cover. The characters were lovable, and the antics were hysterical. Poor Lucy, she just never got a break! The plot had enough twists and turns to keep me hooked. I read it in one day. This book definitely made it to my favorites list deservedly! I highly recommend this book to readers who like funny books. Another touchdown read (I know, I know, it’s corny) from Jenny B Jones!

Thanks to Jenny B Jones and Thomas Nelson for my free review copy of this book. :)
