Linc Blaise has himself in a bind. When he interviewed for a job at a small conservative university, he lied when he told them that he was engaged. Now they've asked him to present a paper at the university...and bring his fiancee. It seemed impossible to come up with a bride-to-be on short notice, until he noticed his neighbor, Daisy Flattery, charming her way out of a sticky situation. Daisy agrees to make over her flamboyant self into a quiet conservative fiancee for a couple of days. But soon the couple of days turns into a marriage of convenience for Linc and Daisy.

Cute romantic comedy with two likable characters. I didn't want to sit this book down and finished it in a couple of hours. Anyone who likes Crusie's humor will enjoy this book. My score: 4.5 Stars.

Lincoln is a total stick-in-the-mud and seriously OCD. Daisy is a flighty artist who furnishes her place from thrift shops and garage sales. They couldn't be more different if they tried but I guess opposites do attract as once Linc started talking to Daisy he couldn't stop. Of course, Lincoln had nothing go to say about Daisy until he needed her help to get a job. Then his tune changed real fast as she just grew on him.
Linc is an ass but by the end of the book, I found that I liked him because he changed just for Daisy. It's always fun to watch a man fall in love against his will.

This is a typical Jennifer Crusie story. If you like her writing style, they you will like this one too.

I had a lot of fun with this book- I found the characters much more sympathetic than the ones in Crusie's very, very similar Strange Bedfellows, and I liked the enjoyable-but-realistic way that the characters were able to grow (plenty of compromises, false starts, and- after sticking with each other in spite of their plans and doubts- a happy ending).

I enjoyed this book and it was good for light weekend reading, but it was not my favorite book by Jennifer Crusie. I appreciate that she was going for straightforward romance, but it felt like only the main character (Daisy) was even remotely fleshed out in any way -- everyone else was a caricature or a non-entity to me. It's still a fun quick read and if you're a fan of Crusie's work you'll recognize her sense of humor.
