My Rating: 5 GOLDEN STARS

Summary:
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 organization.

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 fiancĂ©e 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.

My Review:
“I love it when God takes a big stirring spoon to plans. That’s when life gets good.”
Can that quote be part of my review? Because I feel as of that quote pretty much sums up this story perfectly. I can say nothing but praises for this book. It's romantic, adventurous, agonizing, burst out laughable, witty, sarcastic (who doesn't like sarcastic), and most of all heart warming.  It's everything a book should be.
“Loves me so much she sometimes has a hard time expressing it.”
Lucy is one of those characters that is immediately relatable. Her involvement with her friends, and the care that she has for the women that she takes under her care is endearing. Her passion for her shelter is evident and the lengths that she'll go to keep it open and running is inspirational.
"Give him all your confusion, your worry, you past. And just let it go. D not go one more day living in fear of defeat. We are more than conquerors."
Alex is one of the gorgeous men that are unattainable, until you can get his attention. And that is what Lucy does. Alex has his own reasons for this facade and they are completely valid, to his understands. He can be adamant in letting people into his life, but the about turn that he takes in this lovely book is full of awe.
"I will praise you because I have been remarkably and wonderfully made."
The two most enjoyable parts of this book would definitely be the witty banter between Lucy and Alex (they really could be mistaken for a married couple) and Lucy's and Alex journey through their faith. However, those AREN'T the only enjoyable parts in this book, the whole book is from its first page of despair, through all the nerd references that there could possibly be, to the ending of peace between all the characters.
"I don't care about the other women, Lucy. Just you, Just like you are."
So read this book, and who knows, this book might change you, I know it has with me.
