This is a short book, so I knew going in it, it would not have the character development of a 300+ page book. The author just can't do that and move the story along in 180 pages. However I found that I was able to get to know Jake and Beth easily during this story. Their quirks, their history all were presented through the book so the reader is able to get to know them. Yes they get together kind of quick, again this is a limitation of a shorter novel and I didn't have a problem with it. I understood the characters and their motivation. I actually really enjoyed watching Jake and Beth fall for each other and begin to change themselves, not for the other person but as a modification to fit another person into their lives. It was a great story to watch unfold, fireworks and all.
The plot revolves around the characters falling for each other and the problems Jake being a rock star presents. The engagement from the beginning was a great plot device to me and as I mentioned I really enjoyed watching the story unfold. It was fast paced and I finished the book during the evening while my son was at Boy Scouts with his Dad.
I found Famously Engaged to be a heartwarming and fun book. It has interesting characters in Jake and Beth (and those surrounding Jake as well). It has a fast moving plot that made the book an easy read. I was into the book from the first page and enjoyed it to the end. It had conflict, it had sarcasm and joking between characters, it had the spark between the characters and it had some steamy sex. What more do you need?
My Rating: 4.5/5.0
The premise of Famously Engaged made the story sound like a lot of fun. You have Beth Carlise who happens to be a chef, best friend and ex-wife to the groom. Then you have Jake Olsen who is the older brother to the groom's fiancee. All he hears is how great Beth is, so he worries that his sister isn't going to have a wedding. However, she tries to convince her brother it isn't like that, but he still swoops in trying to fix keep Beth from ruining the wedding she's planning for her ex. Seriously, sounds like a lot of fun.
However, I couldn't get into the story. I truly tried. I even put the book down and decided to come back to the story to see if I just needed a break from the story. Honestly, it didn't help. The story had a lot of potential to be a lot of fun. However, you have Jake charging in and taking over a situation where he had no business doing so, because he was worry for nothing. Then you have Beth who just kind of goes with the flow. I think if there was a little more of battle of wills, it might have made the story a bit more interesting. It wasn't till we got closer to the end where Beth finally gets a backbone. Beth was a bit too passive for my taste.
This is just my thoughts on Famously Engaged. If the story appeals to you, you might want to checkout Famously Engaged for yourself. I'm just saying it didn't appeal to me in the end.
