This was an okay story. The plot is weak and trumped up in order to make the storyline work. Ethan's reputation is being raked over the coals by the tabloids by all of his former exes (models, debutantes & celebrities). He's left a long trail of breakups in his wake of conquests....and he decides the best way out of his tabloid hell is to become engaged to a pretend "dream woman". Unfortunately for MacKenzie Wyatt and unbeknownst to her, he call's an impromptu press conference and announces HER to be his fiance'....aaaaaaaaaand her nightmare begins. That was the gist of the whole story. Ethan paying her a sum of money to be his fake fiance' to get the tabloids off his back. The plot is a storm in a teacup...very little controversy. And MacKenzie's capitulation from hate, to severe dislike to tolerating Ethan, to eventually liking him happens all too fast. For how much time this author spent drumming into my head, and expertly conveying and emphasizing (repeatedly).. MacKenzies hate of Ethan...it's just not believable how quickly that hate turns to love. But the writing is good and I liked MacKenzie's character. If you can suspend your belief and just go along for the ride...you'll probably do alright and enjoy the story. I think it's worthy of 3★'s.
He's a closet romantic and wants a woman to want him for him and not his money. It looks like he finally found his match. A woman that wouldn't give him the time of day and the only way he can get her attention is to steal from her chocolate stash and sit in her chair.
Mackenzie has worked for Ethans' company for five years. She's a hardworking employee and the only problem she has is with her boss Ethan. He always drops by unexpectedly sits in her chair and robs her chocolate stash. The man should know never rob candy from a woman. It's an act of war in some countries.
Story had its ups and downs. Ethan really needs to speak to his mother. She loves her son but she could cost him the love of his life. Ethan needs a woman that will stand up to him and kick him in the butt from time to time, not someone who thinks he right all the time.
Just like Mr. Charming, (Ethan), this story will charm and beguile you. Megan Bryce did a fantastic job of creating realistic roles and environment. She took the two most 'Commitment Phobia' personalities in that setting and let the entertainment skyrocket.
Why 4 stars instead of 5?
First, my copy had some editing mistakes and I always take points away for that.
Second is the price. A 180 page read (quickie to me) for $6.99 on Amazon Kindle. It seems a little overpriced. How much is a story that will make you laugh so hard your face and stomach hurts from it worth? Hard to put a price on something that brings that much laughter and amusement into your world.
Some Like It Charming (A Temporary Engagement Book 1)
Although the plot had potential and the main characters had some entertaining dialogues, the book didn't grip me at all. The storyline was completely predictable and remained poorly elaborated until the end. The main characters were shallow and their actions immature and childish. The few subcharacters didn't offer any enrichment to the story line. There were nearly no descriptions in the book, hence it lacked depth and atmosphere. Needless to say the tension between the main characters was non existent, which surprised me a lot, since this was supposed to be the main angle in the plot.
Even if you are fully into escape reading, maybe you should avoid this one.

The best thing i loved about it was the relationship between the two. It was fab. I loved the one liners and the way they both interacted with each other. It made me laugh out loud several times during the reading which made my family look at me like i was crazy. Lol!!! It was so entertaining and i loved their chocolate hunts where the heroine hid chocolate around the office and home and ethan searched for it. It was funny the places she hid the chocolates. This is a story that i intend to read over and over again.
I would love to read a novella or short story about their life after marriage. Maybe have a story about cassandra, the best friend of the heroine and maybe find out whats happening in ethan's life and whether his mum likes his wife.
A fab read!!!
The author's writing style is entertaining, and the content is just hilarious half the time!
The only negative I have in mind is for the sentence structure. She often starts with "And" instead of using a comma in the previous sentence to join it. The flow of those sentences didn't work at all. She also did that with a lot of other sentences, and it was kind of confusing to read them.
Now I am going to have to pay to read another.
I liked both characters from the beginning; the way they bounced insults back and forth and loved it, not taking anything personally. The attraction was there for both of them but they fought against it and in the end she became his way out of the tabloid-attack he was currently under from previous girlfriends.
I liked the relationship build-up: antagonism to sex to proper relationship.
I just really liked it.
