About the Book:
Derek Sawyer, sexiest bad boy on the racing circuit, is about to land a huge sponsor. The only problem is the oil baron’s daughter wants to make Derek part of the deal. Worried he’ll offend the old billionaire if he rejects his daughter, Derek comes up with the perfect plan—pretend he’s already engaged to his friend Lilly.
Lilly Harmon used to daydream about her childhood crush Derek proposing to her…but not like this. Of course, she just lost her boyfriend and her job, so her five-year plan is already smashed to hell. Pretending to be with Derek might help her get her PR career back on track.
But the oil baron’s daughter won’t give up that easily, and Derek’s parents believe the engagement proves he’s become the son they always wanted.
Money. Family. Love. The truth could destroy everything. And to think this engagement was supposed to be the easy way out.

A Limited Engagement follows the story of two friends, Derek and Lilly. Lilly is best friends with Derek’s sister and has been since she was little. Derek is a superstar on the racing circuit and has gotten himself into a situation where he needs a fake fiancé. Lilly has just lost her boyfriend along with her job. After reconnecting their fake romance starts to blossom, but their chemistry is too good to stay fake forever.
This is the first book in the Limitless Love series from Bethany Michaels, and is the first book I have read from her. In A Limited Engagement Michaels gives us a love story where it’s impossible not to route for the couple. I feel for the situation that Lilly found herself in with her ex, and she is such a relatable character that you can’t help but love her. Derek is the sexiest thing in racing, and also extremely relatable, although he does have some moments where he wasn’t so smart, but come on he’s a guy so that’s to be expected! A Limited Engagement had great pacing, and writing, it unfolded in a slow burning way that still kept my interest. As you take the journey from fake Engagement to real relationship with these two it’s hard not to enjoy the ride. I would most definitely recommend this book!
