Debra Daniels walks into a novelty shop one day and sets her eyes on a colorful box with a handsome man displayed on the front. The front of the box is
tagged "Fiancée at Your Fingertips." It's a pseudo-game designed to fool family and co-workers into believing you have a boyfriend so that they will stop nagging you about not having one at your ripe old age of
thirty. Seems too good to be true, right? It is. Remember the old adage be careful what you wish for?
The made-up man in the box is nothing but a lawyer, which ranks far below a skunk in
Debra's book. Lawyer Logan Alexander shows up in Debra Daniels' life out of the blue weeks later, claiming they have been a serious item for months now. The thing is, Debra doesn't remember ever meeting the man before.
She's convinced that someone is playing a practical joke on her, but when it turns out that they aren't, and that Logan is the real McCoy, Debra is scared out of her wits.
Convinced that he's a stalker, she refuses to leave him alone for a minute with friends and family. And so Logan and Debra spend some "quality" time together
- and the more time they spend together, the more Debra falls in love with this mysterious mythical man.
You've also heard the old adage nothing good ever lasts. As soon as Debra starts falling in love with her "fiancé", Logan is gone from her life. Oh, sure, he's still a living, breathing human being, but
he doesn't remember Debra Daniels at all.
Sound confusing? It is. I read the book twice and could not figure out how Logan showed up in Debra's life.
This book is fiction, but even fiction should sound believable. If you can get past that major detail, the book is quite enjoyable to read.
