BLOG TOUR - Just A Step Away by Flora Roberts

The Book
Release Date: 20 November 2013 

Lanie Wagner has it all—from her great apartment in the heart of Los Angeles, to her amazing career as the city’s most sought after wedding planner. Yes, ladies and gents, Lanie is riding high on life. 

But there's just one problem. When her cousin called her and asked Lanie to plan her wedding, she knew it was going to be a disaster. She hasn’t been back home in over five years, and her family is out of control crazy. All of them.

With her cousin's wedding looming, Lanie has to make a pivotal decision. She needs to find a date; a boyfriend to be exact. She needs to find some poor bastard willing to pretend to be madly in love with her for an entire week. 

The only downside is Lanie is convinced that no one is pathetic enough to take her up on her offer. 

Lucas Sparks, aka Sparky, is the epitome of every woman's wet dream. And he knows it. Born into a family of wealth and privilege, Lucas has never wanted for anything. Well, that was until he was given the opportunity to share an apartment with Lanie, the one woman that has never fallen at his feet and begged for all that he could give her. 

The same woman that acts like he doesn't exist. 

Even all the money in the world wouldn't be enough to make his humble roommate fall in love with him. When he is given the chance to spend a weekend away in the country with a woman he fantasizes about on a daily basis, he’s determined to do whatever is necessary to go along for the ride, even if it means pretending to be her man.

But playing pretend can be a dangerous game, and considering the circumstances, Lanie and Lucas just might have signed up for more than they bargained for.

My Opinion  4 STARS
** I received a free copy of this book from the author for an honest review**

Holy crap balls.  This book had me howling with laughter with all the antics with Lanie's family and with Lucas.

Lanie is a wedding planner who is going home for her cousins wedding but single Lanie needs to take a boyfriend.  Here enters Lucas her sexy roommate and the man who has loved her for the last few years.

I do think however that the relationship stuff moves far too quickly and we miss out on some of the emotions for that.  But i did love the strong characters that the author created.  A fun read that brightened my day.
