Publisher's Summary

How does one become accidentally engaged? That's what Suzy Curtis thinks when she suddenly finds herself very publicly engaged to handsome Harry Fitzallan, local town hero. Harry wants famous rock star Jaz to be his best man - only Jaz is Suzy's ex-husband and a recovering alcoholic. Suzy's half sister, Lucille, loves getting to know the family she never met, but she can't help her attraction to Jaz, nor can Suzy quash her entirely inappropriate feelings for Leo, Harry's engaged brother.

With all these wild players at the table, mayhem is bound to ensue. As each new piece comes into play, everyone has more to lose, and the only way to win is if you're good at the games of love.

Could've been a contender

It could've been great. But there was too much plot not enough character development. Poor editing, storylines started then dropped then picked up again at the very end just to wrap things up. Inconsistent. But I finished it.

Nope, not for me

I usually love JM books but in thus instance, it seems the reviews were correct ... cant actually recall much if the book, got through it but did stop half way and then resumed. It was just "blah blah" .. i didnt bond or like any of the characters, i just didnt care what happened .. it was a time filler

Not Bad

I'm probably not a great person to go by when it comes to reviewing Jill Mansell because I don't think I could ever dislike one of her books. That being said, I honestly didn't care for either of the lead male characters. I enjoyed listening but I didn't care one way or the other how the story ended. I wasn't pulling for anyone. If you're looking for a light happy story - this will do.

good at games

I was so disappointed with this book. it was so predictable. you knew exactly who would end up with who.
the narration wasn't the best.
Jill Mansell can be a bit hit and miss for me. I have loved most of her books, but this one was a real bore.
