Publisher's Summary

Elliott Sullivan loves being in love, but after his latest romantic disaster, his friends and family finally put their foot down - no relationships or proposals for at least a year. Ready for his heart not to be squashed under another sexy high-heel, he agrees to fully embrace life as a perpetual bachelor - which should be easy, especially once he recruits his sister’s best friend to help. Surely he won’t fall for her, no matter how perfect she seems.... 

Skylar isn’t sorry to see Elliott’s latest relationship go up in flames. She’s had a crush on him for as long as she remembers - not that anything can ever happen there. So when Elliott asks for her help to stop him from breaking his dating embargo, she jumps at the chance. They’ve spent time together before and nothing has come of it, so what could possibly go wrong this time? 

Sticking to his embargo would be fine if all this time with Skye wasn’t making Elliott wonder if maybe the perfect girl has been in front of him all along....

The Embargo

Loved this story and the way Samantha writes. i used a credit and it was worth it! Elliott has had relationship issues since high school. He wants to marry & settle down with a family. This is his fourth try and got to the altar when the most unexpected thing happens. His family put a one year engagement embargo on him. During this time he finally got to know himself and finally found his dream. Narration brought the story to life.

Elliott is my kind of book boyfriend

From the moment I read this blurb and saw that cover, I knew I needed to read this book. Picked it up on audiobook and the narration was fantastic. Immediately, I realized that this story is told in a mix of third person and first person. I normally have a hard time connecting to stories told in third person but after a few chapters, I didn't notice it much anymore.
Elliott is my kind of book boyfriend. He wears his heart on his sleeve and is a total romantic. He doesn't understand why any of his relationships haven't worked and after being left at the alter, his family is not having any of it anymore.
Sky is his sister's best friend and has been around forever and has dreamed of a moment where Elliott might show some interest in her. Sky tries to help him figure out why this keeps happening to him and Elliott starts to wonder why he agreed to this embargo. This was such a sweet romance and the chemistry between the characters had me swooning.
