Blurb: True love needs no pretence
When A&E trauma surgeon Dr. Isobel Murphy married sexy Irish firefighter Lucas Delaney, she knew it was going to be forever. Unfortunately, she didn’t realise forever would only last five short years.

Keeping her failed marriage from her family seems like a piece of cake, until her grandmother calls a family gathering and Belle suspects she’s about to announce a critical illness. Making excuses for Luc’s absence, she flies home to Connecticut.

Then delicious Lucas arrives for the three day get-together, and Belle knows things are going to get dicey. Especially since he still has the power to make her heart miss a beat, and her stomach bottom out.

When Belle asks him to pretend they’re still deeply in love, Luc doesn’t have a problem. He sees an opportunity to reclaim the love of his life. And he goes all out to remind Belle how it used to be between them, before long work hours and clashing schedules invaded their marriage.

What he needs to know, though, is, once the pretence is over, will Belle be applying for her decree absolute? Or will they be renewing wedding vows?

Review: Totally pulled at my heart.

I am such a sucker for second chance love. A romantic at heart I love the idea that two people fight the force that is trying to divide them. No granted that Belle isn't really fighting but in the end it all works once she is totally honest with Lucas. I can only imagine how Belle felt about...Yeah, you should know better than that by now. I try very hard not to spoil :)

And Grandma...well, let's just say I have a soft spot for sneaky older women who are way too wise for most of us to understand :) This one was a winner for me.

Sometimes our fears overtake our emotions.
Monique DeVere brings Belle and Lucas charters to life with a situation, we as readers can relate to.
I read this book from start to finish in one day, because I truly could not put it down.
