About this ebook

The series that readers are calling, "touching, funny, sweet and gut-wrenching all mixed together." By USA Today Bestselling Author, Elena Aitken!

She needs a fiancé. He’s happy to help. Can they see that the love that was never supposed to be real, is as real as it gets? Or will it be too late?



For years, single mom, Evie Rose has managed just fine on her own thank you very much. But when her son’s father unexpectedly reappears on the scene, she risks losing everything if she can’t demonstrate a stable family environment for her son. And fast.


Declan McCormick has dedicated his life to helping others. So when the super sexy, fiercely independent, Evie Rose asks for his help, there’s no way he can say no.

Especially since she needs him to be her fake fiancé.

After all, anything that means stealing a kiss or two, seems like a pretty good deal.


As Evie and Declan spend more time together, not only does their relationship start to look real, it starts to feel more real than anything she’s ever felt before. But when everything starts to unravel, tough decisions have to be made—quickly.


Evie will do anything to keep her son and the life they’ve built. Even if it means closing her heart to something she’s never felt before. Declan didn’t think love was possible, but if he doesn’t open his eyes to see what’s in front him, he could lose the family he’s grown to love—forever.

I loved, I cried, and I have a new book boyfriend from reading In This Moment by Elena Aitken. Declan is the third born and spends his time traveling the world, setting up projects to help those in need through his company DAR. Evie is a single mom who recently opened the boutique Live, Love, and Lake in Cedar Springs. When the father of her eight-year old son comes to Cedar Spring wanting visitation and custody of him, Evie invents a fake fiancé, Declan. Declan readily agrees to help Evie, as that is who he is, helping those he cares about. These two need to figure out whether or not this engagement is fake or real. I loved reading this book and had trouble putting this book down. Every time I read one Ms. Aitken’s books I think she can’t write another better than this one, but she does. Each and every time. Each and every book. Elena really knows how to tell a wonderful story, drawing me into the story and not letting me go until I read the last page, wanting more. Her words and stories make me want to live in Cedar Springs with her wonderful characters. This is her fourth book in The McCormicks series, but each book is a standalone story. I am looking forward to the next book in this series and highly recommend this book to other readers. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.

I have been waiting for this story as I've loved all the others in the series but I always felt Evie and Declan were the "underdogs". Both characters deserve to find great love and both have admired each other from a distance but neither have taken the step to ask each other out on a date. Declan will do anything to help others so steps up when Evie needs help. Two people who actually really like each other have to pretend to like each other!!!! Of course this will lead to some fun. This kept me turning the pages and I even shed a few tears. We also had a bit more of a glimpse into Maureen McCormick.......she has her own story to tell and I hope its on the cards for her own book!

I showed up really late to the McCormick party but I am so glad I finally clued in! Evie is a single mom and boutique owner. She has been raising her son solo for the past eight years but when her son's father shows up wanting to share custody, she needs a new man and fast. Declan has liked Evie since he met her but he doesn't do relationships. But Declan is a sucker for someone in need so when he learns that Evie needs a fiancee so she can keep her son, he's on board. These McCormick men are so unbelievably swoon worthy. Once the spark hits, there's no turning back for them. Declan was no exception. I loved these two so much and while I couldn't put it down, I never wanted it to end. Everything about this world draws you in and leaves you wanting stories for every character that you've met! *This is my voluntary review of an advanced reader copy*
