4 Star review The Dating Plan by Sara Desai Sara Desai is a new author to me and how I have not come across this author before I have no idea. I was intrigued be the blurb when I read this second chance at love story and found it to be well written and an entertaining story. This is Daisy Patel and Liam Murphy’s story. These two have history as Liam broke her heart many years ago by standing her up at her prom. Daisy has never forgiven him and Liam has never forgotten Daisy, for him she is the one who got away. However, sometimes you have to do things you would rather not and Daisy is at this point, thanks to her matchmaking relatives who will not give up. When Liam learns the terms of his grandfather’s will and that he needs to be married, he is shocked. He is even more surprised when Daisy asks him to be her fake fiance. However realizing that they can help each other out, a marriage of convenience is planned. I enjoyed this story, it had romance, heat, was witty, with loud out loud moments and I loved the relationship that developed between Daisy and Liam. This was an entertaining read that I enjoyed. I received a copy of this book through the publisher via Netgalley.
Daisy Patel has had a crush on her brother's best friend, Liam Murphy, since she was a teenage girl. When Liam asked Daisy to her high school prom, she was over the moon, until he stood her up and then disappeared from their lives. Now, ten years later he suddenly shows up in her life at a convention along with her ex-boss, who is dating her ex-boyfriend; and her Salena Auntie who has a guy she brought along as possible husband material. So what does Liam do? He kisses Daisy and plays along that they are engaged! It also turns out that when Liam's grandfather passed away, part of his will states that Liam must get married by his 30th birthday, which is in a few months, in order to claim his inheritance. Thus starts The Dating Plan. Daisy and Liam come up with a list of fake dates they will go on to get everyone to believe that they are really dating. Then they'll get married for a year and divorce after that. Problem is is that the fake dating turns real pretty quickly. Just when it looks like everything is going according to plan, of course, everything falls apart. It will take a lot of soul searching for both of these two to find their happy ever after, but it will be worth it in the end. Overall I enjoyed this story. I could relate a lot to Daisy. Liam was a fun add to the mix to her very controlled life. I really loved Daisy's crazy family too and they made for a lot of laugh out loud moments.

Cheesy, predictable, and over the top - that being said... still adorable and fluffy. When Daisy runs into Liam, the boy who stood her up from prom 10 years ago, she is instantly as enraged as if it ...
