3 stars-- Emergency Engagement (Love Emergency, #1) by Samanthe Beck

Beck is so fun. Christmas, a fake romance, a sexy EMT? Oh lordy, yes, please!
The Gist: It's Christmas and Beau's parents? Well, they've just found him in his neighbor's bedroom coping a feel. I mean, that's what they think they've found (it's totally not) and they're..ecstatic! And Beau decides to ask his neighbor-- who's a stranger-- if she'll, you know, be his fake fiance for the holidays just to ease their minds a little more.
Yeah, I loved Beau. He's a sexy broody hero who's past haunts him. But he's kind hearted even if he tries to ruthlessly protect that very heart from breaking ever again. And Savannah is... lively. She's a free spirit, creative and just full of life.
Sweet Jesus, Savannah. The man just bit your ass.
The two were really sweet together. She needed someone who supported and believed in her. He needed someone to help heal his heart from loss. There were some hard moments as he dealt with his past. And some fun ones as they spent time together. But things weren't always perfect and there were some real ugly moments that had me worried. And, whew, the sexy. Yeah, they had nice chemistry and a sparkling dynamic. Made it so much fun.

Now. I did have some issues. Mainly there was a LOT happening in less than 4 weeks time (Thanksgiving to Christmas) and sometimes the timeline really wasn't realistic or believable especially when a surprise popped up. I think the story would have been better suited to a 2 month time period, really. And I didn't like how he found out her surprise and others not realizing how much it would upset him.

Overall, though, Emergency Engagement was a sexy little read that'll heat up the holiday season.
Glass artist Savannah Smith expected a marriage proposal for Thanksgiving—just not from her strong, silent, super-hot neighbor. But when misplaced mail and a wayward can of paint lands them in a compromising position right as her family arrives for dinner, they assume he’s “The One” she’s been talking about.

Fate dealt a crippling blow to paramedic Beau Montgomery’s heart, and he isn’t about to put it at risk again. Except, with his mother crying tears of joy over his surprise engagement to the sexy little blonde next door, he can’t bring himself to ruin her “Christmas miracle.”

Somewhere between the paint can to the head and the chaotic family trip to the ER, Beau manages to talk Savannah into being his fake fiancée long enough to survive the holidays.
