About this Book

Can Hanna and Will Find True Love amid the Bright Lights of Reality TV? Perfect for the fans of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette!
Six months ago, William stole Hanna’s heart and shattered it in front of millions of people on a reality TV dating show. And now the big-wig CEO is back on Hanna’s home turf in Minnesota and wants her to forgive him? Fat chance of that. But life is swirling around faster than snow in a blizzard, and despite her objections, teaming up with William seems like the only option to rescue her reputation.                William has never regretted anything more than the day he gave that ill-fated interview for the reality show, The Price of Love. But while he can’t change the past, he’s determined to fix the future. He just needs to convince Hanna to forgive him—and pretend to be engaged with him. Simple, right?
When the media erupts with even worse accusations, teaming up and pretending to be engaged seems to be the only way to salvage their reputations.  Despite the media frenzy that swirls around them, an attraction neither of them can fight off begins to surface. Could this love run deeper than a scandal, or will old wounds tear them apart once and for all?  When all seems lost, it’s only with help from above that Hanna and Will may find their happily-ever-after.

What happens when CEO William steals the heart of Hanna on a reality dating show and then shatters it in front of millions of viewers? That is what we find out in The Engagement Plot by Krista Phillips.

I haven't watched reality TV dating shows, but I have read a few books by people who have been on them, so the concept of this story intrigued me.

When I first started this book, I expected most of it to take place during the filming of the reality show. It actually took place after the fact. Hanna is back at home and having trouble getting back to “normal life” because of comments William made about their relationship.

William's board of directors originally wanted him on the show to boost numbers, but now that the show is over and he and Hanna are not together, sales are going down. Sales are down enough that William's board wants him to make amends with Hanna.

This story was an okay read. I liked the title of the show being called The Price of Love because it fit very well with the theme of the story. While the storyline was certainly different than I expected it to be, there were parts that were very entertaining and then there were parts that seemed too far fetched.
