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.
After being humiliated on national television, what choice does Hanna have but to return home? Home to the aptly named Embarrass, Minnesota. Six months have passed since “Holy” Hanna left the show, disgraced, angry, and bitter. Six months she’s had to deal with seeing her name and face on the gossip magazines at the checkout counters.
So when Will shows up, she’s none too happy. But he has a plan to get both of them back in the good graces of Americans (not to mention Will’s bosses).
I loved Hanna! This character is so real. She struggles with her decisions, knows they’re probably not right but makes them anyway. She’s honest with herself about her bitterness toward William and her ruined witness because of going on The Price of Love. It’s her journey that most appealed to me in this book.
William seems a little selfish at first but as I got to know him, I liked him more. While his methods aren’t the best, his intentions are. And that’s what counts.
As both Will and Hanna spend time together, they’re reminded of the reasons they chose each other on the show. Yet there’s a distance between them that can only be filled with trust, forgiveness, and God.
The perfect reminder that the price of love is great…greater than imagined at sometimes.
