Publisher's Summary

A baker with a past who’s never gotten over her first love, a billionaire who was left broken-hearted at the altar, and a surprise Vegas wedding.

Rachel Hill longs for a family of her own, but time is ticking away, and she’s never been able to get past the loss of her high school boyfriend.

Daniel Montgomery leaves the family business to strike out on his own when his fiancee calls off the wedding, leaving him alone, confused, and broken-hearted. 

When Rachel and Daniel run into each other unexpectedly, they recall a vow they made a decade earlier: if they’re still single at 40, they’ll marry each other. With middle age looming, these high school sweethearts elope without giving it more than a moment’s thought. But in the cold light of day, they soon come to regret their hasty choice.

Demons from the past threaten to steal Rachel’s peace, but the fulfillment of a lifelong dream gives her something to live for. Daniel longs to rebuild his life and succeed in his career, but his drive and ambition overshadow everything.

Will they be able to put the pain of the past behind them and embrace the love they shared so long ago, or will fear pull them apart?

Best-selling author Vivi Holt gives you the perfect excuse to put your feet up with this heartwarming take on a Vegas wedding between two high school sweethearts who haven't seen each other in a decade.

Fall in love all over again with this sixth installment in the best-selling Make-Believe series.

Suddenly married. The beginning or the end?

This was a sweet romance that had me rooting for the couple. Rachel and Daniel dated in high school and made a promise to each other to marry if they were unmarried by 40. A commercial airplane ride and chance meeting moved up the promise. I enjoyed listening to the narrator tell the story of Rachel and Daniel. They both encouraged one another in their dreams, but were not completely open with one another. The lack of communication added a depth to the story. I recommend to those that love short sweet, clean romance.

Intriguing

I so enjoyed this intriguing story. The narrator sure made out come to life. I really didn’t think it would happen for them. I loved listening to how they finally made out work, so many outside issues, mainly in their minds, keeping them apart. Great story and great narrator.

Another great book!

I love books that bring old-time friends together to love one another! Even though all of the doubts and misunderstandings of these two, they work through the insecurities and pressures of living with one spontaneous decision that changes their lives forever. Vivi does it again! Great, fun listen! Amanda's narration is great too! I was given this review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Make Believe or Real?

Another romantic read with a HEA ending by the amazing Vivi Holt! In her latest "Make-Believe" tale, high school sweethearts Rachel and Dan get married in Las Vegas (by Elvis, of course!) after a chance meeting after 10 years. they had been in love all those years ago, but family, college and other circumstances have kept them apart. Daniel Montgomery is the son of a wealthy ranching family, but decided to leave Montana in order to make it on his own in San Francisco. Coincidentally, Rachel lives in San Fran and is an accomplished baker. Their unexpected marriage comes on the heels of Dan being unceremoniously dumped by his fiancé and Rachel being afraid that she will never find true love. Ms. Holt has once again created an entertaining book, full of misunderstandings, growing feelings of attraction after an almost business-like arrangement, and a lot of faith that works to bring the couple together. Her books are well-written with great characters and are perfect when you need something that will uplift you and strengthen your faith in people. The narrator, Amanda Stribling, does a great job with her narration and her performance adds a lot to the readers' enjoyment. I was given the chance to listen to this audiobook by the author and chose to review it.

Could it be real?

Vivi Holt's 6th book in the Make-Believe series will make you believe in second chances! When Daniel takes a job outside the family to expand his knowledge, he never thought life would turn out as it does. His fiancee dumps him, leaving him in a new city, with his co-workers thinking he is off to get married. Bumping into his high school sweetheart was not in the cards, but now that he has seen Rachel again, and with their promise to marry if they hadn't by the time they are 40 hatches a new idea. Let's just speed up the timeline! Now given this second chance, will they rekindle the love they once had? It's a sweet story! I love this couple, as they get to know each other again. But things are not that easy. Communication is key, and these two just aren't quite there yet. A trip home for the holidays may be the ultimate test.Will they come home happy? Holt finishes this series with a heartwarming story, one that pulls on the emotions and let's us engage in Rachel and Daniel's journey. Amanda Stribling brings it all to life, letting us enjoy the family, as well as Daniel and Rachel. Her voices match the personalities of the characters perfectly and it lets me escape into the story. I enjoyed her performance.

beautiful story of perseverance...

Yes, perseverance...Daniel Montgomery comes from a wealthy family but, instead of joining his families company, he moves from Montana to California to work for a start up company. This did not bode well with his fiancee' and she dumped him a few weeks before their wedding. On the way to a corporate retreat for his new company, Dan encounters his HS girlfriend, Rachel, on the plane. Under the influence of some powerful muscle relaxants, Dan marries Rachel. Here's where perseverance comes in...although this couple got married for the wrong reasons, they decide to remain married and get to know each other. Meanwhile, Rachel follows her dream of opening her own bakery, and helping her sister deal with infertility. This is a sweet story that explores relationships and what it takes to succeed. I highly recommend this book and the entire Make-Believe series. I accepted a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
