Four failed engagements. One year-long hiatus on women.
Elliott Sullivan loves being in love, but after his latest romantic disaster, his friends and family finally put their foot down—no relationships or proposals for at least a year. Ready for his heart not to be squashed under another sexy high-heel, he agrees to fully embrace life as a perpetual bachelor. Which should be easy—especially when he recruits his sister’s best friend for help. Surely he won’t fall for her, no matter how perfect she seems…
Skylar isn’t sorry to see Elliott’s latest relationship go up in flames. She’s had a crush on him for as long as she remembers—not that anything can ever happen there. So when Elliott asks for her help to stop him from breaking his dating embargo, she jumps at the chance. They’ve spent time together before and nothing has come of it. So what could possibly go wrong this time?
Sticking to his embargo would be fine if all this time with Skye wasn’t making Elliott wonder if maybe the perfect girl had been in front of him all along.

Eileen's Thoughts

Elliott and Skylar’s story in The Engagement Embargo, book one in Samantha Chase’s new Meet Me at the Altar series, is an emotional, heartwarming, sister’s best friend tale.

Elliott Sullivan loves being in love. He wants a love like his grandparents, who have been married for what seems forever. After this fourth engagement ended at the altar, his friends and family had had enough; no relationships or proposals for at least a year. Not ready to have his heart broken again, he agrees to embrace life as a bachelor; taking a hiatus from women.  Needing to figure out what’s wrong with him, he recruits his sister’s best friend for informal counseling assistance. It’s perfect, there’s no way he will fall for her, no matter how many boxes she checks off.

Crushing on Elliott for forever, Skylar wasn’t sorry to see his latest relationship implode. When Elliott asks her to help him keep from breaking his dating embargo, she reluctantly agrees. It will give her a chance to put her psychology degree to use. These two have spent time together before with nothing happening; so there shouldn’t be a problem. Except, spending time together, getting to know each other better brings out the chemistry that exists between them. Adhering to his embargo would be no problem except Elliott’s time with Skye was making him realize what true love really was as well as that the perfect girl was actually in front of him along.


Ms. Chase wrote an amazing, heartwarming and emotional story that is not to be missed. She provided a tale rich with sizzling chemistry, amusing banter, and an endearing cast of secondary characters giving Elliott and Skye a chance at love, happiness and the possibility of a forever together. I highly recommend The Engagement Embargo to other readers and look forward to the next book in this series.
