Shelves: site-unlimited , rich-guys , pregnant-heroines , sweet-heart-warming-stories , listened-to-audio-version I picked up this book as a site Unlimited selection with free Audible audio. Listening to this book immediately following 'Grayson's Vow', it was impossible not to compare the stories.
Unfortunately, even though this was a pretty okay story, it couldn't compare. In truth, I probably should've held off on reading this one for a little while.
Then, maybe I would have been able to enjoy this one without any lingering comparisons. This story is in the marriage of convenience trope. Rich guy needs I picked up this book as a site Unlimited selection with free Audible audio. They're not supposed to fall in love.
They do. Vindictive ex-girlfriend throws them a few curveballs. They break up.
They make up. Not a new or original storyline. Not the best done, but not the worst by a long shot. I don't exactly regret doing so, but the last quarter or so was painful enough to drop this a whole star rating.
Blake and Samantha are charming. Fun, even. I liked them as characters, even though the entire setup was laughable. You expect to download the premise in a story like this one, however contrived, because how else do you get a marriage of convenience in a modern setting?
So I I'm something of a fan of the marriage of convenience turning into love so I took a chance on this inexpensive story. So I went along even though every single thing connected to Blake's situation was completely impossible. That's all background, so I give it a pass. It's the price to pay for being with some delightful characters for a while and enjoy their budding relationship and growing trust for one another. So yeah, serviceable. The last quarter or so of the already short book was contrived beyond all possible reason.

Bybee has Blake contract a fatal case of the stupids. I'm not a huge fan of the Big Misunderstanding in the first place, but when you have to compromise the very foundation of both the character and the relationship to pull it off, you should probably rethink that story element altogether.
And Bybee makes it even worse with how Blake resolves it. She needs to know why he betrayed her trust in keeping the terms of the ridiculous will secret I use ridiculous in every sense of the term.
She needs to know why he lied even by omission in a relationship built from the beginning on absolute honesty. He didn't need to come to her with proof. He needed to come to her with groveling apologies and a heartfelt resolution to be better. Frankly, two stars is possibly too generous, but I did enjoy them in the beginning as shallow as they ultimately are.
A note about Steamy: I didn't actually keep count in this one for some reason. Middle of my steam tolerance with probably two and maybe three explicit sex scenes. They weren't remarkable, but weren't out of place, either. Jan 12, Juanita rated it liked it Shelves: Jul 30, Gilgamesha rated it really liked it.

A business deal that would benefit both parties for the course of one year. Then they could go their separate ways and never lay eyes on each other again. Catherine Bybee brilliantly set up the story. Everything 2.
Everything you want in a first chapter. The cold-hearted millionaire who needed a wife but couldn't be bothered with any strings whatsoever.
Making It Right by Catherine Bybee
So he decided to contract one out and went to a matchmaking agency to find the perfect business partner. But why settle for a possible candidate when the owner of the matchmaking business was just as unattached as he was?
She already had a brilliant business mind, and she understood the stakes more than anyone. And so a deal was struck. And I was loving it. Right up until that point. Suddenly, character development went out the window and the plot jumped from one scene to the other so fast I was suffering from jet lag. I would have loved for this to be a character-driven romance but instead it was And just Supporting characters were introduced with a sentence or two and barely enough dialogue for me to even remember who they were.
Plot twists view spoiler [ from him being an actual Duke to vengeful vipers with hidden cameras and Barbie Ninja skills, to pierced condoms and strange legal clauses held by lawyers with a stake in the booty hide spoiler ] all of which described with barely any motivation or cause made my head swirl.
There was no real build up between these characters and the millionaire who was meant to be cold and heartless turned into a soppy woman who fell in love after one shag. The female main character I've already forgotten her name wasn't really a serious business woman after all, infact she basically let her whole business go indefinitely as soon as she had a man who could support her.
I ultimately didn't feel invested in the characters. The fantastic set up was all smoke and mirrors for a very silly romance. It's an enjoyable fantasy ride but a little too simple for my tastes.

Blake looks over the pictures she sent to him, but the only woman he is interested in is Sam herself. The first book in the Weekday Brides series is a cute Marriage of Convenience story in a contemporary setting.
It was a quick entertaining read. I'll be continuing with the series in the future. My rating: Considering he's the proud holder of not one but two girlfriends Blake's in a sticky situation.
Enter Samantha and her firm Alliance. Sam has had a tough life, her dad's in jail,her mom committed suicide and her sister's attempted suicide landed her in a very expensive home due t 3. Sam has had a tough life, her dad's in jail,her mom committed suicide and her sister's attempted suicide landed her in a very expensive home due to her damage.
She's running her matchmaking firm with her friend Eliza. Alliance sets up temporary marriages with powerful men who need or want a certain type of bride for a specified period and ending in a settlement for the bride at the end.
She takes the meet with Blake and gives him the dossier of 3 women. Blake however wants Sam and offers her lifetime care for her sister to the tune of 10 million dollars as her payment. She agrees and a modern day arranged marriage was born. I both liked and disliked certain parts of this book.
I found it well written and entertaining for the most part. I liked her. Blake however I had some issues with,not him in the present but his past actions. Him having 2 girlfriends irritated me, then the fact that he had sex with the one who turned out to be a bitch 2 weeks before meeting Sam and their relationship turned physical pretty quickly so not much time passed in between.
Little references to his past had me side eyeing Blake as well. While it wasn't overdone I wasn't a fan. He came across a bit sleazy. From the time he met Sam however he was only about her, no one else. Mild sexy times with none of my favorite words in use which was a disappointment. The chemistry was good but the acts were more meh Some good secondary characters as well as set up for later books, OW drama from Blake's ex who just didn't know when to quit, a little surprise that was due to her deceit which is actually one of my favorites in a romance.
All in all I liked this one by a new to me author. Had it not been for my little quibbles I'd have definitely rated it higher. Nevertheless I'll try the next. I absolutely adored this authors other series Not Quite so when site unlimited suggest I look at this series I downloaded it straight away.
I did enjoy this book, I didn't love it like I had with the books in the other series but that might be because this book was more relaxed. It's rare for me to read a romance with little to no drama but I enjoyed it regardless.
I have downloaded the next book in the series and when I'm looking for a chilled out read I will read it. After reading Single by Saturday and thoroughly enjoying it and then seeing this was available on site Unlimited I jumped right on it and read it in less than a day.
It was a nice romance to escape into on a rainy day. With so many other reviews posted I have no desire to go into details. But I was happy to be looking backwards in this series to learn just what the "Duke and Duchess" references were from that first book I read. Complications from both fathers make for a couple who are both leer After reading Single by Saturday and thoroughly enjoying it and then seeing this was available on site Unlimited I jumped right on it and read it in less than a day.
Complications from both fathers make for a couple who are both leery to place trust in anyone. But then sparks do fly when they touch much less after marrying and being in close quarters.
Sam Samantha Elliott, in giving Blake five minutes to state his case in the first chapter set in a Starbucks, won my heart - a no nonsense woman. Blake in expecting a man and then in turning the tables in a proposition for a marriage on paper only, with her, not with any of the 3 candidates she screened for him - not even a marriage of convenience - seems a perfect foil.
But then we learn the family history for both and our hearts pull for love's magic touch to make this a HEA marriage for both.

The author does not fail us. Mar 23, Hayden rated it really liked it.After introductions were out of the way, Clive jumped right into his questions.
If I hadn't read a great story with the same basic storyline immediately prior to reading this one, I probably would've liked it even more.
That a divorce after I graduated from high school was for the best.
Sign in to Comment. Sam met them with bags of food from a local restaurant and several bottles of wine. As she corrected the steering, a new sound rang from her already pissed off engine. The desk and valet at the hotel delayed him long enough to give Lori a fifteen-minute head start. What a scam. The thing is, those harlequin novels?
