Boston socialite Morgan Lett is having a run of bad luck. Her fiancé just dumped her for her stepsister, the charity foundation she’s given her life to is in danger of folding, and now, the gorgeous man she bid on and won at a masquerade bachelor auction turns out to be a cold-hearted jerk…and her new employer.
Millionaire Alexander Bishop needs the best wife money can buy. In order to inherit his family business, he must get engaged—fast. And Morgan, with her beauty and pedigree, is the perfect candidate. Her sharp tongue may drive him crazy, but she needs money to save the foundation she loves, and he needs a fiancée. It’s a flawless arrangement—no strings, no love. But soon she has him craving more, and cursing the platonic terms of their agreement.
Still, he won’t allow need—no matter how hot it burns—to threaten everything he’s built.
My Musings :
I don't remember what made me pick up this book. The trope of fake fiance isn't one of my favourite themes. Yeah I do read them but not often. There was something which made me read this book and am I glad!! By the time I had finished chapter 2, I was hooked.
From the beginning, the author had me emotionally reeled in. There were such a variety of feelings and emotions going through my head while reading. The first few pages saw me upset and angry and hurt on behalf of Morgan and then the helter skelter ride of lust and like between Morgan and Alex. It was a whirlwind and I survived it unscathed with a very good read under my belt.
The beginning started off with a bang with Alex's dislike of Morgan and Morgan's playful wrong acting of a gold digger. It had me cackling with glee early on. I loved Alex's reaction on understanding Morgan and her character. And I also was moved by the person behind Alex's bland wall.
Morgan and Alex are both cut from the same cloth but use different ways to stay sane. Morgan is a very sweet person who had me mad at her step father's treatment. I am still not sure if I like her step sister or not. On one hand, I am so mad at her but on the other hand I am glad because without her Morgan would have missed Alex. Alex feels so much that he shutters himself in tight not to show them out. Again, his father made me so mad with his partiality. This book has so many characters and if I don't love them, I am mad at them. Inspite of it, I loved reading the interactions among them and the way they impacted each other.
This was another fast read. The romance was neither too edgy nor soft. The story's flow was at perfect pace and I loved getting to know the protagonists. I can foresee myself reading more of the author's works.
I received an e-book through Netgalley for reviewing purpose. This doesn't affect my thoughts in any way. This is an unbiased and honest review.
My one line review : A romance which evokes strong emotions.
My rating : 5/5
My reread factor : 4.5/5
