Maddy Wainright has given up on marriage - and men. After dating way too many losers who aren't capable of appreciating her for who she is, she's about ready to resign herself to a life of spinsterhood. Until her insanely rich boss Daniel Thorne comes along with an offer she simply can't refuse.
He proposes a marriage of convenience - one that would allow Maddy to live in the lap of luxury for a year, and Mr. Thorne to stay in the country that has become his home. At the end of their arrangement, Maddy will walk away with a cool two million dollars. All she has to do is move into his mansion, put on a convincing show in public, and endure a few INS interviews, for which she will be thoroughly prepped. It's a big risk, but one Maddy might just be willing to take, considering the payoff.

At first, it's all business. But when the gentle touches, passionate kisses, and lingering looks they have to give each other in public start spilling over into their private life, Daniel and his devious mind take Maddy to heights of pleasure she's never experienced. And the more she gets to know him, the more she feels that wistful tug in her chest every time he puts his arm around her in public. Before long, she finds herself wishing it were real.

As time goes on, Maddy finds herself wondering if two million dollars will be enough to cover the cost of repairing a broken heart. But Mr. Thorne may have yet another secret in store...

What is this shit

 

I should have DNFed this. I WANTED too DNF this. I did not DNF it. And that was about the third dumbest thing I’ve done this year and it’s only January.

I’m going to keep this sweet and to the point because thinking about this book is giving me a migraine and I have work today so that just won’t do.

The characters were flat, I didn’t connect with a single person and in all honesty I wanted to throat punch our MCs. The plot was eh but it felt like it was trying too hard to creat conflict and god I hate that. Everyone fights. Everyone has ups and downs. I know authors who portray this in books without there being an argument on every. single. page. Sadly this was not one. They argued nonstop about the dumbest of things and even when the book was done and everything was rainbows and unicorns I still felt like so much went unresolved. WHAT DID WE ACCOMPLISH?! What did we fix? WHAT THE EVER LOVING HELL HAPPENED? I don’t know. And I want to forget this book as quickly as possible.

    The blurb of this book already has me turning my head away. I am not a fan of these types of books at all, and this is definitely not one I will even consider picking up.

      Usually I don’t mind them as a “light reset” read but this one was just ugh!

    I wonder if the marriage of convenience trope is ever done well ? Hopefully the next book will be better.

      I highly doubt it. Sometimes, on very rare occasions, they’re super entertaining. This one just was annoying and flat. 🙁 oh well!
