I completely enjoyed reading this book. I fell in love with the characters from the very beginning. Their story of falling in love and staying in love was an excellent read. I love how the author wrote it because she brought in some true, everyday issues into it and made it work with the story.
Alexa is the owner of a bookstore. She also wants to be able to help her parents with their bills. The only way that she could think of doing it is entering into a business marriage. She just never thought that she would want to stay in the marriage. She also never thought that she would fall in love with her husband. She also never thought that she would want a happily ever after with the man she married. She also realized that she wanted a family with him.
Nicholas was in a bind. To be able to do his dream for his company he needs to abide by his uncles wishes. He needed to get married. Otherwise he would be in the boardroom, which was not a place he wanted to be. He figured if he found the perfect person to be in a business marriage for a year, he will get his company and the woman to be his wife will get everything money could buy her. He just never thought that having a business marriage would result in something totally different. He never thought that he would fall in love and want a family.
Throughout the whole book, there was laughter and sadness. The couple completely fought their feelings for each other. In the end they finally admitted their feelings for each other. It was nice to learn that anyone could fall in love, no matter what the intentions were in the beginning.
A marriage in name only . . .
To save her family home, impulsive bookstore owner Alexa Maria McKenzie casts a love spell. But she never planned on conjuring up her best friend’s older brother—the powerful man who once shattered her heart.
Billionaire Nicholas Ryan doesn’t believe in marriage, but in order to inherit his father’s corporation, he needs a wife and needs one fast. When he discovers his sister’s childhood friend is in dire financial straits, he offers Alexa a bold proposition.
A marriage in name only with certain rules: Avoid entanglement. Keep things all business. Do not fall in love. The arrangement is only for a year so the rules shouldn’t be that hard to follow, right?
Except fate has a way of upsetting the best-laid plans . . .
