Much more than he bargained for…
“You want me to find you a wife?”
“No. I want you to bemy wife.”
Garrett Song is this close to taking the reins of his family’s LA fashion empire…until the Song matriarch insists he marry her handpicked bride first. To block her matchmaking, he recruits Natalie Sobol to pose as his wife. She needs a fake spouse as badly as he does. But when passion burns down their chaste agreement, the flames could destroy them all…
The marriage of convenience trope is one of my favorite tropes to read about so I was super excited to get my hands on this. This was a decent debut and I loved that our couple were POC.
The chemistry between Natalie and Garrett was explosive from the first time they met and it kept building through this short book. I was begging them to act on their feelings so many times. They also balanced each other out with their personalities. It was a good time reading about Garrett, who was so opposed to thoughts of love realize that he was falling in love with Natalie.
Now, I did have some issues. There were time jumps where I was left confused as to what was going on. I know this book is a short one and maybe they cut it down for size, but I would have loved a bit more information or some page breaks. Also, the plot was pretty typical and I grew annoyed with Garrett and how he decided to handle his growing feelings for Natalie. Don’t push someone away just because you are starting to feel.
Overall, it was a decent short story and I’m open to reading more of this series. His sister Adelaide is next and I hope she gets her HEA.
