Series: Imperfect Love #1
Marry the girl I’ve had a crush on my whole life? Check.
Inherit a hundred-billion-dollar company? Check.
Produce an heir… Wait, what?
I have ninety days to knock up my brand-new fake wife. There’s only one problem—she hates my guts.
And in the fine print of the contract? The requirement that we produce an heir.
She can’t stand to be in the same room with me. Says she’ll never be in my bed.
But I’ve never backed down from a challenge and I’m not about to start now.
Mark my words—I’ll have her begging for me, and it won’t take ninety days.
On the heels of her smash hit and New York Times bestselling SCREWED series, Kendall Ryan brings you HITCHED, a romantic comedy that delivers heart and heat. A NYC playboy turned business mogul has ninety days to win over the woman he's always desired in order to save his father's company. One tiny problem: She hates his guts.
And for two people trying to save a failing company, I never felt their urgency to do just that. Olivia spent the book waffling whether to marry Noah or not, even though she's a panty-soaked mess every time he's in the room. I mean, if being married is the only way to save the company and they can't get out of the contract anyway, wouldn't they just get married right away and then try to figure out how to work together as business partners and husband and wife, especially since they lived together for half the book anyway? Why fight it?
I don't know... Yes, marriage is seriously and Olivia supposedly wanted romance and a big wedding, not a business arrangement, but she's also described as a workaholic whose sole focus is company. I mean, she didn't even try to work out different ways to save the company, or to figure out a way to get out of the marriage contract.
Reading through this review, it sounded like I hated the book but I really didn't. I obviously had issues with the characters, but I also see the potential of the story and the characters. Hitched: Volume One is a shaky beginning but I really like the premise and I'm still curious to see what will happen next to Noah and Olivia, especially after the abrupt ending. I'm giving this volume a neutral rating of 2.75 stars (I'm rounding it up to 3 since I don't have a .75 star).
