Summary: Do not adjust your set. That really was Casey Greene being jilted by her fiancee on live TV! And that really was Memphis's most eligible bachelor who stepped in to marry her instead.
Millionaire businessman Adam Carmichael wanted only to help Casey save face. He isn't prepared for the news that their "fake" wedding is legal and binding.
While they secretly wait for an annulment, media and family scrutiny forces them to put on their best loving-couple act. Except by now, neither one is quite sure who's acting...
Review: Yeah! This book starts off funny right away! I love Adam's inner dialogue as he is trying to calm down Casey.
Oh how complicated these "marriages of convenience" get. Adam and Casey start to date even though Adam just wants to stay away from Casey for a month? Sigh, can't authors write cute little stories with more believable storylines or at least try to make them intelligent?
A total wiff on the sex scene. Hot and heavy with the foreplay descriptions but when it came to the real deal the author just went with a "they did it". So much time building it up claiming their kisses were just sooo hot and then suddenly they are in bed and Adam "claims Casey as his own". Then it is morning. Lame! Talk about anti-climatic! It almost felt like false advertising to me. And then in the morning bam, Adam is saying it was a mistake to sleep together when for basically the whole book he was trying to get her in the sack. I guess the author wanted to make the book longer and add some more angst to the story but poorly executed.
A lot going on- secondary romance with Adam's step-mother Eloise and his lawyer Sam; Adam fighting his cousin and aunt in courts; Casey trying to get her father and sister to be able to live on their own; and then Casey and Adam's relationship. The author bit off more then she could chew and the Adam/Casey relationship takes a hit because of it. Simmer down authors, two characters is all I need as long as you make them exceptional.
This book had a lot of serendipitous and started off really funny. I was digging it thinking "yeah this might be a really light read but it will be good and funny." About half way through the book it tailed off severely into boring land. Could have been a mini-story in a woman's magazine. Some great funny moments just don't expect too much with a poo last half of book.
Next to be read: "To Taste Temptation" #1 in Legend of the Four Soldiers series by Elizabeth Hoyt. Going back to my roots with historical romance.
