    Awesome story but not very original For me, it was just a little too much like seven brides for seven brothers the movie for me image error Even the scene with the food in the kitchen It was almost exactly the same image error The hero was tolerable at the end and she was awesome all the way However, I do wish that bitch of a cousin would have gotten jail time for almost killing the heroine Come on a spanking, she almost killed a person H

    In my quest to find a good Western HR, I stumbled on this book It had one of the tropes I like MOC and I was in the mood for something heartwarming and nice Plus, I never read this author before.Sorry to say, the story didn t work for me The potential was there, including a fairly good writing, but it was not realized for the most part because of MCs The heroine was either annoyingly naive and timid or overly dramatic The hero was one dimen

    Well written marriage of convenience story The characters could have been a bitfilled out, but it was really a fairly lighthearted story of a couple working out the kinks of a marriage of convenience This story was not deep in introspection, not much of it took place deep in the characters thoughts The hero and heroine were both nice people who did a good job finding each other One minor thing I didn t really care for view spoiler He never ac

    I liked the plot But the characters don t analyse their situation, and their actions are simply istinct A marriage based on those facts can t be a happy one Husband and wife should speak to each other

    This was a short, decent take on a MOC.There was nothing particularly remarkable about the characters to make them stand out, though they were likeable enough at first.I liked the premise of the story and the hero and herione had personality but it started to lose itself halfway I felt that the conflict created a complete reversal of their original characters in a way that just didn t work Rather than showing a different side of them they felt comple

    Short and cute I liked it and how awkward it would be to marry someone you met a few times I thought the interactions were genuine and true to how people who married quickly get to know each other I thought the end was a bit bland.
