Blog Post - Married by Contract by Noelle Adams

ABOUT THE BOOK

Three years into a five-year marriage of convenience, Jenn finds herself wanting something she never thought she'd want from her laidback, ex-military husband. Sex--as a much-needed release of tension from her high stress job. But weekly sex with Nick, despite their careful parameters, is likely to get messy eventually. 

Ever since her father walked out on her as a child, Jenn knows never to assume the people she loves will stick around, so she's not about to trust Nick with her heart. She vows to stay strong, no matter how much intimacy develops between them in bed. 

But what starts as a tension-reliever soon becomes so much more, until it threatens both their practical arrangement and the heart Jenn has worked so hard to keep safe.



REVIEW

This is a nice spin on the married contract romance.  The book starts out kind of abruptly, almost immediately with them starting to have sex, but at the same time it was kind of refreshing.  It was a different kind of sexual tension and added a different twist to the story.  I love Jenn (who I must say has an amazing name!) who is a strong heroine and didn't feel like I got to know Nick quite as well as I would have liked too.  The story was all from Jenn's POV and I would like to have had a glimpse inside of Nick's head to see what he was thinking once in a while.  This was a quick and easy read that left me feeling happy and optimistic in the end.


OVERALL RATING - 4.5 STARS!
MATURITY RATING - 18+ a little steamy
