Ashlynn Connolly has been Ethan Kearney’s best friend since they were twelve, despite the difference in their tax brackets. Though he played stupid pranks on her as a child, and left for a career in the Navy, Ash has always stood by him. But now Ethan has a deadline, and he’s going to put their friendship to the test with a business proposition—a marriage proposal.
If Ashlynn hadn’t been flat-out broke, and about to ask for a loan from her best friend, she might have laughed at Ethan’s proposal. But being laid off with a small child to care for alone changes one’s perspective and the idea of being Ethan’s wife is too much to turn down, and not just because of the money he offers.
Getting married is the simplest solution to both their problems, or so it seems. But while the passion between them scorches the sheets, a shadow from Ash’s past prepares to burn them more thoroughly than either ever expected.
This book had so much potential, but it just fell a little short for me.
These two people have been friends since they were 12 years old, Ethan is from a very rich powerful business family who had him sign a contract on his 18th birthday so he could get his trust fund, the contract stated he had to be married by 25 to keep his flow of money.
Ashlynn is from a regular loving family, who got with the wrong guy at 17 and had a son. The guy ended up in prison now shes a single mom and broke, in comes the proposal from Ethan to help with his contract situation and her money troubles, perfect solution right? theyre best friends it should be easy.
There was a lot of repetitive bickering between the couple, and it felt like they could have been strangers in some parts instead of long time best friends.
When they were friendly with each other the sex seemed great!
They didnt seem to do much together or with Ashlynn’s child Corwin (hated his name by the way)
This whole book Ethan spent in denial he couldnt love, didnt know how to love blah blah.
Ethan is in the navy but know where did we get a good description of his hotness, all we got was many descriptions of his short navy style blonde hair and his wide shoulders, we need a image of how hot the guy is to make you fall for the hero, there was nothing to pull you in.
I really wanted to like this book it could have been so good but it lacked emotion and the angst that would have made it great, the plot could have been so much more.
