Everyone’s for sale, including me. One moment I’m the forgotten daughter of one of the most wealthy families in the country, and the next I’m the blushing bride in an arranged marriage. My fate is sealed in my wedded union with a complete stranger. In public, Perry Constantine is the life of the party. Easygoing. Adored. In private, he’s brooding. Dark. Angry. But so am I. It’s a contest of wills to see who will break in the bedroom first, and while I try to remain strong, I find myself craving the very man I swore to hate. My husband.
*I received a free copy of this book which I voluntarily chose to write an honest review for.
This is my first foray into a Murphy romance but I must say that I am impressed ready to read more when I can work them in. We follow Perry and Charlotte on their arranged marriage adventure. They are supposed to hate one another given the circumstances but instead they find themselves slowly growing attached as they get to really know each other. This makes for an intense slow burn romance that will really keep your attention as it all plays out making for quite the fun read especially if you like the genre itself. I really liked it so I give it 4/5 stars.
