My Review:

An ad on a utility pole, not so unusual, except this one is advertising for a wife. What a great start to a story. Enter Julie Knott, recently dumped reporter looking for a distraction and a story. Andy Devine is looking for a wife, but it’s not meant to be a love match, it’s meant to be a business arrangement. That is until he meets Julie and things go awry.

I loved Julie for the beginning, the way she told off her ex endeared her to me. She’s a reporter, and her no good ex fiancé left her high and dry, so she takes up Andy on his offer.

Andy ran a little hot and cold for me, but their between the sheets the chemistry was off the charts. I found myself liking Andy one minute and wanting to smack him and tell him to be nicer to Julie’s feelings. Of course, this story is told from Julie’s point of view so that might be why I found him so attentive and distant all at the same time.

I really enjoyed Ms. Jones storytelling style. Especially with the major twist she threw in that I did not see coming. Overall this is an excellent love story, which I couldn’t put down. I read it all in one sitting. I highly recommend this book!
