Goodreads: Nell Delaney will do almost anything for her parents and her two sisters. But enter a marriage of convenience to save the family’s coffee shop? Too far. So Nell and her sisters strike a deal: whoever hasn’t found love in thirty days has to step up to take one for the team. The good news? Nell knows the perfect guy to fall in love with. The bad news? She’s going to have to pretend she likes the outdoors…a lot.
Adventure guide Grant Williams knows immediately that Nell is not exactly Little Miss Outdoorsy. She’s a walking natural disaster—an amazingly adorable disaster. And whoa, their chemistry is unbelievable. Everything between them is so perfect, he’s not even a little bit shocked when he starts thinking of forever…
Right up until he catches the town gossiping about the Delaney sisters’ bargain and realizes she’s just using him to win a bet. Unfortunately, his family’s unreliable reputation means he can’t just dump one of the town’s sweethearts. No, she needs to dump him. If she’s going to pretend to be the perfect doting bride, well, he’ll just pretend to be the worst bachelor on the market.
Let the games begin…
Ope’s Opinion: There are positive and negative things about this book. I really appreciated that this book was a clean romance and it had no foul language. On the other side, the main character Nell, basically lied to her romantic interest ( Grant )from the very beginning. She pretended to like outdoor adventures and didn’t tell him why she wanted the relationship to move forward so quickly. If you have lie, what kind of relationship is that?
Of course all the lies come out, but it sort of made me not want to route for them. I didn’t want Nell to get what she wanted because of how she went about trying to get it. This is the first in a series, I am on the fence about reading the rest of the series.
The end is typical of a romance novel. It also left things open for the next book.
