    3 stars Short (57 page) story about a marriage of convenience. While the hero had been celibate a while, he was a self proclaimed manwhore in the past, having different (often multiple) women in his bed each night 😷 -no cheating - no ow/om drama - no violence of any nature -neither were virgins - safe- neither with others after meeting -decent epilogue 6 years later

To get full control of his dead father's company, he has to fulfill a set of conditions. One of them is to get married. Rafe accidentally spills coffee all over Ellis when she goes to her job interview. The minute Rafe sees Ellis, he decides she would be the perfect wife for him. Rafe explains the situation he finds himself in and asks Ellis to marry him and pretend to be in love with him for 5 years. Ellis agrees reluctantly and she was right to hesitate because Rafe didn't tell her the full truth. I enjoyed reading this fun and steamy short romance. I thought it was very cute and over the top. I loved how attracted Rafe was to Ellie and how invested he was in their relationship.

    I enjoy this kind of stories. Marriage contract turning into more. Add some bitchy mother moments and I'm all giddy, like a little girl with her lollipop. Lol. But that said, there was no big dramas. This story is for a light and quick read, with a bit of sexiness thrown in.

The evil step mother is basically called "the bitch" the whole time. I honestly don't know her name, which is just offensive and sexist and not something I'm interested in reading about. She's a cartoon villain with no depth at all. I know that all of her heroes are whores, but for like 10 years he slept with 1-3 new women every night. A guy who's literally slept with 1000s of women and brags about treating them all like shit is not sexy, he icky and disgusting. Sam Crescent in not a good write, she's never been a good write, but she has written a lot of books and novellas that I've really enjoyed, mostly because they play into tropes I enjoy and have an interesting story and compelling characters. One of the things I like about her books is the instant attraction that the males feel when they meet their ladies but he feels nothing. He's utterly cold and looks at her as a commodity in the beginning and there is never a moment of him changing the way he looks at her, he suddenly just wants to bang her. If you combine all the plot, character and technical writing issues in this, it ends up being the worst thing I've read in maybe 2 years.

Definitely a favorite.

    Sam Crescent is an automatic buy for me. I love her Curvy series and this one is no exception. What starts out as a marriage of convenience between Rafe and Ellis slowly turns into something more. He needs a wife and she needs the money, but he leaves out one important thing. When his step mother tries to take over control of his father's company, things get ugly! The one important thing comes out and Rafe is scared he will lost Ellis. Will he?

    Awwwwww worthy book! I really enjoy this book. I love Sam Crescent books but this one was very enjoyable. Is a chance encounter kind of story mixed in with Cinderella almost. Our hero is bound and determined not to let his father's Legacy go to his mother or the board. So he comes up with this scheme and our heroine is the only way it would work. She is smart but a little docile and full of gentleness and kindness. I loved this book. Ends in HEA.
