Rating 3.5/5 stars
Pub. Date June 10th 2013
Free-spirited sex therapist Brianna Ballantine has four days to find a fiancé so she can inherit her birth mother’s Italian villa. Commitment is not on the agenda. Writing her sex therapy book and signing legal papers are. And once all is said and done, she’ll return home to Scotland.
For finance guru Tomas Richards, relationships have been a bad investment—give him stocks and shares any day. When Tomas offers a marriage of convenience to help Brianna secure her inheritance, the sizzle between the sheets promises an affair to remember, despite family complications at every turn.
But Tom must convince Brianna to stay, and make this Italian affair a lifelong commitment.
First I would like to say that Brianna loses her stuff, is a little messy and not even a bit organised. I didn't like that but some people can help it. She and Tom are opposites when they first met. He has his list of things to do when he is on vacation. She doesn't even book a hotel.
This is your book if you like marriages that happen because both parts will earn something and not because they are in love but with time become real. It's marriage of convenience romance novel. I fell asleep while I was reading the book (around 1:30 am) and I can't tell if that's a good or bad thing. I mean you read to someone to sleep or you sleep because a book is just not the one to keep you awake, for you at least.
We never found out what happened to Brianna's biological father though. Ok the mother had been found but what about the father. Some questions were left unanswered. I still don't understand how they fell in love but I liked it and that's why the book doesn't have a lower rating.
It might be the second book in the series but it can be read as stand alone .I want to read the next book which will be Alex's.
