Marriage For One | 499 Pages | Adult Romance
Jack and I, we did everything backward. The day he lured me into his office-which was also the first day we met-he proposed. You’d think a guy who looked like him-a bit cold maybe, but still striking and very unattainable-would only ask the love of his life to marry him, right? You’d think he must be madly in love.
Nope. It was me he asked. A complete stranger who had never even heard of him. A stranger who had been dumped by her fiancé only weeks before. You’d think I’d laugh in his face, call him insane-and a few other names-then walk away as quickly as possible. Well…I did all those things except the walking away part.
It took him only minutes to talk me into a business deal…erm, I mean marriage, and only days for us to officially tie the knot. Happiest day of my life. Magical. Pop the champagne… Not. It was the worst day. Jack Hawthorne was nothing like what I’d imagined for myself.
I blamed him for my lapse in judgment. I blamed his eyes, the ocean blue eyes that looked straight into mine unapologetically, and that frown on his face I had no idea I would become so fascinated with in time.
It wasn’t long after he said I was the biggest mistake of his life that things started to change. No, he still didn’t talk much, but anyone can string a few words together. His actions spoke the loudest to me. And day after day my heart started to get a mind of its own.
One second he was no one. The next he became everything.
One second he was unattainable. The next he seemed to be completely mine.
One second I thought we were in love. The next it was still nothing but a lie.
After all, I was Rose and he was Jack. We were doomed from the very beginning with those names. Did you expect anything else?
Jack and Rose are now one of my favourite fictional couples. Watching in on how they both fall deeply in love with each other was one of the sweetest things ever. From the moment I finished the preview on Amazon, I knew this book was going to hook me and take away my life until I finished it, I wasn’t wrong. I became so wrapped up in the lives of Jack and Rose, in their relationship, the characters felt so, so real. They had their flaws, yet they were both so endearing. This novel is a very slow burn romance, it’s 499 pages and close on half the book you see how the characters start to fall in love with each other. With the length of the book and how long it takes Jack and Rose to admit their feelings, you would think it’d be a drag. No, not at all. It was wonderful and cute, just reading about the two of them and their lives, even if nothing in particular was happening it was still amusing.
