Great Story and Characters
A Wedded Arrangement (Convenient Marriages, #3) - Noelle Adams

Savannah/Van wondered if her story looked like a cheesy romantic world. Smart-mouthed girl from the wrong side of the track meets spoiled rich boy. There is conflict, banter, and misunderstanding ensue until they both change for the better, overcoming their differences and coming together. Her story was like that except for the part about overcoming difficulties and falling in love. And the bliss. She hadn’t much of that over the past nine months. She had married. She found her own spoiled rich guy to marry. She had despised Lance Carlyle for most of her life. He was the only son of one of the richest families in Green Valley. He spent thirty four years getting everything he wanted. Savannah had got out of Green Valley as soon as she could. She had earned a college degree and an MFA in filmmaking but she moved back home at twenty six because her parents needed her.  Lance had never left town. His corporate consulting business was already thriving. Most of the time they acted like the other didn’t exist. But every now and again Savannah made a smart remark not quite under her breathe, which Lance always responded to. Savannah was surprised when last year Lance approached her last year with a proposal of marriage. Lance wanted nothing to do with his parents. Than his grandmother died and left him sole beneficiary of her fortune. To get the money he had to be married a year to get the money. So he found the most financially desperate women he knew

if he didn’t like her. Her parents were drowning in bills from her mother’s illness, Savannah was already drowning in student debts and credit card. On the day they married Savannah got a check for $200,000 which paid off her debt and her parents debt. On the day they signed divorce papers -three months from now-she’d get another check for the same amount. For the last nine months savannah had been living in Lance’s lakeside condo. Savannah was attracted to lance even though she didn’t want to be and didn’t like Lance. One thing she did have to do was attend functions with lance and act like they were in love. There was one condition Savannah demanded going into the marriage no sex - she didn’t want to be laughed at when Lance cheated on her since she was his wife. Lance was not happy about nine months of forced celibacy.  

I loved this book. It was a fun easy read. I loved Lance and Savannah together and how they interacted. I loved the pace and plot. I loved seeing Lance and Savannah both grow and work on themselves. I loved Savannah’s parents, they seemed so sweet. I thought it was sad that lance avoided his parents whenever he could but understood why. I didn’t like Lance’s father but liked his sister even less. His business was thriving but she was a condensating royal jerk!!! I was glad to see Lance defend Savannah against his father. Just so sad for Lance. I loved how Savannah comforted lance when they got home. I didn’t want to put this down unless I had to.  I loved the characters and the ins and outs of this book and I highly recommend it.

Book Summary:

 

With three months remaining of her marriage of convenience, Savannah is ready to say goodbye to her spoiled rich boy of a husband. He's annoying and argumentative and used to always getting his way. Sure, he's hot. And maybe occasionally a little bit sweet. But she doesn't want to stay married to him. Not at all. He needed a wife for a year so he could inherit his grandmother's fortune, and she needed to pay off her family's debts. That's all their marriage has ever been about. So she really needs to stop falling into bed with him.

 

 

 

Enjoy a fragment:

“Mornin’,” Lance said from behind her. He came striding into the kitchen, looking obnoxiously handsome in a pair of tailored charcoal-gray trousers and a black crewneck sweater. He usually wore suits to work, but he must not have any appointments with clients that morning. They were leaving for the wedding midafternoon, and he probably didn’t want to have to change out of a suit.
“Something wrong with the juice?”
“Yes, there’s something wrong with it. You put it back in the refrigerator when it was empty.”
He was filling a travel mug with coffee, but he glanced over his shoulder to scan the bottle she still held.
“It’s not empty.”
“It might as well be.”
“Maria is coming today. She’ll restock the refrigerator.”
“But I was going to have a glass right now. Why would you put an empty container back in the refrigerator?”
“It’s not empty.” His eyebrows were lifted just slightly in a typical Lance look. Superior and slightly annoyed.  “There’s half a glass left in there. Why would I have wasted it?”
“This is one sip. Not half a glass.”
He let out an exasperated exhale and reached up to grab a small juice glass off a shelf. Then he stepped over so he was right in front of her, took the juice out of her hand, and poured the remainder into the glass. In the morning, right after he showered, was the only time of day when his hair was tamed into some sort of order. He always combed it back neatly while it was damp, like maybe he actually thought it would stay where he put it. He looked sleeker—harder, just slightly dangerous—without the thick auburn curls in wild disorder around his face.
He also smelled way too good. Clean and expensive and somehow better than men were supposed to smell. She breathed him in but didn’t let it distract her from her justifiable indignation. He handed her the glass with a pointed expression. It wasn’t half, but it was close. She swallowed the juice down in one gulp. It was a much bigger swallow than she normally would have taken, but she had an argument to win just now.
“One sip.” He met her eyes directly, and they held the gaze as an unspoken challenge. Then—damn him—the corner of his mouth twitched up, and he let out a huff so soft she barely heard it. But she knew what it was. Scowling, she set the juice glass in the sink and grabbed her coffee and granola bar.
“It’s not funny.”
“It’s kind of funny. Are we secretly a couple from a sitcom?” She was struggling not to laugh in response to the irrepressible amusement in his eyes, but that just made her more annoyed. Damn the man. Making her laugh just when she was about to win an argument. “I know you’re used to thinking only of yourself, but it would be nice if you’d acknowledge that I live here too and that putting mostly empty containers back into the refrigerator is rude and insensitive.”
“I must be growing on you. It wasn’t so long ago that you assumed I could never be anything except rude and insensitive.” He took his coffee and walked with her to the entryway of the condo. He was smiling for real now. Looking way too cocky. Like he’d somehow come out of this encounter the winner. He hadn’t.
She slid on the pair of black ankle boots she’d been wearing the day before and had left by the door. They pulled together her slim-cut black pants and gray sweater. She wanted to look decent since they’d be driving up to Virginia later for the wedding. Lance had been putting his shoes on too, but now he was scanning her out of the corner of his eye. “What?” she demanded.
“We match today.” His mouth quirked up again.
She looked down at herself. And then over at him. He was right. The colors were reversed, but they were both wearing the same shades of gray and black. Her belly fluttered with a flurry of butterflies. For no reason at all. She reached down for her leather bag on the floor and tried to think of something clever to say.
“It can only work to our benefit,” Lance continued. “People will really believe we’re growing into an old married couple.”
“Oh, shut up and stop smirking. And don’t think you’re forgiven about the orange juice.” As retorts went, that wasn’t one of her best, but it was all she could manage at the moment.

A Wedded Arrangement (Convenient Marriages, #3)A Wedded Arrangement by Noelle Adams
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is book #3 in the Convenient Marriages series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. For reader understanding of the series, I recommend reading these in order.

Savannah is breathing a sigh of relief. She is just months away from being married to a man she is madly attracted to but can barely stand. Growing up together, they had a history long before all of this came to be, and maybe it is time to let the past go.

Lance knows his time with his amazing wife is almost up. They got married so he could collect his inheritance. He definitely got the better end of the bargain, his wife is the literal light in his life.

This story was all romance should be. Totally emotional, yet with the heat turned up to the highest setting. Each page had me eagerly trying to will them to get together forever. The main characters were perfect for one another. Both their stories more serious than initially let on. I found it to be this authors best work to date.

Noelle Adams continues to do what she does best. Appeal to the heart while intriguing the mind. Savannah and Lance combine a clueless angst with emotional connection that makes for unpredictable romance. She thought she knew what she wanted until romance got in the way. He was on the verge of having all his dreams come true until love threw him a curveball. Can a marriage of convenience be the beginning of happily ever after? Adams gives less temptation and more heart with haunting results.

How to Marry a Marquess (Wedded by Scandal) (Volume 3) - Stacy Reid

Lady Evie Chesterfield has been crazy about Lord Richard Maitland, Marquees of Westfall, her brother’s best friend, since she was 16. Over the years, they became close friends. Evie became someone Richard could rely on and go to. When his reputation is destroyed by his final act of defiance on society’s expectation by claiming the illegitimate daughter he didn’t know he had, he pulls his friendship away from Evie.

I really loved this book. The characters had me absolutely engrossed in the book. I couldn’t put it down until it was done. I did find myself mad at Richard several times throughout the story for his ignorant treatment of Evie, but forgave him by the end:) I highly recommend.
