A Negotiated Marriage by Ms. Adams was on Amazon's top Free Kindle Books list. I decided to download it after reading a really emotional book and needed something fun and easy to read. A Negotiated Marriage was exactly what I wanted. I read it in less than 90 minutes and it was an extremely easy read.

Molly and Luke have been married for three years, but not in the traditional way. They are married for convince and appearances. Luke is CEO of a company and needs a wife on his arm to look like a family man. Molly had her heartbroken by a man who didn't love her in return. Having a marriage without love, or sex was what she wanted in Luke too. After three years, the two decide to change their arrangement and become sexually involved. Their emotions toward each other change and their loveless marriage soon changes into something else.

Like I said above, this is an extremely fast read. You start the book three years into Luke and Molly's marriage and the scenes are quick and short. The book has some erotic scenes that were not over the top and the dialogue was not cheesy. I enjoyed both characters and would have like to have more depth into Luke; he was kind of a mystery to me. He had potential to be an amazing book boyfriend. ;)

I think this is a great free book I recommend to anyone wanting a fun read for FREE. If you enjoy books such as this I also recommend Marriage by Mistake by Abby Gaines

I give A Negotiated Marriage 3 Stars.

I admit I am a sucker for a good "arrangement" story - and the high marks given this reasonably priced e-book seemed too good to be true. And they were. This was a total non-story. Nothing happened in this book. The "best" part of the book, the most interesting part, occurs before it even starts. With the arranged marriage itself. The book only covers the end of the story - when they start having sex. The writing style was dull and lifeless - which didn't help. I felt like I was reading one long synopses. Very choppy writing. No description, dry dry dry. The author doesn't even describe the characters themselves adequately - what do they look like for cripes sake?

The female protagonist "whimpers" and "snarls" her way through the book, while her male counterpart "makes throaty sounds". Ugh. This really comes off as having been written by a 16 year old boy. Perhaps that's why the female protagonist was so hateful and difficult to like. She was spoiled, self centered, quick to anger (for no reason), and not very bright. If I were her "husband" I would run from her as quickly as possible - far, far away.

I can't really go into all the reasons I didn't like this book. There are too many. No side characters. Awful, awful writing style. Same words used over & over & over again. Poor editing (there were a lot of typos). And of course, NO STORY. Nothing to see here! Move on!

Molly has been married to Luke for three years. She had been badly burned by a former lover who did not return her feelings. Luke's offer of marriage, came at just the right time in her life. Swearing never to fall in love again. She settled down to an uncomplicated and romance free marriage with Luke.

Then suddenly after three years, Luke wants to alter their arrangement. By adding sex into the mix. Molly agrees to the new arrangement, after all she does miss sex, and at least here with Luke it would be free from any emotional ties. Wouldn't it?

I liked this story. I liked Luke and Molly, they were easy to relate to. As another reviewer commented this is a bit Mills & Boon-ish. Except for the stronger language. The sex scenes are nicely portrayed as well.

If I had a problem with this, it was that the story was a bit light on detail. The reader is told a lot without being shown. I would liked to have seen Molly question Luke as to why he suddenly had asked to have sex with her after three years. It also didn't make sense that she would not have been a little more concerned as he had been having sex with call girls. Most women would have required an assurance that he was healthy. These things are very briefly referred to via Molly's thoughts. But that seemed inadequate to me. But this is a very pleasant read overall.

I really wanted to enjoy this book because I personally like reading stories about arranged or negotiated marriages that work out in the end. It's a common plot used in romance books, and what differentiates the good ones from the bad ones is the way that the plot is written and developed. Sadly, this one missed the mark entirely.

I was really surprised to read that the author has been writing for many years because, in all honesty, this book read as though it was the author's very first attempt at writing and self-publishing. The characters were very undeveloped, and a main problem with that is the dialogue. The main character Molly's thought processes were truncated and incomplete and it was really hard for me to believe that this was supposed to be a sophisticated and successful businesswoman. Not to mention her poor decision regarding how she conducts her business investigations.

I think this author also read some Harlequin authors who will begin a story in the present, then in the next chapter go back to a flashback to set up the background setting to explain the history of a character. I don't have a problem with that when it's done well, but it's so obvious that this author just saw something that another author did and tried to copy it. Only she didn't know how to execute it.

I can't stress enough that the plot was cheesy, the dialogue was cheesy (I don't think even teenagers talk like this), and the characters were also very disappointing. There is nothing believable about anything in this plot and if I weren't stuck in an airplane for over 4 hours with nothing else to do, I wouldn't have finished this.
