Casey Greene is desperate to make a drastic change in her life in order to get out from under the emotional blackmail her family uses to keep her under their thumbs. Marriage to the man she's been with for years seems like the way to go. So she agrees to appear on a new reality show where brides blindside their men with marriage proposals.

Unfortunately for Casey, she's dumped on live TV rather than married off. In a split decision made out of compassion for Casey, Adam Carmichael proposes to her and marries her in what he thought would be a fake marriage. Oops. Now a man who never thought he'd marry is very married. Casey likes Adam, but she's not interested in living a loveless marriage. However, the marriage does have big pros for both, so the two strike a deal to stick it out for a month. Are they really just sticking it out or could this be an accidental love match?

I really liked this story. I related to Casey, I get what it's like to make a drastic life change to get away from people that aren't good for you or are holding you back. While marriage was certainly drastic, I understood her motivation. I liked watching her evolve from being a push-over into a stronger woman; if she'd started out like that there wouldn't have been much of a story. She's a little TOO perfect, though (sainthood nomination perfect), which does hurt her credibility as a character to some extent. Adam was an emotionally distant man, and I was happy to watch him grow and expand in depth. The minor characters and side romance were as fun to cheer on as the main was.

All in all, this was a fun read. I enjoyed it.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
MARRIED BY MISTAKE by Abby Gaines

April 23, 2007

Rating **** (4 Stars)

This one almost qualifies as chick lit: Two friends decide to go on a reality show where the contestants are given the opportunity to propose to their unsuspecting mates on live television, and then if the answer is yes, they proceed to get married. It's a crazy scheme, but Casey Greene wants to get married. Her fiancé has been procrastinating about setting a date so she thought why not? They were planning on getting married anyway!

Well, "the best-laid plans of mice and men often go awry" as it was once said...

Casey's fiancé says NO on live television, while the other brides have their wishes come true, including Casey's friend Brodie-Ann.

Millionaire businessman Adam Carmichael, who had briefly met Casey backstage, is also one of the producers of the show (his cousin created the series) and feels a NO answer may be disastrous for the show. So, to save face he jumps into the limelight and proposes to Casey instead. A shocked Casey says "yes", and what was supposed to be a fake wedding to save the show turns out to be legit.

So, now they need to annul the marriage, but in the meantime they have to make it look "real" to the adoring public. Adam is one of Memphis's most eligible bachelors and so this marriage is pretty much on the radar of every woman in town, as well as the media, who will not leave the two alone. So, it's time for both to act as if they are in love... fortunately, the two feel a deep chemistry, but neither can imagine staying married to each other. It didn't make any sense, because the two had just met!

I give this story a 3.5 but you can't really do that in this star rating system. I found the story premise refreshing and the characters real and I was throughly invested in them. I would have liked to give it 4 or 5 star review but it dragged a bit in places.

While I was invested in the characters and I like the TV Reality Series, I couldn't quite buy into the most eligible bachlor in Tennessee getting himself into this situation even to save his familty business and his investors. He should have been way more savvy and not been Married by Mistake.

Otherwise it was a sweet and inventive story line. I found Casey's giving nature a little over the top, but Families members and situations can do that to a softy. However, she did grow a backbone and that helped to make it refreshing and entertaining.

My Advise Buy it. You'll most like really enjoy it.

I liked the premise of this story. The rich man saving the day for the average girl. I liked Casye's character way more than Adam's. I rooted for them to get together. Therefore, the biggest disappointment was the way the plot was handled with their marriage being annulled and then really not annulled. That was too confusing. The sex was also too much. I understand character's have attraction. I also understand the couple was married. But it could have been handled more tastefully. Adam's mother was a great character, and I liked she found love again at the end. Not a book I'd particularly recommend, but then I read it to the end unlike the previous three I downloaded which I promptly deleted.

Married By Mistake is as formulaic as 2+2=FISH, 3+3=EIGHT, 7+7=TRIANGLE. There wasn't anything compelling or driving about the story. Once you get past premise of the jilted bride is saved by the "roguish knight in rusted armor" it falls predictable and hollow. The contrived problems of our protagonist couple are nowhere as interesting as the subplot relationship of the older couple Eloise and Sam. Even the conflict with Adam's family is more interesting.

Is this the formula for written romance? I've read this same formula more times than I care to count. Even in movies they follow this formula. Touted as Harlequin Super Romance, where was the SUPER? I remember as a kid seeing Harlequin novels, knowing they what they were but never caring what was on those pages. Does that mean my younger version of myself is smart than my current version of myself?

This review isn't knocking Abby Gaines, because it was the writing that kept me reading. It's just the predictability of the romance genre. For most romance novels if you've read one you've read them all. There are notable exceptions which made me think romance novels aren't that bad. But I'm starting to realize this really was the exception and not the rule.

I read this book based solely on the title, Married by Mistake. Who even gets married by mistake? This couple is so in love with each other that it doesn't make since when they breakup. Which I knew from the first page; don't they always?

For the entire book I teetered on whether I thought it was okay or didn't like. One thing shattered any chance.
