TO BUY A WIFE is another superb SciFi novel concocted by Ms. Klein. I would put it in the same vein as Margaret Atwood’s Handmaid’s Tale, not because the story is similar, far from it, but because it is an intelligent reflection on the condition of women. TO BUY A WIFE is extremely well written, fast-paced, and the story flows very smoothly. There are also quite a few very pleasant surprises, especially in the case of Hudson. I liked both characters a lot. I am not a SciFi reader, and again KC Klein penned a superb story that had me racing to the end!
Stop Possible Spoilers ))))) Thanks
I enjoyed reading this book but it's not that dark read. Hero saves heroine but keeping her is the hard part. She wants to leave to re join the rebellion that got her imprisoned and married to the hero. Hero is determined to keep the first woman he has a chance to be with in his 34 yrs! I will say this, hero was book boyfriend material. Smarter than she gave him credit for and very protective. Loved the climax and ending. Side story is heroine seeking to reunite with her only living relative and avenge her parent's death. It all wraps out very well at the end. It's not clean read but not dirty read either. This dystopia land had a wierd claiming tradition and some 3rd base action goes on, but no full blown sexual scenes. I just loved the story and how hero wins heroine over. Plus, love dystopia romances. So to me all and all it was a four star read.
Really good. I loved Hudson. He was super tough as the circumstances required but showed a softer side (eventually) with his wife...the one he bought. This story really captured my attention but it ended too quickly. I did not realize it was so short or that their story continues in book 2.
Our literary hottie, Hudson, saves the distrusting protagonist, Lake (yes Lake), from certain death. Will she betray him? There is more than just her loyalty to the rebellion on the line...
The world building leaves a lot to the imagination, it has the feel of a western *ew*. Westerns are not my thing, so I just redirected my imagination a bit. There is fantasy/sci-fi element so that helped run off the cowboys.
There is instant attraction, I mean Lake is stop traffic gorgeous, but believe it or not, no insta-love. Lake (yes Lake) is a bit Mary Sue but not overly annoying; her situation and back story inspire sympathy.
Although I don't know him well enough to swoon, Hudson definitely gets a spot on the book boyfriend shelf. Muscular, easy on the eyes, just, kind but tough... sounds good to me. I'm calling To Buy A Wife "wannabe erotica", it's hasn't quite crossed over into the dark side but it's definitely steamy.
