What did fall a little flat for me was how it progressed. I liked that he was really working hard at the beginning to get her to choose him. I liked that she chose Collin, but he said no. She instinctively knew something wouldn't work with Jackson. I don't know if any woman would have looked at a guy who didn't need the money and truly thought he was doing this because she was desperate. One, why would he care...he doesn't know her. Two, men generally run from marriage, not volunteer for it...especially with a stranger. And three, no matter what you promised, no where in that promise did it say "to look out for her means that you need to go to extremes like marriage to a stranger".
The supporting characters were great. I loved Chris, Pam, Jamie, Collin, and Jen. You don't get tons of them in the story, but what you get is entertaining. I like how she thought Jackson and Chris were a couple, then gets drunk at her wedding after learning they are not. I like how Jen and Pam teach her how to seduce Jackson and the pool scene one of my favorites. Those that knew what was really going on didn't agree with it, but at the end of the day hoped Jackson would realize what a great woman he married.
What didn't work for me was the fact that he just blindly believed Heather. Even when he wasn't sure he didn't just ask Madison or even follow up by going to the shelter to check on her story. He met the kids, he'd been to her house, he saw her car, he spoke to her best friend, but he still thought she was a greedy money hungry woman? Just because of one party where she was dressed up? Even his brother wasn't supportive of his doing this for Heather...you think he would have been smarter...and he came across as smart except for seeing through Heather. Then the whole not wanting to commit was just annoying...he had every symptom of loving this woman, but it took him to nearly the end to realize he wanted her. Last, the end was also a little abrupt. I expected something more...it wasn't bad, just I didn't understand what happened after he left the office and showed up at her house. He has Adam, a deed, and is just in time to stop Heather on Madison's birthday? Uh, exactly how and when did all of this happen in one day?
So, to sum it up, yes, it was fun reading it, but still had some things that kept it from being a great book for me. I by no means am the majority and expect that others will enjoy it more.
This was a quick read that required no brain. There wasn't much to it, just your basic girl-meets-guy, girl-gets-involved-with-guy-despite-not-wanting-to, guy-does-something-to-upset-girl, girl-and-guy-fix-it and happily ever after.
While the two main characters seemed somewhat fleshed out, the secondary and other characters weren't. The storyline had a lot of potential if the author had wanted to create something deeper and more meaningful.
I would consider this a 'beginner story' for the writer and would encourage her to continue finding her 'comfortable area' within the genre she chooses.
Like I said, quick no-brainer. It's not something I'll read again and I'm glad that I didn't pay anything for it.
Madison needs a husband fast. Someone who can put on the performance of his life...someone tall, dark and temporary.
Madison needs to be married for at least 3 months before her 30th birthday to receive 2 million dollars from her grandfather's estate. Time is running out. Madison's friend, Jen, goes husband shopping with her to a couple bars one night. Jen points out Collin and Jackson. Madison was far too attracted to Jackson, so she asked his friend Collin to marry her. He laughed at the idea of marrying someone he didn't know. Jackson on the other hand, said no problem... even though she never asked him. Since time was running out, she had no choice but to consider Jackson...
What Madison doesn't know is that Jackson is actually doing Madison's cousin Heather a favor by offering to marry Madison. You see, if Madison doesn't get the 2 million, then Heather gets it! SOOOO - we can all see this happening. You see Madison and Jackson start to act like a loving couple, even sharing a bed... too Madison a few tries to get him there though LOL. As time moves on, you see that this is going to explode soon... and it does. One of the issues I had was that I wanted more. I think the book could have drawn me in even more if it didn't skip a month in a matter of a page. The end was a little predictable, but I still enjoyed it.
I liked the chemistry I could feel between Madison and Jackson, and then I also liked the secondary characters, Jaime, Jen, Collin, Chris, and Pam. I am not good with names, and I finished reading this book at 4am... so for me to remember their names, they made an impression on me!
Overall, it could have been a longer book by not skipping such large time periods, but it was a solid book. I would recommend it to anyone needing a light easy read.
I thought it was a mostly cute story with some really unbelievable aspects - (minor spoiler) such as the fact that no one, and I mean no one, can sign annulment papers and have the marriage ended on the same day. And wouldn't Madison have had to sign them, too?
Overall some fun parts and some eye-rolling parts; didn't hate it but I didn't love it, either. Recommended when you're looking for a light read.
