READ THIS!!!!! its Fantastic!!!!!!!!!!
Charlotte's husband of ten years has just left her. She's been a stay at home mom with the three children she loves and now has to figure out what to do with her life. She gets the idea of becoming a sorta high class escort to make money in order to pay her bills and feed her family. Her first client is Mitch, but Charlotte ends up getting more than she bargained for.
Mitch is the CEO of a very successful business who travels often and for months at a time. He doesn't have time to date, but would like a girlfriend to spend time with when he can. He runs an ad for this position and its Charlotte who answers the ad. The minute he sees her in the bar, he's floored by his attraction. After a drink, they go upstairs and he describes the position he'd like her to fill. He wants her under contract to be at his beck and call when he wants her. He'll pay her very well and in return, she'll see him exclusively and will agree to never developing feelings for him. Yeah, Mitch gets more than he bargained for also.
Mitch has a reason he doesn't do relationships. We learn about his reason and its really sad, but we don't get this until after he realizes he's falling for Charlotte and runs. Charlotte's been hurt before, and she's not interested in it happening again. Will these two realize what they have and fight for the other??
I adored Mitch. He did make me mad, but the man can apologize. He's really a sweetheart underneath his tough exterior. Charlotte is awesome. She's a great leading female character. Not whiney and not stupid. She's bright and funny. She has a hilarious group of friends that will make you laugh. But honestly, the funniest parts of this book are the text message conversations. Especially the ones between Charlotte ans Mitch. Priceless!
Overall it's a really great story. It's told by both Mitch and Charlotte which is fun because it always helps to get both character's POVs. Even though it is book one in the series, it's a standalone. The next book is about CiCi, Charlotte's sister and Kyle, the VP of Mitch's company.
The heroine in this story is a down on her luck, newly single mom. She has to make a very desperate decision during extremely desperate times in order to support her children. In turn she meets a man who only wants a woman under his terms- a contract. The terms of the contract state that he doesn't do feelings, relationships, kids, or marriage. What a GREAT surprise they are both in for!!!! Great read- will make you laugh, cry, and live at the same time.
Under Contract is an engaging, funny, and heartwarming story all wrapped up in a book that will have you turning the pages in one sitting until you get to "the end".
The characters Mitch and Charlotte are well written and Charlotte has the spunk that you come to love from reading any of this author's books.
Mitch doesn't know what he is getting into when Charlotte signs on the dotted line, but you will be getting into some awesome reading when you buy this book!
Charlotte O’Brien might just be one of my favorite heroines – she is smart, funny, a loyal sister, daughter and friend. But above all she is a mom who loves her kids fiercely and will do whatever is necessary to ensure their well-being. I loved that she was scared $hitless, but it didn’t make her fearful – it made her stronger as a woman and mother. She was left a mess and did something that I believe is embedded in most women’s DNA – she cleaned it up.
Dear God I knew Mitchell Colton was going to be an @$$hole and he didn’t disappoint me. But below that cool surface there was such goodness and that was what pulled me in. He was an alpha for sure, but his heart popped open immediately for Charlotte and everything that came with her. I loved that side of his personality – the real part of him. He was a still an @$$ at times, but even the place where the bad emotions originated felt genuine to me.
Together Charlotte and Mitchell were like Centre Courte at Wimbledon. Their banter was funny, sweet, vitriolic, hot and heartbreaking. They spoke their minds and made each other laugh. For the reader it was better than watching Federer/Nadal on Championship Sunday. You can’t help but be sucked in and watch this relationship as it does grow.
Jacquelyn Ayres did a wonderful job of building her supporting characters, which will span the arc of the Green Eyed Girls series. They reminded me of the people from my early childhood in a small Massachusetts town — mouthy and loud, who loved their friends and family to the nth degree. Charlotte’s sister Cici is a revelation. She is a fortress of a woman who loves her people fiercely — if she isn’t insulting you, then watch your back because she might kill you. Mitchell’s Gram is just a delight – she is the person who gives Mitchell his heart and soul. Happy Jack O’Brien is the best of every wonderful father rolled into one – he’s helped form his daughters into the independent powerhouses that they are, but is there to pinch hit when they really need him.
Each of these characters fit into the plot of story perfectly, but it’s still Charlotte and Mitchell who bring it all together. How this contract/relationship progresses is at the heart of the story. When they are not together, the reader feels their loneliness and anxiety. When they are together, the energy ranges from a toasty blanket just out of the dryer to that prickly heat, which makes you want to shed every bit of clothing and seek comfort from a cool cotton sheet.
In the week since I read it, Under Contract quickly became one of my go-to books. I pop it open, slide the bar and start reading from a random spot. No matter the page I land on, this book pulls me back in and takes me to Charlotte & Mitchell’s world, where things are definitely not a fairy tale, but families love and laugh, support each other and when needed – kick each other’s @$$. Grab Under Contract and I hope that you enjoy it as much as I did.
