Couldn't Imagine How These Two Would Work Things Out
on August 18, 2014
WHAT I DID FOR LOVE is the fifth book in the Wynett, Texas series. This book is only loosely connected to the others and can be read on its own without missing anything. Georgie York and Bramwell Shepard were teenage stars together on a TV series. Georgie had a crush on Bram that he ruthlessly demolished. She has hated him ever since. While Georgie was the good girl, her marriage to the perfect guy failed when he left her for another woman. Now Georgie has to deal with the press and tabloids. When Georgie and Bram meet up again, the antagonism continues. One night the two are in Las Vegas together and wake up naked and married. Georgie, tired of the press, convinces Bram to stay married to help them both. Bram's self destructive actions destroyed his career and he is trying to recover. Being married to Georgie allows him to have the opportunity to resurrect his career.
Georgie and Bram are a very interesting couple. This book is very much focused on the characters relationship. The two fight constantly. It takes Georgie quite a while to take control of her life with other people, but she is strong with Bram. These two people know too much about one another but truly don't know one another until the book starts. By the end of the book, the two are able to merge their entire history into something they can live with.
The book is clever and sexy. The scene where Bram and Georgie avoid the paparazzi by going into a high end adult store and end up modeling underwear is super hot.
My only complaint about this book is that Bram has a lot of baggage that I didn't feel got enough resolution. I felt that after all the grief he gave Georgie that she forgave him way too quickly.
Despite that, the pages of this book turned quickly. One thing I really like about Phillips books is that I tend not to like characters in the beginning that I end up really liking in the end. This book was that way. I really felt that I had traveled on a journey with these characters and was satisfied with their happy ending.
