This was such a sweet love story. I have seen this type of story done quite a few times and what made this one special was that the characters had a past together. It was less about the "fake" marriage and more about two people who always wondered what could have been and were finally able to find out. Steve and Darcy are both very likable characters and watching them fall was just a fun read. While there is a warning on the description about the adult scenes and language, this is far from a "hardcore" book and is more sweet than anything else, so do not not let that scare you away.Was this review helpful?

revived, revamped, and updated because it's such a crowd-pleaser. My guess is it predates the 1916 play (which spawned the 1925
Buster Keaton silent film, Seven Chances) and all those that have followed.
In Wanted: Wife, author Lacey Wolfe is serving up her own delightful course, the recipe tweaked and updated for the modern palate.
Darcy is more than a prop or a gag, for starters. She's strong, independent, and the arrangement - odd as it seems, even to her - is a
pragmatic one. She needs the cash.
Steven is a decent guy, handsome and successful, though more focused on learning the family business and taking over for his aging
grandfather than actively pursuing a social life. His focus on business is what raises the old man's red flag. Whether the old gent has the
energy or the sound mind to stay at the helm, he decides to hang in there until he's sure his grandson is taken care of on the personal
front. Only then will he hand over the reins. What follows is a charming story that explores both characters, their motivations and evolving
The question that's always lurking is this; what happens if their charade is exposed? Will everything evaporate or is there something
substantial behind the smoke and mirrors?

Steven wants to inherit his grandfathers company/business but grandpa isn't willing to hand over the company unless Steven has a wife. With no one really serious in his life he decides to place a help wanted ad in the local newspaper... WANTED: WIFE.
Darcy is really low on her luck, she is estranged from her parents and family and has been for the last year. She has no job and has had no luck in finding one, she can't afford her bills and is about to lose her apartment. Looking through the wanted ads for a job she comes across this crazy ad for someone needing a wife. Deciding that she can't stoop much lower than that, she decides to find out more.
Darcy and Steven meet up for an interview to find out they new each other from high school. Steven had crushed on Darcy all through school. Deciding to try and make this fake engagement work shouldn't be to hard. They need to keep things friendly and platonic so no one gets hurt in the end. That proves to be quite hard with all the time they spend together and the little charade they are forced to put on with kissing and being "in love".
Lacey did an AMAZING job with this book, I didn't want it to come to an end.
