Overview

Sex wasn't supposed to be part of the deal...

Three years into a marriage of convenience, Molly's high-powered CEO husband wants to add a new term to their marriage agreement. Sex--without any messy emotional entanglements. But weekly sex with Luke, despite their carefully negotiated terms, is likely to get messy eventually.

Content in a mutually beneficial arrangement, Molly isn't going to fall for Luke the way she fell for an old lover, only to be crushed in the end. She vows to stay strong, no matter how much intimacy develops between them in bed. When her old lover returns, finally wanting a real relationship, Molly has the chance to give her heart to a man who will accept it.

It's too bad she now wants to give it to her husband, who has never admitted her heart is what he wants.

Noelle handwrote her first romance novel in a spiral-bound notebook when she was twelve, and she hasn’t stopped writing since. She has lived in eight different states and currently resides in Virginia, where she teaches English, reads any book she can get her hands on, and offers tribute to a very spoiled cocker spaniel.

She loves travel, art, history, and ice cream. After spending far too many years of her life in graduate school, she has decided to reorient her priorities and focus on writing contemporary romances.

I love this story! Ms. Adams does a very good job writing female charecters in a way that makes them endearing to all readers. Molly is smart, gutzy, and surprizingly down to earth despite the situation. Normally, most authors would have written her snobby, blonde, and stuck on her looks. I appreciated that she didn't. And Luke? Not my cup of tea but by the end of the book your heart will MELT! Well, most women will melt right away, but more thoughtful readers will find themselves going through a gradual process of being won over by his mannerisms and the way he eventually opens himself up to love and deeper sexual contact. A note: This book is a bit more graphic than some of Adams' other books I've read thus far but she balances things nicely so that the interactions between Luke and Molly are not stale and prudish, but they do not come off as cheap and sleasy either. As an older currently single reader, I appreciate this. Many Contemporary Romance writers assume their demographic these days is under 40, so they naturally write more 50 Shades which can be a turnoff. I am a HUGE fan of Noelle now and am seeking out everything she's written thus far. As far as the whole arranged marriage subgenre, I think she has found her unique niche!!! She can take the whole premise, which other authors make seem so unreal and fake, and convince you that stuff like this does happen AND it can happen to YOU!!! Excellent work by a talented writer!

Fun story demonstrating the value of friendship preceding love....and waiting on sex is not a bad thing in a relationship. Sometimes, too, a "lost love" is not worth worrying over!

Thoroughly enjoyable read! Characters were engaging and the plot flowed easily. Definitely recommend this to your friends and reading buddies.

The plot of the book was good but i feel like her transitions and the way the book was written wasnt that great. She could have made in more of his perspective. The way they both said that they loved each was so sudden and their actions didnt really show that they loved each other, it just showed that they cared for the other person. Also i think it should have started from the beginning when they made the deal because it would have emphasized the plot more.

I was pleasantly surprised by this novella. Molly and Luke's story is well written, makes perfect sense for them and works well. Introduce love and true caring into a marriage of convenience and the whole agreement becomes a true marriage!

A clean love story with a different twist. After living in the same apartment, it took them 3 years to really discover each other.
