Wedding planner Caroline Duplessis sinks all her hopes, dreams and finances for the future success of her budding company Weddings Divine into the event of the year.
But when Brandon D’Estrahan’s intended leaves him at the altar, she also leaves Caroline holding enough debt that her fledgling company is on the edge of bankruptcy. And the second mortgage her parents took out on their home will leave them homeless.
So when the groom, who needs an arm ornament and hostess to further his business connections, proposes a way out, Caroline sees no other option but to take it.
Marriage to him for one year and she will walk away with financial security. But will their marriage last the year?
Or, like his former fiancee’, will she find the need to leave him, too?
I have to say I enjoyed this book, Caroline and Brandon's marriage is perfect on paper but when feelings become involved will the love they have for each other be enough for will stipulations put in the marriage contract be an end all.
I really liked Caroline she knows what she wants and tries so damn hard to make Brandon happy and get to know the real him. Brandon finds himself falling for Caroline but he tends to be standoffish and even self serving at times. He does have his reasons for being that way.
I felt for Caroline when she made the decision to leave Brandon, I also applauded him when he finally went after her.
The secondary characters are great and added to the story and growth of the characters.
Overall a great quick read which leaves you satisfied.
I rate this book 4 out of 5 Genie Lamps
