Description

Jack and I, we did everything backward. The day he lured me into his office - which was also the first day we met - he proposed. You'd think a guy who looked like him - a bit cold maybe, but still striking and very unattainable - would only ask the love of his life to marry him, right? You'd think he must be madly in love.

THIS WAS SOOOO DAMN GOOD

In the romance genre there are so many ‘fake’ relationship books out there.. however it doesn’t stop me from buying them, happily eating them up and love, love loving the good ones. And I’ve got to say that I think this weighty sweet slow-burn is absolutely THE BEST of the bunch because it’s got hours and hours of yummy feels as Jack and Rose both enter their fake marriage for very different reasons. Two total opposites.. Rose was fun, talkative, friendly, open and kind.. Jack was closed-up, dark, unfriendly and was definitely hiding something. The pace of this dual POV slow-climb relationship was absolutely perfect as the anticipation for fireworks grew and grew. The ‘secret’ grenade tantalizingly hovered in the background waiting to be detonated at the worst possible time bringing heartbreak in its wake. The chemistry sizzled and sparked as they grew closer and closer. The light humor was always there adding warmth. The character growth was subtle and solid as they learned to navigate character flaws, a medical crisis, a new business and their blossoming relationship. And the passion, romance and heat was well-placed, not rushed and beautiful. The narrators were the perfect choice to bring the story and the characters to life and they definitely made this, IMO, a flawless audiobook.

Worth a credit? Well that’s the third absolute best thing about this listen along with Ella Maise’s well-crafted story and the choice of wonderful narrators.. this gem is absolutely free in the Audible Escape Package.. so grateful thanks and much love.

Your Heart Always Has A Home With Me

Marriage For One was such a wonderful surprise! I really enjoyed this marriage of convenience/enemies to lovers slow burn romance. I'm such a sucker for the prickly and gruff hero who is a giant softie on the inside, and Jack did not disappoint. He was so ornery and grumpy that it only amplified all the thoughtful and considerate things he did for Rose. I loved their banter and back and forth. Jack's "compliments" and Rose's reactions always made me laugh out loud. They balanced each other well, but also helped the other grow. Rose's playful and friendly personality contrasted so starkly with Jack's aloof and standoffish behavior, but I felt it really worked for the story.

Lance Greenfield and Stella Bloom did a wonderful job bringing Jack and Rose to life. I thought Stella Bloom's comedic timing was perfect for Rose's snarky comments and come backs. I did feel like Lance Greenfield was sometimes too intense (even during the tender moments), but otherwise he embodied grumpy Jack. The book was on the longer side and probably could have been a bit shorter, but I enjoyed Jack and Rose so much I didn't really mind. There was a scary event that tested and brought our couple closer towards the middle/end of the book that I was not expecting, and could be a potential trigger for some readers/listeners. One scene in particular (dealing with Rose's claustrophobia) brought tears to my eyes as I felt all the fear, helplessness, and pain of our characters. The big reveal made me a bit unsure of Jack and I felt like it resolved a little too easily for him. The resolution felt consistent with our character's personalities though and I appreciated that it wasn't drawn out. I would have loved to see a bit more into the future for our characters, but I was happy with how things wrapped up in the end. Overall, this was a wonderful slow burn romance!

Sex

It was almost like someone else wrote the sex scene....it should have been sexy not nasty. Just did not fit the story...

Nice love story

Love the story. The narrators were great too. Highly recommend if you are a sucker for romance. I do have one dislike which is chapter 29, the last chapter. It seemed pointless to the story. All in all, it was good listening.

WOW!

I loved this story. Jack was, interesting in a brutish kind of way, and Rose was strong, smart, fun and lovable. It was a love story from beginning to end. My only criticism is about the last 2 chapters. While I love a steamy sex scene, Chapter 29 was a total waste of my time and not needed. The last chapter started out so great, then just abruptly ended. Seriously? Maybe a short epilogue would have helped. In any case, it’s still a good story, and I liked it a lot.

Yuck....

Started off well enough I suppose, but I must agree with another review that states that it was like someone else wrote the sex scenes because of how jarringly raunchy they are apart from the rest of the story. Think of it like this: the novel is a hallmark movie most of the time then they get busy and it's like I'm watching porn hub or something, cheese and all. I'd like to add the kissing scenes to that as well. Sooo much detail on those kissing scenes....it made me want to gag. It was almost clinically detailed.

Then there's Jack, who's creepy, and a stalker, and angry all of the time. I don't mind some possessiveness...when it's within reason. But when he was jealous that his driver gave her balloons (due to a stressful time for her in the novel) I literally rolled my eyes so hard they almost came out of my head. Like he's mad at every male in the novel, even when they're clearly not interested in her.

The narration is solid. The male is good but a little too slow and too intense. I felt like when he was narrating I was listening to a Jack Reacher novel or something. Then the female narrator came in with her chick-flick, romantic comedy voice over and it was soooo jarring. Again.

I managed to finish it, but it wasn't easy.

WOW! Let me say, I never read or listen to this author before. I'm a new Fan, of hers. This book is about a fake Marriage but, it was different. It was AWESOME. The narrations brought this Book to life. I don't usually buy Audible, I have one credit left. I'm buying this one. I will never get tired of listening to this book. This is a deficient a Must Listen to Audible book.

Great Book with Slow Burn

This book was steamy at times, had me giggle at others and had me tense throughout. I usually love these narrators but the men’s Voice by Ms. Bloom always had me second guessing the mood or intentions behind her “man”’voice. It sounded kind of monotone and may have undermines the authors words. I loved the slow burn and tension in the book, I would suggest it. There were comments about it having too much gratuitous Sex, but I have no idea how anyone would have gotten that idea. They just took a while. And when things heated up, it was for me, then end of the tension. It’s a personal like and dislike and not any reflection on the actual writing.

My favorite book

I wish this book was in a series form or at least considered to be a movie. Anyway, I relate with the marriage issues this couple had and the way the wife focused on the positive side of things. The resolution and mutual understanding in between characters was right in. I actually felt inspired on doing different things in my own marriage, such as having meetings with my husband and be honest with what I wish my marriage to be alongside with his own wishes.
Great read.

1. Hälfte recht clever, 2. Hälfte zieht sich

Die Sprecher sind etwas gewöhnungsbedürftig. Er liest recht langsam und gibt seiner Stimme einen "superernsten" Ton. Sie wiederum liest teilweise übertrieben schnell, als gäb's am Ende was zu gewinnen. Das irritiert am Anfang, passt aber letztendlich zu den Charakteren.

Die Story an sich ist ganz clever und hat in der Mitte eine recht unerwartete Wendung. Allerdings ist eine Folge dieser Wendung, daß die beiden für 3 Monate keinen Sex haben dürfen und darum geht es dann in epischer Breite.

Das zieht sich wirklich endlos! Dann geht's (endlich!) zur Sache und geht von da ab auch nur noch darum. Gehört natürlich dazu, aber es ist jedes Mal epischer, weltbewegender Über-Sex und als solcher einfach übertrieben schnulzig.

Nach einer letzten, nicht ganz unerwarteten Wendung, geht's weiter mit ... Sex. Gähn. Grundsätzlich nicht ungewöhnlich für das Genre, wie gesagt, aber mir irgendwann zu öde.

Der Protagonist ist Anwalt und wurde gerade der jüngste Partner seiner Kanzlei. Ab der Hälfte des Buchs muß er aber augenscheinlich kaum noch arbeiten, kann ständig Klienten versetzen und stattdessen nur seine Frau anschmachten und buchstäblich vor ihrem Coffeeshop rumstehen.

Alles in allem eher nicht so meins. Die 2. Hälfte zieht sich echt wie Kaugummi und mir war's zu schmalzig.
