From USA Today and Amazon Charts bestselling author Meghan Quinn, comes a new marriage of convenience romantic comedy. This steamy, laugh out loud, enemies-to-lovers small town standalone delivers the perfect happily ever after.

He proposed . . . and I said yes.
Normally a jovial occasion for a couple in love, but this proposal has a very different feel.
Because the man that I’ll be calling my husband blew into town with one thing on his mind . . . to make my life a living nightmare.

So why did I say yes?

Well, because we both need something from each other.

Namely, I want the farm land he currently owns, and he needs a wife in order to inherit his family cabin in his grandfather’s will.

So as he so eloquently put it, my hand, for his land.

At first, I thought the idea was nuts.
Who really gets married out of convenience?
Apparently, I do.

And now we have to sell our relationship to the town. Meaning, we’re holding hands, he’s pinching my cheeks . . . upper and lower. We’re even forced to share the one-bedroom guest house on the farm where his monstrous body is taking up a large percentage of the bed.

But we’re so persuasive about our farse, that now I’m starting to think he actually might like me. Especially when he grabs me by the wrist and teases the shell of my ear as he whispers, “Mine.”

My Review

I was so excited to go back to this world that the author introduced us to in The Way I Hate Him. The small town of Almond Bay has so many characters that I couldn’t wait to get back to. While this one didn’t start out with some of the craziness that has me rolling with laughter on the first page, it didn’t take long before I was laughing out loud as I read! I think that Wyatt Preston is going to be my favorite book boyfriend of the year.

I love the grumpy/sunshine trope, and love it even more when it is reversed so that the man is the sunshine, which we had in this case. Wyatt’s cheerfulness as he was constantly badgering/flirting/breaking down Aubree’s walls was so perfect. His crazy outbursts and opinions and the way he could take any conversation into the gutter in such an extraordinarily unexpected way was what kept me laughing all through the book. Some of my favorites are when he called her his “special love dumpling”. Or the way he would react to her giving him the sarcastic replies like:

Or when he would say he needed her to compliment him, or talk about certain parts of his anatomy, and he would try to embarrass her by telling people who happened in on their conversations that she was talking about that. When he was telling her how dignified he was.

I want my own Wyatt so bad!

Aubree’s reticence at letting him inside her walls was so understandable. It made sense for her to keep him at arm’s length as long as she did. But I did get a little frustrated that as she opened up to him about her ex and her ex-best friend that he didn’t go ahead at that point and tell her about his own ex issues. Of course that led to some of the final drama, going a little different than maybe I’d expected. And I do feel that sometimes these books are a little long at times, but as I was reading Wyatt’s hilarious banter with Aubree, it kept me going.

I loved all the characters from the author’s other books that made appearances, even ones I didn’t expect! The way that Quinn connects all her worlds is just so unique and wonderful and exactly one of the reasons I love her books so much. Almond Bay’s townsfolk were as much fun as remembered from book one. And I look forward to another book set in this town, I assume it will be the other brother, Ryland, hopefully getting his own HEA.

      Quinn’s books always make me laugh usually. There are one or two that just made me cry a lot too though.

  1. I also love the grumpy-sunshine trope! I like how this book has the reverse with the guy being the sunshine, I mostly read it with the female being the sunshine and a gay one where one of the guys was the sunshine. Too bad about that drama toward the end, I am not a fan of that, especially when it could be easily avoided. It sounds like a really good read!

      The drama wasn’t as bad as some books do, it wasn’t enough that I really didn’t like it. I was okay with how it all went, still loved the book!
