Marry a man I barely know to save my family from ruin.
It might’ve been simple, if my betrothed were anybody else.
On our wedding day, my husband-to-be arrived at the courthouse like a black cloud rolling over Manhattan. Walt didn’t crack smiles or pepper in pleasantries as we exchanged hollow vows in front of the judge.
His disdain for me was so palpable I assumed we’d walk out of that ceremony and resume our regularly scheduled programming. But then fate was like, Hold my beer. I got this.
In desperate need of help and with nowhere else to turn, I had no choice but to ignore a crucial rule in our contract: I shall only contact Mr. Jennings II in case of emergency. But hey, what’s a little fine print between husband and wife?
Turns out, Walt’s a stickler for legalese—I think it might be his love language. Oh, and his attitude at the courthouse wasn’t a put-on. My so-called husband is a jerk. He takes what he wants without giving any consideration to other people—specifically ME, his blushing, contractually-obligated bride!
I knew life with Walt would be no honeymoon, but a marriage of any sort should still come with a few standard guarantees:
To have and to hold.
For richer or poorer.
In sickness and in health.
But after experiencing Walt’s version of wedded bliss, I say let’s forget about all that lovey-dovey crap and just take me straight to death do us part.

✨ I received an advanced copy of this book in exchange for an honest review ✨
I’ve not really read much marriage of convenience books, but I was excited to get started with this – especially as Rachel is one of my one-click authors, so I already had high hopes and she didn’t disappoint.
I connected to Elizabeth right away, her drive and dedication to succeed with her art were very evident and you see it was such a passion of hers. It took me a bit longer to warm up to Walt though – to begin with, I thought he was a bit pretentious but he grew on me slowly.
I thought the pacing of their relationship was pretty good, although. to begin with, I didn’t like there was much chemistry at least not from Walt he seemed a bit cold and cut off, and it was more through his actions that you could see his feelings rather than what he was saying if that makes sense.
In a nutshell…
Overall this was another entertaining read from R.S. Grey and I definitely recommend it.
My Rating: 4/5 🌟🌟🌟🌟
