Summary

One moment I'm the forgotten daughter of one of the most wealthy families in the country, and the next I'm the blushing bride in an arranged marriage. My fate is sealed in my wedded union with a complete stranger.

In public, Perry Constantine is the life of the party. Easygoing. Adored. In private, he's brooding. Dark. Angry. But so am I. It's a contest of wills to see who will break in the bedroom first, and while I try to remain strong, I find myself craving the very man I swore to hate.

My husband.

Contains mature themes.

Narrators are hard to get past

The story was good. I almost did not listen because the female narrator was awful. Once I adjusted the speed it became tolerable. Glad I listened though because the story is good.

overuse of vulgarity detracts from story

overall, the story could have been written better, the characters could have been better developed . Instead, the author chose to regale the reader with repetitive vulgarity that was unnecessary to the plot. not only was the vulgarity repeated, ad nauseum, but the characters' thoughts and dialogue never really progressed, merely repeated.

the narration could have been better cast. many times I thought a female computerized voice was being used. the male narrator frankly sounded effeminate, in stark contrast to the character he was portraying.

Despite all the negatives, I did find myself invested in the story and finished the book. the question is if I am invested enough to buy books 2 and 3. kinda hate to throw good money after bad.

Good book but…

This isn’t a series, it’s a continuation… it stops mid story so you have to purchase the next book to see what happens. It’s like someone stops talking in the middle of the sentence and walks away.
