Summary

Would you rather play it safe in the friend zone, or risk it all with a modern marriage of convenience?

Noah and Mia have always been best friends, and their friendship is the most important thing to them. Life is going great for Noah and he’s up for a promotion in a job he loves. But Mia’s life is on hold as she awaits a kidney transplant. She’s stuck in a dead-end job and, never wanting to be a burden, has sworn off all romance. So when the chance of a lifetime comes to go back to school and pursue her dream, it’s especially painful to pass up. She can’t quit her job or she’ll lose the medical insurance she so desperately needs.

To support her, Noah suggests they get married—in name only—so she can study full-time and still keep the insurance. It’s a risk to both of them, with jobs, health, and hearts on the line, and they’ll need to convince suspicious coworkers and nosy roommates that they’re the real deal. But if they can let go of all the baggage holding them back, they might realize that they would rather be together forever.

Childhood friends to husband and wife

Loved it! Wish I could give 100 stars!
This book was well-written, and Mia and Noah were well-developed, interesting characters. I love Mia baking and trying to make gluten free, or special diet treats. I think I'd like her if we ever met. I loved Noah, too. He was a true hero with flaws and baggage, but true love for Mia. I loved the little things they did together like getting chicken wings. That reminded me of me and my husband. We were married 21 years, and went out for five years. He passed away in 2001 at only 47. It's the little things I miss most of all.
David was great as the slimy villain, and I loved Mia and Noah's friends.I
Please write more books!

One of the best voice actors!!!

While I’m not an avid audio book listener, I’ve listened to quite a few. This voice actor is EXCELLENT!! Great emotion and energy where it was needed. And her lowered male voice was the most realistic I’ve heard from a female voice.

This story is excellent as well! Beautiful story of best friends to lovers with good side storylines adding so much character depth.

Fun, flirty, and a good listen

Did a good job with the emotions around having a family member or someone you care about dying or struggling with a disease. Not a sad book but touched on life struggles.

Favorite Reads of 2022

This books managed to straddle the line of romance while still feeling like it was rooted in reality and "love" as an action of self sacrifice and not just a feeling. Though it felt like it took the female lead a little too long to have her epiphany, she still eventually got there. The characters in this story arc of childhood friends to husband and wife are supremely likable. I can't wait to read and see more from this author.

Beautifully written! ❤️

Let me start by saying this book has all the feels and I love it every bit of it!

I have read(heard) all the Marriage of convenience books out there. I think it’s a difficult trope, it tends to be too unrealistic, yet the author glides through it smoothly.

Without giving any spoilers, this is the best romance book I have read(heard) this year. It’s written with a lot of heart, well worth the credit, everyone should get it.

The narration was good, but I didn’t imagine that voice when I was switching from the audio to the book.

All in all I give the story 5 stars, and the performance 4 stars. Don’t get me wrong Courtney Patterson’s voice is great, but much more fitting for historical or western romance, just my opinion.

Excited for the next story!
Well done Allison Ashley 👏🏻 I’m a fan now!
