After years of dreaming, Jessica is finally getting married, but the marriage isn't exactly what she thought.
Daniel is her best friend, and she's known him all her life, but he's never gotten over losing his wife two years ago. His dream is to become the pastor of the church in their hometown, but the small-town congregation keeps balking over calling an unmarried minister. Since Daniel needs a wife and Jessica wants a husband and family, she proposes an arrangement that benefits both of them.
They can get married. They can build a life together. They can celebrate Christmas as a couple. It's fine that he doesn't love her. And it's fine that she's not exactly suited to be a small-town pastor's wife. And it's fine that she's more attracted to her sexy, brooding husband every day.
Jessica can be practical about this marriage. She knows what she's getting into, after all...
This book includes fully-developed sex scenes between a husband and wife.
My Opinion 3.5 STARS
**ARC Provided by Netgalley and Noelle Adams for an honest review**
I really did enjoy this book and the fact that the male lead was a Pastor did not get in the way of the story.
The church bit was put across softly but the relationship and dynamics of the two was put across really well. My only criticism would be that I would have loved to have read Daniel's POV too, as it felt quite one dimensional.
Jessica is a really strong character and you could really feel her emotions and I was really rooting for the marriage to work out well. Daniel was strong in his beliefs and in his loyalty, and he came across as a really caring character.
I read this book really quickly and loved their happy ending.
