Wife for Hire (For Hire #1) by Christine Bell

The Book
Release Date: 18 August 2012

He needs a wife for three weeks…

Owen Phipps is out for revenge. His mission? To expose the man who stole his sister’s money and dignity. All he needs is a “wife” who can play along. Too bad his last best hope is an actress who tries to mace him with perfume when he offers her the role of a lifetime.

Lindy Knight is a real sap. She loves too hard, feels too deep, and often finds herself saying yes when she should be saying “Let me think about it.” She can’t believe her good fortune when Owen offers her more than enough money to hold off foreclosure until she can find a job. Three weeks at a resort, money she desperately needs, and she gets to help bring a criminal to justice? Score.

It seems easy enough until the first time a couples bonding game turns intimate, and they realize how dangerous their mutual attraction could be. Can they keep their hands to themselves long enough to find the evidence Owen needs? Or are the close quarters more temptation than they can handle?

My Opinion  3 STARS
He needed a wife for three weeks and she needed money.

The first meeting between the two has comedy moments, but the rest of the book is fairly soft.

Owen's Irish language doesn't feature as much as i thought it would, which is a shame and Lindy showed herself to have a soft gooey center.

The end of the book gave decent closure to the task and with the couple, where we got a decent view of Owen's change of heart and feelings.

A decent read.
