Goodreads Link

He needs a wife…
Single bodyguard Nick Calhoun has been given an ultimatum by his boss—find a wife or lose his cushy, high-paying job. Clients’ wives are hitting on him and putting Nick, and his boss, in hot water. But monogamy? He’s never been a white picket fence kind of guy, and he’s not about to embrace the happily married lifestyle now. He needs a wife who doesn’t care about his steamy, extra-curricular love life…and he knows just the woman to fit the bill.
She needs a home…
Adalaide Sinclair spent years caring for her ill grandmother. Upon Grammy’s death, she’s stunned to find herself evicted from the only home she’s ever known and labeled a thief by her inheritance-hungry family. Addie needs to find a place to live and a job—fast. So when her childhood friend, Nick, proposes a no-sex marriage of convenience, she puts her dreams of true love and happily-ever-after on hold. Finding Prince Charming can wait a little longer, right?
But will their friendship survive the honeymoon?
When Nick and Addie unexpectedly win a dream honeymoon, they decide to go their separate ways during the ten-day vacation. Too bad a camera crew is waiting for them at the tropical paradise. Acting like a head-over-heels bride and groom for reality TV wreaks havoc on their no-sex agreement…and blurs the line between fantasy and reality. Will Nick and Addie remain married in name only, or will a romantic honeymoon for show turn them into true newlyweds?

Holiday Honeymoon Series
Book 1: The Bride Who Wouldn't by Carol Marinelli
Book 2: Second Chance Honeymoon by Ally Blake
Book 3: The Honeymoon Prize 

My Opinion  5 STARS
This is a quick yet lovely friends to lovers story that can be read as a stand alone and has no cliff hangars.

Nick proposed to Addie first when he was just five years old, however they have remained best friends throughout their lives.

After having to quit colleague to help her grandmother (who when raised her her parents dumped her there )after a stroke 9 years ago, she has been made homeless by her greedy mother and aunt who want the expensive house to sell.  I t didn't matter that the house was left to Addie in her grandmothers will.

Nick needs to get married for his job to make him appear safer as a personal bodyguard and less of a hot single man who likes sex.

Emily, the friend that Addie has been living with put them into a competition to win a honeymoon but send them off without all of the details.  It appears that their honeymoon, new clothes and expensive resort come with a price.  A reality TV show they are staring in.

Upon reconnecting properly, but both come to a startling realisation as they have a good time, relax in the sunshine with a very sweet and supportive staff member who looks after Addie very well.

Its a very sweet story with just kissing and not much further, a very clean read for those of you how do not like the erotic or explicit sex scenes in a lot of books nowadays.
