REVIEW - Married By Contract by Noelle Adams

The Book
Release Date: 20 July 2016
Goodreads Link

Three years into a five-year marriage of convenience, Jenn finds herself wanting something she never thought she'd want from her laid-back, ex-military husband. Sex--as a much-needed release of tension from her high-stress job. But weekly sex with Nick, despite their careful parameters, is likely to get messy eventually. 

Ever since her father walked out on her as a child, Jenn knows never to assume the people she loves will stick around, so she's not about to trust Nick with her heart. She vows to stay strong, no matter how much intimacy develops between them in bed. 

But what starts as a tension-reliever soon becomes so much more, until it threatens both their practical arrangement and the heart Jenn has worked so hard to keep safe.

My Opinion  5 STARS
**My thanks to the author for providing me with a free copy for an honest review**

This is a short and sweet novella that starts three years into an arranged marriage by two people who grew up in the same town, but got married for different reasons.

Nick needed funds to start his PI business and Jenn wanted a marriage without the emotional mess.

However with Jenn continually getting headaches as she works too hard, Nick offers to give her a massage, but only if she comes back before 6pm each night.  But massages soon turn into something more.

Contacts change, and so does the dynamic of their relationship very quickly, where they find they need each other more than they thought.

There is no major conflict, however it is more a slow realisation that this is what they want and they want each other in the full terms of man and wife.

Its a cute, but quick read.
