Do you ever have trouble reading a book because you love it so much you have to keep putting it down so it doesn’t end? Yeah, that.
Amelia Hall has never been kissed. She rarely goes out, and keeps close to only her fellow Red Lipstick Coalition babes. When she meets sexy bad boy of the publishing world Thomas Bane, he challenges her in ways she couldn’t turn down: marrying him to help clean up his reputation in exchange for an opportunity for the job of her dreams.
Amelia is a compelling character, not one I can necessarily relate to on a personal level, but one I can certainly understand what drives her choices. Tommy, however, is the perfect book boyfriend. He’s a hot, broody bad boy with a heart of gold. He lays all his cards out at the beginning, which I appreciate. I don’t always need a ton of angst and guessing about intention. I enjoyed the slow burn relationship, the pacing felt real. I really liked the way the characters brought out the best in each other, especially Amelia’s change into a more confident adult. The sparks between them were evident at the start, but Tommy’s patience and understanding were really the hot part to me.
I highly highly recommend this one, or any other book by Staci for that matter. It’s just a perfect example of what a contemporary romance novel should be: full of heart, heat, and humor. 5/5 stars
I never thought my first kiss would be on my wedding day.
But here I stand, clutching a bouquet of pale pink roses behind the doors of a Las Vegas chapel, and at the end of the aisle is the absolute last man I imagined would be waiting for me.
Bestselling author. Notorious bad boy. Savagely handsome, dark as sin, chiseled as stone. And somehow, my soon-to-be husband.
Marry him, and I’ll land my dream job. Save him, and I’ll walk away with everything I’ve ever wanted. All I have to do is remember it’s all for show. None of it is real, no matter how real it feels.
But first, I have to survive the kiss.
And with lips like his, my heart doesn’t stand a chance.
