This slow burn office romance came with lots of heartfelt emotion. Graham Locke was your classic work obsessed CEO that lived for his job. However, after telling a white lie about his dating life to his boss, he finds himself in a fake relationship and married to his assistant Trina. I loved the dynamic that Graham and Trina shared, as their their boss-employee relationship moved to husband-wife and their feelings for one another started to not feel so fake anymore. They come from two totally different worlds and yet, at the end of the day, the heart wants what the heart wants. Side note, the cover model and front cover design was absolutely stunning. A great read. I was fortunate enough to receive an ARC and this is my honest review.
Trina Shaw came from a very large loving family, she is currently working for Abdons a company that design and make expensive watches . Her boss is Graham Locke Trina has found him to be a little tyrannical and aloof , now he’s asked her to meet him at the local court house as he’s getting married . Thinking that he needs her as a witness she picks up a bottle of bubbly to give as a gift , Trina is absolutely gobsmacked when she realises that she’s to be the bride . After negotiating a deal the wedding proceeds, her new husband explains why he needs a wife, it’s all to do with Lloyd Abdon the founder and owner of the company. It would seem that Graham has told Lloyd that he and Trina have had a whirlwind romance and has recently got married , now Lloyd is coming back to NYC as he’s ill and may not have long to live . Of course at first there’s very little contact between Graham and Trina which is essentially a marriage of convenience ,but as they are forced to spend more and more time together to keep up the ruse , their true feelings bubble to the surface . I would regard this as a slow burn romance where as Trina had a loving family Graham’s past was quite harrowing that was before he met Lloyd and his wife . Their meeting was not under good circumstances but even so Lloyd and his wife knew they had to help him which they did and their kind actions put him on the path he’s on now. Of course Grahammand Trina’s sham marriage is exposed and after a lot of soul searching It all leads to a perfect ending ….❤️❤️Looking forward to reading book 2
Yet again a really easy flowering, well written book by this great author to loose yourself in. A marriage of convenience. 3 months and a very large amount of money offered to Trina to pretend that Graham Locke is her husband. The reason! He can make a man very happy, that thinks he is about to Die. Mr Abdon, Graham’s mentor has the wrong idea in many ways. One being he is going to die, two Graham and Trina are married, but the truth escapes and a lovely HEA occurs.
Love this author’s books. This story was lovely . Really enjoyed Graham and Trina. She was an amazing woman with so much love to give. Had me crying at times . Can’t wait for the next one which sounds as if it’s going to be a humdinger of a story !
