This sexy billionaire needs a bride, and he’s not above buying one!
Real estate mogul Sullivan Bradford’s family is pushing hard for him to get married. When his mom sets up an appointment for him with a matchmaker, he seizes the opportunity. A business arrangement with a suitable candidate is just the thing to get his parents off his back.
The last thing Kinsley Taylor was looking for was a husband, but she can’t afford to turn down the deal Sullivan is offering. Not when becoming his bride will give her the money she needs to save her brother.
Love and babies weren’t part of the agreement…but some contracts were meant to be broken.
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
Could this book be any more perfect?? Bought For Marriage was everything I was hoping it would be and it left me completely satisfied with its sweet sexiness.
I know some people don’t enjoy the whole “pretend-relationship” trope but I just love it, and this one was flawlessly done.
Sullivan is just not in a place where he can commit time and headspace to a romantic relationship. But when his parents meddling gets to be too much, he agrees to see a matchmaker… only his mother never expected him to go ahead and find a bride.
Kinsley’s only concern is her brother’s health and their lack of means to do something about it. When she gets the offer to marry Sullivan, while it’s not really her ideal to enter a type of business agreement instead of a real relationship, the possibility of taking care of her brother tips her to agree. The fact that Sullivan was one sexy hunk and they had crazy hot chemistry was a really good plus.
Their attraction and connection are stronger than either of them thought possible, and soon their arrangement is being broken in many ways. I completely loved both, Kinsley and Sullivan. She was unassuming, funny, witty and caring. Sullivan was the perfect blend of bossy, alpha sweet and I couldn’t help but fall in love with him. I especially enjoyed watching the way he dealt with the feelings Kinsley stirred up in him.
“Sex in the back of a limo isn’t my style. But here I am, yet again, so desperate to have you that I can’t wait until we get home.”
As I said, Bought For Marriage worked for me in every way and I loved the experience from beginning to end. I can’t wait to get Miles’ story next!
Rating: 4+ “HEA all the way” Stars
I’m not usually one to go for a contract marriage type of plot, but I knew Fiona Davenport usually gives me a quick, hot, sexy read with enough plot to keep me satisfied so I went for it, and I’m glad I did. It was everything I expected.
Sullivan is a workaholic with a meddling mother he can’t say no to so when she sets him up an appointment with a matchmaker he agrees. He then embarks on finagling the business deal to end all business deals, a marriage. He wants all the perks of marriage with none of the headaches. Despite his less than alpha name, Sullivan is bossy, driven, sexy as hell and it was all sorts of cute when he fell for his new wife despite his best efforts.
Kinsley would never have agreed to a business deal marriage except she’s in a tight spot and desperately needs money to help her brother. She was selfless, sweet, and actually had some brains which I adored about her.
This wasn’t an insta-love romance which suited me just fine. Bought for Marriage was the perfect deal-gone-wrong book, since it went wrong in all the right ways. Quick, fun, and sexy as all get out, I had fun with this one.
