“Go home, Jack,” I said quietly. “You have no reason to be here.”
“I don’t have a home to go back to anymore, Rose.”
“You’re my home,” he finished.
Oh the feels in this book!
This book has the Marriage of convenience tropes but with a twist. And wow I loved it! It's got slow burn which is so worth it. So worth it.
Its simply so beautiful to watch how these two slowly fell in love with each other. Not like the usual NA books where they have sex within the first 3 chapters and then fall in love. No this book...it felt so realistic. Two strangers living together, getting to know each other and slowly falling in love. It was perfect really.
I loved how despite being the arrogant, cold hearted hero...he wasn't at the same time.
I simply couldn't put it down once I started it. Definitely recommend it to anyone who loves slow burn, hates Insta love, is into the marriage of convenience tropes and loves the 'melting a cold man's heart' .
About the book:
Jack and I, we did everything backward. The day he lured me into his office-which was also the first day we met-he proposed. You'd think a guy who looked like him-a bit cold maybe, but still striking and very unattainable-would only ask the love of his life to marry him, right? You'd think he must be madly in love.
Nope. It was me he asked. A complete stranger who had never even heard of him. A stranger who had been dumped by her fiancé only weeks before. You'd think I'd laugh in his face, call him insane-and a few other names-then walk away as quickly as possible. Well…I did all those things except the walking away part.
It took him only minutes to talk me into a business deal…erm, I mean marriage, and only days for us to officially tie the knot. Happiest day of my life. Magical. Pop the champagne… Not. It was the worst day. Jack Hawthorne was nothing like what I'd imagined for myself.
I blamed him for my lapse in judgment. I blamed his eyes, the ocean blue eyes that looked straight into mine unapologetically, and that frown on his face I had no idea I would become so fascinated with in time.
It wasn't long after he said I was the biggest mistake of his life that things started to change. No, he still didn't talk much, but anyone can string a few words together. His actions spoke the loudest to me. And day after day my heart started to get a mind of its own.
One second he was no one. The next he became everything.
One second he was unattainable. The next he seemed to be completely mine.
One second I thought we were in love. The next it was still nothing but a lie.
After all, I was Rose and he was Jack. We were doomed from the very beginning with those names. Did you expect anything else?
