Married Into Love
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Alec went to Vegas to attend a co-ed bachelor and bachelorette party and a wedding, but apparently, fate has a different thing planned for him.
Alessia is having a hard time in her life, she just lost her job and she was just about to lose her home as well. Her sister convinced her to go out with her, just to chill out and forget their problems for the night, what she didn't expect was meeting her white knight in the bar!
And to wake up married to him! Yay!
Nevertheless, he seemed to convince her to give their sham marriage a try, and her sister was telling her the same thing as well. Will she go with the flow and give in?
I like Alec. Indeed, he made sure that he got the girl and he would do anything to make her stay. He was a gentleman, in fairness. He didn't do anything Alessia didn't want to. But he took care of everything, that Alessia wouldn't worry about anything at all. He treated her like a princess.
Alessia has been taking care of everything for everyone, and it is just fair that someone will take care of her as well. She has a very big heart. Her sister on the other hand, I didn't know what to think of her at first when she married Alessia off, but she meant well. Her personality is opposite to the meekness of her sister, and I wish that she'd have her happy ending as well.
It's a fast, easy on the heart, sexy, fairytale-ish, insta-love romantic that you can enjoy in one sitting.
“I still can’t believe how fast all you guys fell for your women. You. Andrew. Jason.” I took a shot of vodka, and poured us both another one. “Not a single one of you were into the whole relationship thing at all, and then bam! You’ve got eyes for only one woman and a possessive streak a mile wide when it comes to her.”
Ryan took the vodka from me and gulped it down, shrugging his shoulders. “When you meet the one, you’ll know. Just don’t make the same mistake that I did with Tamara and let her get away from you.”
“That’s another thing all three of you have in common.” I chuckled and shook my head. “I’m not the kind of guy to fall head over heels for a woman at first sight like you guys did. But if hell froze over”—I paused to glare at Ryan as he burst into a fit of laughter—“and I get all riled up over some chick I barely know, I won’t make the same mistake you all did. No walking away from her, even if I think she belongs to someone else like Andrew did with Josie. No letting her run from me because she thinks I’m a douchebag who hits on a woman all night long, only to get up close and personal with some other chick while she’s in the bathroom, like what happened with Jason and Cee-Cee. And I sure as shit won’t let her sneak out on me the morning after like you did with Tamara. I’ll exhaust the hell out of her so leaving me is the last thing on her mind.”
We reversed roles, and it was Ryan who was glaring at my reminder of how he’d fucked up with Tamara and lost contact with her for months. Then he narrowed his eyes at me, and a smug grin tilted his lips. I shifted in my seat, uncomfortable with how pleased he suddenly looked.
“What?” I asked sharply, and the limo got quiet as Jason’s childhood friends stopped talking and turned to look at Ryan and me.
“Nothing.” His grin turned into a full-fledged, shit-eating grin.
“Bullshit, dude. What the fuck’s up with you? You went from being totally pissed at me to grinning like you know something I don’t. Don’t be a douche. Fill me in on the secret.”
“Karma, man. She’s a bitch,” he chuckled.
“You’re gonna have to do better than that,” I growled.
“That’s the second time I’ve heard you say that hell would have to freeze over for you to fall for a woman. And now you’ve paired it with bragging about how you’d handle it better than we all did.”
“Dude,” one of Jason’s friends drawled. “Talk about tempting fate. You’ve got to have brass balls to put shit like that out in the universe and think it’s not gonna come back to bite you in the ass.”
Hockey players tended to be a superstitious lot, but I hadn’t expected the wealthy, preppy guys Jason grew up with to believe in stuff like karma. Not that I grew up poor—my parents did very well for themselves, but they weren’t in the same league as Jason’s family and their closest friends.
“It is,” Ryan agreed. “And I’m going to enjoy every second of watching you squirm when it happens.”
