Review

I received a copy of this book from Reading In Sarah’s Corner in exchange for an honest review.

I don’t know how many books I’ve read that had the main characters getting married for convenience and then eventually end up falling in love with each other. I love these types of books. I enjoy the phase where they main characters pretend to be in love with each other just so they can get married without a hitch and get on with their hidden agenda. And then amidts all the pretense, they realize they are actually already feeling the real thing.

Marry Me For Money isn’t just about two people marrying each other to achieve an ulterior motive. The book starts with the way the main characters meet each other and end up being the best of friends. It also showed how they both went on their love lives. The hero slept with many other women in the book. The heroine started a relationship with someone from her office.

While I appreciate the fact that there were many things that happened in the story, there were also other things that I didn’t like. For example, the heroine. At first, I liked her. She was feisty and put the hero in his place when he was being a jerk. Then, when she kept seeing the office mate even when she knew it wasn’t going to go anywhere because she already promised to marry the hero, that’s when I started disliking her.

I felt sorry for the office mate. He sounded like a really great guy. Unfortunately, the heroine started to get on my nerves. She got mad when she was called selfish. Hello! She definitely was. I mean, come on!!! Anybody who’s ever read the book would know just how impossible her illusions were. Like duh!!!

I really wanted to like this book more. But I just couldn’t. The only part I liked when watching the hero and the heroine fall in love. Other than that, I spent the rest of the time wanting to slap either the hero or the heroine repeatedly for being stupid and selfish. I mean, both of them weren’t actually the best characters even written.
