One night filled with alcohol and passion leaves Molly knocking at Webb’s door to tell him she’s pregnant. A quick Vegas weekend later and they’re married. Molly has been in love with Webb since she was eleven and hopes that he’ll come to love her as well. But if he’s always holding himself back, will their marriage even have a chance to get off the ground?
Molly has know Webb her entire life (he’s 10 years older than she is), their families have been business partners going way back. And she’s been in love with him just as long. But there’s a huge, sad history standing between the two of them. Webb knows that he can never make up for all the things that happened in the past, but he just can’t hand his heart over to Molly either.
This one started off with a strong pull on my heartstrings. I love a marriage of convenience story and this one was one of the best that I’ve read. Webb is determined not to risk his heart and Molly is just as determined to win it for herself. The mystery of their past slowly unfolds through flashbacks and was perfectly combined with their present day romance to create a page turner that made me seriously book cranky. An “interrupt me at your own risk” book.
A marriage of convenience, love that’s been hidden for years, a mystery about their pasts, and just enough suspense to keep your heart pounding. This one is going on my year’s best list!
