It was a modern take on an arranged marriage that was supposed to lead to my happily ever after. The rules were simple:
1. Marry a complete stranger chosen for you by professionals.
2. Live together as man and wife for eight weeks while cameras record your every move.
3. Make a decision to stay together or get a divorce.
Call me crazy, but I had complete faith in the process, until I saw who was waiting for me at the end of the aisle.
Austin James has never met me, but that doesn’t mean I don’t know him. With no other choice, I say my vows and pray I can make it through the next eight weeks. Then I’ll leave. What connects us is my best kept secret, and I’ll protect it at all costs even if that means walking away from the only person I’ve ever cared about.
REVIEW by Jeanine:
WOW, WOW, WOW!!!! You all have to read this book! I started reading this yesterday morning and I literally could not put it down! It's so well written! I laughed, I cried, I was angry, happy. I felt so many emotions while reading this book. I fell in love with Austin and Jillian.
It starts out with Jillian getting on a Reality TV show. Basically a team of Doctors find matches for four couples based on sessions they have over however many weeks. Jillian has many secrets but she keeps them from the doctors and buries her past like it never happened. After the sessions they are paired up and have to marry the other person. Never met each other, know nothing about each other etc. once Jillian signs the contract with the producer, their is no turning back. When she walks up the aisle and sees her groom for the first time, she turns white as a ghost and every single thing from her past haunts her. But she signed a contract.... So therefore she goes through with it.. for 8 weeks they are taped, literally their whole lives on camera. After 8 weeks is up, they decide whether they stay together or get divorced. I won't reveal anymore, but Oh My God!!!!
The twist and turns this story takes had me on edge the entire time. Jillian has major secrets she is hiding from Austin. She knows when he finds out, there's no way in hell he is staying with her. Unfortunately for her she fell hard. She fell in love.
Five plus starts from me! I highly recommend!!!!!!!
