The concept was scary but exciting... 

Marry a total stranger.

Live together for six months.

Journal everything. (Feelings. Fights. All of it.)

After six months, we each get $50K in trade for our journals, whether we stay married or not. But the goal is to commit to the experience and see if the relationship experts could put together the perfect matches.

I have never been lucky in love. This was my chance to find my soulmate.

I couldn’t wait to meet the man the experts felt was perfect for me.

My hopes were immediately dashed when I saw him at the altar.

Shit. I married my worst nightmare.


** can be read as a stand-alone! **

4 Stars

A social experiment that can either work out perfectly or end up ruining lives.  It's a leap of faith.  A leap Asia is willing to take to find love.  She gets more than she bargains for and isn't sure they matched her with the right man.  Talon is a rock god, filthy rich, and HOT.  Asia wants stability, what can Talon offer her?

Don't judge the book by the cover!  Get to know each other.  It's all part of the social experiment.

I'll admit I had a  hard time getting into this one.  I was fighting it as much as Talon & Asia were.  Pixie seemed to be the only one willing to accept everything for what it is.

Once I got into the story and the characters did too, I LOVED it.  I get Asia, I get her insecurities, her worries, her need for love.  Makes perfect sense to me.  Why give your heart, when the other person is going to smash it and walk away without any repercussions.   Asia and Talon work together to make things right, until they don't.

The last 75% of this book, I cried.  I mean UGLY cried.  I felt terrible.  I felt like Carian Cole took my heart and drop kicked it from the Empire State Building, then ran it over with a taxi, stomped on it, but then came back to me with a pretty box and apologized. I was all over the place with my emotions.

A very good read, that you'll be unable to put down!
