I must say that I find television very educational. The minute somebody turns it on, I go to the library and read a book. --Groucho Marx

Molly O’Keefe’
Contemporary Romance
Publisher: Harlequin
Mass Market Paperback: 288 pages
ISBN-13: 978-0373716883
Overall Rating: 3.5/5 


Jake McKibbon and Mia Alatore have been best friends their whole lives and for the past few years they’ve been legally husband and wife but Jake knows it’s only to fix her problem. It was simple they get married Mia stays on the Ranch like she’s always wanted and Jake will take his studies and inventions around the world. They knew this was not a real marriage and that was fine for them until one night changed everything.

Jake’s going away again but first his needs Mia accompany him to a fancy dinner party with the rest of his colleagues. The two of them share a beautiful night together and good sex or what would have been a beautiful night if Mia didn’t ruin it by asking for a divorce. Before everything changed in Jake’s life a divorce would have been fine but now Jake realizes he wants the thing that’s been in front of him the whole time. And now there is no way in hell Jake’s giving up his wife without a fight.

I enjoyed this book. I was expecting some fluffy romance where the only problem with the couple was the husband didn’t realized he was in love with his wife. And while that was a factor in this book it wasn’t the only problem. This book was anything but fluffy, it was really deep in ways that I didn’t think possible for a SuperRomance book, it was really emotional and took you on wild ride of feelings and regret. So much happens in this book and I don’t want to give away anything or too much.

I’ll admit that at first I was like good for Mia, divorce him and move on but once I read more and realized a few things about Jake, I was hoping they could work thing out and finally start their lives together. Jake doesn’t know what to do with love so he doesn’t involve himself emotionally in things because as a child he’s learned that emotions only make things worse and you get hurt. I was glad that Jake stopped and took a look at his life and tried to work on himself and his relationship with Mia. Also as I learned more about Jake and I got madder at Mia because she knew all about the things Jake has been through so I thought she would be a little understanding, and try to help him.

All in all it was a good book and one that shouldn’t be missed. So go out and read it. I know I will be going out and picking another book by Ms. O’Keefe.
