I was rich, single, and connected, which meant a steady diet of beautiful women wherever I went.
I really did think I had the perfect life.
Until I went and married a supermodel I’d just met, and everything changed.
Of course there were choices. But the word annulment meant giving her up, and I never give up anything. Still, I was a bachelor at heart, and having a wife, well, I didn’t really know what to do with that.
After only forty-eight hours of marriage, I had already gone and screwed everything up.
Now I have thirty days to prove to my new wife that I’m husband material. There’s only one problem—I don’t even know what husband material means. However, I’m certain that won’t stop me from excelling at it.
My wife tells me it isn’t going to be easy. That I have numerous issues to overcome.
First, there’s my jealousy. It needs to be tamed. Did I flip over the fact that her latest picture was causing men around the world to do dirty things all over the covers she graced? Hell, yes. I couldn’t help myself though. When her photo went viral, my caveman instincts kicked in, and I demanded she quit her job and stay home—barefoot and pregnant in my kitchen. I can work on that, right?
Then there’s my mother. I need to convince her that my new wife is not the money hungry floozy she called her. Did my mother actually call her that? Yes. I can’t help it that my mother wants me to get rid of my new wife. The problem is what my mother wants, she always gets one way or another. Still, turning my mother’s opinion around can’t be that hard, can it?
There are many other issues, but according to my new wife, those are minor compared to the biggest one—she says I will never be able to accept being tied down.
Don’t worry—I got this one. I intend to prove to her in no uncertain terms that being tied up, down, or horizontal is just what this Upper East Sider needs.
I was making a hell of a lot of assumptions.
The most important that the dude she was with wasn’t her boyfriend. Poaching another guy’s girl wasn’t something I was into.
That didn’t mean I wouldn’t.
Not that it mattered, she was nowhere in sight.
Just as I was about to give up on ever seeing her again, I spotted her.
I’d been looking for her since she walked through the club door, and that was hours ago.
None of that mattered now though because she was looking right back at me, and this time I wasn’t letting her out of my sight.
Adrenaline raced through my veins. I had to meet her. Know her. And yes, fuck her.
She was close.

Produce an heir… Wait, what?
I have ninety days to knock up my brand-new fake wife. There’s only one problem—she hates my guts.
And in the fine print of the contract? The requirement that we produce an heir.
She can’t stand to be in the same room with me. Says she’ll never be in my bed.
But I’ve never backed down from a challenge and I’m not about to start now.
Mark my words—I’ll have her begging for me, and it won’t take ninety days.
On the heels of her smash hit and New York Times bestselling Screwed series, Kendall Ryan brings you Hitched, a romantic comedy that delivers heart and heat.
This book was really not my cup of tea. Although the action was okay and the whole Sully and Liam subplot was interesting (more so than D and Sofia's romance, in my opinion), I found my self skimming a lot.
I enjoyed this story so much. Max and Addison got along so well, and I love that it's their love for Dylan that helps bring them together. Their shared interest to each other is perfectly mirrored in each other's POV, as is their attempts to derail their attraction was super awesome to read.
I spent most of yesterday (4/15) reading Facebook comments on this article that was shared at least 4 times by different people in my Newsfeed. It attacks 13 Reasons Why for being a revenge fantasy and argues that "other people aren't responsible for your mental health." Those two points alone are very true. And the morality of what Hannah Baker does in creating those tapes is very suspect. It's straight up vindictive, and cruel.
BUT the article ignores the main point of the story (both book and Netflix show). It says that the show should have focused more on Hannah's (lack of) mental health and depression. But the story is told from Clay's point of view as he is listening to her tapes which only lets him see what she was thinking about the events and people she describes on the tapes. The point of the story is the fallout of bullying, slut-shaming, and the fallout of Hannah's suicide.
I liked this story a lot. Bailey and Sean are very strong-headed and have a lot of chemistry together. Their interactions with each other, and the supposed love-triangle involving Sean's twin brother was super entertaining to read.
As you may recall, I did not really enjoy the first book in the For Her series, Everything For Her, because the stalker level was through the roof (it made Christian Grey's antics look tame). And the only reason I even pre-ordered His Alone was because of the very enticing preview at the end of book 1.
Thankfully, this story was much better. Although the obsessiveness and stalker behavior was still present, it was much less intrusive to the story. It was more in the background rather than the glaring driving force for everything. Paige even remarks on multiple accounts about how similar Ryan (nicknamed "Captain America" by Mallory in Everything For Her) is to her half-brother Miles ("Oz"):
I'm a self-published author— because being a college student wasn't hard enough! I write YA multi-genre fiction for young adults or the young at heart. I love This Is Us, NCIS, BBC's Sherlock,
