From Goodreads. He needs a wife for three weeks…
Owen Phipps is out for revenge. His mission? To expose the man who stole his sister’s money and dignity. All he needs is a “wife” who can play along. Too bad his last best hope is an actress who tries to mace him with perfume when he offers her the role of a lifetime.
Lindy Knight is a real sap. She loves too hard, feels too deep, and often finds herself saying yes when she should be saying “Let me think about it.” She can’t believe her good fortune when Owen offers her more than enough money to hold off foreclosure until she can find a job. Three weeks at a resort, money she desperately needs, and she gets to help bring a criminal to justice? Score.
It seems easy enough until the first time a couples bonding game turns intimate, and they realize how dangerous their mutual attraction could be. Can they keep their hands to themselves long enough to find the evidence Owen needs? Or are the close quarters more temptation than they can handle?
Review by Kate
WIFE FOR HIRE, by Christine Bell, is a fun contemporary romance that I enjoyed from the start. Even though a bad situation brought these two together, they definitely made the most of it!
I enjoyed the characters that Bell created. Lindy is an extremely kind and quirky woman who can't say no to a lost cause (and $20,000 didn't hurt either), and Owen is a hot accented alpha male who will stop at nothing to hurt the man who wronged his sister. This book jumped into the action right from the start and I loved how these two characters fell for each other in the process.
At times novel was a bit wordy but Bell definitely has her own voice to share with the reading community. She has a gift of creating likeable and sexy characters that keep fingertips glued to the book. I will definitely be checking out more titles from her in the future. For anyone looking for a romantic read from this amazing Entangled line, Wife for Hire is the next book for you.
