As many of you know by now, Jessica Clare is one of my favourite writer and I have been lucky to receive an ARC from Jessica Clare in exchange for a honest review and I must tell you, I totally adored this book. I just fell in love with Sebastian and Chelsea and their story!
Billionaire Sebastian Cabral became a billionaire, not through hard work but because his father is a billionaire and he is the heir. So that makes him a little bit different from the other billionaires. But just like the other billionaires in Jessica Clare her books, he isn’t a snob about it. But being a billionaire doesn’t mean that his life is going over roses. NO! Sebastian has one big problem and that problem is his family reality TV show ‘The Cabral Empire’. It’s bad enough that a huge part of his family love doing crazy things on TV but why do they always want to involve him into their TV show too? He doesn’t want to come on TV or share his private life with the whole world. And now, for the new season, they want him to rekindle his relationship with his ex-girlfriend!?! That is the last thing that Sebastian wants to do! But knowing his mother and the TV producers, he will be hunt down, so Sebastian realizes that he has to take drastic measures to avoid this. But what can he do?!?
Sebastian is still thinking about that when he meets Chelsea Hall on Gretchen and Hunter’s dinner party. She is one of Gretchen’s bridesmaids. From the beginning there’s a bond between them and that gives Sebastian a crazy idea.
An idea that will save all their problems. Because unknown to Sebastian, Chelsea has a problem too. Chelsea Hall is a soap maker but her real passion in life is derby skating. And she’s a tough derby skater, she isn’t afraid to give her all! The bruises on her body are proof of it. But all that toughness disappears at night. At night, Chelsea changes into a woman who’s afraid of being alone and who hates the dark.
Until now she could always count on her roommate Pisa to help her and support her through the night but Pisa has gotten a big job offer. And although Chelsea is very happy for Pisa, this is bad news for Chelsea because Pisa has to move to another town, leaving Chelsea alone with her fears during the nights.
But then Sebastian, who is one of Hunter’s groomsmen comes with a crazy offer, he wants them to marry, just for pretends. Just long enough to get his crazy family and their TV reality show of his back. And unknown to Sebastian, this can just be the perfect solution for Chelsea her problems too!
But what both of them didn’t expect was that this marriage would become more than just a solution to their problems. That it would turn into a real marriage. A marriage where there are feelings involved, partnership and sex! And just when they both start believing that this can be a real marriage, Chelsea’s past and Sebastian family come knocking at their door. And then comes the question is this marriage real or not?
Like I said in the beginning, I really loved this story, it’s my absolute favorite book from Jessica Clare. Although Sebastian isn’t a ‘real’ alpha man, he is strong. He’s also funny, caring, tender and just the man that Chelsea needs to help her with her fears. And Chelsea is just the kind of woman that Sebastian needs, in her own way strong enough to put up with his crazy mother and their TV reality show and to support him with his real passion in life.
I’m looking forward to the next book in this wonderful series!
Until the next time!
