About Jennifer Griffith

Jennifer is a wife and a mom of five weathering the chaos by writing escapist fiction. Jennifer has no plans to write the Great American Novel. She’d rather compose what someone would read on a rainy afternoon with a cup of cocoa, or sitting on a beach chair while the waves crash. Light, frothy, gone.

    How do I even express how much fun I had reading this novel? I can’t even write I’m just so… I can’t. This will be on my “Read for freaking ever and always” list. I could read this book once a month and not tire of it. The story is so intricate and perfect. This was beyond wonderful.

    I enjoyed the fact that they were thrown together at every turn. You don’t want to get married? Too late! You want to get the marriage annulled after you get your money? HAHA you have to stay together for the whole year or forfeit all your money. You don’t want to live together? Well too late, because you won a scholarship house and can’t be paying rent in an apartment complex if you’re living in the house. You need to stop kissing your wife so you can remember your girlfriend who is in Germany? Why don’t we stick cameras in front of you and make the world watch you make out with her? That seems like the perfect plan.

    But literally this plot was magic. It’s not every day that you read about people committing fraud to go to school. And its not everyday you read about those committing the fraud falling in love with each other. I was totally drawn to this book and when I had to go to work all I thought about was what might happen next. It kept me on the edge of my seat and gave me some serious anxiety. Like it was bad! Such a good book!

    The author offered me a copy of the audio book and I really liked it. At first I thought maybe it should have been read by a female because the beginning was told from her point of view but I found the narrator to be really good. He read with much feeling. Well done.

    I have a love/hate relationship with marriage of convenience books. I love them but get so frustrated when the spouses won’t articulate their love and get to the happily ever after part that I hate them. ha ha. It was a little disturbing that this particular marriage was done to perpetuate a fraud but I’m choosing to overlook that fact. I did like both the characters but got a bit frustrated by Josh’s indecisiveness. One minute he acted like he was ready to commit to the marriage and the next he was meanly avoiding Morgan. Make up your mind already and then voice your decision! But if that had happened the book would have been a lot shorter. Actually it could have been a little shorter anyway. The back and forth stuff started to drag and I found myself just wanting the book to move forward to the next part of the story. It got there eventually but a little less angsty stuff could have made the book flow better. Still it was enjoyable.

    Not sure how realistic the story actually is but I gotta tell ya that there have been times when I’ve wished for a Daddy-Warbucks-type to help me out in a pinch. Wouldn’t it be nice…

    The story is clean but there is a good deal of marital innuendo, making out and desiring thought processes. Lots of talk about physic and good looks which for me got old. We know you are attracted already. At least none of it was too graphic. It was more that the author was telling the reader that it was a knock your socks off kiss rather than a play by play of the kiss itself. I’m glad for that because play by play would have slowed the pace more and I’d have been bored by it.

    The author says she likes to write cotton candy books. And this is one. It was light, fluffy and sweet. I could envision it as a plot for a Hallmark movie actually.

    I kinda liked that the mean dude/mean girl characters didn’t turn out to be as they first appeared. Pretty decent people in the end.

    Sex: marital innuendo, kissing
    Language: no
    Violence: no
