Book Club Friday #16


It's finally Friday!!!

Today, as per usual, I'm sharing my latest book review with you guys a la Heather and Katie.


This week, I am reviewing Wife by Wednesday by Catherine Bybee.

I saw this floating around GoodReads, and when I saw that it was only 99 cents on my kindle, I had to snatch it up to read myself.


Book description from GoodReads:

A Contemporary Romance with a dash of humor and a whole lotta sexy…

Blake Harrison:
Rich, titled, and charming… And in need of a wife by Wednesday so he turns to Sam Elliot who isn’t the business man he expected. Instead, Blake is faced with Samantha Elliot, engaging and spunky with a voice men call 900 numbers to hear.

Samantha Elliot:
Owner of Alliance, her matchmaking firm, and not on the marital menu... That is until Blake offers her ten million dollars for a one-year contract. All she needs to do is keep her attraction to her husband to herself and avoid his bed. But Blake’s toe-curling kisses and charm prove too difficult to combat. Now she needs to protect her heart so she can walk away when their mercenary life together is over.

My thoughts:

Super adorable and lovable characters. It was a really light, quick and fun read. Almost too quick. While it was cute, and I really enjoyed it - the story could've been dragged out a bit more. Perfect to fall into the "chick-lit" category. If you enjoy girly love story books, then you definitely want to check this one out.

I give it 4 out of 5 stars!

Also - something cool.. when I'm finished with a book my kindle gives me the option to tweet that I've finished the book. I did so on this one, and the author tweeted "Thank You" to me for reading. :) It was kinda exciting.

PROOF! ;)

Have a happy Friday girlies!

I've had author comment on my book review posts before. And each time that happens I'm just as excited. Although it's really only happened 3 times, so it's not a regular occurrence, which makes it all the more exciting when it does happen. But I guess we forget sometimes that authors are people too, and they must love hearing about people reading their books.
