Release Blitz-Review+Giveaway : Married By Contract by Noelle Adams

Title: Married by Contract
Author: Noelle Adams
Genre: Contemporary Romance
 Release Date: July 20, 2016


Three years into a five-year marriage of convenience, Jenn finds herself wanting something she never thought she'd want from her laidback, ex-military husband. Sex--as a much-needed release of tension from her high stress job. But weekly sex with Nick, despite their careful parameters, is likely to get messy eventually.

Ever since her father walked out on her as a child, Jenn knows never to assume the people she loves will stick around, so she's not about to trust Nick with her heart. She vows to stay strong, no matter how much intimacy develops between them in bed.

But what starts as a tension-reliever soon becomes so much more, until it threatens both their practical arrangement and the heart Jenn has worked so hard to keep safe.

Married by Contract is a standalone contemporary romance novella (43K words).

I'm a big fan of fake engagement/marriage stories.It's probably one of my favorite tropes in the romance genre!And Noelle Adams' books always give me what I want- romance with steam and emotions.There is never too much angst and its a feel-good story.

This book has the same premise as Noelle Adams' A Negotiated Marriage, but with role reversal.We have Jenn and Nick who have been in a marriage of convenience,but lately Jenn has been wanting more.Jenn never trusts anyone fully as her father left when she was a child.She puts all her hardwork into developing her business and they've become quite successful.But, she needed a married status for the investors and others to take her seriously.

At the same time Nick, an ex-military man, had needed some money to start his own PI firm, which Jenn would lend him as an exchange for a marriage of convenience and he would pay it back to her eventually.Neither one of them factored in their desire for each other.

Unable to bear the sexual tension, they add sex once a week to their arrangement.Soon, once a week isn't enough, and the arrangement grows more complicated.Emotions get tangled up.Will they get their HEA or will it end in heartbreak??

I really enjoyed this book.The characters were really good and the romance was super sweet.It also had the perfect amount of steam in it.My only complaint would probably be that since it is told solely from Jenn's POV we don't know much of what Nick is thinking till the end.Though I loved A Negotiated Marriage, I think this was a lot better.The author has taken an old premise and executed it in a wonderful manner.

So, if you're looking for a feel-good romance with a great storyline give this one a try, and check out Noelle's other books too!! :D



And now he was smiling again—and looking at her with an expression that was amused and slightly smug and way too hot. “Well, then I can help you out, if you want.” 

“What? Help me with what?” She’d completely stopped moving on the machine now. She was just staring at him, excitement and anxiety both throbbing in her veins. 

“Help you work off your…tension.” 

“That’s crazy.” 

“Why is it crazy?” 

“Because…because we don’t do that.” 

“We could. I have some tension myself, you know.” 

“You do?” 

“Oh yeah.” 

“And you don’t want to hire an escort?” 

“That doesn’t really do it for me.” He’d stepped closer to her and now reached a hand out to help her off the machine. 

She took his hand and got off, feeling like she might just melt into the floor. “So you think we should…” 

“Work off tension together. Why not?” 

“I…I don’t know.” She really didn’t know why they shouldn’t. They were both adults, and they’d always gotten along well. Sex didn’t have to be serious. She’d always known that. In fact, she’d never had any sex that wasn’t casual in her life. At least with Nick, she wouldn’t end up with those sick feelings she used to get when she’d fucked someone she wished she hadn’t. 

Nick was smiling at her more fully now, like he already knew her answer. “You want to, don’t you?” 

“And you want to?” 

“Of course I do.” 

“You want…to have sex…”

“With you.”
