Publisher's Summary

The seventh and final tale in the dazzling, heartwarming, and pulse-racing Weekday Brides series.
Gabriella Masini: She's a woman haunted by her past, with the scars to prove it. She believes that fairy tales are for other people. An elite matchmaker at Alliance, she's great at crunching numbers, but something doesn't add up with her latest prospective client: a billionaire bad boy with his own secrets. When Gabi refuses to be his temporary wife, Hunter forces her hand with an offer she can't refuse. But marriage to a man like that could never last...or could it?
Hunter Blackwell: Only his bank account is bigger than his ruthless ability to obtain anything he wants. These days, he has a secret reason to settle down, at least for a while - and he thinks the sensual and sassy Gabi will fit the bill perfectly. But when their marriage of convenience becomes downright dangerous, Hunter must decide how far to take his vow to honor and protect Gabi forever.

Satisfying romance with a good background plot

I have read (or listened to) most of this series but did not read the previous book to this one where the h was first introduced. This did not matter too much as what happened to her was well explained and this book can be read as a stand alone. It does feature many of the characters in the previous books but their relevance is easy to follow.

Following the “fake marriage” theme of the series, this is about the h, still recovering from the abuse and criminal activities of her late husband, who is blackmailed into marriage by H who needs a wife to support his child custody battle – for a child that is not his! Don’t worry, it does make sense eventually.

The H is, naturally, obscenely wealthy and powerful, and used to getting what he wants, but although the monetary figures bandied around did make my head spin a bit, what makes this book really good is his slow and fairly reluctant journey into realising that he is actually head over heels in love. He actually falls in love with the h pretty quickly, but does not recognise the symptoms, or know what to do with them. What is really enjoyable in this book is his sheer bafflement at how the h has worked her way into being such an important part of his life, and his bemusement at how she has changed his outlook on life without him being consciously able to resist. There is some great witty banter between them, and the h is by no means intimidated or dominated by the power or wealth of the H.

There is well written plot revolving around the h’s dead husband and his drug money laundering involving accounts in her name, running alongside the story of the H’s twin brother trying to blackmail him with a paternity suit. Both stories come together for a great plot climax and it was good to see that being a successful and wealthy businessman did not also make H a superhero, and he sensibly left the covert rescue tactics to the experts! In fact I laughed out loud when he was leaping over a fence on the way to deliver the ransom demand for his wife and the thought crossed his mind that he really needed more time at the gym.

Catherine Bybee has done a great job with this book and credit must also go to the narrator, Tanya Eby, who is excellent, as usual.
