Scandalous BrideWoman who would do anything to get what she wantedBut what did Nat actually know about his newfound wife? Theirs had been a whirlwind marriage everything had moved so fast and all Nat could see was tha Almost every chapter written didn't feel like fiction The behaviors then reactions and the emotions of the characters are superbly written and makes the readers feel as if you are getting a glimpse of their life It's not your typical meet cute with love declaration at the end of the book with an epilogue to follow but the trials after a marriage and getting used to being a married couple after the honeymoon All 4 stars go to the writing but not the story It truly was not a romance novel at all The H with his games his jealousies and considering his family background with close parents and a loving childhood came across as a selfish spoiled brat who trusted innuendos and rumors than his own wife The h is an idiot who goes to confront unscrupulous evil characters with no preparation but appeal to a goodness of heart that h herself acknowledges doesn't exist She is a spineless stupid female For all that the plot and the characters are not like able this books is truly addicting the way a bad soap is Like spectators of a train wreck this book can hold you with the way its so well written I really haven't come across anything this gripping despite its atrocious plot

Don't tell anyone butNathan Monroe didn't know what to believe he'd just heard that the woman he'd married wasn't all that she seemed Olivia MonT Olivia was hiding some deep dark secret Torn by jealousy and distrust their marriage was heading for the rocks and the only way to save it was for Nat to discover the truth about his scandalous bride 3 Stars From the moment they set eyes on each other Nathan and Olivia knew they belonged together A whirlwind courtship lead to a whirlwind wedding and then a heavenly two month honeymoon Coming home all that they didn't know about each other started to come between them; beginning with horrible gossip that Olivia was having an affair with her boss James Her reluctance to uit her job only fuels the seed of doubt planted in Nat But an affair was only part of the gossip; it was the part that she had killed her first husband that made Olivia cringe and fear for her marriage How could she confess to her new husband that it was trueI have mixed feelings on this one We only see Nat through Olivia's eyes and because of that we tend to see Nat as overbearing and overly possessive There are hints to Olivia's past but it's not discussed until the end of the book This too I found leaving me unsatisfied As the story progresses Olivia's weakness in not telling Nat the truth makes Nat's behaviour actually acceptable and I found myself losing sympathy for her This had a great beginning chapter but I'm sorry to say that Ms Hamilton let me down The premise is good just not fulfilled
