Sex wasn't supposed to be part of the deal.

Three years into a marriage of convenience, Molly's high-powered CEO husband wants to add a new term to their marriage agreement. Sex—without any messy emotional entanglements. But weekly sex with Luke, despite their carefully negotiated terms, is likely to get messy eventually.

Content in a mutually beneficial arrangement, Molly isn't going to fall for Luke the way she fell for an old lover, only to be crushed in the end.  She vows to stay strong, no matter how much intimacy develops between them in bed. When her old lover returns, finally wanting a real relationship, Molly has the chance to give her heart to a man who will accept it.

It's too bad she now wants to give it to her husband, who has never admitted her heart is what he wants.

  • Loved this romance book

    By MommaMira
    What a twist on what romance should be. It’s always refreshing to see two people come together when they least expect it.

  • Molly and Luke need to renegotiate.

    By Bernie856
    Molly had drawn up a negotiated contract with Luke that was mutually beneficial. He had an escort to social functions and protection from women who tried to pounce on him because of his bank account and social standing. She had protection from her emotions they had done nothing else for her but make her vulnerable.Look at what happened with Baron it was not happening again . This marriage of convenience might need to be looked at at least the pertinent clauses . She did not find it comfortable convenient or acceptable to use professional services to take care of herself,and lately Luke is all kinds of appealing. This is a great story . Sweet and tangy HEA 😊

    Molly and Luke have enough to do with their lives just to manage their busy, profitable careers. Molly is determined not to give her love to any man again after being dropped by her former boyfriend, Baron. Luke can't fathom the fact that his childhood sweetheart turned on him and gave industry secrets to his competition. He'll never trust another woman. But they both need a trustworthy friend to pretend to be married to. It will help both of their individual businesses and further their own goals. What do they do? Negotiate an arranged marriage with all expectations clearly spelled out. But when weekly sexual encounters enter into the arrangement after three years of wedded happiness, sparks fly and the relationship reaches its boiling point. The characters are wonderfully presented and grow through the story, but the plot is a bit predictable. If you enjoy light romances with heat thrown in for good measure, then A Negotiated Marriage is just your cup of tea.
  • Too Professional

    By LucyMau
    I wanted hot and steamy but I got uptight business people in the bedroom. I mean everything about the book is proper. I loved the storyline, the book had so much potential. But the sex ruined if for me. It lacks spontaneity and excitement. Everything seemed planned premeditated, predictable. Sorry I just couldn't finish it 😔😔😔
  • Great love story

    By Whosnameisnttaken
    Good thing this was such a good love story to me or I would have stopped reading because the F bomb was dropped too much. Other than that, great love story to read!
  • Sweet & Steamy

    By Ellierwill
    The characters were so charming and you can just feel the chemistry between even from the beginning. I also love that the main character Molly starts to have feelings for her husband Luke even though she "shouldn't" and has to try to balance between the discovery of those feelings and how to keep Luke from seeing them. It was a really cute love story but it had enough spice and steam to keep it really interesting.
