Vanessa, the sister of Mark and Iain Pryce, member of the amazingly disfunctional Pryce family, refuses to rely on a man for anything. She's had an on again off again, no strings attached relationship with Justin Sterling since college. Even when they aren't together; they still indulge in each other. When she gets some pretty awful news, it's him she runs to. Justin struggles to hold back from her. "When Vanessa was like this, it was like all the hurtful words had never been spoken. He went weak for her even though he knew how bad she was." She leaves the morning after she goes to him for comfort and they sleep together. The result? Pregnancy!
In the meantime, Justin has decided it is time to finally move on but when Vanessa tells him she's pregnant, he sees it as an opportunity to win her over. So when she refuses to marry him unless they keep it quiet, he hatches a deal. I love the process that Vanessa goes through. She really doesn't think their marriage will last. But what happens when Vanessa gets her most devastating news yet? If she thought her family was disfunctional to begin with, it's beyond disfunctional now.
This book is not your typical boy meets girl, boy kisses girl, boy loves girl, girl loves boy, boy proposes to girl, boy marries girl, sort of story. This is far better than that. It's a story that covers a decade. It's definitely worth reading. In fact, you should read the whole series, because I'm in love with the Pryce family.
I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.
