Book Review: The Contract
That is the reputation that precedes Richard VanRyan. He lives life the way he wants, no concern for the opinion of others. He cares for no one, is completely unrepentant, and he has no desire to change his ways.
Katharine Elliott works under Richard as his PA. She despises him and his questionable ethics, but endures all the garbage he sends her way, because she needs the job. Her end goal is far more important than the daily abuse and demands she tolerates from her nasty tyrant of a boss. Until the day, he asks her for something she never expected. A new role with a personal contract— fiancée instead of PA.
What happens when two people who loathe each other, have to live together and act as though they are madly in love?
That's what happens.
Can the power of love really change a person?
Will they survive the contract?
What do you do when the one person you hate the most becomes the one person you can't live without?
I really liked this author's My Favorite Kidnapper book. I devoured it so fast. So, I was very excited to read this book when I saw the new cover.
I am saying it now that Katharine is a saint for putting up with Richard. He came off as a big jerk in the beginning. Katharine is so kind and I really felt bad for her but the more time she spent with Richard; she did let him know she was no push over.
The romance is a slow burn that has that enemies to lovers vibe. However, I felt like I struggled a bit to feel that strong romantic connection between Katharine and Richard. Despte Richard being nice to Katharine. I wanted the spice to be turned up between these two. I kind of could not get over how mean Richard was in the beginning. Still, I did find this book to be a quick read.
