Review: Nothing Personal by Jaci Burton

Released: June 24, 2008
Publisher: Samhain Publishing
Rated: Adult

It was nothing personal, just a business arrangement. Ryan McKay is a multi-millionaire with a problem. He needs a bride to fulfill the terms of his grandfathers will. Unfortunately, the one he chose just bailed on him and hes hours away from losing his company. Enter Faith Lewis his demure, devoted assistant. Ryan convinces Faith to step in and marry him, assuring her their marriage is merely a business deal. Ryan is certain he can keep this strictly impersonal. After all, hes the product of a loveless marriage and for years has sealed his own heart in an icy stone. Despite Faiths warmth, compassion and allure, hes convinced hes immune to her charms. Faith will do anything for her boss, but marry him? The shy virgin sees herself as plain and unattractive, a product of a bitter mother who drummed into her head that she wasnt worthy of a mans love. But she agrees to help Ryan fulfill the terms of his grandfathers will, hoping she doesnt lose her heart to him in the process. But love rarely listens to logic, and what follows is anything but business.

What I thought:

This was a really good read. I wanted to see a little more play out with Ryan working out what was wrong with Faith, as far as her self image. While we don't really get any closer in that aspect, I thought it was a wonderful romance with a really good story.

I've read a few of the paper marriage storylines and most I didn't really care for. This was almost the same, but I really found myself drawn to Faith and eventually to Ryan. There wasn't much conflict in this, but plenty of tension. It made for a nice cozy romance.


My Rating:
