Theresa Chartley has no time for marriage, and no room for disappointment--especially with French soccer player Emile Renaud. Sure, he’s gorgeous, but he’s wrong for a career woman like Theresa. If only her mother would stop pressuring her to get married and let her live her own life. Finding a very unsuitable husband to shock her parents into silence and put an end to the marriage campaign is the only answer. Emile will do just fine.
Theresa’s outrageous proposal is the answer to Emile’s problem. They’re complete opposites living in different worlds, but a fake marriage will let him ditch his clingy ex once and for all. Then he’ll be free of commitment and free to live his life the way he wants to.
A contract. Twelve months. And they walk away Scott free. But a year of marriage tests them both in unimaginable ways. Maybe Emile isn’t unsuitable after all, but how can Theresa let herself love him when she signed a contract to let him go?
Kassiah: When I see a book that has a sexy soccer playing Frenchman as on of the main characters, well, I get a little excited. That’s exactly how I felt when I saw Ros Clarke’s An Unsuitable Husband up for grabs. Add in a marriage of convenience, some humor, and super steamy times and you have yourself a fun, easy to read book.
Soccer player Emile Renauld is sexy, charming, and in desperate need to get away from a very clingy ex-girlfriend. Enter the feisty, independent Theresa Charltey. Not only is she beautiful and successful, she’s looking for a way to get her overbearing mother off her back. And what better way to do that than to marry someone totally wrong for her? Sure, this plot line has been done to death, but that doesn’t mean it’s not entertaining to read! These two had lots of chemistry, and some laugh out loud moments between them, too. I found Emile to be quite endearing and though Theresa took a bit for me to really like, she grew on me. I guess. 😛
The writing in this one is good, the pace keeps the story moving along, and even with the somewhat contrived and unrealistic insta-love, the book was really good. Be sure to check it out.
