I am so excited to be on this 2020 Series Blog Tour from Harlequin. When I saw the opportunity to review Temporary Wife Temptation I jumped on it! I am so excited to for this Korean arranged marriage story. Without further ado, let’s get to the book review!
Much more than he bargained for…
“You want me to find you a wife?”
“No. I want you to be my wife.”
Garrett Song is this close to taking the reins of his family’s LA fashion empire…until the Song matriarch insists he marry her handpicked bride first. To block her matchmaking, he recruits Natalie Sobol to pose as his wife. She needs a fake spouse as badly as he does. But when passion burns down their chaste agreement, the flames could destroy them all… l…
(Disclaimer: I received this book from Netgalley. This has not impacted my review which is unbiased and honest.)
Temporary Wife Temptation is a steamy and fast paced romance book I devoured in one night. Bringing together career driven Garrett and hard working Natalie, their chemistry is electric from the beginning. Garrett needs a wife to take the CEO mantel and Natalie needs a husband for the illusion of stability in order for her to adopt her niece. I loved how driven our main characters are. Garrett has spent his whole life molded into being the perfect heir and still emotionally reeling from a past relationship. Natalie is a cooking challenged and driven character.
Fake dating is one of my favorite tropes, but this arranged marriage is right up that alley. I mean, I can’t get enough of this cover! This mix between business and casual, workplace romance and something more. I enjoyed how Natalie feels disconnected from her culture and seeks help from her neighbor – these interactions were the sweetest! At the same time, Garrett is deeply connected to his family, which is part of his problems.
Temporary Wife Temptation is a book that will sweep you away. There are moments of humor, a few shed tears, and sizzling chemistry. I am so excited to see where Lee’s career goes! Find Temporary Wife Temptation on Goodreads, Amazon, Indiebound & The Book Depository.
