On the Dotted Line by Kim Carmichael

On The Dotted Line 


I must admit, I wasn't certain the way this book was going to turn out. And as I was reading it, I was anticipating the millions of ways it could have literally went.

But admittedly, I found the book everything I wanted and than some. And I was so drawn into it, and in love with everything, until Stephanie walked in, and than I was like ready to climb into the pages and whoop on the woman. How dare she ruin everything! 

Randolph Van Ayers the 3rd had to be married by midnight of one of his birthdays, in order to inherit claim to his inheritance. His fiance, Stephanie never showed up for the wedding, and never gave him an explanation. Thus Randolph set out to find another woman at top speeds. Luckily for him, he found a woman also in need, whose shop was being foreclosed on. 

Randolph was up front with the woman, named Willow. He explained just about everything. All he needed was her signature on the dotted line. They would than proceed to go to Vegas and have a quick ceremony and be Mr. and Mrs. Randolph Van Ayers. 

Neither of them planned on falling in love, but it happened. And what's even worse, with this contract, come rules. For instance: they must be in bed together by midnight. On top of all of that, Willow wanted to keep their relationship a secret from her friends. Than to find out her friends: Jade and Slate, also knew Randolph. When Randolph's Mother: Lillian had their engagement party, low and behold guess who showed up? Slate and Jade. And they were a bit upset, they had suspected something was going on, but than to find this out, hurt their feelings. 

The woman who raised Willow, is named Nanette. Nan for short. At first she seemed disappointed in the arrangement, but later down the line, she knew and could see it was love. She also told Willow it was no longer her place to take care of her, but instead, someone else, like the man of her dreams. 

There are a lot of twist and turns and through out this book, as well as some great romance. And I was truly worried. As I stated, I wanted to climb into the book and handle Stephanie myself.

I found this book well worth the read, and could not put it down. I give it five stars and suggest you give it a look see as well! I promise you, you will not be disappointed!
