I blamed him for my lapse in judgment. I blamed his eyes, the ocean blue eyes
that looked straight into mine unapologetically, and that frown on his face I
had no idea I would become so fascinated with in time.
It wasn’t long after he said I was the biggest mistake of
his life that things started to change. No, he still didn’t talk much, but
anyone can string a few words together. His actions spoke the loudest to me.
And day after day my heart started to get a mind of its own.
One second he was no one. The next he became everything.
One second he was unattainable. The next he seemed to be completely mine.
One second I thought we were in love. The next it was still nothing but a lie.
After all, I was Rose and he was Jack. We were doomed from
the very beginning with those names. Did you expect anything else?
Title Marriage for One
Author: Ella Maise
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: May 9, 2019
Jack and I, we did everything backward. The day he lured me
into his office—which was also the first day we met—he proposed… You’d think a
guy who looked like him—a bit cold maybe, but still striking and very
unattainable—would only ask the love of his life to marry him, right? You’d
think he must be madly in love.
Nope. It was me he asked. A complete stranger who had never
even heard of him. A stranger who had been dumped by her fiancé only weeks
before. You’d think I’d laugh in his face, call him insane—and a few other
names—then walk away as quickly as possible. Well…I did all those things except
the walking away part.
It took him only minutes to talk me into a business
deal…erm, I mean marriage, and only days for us to officially tie the knot.
Happiest day of my life. Magical. Pop the champagne… Not. It was the worst day.
Jack Hawthorne was nothing like what I’d imagined for myself.
