BOOK REVIEW...The Temporary Wife by Jeannie Moon

It was an offer she couldn’t refuse…from a man she couldn’t resist.

Kindergarten teacher Megan Rossi is devoted to being a mother to her best friend’s five-year-old daughter, Molly. When the child was orphaned, Meg became the little girl’s legally named guardian—over the objections of Molly’s wealthy grandparents, the Campbells. Now the Campbells are petitioning for custody, and Meg is faced with a long and expensive legal battle. The last thing she expects is for her former high school boyfriend—and the Campbells’ estranged son—to offer a solution: marriage.

Billionaire software developer Jason Campbell knows his parents don’t have Molly’s best interests at heart—it’s all about control for them. There is one way he can ensure that his sister’s last wishes are honored. He will offer Meg the protection of his name and lawyers until the custody arrangement has been finalized , then he’ll secure his niece’s future with a very generous divorce settlement. Jason’s considered all the scenarios, except one—that the sparks that once flew between he and Meg might reignite a burning passion. And that his confirmed bachelor heart might just melt away from the heat…

Wow.  "The Temporary Wife" was different from your typical contemporary romance starting from the beginning.  Normally when I begin books, the characters usually hate each other or are at complete odds.  This was not the case for this novel as from the start the characters put aside their differences for the sake of five year old, Molly and try to do their best in doing the right thing which is to get married.

I was really gripped from Moon's different approach in executing Megan and Jason's rekindled love story.  I may have read many synopsis' that resemble this novel but the difference between them and "The Temporary Wife" is that there is actual heart in this.  I could actually feel the characters' emotions and chemistry come out through the pages and went through many laughs and tears that bested a tribute of the power of love.

Definitely a cute read!

My Rating:

-Overall : 8.5
-Plot : 8.5
-Writing : 8.5
-Characters : 8.5
-Cover : 8
