I love this author - and was not disappointed with this book. Interesting beginning, took awhile to understand what was going on - but the story involves a young woman who became pregnant after one encounter with a guy who comes from a wealthy family. Throw in her alcoholic, abusive father and a rich girlfriend that doesn't like what's going on.... Great boook.
This book is my personal favorite. I have another copy so I am letting this one go. This story is about a girl and a boy, from 2 completely different worlds who end up pregnant after a one night stand. Their story is heart breaking and I was totally sobbing my eyes out throughout this read. My kind of book. You will not be disappointed!!
Great book about a girl from a disfuntional family having a one night affair and becoming pregnant by a boy from a wealthy influential family and the girl's father wanting a money settlement and the boy choosing to marry her to cut the father out and to take responsibility for the child even if she was not from his class of society and he had a girlfriend at the time.
From the Los Angelos Times: "A 'must read' for anyone who has lived and loved."
This was a really good romance. I'm not so good at reviews, so I will quote from the book's summary.
"The wedding of Catherine Anderson to wealthy Clay Forrester is the social event of the season. But everything abou tit, from the formal vows to the magnificent reception, is a lie. Catherine, a college student from a poor and troubled family, is pregnant after a blind date with Clay, a wealthy law student. And it with great reluctance that she agrees to his offer of a 'marriage of convenience.'
Catherine and Clay plan to divorce after the baby arives. They move into a lovely home and settle into an acceptable routine, until Clay announces that he no longer wants seperate beds. When Catherine reminds him of their arrangement, Clay angrily begins seeing his high society ex-girlfriend. It's not until after their daugher is born and divorce papers are filed that Catherine finds herself falling in love with Clay, wondering if it is too late to actually be more than his wife in name only."
I've recently discovered L Spencer and love her work. This is a contemporary book. Very well written and I was riveted to the story of two people who have to work out a situation. Their relationship developed in a gradual, believable way and I knew they were meant to be together. Loved it.
