A marriage of convenience has never been like this.

Just before her eighteenth birthday, the doctors tell Emily she has three months to live. Not much time to complete the bucket list she's had since she was twelve. The first item is the hardest--"Get married"--so she turns to the only man she knows who can help.

Paul, a barely reformed bad boy, has inherited a fortune from his mother, but his life is defined by his conflicted relationship with his father--a white-collar, organized-crime boss who, thanks to Paul, is being brought up on federal charges. Without Emily's testimony, his father might walk, so Paul agrees to her unconventional proposal. He'll be her husband for her last three months.

They agree that she'll testify against his father and he'll help her complete her bucket list. It's not supposed to be a true marriage. No consummation. No future. No love.

She's supposed to die, after all, and love might not be enough


Sadie White's summer job isn't going to be on the beach life-guarding or working at rental booths like most kids her age. With her single mother's increasing pregnancy and refusal to work, Sadie has to take over her mother's job as a domestic servant for one of the wealthy summer families on a nearby island.

When the family arrives at their summer getaway, Sadie is surprised to learn that the owner of the house is Jax Stone, one of the hottest teen rockers in the world. If Sadie hadn't spent her life raising her mother and taking care of the house she might have been normal enough to be excited about working for a rock star.

Even though Sadie isn't impressed by Jax's fame, he is drawn to her. Everything about Sadie fascinates Jax but he fights his attraction. Relationships never work in his world and as badly as he wants Sadie, he believes she deserves more. By the end of the summer, Jax discovers he can't breathe without Sadie.

  12. I seriously love discovering new books through these memes and I haven't heard of either of these but they both sound like solid contemporaries. I still want to read Abbi Glines' The Vincent Boys (hopefully soon) so I can get a taste for her writing. I have heard good things about her books in general though. Great picks, thanks for sharing!!

  13. WHOA! That first one sounds crazy! I can't decide if I'm disgusted, or if I HAVE to read it!? It's like "that show" or "that soap opera" you know you watch but you'd NEVER admit you actually watch! Right!? I have to share this with Rach! Great share! Happy reading! Thanks for stopping by!

    Thanks for stopping by my WoW!

  17. This is the first I've seen of Listed, and it definitely sounds rather sad. Abbi Glines has a lot of books out that everyone is raving about so Breathe will probably be just as good as the others.

  18. I love the sound of book one, I always enjoy marriage of convenience story lines. thanks for sharing My WoW

  19. Listed sounds like the type of book I would love! I'm always intrigued by marriage of convenience stories and giving it a NA contemporary feel adds a different twist to the old stereotype. Thanks for sharing!

  20. Great choices! I think Listed sounds amazing, even though I'm sure it'll be sad. And you can never go wrong with Abbi Glines!

  21. Listed sounds great but heartbreaking! If she lives at the end then I'll read it! LOL Thanks for stopping by!

  22. Listed sounds good, but familiar. Great picks.

  23. Two interesting wow picks. I will have to check them out. Thanks for sharing and visiting my WoW. =]

  24. Great picks this week! Both of them look really good :) Thanks for stopping by my WoW post this week!

Hi guys! Thanks for taking your time to read through my post and comment on this blog. I appreciate each and every one of your comments, though I might not respond immediately to them. Also, if you're commenting on a meme, I would prefer replying on your meme post rather than here on my blog. :)
