ON THE DOTTED LINE
BY KIM CARMICHAEL
~ ~ BLURB ~ ~
Rather than silver, Randolph Van Ayers III was born with a platinum spoon in his mouth and plenty of strings attached. Faced with a list of specific goals he must achieve in order to earn control of his family’s banking empire, he’s accomplished each task and triumphed. One item remains on his list. He must marry by his thirty-third birthday and stay married for one year. However, when his so-called fiancée leaves him on the courtroom steps only hours before his deadline, he realizes he might lose for the first time in his life, and a Van Ayers never fails.
Taught to rely on the universe for answers, Willow Day has always struggled in the material world, specifically her lack of material. With her small holistic store near foreclosure and without a home, she must do anything within her power to make the business work and take care of the woman who raised her. When the rude, yet gorgeous, Randolph the Third offers to fix all her troubles in exchange for one year of her life, she opens her mind and takes a chance.
It’s the battle of the mystical over the money. Between a hidden pet who looks more like a cotton ball, performance artists with wings, and a woman who spouts advice like a living fortune cookie, everything from restaurant reservations to a trip to celebrate the winter solstice create clashes for the couple as they learn how to fit into each other’s worlds.
With both their futures at stake, they must learn to accept reality, what the fates have dealt them and the consequences of falling in love from the moment they decided to sign on the dotted line.
My 4 star review of On The Dotted Line
I'm not going to lie... There was a slow start to the book, don't get me wrong, I love her writing style. I also enjoyed the back and forth bickering with Randolph and Willow. I liked how their relationship grew, but what made the book a 4 star for me was the last 50% and how everything started to come together in the right way.
I love how Willow made Randolph a better man, but I also love how he made Willow more accountable. They were truly made for each other. Willow is so easy going and Randolph is so by the book, they complimented each other, and making each other a better person.
Of course there was the roller coaster of feelings, where they both fought their feelings. But they ultimately decided correctly. I would tell anyone to read this book, especially if you want something different than your typical alpha male, overly sexed up book. This book makes you feel and want to have someone fight for you in the end.
