    This ended up being just okay. Disappointing given the beginning started off with a bang and had me hooked.. This had the potential to be so much stronger, but the author just relied on sexual content to deliver a story rather than plot.

    2.5 starsAn enormouse amount of sugary sweetness. It was suppose to be a forced marriage angstfest but the hero did so much ass kissing, it was hard to feel anything but bored. Nice try though.

    Their love is not convincing. It was all about boring sex scenes. Why did she leave him just after three months of wonderful (!) relationship and undying (!) love from her side? What about patience and giving chances? After she left he didn't try hard enough to reach her either. Both moved on with other lovers... What was about the other woman who showed up with no real reason? On top all those plot fails writing style fails to convey necessary emotions for a love story.

    Sorry I want my couple to remain celibate while apart especially if they have been apart for such a short time. Awful book!

    I'm not a huge fan in the "marry me or else" storyline, though this one was a bit different than the standard "he's a douche, she's so innocent" storyline. She's still semi-innocent, but at least there wasn't someone attempting to squeeze in between the two, and the man actually had feelings prior the to "or else".

    I bought this with a pule of secondhand books to see what mass market romance was like. I have to say, "Meh." The forced marriage consisted of him running after her, and her loving him for his clothes and his money. Oh, and because she teaches, selling herself does not make her a whore but a saint. Weird and twisted but probably not in the way the author intended.

    Apa cuma aku saja yang merasa tarik ulur antara sang hero dan heroine bukan saja membosankan tapi juga sangat-sangat menyebalkan? =.=aRasanya aku membaca sangat cepat sekali di bagian tengah karena tarik-ulur yang menyebalkan itu. Sebenarnya di bagian awal premisnya cukup oke buatku, meski aku sudah pernah membaca dengan plot yang kurang-lebih sama, tetapi setelah eksekusinya, kenapa jadi membosankan sekali ya? Aku banyak skip sejujurnya. >.<

    I know I enjoyed reading this book, but unfortunately, it wasn't memorable. As a result, I can say that it was a pleasant way to while away an hour or two, but didn't leave enough of an impression for me to give it a very high review.

    My first real adult novel, yay. But honestly the writing was horrid - "stood to his feet"? Really? And seriously, "evocative" is not a word that should be used to describe kissing. Plus, the relationship is unrealistic; I don't believe in falling in love overnight.

    TRIGGER WARNING: forced marriage, dubconMy facebook review:Bride, Bought and Paid For is explicitly about romantic sexy rape. The hero uses his wealth and power to force an innocent woman to marry him to save her father from prison. She doesn't want to, but he's just so darn sexy and powerful, she has no choice. Gross. It's bad enough when that happens in a historical, but I can't handle it in a modern day story. Also, I put the book down somewhere and now I can't find it.I eventually found it and finished it. This one was basically just boring. Too rapey to be romantic, but too domestic to be a rape fantasy. I'm never going to be interested in a man who has to control every aspect of a woman's life, anyway.I gave it an extra star for the heroine's unintentionally hilarious attempts to connect with her students at the inner city high school where she teaches.-Mercury

    Looks like I’m the one of the few who didn’t enjoy this book. I had high hopes to start but ended up disappointed and frustrated for most of the book. This book had just too much sexual content with very limited plot. And I was a bit turned off by how Romy just melts like a ton of bricks whenever Xavier touches her.

    This book had potentials but it failed to up my interest. There are some side stories that are too irrelevant. I'm thinking it's the author's way of engaging readers but it did nothing but annoy me. Sad... this could have been a good read. There were other HQ books somewhat similar to this and came out well. This one... no.

    It was alright - nothing that would stay with me and make me want to do a re-read though. I could have lost the bitchy-other-woman-who-wants-my-man plot device. The heroine's instance on teaching in high school in lower-income suburbs was much more interesting and, in my opinion, would have made for a far more interesting plot device if expanded.

    ....currently listening to this on Audio book... So far so good. Good narrator and the heroine is strong... unlike other HQ females. We'll see how it goes.... I'll report in with a full review once I finish... Hold Please....

    Standarnya HQ dengan konflik yang bagi gw terlalu datar yah, perlawanan sang heroine d bab awal begitu mudah. Lsg menerima begitu saja proposal dari sang hero, dan lsg menerima setiap "hukuman" dari sang hero..yah ga terlalu jelek dan ga terlalu bagus..just so so:)

    I really like reading Harlequin Presents but sometimes, the titles they use on their books is just ridiculous. This book was not an exception. I also like HB but unfortunately, this book just did not do it for me like her usual work does.

    Loved it. I love how strong men have to force women into a relationship because the man loves the woman.Would recommend to everyone. It is a book you don't want to put down because you want to see how it ends.

    I thought it to be incredibly boring. The characters were flat. I felt like the story just went on and on but nothing happened.

    This was a pretty good read. The couple had great chemistry and I liked that the alpha male wasn't too over the top.

    A very common plot with harlequins. Well written, very few grammar issues. A good rainy day time waster, lol

    Formulaic but fun. Rushed ending. No real fun, bitchy OW and romantic strife. Not her best, not her worst.

    L'histoire avait du potentiel, dommage qu'il n'ait pas été plus exploité, l'histoire est mignonne mais vraiment pas creusée.
