What happens when an unsuspecting girl and guy are thrown into a marriage they don’t want?
That’s exactly the case of Ivory and Darius, born into different families whose marriage serves to prevent competition between their businesses.
No matter how they oppose the idea, their parents are hell-bent on marrying them to each other to honor a five-generation-old deal that took place between their ancestors.
For Ivory, whose heart has just been broken, her marriage to the handsome but cold Darius Quartz fails to provide her the happy life she wants. Instead, she finds herself in endless boredom and doing the same things she’d been doing the past six months.
That is, until Darius arrives home from his training and her ex returns in the picture. Thrown in her loyal best friend, Rose, and Darius’s insane cousin, Adrian. Her life suddenly turns upside down and becomes exciting and a whole lot crazier!
It’s a long journey full of tears, fun, joy, even insanity, and most of all, love.

I thought this was quite a fun and enjoyable read. As long as you don’t over analyze all the details of the story and just enjoy the ride… 😉
It starts with Ivory finding out that her boyfriend has been cheating on her all the time. Brokenhearted and all, enters her overbearing mother who forces her to marry Darius to prevent competition between their businesses and to honor a five-generation-old deal that took place between their ancestors. In other word, it’s an arrange marriage between business rivals. 😉
To cut the story short, she married Darius, their marriage started off cold, then they started spending time together and got to know each other, and got closer… Then her douche of an ex returns in the picture… add to the equation her crazy BFF, Rose, and, last but not the least, Darius insanely funny cousin Adrian… Ivory’s supposedly boring life just got more crazier and exciting!
I really enjoyed the humour of the story… Ivory has a very likeable character… she is born rich but is down to earth and unspoiled. Darius on the other hand I thought was a lost cause in the beginning, but then there are hints that he is more than what meets the eye. It’s too bad that I am not able to read Darius POV or get to know him more. He is, to the end, still a mystery.. But, despite all that, I find myself warming up to him.
But Adrian, Darius cousin, really stole most of the show here. I thought he was hilarious. I find myself enjoying Ivy and Adrian’s antics, I thought they were amusing.
Story wise, it does miss context…. but entertaining wise, I thought it was sweet and funny.. Quite endearing really. 🙂
