Publisher's Summary

Our marriage is a sham. I'm the first to admit it. Only privately, of course. 

Notorious playboy Luka Zoric needs a wife and the good PR it brings. 

I just need the career boost being his top model will give me. It's a win-win - on paper. But since when has real life been simple?

His jealousy makes me crazy.

The control he maintains over my body is unacceptable.

I really shouldn't be so turned on by it.

But there's more to both me and my husband than meets the eye. 

And it isn't long before I'm wondering - which of us has made the bigger mistake? 

Book one of three.

Disappointed

There is suppose to be another book that is the conclusion to this story. I can't find it on Audible. I HATE books that leave you hanging. I am having second thoughts on reading any more of her books.

Cliff hanger

Beware of the cliffhanger! My wish is for authors to have all the audible books out at one time! When is the next audible expected?

Cliffhanger!!!! Story Was Great

I hate cliffhangers. The storyline and characters were great. I knew something was off as I got close to the end and there wasn't any drama. Very disappointed because the second and third books I can't get with Audible and the last two are $7 each as Kindle books.

Okay

I listened to this because it was part of the audible escape package. It felt like the same story as her other books. I hate that every time her female characters are about to stand up for themselves they just end up having sex and burying their problems. Also, there’s always something they are hiding and then get caught. Too predictable and frustrating. Probably won’t finish the series.

Ends of a heck of a cliffhanger

Stella Gray is a new author to me. Narrated by Elena Wolfe and Sebastian York, they did justice to the storyline and I found them easy to listen too and they really brought the story to life for me. This is the first book in the Convenience trilogy and be prepared this ends in a cliff hanger so you have been warned.   From start to finish Stella Gray wove together a story that drew me in and kept me hooked. This was an entertaining, at times humorous story with secrets and was steamy.

Too many plot holes!

This could have been a great book. Sigh.... First, I didn't know this was one of those "listen to the next book to finish the story" type of books. I hate those. At least come to a conclusion before you introduce more plot. Second, there were so many times when the male character did or said something hurtful, yet they keep going with the story as though it never happened. Sorry Stella, but women aren't like that and your publishing editor should have caught those holes. Third, each time there was a photoshoot and the guy does his thing, there are NO consequences which isn't real life. Fourth, how in the world did they go from horrible fighting to him making breakfast and taking care of her. Surely you could have taken a few paragraphs to fill in the gaps. Fifth, how can someone be so overcome with guilt one day, then not get it off their chest until two days later when confronted. *****Overall, I'm not happy with this one. So unhappy that I didn't even bother to look for the next book because I have no desire to listen to more plot holes. I'm so glad I didn't pay for this book and it came with my subscription.

CLIFFHANGER

I wish I had read the reviews before I listened to this book. My fault. I just looked at the stars. I hate cliffhangers. I don't usually use my credits on books that are less than 10 hours. I enjoy Audible Escape for shorter books, and for a lot of wonderful authors like Linda Lael Miller. If I had realized this was part of a series I would have checked to see if the whole series was on Escape. I'm not willing to spend my credits to find out how the story ends, as much as I enjoyed the story. I do enjoy series of books that can stand alone, and then the stories of the people continue in the next book. Building on previous books to deepen characters and story lines is great. Using cliffhangers to ensure sales of the next book is a cheap trick in my book, and it doesn't work.

Annoyingly good!

Stella is one of my favorite authors so I'm always reading her story even if I'm angry 85% of the time at how stupid the main female roles usually are and her main male roles are always beyond any amount of jerk you can encounter throughout your life. THAT been said, she is an amazing writer.

Overall, it was good. Not 5 star good.

I actually enjoyed this story and was hoping that I would. I didn’t give it a full 5 stars because I agree with the other reviewers, as the female MC didn’t have that much of a backbone. She would appear strong, only to fall apart at the drop of a hat. There were holes in the story as well, seemed to jump around a bit, but overall I would recommend this story, which is Book One in a series. I’m hoping book two is better.

Is it a sham?

Fast paced, exciting and steamy, Stella Gray has another winning series on her hands! I can tell from this first book we are in for a fantastic ride. Luka needs to fix his reputation in order to make the family company more respectable. What better way than to get married? With his pick of any model he wants, he chooses Brooklyn. Brooklyn has been looking for her big break and several years ago was offered that chance in a quick hook up with Luka. Now is her real chance. Marry him and soar to the top. But could it be that easy? Talk about off the charts chemistry. These two have it in spades. Luka is definitely an overprotective alpha and Brooklyn is a smart, ambitious woman. Will they find out they are a good fit or is this all a sham? Leaving us on a cliffhanger that has us anxiously awaiting the next in the series, Gray has captured my attention and her characters have my heart! Elena Wolfe and Sebastian York are amazing as always. These two have a rhythm that flows and the chemistry makes the story. They make the storytelling sound easy and the characters alive!
