In Happily Inc, love means never having to say "I do"....
Wedding coordinator Renee Grothen isn’t meant for marriage. Those who can, do. Those who can’t, plan. But she never could have planned on gorgeous, talented thriller writer Jasper Dembenski proposing - a fling, that is. Fun without a future. And the attraction between them is too strong for Renee to resist. Now, she can have her no-wedding cake...and eat it, too.
After years in the military, Jasper is convinced he’s too damaged for relationships. So, a flirtation - and more - with fiery, determined Renee is way too good to pass up...until his flame becomes his muse.
Renee is an expert at averting every crisis. But is she finally ready to leap into the one thing that can never be controlled: love?

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Besides the padded pages, the story was so-so. Jasper thinks he has issues, but Renee has issues about so many things it detracts from the story. Oh, almost forgot about the "psychic" - I know there are romance books that include psychic/supernatural characters (and I read some of them), but that is not what I was expecting in a Susan Mallery book.
I hope this book isn't a prediction of the type of books we will be seeing from Susan Mallery from here on out. I won't be pre-ordering her books anymore without reading reviews.
I hadn't already read that eBook but others have and that's just not fair to the readers.
Now having said that, I have to point out that this seems to be the thing these days with books published by Harlequin...not my favorite publisher to begin with. I have read a few other novels lately, that they published, in which there were short stories at the end which were already a few years old. Ripoff!
Harlequin also rips you off page-wise because they are misleading. No story ever starts on page 1...try page 9 or page 7. I don't like it when blank pages and title pages "start" the book with "page 1." A story should start on page one WITH the actual story! So if you're looking at Amazon and reading about a book you want to buy, realize if it's by Harlequin that it won't actually have the number of pages they claim it does.
And if they add a short story at the end, or especially if that story is a "read ahead for a sneak preview of such and such upcoming novel" they will count that as pages in the book and they shouldn't. Other publishers do that as well.
Oh, and realize that "HQ" is the trademark for Harlequin now. Maybe they think they're hiding that way. Most of their books are horribly skinny to begin with.
And I agree with the person who said she hoped this novel (meaning the story) wasn't the way Susan Mallery's books were going to go from now on. Ugh, please, no.
Here are some issues I had with the book. First, the ending seemed awfully abrupt. Second, although Renee expects Jasper to apologize for every gaffe or mistake (which he willingly and easily does), she holds herself to a different standard, where she doesn't apologize for anything, except at the abrupt HEA ending. And her problem growing up with her mother, that affects her to this day, I thought was awfully trivial, especially for an adult. While I'm glad I read the book, these issues lowered my rating to 4 stars.
Unrelated to my rating, but the bonus story is actually a previously published novella, A Very Merry Princess, published two years ago. This novella, which I had already read, is still for sale as a free-standing book. I was disappointed that what I thought was a new Happily Inc. story was not a new story.
Great characters, who grew throughout the novel, and the HEA was a tad more believable. Finally there was one person of color, Odell, in a Mallery novel. Diversity is slowly coming to Happily Inc.
