Top critical review
Fluffy and sweet, ok but not great, includes a lot of bedroom scenes.

Bethany is the only child of a wealthy business man and his trophy wife. Her parents gave her money and things but never time or love. Her father arranged a marriage for Bethany and Douglas, for the purpose of a business merger. Bethany does not like Douglas and goes to Las Vegas with the intent of running away from her parents. She wants to get a job and live independently.
Jack and his siblings inherited a large ranch in Montana. They will each receive money after being married for three months. Jack needs money to develop and run the ranch, so he goes to Las Vegas hoping to find someone to marry him for a short time.
They meet. They marry. They actually get along great. The major conflict is Bethany doing an approach/avoidance. She fears intimacy because she doesn't want to get hurt after he divorces her in three months. She welcomes the physical interaction but is closed up emotionally. A second plot involves what happens with Bethany's former fiancé.
This was ok, not great. I had no major problems with it. I see it as a beach read where you don't mind being interrupted. It's a sweet, feel good story with nice characters, almost too sweet. Nice things happen. Bethany finds freedom to be herself, think, do and contribute. She has impressive business acumen. She was also silly and irresponsible. Jack is the kind of guy most women love: respectful, devoted to her and gorgeous. There is a lot of descriptive sex, including rear door activity.
