    Amazing Characters -Amazing Story

    Ever work a job where someone you interact with everyday- boss, coworker, vendor - you hope chokes on their sandwich or has a fatal accident with a letter opener? Be prepared: Richard VanRyan is that person. I have disliked the Hero of the story before. However, they have charming qualities that I can overcome douche like behavior. Richard - OMG - he is just an asshole. I mean there would be a moment in the start of the story you'd think he'd be charming then he'd go open his mouth. You want to junk punch him. Yet, you love to hate him. And you just gotta wonder how this contract will all play out with him at the helm. You may read the synopsis of the story and think, "I've read this trope before." Or this can be your favorite type of storyline. You are in for a very pleasant surprise. Yes, Richard and Katy work together and the contract is the means to an end for both. They will both get what they want and walk away unscathed. Or maybe not... Although Ms Moreland tells the story from a dual POV, it's Richard's POV that keeps you turning the pages to see how this unfolds. Our heroine, Katy isn't what she seems and helps Richard see the world from a different view point. His character is a study in what nurture develops us into from children to the people we associate with as adults. Can we become 'better humans'? Possibly. Richard's change isn't "Boom, now he's a teddy bear." So stealthy is the change, it's surreptitious to him. For me, to really hate a character and actually root for his HEA proves what a talented writer Ms Moreland is. This book will bring out the feels. Sometimes stabby, sometimes sad, sometimes happy. The cast of supporting characters bring the Hero and heroine through their journey that can't help loving (most) of them. If you never read Melanie Moreland's novels, I highly recommend this novel. 5 out of 5 'love to hate him' stars.

    A complete story

    Yay! An author that tells a complete story, start to finish! This story has decent character development, fairly realistic dialogue, a plausible plot, and best of all the ending is satisfying. I recommend this for readers like myself who are turned off by needless drama, fake obstacles that derail the couple and cliffhangers or stupid endings. There are some secondary characters that annoy but all in all this is a pleasurable read.

    The Contract

    Beautiful thought provoking love story. It's not very often I find myself weeping while reading a book. Sad movies, puppies dying, social injustice...yes, but not while enjoying a good read. For the past few years I have battled crappy health with reduced mobility, which forced me into early retirement after a very happy, successful career. Having lots of time and wanting to distract myself from pain, I read, A LOT. Several thousand books and counting. I rate and review only the ones I feel have moved me or I have found the Author to be original and strong. I have left negative reviews for poor spelling, editing/formatting. I enjoyed this novel and highly recommend the book to others. PS Make sure you keep the Kleenex tissues handy.
