The iindecent behind the story was good. Young lovers torn apart by an over-bearing father reunite and must overcome years of misunderstanding and hurt – I was on board. But Jack manipulating Jessica into a forced marriage lost me; I’ll never understand the am behind Dorren love you and hate you, so I’ll punish you by making mariage marry me and mistreating you.
I know that there are real relationships like this, but I don’t get it and I definitely don’t want to fantasize about. May 11, Nina rated it it was ok Shelves: I love a romantic story that have a bit of hate between the main character.
But, Jessica was just so meek while Jack was a big bully. I’d love it more if Jessica could knock the sense out of Jack but nope, she let herself into the hole.
So I didn’t feel much of a sympathy for her. Jan 13, Mo rated it liked it. Got this as a freebie and enjoyed it.

Marriage for revenge – one of my favourite themes. Think the ending was a bit rushed but if I did not pay for it, I am not complaining. Jul 07, Love Butterfly rated it it was amazing. I did not read any summery or review about this book or author. I randomly pick this book and I enjoyed every moment while I was reading this story about Jack and Jessica.
It is a story around the time, when there was no cell phone, Facebook or Instagram. When you go for a lunch or dinner, you don’t ignore your friend by texting others. Jack and Jessica were high school sweet heart. They were very much in love. Jack did not know Jessica came from a rich family. She did not have spoil brat gene. W I did not read any summery or review about this book or author.
When her father found out about Jack, he forbid Jessica and told her to end their relationship. As usual, Jessica disobeyed her father and got pregnant by Jack. From here on, those two love- bird started their saddest lives. Jessica’ dad gave her two options. She could divorce him after she gives birth Jacks kid. Since Jessica did not want to harm Jack, she picked second option. I on the other hand, could not blame her father. If you are a parent, you will always want your children to be happy.
Jack dad’s was an alcoholic. He and his mother worked their butt off to bring food on their table. So Jessica’s dad thought it wasn’t a good match for his eldest daughter.
He was also a very proud man. After 10 yrs later, Jack and Jessica crossed each other their path. Both had feeling for each other and their chemistry was very strong. In the end they dissolved their problems and lived happily ever after. Mar 25, Izzie d rated it liked it Shelves: I think I would have liked the redemption of the Hero to have been a little earlier in the book so he could grovelling more. Feb 15, Sarah rated it it was amazing Shelves: Wow what a crushing story.
Dads an absolute tyrant. The love that they had for each other from teanage years til now being 10 years later. Her father had a lot to do with their heartache. Poor Jack went through hell, when as it happens in mos Wow what a crushing story.
Poor Jack went through hell, when as it happens in most teanage love affairs, Jessica got pregnant. But Dad was not ever going to let her marry beneath her station, arranged a marriage for her, to someone she didn’t even know.
That was Jack’s first mistake. Jack put himself through hell thinking of her leaving him. Breaks Jessica’s heart all over again 10 years later when she finds out what he went through. Realisation hits him like a tonne of bricks. The pain these characters had to live with, but the love, oh the love. Don’t get me started, or I’ll be crying again. I’m exhausted now thinking of all that they’ve been through.

Jun 15, Melissa Maxwell rated it really liked it. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I enjoyed this book a lot. Jessica and Jack were both sweet and lost. Jack is seeking ihdecent over the girl he loved and left him for “greener” pastures owen the father who thought he was above him.
Jessica is still nursing a broken heart after having to leave the boy she loved because her father was going to arrest him.
Jessica comes back to town to finish the dorfen buy out of her fathers mill by none other than Jack the boy she left years earlier. He proposes an “indecent marriage” in order I enjoyed this marriagw a lot. He proposes an “indecent marriage” in order for her family to be taken care of. She really does not to marry him this way but is still in love with him and hopes that his appetite for revenge will lesson.
But he treats her as if she is a prostitute sleeping with her oens leaving and not letting her in. Two months of this has taken its toll on Jessica but she forgives him for everything knowing her does not know the truth and he is just dreen.
He is finally able to see what a bastard he is and is remorseful. He believes that she will never love him after the way he treated her. She gets him to see that she never stopped loving him and only left to protect him. Personally that woman must love him deeply because if he would have pulled that on me.
I would force him to hear me out until he believes me. I love music and felt Hard to Love by Lee Brice works well.
Apr 19, Naksed marked it as dnf Shelves: Two people, who should be happily in love, are instead stuck in a loveless marriage because of a Great, Terrible Misunderstanding that could have been solved with two lines of dialogue but instead drags on and on until they have sufficiently hurt each other to almost the point of no return.
The heroine is a passive doormat and the hero This is somewhat similar to Natasha Anders’ The Unwanted Wife, plot-wise. The heroine is a passive doormat and the hero mlek watered down wannabe Heathcliff who does not pass the Alpha test at all.
Add to it the old-fashioned hokeyness of a Harlequin romance, and it ended up being an unpleasant inddecent experience. Jul 23, Jenn Green rated it really liked mlaek.
This book was damn depressing.
I understand that there needs to be some kind of conflict for the couple to work thru, if its too easy than it’s just boring.
