Social media has put me in touch with Shirley Jump and I have since learned that she has an enviable shoe collection and far too much energy, doing desperately unhealthy things like running (and hopefully not in some of those high heels I've seen!). Shirley also offers online writing courses for aspiring authors as well as established writers so when I was offered ARCs for the McKenna Brothers series, I jumped (no pun intended) at the opportunity.

Through no fault of the

I found 'One Day to Find a Husband' hard to get into initially as the hero Finn Mckenna was really hard to accept as a hero, he seemed much to business like and not very likeable. How wrong can first impressions be, Finn turned out to be a well rounded character who had shut himself off from the world of Love due to heartbreak. Something I am sure many can relate. His business is in serious trouble and agrees to enter a marriage of convenience in order to get on board with WW CEO Ellie. She gets ...more

Ellie and Finn get married as a purely business arrangement; Ellie gets a husband to help with her adoption proceedings and Finn get a chance to jump-start his failing business. So far so good…

I’m really on the fence with this book; there are parts that I like and parts that has me scratching my head saying ‘Seriously’?

I think my problem is not the story or the writing but Finn himself and that's a first! For a creative guy who is an architect he is rather somber and dull. I usually like uptight

Good book. Both Ellie and Finn have issues with relationships. Ellie needs a husband in order to adopt Jiao, and Finn needs to partner his company with Ellie's for a new project. Both of them are attracted, but each one tends to back away from the feelings for fear that they may not last. Finn also has a reputation of being ruthless in acquiring new businesses and Ellie is afraid that he might be using her. I really liked Finn when he was in nice guy mode, as he was a really romantic and fun guy ...more

Lo encontré muy soso,para ser un Harlequin,rescato que al fin no es el típico millonario y la pobre virgen, pero no le encontré ni química y mucho menos pasión.

Fun read story about promises made to friends and a love for a child. Throw in an "must be married" adoption rule and you have a pretty funny story about two strangers who have no clue how to do relationships. Must read!

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Shirley Jump spends her days writing romance and women’s fiction to feed her shoe addiction and avoid cleaning the toilets. She cleverly finds writing time by feeding her kids junk food, allowing them to dress in the clothes they find on the floor and encouraging the dogs to double as vacuum cleaners.

Look for her Sweet and Savory Romance series, inc
