I thought it was a fun concept - two psych “experts” with opposite views of what makes love/marriage work try to create the most “matches.”

But what made it interesting was that the characters had a past history (which is a theme I enjoy and even write myself). I was pleased to find that history included an extra complication that Jonathan was not aware of for all those years (which I hesitate to mention so as not to spoil the book for someone else). But it WAS my favorite part of the storyline,

A little predictable, but still a funny and engaging book. The premise revolves around two ex-lovers who are both psychologists, Taylor and Jonathan. They each have their own idea as to how couples stay together, one thinks it's the sexual chemistry and one thinks it's compatibility. They decide to put their theories to test, and get 40 couples to live together for one month, half put together by a survey created by Taylor, and half put together by a survey created by Jonathan. Whoever has the m ...more

Je mehr Gemeinsamkeiten ein Paar hat, desto besser läuft die Beziehung. Davon ist Paartherapeutin Taylor McGuire überzeugt. Ihr Ex-Lover, der erfolgreiche Psychologe Jonathan Kirby, behauptet mal wieder genau das Gegenteil – nur auf viel Sex kommt es an. In einer Talkshow fordert er Taylor heraus, um zu beweisen, dass er recht hat: Für eine Realityshow sollen Singles aus der kleinen Stadt Marriageville einen Monat lang zusammenleben. Dann wird sich schnell zeigen, was wicht

This was one of Mallery's early mainstream books and I really enjoyed it. I liken Mallery to a nice cool pool on a hot day or a cup of hot chocolate in the middle of a snow storm. Her books are funny and light, but the characters don’t go through the drama that other authors make their characters go though within the genre.

Mallery does have some patterns that I’ve noticed, simply because I’ve read a lot of her books. One of the main characters in this book was a single parent who hadn’t shared p

Such a cute and fun story! I had a hard time putting the book down when I had to adult, but there were no difficulties slipping back into the story. And Ms Mallerys writing is so smooth. I just love it! The reason I didn't give Married For A Month a higher rating is because this isn't one of my favorite tropes and I didn't like the characters reasoning to justify it. That said, I would still recommend this book. Like I said, it is fun. No regrets.
