**3.5 - I needed a better epilogue stars **

This was cute, hot and low on angst - just what I was looking for. Slight OW drama,(H's crazy ex showed to to cause trouble but didn't cause any relationship problems at all) There was absolutely no cheating.

My only "beef" with the story was the fact that you had to sign up to get an extended epilogue (the fact that there wasn't an epilogue would make that just an epilogue, not extended epilogue) I wish authors would just put the epilogue in the book an

3.5 - 3.75 Cute Stars

I read this one before reading A Perfect Gentleman, which means I read the second book first. But I think I like this one much better. Again, you have to suspend belief that some rockin hot guy can't find a great girl without a matchmaker. And that he's more interested in a compatible mate than some hot babe on his arm. But that being said, this one had cute little zingers and one liners that made it funnier than the first one for me.

I liked the chemistry between the two cha

Super short story with zero substance. Loved the slap down of the hero's ex though.

Easy, short, sweet, hot hot hot.

Joshua is the kind of man that every woman wants to have, looking like a bad boy and having trouble written all over him, but inside, oooh jesus crust, inside. He's sweet, sweeter than honey, and all he wants is having a woman to worship, a woman to make a family with, a woman to love, forever.

It's short, a very quick read, great if you're looking for something easy to read in an hour.

The only "bad" thing is that the book ends abruptly, a lot of things are left

These individuals are looking for marriage not dating and their family and friends pick thier soon to be spouse.

A Nice Boy is the second book in exchange the arranged marriage series. This is another story with a strong alpha.
Caitlyn was promised a nice boy, but the man chosen to marry her doesn't appear to fit the bill. He's inked, ripped and all man. He was hand picked for her and supposed to be her perfect match. Can looks be deceiving? Maybe the right guy isn't the one you expect.

4 stars out of 5.

This was a really good fun book. It's not your typical bad boy romance it's brilliant and is very fun. There is a man who comes across as tough and hard but is really a sweetie who's looking to settle down. Ans a woman who hasnt had a bf for a long time. With a little help from their meddling friends they both manage to find each other. Their connection is electric it's really amazing to read. This is a great book I would have loved to have read more . I would definitely recommend this

A Nice Boy is a great book about 2 people who are brought together by Raven who is a matchmaking wonder.

Caitlyn has her life all planned out, or I should say she thought she did. The only thing that she didn't have going for her was luck in the man department. After a lousy relationship comes to an end she realizes that what she really wants is to settle down with a man who loves her, wants to make her happy and have a kids. She talks to her friend from work about putting an application in for a

I really enjoyed this book but I couldn’t stop the one question that kept going through my head: where were they going to live? Joshua lived quite far away from Caitlyn. Far enough away that they each had to travel for two days to see each other. So once they got married who was going to move? I really liked Joshua, I wanted to steal him away and keep him for myself. Caitlyn and Joshua were perfect for one another, I loved that Caitlyn had Joshua’s back when his ex turned up to cause trouble. As ...more

First off, I just want to say that I liked this book better than the first book. That’s because I actually got what I was asking for! There was more depth in the story and behind the characters and it made the story better right off to start with. There was more details that made the characters more interesting and that was very pleasing. It wasn’t just a story about people getting married and having hot sex.

This was a story about not judging what someone looks like at first to see who they are

Oh boy this book got you right from the beginning! When Caitlyn can't find a decent guy she lets her friend set her up for an arranged marriage but Caitlyn has issues with how she looks so she can't imagine who they set her up with. When she is introduced to Josh she figures someone must be playing a cruel joke.
Josh can't help but pick crazy women his last one trashed his house and blamed him, so when his boss says she is gonna find him one he figured how bad could it be? When Josh meets Caitly

Great story, fun, funny, fast paced and steamy. Josh's latest crazy ex has is adopted mother going to Raven Swaan to find him a wife. Josh has no objections to setting down, but a professional march maker, and Maureen choosing his wife, not so sure about that.

Another hit in the Arranged Marriage series!!

I read a mail bride story every now and then, but they are all kind of the same. This series is totally gonna knock your socks off. It is modern, sassy and sexy!! Caitlyn also reads mail brides stories. She is tired of being lonely. She has a good job, nice little family (grandparents) but she is missing a nice boy. Josh on the other side is tired of crazy exes and wants to settle down. He is a sexy tattoed bartender who helps out his friend and mothe

A Nice Boy by Rocklyn Ryder is book number two in the Arranged Marriage series. This is Caitlyn and Joshua's story. In this sexy tale of judgment and the things that we might miss out on when we judge a person by their looks before we get to know them was a good read and was able to hold my attention till the very end.

This sexy tale is about judgment and all that we can miss out on when we judge people based on looks, before getting to know them. Caitlyn thinks Josh doesn't look like husband material...he looks more like a parole officer's worst nightmare. Josh thinks Caity is sweet and innocent. Once these two meet and chemistries collide, they'll see exactly who the other is and what they really want.

After his ex, Nicole, shows her true colors and trashes his rental, Josh spends the night in jail on trumped

Book 2 of the Arranged Marriage Series and my favorite thus far!! Josh and Caitlyn have instant chemistry, but will a past relationship jeopardize it? These characters, as well as their friends and families are well written, interesting, and a fun bunch! I am so glad I picked this book up with my KU subscription, I've found a new author that I really enjoy.

Short but sweet!

I love these books so far! Nothing hotter then a sweet guy with muscles and tattoos. Ravens arranged marriages actually sound awesome if I was 10 years younger and single. Everyone should have a chance to meet there sole mate. Great concept!

5 stars for Storyline, but 2 stars for content. I'm not pleased with the lack of communication with this skerries so far. The H and h tell "at us" and retell A LOT but why don't we get to experience it. Ex) why do you hear about the excitement of the first kiss AFTER the fact?! Ugh!

I received this book willingly from the author.

The book opens with Joshua and the aftermath of his last bad mistake aka girlfriend Nikki. To read the descriptions on Joshua you would think he was a thug, body guard, motor cycle riding, killing machine. But underneath all of that ink, he has a soft side. Soft enough to let his adopted mother Maury arrange a marriage for him.

Then we have Caitlyn. The only romance she gets lately is on her e-reader and it's pretty steamy so it can't be real. Caitl

This book was a quick fun read.
Josh is a nice boy who's looks don't match and Caityn's uncertain of his intentions. The pair had chemistry from the moment they met and that heat translated onto the pages.
I had high expectations after the initial book in this series, and while this one was good, it didn’t have the same magnetism as the first. The book starts with more backstory and didn’t offer up as much in the way of conflict. I did like Josh’s character and his rush in all things Caitlyn, fr

I voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Reader Copy of this book.

The woman is psycho, and now I am left cleaning up after her. She not only had me in jail overnight, but I am getting stuck with a bill from the contractors to fix this whole mess. I..AM..DONE..with all of this. Poor Josh, this girl who he helped out of a relationship that was abusive goes and trashes one of his rental properties. all because he doesn't want to date this bat-stuff crazy girl.

In real life I’m just your ordinary woman. At the day job 8 hours a day that often stretches to 10. Coming home to a couple of cats that didn’t notice I was gone. Sometimes I have a boyfriend. Sometimes I don’t.

Unless we're talking book boyfriends? I ALWAYS have one of those! Sometimes I juggle two or three, as long as they don't find out about each other, right? Or maybe it just gets better when
