On a Wednesday afternoon, I ask Trevor Bentley to marry me. He might be the most arrogant, obnoxious man I know, but I need him to be my husband for a year.

There are reasons.

He's not going to be a real husband. Just part-time. Yes, I have to live with him. And, okay, I also have to share his bed. And, sure, he's the sexiest and most exciting thing to ever happen to my

Liked this book a lot!
So real, so freaking real. Normal people with normal struggles; and even if it started a bit bizarre (marriage arrangement), it was still plausible.

My main and only complain - Pop... WTF??? WTFF? Pop, are you for real, man??!
Weird family dynamic, but the sisters were ok. The heroine was my favourite of all.

Strong, loyal heroine. Some may say she was a bit selfish, but I found her very cool. I wasn't a big fan of the hero at the beginning, but he won me over with

Working for family can really suck. Especially when you are treated less than because you are a woman, have a grandfather who holds all the power, and deep down you still want his approval and recognition for all of the success you have brought the company.

Yup, Family Businesses can be difficult. Melissa Greyson has been dealing with this type of situation since forever.

I enjoyed it. I like the hero. I like the heroine. I like the hero’s parents but can say the same about the heroine's family. I definitely didn’t like the pop.
I didn’t like the last misunderstanding and I am cutting stars for that. Overall it was good.
I like the new definition of Smug and Obnoxious. :P

Now that I have read all of the "Trophy Husband" series I am not even sure if I could pick a favorite.
All three were equally delightful and yes I did read this series out of order. So technically this is the first one but I didn't read it until after I finished the other two .
These are such happy and heartwarming romances and also very effortless to read.
I am really enjoying this authors books in general and I find that Noelle Adam's writing has this easy sort of flow to it. I reall

What I didn't liked.
~Hero and heroine's relationship, I didn't find any chemistry or connection between them.
~Pop, WTF is wrong with this old man?
~Heroine's sisters, the couple chapters I've read, they were mooching off their pop's money, only the heroine worked for her money. Shame on them.
~If the heroine hadn't proposed to the hero,I felt like he wouldn't have gone after her. They have known each other for 5 years. Sorry but I like my heroes to make a mo

Oh my gawd, I loved this story!!! It was everything I enjoy in a marriage of convenience book!

In order to save her job with her grandfather’s company, Melissa must come up with a husband. Fast. After a meeting with her sisters, she has the perfect candidate. Trevor Bentley is an obnoxious, smug so-and-so and the one man that grates on her grandfather’s nerves more than anyone else. Unfortunately, she doesn’t like Trevor one bit and the feeling is mutual. With a lucrative “business” proposal in h

3 Stars!

This one was a read I got through pretty fast.

In the end it was just an OK story.

I had a hard time believing this couple. I didn't feel any chemistry between them and that only made their deal more believable that it was indeed only a deal. I don't think they would have ever hooked up if she didn't need someone to secure her place at her grandfathers company. Speaking of her grandfather, what a dick. I didn't like him one bit and my feelings never changed by the end of the book.

5 sweet stars!!! I love the heroine and eventually the hero... In a world full of insta love between manwhores and virgins its refreshing to read a romantic book that has a proper story line... The fake marriage must be cliche but the build up of their relationship is relatable and very moving... I can't wait for the next book Hunter sounds like a trophy husband :) ...more

After reading Alex's review I knew I had to read this book. Right now my life is a chaos so I need to read something "normal". Something not over the top. Something just "something". This book was that. We saw something real, real struggles, real people, real fears. And I liked that a lot.

It starts with a pretend marriage. I know it was silly. Heroine Melissa's grandfather forces her to marry someone in exchange for her job. She worked really hard for that job and doesn't want it to go wast

4.5 stars!

I loved this! The story didn't drag and did not have non essential stuff added just to make the book long. Just like the heroine in this story, I don't like all the wordage! 😊 Who doesn't like a strong and independent heroine, right?

The Hero was labelled an arrogant jerk but that's just the surface. He was a sweet guy who earned a lot of brownie points from me on how much he loved his parents. Here's for you, Trevor 😘

The grandfather is one mean hearted man. I just don't understand him.

This is the second Noelle Adams book which I have read and it was just what I wanted! A quick, safe, fun, sexy and emotional read.

The fake marriage/marriage of convenience plot, as always was ridiculous but I predictably liked it!

The characters were great! They felt real? We got to see a strong, independent, successful woman in Melissa, and she was really likeable. She had a great relationship with her sisters, and had friends, which is important to me. Trevor was a great character too-I won’t

Part-Time Husband by Noelle Adams is the first in her new series Trophy Husbands, and a fun and sexy enemies to lovers/marriage of convenience romance.

Melissa Greyson has worked hard to make her way into a high position at her family company and nothing is going to derail her plan to stay there, not even a marriage demand from her grandfather. He threatens to cut off the money that her sisters rely on and take away her job and she knows these are not idle threats. Thinking quickly on her feet, s

Loved this book and enjoyed every minute of it. This is quite simply a delightful read, a page turner, and I'm rushing into book two today.

We have twenty-eight years old Melissa Greyson who helps to run the family business that her grandfather (known as Pop) started fifty-years ago. She has two sisters and their parents died many years ago leaving their only relative, Pop, to raise the girls.

Going into this book, I was torn. I liked the premise. But, at the same time, I wasn't sure if I totally bought into the idea that it would work.

Trevor and Melissa are both successful, she works for her grandfather at the family business, and he works in advertising. There is an enemies to lovers element here, at least on Melissa's side...although I thought it was pretty obvious from the beginning that Trevor was in love with Melissa...or at least he was supposed to be, from one meeting.

I enjoyed this story. I liked that we didn't get Trevor's POV. I've decided I prefer stories nowadays that are not dual POV.

This was a sweet love story. Nothing original and very predictable but I enjoyed it.

I'm looking forward to the next two books about her sisters.

I was absolutely thrilled to receive book one, Trophy Husbands. After getting married, Trevor Bentley he seemed so completely different. He was mad, and arrogant men. Living with this awful mean man. I completely loved and adored this marvellous book!!

**My thanks to the author for providing me with a free copy for an honest review**

This is quite a sweet read and you know with this author that we will always get a happy ending, no matter what the characters go through.

Melissa is a strong woman, but she will not be bullied out of her job by her grandfather. She has to marry in order for her to keep her job, so she knows the only person that she cannot stand is Trevor, so she asks him to marry her for a year.

Both keep their feelings close as nei

Is it me or Noelle Adam's books have become less angsty than they were in her first publications? The book wasn't big on angst, but it won me over on the fake marriage part. It was everything I expected and on the plus side, it had good main characters. I liked Melissa's sisters, but I wasn't a big fan of her grandfather. Trevor's family was much better and maybe we will see more of them.

We don't get Trevor's point of view, but most of the time it was easy to understand what he was thinking and
Wow this was really sweet. I liked both Trevor and Melissa, I loved their relationship and their chemistry, it seemed so natural, so genuine. However, and I can't believe I'm complaining about this, there was one too many sex scene in the book. Some of the sexy times were hot, but the hero's tendency to talk throughout the act felt really jarring and kinda silly. The stuff he said, I just couldn't take it seriously. Also Pop was dick. Those are my biggest misgivings with this book. Otherwise, tw ...more

Melissa Greyson has only wanted one thing out of her life and that was to work at her grandfather’s company. After seven summers of interning, he finally gives Melissa the full time job she worked so hard to obtain. Six months ago, Melissa advanced to an executive position. She works hard, often working fifty to sixty hours a week, but she believes in what she does even though half the staff hates her and thinks she is cold and heartless. Her grandfather though, wants more for her and is about t ...more

I have to admit I am a big fan of the fake marriage storyline as they always end up in an HEA which I am so totally about and more often than not, the pair wanted one another but couldn't get the guts or man up and tell the other how they really feel, so they make this whole fake marriage contract only to end up together for realsies. Normally the fake marriage stories are the guy asking the girl, but in this case, it is gender reversed. Melissa has always wanted to take over her families compan ...more

This book is just about perfect for me. Great dialogue, vivid lovable characters, believable conflict, steamy sex scene, strong plot and so so enjoyable.

Can i describe the book as delicious? Well, it is absolutely delicious. I gobble the whole thing up in one sitting and as soon as I was done, before I write this review, I went and bought 3 more books by Ms Adams. She is my one-click, no-think, absolute-comfort author.

5 stars! only for Trevor.

I really, really enjoyed this one. I LOVED Trevor so much!! He was the perfect mix of sarcasm and sweetness. I melted reading about his parents and how he supported them and loved them. Idk why but reading about a main character devoted to his/her family always makes my heart sing and fill me with love. I think fucked up Heroes are a bit overrated (not that I am complaining).
