descriptionYet another book that I am struggling to decide a rating on. I enjoyed it overall, but it didn't exactly blow me away...sigh. I'll start with the issues I had first (bad news always first, right?).

One, this book was incredibly LONG and so frigging WORDY. It took forever for these two to even officially meet (40%??) and there were so many things that could have been trimmed from the story to speed things up. Not to mention the repetitive use of HIM, HER, SHE. I get it, they didn't want to name t

This was an ARC that I received, and I’m going to be brutally honest. This was a tough read. And not “tough” as in “emotionally gutting,” but “tough” as in, “My god. We’re only at 27%. Must I go on?”

We’ve all seen this storyline before: girl escapes abusive boyfriend and runs into the arms of a gazillionaire playboy who isn’t looking for love but finds it in the most unexpected way. The storytelling here, unfortunately, falls flat. It’s as if the author was trying to start a fire with wet kindl

I am a sucker for a good fake romance and I really loved this story. Madison Quinn does an amazing job of really giving depth to her characters and I adored both Kenzie and Nicholas. If I were just reviewing the story then this would be be a 5 star review from me....BUT the ARC that I received is in desperate need of a proofreader and an editor.

It appears this is Ms. Quinn's debut novel and it is an amazing start to what I hope is a successful writing career but there were too many repetitive m

I’m going to be brief about On His Terms, mainly because I’ve just shut the Kindle on a cliffhanger… I dislike cliffhangers so very much. You can take a thread and weave it through every single story in a series, for me that is how you grab my attention to continue, not hold the ending hostage. But… that’s my style of reading and not everyone else’s. That’s not said to be mean, simply a fact for me.

I gave On His Terms a 3.5 stars rating on my blog, for the outside spo

An amazing compelling read and I love it. Both characters are broken from past trauma and will need each other to overcome and move on. This 1st book is the introduction into their current lives and a glimpse into their past. It is will written, consistent, and well-developed. It is a story that hooked me from page one until the end and I cannot wait to complete Kenzie and Nicholas’s story in the next book.

Madison Quinn has created this wonderful world where we meet Kenzie & Nicholas, the "un-couple". He needs to appear more family-friendly to the media & she takes the job as his "girlfriend". What starts off as an arrangement for appearances sake, slowly starts to build to a slow burn. They both start fantasizing about each other, but neither will act on it, as it goes against the arrangement rules. Nicholas & Kenzie both have trauma in their backstories, which keeps them both at arms ...more

I loved this book! Amazing how two people who had been hurt so terribly by others could enter into an arrangement and find their perfect match. Loved how they kept thinking the same things but wouldn’t admit their feelings for one another. The story has just the perfect balance of independent female lead and want to take care of her male lead that they balance out perfectly. Just loved Nichols and Kenzie and how their relationship slowly blossomed. Can’t wait to read the sequel. I strongly recom ...more
Sissy's Romance Book Review
On His Terms by Madison Quinn is book One in The Arrangement Series. This is the story of Nicholas and Kenzie.
Nicholas needs a pretend girlfriend that will build a image he is trying to make after it has taken a hit. Not really trusting anymore after being burned he thinks this business arrangement will work out great to set the tone he wants to display.
Kenzie has been working to jobs along with trying to keep herself going after escaping a very abusive relationship. When she gets this chance

Initially heartbreaking, the book set me off on a journey that I wasn't expecting. Kenzie is a survivor. She's strong and willing to move forward with her life even after such pain might have made her a victim for life. I loved that about her. The author set up an interesting premise that took over the plotline and I thoroughly enjoyed reading the book until it abruptly ended without notice. I was totally invested in this story but I was just dumbfounded at the way the author ended this book. Th ...more

An amazing tail of two strangers burned by love that are starting to learn to trust again! Both Nicholas and Kenzie have tragic back stories before either were burned by love. They both have a lot of hurdles to jump over in order to heal, but as their story progresses you can tell they are slowly lowering their walls to each other. This is Madison Quinn's first published novel and she did an amazing job bringing these characters to life! I can't wait until the next book in the story is released! ...more

On His terms was amazing! WOW!! Hands down the best book I read in awhile.
Nicholas & Kenzie's characters are perfect. The are in a "business" relationship that was working great until things changed. They both has issues from their past they are dealing with alone. They are both different but yet so alike.

I loved the plot of this book!! The author wrote this in such a brilliant way, that you fell your right there in the story. I was drawn to each character,each played an important part. and

Terrific!!
Terrific engaging story that follows Kenzie and Nicholas. She is working 2 jobs to stay afloat while he is a billionaire CEO they both have suffered in the past and are both trepidatious of relationships. This book had me turning page after page just to see what happens next. It does end on a cliffhanger but that just makes the anticipation of book 2 so sweet.
I reached an ARC from Booksprout and am volunteering my review.

I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

This is outside of my usual genre, but I found I finished it very quickly. I enjoyed the premise of the story - where the main characters meet thanks to an agency that sets up dates for high profile people in the media. I enjoyed Kenzie's growth from a past of physical abuse to being an independent woman. The chemistry between the two characters is also great leaving you wanting to see them together - but be warned it ends on a cli

The 2 Characters Nicholas & Kenzie are the perfect match but they keep their distance between each other even though they have a hard time doing so as it’s only meant to be a business deal to help each other out! But with everything happening they start falling for each other even tough not one of them makes their feelings noticed.
They share almost the same childhood pain but neither of them feel to share it with one another and that makes the st
