This was a fun fake/real relationship light second chance romance.

I say light because Chloe and Austin knew each other in the past but didn't date. With a history to build on, I could get behind a quick wedding to acheive their mutual goals. The history also allowed me to believe they could fall in love almost as quickly.

There are lots of fun antics and likeable characters throughout the story. The pacing moves along at a consistent quick pace. An easy enjoyable read.

A few typos, but that's m

Renting His Heart #5 - Heartwarming and funny! Another wonderful addition to one of my favorite series of clean, realistic romance series. While I'm not a fan of these fake marriages that's so common nowadays, Ms. Hardy does a good job with this theme; the characters are actually in love to begin with, but must get the kinks worked out. There's plenty of the series characters popping in and out, and some of my favorite character locations play their parts. A well thought out, realistic and enter ...more

Made for each other

This was a made for each other romance. It was as if their whole lives was leading up to this moment. True, it was a spur of the moment decision to get married to avoid their matchmaking mamas, but for years they had liked each other although never talking about it. After they got married it just felt right. Of course their were lots of bumps in the road since they skipped the whole dating part and that fact that they lived on different continents also was an impediment.

Renting His Heart is a sweet, clean, fun, short romance. I really liked Chloe and Austin. They had been friends for years and each secretly crushed on the other so their "marriage" was not that big a stretch. The fun in the plot comes when they realize they live on different continents, but would really like to see if they can make the marriage work. They should not have skipped the dating, getting to know you, etc. This is a delightfully well written book and the characters are great.

This is a fun, heartwarming story that is easy to follow. I really liked that they were already friends and decided to help each other by choosing to marry even though the marriage was intended to stay fake. Returning to Cottonwood Ranch in Idaho was fun and I love the interaction between the characters from all walks of life, the descriptions are marvelous and bring everything to life!

I received an free copy of this book and happily chose to review it!

Renting His Heart is the fifth book in the Cottonwood Ranch series, I really enjoyed returning to Idaho and becoming reacquainted with the characters from the other books in the series. Austin Quinn and Chloe Parker are great characters in this fun story of a real and a pretend wedding. It is a nice and clean romance with a cute cover. I received an advance copy of this book and I willingly chose to write an honest review.

Renting His Heart is a well-written clean romance that I enjoyed reading. Chloe had had a crush on her brother's best friend Austin since she was a young girl. Austin kept up with Chloe's career in Paris through the internet. They meet after years apart on the way to a wedding. Austin and Chloe are both likable characters. Jaclyn Hardy does a wonderful job of writing the tale of their romance. I recommend this to clean, wholesome romance readers.

Marriage of convenience

Chloe and Austin rush into a quick marriage to save themselves from family situations. When a fake marriage turns into real love there are lots of things to figure out. There are some twists and turns and unexpected surprises that lead to a fun and happy ending.

I love Cottonwood, Idaho! It was fun going back there again and visiting characters from the series. Chloe and Austin are such a cute couple. There were many things I liked about them, but I don't want to give any spoilers. This is a fun sweet story, that if you've enjoyed any of the other books in this story you will enjoy it as well.

I really enjoyed this book! I fell in love with the characters and their witty interactions:) I also love horses and wide open spaces, so I loved the setting in rural Idaho as well! I highly recommend this book and author! Happy reading!

Loved the book. Apparently, since I am looking at the title now, this is book five. Now I get to backtrack.

****lots of fragmented sentences but it didn't take away from the story.
Feb 25, 2019 rated it really liked it
A lovely and enjoyable clean romance. My only gripe was a slight lack of character development which meant that a lot of the decisions just felt forced and didn't sit right. But as a light and fairly quick read, it was pleasant and well written.

(Cottonwood Ranch) 5. Renting His Heart

Young people looking for happiness, to only get interference from really interested parents. Trying to get their attention, instead helping them.
