Three years into a five-year marriage of convenience, Jenn finds herself wanting something she never thought she'd want from her laid-back, ex-military husband. Sex--as a much-needed release of tension from her high-stress job. But weekly sex with Nick, despite their careful parameters, is likely to get messy eventually.
Ever since her father walked out on her as a child, Jenn knows never to assume the people she loves will stick around, so she's not about to trust Nick with her heart. She vows to stay strong, no matter how much intimacy develops between them in bed.
But what starts as a tension-reliever soon becomes so much more, until it threatens both their practical arrangement and the heart Jenn has worked so hard to keep safe.

Another good one!
The title of this books is pretty self explanatory. I wanted to read this book because I'm always intrigued about this type of story line. I'm curious how the author explains the need for a marriage of convenience and ofcourse I love to read how it always ends up in true love.
Noelle Adams did a very good job in this short novella. She took two totally opposite people who probably never would have ever considered they were compatible and take a chance on anything real. Having this marriage of convenience forces them to spend the time together and work around each other's personalities. Jen and Nick were the perfect compliment to each other. Jen was very driven and focused. Nick more laid back and calm. They each brought to the other exactly what they needed in their lives. When they decided they both could benefit from adding sexual release to the marriage, they truly learned how capitable they truly are.
I really enjoyed this novella. I'm a fan of Noelle Adams writing and I love the characters she dreams up. She has a way of writing the characters and their interactions in a way that I'm always rooting for them. Two thumbs up to Marriage By Contract and I can't wait for more by Noelle Adams!
