Publisher Description

Addison:

It might be the craziest thing I've ever done.

Besides trusting my ex when he said he had birth control covered.

But I can't afford my son's medication anymore and it seems like a good enough plan.

Marry the nurse, with the incredible healthcare who just so happens to need to get married.

That is, until I start falling for her…

Nova:

When Addison and her son walk into my ER, the last thing I expected was to see them again.

She was beautiful, but I knew better than to hit on patients.

Until my green card is expiring and the only way to stay is to get married, and quick.

So when my friend introduces me to Addison at a party,

joking about us getting married,

we both can't help but think it's a good idea.

That is, until I start to fall for her and her son…

Will they be able to get married and keep their feelings at bay or will their marriage of convenience be less than convenient?

Nova & Addison

When Nova and Addison meet in the emergency room, they are strangers. Addison, who is there with her son, is at her wit's end since her son requires surgery and she does not have health insurance. Nova, a nurse at the emergency room, is a Canadian immigrant in America on a work visa that is about to expire. When both women meet for the second time at a common friend's wedding, the concept of a "marriage of convenience" is presented by their mutual acquaintance. This partially solves both women's problems: Nova may stay in the nation while she waits for citizenship, and Addison can acquire health insurance.

This story piqued my interest because I appreciate interracial love stories. I commend the author, who is not a person of color, for being genuine to cultural nuances, particularly the variances in our hair. That is such a crucial aspect of a Black woman's life and a subject of great significance. The author's description of the interaction between the two MCs in the passage where Addie makes a concerted effort to learn how to braid Nova's hair--an act of intimacy and love--was fantastic. The true acknowledgment of Nova's race, however, ended there. I would have liked to hear more about the contrast in their skin tones, especially during their romantic parts. Perhaps having both MCs comment on how lovely the mix was. But there was a lot of talk about hair, and Addison went from being a bleached blond (at the start of the novel) to a natural blond (in the middle of the story). The interplay between doctors and nurses was also a good addition, if overblown.

I really want to give this story a 4 or 5, because it was fantastic. But I'm only giving it a 3 since there were so many editing errors and inconsistencies that it took me far longer to read than it should have.

The author clearly did their homework and crafted a terrific story, but the beauty of the story was lost in all of the necessary modifications.

I received an advance review copy for free, and I am leaving this review voluntarily.
