Sarah Keating was sure she’d be married by 30. Husband, kids, the kick-ass career helping adults with Down Syndrome—she assumed she’d have it all, and there’d be no need to fall back on the marriage pact she made with her best pal from college.
But a tipsy message she sends from her birthday party brings Ian Nolan to her door ready to rock her world, and not just with mind-blowing sex. He’s up for tying the knot, and has a million pragmatic reasons it makes perfectly good sense.
As Sarah and Ian test drive their marriage-of-convenience, they navigate awkward business dinners, a slippery steam room hookup, and a costume party gone awry. Their friendship is stronger than ever, and the sexual chemistry is off the charts.
But is that enough to make a marriage work, or will one of them fall hard and end up brokenhearted?
Each book in the The List series is STANDALONE:
* The List
* The Test
* The Last
This story features Ian and Sarah. Ten years ago they were best friends and vowed that by the time they were 30, if they weren’t married, they’d marry each other. Now, 10 years later, he’s so jaded against love and wants to marry her for companionship only. This story is about Ian’s struggle against falling in love and Sarah falling in love with someone who doesn’t believe in love.
The story has sad and tragic moments but it’s also about second chances and happiness.
I loved the first two books in this series so I was so excited for Sarah's story. I actually have loved every book I've read by this author so I knew this book was going to be amazing.
Sarah is turning 30. By now, she thought she'd be married and have family but her dating experiences could be a book of disasters. On her birthday, she tells her friends of a pact she made with her college BFF. If they were both single when they turned 30, they would marry each other. So enter Ian and his new ideas about what marriage should be: a business arrangement.
These two were something else. I loved the banter, the history, the chemistry. I was glued to this book from the second I started to the very end. I can't wait to see what comes next from this author!!

This is an interesting twist on the second chance romance. Sarah and Ian were best friends in college until Ian left after his brother died their sophomore year. Ten years have past and they have kept in touch via Facebook and their annual birthday messages. Sarah is celebrating her thirtieth birthday with her friends when she tells them about her pact with Ian that they would get married to each other if they were both single when they turned thirty. Her friends encourage her to text him, which leads to them reconnecting. Ian has changed since college, he has locked his heart down so he can never be hurt loving someone again. He suggests a marriage of convenience with Sarah, and she agrees. Problem is, love is not always convenient. I loved this book, it had the right amount of humor and angst. I received an ARC of this book from NetGalley for my honest review
