About the book: Liam Bernhard has climbed Egyptian pyramids, skydived, searched for sunken treasure, reached high camp on Mount Everest, and paddle boarded in Antarctica. He has one final wish before he dies; he wants to be married. With time running short, he hires Pamela Jones to find him a bride.
Kiera Martin has done the Billionaire Marriage Brokers arrangement once before and it didn’t turn out well. She left her verbally abusive husband and BMB behind to nurse her mom through cancer treatments—expensive cancer treatments. Three years later, with few financial options left, still carrying baggage from her first marriage, and her mom in remission, Kiera gives Pamela one more chance.
What she thinks will be the fast road to debt reduction turns out to be the hardest path she’s ever trod as Liam’s diagnosis looms over their every minute together. He showers her with enough love to last eternity, which is good because eternity may be all they have to look forward to. In order to find her happy ending in a world where sorrows outweigh the joys, Kiera must learn how to live in the moment, cherish every good gift, and love like she was dying.
My review: This book is so cute! I love the whole story, it's well written, full of love and kisses, and I love that I could read it in a short afternoon's time. And I love that it's a clean romance that I don't have any problem passing on to my daughter to read.
I love Kiera, and that she is able to have another chance after her first BMB marriage that didn't work. It was great to me to see her happy and healthy after her quick appearance in The Academic Bride. I love her compassion for everyone she meets. I love how she's able to care for her mom, for her patients at the cancer institute and that she's able to determine right away that Liam is sick and how to care for him.
Liam is a great character as well! I love the idea of his life, jetting from place to place with his brother David, finishing off the bucket list they've created for themselves. I love his lack of selfishness, and how to the very end he's caring for Kiera and David both, giving them what they both need to move on.
This book made me laugh, it made me cry, and it made me sigh in happiness. Make sure to grab your own copy!
I was sent an e-copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
