On the heels of her smash hit and New York Times best-selling Screwed series, Kendall Ryan brings you Hitched, a romantic comedy that delivers heart and heat.
Marry the girl I've had a crush on my whole life? Check. Inherit a hundred-billion-dollar company? Check. Produce an heir.... Wait, what?
I have 90 days to knock up my brand-new fake wife. There's only one problem - she hates my guts. And in the fine print of the contract is the requirement that we produce an heir.
She can't stand to be in the same room with me. She says she'll never be in my bed. But I've never backed down from a challenge, and I'm not about to start now. Mark my words - I'll have her begging for me, and it won't take 90 days.

I thought this book was awesome until the end.
was not expecting that. waiting for the next book, I guess I should have read reviews first because I never buy books with cliffhangers. please tell me it won't be long until the next one comes out.
I love contemporary romance novels!
A full complete novel would have been nice?
I like the idea of the story line, it has potential. It moved too slow to take place in over 1 months time. It should have been written as a complete novel instead of 3 installments. Noah and Olivia were family friends who grew up together and now need to get married per a will/contract as designed by each of their fathers. The problem is Noah is a player and Olivia was hurt by her former boyfriend. Olivia was also burned by Noah when she was 19 and in college and drunk, he rejected her advances. He always wanted her but in reality he didn't want to be used, because at the time Olivia was still a virgin and was saddened by her mothers battle with cancer. Noah put a stop to it. She left hurt. Fast forward to years later Noah's Dad has passed on and the board wants to take over the struggling company. Fred, Olivia's dad is navigating Noah through contract.
Olivia is fighting this because she feels that she can turn the company around with hard work. She doesn't want to be forced into marriage, she wants the fairytale.
It probably will be a different author.
Ava Erickson and Teddy Hamilton did a fine job.
My reaction is disappointment.
I assumed this was a one and done novel, it ended in a cliff hanger? I have enough interest in the couple and their story to continue reading but I really am disappointed this couldn't have been wrapped up in one book.
I hate this new style of greed publishing where Authors or their publishers try to rake their readers out of more money by giving us snippets of story and expect us to keep purchasing more snippets of story to tell the full story. This appears to be another situation of this style of publishing. I have already stopped reading HM Ward(The Arrangement) and Beth Kery (Because you are mine) because they do this too. I guess Kendall Ryan will be the third author I stop reading.
I will pay good money for a good FULL story but this nickel and dime publishing mentality is crap.
Used to read a ton... as life got busier, didn't have the time... Discovered Audible and LOVE IT! 51 year old professional female.
I despise cliffhanger endings. I resent investing hours of time, if I'm enjoying the book, and being left with no ending in sight.
I thought the premise of the novel was good. There are some books I listen to and afterwards I have to go back and listen to a part or buy the paper book because the book was so good. This is not one of them. I felt a lot of the dialog was in the heads of the characters. In my opinion the book is missing the quality that keeps a listener captivated. The book ends with a cliffhanger; usually cliffhangers leave me wanting more for this book it was kind of abruptly. I wish their journey was more exciting…
If you are low on credits I would safe the credit.
what do we live in the time when marriages were pre-selected and woman were only meant to be used as a sperm bank.I understand the feelings between both Olivia and Noah were more involved then they both understood;but I get how Olivia could feel betrayed and to be made to feel like nothing more than a bargaining chip.I understand that an entire companies employees livelyhood are at stake and a company the family have built together on the chance that the two Tate and Cane heirs do love match the old fashioned style to maintain some balance and security with in the company and those people who rely on their jobs,but at what cost.The stakes are even harder now,now that their will have to be a possible,innocent child to make all this work.Can't wait to listen to the next book.I hope all works out because I honestly believe that Noah and Olivia have more than attraction towards eachother.Inbelieve that what they have can build true happiness for all involved including them.
My books offer solace and refuge amidst the hustle and bustle of life ;)
I usually like Kendall Ryan but this book drolls on and on. Then suddenly it stops. I was prepared to say It was an ok story but the cliffhanger changed my mind. I am not will to invest the time into reading the next book
Yep. I have enjoyed her books in the past
The narrators were excellent
I enjoyed this story and the narration was also well done. At times the book seemed to move a little slow on the plot, but I'm hoping book 2 will pick up the pace.
To gain controlling interest in their joint family business, Olivia and Noah must marry each other. Their responses to this startling fact is very entertaining. Unexpectedly, recently reformed man-whore Noah is actually on board with the plan. However, it’s going to take some convincing to get Olivia on board.
I really enjoyed this read. It’s funny, sweet, entertaining, and sexy. I have to admit, I expected more steam after reading the blurb and a few reviews, but that wasn’t a major detractor.
Here’s what I liked: Noah is a great character. He’s not what I expected at all. As a former man-whore, he’s cocky (in more ways than one) and self-assured, but also open, supportive, and caring. I totally dug that!
The story is well written and includes great banter. It has witty and sexy dialogue.
Olivia is a strong hard-working woman. She’s more than just a pretty face.
My one major critique of this book is the cliffhanger. I went into this knowing there would be a cliffhanger (so that’s totally on me), but I’m still scratching my head at the ending.
Overall, this was a quick enjoyable read. I’m looking forward to reading the remaining books in this series to see how Noah and Olivia’s story ends.
Audiobook review: The story is told from dual POV, so the Audible version is narrated by Ava Erickson and Teddy Hamilton. Ms. Erickson did a great job narrating the story. I was not impressed by Mr. Hamilton. I had to speed this one up a bit (1.5X) to really enjoy it. The narration was just okay. This title is Whyspersync if you own the Kindle version.
I loved these characters!
Olivia is driven by work and has little room in her life for more. But she is so responsive to Noah; although giving in to the pleasure he offers isn't what she wants. Noah is flirtatious and sexy, sweet and caring. And he wants her; more than he realizes.
What their fathers want, a contractual marriage, isn't a dream come true for Noah and Olivia. But they both seem to feel it is worth it. Their futures depend on their agreement to the terms. But Noah secretly realizes he wants more. Just when Olivia's past resurfaces...
