Blake Harrison: Rich, titled, and charming…and in need of a wife by Wednesday. Blake turns to Sam Elliot, who isn’t the businessman he expected. Instead, Blake is faced with Samantha Elliot, beautiful and feisty with a voice men call 1-900 numbers to hear.
Samantha Elliot: Owner of matchmaking firm Alliance and not on the marital menu…that is, until Blake offers her ten million dollars for a one-year contract. And there’s nothing indecent about this proposal. The money will really help with her family’s medical bills. All Samantha will need to do is keep her attraction to her new husband to herself and avoid his bed.
But Blake’s toe-curling kisses and sexy charm prove too difficult for Sam to resist. It was a marriage contract that planned for everything…except falling in love.

I just Love the Allure of a Great Romance...a Pair of Rose Colored Glasses...some Fine Wine, and a Subscription to Audible...
Wife by Wednesday: Weekday Brides, Book 1 is a fun, easy listening romance that I believe everyone will enjoy. If you would like to put a smile on your face, this listen will do it. A credit worthy romance, indeed!
I am an avid listener. I listen between 75-100 hours per month on my iPhone: 60% fiction to 40% non-fiction.
I’m always a sucker for a guy gets girl; struggles to keep girl kind of story. This plot has been done in movies at least three or four times in the recent past. If you are a romantic or like fairy tales set in good old USA then this novel is for you. Bybee does an excellent job in character development given the length and depth of the plot. By the end first hour of listening, you are wondering where the rub is going to come from – is it here, there, and from who. I like the pace and the grace the Tanya Evy brings to the performance of the characters. I recommend it, it is a pretty short listen - only five hours, you won’t be disappointed.
This is definitely a reread. I liked the characters and the narrator. The story was quick, romantic and had funny moments. Light reading when you need a quick escape.
Busy mom who loves to read but doesn't always have the time. I enjoy YA, Romance and the occasional Best Seller.
This is definitely a summer beach read or a rainy-day listen. It's short, sweet and doesn't tax your brain. It's like being in the shallow end of a pool...enjoyable but with no real depth. Luckily I was in the mood for a light and fluffy romance.
Will do anything for books!
This is a fun one! Total fairy tale, enjoyed the story and will listen again. The narrator was a bit mechanical sounding but that is all the bad I have to say about it. The story is on the shorter side, but honestly there is so often a bunch of unnecessary crap in books this one is more to the point, without all the extras. Good beginning of a fun series.
I enjoyed this fast paced audiobook. It fast-forwards events that in most longer books go into too much detail (I call filler words) and become boring, yet the crucial areas of the book are described in detail, making it interesting from start to finish.
I was happy to see less filler words used--most people can imagine an elopement to Nevada without having every detail spelled out for them, or flights to and from England on a private Jet, without every detail being drawn out.
Although the narrator did well, I think another narrator could have done better, especially during the sex scenes.
All in all, I would recommend "Wife By Wednesday" for someone wanting a light entertaining afternoon or evening.
That if you give someone time the one you thought you could not love is the one that you fall for.
They talk to each other openly and truthfully
How she change her voice
just like it
looking for more work from Catherine Bybee that I can listen to
Listen on people!
I like books narrated by Tanya Eby. I like Romances. And easy listening at night before bed. This one fit all those requirements. Not the best I've listened to, but pretty much kept my attention.
At the very top, I enjoyed this in so many ways for so many reason.
When Blake came home and found her in the bath having a war with the condoms.
I loved her voice, the characters that she brought to life. I enjoyed the moods she gave each one, the power she put behind each character you felt like you were there. I just could not put this down.
This is the first book I have read/listen to by this author it will not be the last. There was nothing I didn't like, the author gave a compelling story of power, needs, wants, pain, trust, honor as we are reminded that things are not always as they seem. I thought the author sent a powerful message along with a wonderful plot.
Two people come together in an arranged marriage so both can come out ahead. For Samantha she just wanted to be able to take care of her sisters needs. Samantha was a wonderful caring, loving, compassionate character. She looked out and helped so many, is it any wonder why everyone around her fell in love with her. She had lost so much in a short time no one can blame her for getting married for money when it was done for the love of her sister. She is a very strong stubborn women who believes on standing on her own, she lets her actions speak for her but gives so much of herself.
Blake is powerful but caring and will not give up the money for family reason. No he doesn't need it but his mother and sister do. He might be an alpha male but he is a compassionate one to those he loves. He is rich due to his hard work not what his father left him. He spent his life proving to his father he could stand on his own and make something of his self. His father isn't willing to let go not even in death, his father must have control.
One things leads to another and these two are in over their heads. Things were done and said that might tear them apart before they can work out how they really feel about each other. To many hands in the pot stirring up a mess of trouble for any good to come of this.
I thought this was a wonderful plot, the author gives you a page turner that you can't put down. The narrator brings that story to life in a way that keeps you hanging on to each word. The author gives the read mystery that you do not see coming, she puts just enough twists and turns to keep you interested and before you know it with the narrator you are done and left wanting more from both the author and the narrator. I enjoy a humorous read with meaning which I felt the author gave you. In my book this was more than a 5 star read. I would have liked to have known what happen to the people behind the scam and if anything happen to the firm in question. In no way does this take away from the story just something I would have liked to have known.
Sometimes when we try to out smart people it comes back to bite us as Samantha and Blake found out. I can relate to the characters in this book family should mean more than anything to us as these wonderful characters showed us. Yes they came out ahead if things go as planned but they never thought of their selves just of their families needs. I feel sure if I was in either ones of their shoes I very well would have done the same thing. To make sure your family is taken care of without hurting others I could see a lot of people following along in their shoes. I found this story to be very believable with wonderful caring characters. I will be checking out more books by this author and expect she will be added to my favorite author's list very soon.
