5.0 out of 5 starsLove Can Sneak Up On You

When I ordered the first book in this series, “Part-Time Husband” I wasn’t sure about the premise of the book, but I have enjoyed other books by this author...so I thought I would give it a shot. It was a fun book to read and so was the second. “Packaged Husband” had me smiling, sighing and when Owen sings to Chelsea in the hallway of the restaurant...Oh My Gosh! I loved this book so much I read the first two again. These three sisters are so easy to like and care about, and the men they marry are just right for them. Even though Pop is a curmudgeon and hard to like, he genuinely loves his granddaughters. I am looking forward to the last story in this series.

I love romance novels! I read the earlier books in this series, loved the first and liked the second. I liked this one a little less. The premise was mildly intriguing - spoiled heiress agrees to pretend to be trophy wife of older department store magnate, only to fall in love. The heroine was mildly compelling - pretty and vivacious but not historically useful. The hero was also mildly compelling - handsome and dedicated but painfully awkward. They had mild chemistry and no sizzle. The storyline was predictable. Overall, not a bad book but never caught my fancy.
I'm a fan and I like the way the author writes. She has a quirky way of describing her characters' feelings, which I enjoy. In this third in the series, the younger "pretty" sister marries an older H. The H is head of a department store chain that is a bit out of date and he needs the h's help to give them a bit more of an edge. He suggests a fake marriage for a year to up his cool factor. I couldn't put it down and even had a few teary moments. Good news is that the author is adding in a fourth book to the series, can't wait.
I love all of Noelle Adams' books. This one was no exception. The pretty young "spoiled princess" and the older, shy " fuddy-duddy". It is a fun, emotional, romantic, sexy read. It was fun to see them both grow-up through the book. Even though Owen is 41 there was still some growing up he needed to do. I'm very happy to hear there will be another in this series. Howfun!
I can’t even tell you what I liked so much about this book, but when I finished it I read it again. Chelsea is a very insecure person and finding Owen who is almost twice her age really works for this situation. Owen is really written as a true “fuddy duddy” and some of his characteristics are of a much older person. I didn’t care for that but I liked his character overall.

What’s with misunderstandings due to lack of communication. It’s played out and old. I loved the characters. But really had issues with their lack of communication. It of course gets resolved and they live happily ever after. But it wasn’t my fav book of the series.

I loved getting to know the last sister. She wanted to change how people see her. So she set out to change herself and prove she can rebrand an image of Seth for his buisness. It was nice taking the trophy wife premise and turning it on its head.

I've just discovered this author and I love her writing. This book was a pleasant surprise. I absolutely loved both main characters and it was well written and kept me gripped throughout. Will be buying more books by this author.

A really good read.This book is very good,a good story with enjoyable characters.I've enjoyed reading this book very much and look forward to reading further books in this series. Big red(Kingston upon Hull England).
I always enjoy Noelle Adams, she writes passionate, normal romances with real characters. This is part of the contemporary, adult ‘TROPHY HUSBANDS’ erotic, romance series. ‘PACKAGED HUSBAND’ is the 3rd in the series of 3 sisters that are forced into marriage by their grandfather - Pop. This is forty-one year old, businessman Owen Masterson, and twenty-four year old Chelsea Greyson’s story and can be read as a stand alone easily.
Chelsea has always been known as “the pretty one”. With no job, experience and a penchant for fine clothes, hair and nails she literally has coasted through living off her grandfather’s goodwill. She is now determined to make something of herself and with that decision made, she hears that Owen’s business isn’t doing well and he needs to work on his image and repackaging himself so she literally propositions him... She also jokes about being a trophy wife however he takes her up on both propositions...
I liked Owen he was a bit nerdy, but kind and clearly besotted with Chelsea. I adored how he was pretty much speechless when he was with Chelsea in the beginning.
If you are after a thoroughly enjoyable marriage of convenience story and a fast paced book with some serious sizzle you will enjoy ‘Packaged Husband’ as they were so cute together and I loved how their relationship evolved ever so naturally... 4.5 Stars PS;- Not to mention how great Owen’s hilarious serenading is...
