Product description

Product Description

It was a modern take on an arranged marriage that was supposed to lead to my happily ever after. The rules were simple:

1.Marry a complete stranger chosen for you by professionals.
2.Live together as man and wife for eight weeks while cameras record your every move.
3.Make a decision to stay together or get a divorce.

Call me crazy, but I had complete faith in the process, until I saw who was waiting for me at the end of the aisle.

Austin James has never met me, but that doesn’t mean I don’t know him. With no other choice, I say my vows and pray I can make it through the next eight weeks. Then I’ll leave. What connects us is my best kept secret, and I’ll protect it at all costs even if that means walking away from the only person I’ve ever cared about.

Married at first sight with a twist. Austin & Jillian paired by experts seems to be the perfect match. The one thing stopping that is Jillians past. She knows who he is but he does not. So it's a matter of time before he finds out. How he does is a betrayal.

It's so sad that these two, while so perfect together are held back by something she had no control over. Austin just can't deal with it. So you'll have to read it to see if there's a HEA.

I was drawn to this couple as the tale was woven. The buildup was well written until the reader & Jillian were devasted by her past. A very enjoyable read.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must read. amazing 4 March 2016

Have you every thought about joining a reality show where they pick person you will marry a complete stranger. Where you first meet on your wedding day. Well that is exactly what Jillian and Austin agree to do. But even thought they have major chemistry and Austin is all in wanting to be with his forever soul mate, he works hard to make Jillian see this can work. But Jillian knew as soon as she was walking down the aisle this was a big mistake. She never thought she would feel the way she does about Austin can she keep her secret the one that if Austin knew he would leave and that would just year her apart. When secrets are exposed can Austin understand and let their Feelings keep them strong or will the betrayal be to much for him to accept. This story sucks you in keeps you in in till the end. When love is so story can love over power the past mistakes and misunderstanding. Will Austin and Jillian find their HE A.

4.0 out of 5 stars Must Read Romance! 29 March 2016
By Kindle Customer - Published on

The first time I found this book on goodreads I scrolled through some of the reviews and found one where another author claimed that she was a fan of a show with a similar premise and I remember thinking the premise isn't similar... it is exactly the same. I believe the only difference [aside from names, including the name of the show] is that there were four couples instead of three. Did this make me not want to read it? Hell no. I wanted to read it more. I happen to like Married at First Sight and the reviews didn't say that the book sucked so I went for it.

Thank god I did. I found myself enjoying this even more than the show.

In Married at First Sight you get to see three couples who have never met before and know nothing about each other meet for the first time as they are getting married. You get to see the good, the bad, and the ugly when it comes to them trying to figure out how to make a marriage work with a complete stranger.

In Hopeless Vows you get to see all of that which is being filmed for the show in the book, First Comes Marriage, and also everything behind the scenes which of course is where all the fun stuff happens. Jillian and Austin are matched together by the experts because they have similar backgrounds and because they fit well together personality wise. The only problem? Jillian seems... withdrawn. You might be too though if you find out that your new husband has something to do with your past that you never want him to find out. It's only eight weeks though. Surely she can make it through without him finding out about her past. This book was full of ups and downs, a lot of steam, a fair amount of jealousy, and enough angst to bring it all together.

All in all I really liked this book. I really like the premise of getting married to a complete stranger through a program that seems to work [instead of it simply being arranged by parents for connections]. I would probably read it again if I was looking for a sweet guy and angsty plot and some well rounded characters.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm a hopeless romantic! 17 May 2017

I'll be honest.. I picked this book based solely on the cover, I have never heard of the author and didn't even read the blurb. I know know that is soooo bad but hey at least I admit it. I'm a sucker for a beautiful cover!

I freakin loved this book! The concept of an arranged marriage was genius and it felt fresh and new. I fell in love with the characters as the story went on and was rooting for them to fall in love!

I loved the way the words just flowed off the page, it made it nearly impossible to put the book down!

I'll be reading more of this authors work in the very near future!

This book was so good. Jillian finally finds her soulmate through a non conventional way, and low and behold it is the one person she can not be with. Her past is coming back to haunt her and destroy her HEA. I can't say enough about Austin, he is devoted, loving, funny, attentive and just simply amazing. He gives 100% to Jillian and even when she starts to pull back he just pushes her harder to fall with him. The story line was unique with a twist I did not see coming. There are a few secrets that come to light that make you sad for these two. Two tortured souls that have been through so much and still can't catch a break. The author had my emotions all over the place with this book, I was mad, happy, excited, intrigued, angry and scared for this couple. This was a great read for anyone who loves second chance romances.

I flat out loved loved loved this book! From the cover art .... stunning! ... which is what first attracted me to this book ... to falling in love with Jillian and Austin .... but more Austin, especially his wedding dance, gaaahh! loved it! ... as they got to know each other ... to them finding their HEA, this book draws you in and refuses to let go. I made the mistake of starting this book about 10:00pm ... "I'll just read the sample, see if I like it" ... and could not put it down. Needless to say, I was a zombie the next day at work but it was sooooo worth it! The ending ... well, not even the ending but their ultimate end and all that came after .... were my least favorite parts. Neither of them handled the situations very well and I wished there was more "acting like a grown up" but in the end it was ok. Rachael was fantastic with Jillian and her panic attack; I literally felt what Jillian felt, when you feel like your world is dropping out from under your feet.

This is one of my go to books, when I need a palate cleanse after reading a book that just didn't do it for me.
