I Do, But Here's the Catch - Pamela Burford


When four high school friends promise to find husbands for one another if any of them are still single at age thirty, they have no idea how complicated the pact will make their lives twelve years later! Book 2 of the Wedding Ring matchmaker series is I Do, But Here’s the Catch.

I Do, But Here's the Catch 
I do, but here's the catch by Pamela Burford.

The Prospective Bride: Carlotta “Charli” Rossi, last of a dying breed: the thirty-year-old virgin. It’s love at first sight when her matchmaking friends set her up on a blind date with Grant—but does he feel the same way about her?
The Prospective Groom: Grant Sterling, a handsome, rich, worldly lawyer, always in control. This confirmed bachelor’s only goal is to make partner at his stuffy law firm, and for that he requires a mousy, undemanding wife who doesn’t turn him on.
The Hitch: Charli is thrilled to become Mrs. Grant Sterling, but maybe she should have paid closer attention to the details before the wedding! Grant thinks he’s planned the perfect marriage of convenience, devoid of messy complications like sex and commitment. Good thing perfect plans never go wrong, huh?

My Review

To begin with, I wasn't completely convinced by this story line. When Charlie and Grant decide to get married, it's clear that there's been a big misunderstanding. I wasn't entirely convinced that something like this could happen, surely no one would manage to get that confused? But it didn't matter, as the story progressed and Grant begins to fall in love with Charli, I really didn't care that the wedding set up was a little far fetched.

Charli, who has spent her whole life being the dutiful, good daughter, finds out that there's far more to life and that she has far more power over men, or at least the one man that counts, than she ever thought possible. Soon, she's learning all the little moves and tricks that drive Grant wild, he can't resist her.

Of course the path of true love has a few humps and bumps along the way. But this was a great story and I am really looking forward to the third book in the series. I'll be sharing my review of that soon.
