ARC Review: Confessions From an Arranged Marriage by Miranda Neville

I really wanted to like this book. This was one of those books I was greatly looking forward to and it just did not meet my expectations. In previous books the sparks between Minerva and Blake were explosive and when I found out they were going to be each other's HEA I was ecstatic. I couldn't wait for the insults and the back and forth bickering that would turn into explosive sexual chemistry. Sadly none of that occurred in this book.

While I enjoyed this book, it just seemed to drag on in some parts. I very much did enjoy the relationship between Minerva and Blake (even though it wasn't what I was hoping for) I just felt like it was overshadowed by all of the politics in the book. It felt as if the politics took over and became the main characters while Minerva and Blake became secondary characters. I understand that it's a big part of the book and it's very important to Minerva, I just felt bored by it. I wanted there to be more focus on Minerva and Blake and their relationship.

I really enjoyed watching these two achieve their HEA. They went from two people who couldn't stand one another to a couple that loves and trusts each other. There were quite a few scenes between them that I loved and completely moved me.

Overall, I enjoyed the this book. Do I wish there was a bit more chemistry between the Minerva and Blake? Yes, but I still enjoyed what we were shown and I enjoyed watching them both grow. They went from two people that virtually hated each other to such a strong unit that loves and trust one another. I hope we get to see more of them in future books. I give this a 3 1/5 stars.

  1. Thanks for the review! I haven't read this author and I'm kinda on the fence since I have a TBR mountain and I definitely don't need any more books :) But the discounted Kindle price is what caught my eye. But it sounds like it's in a series, and I have to read series in order and I'm trying to avoid that since I have the aforementioned TBR mountain.So... still thinking :)

    Happy St. Patrick's Day! Hope it's safe, fun and fabulous for you!
