Jill Michaels prides herself on one thing: being independent. That is until her daughter gets into an elite school, and she needs money more than ever. It seems her fairy godmother—aka her deceased Grammy—has granted that wish in the form of one-fourth of her estate. The only catch? She must be married by her thirtieth birthday. In two months.
Aaron Collins is fresh out of the army and back in town to help his father’s failing business. When he runs into Jill at a hotel where she’s attending a single’s mixer, he makes sure she doesn’t make it past his room and into another guy’s arms. When he hears about her predicament, he has a plan: they’ll get married and keep it a secret. And maybe have a little sexy fun until he leave towns for his new job.
But letting go of the woman of his dreams may be harder than Aaron could have ever imagined.

A few months ago I read the first book in this series, Landing the Air Marshal, and I really enjoyed it. I prefer Jennifer Blackwood’s new adult books but since I liked it I wanted to read the second book, especially because I knew it would be about Gage’s sister. This will be a super short review since it was a super short book but I can tell you I enjoyed this book even if there were a few things I didn’t like.
First of all, I found the plot kind of weird. As much as I know Jill’s grandma wanted the best for her I highly doubt she would put in her will that her granddaughter only had 2 months to get marrie if she wanted her inheritance. It was just too weird for me. If it had been 6 months it would be kind of okay (but not really) but 2 months?? Especially knowing how badly Jill needed the money?? I couldn’t buy it. The time span was my biggest problem because 2 months it’s not enough even for a relationship develop. However, I did like that Jennifer Blackwood wrote about two characters who already knew each other since they were little. For the time span it worked.
I really enjoyed the Jill and Aaron. They were amazing and had a great chemistry. I just think it would have been better if the book was a little longer because some things happened to fast. However, the character I loved more was Jill’s daughter. She was such a cutie. It would have been so cool if could have seen more of her (and more of her with Aaron… even if the epilogue did wonders in that subject).
This book is super fast to read and flew nicely. Once again I really liked Jennifer Blackwood’s writing style and I really liked that this book had a dual POV because it wouldn’t have been the same if it didn’t have Gage’s perspective on the whole thing.
Overall, this was an enjoyable book. I really liked it but for me it was something it would have worked better as a full lenght novel and not a novella and if the time span was longer too. I still liked it and if you’re in need of a romance you should give this one a try because you won’t get disappointed. Also, read Jennifer Blackwood’s books if you are in need of romance because her books are really good.
Have you read this book? If so, what did you think about it? If you haven’t read it would you read it?
