Gah! I think I’m in swoony heaven right now! My word. The Contract by Melanie Moreland is so utterly captivating, so addicting, so beautiful. My heart can’t take the transformation that happens in this book. Its literally breath taking.
Written perfectly, The Contract follows Richard and Katy through lies and deceit, power, hurt, anger and sadness. Before developing into pure bliss. A stunning love story packed with an infinite amount of feels. As a reader, so fully sucked into the book, I fell in love with the characters as they did. My feelings were the same as theirs and I felt as though I was IN the story with them.
From the start it’s pretty easy to guess how the book will develop.. You can predict what is going to happen. BUT what you can’t predict is HOW it happens and I have to admit, reading The Contract was nothing like I predicted, only BETTER. As I mentioned the characters development over the story is nothing but gripping.
Richard is an absolute a*se, not going to lie. I can’t count the amount of times I wanted to smack him, but I reveled in the fact that I could see what was going and I couldn’t wait for him to eat his words..
Katy was the perfect heroine for this book. So utterly sweet and adorable. My heart ached for her. Her personal journey and pain and her reasons for signing the contract blew me away. Katy is so easy to connect too, so easy to love. In fact this whole book is easy to love.
This is my first book by Melanie, it won’t be my last. Her writing is powerful, story telling effortless.
5 captivating, sign my heart away stars.
A tyrant by day, a playboy by night. That is the reputation that precedes Richard VanRyan. He lives life the way he wants, no concern for the opinion of others. He cares for no one, is completely unrepentant, and he has no desire to change his ways.
Katharine Elliott works under Richard as his PA. She despises him and his questionable ethics, but endures all the garbage he sends her way, because she needs the job. Her end goal is far more important than the daily abuse and demands she tolerates from her nasty tyrant of a boss.
Until the day, he asks her for something she never expected. A new role with a personal contract— fiancée instead of PA.
