"His Ring Is Not Enough" by Maisey Yates

Author's Book Description : After “I do...”

Ajax Kouros had a plan. Being jilted at the altar? Not part of it—especially when facing a thousand guests and one hundred reporters. His company’s future depends on marrying a Holt, and when his bride’s sister steps up to the…altar, can he say no?

Leah Holt grew up watching her beautiful socialite sister hang on Ajax’s arm. Now she has the chance to stand in the spotlight and save her family’s fortune. But saying “I do” is only the beginning, and Leah soon realizes that the man she married is far more complex and distracting than the boy of her childhood fantasies....

My Book Review : 2 out of 5 stars, this novel is about a lost soul getting married to his fiancĂ©e’s sister because of a snafu that happens right before the wedding and them coming to terms with their new life together...

I was optimistic for this novel because I liked the previous novels I've read by Ms. Yates. Therefore, I was disappointed to find that I had a hard time enjoying this novel because I didn't feel there was a good connection between Ajax & Leah. I mean, yes, if you follow through with this novel you'll see how there relationship grows, while coming to terms with Ajax's past life. Yet, their relationship always felt one-sided right up until the last chapter (and epilogue), which was hard for me to enjoy.

Even though I didn't enjoy it, as I'd have liked, I did think the storyline was well thought out and unique. I recommend it for those who are fans of Ms. Yates and/or like contemporary romances!

Book Teaser(s) :
“Sorry, did you need something?”
“I forgot to mention that there is a charity event tonight Rachel and I planned on attending. Given the circumstances surrounding our marriage I’m certain the media will be there, and they will be waiting for the story.”
“You mean... we have to go to this?”
“Yes. If we miss it... if we miss it we’re inviting speculation. I will not give that to the public. I’ll not give it to Christofides.”
She put her hand on her forehead. “Oh, jeez.”
“Yes. Have you got a gown?”
“I have several. It’s a bad habit of mine, buying dresses that I don’t really have any reason to wear. Don’t judge. Everyone needs a hobby.”
“Well, in this case it seems it’s served us both well.”
“I suppose.”
He looked at her, and more specifically, at the way she wasn’t looking at him. Not really. Not the way she usually did. Usually when he looked at her, he saw the girl with sparkling eyes.
She looked different now. No glitter. Her face a bit more drawn, sculpted. And she seemed tired. He’d never seen her looking tired before. Leah was a woman of endless energy, at least she’d always seemed so to him. A constant sugar high that never seemed to end.
But it had ended sometime. She was so much harder now, but he hadn’t seen it till the past twenty-four hours.
“You will need to be ready by six.”
“Okay,” she said, not looking back up at him.
“And you will need to not look like you’re contemplating putting my head on a pike.”
“No guarantees, darling,” she said, her words carrying a razor-sharp edge.
“We’re supposed to be newlyweds.”
“We are newlyweds. Marriage is hard. First twelve hours is the hardest.” ~ within Chapter 4
