First Comes Marriage by Valerie Mann (A #review)

Who agrees to an arranged marriage in the 21st century? Beth Malone can’t believe a date request with the 1Night Stand service morphed into an arranged marriage offer. But after a heartbreaking divorce and no knight in shining armor coming to sweep her off her feet, her desire to find that knight and have a family is looking more like a dream than a reality.

After filling out a 1Night Stand questionnaire worthy of the CIA, Christian Ramos is stunned when Madame Eve offers to arrange more than a date for one night: she suggests a wife! What the hell? After his best friend Jackson Castillo stops laughing, he advises him to consider the offer. Between the fortieth birthday looming on the horizon and his Latino upbringing, Chris is forced to take a hard look at his life. Reality check—time is running out for what he wants—a family and a woman to share his life.

First comes love, then comes marriage isn’t part of their matrimonial situation, but neither Beth nor Christian anticipated the immediate attraction and contentment that comes with saying, “I do.”

A Review by Beckey

Well, I first would like to say Thank You to Jessica Subject for sharing about this book that sparked my interest since I do like the 1NS book that Decadent publishes…

I found a quick fast pace, there was some minor confusion on to which POV was happening since it switched back and forth within the chapters. But did like the concept idea that Madame Eve deciding to taking her services to another level of match making by taking them straight to the alter… Even though most of the couples lead to more after the one night.

Another thing that was slight confusing was the story time line on the sequence of events as they unfolded.

The story had some witty fun things in store for the damaged characters. The story was somewhat  predictable cause you knew what was going to happen but then there was some unexpected elements also…

Overall good quick and enjoyable to a point kind of story
