Live-in property & pet caretaker needed. Six-year minimum. Background check required. Generous compensation. Marriage of convenience required.
The moment that Wyett Villin read the ad on her local community’s page, she knew that it would be perfect. It didn’t matter how big the house was, what kinds of animals she had to take care of, or what the compensation was. She didn’t give a flip as long as it got her out of her childhood home and away from the person that she despised the most.
Only, she had no clue that by accepting the position, she would be agreeing to watch over the mini-mansion and two large dogs of Hunt McJimpsey, computer hacker extraordinaire, sexy nerd, and convicted felon of Souls Chapel, Texas.
She’d meant to make her life easier, not complicate it more.
Hunt McJimpsey was careful. He knew exactly what he was doing and practically planned every single step that he took to make sure that he always had his tracks covered.
But one single mistake costs him five years of his life, and if he’s going to go down for the crime, he might as well make it spectacular.
Three years into his prison sentence, he’s a changed man, and definitely not for the better.
He’s harder, angrier, and even more brilliant and conniving than before he went in.
He thinks that by keeping up with his dogs’ babysitter, his property caretaker, and reluctant wife, that he’s only doing his due diligence as a responsible person. Only, what starts out as curiosity for his property turns into genuine like for the woman that is caring for what means the most to him.
When an opportunity to get out of the hellhole known as prison arises and the only thing he has to do is join a motorcycle club and sign some of his free time away to help those less fortunate, he jumps at the chance.
Not only because he’s ready to get the hell out of prison, but because he’s ready to meet the woman that he’s been falling for, one visit a week, for the last three years.
Doin’ a Dime is another LLV book I read in one sitting. Wyett and Hunt are great and have a strange twist on a marriage of convenience!
Wyett was raised by a horrid aunt after her family died. Now that she is 25, she has to fight her aunt tooth and nail for the money she is now set to inherit. Hunt just got sentenced to 10 years for a hacking crime and needs someone to take care of his dogs and house since his family is trash as well. Oh, and he knows he wants it to be Wyett and he adds a clause that they must marry-you know, so she can handle everything while he is in jail.
These two get to know each other via prison visits. It’s so unconventional but it really works for them. By the time Hunt is released on parole, they have a super deep connection that just continues to grow. There is some tension from each of their families which adds to the story, but the focus is really on their relationship.
Doin’ a Dime was a great read and I think it will appeal to fans of the marriage of convenience trope as well as fans of just plain cute romance stories!
