Arranged marriage? Check.
Cocky new husband? Check.
It’s a marriage of convenience—one I’m determined to keep strictly professional. I can’t be stupid enough to fall for this sexy playboy’s charm or advances. I have to be strong, even if he is my husband.
Except he has a huge cock with an even bigger ego, and his main goal in life seems to be getting me to stroke both. The arrogant bastard is like sweet, sugary candy for my libido. I know he’s bad for me.
But I want to devour every wicked inch of him.
With his sexual prowess and experience, I know he’ll be explosive in the bedroom. And since we’re stuck together for the foreseeable future—keeping up this marriage charade long enough to turn the company profitable again—I deserve something to look forward to at the end of a long workday, right?
What could one little taste hurt?
This is volume 2 in the Imperfect Love series.
“What’s wrong?” I ask.
“Just a little tight, is all.”
I inhale through my nose. I have to shove the pregnancy stuff to the back corner of my brain. We’re a long way off from Olivia letting me pump her full of my semen anyhow, so why am I stressing about it now? The first step is showing her how compatible we can be.
And that starts now.
I smile at her. “Sit tight. I’ll be right back.”
I grab a bottle of massage oil from the hall closet and return to the living room. The soft jazz music seems to float in the air, creating a pleasant buzz in the atmosphere.
Olivia’s eyes widen when I rejoin her on the couch, but she doesn’t question me.
“I’ll give you a massage,” I suggest. “Take off your sweatshirt.”
Olivia flinches, chewing on her lip while she watches me. “But I’m not wearing anything underneath.”
That’s the idea. “I promise not to look.”
She hesitates for another second, then turns her back to me and pulls her shirt over her head, dropping it to the floor. The creamy canvas in front of me is one to be admired. The twin dimples in her lower back near the band of her leggings would make lesser men weep.
I warm a few drops of oil between my palms and rest my hands on her stiff shoulders.

~ 3.5 The Secrets We Keep Stars ~
I have to say it deeply pains me to say this, but this installment of Hitched wasn’t my favorite. I don’t know exactly what it was, but something just held me back from fully immersing myself in Noah and Olivia’s story.
This was still a fun and easy read but it was missing something. What I think I would’ve liked more of was the storyline with Brad. I kind of wanted that to be the main focus of this book. I thought that was handled way too quickly.
Hitched Volume 2 is the second installment in the 3 part series by Kendall Ryan. It takes off right where Volume 1 ended. We were left with a cliffhanger in Volume 1 and we are also left with a Cliffhanger in Volume 2. The bonus of that is that Kendall is releasing them 2 weeks apart so there isn’t a long wait for the next book. None of the cliffhangers are that horrible, but if you aren’t a fan of them, it could bring down your enjoyment of the book/series.
I really don’t want to give to much away about the storyline, so I am just going to say this is a continuation of Noah and Olivia’s rocky relationship. Will Noah be able to seduce his “fake” wife? Will Olivia finally give into her lustful needs and sleep with Noah?? Will these two finally admit they have real feelings for each other?? Those are just some of the questions you will have answered when you read this book. I will tell you this….there are some serious secrets being kept throughout this book. I can’t wait to see what happens when all comes out!!!
I am still in love with Noah. He captured my heart in Volume 1 and just wormed himself even further into my heart in this volume. Yes he is keeping some very serious secrets, but you can truly tell he has some serious feelings for Olivia. He is truly a swoontastic Hero. He is sweet and tender, but also aggressive and bossy. Just the perfect mix. I honestly have to say he makes this series wonderful. As for Olivia, I just can’t really warm up to her. I just always want to smack her and say wake up. I think her need to fight against her feelings for Noah and keep everything so professional is what is holding me back from liking her. I want her to loosen up. I am scared as to what the third and final installment is going to bring. With the way this one ended, I have a feeling I’m still going to have trouble warming up to her. I am hoping I am wrong.
Now just because this isn’t my favorite Kendall Ryan book, I still think it is worth the read. If you don’t like cliffhangers then you should wait until all 3 installments are released. This was a quick and easy read without a lot of drama. If you are a fan of Kendall Ryan’s then I believe you should read this series.
