My review of On the Dotted Line by Kim Carmichael

On the Dotted Line by Kim Carmichael

Publication Date: January 23, 2015
Genre: Stand-alone contemporary romance


A signature can change everything…

Rather than silver, Randolph Van Ayers III was born with a platinum spoon in his mouth and plenty of strings attached. Faced with a list of specific goals he must achieve in order to earn control of his family’s banking empire, he’s accomplished each task and triumphed. One item remains on his list. He must marry by his thirty-third birthday and stay married for one year. However, when his so-called fiancée leaves him on the courtroom steps only hours before his deadline, he realizes he might lose for the first time in his life, and a Van Ayers never fails.

Taught to rely on the universe for answers, Willow Day has always struggled in the material world, specifically her lack of material. With her small holistic store near foreclosure and without a home, she must do anything within her power to make the business work and take care of the woman who raised her. When the rude, yet gorgeous, Randolph the Third offers to fix all her troubles in exchange for one year of her life, she opens her mind and takes a chance.
It’s the battle of the mystical over the money. Between a hidden pet who looks more like a cotton ball, performance artists with wings, and a woman who spouts advice like a living fortune cookie, everything from restaurant reservations to a trip to celebrate the winter solstice create clashes for the couple as they learn how to fit into each other’s worlds.

With both their futures at stake, they must learn to accept reality, what the fates have dealt them and the consequences of falling in love from the moment they decided to sign on the dotted line

4 very sweet sexy stars!

Randolph Van Ayers III has less than two hours to get married or loses his inheritance.  His family’s bank has been passed down for generations and he is not going to let some contract ruin it. 

Outside of an art gallery in an alleyway he propositions Willow.  This young timid gypsy that owns a herbal tea shop.  She is in debt and can’t make her rent so he gives her an offer she can’t refuse.  Marry him for one year and then be free and set for life.  The catch?

He is extremely chivalrous, intense and don’t forget gorgeous and without trying Willow breaks his walls down one by one.  The entire family falls in love with her, her Nan and her little dog. 

She finds out being a wife of an Van Ayers is harder than it appears. With major mishaps here and there.  But regardless of the struggles she is helplessly falling in love with her husband. 

The only thing is the contract is always dangling over her head, and she wonders if she will be able to give up her marriage and her heart once the year is up.

Beautiful original story.  I was sucked in from the first chapter.
