ARC REVIEW – One for the Money, by Skye Warren

#ContemporaryRomance #FakeRelationship


Finn Hughes knows about secrets. His family is as wealthy as the Rockefellers. And as powerful as the Kennedys. No one knows that the men in his line have a debilitating, early-onset illness. He’s managed the business from a young age while his father served as the figurehead. All the while knowing there’s a ticking clock on his ability to lead.

Eva Morelli is the oldest daughter. The responsible one. The caring one. The one who doesn’t have time for her own interests.

Especially not her interest in the charismatic, mysterious Finn Hughes.

A fake relationship is the answer to both their problems.

It will keep the swarming society mothers from throwing their daughters at him.

And it will keep Eva’s mother from bothering her about marriage.

Then the fake relationship starts to feel real.

But there’s no chance for them. No hope for a woman who’s had her heart broken. And no future for a man whose fate was decided long ago.

My Review

Oh my poor heart!  – 5 stars

This is such an emotional read and the next book in Finn and Eva’s story cannot come soon enough! The author Skye Warren effortlessly spins the fake relationship trope into a romance which contains humour, friendship and passion, but also the depths of despair. I absolutely loved it and was glued to my Kindle throughout.

It’s a sexy and character driven read with one very beautiful but very stubborn man who believes he has no future and one woman who, despite believing herself immune to love, cannot but fall for his charms once she gets to know the real man behind the playboy façade.

Finn and Eva are both interesting and complex characters and are so, so perfect for each other. I admit I was on the verge of becoming tearful throughout about their predicament.  The read explores the obligations of family and heritage but above all our quest for a soul mate – the book contains plenty of humour and sizzling scenes to act as counterpoints to their plight. I was tearful at various points within the plot. And as for the ending, I NEED the next book, like NOW.
