From the #1 bestselling series and an award-winning author, Lucy Wallace married young andfor all the wrong reasons. After her parents died tragically, she needed to secure a future forherself and her younger sister. So, when her father's business partner, Will Arlington, offered to marry her and take her sister in as his own, she said yes.
It was a marriage of convenience, not love.
Lucy knew what was expected of her in exchange for Will saving her and her sister from ruin—to provide a nice home and family for him. But after ten years together, a child is the one thing Lucy was never able to provide for her husband.
Now they sleep in different rooms and lead separate lives. Until one day Lucy witnesses something that changes everything, and she fears her darkest secret may come to light. Because she's done the one thing that was forbidden from the moment she said yes. She fell in love with her husband.
But now that she's realized her true feelings, she can no longer pretend to be happy in her marriage. If Will can never love her, she'll have to make the hardest decision of her life.
To secure Will's happiness she must release him from a marriage he never wanted. But can she walk away and break her heart in the process?

I didn't think it was that great. Lucy was really silly and Will was dense!
The good storyline and well detailed characters made this book a real pleasure to read! I look forward to reading more from this author!
This is one truly emotional romance. Can I say how much I have loved this series? ❤️️ Lucy has done everything for her husband, Will, and her younger sister, Kimi. But when Kimi comes home from college, Lucy is rudely woken up to the fact that her marriage isn't as happy or normal as she thought it was. The problem is that both she and Will have learned to adapt to life as it is and neither one knows how to ask for what they want or need. It truly is an emotional read that has you hoping things work out for them right up to the end. This is the third book in the Forbidden Romance series and it is just as good as the first two. It can be read as a standalone but I wouldn't really suggest it as there are crossover characters from each book. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
