Love Contract

Love Contract
Lisa Watson

Milan has moved to town to escape a bad relationship mistake. She doesn't like leaving her family, but soon makes some amazing friends. One of those friends sets up an interview for Milan at her son's realty company. But Adrian is tired of his mom's incessant matchmaking and mistakes Milan for another match. It will take him tons of apologies to correct his mistake.

The book was funny at times. It also seemed a little cliche. The outcome was completely predictable, as are most romance novels. But the emotions and reactions were also predictable. The standard conflict that seems standard issue in a romance was also there, but it felt thrown in at the last minute to create some drama. I just didn't buy the resolution.
The female character in the book speaks Spanish. Since I don't, it was extremely difficult to follow the story. The author would translate some of it, but it really broke up the flow of the story. 
I guess I like my men and women in a romance to have a lot less fighting and more of a connection than just physical.

I received this book free of charge from Goodreads in exchange for my honest review.
