Marry the girl I’ve had a crush on my whole life? Check.

Inherit a hundred-billion-dollar company? Check.

Produce an heir… Wait, what?

I have ninety days to knock up my brand-new fake wife. There’s only one problem—she hates my guts.

And in the fine print of the contract? The requirement that we produce an heir.

She can’t stand to be in the same room with me. Says she’ll never be in my bed.

But I’ve never backed down from a challenge and I’m not about to start now.

Mark my words—I’ll have her begging for me, and it won’t take ninety days.

On the heels of her smash hit and New York Times bestselling SCREWED series, Kendall Ryan brings you HITCHED, a romantic comedy that delivers heart and heat. A NYC playboy turned business mogul has ninety days to win over the woman he's always desired in order to save his father's company. One tiny problem: She hates his guts.

Hitched is the first installment in a three part Imperfect Love series. Each book releasing about a month apart. This is the story of Noah Tate and Olivia Cane. Two business professionals whose families have a long standing history of friendship and a partnership in their media advertising firm. Their relationship over the years hovers from business professional to disgust depending on the actions of our manwhore hero on any given day. 

When Noah's father passes away, they're both unpleasantly surprised to find that in order for them to take over their company, they must marry and become co-CEOs... Oh, and provide an heir within 90 days of their nuptials. That's all good if Olivia could stand to be within breathing distance of Noah on any given occasion. Marriage? Living together? Children? Say it ain't so. But refusing causes the instability in the already unstable company their families have spent decades building....

This is one of those love-hate tropes. She's disgusted with Noah yet deep-down has this insane attraction to everything he exudes. Rumors say a lot around the office space but when Olivia starts to spend some time with Noah 1:1 she finds he's much deeper than the shallow character she's mistakenly pinned him as. Could this work? Maybe they need a trial run?

Hitched was cute and sexy. Both MCs having their deep need to keep their company legacy going but giving up their chance for that happily ever after love story. From the blurb, I expected Olivia to really give Noah a run for his money but I was pleasantly surprised to see she saw him for what he truly is after just a few "dates" with him. He cares deeply about the company but more importantly, about his thousands of employees that count on him.

Hitched does end in a bit of a cliffy and I'm happy this is a serial of sorts. I don't think I'd like to wait much longer than the month until the next installment releases. So if you're looking for an easy read, low on angst but fairly steamy, I think this serial will be a hit!
