Holy frack I can't stop puking butterfliesThere was cheese people there's no denying it So much cheese than even Mickey Mouse suffers from stomach ache And clichés it felt like watching The Proposal with a role reversal But you know what I love the Proposal ogling Ryan Reynolds' butt has nothing to do with it and I love cheese “A tyrant at work and a playboy after hours” Katy's boss is horrible He's one of those bosses you want to strangle in their sleep dance around their corpse and feed their body parts to carnivorous animals And he needs her help You see Richard VanRyan wants this job really bad but his reputation precedes him and the only way to convince his future employer that he's changed is to pretend to be engaged to a down to earth sweet and warm girl and the only candidate is Katy his PA And he hates her guts The feelings are mutual but Katy is desperate for the money and reluctantly agrees to move in with him and play the dutiful betrothed part until emotions come to surface that perplex an already perplexed situation Sounds fun right “I grabbed my coat and opened the door for her knowing my life was about to change in ways I never planned I only hoped it would be worth it” I'm a sucker for the enemies that fall in love theme and Melanie Moreland executed it perfectly The tension and the slowly burning romance turned my insides into goo and I loved the way my heart constantly fluttered I was lost in their touches and their kisses I smiled with their bickerings and sass and I ended up staring at my purple walls day dreaming and ignoring the fact that I'm going to die aloneRichard was ubber delicious Bossy isolated cold and let's be honest a huge asshole that didn't care about anyone besides himself driven by his selfish motives and always eager to insult he didn't seem like the guy that could fall in love or fight for the woman he loved But he did His developement was heartwarming the moments he showed that there was kindness in him were eually sexy with his jerkish moments plus sweet Katy was the one to find that he actually had a soul and she helped it come to light She was a delicate heroine kind and compassionate and you wanted to hug and comfort her You could easily relate to her and understand her insecurities and fears and you would trade your place with hers in a heartbeat if it meant that you'd get to kiss Richard Personally I'd devour himThe Contract wasn't an original story but it was an enjoyable one and I do recommend it if you're in the mood for a book that resembles the typical chick flick movies you so adamantly claim you don't watch but we both know you're lying
