On a Wednesday afternoon, I ask Trevor Bentley to marry me. He might be the most arrogant, obnoxious man I know, but I need him to be my husband for a year.

There are reasons.

He's not going to be a real husband. Just part-time. Yes, I have to live with him. And, okay, I also have to share his bed. And, sure, he's the sexiest and most exciting thing to ever happen to my controlled, organized life.

But still... It's only a part-time marriage. I'm not going to give him my heart. I know what I'm doing, and I'm too smart to fall for my husband.

I hope.
Melissa's grandfather has threatened to take her job in the family business away if she doesn't slow down and start dating. When her lies backfire, she needs to find a husband fast. Angry, she reaches out to Trevor, the one man her grandfather hates.

I loved the ups and downs of this book! I couldn't wait to see what would happen next!

Melissa's grandfather, Pops, is very demanding of her. She feels like she is never good enough, or works hard enough for him. They meet for their usual lunch when he starts in on her being alone, and unmarried. He claims that he is going to restructure her position so she has more free time to date and find "the one". In an attempt to divert him from this plan, Melissa claims she already has a boyfriend and they are planning on taking it to the next level - marriage.

Pops doesn't believe her but makes her a deal, he will leave her job alone if she gets married, remains married for a year and truly lives as husband and wife. In order to also prove she isn't lying, he wants to meet the said boyfriend by the end of the week.

Panicked, Melissa tries to figure out who she can marry. Her only choice, to save herself and her job is Trevor, the handsome, cocky and arrogant advertising/marketing guru, a man her grandfather also despises.

But living together makes it harder to keep things separate. The get closer and closer, physically and emotionally. What happens when the year is up? You'll definitely need to read to find out. And trust me, this has enough steam and turmoil to make it worth it.
I really enjoyed this quick sexy and funny read. I would give it a 4 stars and highly recommend to others. The characters in the story were well put together and I didn't feel the story was rushed at all even though it was on the shorter side of most books I read. This is the first book I have read by this author but I enjoyed her writing style and will be looking up more books of hers in the near future.

Melissa and Trevor are not enemies.. but they are not fond of one another.. well maybe they know each-other as being attractive but beyond that they try not to cross paths at all cost. But when desperate times cause Melissa to seek desperate measures both of there lives will be upturned. Can Melissa prove to her grandfather that she can be married and keep her job? Can Trevor prove to Melissa once and for all that he is not a bad guy?

Get to one clicking to see what happens, you don't want to miss it!

Part-Time Husband by Noelle Adams is a sweet and romantic love story that was fun to read. Melissa wants to prove something and get a little revenge in the process. So, she asks the one person that her grandfather hates to marry her. Trevor agrees. The marriage is only supposed to last for a year, but pesky feelings show up. The question now is will they figure out that they love each other before they say goodbye? Or will everything end before it begins?

Overall, I liked the story and the plot. When I initially read the blurb, I jumped at the chance to read it. It sounded really good, and it was enjoyable. The way the characters interacted was great. They were spicy together and brought out both the good and the bad in each other. It wasn't a simple love story. That said, there were parts that were repetitive and dragged. It was missing something for me. 

3.5 stars.
I’m feeling warm and relaxed when I finally get out of the bathtub. I usually don’t walk around the apartment unless I’m covered up, but since Trevor isn’t here I just wrap a towel around me. My hair is piled up messily on my head, and I’m carrying my bath salts and soap.
I open the bathroom door and nearly run smack into Trevor.
I give a little squeal and immediately look to make sure my towel is in place. “I didn’t know you were home.”
“I just got back.”
“I was in the bath.”
“I know that.” He’s looking very sexy in that end-of-the-day way he has. Five-o’clock shadow. Slightly loosened tie and collar. Half-lowered eyelids.
God, the man is hot.
“I could smell you as soon as I walked in the door,” he adds, the slightly rough words doing nothing for my flustered state of mind.
“You smelled me?” I’m thinking all kinds of things at the moment, and none of them are suitable to share with the man in front of me.
He reaches over, and I swallow over a quick intake of breath. I think he’s going to touch me. I want him to touch me.
He touches my bath salts instead. “This stuff you put in your bath. I smelled it as soon as I walked in, so I knew you were in the bath.”
It’s perfectly logical. And kind of a disappointment.
His hand moves from the bath salts, and his fingertips slowly trail up my towel to the bare skin at my collarbone. It’s barely a touch, but it makes my skin flush and a pulsing begin between my legs.
“What did you think?” he asks, his voice a little thicker than normal.
“What did I think about what?” I have no idea what he’s talking about. My brain isn’t exactly functioning at the moment.
“What did you think I smelled?”
“I… I didn’t know.”
“I see.”
It feels like he sees.
It feels like he sees all of me.
I’m staring at his plum-colored tie because it’s safer than meeting his eyes right now. I don’t want him to know how I’m feeling, how his touch, his presence is affecting me.
“Are you planning to move out of the doorway? I need to use the bathroom.”
And that’s like a load of bricks on my breathlessness. I’m able to meet his gaze now with a cool expression as I step out of the doorway.
I’m on my way out of the room when he says, “We can return to this particular conversation a little later in bed if you want.”
Damn it.
The asshole knows exactly what I was feeling just now.
Fortunately I’m not feeling it anymore.
“I don’t think so.”
“You sure?”
I turn my head and see him smirking at me, as if he thinks he’s already won.
He hasn’t won.
“Yes, I’m sure. The problem is that any kind of conversation with you involves your infuriating personality, and that just doesn’t work for me.”
“I think it does.”
“You think wrong. And I thought you had to go to the bathroom.”
“I do. We’ll resume this conversation at a later date.”
