Neither one will admit to there being anything between them except sex. Cia tries Good book. Cia tries to keep her emotions apart as she can't deal with the idea of any more loss in her life.
Her parents' deaths devastated her. She also has a very jaded outlook on marriage because of her work with abused women. She can't believe that Lucas, with his playboy ways, would be truly interested in a real marriage. She is sure he is just in it for the challenge and will soon be bored and move on.

He soon discovered that being with Cia made him want to be a better man. He decided he wanted to make the marriage permanent, but still tried to keep his emotions out of it. I loved the way that he mostly understood Cia and did so many things for her. He did make a couple of mistakes at the end that nearly lost him Cia but finally saw the light and won the day.
I'm looking forward to more books from her, and hope to see one about Lucas's brother Matthew. Feb 01, Desere rated it it was amazing. This is a new author to me but already after reading her book she is and forever will be on my auto-buy list.
The book centred around Cia and Lucas. Cia has it all worked out, she will marry Lucas and get him to divorce her after 6 months and in turn he will get the business deal of a lifetime and she will get her inheritance she so desperately needs to build her shelter for abused woman. Now as easy as that sounds it gets rather difficult when she gets to know the man behind the pretty boy face. Lucas is kind, considerate, compassionate and thoughtful, everything she does not want or need. But yes she at one point decides to let it all go and have a purely sexual relationship with her soon to be ex husband.
After all it is just sex, and yes you can guess that she Marriage with benefits loose her heart to him but the real kicker in this book was how Lucas brings her around and slowly brakes down her defences and get to the real Cia. What I really loved about this read was how the author used Lucas's strong, dominate and raw sexual personality to bring Cia to her knees, but also in the process he helps her to discover herself. Usually books focus on letting the woman being the one to show the man what he can be in life, however the author turned Marriage with benefits tables and brought forth a simply stunning story of romance, letting go and lots of added benefits.
The character of Cia was a strong and passionate woman, not afraid to push in order to get what she wants, but she also had a very vulnerable side that gave her the perfect balance of a modern day woman. The character of Lucas was simply put, the man every woman wants her husband to be. Strong enough to handle anything life throws his way, kind and caring when he needed to be, fun and crazy when Cia needs to be cheered up and also seriously passionate and sexy in and out of bed.
I loved how the author also added in the element of time and definite consideration that Lucas takes for everything he gives and does for Cia. The entire time it had me thinking that this man is such a sweetheart! The dialogue was fun and light but the author also got really deep and emotional thus revealing her characters to me as reader in a exceptionally well written manner. I truly felt connected to both main and secondary characters. I adored how the author also used words like awesome giving the book that much more a modern setting.
There was Marriage with benefits a very and ladies I mean very sexy kitchen scene that believe me when I tell you this is the way you want your husband to come home to you! As reader I also go a glimpse into the life of Lucas's brother Matthew, just enough to definitely peak my interest, and I very much look forward to his story, and based on this first book I know as reader I am in for another compelling and fascinating read. The author also beautifully incorporated a once "dead " home being brought back to life.
The author did a brilliant job at combining fun, sex, love, romance and a crazy but all to sweet hero into one heck of a read. I highly recommend this to all. And watch the charts for Marriage with benefits one will go to the top! I actually don't read a great deal of contemporary romances. Just not my thing. I mean, if there aren't any half-bodied clowns crawling after the heroine and hero or nuclear wasted spiders dropping off buildings, what's the point?
But I went to a booking at Barnes and Noble to support my friend and she was ing with 3 other authors. So I bought one of each of their books, cuz, hey, sitting at a table, hoping someone will make eye-contact is tough. I had the money that day, so why not?
And I actually don't read a great deal of contemporary romances. And if I buy a book, I'm going to read it. So I started with Kat's book, because, uh, it was the thinnest. The premise: Dulciana Allende and Lucas Wheeler make an arrangement to get married so she can outwit her grandpa's stipulation that she has to be married for a year to have access to her trust-fund.
Altruistic reason, she needs the cash to open a woman's shelter. Now we know they are going to fall in love and live happily ever after and stay married. Oh, did I just spoil the ending for you? Come on. It's a contemporary romance.
There's no secret that's how it will end. But dang it, Cia and Lucas suckered me in. Even knowing where they were headed, I got engrossed in their relationship and how they played off each other and guessing who was going to come to the realization of their love first.
Totally hooked and caught up in it and making excuses to stop what I needed to do during the day so I could sneak a few s in throughout the day. And then the fresh writing and unique turn of a phrase. Dang again. Kat Cantrell is a skillful and subtle writer without banging a reader over the head with poetic prose, yet weaving some sentences that are beautiful in their simplicity, delivering exactly what a character is feeling in a way that hasn't been overdone.
I really enjoyed it.Marriage with benefits
