AshleyNicole has created this amazing fake town, Preto Village, where the characters know all the other character’s business. The older residents are messy and judgmental, and the younger residents are fictional best friends you wished you could meet. Let’s Get Married is a story about a marriage of convenience. Zach and Maali are Preto’s Simba and Nylah. They were groomed to be together, but like most kids, they don’t want the person their parents have decided they should be with. As the story unfolds readers can see that their marriage may have started out as a marriage of convenience, but these two characters were destined to be together. In this blog post I’m going to share my five reasons that Zach and Maali belonged together. So, if you haven’t read this book and spoilers aren‘t your thing, now would be a good time to head out.
1. They really liked each other, they only didn’t hook up because their moms wanted them to.
The truth of the matter was that Maali– for me– really was the only option in Preto. And if everybody wasn't so hellbent on getting us together, I probably would have made a move a long time ago. She was literally the exact opposite of every woman I'd ever been with, but that freshman psych class I took in college reared its ugly head, and I realized that was on purpose. I made sure none of the ladies I'd been with resembled her because she was actually my type.
2. They had similar personality traits.
The irony of us being so similar was never lost on me. In truth, we probably would make a good couple. We both preferred our business to be private. Had similar temperaments. Hell, we got along. It was something to think about.
3. They were genuinely attracted to each other.
I think over the years, I spent so much time trying not to look at Zach, which could be the only reason I didn't realize how cute he was. I mean, my husband was fucking gorgeous. And that was with his clothes on. I'd seen him a handful of times shirtless, and sheesh, that shit was drool-worthy
4. Their sexual chemistry was off the charts.
I’d had good dick, but this… this was not just good dick. This was phenomenal dick. Add the kisses and his roving hands all over my nipples and between my legs, and we had a very entertaining party. So entertaining that I told him to remove the condom.
5. Even after the marriage wasn’t a marriage of convenience anymore, their feelings were still there.
I don’t know how to explain it, but it was during those times that I really felt he was my husband. MY husband. Not just the husband I married to procreate with. I felt like this relationship was a real relationship. Like he courted me. Was my boyfriend. My fiancé– for longer than a week– and my husband. I never told him this, of course. I wasn’t even sure how to rationalize it in my mind.
This book is book two in a three book series. Each book can be read as a standalone, but would be more enjoyable if all books are read. To check out the other books in the series, just click the pic below.
