A beautiful, captivating, fun read!

Holland Bakker wasn’t certain about much in her life except, when it comes to watching a man play his guitar at the subway station. For months she was held captivated by the beautiful sounds coming from his guitar. When suddenly her uncle is in need of a musician for his Broadway play, she knows without a doubt Calvin is just the right guy.

Everything is great, right? Calvin lands the job of his dreams and Holland gets to spend time with him. Wrong, one problem, his student visa expire. So, what are two desperate people to do? Get Married of course.

I fell head over heals in love with this story from page one. I loved the story-line and the characters so much. Holland I really, really connected with. I saw myself in her, and reading her story broke my heart. Her self worth and doubt tore at me.

Calvin I loved as well, I did get very upset with him at one point, but that is a good thing, here’s why, it evoked emotions from me. I had happy emotions, sad emotions, and pure love emotions.

What a beautiful and wonderful story.

5 Stars!

From subway to Broadway to happily ever after. Modern love in all its thrill, hilarity, and uncertainty has never been so compulsively readable as in New York Times and #1 international bestselling author Christina Lauren’s (Beautiful Bastard, Dating You / Hating You) new romance.

Marriages of convenience are so…inconvenient.

Rescued by Calvin McLoughlin from a would-be subway attacker, Holland Bakker pays the brilliant musician back by pulling some of her errand-girl strings and getting him an audition with a bigtime musical director. When the tryout goes better than even Holland could have imagined, Calvin is set for a great entry into Broadway—until he admits his student visa has expired and he’s in the country illegally.

Holland impulsively offers to wed the Irishman to keep him in New York, her growing infatuation a secret only to him. As their relationship evolves from awkward roommates to besotted lovers, Calvin becomes the darling of Broadway. In the middle of the theatrics and the acting-not-acting, what will it take for Holland and Calvin to realize that they both stopped pretending a long time ago?
