Crowne of Lies by CD Reiss
Genre: marriage of convenience romance
Publisher: self published
Publication Date: February 28, 2020
Rating: ★★★ 1/2
This story had me excited af because I am a sucker for marriage of convenience romances. I live for the slow burn and the angst which this story had in spades. I adored the banter and build up between Ella and Logan because it was delicious from start to finish.
While I live for the banter CD creates, I unfortunately couldn’t connect to any of these charcaters. I wanted to know them deeply, thoroughly because both of them were extremely fascinating. I think if I just got a little more about what drives these two, my reading experience would have been other worldly.
I was invested in the story as I was rooting for them both to get a HEA. I couldn’t put it down because it was written in such a captivating way. I have to say I am really looking forward to Dante’s book because he has been so mysterious and just I love a good mystery.

Logan Crowne needs one year from Ella.
Twelve months living in his house, holding his hand, wearing his ring on her finger, and in exchange, she’ll get her father’s company in the divorce settlement.
They have one year to convince his skeptical parents that they’re happily in love, and he’s settled enough to run Crowne Industries.
Ella wants the company badly enough to live with a man who will never love her. She’ll sleep in his room and kiss him for show.
Her heart may melt whenever he’s around, and his touch may ignite a fire inside her, but surrender will break her heart.
She’s sure she can last a year without giving him her body.
