A tyrant by day, a playboy by night. That is the reputation that precedes Richard VanRyan. He lives life the way he wants, no concern for the opinion of others. He cares for no one, is completely unrepentant, and he has no desire to change his ways.
Katharine Elliott works under Richard as his PA. She despises him and his questionable ethics, but endures all the garbage he sends her way, because she needs the job. Her end goal is far more important than the daily abuse and demands she tolerates from her nasty tyrant of a boss.
Until the day, he asks her for something she never expected. A new role with a personal contractâ fiancÃ©e instead of PA.
What happens when two people who loathe each other, have to live together and act as though they are madly in love?
Thatâs what happens.
Can the power of love really change a person?
Will they survive the contract?
What do you do when the one person you hate the most becomes the one person you canât live without?
The Contract by Melanie Moreland
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Ever so often there comes a book so perfectly written that it lingers with you long after youâve finished reading it. The Contract was indeed one of those books. I laughed, cried, yelled, cheered, and wanted to throw my Nook across the room because of this story. The characters are beautifully crafted, full of depth and flaws that made them feel as though they were right there in the room with me. I ached for Katy and want to slap the crap out of Richard, yet I was compelled to like him. I wanted him to change and enjoyed watching his transformation as the story progressed. The story ebbed and flowed with such perfect precision that it was impossible for me to put it down. I didnât want it to end, and when it did, I walked away satisfied with its ending. There is a realism to Melanieâs work that captures the emotions of life. She is a master of prose and brings poetry to her characters. This is a book I highly recommend reading. It will tug at your heartstrings and leave you wanting more. View all my reviews
Melanie Moreland lives a happy and content life in a quiet area of Ontario with her beloved husband of twenty-six-plus years. Nothing means more to her than her friends and family, and she cherishes every moment spent with them.
Known as the quiet one with the big laugh, Melanie works at a local university and for its football team. Her job, while demanding, is rewarding as she cheers on her team to victory.
While seriously addicted to coffee, and highly challenged with all things computer-related and technical, she relishes baking, cooking, and trying new recipes for people to sample. She loves to throw dinner parties, and also enjoys travelling, here and abroad, but finds coming home is always the best part of any trip.
Melanie delights in a good romance story with some bumps along the way, but is a true believer in happily ever after. When her head isnât buried in a book, it is bent over a keyboard, furiously typing away as her characters dictate their creative storylines to her, often with a large glass of wine keeping her company.
