HITCHED 2 by Kendall Ryan
Release Day July 19
Arranged marriage? Check.
Cocky new husband? Check.
It’s a marriage of convenience—one I’m determined to keep strictly professional. I can’t be stupid enough to fall for this sexy playboy’s charm or advances. I have to be strong, even if he is my husband.
Except he has a huge cock with an even bigger ego, and his main goal in life seems to be getting me to stroke both. The arrogant bastard is like sweet, sugary candy for my libido. I know he’s bad for me.
But I want to devour every wicked inch of him.
With his sexual prowess and experience, I know he’ll be explosive in the bedroom. And since we’re stuck together for the foreseeable future—keeping up this marriage charade long enough to turn the company profitable again—I deserve something to look forward to at the end of a long workday, right?
What could one little taste hurt?
This is volume 2 in the Imperfect Love series.
Professional and personal frustrations abound in Hitched 2. Olivia and Noah are pushing forward even after Olivia jilted him at the altar, but both of them are still holding back information that could undo everything they’ve managed to move forward with, including the company they’re fighting for and a relationship that could end up being everything they never knew they wanted.
At the beginning of the text, Noah wants to explore the feelings they have for each other, and Olivia wants to keep things strictly plutonic, despite the Mr. and Mrs. titles they now have. She thinks she has to remain steadfast so that she can protect her heart and save her father’s company without suffering from the mandates that were forced upon her and Noah in order to do it.
It’s supposed to be a marriage of necessity; it’s supposed to be a marriage without feelings because Olivia can’t deal with the fallout emotions would cause, and she definitely doesn’t see this marriage as her happily ever after. But despite Olivia’s protests against being intimate or allowing her feelings to become part of the equation, Noah’s plan to woo her…to win her over and force her to let her guard down is working, but when Olivia finds out about an important clause in their fathers’ will, all of Noah’s hard work may be for naught because the only thing she sees is betrayal.
Noah Tate has definitely shown Olivia and readers the caring and passionate man he can be if only she would let him completely in and acknowledge that what they can have is so much more than a marriage that, on paper, is only a business transaction.
At the end of Hitched 2, Noah still has his work cut out for him, but Kendall Ryan has done a great job of illustrating his growth throughout the first two books, so I have faith that Noah will do what needs to be done to not only claim his bride but also keep Tate & Cane in their rightful hands.
Imperfect Love is the perfect title for Noah and Olivia’s story – they’re opposites in so many aspects of their lives, but those differences/imperfections allow them to mesh well at the office and in the bedroom.
Kendall Ryan always does a great job of fusing just the right amount of humor, steam, and drama into fast paced storylines. The banter between Noah and Olivia is charming and witty from the start and their chemistry sizzles on every page, allowing readers to see how good this imperfect couple could be if only they’d both get out of their own way!

4.5 Poison Apples
“What’s wrong?” I ask.
“Just a little tight, is all.”
I inhale through my nose. I have to shove the pregnancy stuff to the back corner of my brain. We’re a long way off from Olivia letting me pump her full of my semen anyhow, so why am I stressing about it now? The first step is showing her how compatible we can be.
And that starts now.
I smile at her. “Sit tight. I’ll be right back.”
I grab a bottle of massage oil from the hall closet and return to the living room. The soft jazz music seems to float in the air, creating a pleasant buzz in the atmosphere.
Olivia’s eyes widen when I rejoin her on the couch, but she doesn’t question me.
“I’ll give you a massage,” I suggest. “Take off your sweatshirt.”
Olivia flinches, chewing on her lip while she watches me. “But I’m not wearing anything underneath.”
That’s the idea. “I promise not to look.”
She hesitates for another second, then turns her back to me and pulls her shirt over her head, dropping it to the floor. The creamy canvas in front of me is one to be admired. The twin dimples in her lower back near the band of her leggings would make lesser men weep.
I warm a few drops of oil between my palms and rest my hands on her stiff shoulders.
Marry the girl I’ve had a crush on my whole life? Check.
Inherit a hundred-billion-dollar company? Check.
Produce an heir… Wait, what?
I have ninety days to knock up my brand-new fake wife. There’s only one problem—she hates my guts.
And in the fine print of the contract? The requirement that we produce an heir.
She can’t stand to be in the same room with me. Says she’ll never be in my bed.
But I’ve never backed down from a challenge and I’m not about to start now.
Mark my words—I’ll have her begging for me, and it won’t take ninety days.
On the heels of her smash hit and New York Times bestselling SCREWED series, Kendall Ryan brings you HITCHED, a romantic comedy that delivers heart and heat. A NYC playboy turned business mogul has ninety days to win over the woman he’s always desired in order to save his father’s company. One tiny problem: She hates his guts.
