I was provided with an advance reader copy by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Any and all opinions expressed in this review are mine alone. I received no financial incentives to review this book.

Genres: Contemporary Romance
From the polished, pacy, passionate pen of #1 Bestselling author, Alyssa J Montgomery, come a delicious billionaire, a mining heiress, a marriage of convenience and a very inconvenient attraction.
To convince the court that his playboy days are over and to keep a desperate promise, Australian billionaire Logan Jackson needs a wife…fast.
To make her grandfather happy and sway him into making her managing director of the family company, mining heiress Sophie Hamilton needs a husband…fast.
With common goals, similar values, and a very definite end date, there is no reason why Logan and Sophie shouldn't be able to strike a deal to satisfy them both. No reason except that the sizzling attraction arcing between them is too hot to trust.
(This story, although a stand alone read, is a follow-on from Echoes of the Heart)
This was posted last night on my Goodreads page, but I thought I’d pop it up here on the MWR page, just in case!
Here are my thoughts on Roses for Sophie:
I really enjoyed Roses for Sophie. The chemistry was immediate between Logan and Sophie, but entirely believable. One thing I really loved was that they were both from the same social sphere, and of relatively similar wealth, so there was no real power imbalance. I liked that they both understood what each other’s world was like.
Sophie’s fears and vulnerabilities showed me that even the ones we think shouldn’t have anything to worry about are just like the rest of us. I am very much a fan of the dark, damaged billionaire, but I do have to say I really enjoyed that Logan wasn’t one of the moody bunch.
Despite the relative speed with which their romance developed, I understood these two and it made sense to me that they would fall in love like that.
The glimpses of Sydney and the gorgeous Hunter Valley added something special to the story. I will have to go back and read Jake and Amanda’s story now.
