Part-Time Husband (Trophy Husbands, #1)Part-Time Husband by Noelle Adams
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Let's try this again. I wrote a pretty lengthy review and it disappeared. Part-time Husband is the first in a new series by Noelle Adams that approaches the trophy spouse story from a different perspective, the woman's family is wealthy instead of the man's. Melissa has worked hard from the bottom of Pop's (her grandfather's company) to her current leadership role. Despite her education and the great work she does for the organization she has struggled with getting Pop to see her as an equal. Not only is Pop cantankerous but he is also chauvinistic. He shows his attitude towards woman no more than when he complains about her not being married. He blames the number of hours she works for the company and delivers an ultimatum, Melissa gets married or he will cut her job as well as delivering a threat against her sisters who are not so independent. Melissa decides she will find a husband and to spite Pop she will choose the very person he would not want her to marry.

Trevor was very successful when he worked in New York City. He has returned to his hometown and started his own company. He tried to get a contract with Pops for creating their marketing campaigns. Things did not go so well and he is not Pop's favorite person. He is surprised when Melissa proposes to him and lays down her plan for the next year which would allow Trevor to get a bit of payback for how Pop treated him. Part-Time husband was a sweet love story which gives the reader an enjoyable glance into how Melissa and Trevor grow as friends, a family and a couple. I really look forward to reading more in this series.
