Mmmm, deep breath. Writing this review is a little frustrating in the same way this story was more than a little frustrating for me - I found it very painfully slow paced, repetitive. But I didn’t hate it.
Does that make any sense? Emmeline and WIlliam married quickly and without any declarations of love, due to weird family bullshit (E’s grandfather) , so she would get to live in a family house she loved and to help Will rise higher up in his career by being the perfect wife. Eight years later - they’re in partnership, not a marriage, And not even a close partnership, but go back because there was the stipulation that the couple residing in the family home must procreate within 5 years, which Emmeline has managed to delude herself into thinking that she would somehow never actually need to produce the children she wrote to her family that she and Will had and were raising. She and Will decide to borrow children to pose as their offspring.
Final thoughts, don’t go into this expecting a romance, that’s not what this one is.
Not a recommendation, not not one either.
