5 Stars to WORK IN PROGRESS by Staci Hart!

I never thought my first kiss would be on my wedding day.
But here I stand, clutching a bouquet of pale pink roses behind the doors of a Las Vegas chapel, and at the end of the aisle is the absolute last man I imagined would be waiting for me.
Thomas Bane.
Bestselling author. Notorious bad boy. Savagely handsome, dark as sin, chiseled as stone. And somehow, my soon-to-be husband.
Marry him, and I’ll land my dream job. Save him, and I’ll walk away with everything I’ve ever wanted. All I have to do is remember it’s all for show. None of it is real, no matter how real it feels.
But first, I have to survive the kiss.
And with lips like his, I don’t stand a chance.

I never thought my first kiss would be on my wedding day.

Marriage of convenience troupes... oh how I love thee. A rom-com from Staci Hart with this troupe, it just made it all the better. After reading Player last year, I wasn't sure any of the other RLC books could top it, but I loved this one just as much. It was different, but just as wonderful. Tommy and Amelia were everything.

Amelia is the shy bookworm of her friends. She's a little backwards and socially awkward, but she's amazing. When she meets Thomas Bane at a book signing, she comes out of her shell some. Thomas brings that out of her at their first meeting. He's a best selling author who is having major writers block and needs someone willing to help him with his book. Someone who isn't afraid to be critical and tell him what's not working. That someone is Amelia. Amelia agrees, but this arrangement turns into so much more than either one of them ever expected.

Tommy's 'bad boy' behavior has him on the outs with his publisher. He needs something huge to get him out of the hole he's in with them. Something that will make him look different to the public. A marriage to a sweet girl could be just what he needs. It turns out, this arrangement works out perfectly for the both of them.
“Admit it, Melia. We’re good together.”
“You are a mess.”
“I know I am. And you balance me.”
“Babysit you.” I shrugged.
“Same thing. And I make you brave.” She chuckled.
“That’s true.”

You will fall in love with both Tommy and Amelia, mark my words. Amelia is genuine, kind, shy, sweet, and pure. She's the best kind of person. Then there is Tommy. Tommy is so different than he appears. On the outside, he's a bad boy, he's a rouge. But Thomas Bane is hiding something. And that something is his humongous heart. Tommy is an amazing man. He's giving, loving, and has a heart of gold. There was absolutely nothing I didn't love about this couple or this book.

Work in Progress has romance, passion, steam, and laughs. It's a beautiful and fun story that is heartwarming and has no unnecessary drama or angst which I appreciated. Staci Hart really brings it with this one. Tommy and Amelia's story was amazing and I couldn't have loved it more. And that little sneak peak into Katherine's book... I am literally dying for it. DYING. Do yourself a favor and pick this one up. I would recommend this one to all lovers of romance. I can't imagine anyone not loving this book!
“You are everything.” The words were reverent, her eyes open and bright. “You’re everything I could ever want, all I could hope for."
