Author: Jacquelyn Ayres
Genre: Erotic Romance/Erotic Humor
Charlotte McKendrick is your typical thirty-something stay-at-home mom. She has three beautiful children, a loving family, special friends, and the most wonderful, adoring husband. Her life is a dream.
Er . . . let’s try this again.
Charlotte McKendrick is not your typical thirty-something stay-at-home mom. Yes, she’s got three beautiful children, a loving family (all of them lingerers—you’ll see), and her friends are special, all right! As far as her wonderful, adoring husband, what a joke! That bastard abandoned her and the kids six months ago.
Now, she will do anything she can to survive and provide for her children. Even if it means signing on the dotted line . . .
Mitch Colton is the CEO of Colton Technologies. Most of his year is spent traveling around the world, bringing companies the latest innovations in automobile technology. He doesn’t have time for a traditional relationship and the BS that comes with it. He doesn’t do the “marriage” thing, the “kid” thing, and he certainly doesn’t do the “falling in love” thing. All that said, he still wants someone to come home to. Someone who will offer everything he wants, and nothing he doesn’t. He realizes loyalty paired with these kinds of demands won’t come cheap. No problem. What he doesn’t realize is that once Charlotte McKendrick signs that dotted line, he’ll be paying with a lot more than money.

First off let me just say... I love the synopsis. My first thought on the first paragraph was ok then I got to the "Er... let's try this again" I cracked up and wanted to read Under Contract just from that. I finished reading the synopsis and thought ok sounds good and I jumped in. It was a fresh read for me. I don't think I have read anything like this.
Now on to the characters well lets start with the one no one will like. The ex husband was well... an ass and needs to be beat upside the head. You'll see what I mean as you read it. Then there is the main female led and I loved her from the start. Charlotte was a strong woman and ready to take control of her life and do anything for her kids. What loving mother wouldn't? Then there was the lead male character, Mitch. He was sexy, controlling, rich, and needed some help to learn that it is ok to fall in love. At first I didn't really like him but it only took a few minutes to fall in love with him and want to know what his story was. I have to admit it did surprise me a little. Just a little. Then there are all the side characters in the family that just made the story.
This was a great story that was funny, sexy, and a little sad too. It had me pulled in and wanting to know what was going to happen next and just when you think things are going good something pops up and you are rooting for them to make it work. Great story and the GEG Series lets me know there is more to come and I can't wait to see what happens in the next book.
I am a domestic engineer (born and raised in NJ) whose sole responsibility is to guide three young, impressionable kids into becoming phenomenal adults. This challenging yet rewarding work requires a lot of love (coffee), patience (wine), and determination (periodic exorcisms). I work this magic from the beautiful state of New Hampshire.
Before becoming a domestic goddess (not really), I spent over a decade in the medical field, where I wore more hats than the Queen.
I have loved the written word and the great escape it provides since I was a little girl. When I wasn't reading about people and the places they lived, I was creating my own characters and adventures.
Finding myself again through my writing in The Lost & Found Series, The One, and The GEG Series has been nothing short of a dream come true. Also, it makes people feel better when I laugh randomly or talk to myself, knowing it's my characters and not "the voices" . . . that would be creepy.
