Book Review - Wife In Name Only by Hayson Manning

Trapped in a loveless marriage, Zoe Hughes escaped to make a new life for herself on the tiny island of Tonga. Now she runs a successful boutique honeymoon resort. Selling true love is easy. No one needs to know she's married in name only. At least until America’s premier honeymoon magazine wants to publish a feature on her perfect marriage. Now she must convince her estranged husband to rip himself away from plotting corporate takeovers in LA to save her island paradise.

Rory agrees to come for forty-eight hours, but only because he needs the positive PR. To his surprise, the wife he finds in Tonga isn’t the same woman he married. Now she’s so much more…

When a storm strands Rory in Tonga, will he win back his wife or leave paradise empty-handed?


 In Wife In Name Only  we  follow Zoe  and Rory Hughes , I  loved both of these characters ! It was wonderful getting to  know more about them , the things that  motivated  them ,  there flaws ,  strengths ,there good times & there bad time together  .When you find out  more  about there marriage and why it  fell apart it  felt  very realistic . There were seriously  times in the book where I would think  omg how are they going work through there problems!!  they are  perfect for each other!! but the obstacles!! lol .Watching Zoe and Rory reconnect and seeing there  relationship   change from beginning to end  of this story was wonderful.

I loved that the setting  of  this story was the island that the  honeymoon resort was located on .  The description alone  gave you  a vivid  picture of  what the place looked like (and let  me tell you   it was beautiful) . You also  got  see a little of what life on  this island was like , we a got know about the locals  ,  the traditions , the festivities  and  that was all such  fun to read about Tonga. Seeing Zoe  and Rory go  around   taking  pictures  for  the honey moon resort brochure  was so cute  . Also  you  got to meet the Zoe's adorable dog Cinderella . I wanted to  reach into  the book  and  cuddle her  when I read about the abuse  that poor dog went through with  her previous owner. (I also wanted to punch the previous owner )

This book  was  so good . It was funny,  romantic , emotional , steamy and  just  a pleasure to read from begging to end  and if you love all of these  things  in your  books  I suggest you  pick up  a copy.

4.5/5 Stars
