An Arrangement of Love by Kenya Wright

Let me start by saying that this is not paranormal. It's a contemporary romance. Their is sex but I don't have to throw anything at the author because while it was sexy, I wasn't drowning in bodily juices like I thought I would be.

Now ...

Jasmine Montgomery is a Harvard University graduate who came from the hood. She's a pretty girl with high hopes for herself and is called for the job of a lifetime, to be the executive assistant to Chase Stone. Chase is, or could have been, the boss from hell, but he had ulterior motives ... Getting Jasmine in bed. She is soon presented with the opportunity to join his unique arrangement. Chase is engaged and has 2 other girlfriends, and he's looking for Jasmine to be number 4 in the house. Unfortunately, to the dismay of the women already there, Chase begins breaking all the rules his fiance have set in place to keep the house, and the women, in line. While Jasmine is going back and forth trying to figure out why she is going along with this horrible arrangement idea, her best friend is sleeping with Jasmine's twin brother ... And that's a story for another day.

Dawn is basically HBIC at the house. She's his fiancee and therefore number 1. I can't remember the order of the other two but I'm guessing Lucy is number 2 because they've been friends for a very long time. She's not with Chase for sex, just companionship. Wendy is an alcoholic and a hypocrite, in my opinion. The previous 3 number 4's have all died or been killed. You'll have to read to find out which one. The mystery of who Jasmine's birth father is has been solved, even though it was a little obvious by the end. I still didn't even think twice about it until the end. Then I went ... Oh eww.

Overall ... It pains me to say that I really liked this novella and am looking forward to the next book because it clearly isn't ending after just this 1. Damn you, Kenya. You make me sick.
