Terms and Conditions by Lauren Asher Review

Synopsis:

Declan
I’m destined to become the next CEO of my family’s media empire.
The only problem? My grandfather’s inheritance clause.
Fulfilling his dying wish of getting married and having an heir seemed impossible until my assistant volunteers for the job.
Our marriage was supposed to be the perfect solution to my biggest problem.
But the more we act in love for the public, the more unsure I feel about our contract.
Caring about Iris was never part of the deal.
Especially not when breaking her heart is inevitable.

Iris
My plan to marry Declan was simple in theory.
Move in together. Throw a wedding. Have a baby.
We set rules to prevent any kind of issues.
Ones that were never meant to be broken, no matter how much Declan tempts me.
But what happens when our fake relationship bleeds into our real one?
Falling in love was never an option.
At least not for me.

Then this is the book for you!

Just like book one, I was instantly captivated by this book.

Declan is the oldest of the Kane brothers and is on his way to securing his position of becoming the CEO is Dreamland after his grandfather passed away by getting married and having a child. The only problem is that he’s callous and doesn’t believe in love after growing up taking the brunt of his father’s abuse to protect his brothers. So he is looking for a woman that is willing to marry him and have a child, and is about to go to his engagement party to meet his almost fiancé when she bails out on him.

Iris, Declan’s assistant for three years acts in the moment and steps in to become his future bride because she’s helped him for so long and have seen him work hard for his position.

Iris is one of the few people who can tolerate Declan’s personality and works above and beyond to make sure that everything is perfect for him and has a big part in his job, and despite his cold demeanor, she loves to see those moments where he shows a sliver of emotion and knows that she’s willing to take on this responsibility and play that part of a loving couple knowing that she’ll be safe because he doesn’t do relationships.

Iris and Declan have rules to their fake marriage but it boils down to that this a marriage of convenience where Iris is helping out Declan, and there won’t be any emotional attachments. That is until they start falling for the other and lines are blurred.

But, Declan is reluctant to go into a relationship because of his years of avoiding relationships because of his father, and Iris’s for past relationships where men have put her down.

Declan starts to see that he can’t live without Iris being in his life and is willing to turn this fake relationship into something real, but will many years of being set in his perspective on life being so dreary make him capable of loving someone so full of life?

Iris has always struggled in life with her dyslexia and the lasting effects of past relationships of her own in combination with growing up with an abusive father, so she’s more than hesitant to do anything other than the fake marriage with Declan, but he gets her and picks up on the little things that most don’t which makes it harder for her to resist him despite the red flags.

Iris has flipped Declan’s life with her love for plants and bright colors and her endless energy despite putting so much time and effort into her job making Declan’s exterior crack.

Dare I say that I love this book more than the fine print? Don’t get me wrong, I love the other book, but with Declan and Iris knowing and working with each other prior to the start of the book, it was a lot easier for me to fall into their story, plus there was a lot more of Cal. And with that, all I can say is that I am more than ready for his book because based on his parts in this book, my prediction is that he will be my favorite Kane brother.
