Romance Review: Imprisoned by a Vow by Annie West

Imprisoned by a Vow

Signed, sealed…forever! Being sold into marriage by her stepfather is Leila’s one chance to escape. But instead of freedom, Leila finds herself bound by deep passions ignited by her inscrutable new husband.
Australian billionaire Joss Carmody knows the rules of this game–he’ll shower his new wife with diamonds and in return he’ll use her land to expand his business. That’s all he ever wanted from this exchange, but he hadn’t banked on the attraction Leila awakens.
Then the one night that was supposed to slake their desire, binds them beyond the signatures on their marriage contract…

I loved Leila, because she knows when to fight and when to just pretend and her life was a mess before this wedding, but I loved how she never gave up and kept her head up just thinking about the better days in her future. Her stepfather controlled her life and kept her locked up, but the worst part for me was the fact he sold her. He gave a good name like marriage but everyone knew exactly what it was.
Joss decided to marry without love because he didn’t want a nightmare relationship like his parents had, but he was never aware of Leila’s condition and only thought she was a docile wife with great connections. I actually loved this couple because Joss was really good to Leila and after he realized something was wrong he kept pushing to know the truth and make things right.
Leila was a mess after the wedding but kept on fighting and Joss realized she needed  a little distraction sometimes, their relationship changed after a few great kisses, but I loved these two together. The ending was not the best for me, but I understand they needed to grow a little apart.
