Who’d Have Thought By G. Benson


Fake relationship…this time a marriage between a neurosurgeon and a nurse for reasons not disclosed till rather late in the novel.

Hayden Pérez is struggling financially. She comes across an anonymous ad asking for a wife for a year. The word ‘compensated’ grabs her attention and she answers the ad. At work, she has an intense-dislike-bordering-on-hate feeling with the top neurosurgeon of the city, Samantha Thomson, who in turn probably doesn’t even notice her. When she does meet the person who posted the ad, it turns out to be Samantha. With a huge amount of money being offered, Hayden grabs the offer and now the two have to convince the world that they are so into each other that their marriage at the end of one month doesn’t seem too far-fetched.

The author builds up the growing attraction between Hayden and Samantha (the book is narrated from Hayden’s point of view, so we don’t get to know what Samantha is thinking or feeling at all) realistically, intelligently avoiding the cannot-keep-hands-to-ourselves-despite-dislike attraction.

Big points to the author for: age gap (15 years), pansexual MC (Hayden), gender fluid supporting character (Luce) and an excellent relationship between Hayden and her cat, Frank. A lot of family drama (on both sides) is also included, fleshing out both the MCs a little better. Samantha actually seems to be somewhere on the ASD spectrum with her lack of ability to read people, low emotional involvement and expression, and very, very little touching. Hayden is utterly engaging and charmingly funny.
