Peek Inside The Marriage Agenda

Senate-hopeful Knox Hamilton needs to lose his playboy reputation and gain a wife--and there's only one woman for the job: Chloe Lochlan. Her career as a reporter is on the line and she needs a big story, but Knox's offer of marriage chills her to the bone. He already crushed her heart once and she has no intention of letting it happen again. But the offer could help land her the story of a lifetime. When the truth she uncovers threatens to destroy the man she still loves, will she bury the story...or his career?

Knox Hamilton needs a wife. With his father's recently vacated Senate seat up for grabs, he has to lose his playboy reputation and fast. There’s just one problem—there's only one woman he's willing to share his life with...and she wants nothing to do with him.

The last thing Chloe Lochlan needs is her ex crashing her blind date, especially when it’s to propose. Knox already crushed her heart once and she has no intention of letting it happen again. But when he makes her an offer she can’t refuse, she finds herself with a diamond ring and DC’s most eligible bachelor. But just when she thinks this business-only relationship is a win for everyone, something unexpected happens...

What do you get when you have a politician who says he can't love and a reporter who wants a happily ever after life? Well you get Sarah's new book! I immediately fell in love with this book. The complex of the main character's was amazing, and you were easily able to connect with them. So does the ...more

Received an ARC for review from NetGalley

Read the blurb and thought this might be a good one. Boy was it ever. Great read, a little mystery, lots of romance, and hawt sex. Great characters and chemistry and story. I think the peeping tom, Toby, needs his own HEA. ...more

Simply fabulous.I thoroughly enjoyed Knox and Chloe romance. I had several laugh out loud moments and man I even have favorite lines.

What a thoughtful ass (I so identified with this line here…have this thought many a times about the love of my life. Bawhahahaa)

“What is it you don’t want me to do?”

By Samantha August 06, 2014

I insanely loved this book. Add a politician who has a family legacy being in politics and thanks to his father knows he can't love, and a reporter who only sees the man not the reporter, not the name, but the man who just wants happily ever after.

After a year....Chloe feels she has let go of Knox ...more

Entangled Publishing sent me a list of books to read for review and this one stood out because of the cover. I love a man in a suit. Yum! But it was the synopsis that really sold me. I'm all about fake to real relationship stories.
The characters were the best part of this book. Knox Hamilton is not ...more

Chloe Lochlan is on the hunt for the story that will make her career. Being a political journalist in Washington is like being just another fish in the sea, but she has the drive to sniff out the next big break. Her friends decide that it's time for her to move on from her almost year long heartbrea ...more

I had expectations from the synopsis leading into this story, but I have to say, they were quickly blown out of the water. The synopsis may make you think “oh another marriage of convenience” But Nope, not your usual MOC book at all.

I LOVED Knox from the moment we meet him in the book. Yes at times ...more

Reseña en español:

Received an ARC copy provided by Entangled Publishing in exchange for an honest review.

I really liked this story, to be honest I didn´t expected I would, but I was surprised, it's one of those nice, romantic and easy to read stories.

By Kirsten August 11, 2014

This was a fantastic read from start to finish. I loved Chloe's ability to pull herself together and get things done. Knox frustrated me, because he so obviously wanted Chloe, but wasn't willing to admit he had any sort of feelings for her whatsoever. Chloe did what she thought was best and went int ...more

This is the first free e-book I have received in advance for review and I was pleasantly surprised. My expectations were low but I thoroughly enjoyed it. The male protagonist was a politician in Washington DC, whic ...more

The Marriage Agenda was delightful from start to finish. Once I started reading it, I couldn't put it down.

Due to her lack of love life, down-on-her-luck reporter Chloe lets her BFF set her up on a blind date. Who does she bump into? Her gorgeous ex, Knox, who's desperate to fill his disgraced fath ...more

By Erin August 05, 2014

To be honest, I only requested this book because I liked the sound of the plot and I was in the mood for a romance kind of read or something along those lines. But surprisingly, this book was not at all what I was expecting (which was a good thing in this case) and I actually ended up really, really ...more

By Tonette August 18, 2014

Sarah Balance has taken a turn in her writing to try a more, shall we say, erotic approach. She has managed to create a modern-day old-fashioned bodice –ripper. It has all the makings, with a strong, beautiful woman, a man who is rich, strong, handsome and powerful in and out of the bedroom. If you ...more

By Robin August 09, 2014

This book provoked so many emotions I don't know where to start. I wasn't sure what I would think about a book about politicians, but it was fantastic. I kept yelling at both Chloe and Knox throughout the book hoping each would wake up see what I could see about each of them. I felt that this book t ...more

*ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review*

A marriage of convenience when one is already invested? Honesty in politics? Hmmm...great premise and the book delivers. Know and Chloe are bot complex characters with hidden depths and unrealized agendas. What you see is not necessarily what you ...more

I flat out loved this book! It’s entertaining and easy to read. It’s sexy and oh, so hot! I loved the characters and the dialogue between Knox and Chloe.

By Angy November 24, 2014

the story was ok. but i found the characters sexually obsessed. kind of nymphomaniacs. but the end part good. thats y i gave it 4 stars. in the end the single mindedly focused hero risks his career for the heroine. which was quiet impressive , i must say. n he finally realises that ofcourse he can l ...more

By Shannon August 18, 2014

This book drew me in from the start. The chemistry between Chloe and Knox is sizzling, and the story was fantastically written. Add in the fact that he's an alpha denying he can love anyone and she is a strong willed reporter who knows what she wants, and you've got the perfect book. There are a few ...more

Enjoyable quick read. (Less than 200 pages)

By Monica October 17, 2014

A family name is just that a name but a woman that you can’t think about not having by your side is love whether you want to realize it or not.

I like reading a story that I can read in one sitting. Then the other part that I liked was that I really didn’t have to do too much thinking just enjoy the ...more

By Melissa March 18, 2015

For this review, I read The Marriage Agenda by Sarah Ballance, which was my first book by this author.

Chloe was dumped by Knox because he did not want to commit to her. I think it was fear. Fear that he will be like his father. Fear that he would treat his wife like his father treated his mother. Kn ...more
