My Review

LEGALLY WEDDED was straight chick-lit fun! There was fabulous humor, awkward moments, endearingly imperfect characters, and great romance. It was just plain fun and entertaining. Definitely worth grabbing if you're in the mood for laughs and swoon-worthy romance!

So let's talk about this situation or predicament these two characters end up in... It was crazy. Yep. Two people trying to get grants for school deciding to marry each other on paper so that they can get their college degrees. They meet just a few times before desperation wins out. They're both attractive and seem sincere and honest. They both need the same thing, so they just go for it. Cr-a-zy. Then everything blows up on them and gets out of hand. Through it all they find friendship and the possibility of more if they don't screw it all up.

What made this story so enjoyable was that it was hilarious, while also being pretty sizzling (but clean - yay!!) in the romance department, and it had these characters that were so imperfectly perfect and that I totally fell in love with. Was it totally realistic all the time? No. But I still loved it and loved these really sweet moments when the characters were in the moment. There were also some serious emotional parts full of heart and depth that you don't always find in these types of stories, but that make them even better (one part even made me tear up - it takes good writing to get me to do that). The ending left that sweet sigh of contentment that you expect, but still love experiencing every single time. Can't wait to see what Griffith writes next!
