This book was not at all what I expected. If you expected the actual Carnival (like I did), you will be disappointed. Strong female character? Likeable male protagonist? Healthy love story? Nope. There is none of that.
Dude (Kaleb) went to girl's (Mallory) real father and asked him to marry her. He said ok, and asked how much will he pay him for her. They made a deal, he called some random naked girl to pretend to be Mallory for the wedding. I think they had sex on the floor then. I could be wrong tho...
Anyway...did I mention that Mallory has no idea that she is married to a guy who she met like a week ago? Now if that's not romantic, then I don't know what tvu luv is!
Oh, I forgot to mention that part of the deal is a child! She has one year to get pregnant. How sweet! She will be so happy when she finds out that she's been married and that she needs to pop out a baby ASAP!
Yeah. That's the actual plot of this book.
