ARC Review --> The Marriage Contract (The O'Malleys, #1) by Katee Robert

Title: The Marriage Contract
Series: The O’Malleys, #1
Author: Katee Robert
Out Now
Rating: 3.5 stars


New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Katee Robert begins a smoking hot new series about the O'Malley family-wealthy, powerful, dangerous and seething with scandal.

Teague O'Malley hates pretty much everything associated with his family's name. And when his father orders him to marry Callista Sheridan to create a "business" alliance, Teague's ready to tell his dad exactly where he can stuff his millions. But then Teague actually meets his new fiancée, sees the bruises on her neck and the fight still left in her big blue eyes, and vows he will do everything in his power to protect her.

Everyone knows the O'Malleys have a dangerous reputation. But Callie wasn't aware just what that meant until she saw Teague, the embodiment of lethal grace and coiled power. His slightest touch sizzles through her. But the closer they get, the more trouble they're in. Because Callie's keeping a dark secret-and what Teague doesn't know could get him killed.


The author does a great job at pulling you into the story, but after the half way mark I got a little bored.

There are a few things that I liked about the book:
1.         I liked that it’s about mob families.
2.       I liked the arranged marriage part of the book. I like to watch them fall in love.
3.       Love that Teague has a huge family.
And of course there are somethings that I didn’t care or like about the book.
1.         One of the things that really aggravated was that Teauge wasn’t Alpha enough. Don’t get me wrong, he was a little alpha, but he wasn’t up there to where I liked my male leads.
2.       I couldn’t connect to the mc.
3.       I honestly just couldn’t connect to the characters.
When I say I couldn’t really connect to the characters, that’s what I mean. The book was just lacking something, and I can’t quite put my finger on it.

Overall, the book fell a bit flat for me. I liked the premise of the book, but no connection equals me one unsatisfied reader.

The end of this book set you up for the next book, which I must say sounds wonderful. I can’t wait for it to come out.
