The Contract by Melanie Moreland

Available Now!


A tyrant by day, a playboy by night. That is the reputation that precedes Richard VanRyan. He lives life the way he wants, no concern for the opinion of others. He cares for no one, is completely unrepentant, and he has no desire to change his ways.

Katharine Elliott works under Richard as his PA. She despises him and his questionable ethics, but endures all the garbage he sends her way, because she needs the job. Her end goal is far more important than the daily abuse and demands she tolerates from her nasty tyrant of a boss.

Until the day, he asks her for something she never expected. A new role with a personal contract — fiancée instead of PA.

What happens when two people who loathe each other, have to live together and act as though they are madly in love?


That’s what happens.

Can the power of love really change a person?

Will they survive the contract?

What do you do when the one person you hate the most becomes the one person you can’t live without?

My Review:

This was my first book by Melanie Moreland, I was drawn in by the storyline, I love a good enemies to lovers read, and this was certainly that, in fact I think its one of the best I’ve read!!

Richard VanRyan has been passed over for partner by his firm, he’s not best pleased and wants to move to a rival firm to piss-off his boss, but the new company is nothing like his old company, it is very family orientated where people work together and then spend time together when not at work, this is not Richard at all. Richard is a playboy, hot, sexy, excellent at his job, but is cold, callous, unemotional, demanding, and generally a massive douchbag!! So Richard must convince this new company that he has changed his ways due to finding love with a woman, but he knows no one who fits the bill, until a colleague suggests his PA!!

Katherine/Katy Elliott is the perfect PA, hard working, efficient, does everything she is asked, loved and admired by everyone, and goes above and beyond for her asshole boss.

“My assistant – Katharine Elliott – the bane of my existence. I’d done everything I could to get rid of her, but I’d never had any luck. No matter what task I gave her, she completed it.”

Katy is stuck working for Richard, needing the money for her sick aunt, nearly all her paycheck goes towards her care, while she lives in second hand clothes and eats hardly anything.

Richard comes up with the plan to pay Katy for being his fiance, just long enough to get him this new job, then they can split up and she can move on.

I really enjoyed the story, how we see mega-douche Richard, who I really wanted to slap in the beginning, slowly change as he falls for Katy. I enjoyed Katy’s transformation also, as she comes out of her shell and sticks up for herself with Richard, but also you see all the little ways in which she is helping Richard and they end up working as a team instead of against each other. Yes its cheesy at times and a bit fluffy, its also angsty and emotional, so you get a real good mix in this story. I loved the push and pull between the two main characters and how they slowly changed to suit each others needs, without realising it.

Told from a dual point of view, which I think really adds to the story, as you get to see both viewpoints, which is really needed to appreciate a storyline like this.

A great read, thoroughly enjoyable from start to finish, I highly recommend you give it a go!

My Review:

This is a really short novella that follows on from The Contract, which should really be read first.

I’m so glad this was written!! This was just adorable to see Richard and Katy as parents, as their baby arrives into the world. Absolutely loved this, it was very swoon worthy from Richard, just so very heartwarming to read how their life is a few months down the road.

A perfect ending for the couple!!




Melanie Moreland – Bio:

New York Times/USA Today bestselling author Melanie Moreland, lives a happy and content life in a quiet area of Ontario with her beloved husband of twenty-seven-plus years and their rescue cat Amber. Nothing means more to her than her friends and family, and she cherishes every moment spent with them.

While seriously addicted to coffee, and highly challenged with all things computer-related and technical, she relishes baking, cooking, and trying new recipes for people to sample. She loves to throw dinner parties, and also enjoys travelling, here and abroad, but finds coming home is always the best part of any trip.

Melanie delights in a good romance story with some bumps along the way, but is a true believer in happily ever after. When her head isn’t buried in a book, it is bent over a keyboard, furiously typing away as her characters dictate their creative storylines to her, often with a large glass of wine keeping her company.
