REVIEW : Neutral Grounds by Jiffy Kate


First comes marriage, then comes…love? Divorce? Let’s pretend this never happened …

They say opposites attract and that couldn’t be truer when it comes to CeCe and Shep. But what happens when the two most anti-marriage people in the French Quarter start enjoying the act?


I never planned on getting married. After my dad deserted my family the day before my tenth birthday, and I watched my mother fall to pieces over him, I decided it wasn’t worth the heartache. Then Shepard Rhys-Jones, who ghosted me two years ago, declares he needs to marry someone to claim his inheritance, and I drunkenly offer myself up as his wife.

He was the best I’ve ever had and now, he’s all mine… but only for the next year.


I never planned on getting married. It was one business transaction I had no desire to close. Yet, here I am… sitting in a bar in New Orleans… seriously considering making CeCe Calhoun my wife. If we can manage to stay married for a year, I’ll be one hundred million dollars richer and finally have the freedom to forge my own path, separate from the Rhys-Jones name.

She’s the only woman I’ve struggled to forget, and she’s finally mine. For now.

Is it possible for this fake marriage to be real?

He’s shirtless, only wearing plaid pajama bottoms, and he’s reading a freaking book.

my review

I couldn’t get enough of CeCe and Shep. I loved everything about their story. The chemistry and the banter between the two of them was fantastic and I didn’t want it to end.

Shep isn’t one for relationships, so when he has to marry to get his inheritance the last person he would ever expect volunteers, CeCe. CeCe has been hurt in the past, even by Shep after one amazing weekend together. However, they can’t avoid each other forever since the are part of the same close circle of friends.

What started out as just a one year business deal turned into so much more. Shep’s growth throughout the story was the biggest of any other character, the realizations he had over relationships and his connection with CeCe were amazing. I was really cheering for them the entire story.

This book was full of laughs, romance, hilarious banter, and plenty of steam. Definitely another MUST READ from Jiffy Kate!
