Her future is already set - Maybe Yes (Maybe #1) by Ella Miles

18+ "This is an easy book to jump into and get lost in! I really, really, REALLY enjoyed this one. While I am not a huge fan of romantic suspense, I will definitely be continuing the series as this one was GOOD! EEEEPP! I love when an author can turn my mind in a different direction than what I am used to. This is exactly what happened when I read this one and I can’t wait to see what happens next! "- Goodreads, Elle


Published: March 18th, 2016

Her future is already set, all she has to do is marry a complete stranger.

Kinsley Felton has everything. Money, a loving family, and a modeling career. She graduates from Yale in just days, but unlike a typical college student she doesn’t have to spend hours looking for a job when she graduates. Kinsley will inherit the multi-billion dollar gaming and hospitality company her great-grandfather started. The only problem is she has to do everything her family asks for in order to get that money. That includes marrying a man of her family’s choosing. That’s not a problem since Kinsley has been following her family’s orders all her life. Until a phone call from her grandfather changes everything.

Will she marry the man her family chooses or will she decide her own future?

I just don’t know what I want. 

I think of everything I’ve been told I want—money, clothes, a modeling career, an acting career, and an intelligent husband who will run the company in order to give me even more money. But not one of those things has ever made me happy. I try to think about things that have made me happy—my family and Scarlett. But that leaves me with fewer answers. 
I know what I don’t want. 
I don’t want a modeling career. 
I don’t want an acting career. 
I don’t want to marry a complete stranger. 

I try to think of my happiest memory with my dad. It was on my eighteenth birthday. It coincided with my high school graduation. He took me to a casino in California, one I could legally gamble at. He taught me how to play blackjack and how to count cards. We won—a lot. It wasn’t the winning that made it fun. It was learning something from my father. It was the confidence he displayed in me when he gave me high amounts of money to place a bet that I would win because I was capable. It was one of the only times I felt he was proud of me for something other than my looks. 

The line I will never forget my father saying to me is, “No one would ever suspect you of counting cards. You’re too pretty.” 

It was that day that I learned that my beauty was a weapon that could be used to my advantage. I just have never learned how to harness it. 

I head to my room to grab my shoes and purse to head to a casino, to find a happy memory…because, tomorrow, I’ll meet the man I’m going to marry. Tomorrow, I’ll have to face the fact that I don’t get to decide my own future, but I don’t have to today. I still have a chance to make today better. I was wrong. Today isn’t the worst day of my life. Tomorrow probably will be, so I’m going to make the most of my last night of freedom.

What a strange twist! Nobody has arranged marriages any more so this should be interesting to see if it works out.
