Summary

William Harper has it all: Looks, money, power. There’s just one tiny problem - he’s about to be deported. He needs a green card. Fast. An American wife is the easiest way to get one. But where will he find a woman to marry him on such short notice?

Elizabeth Barrett is a full-time student, part-time dog walker, and weekend tutor. With a roommate who just ran out on her and neck deep in tuition payments, she needs money. Now. Harper just might make her an offer she can’t refuse. He thinks he’s worked out the perfect deal, she thinks she’s signed up for an easy job.

Neither of them bargained for the ride of their lives.

Easy, but predicable, read with great narration

Essentially an adult 'Mills and Boon" type story that's a cross between Pretty Woman, Pride & Prejudice and the Green Card movies. The storyline is predictable and the style of writing, often too literal, but I really enjoyed the narrator's voice(s) - especially Liz and Will's accents. Bravo Elizabeth Grace!!

Highly engaging storytelling with flawless narration

Everything about the audio version of Green Card met with my personal approval. The story flows so beautifully and the characters are extremely well drawn, its a hefty book but also a true page turner with absolutely no low points. The narration is flawless, I began to feel I knew the reader and the way she seamlessly flipped between male/ female voices and British / American accents was genuinely impressive. Recommended for anyone who likes modern romance with highly relatable characters, an intelligent plot and a bit of a Nora Ephron vibe. LOVED IT

🥰

Ms Elizabeth Adams does it again. This storyline is so evocative, so overwhelming. She pulled me in and was not able to stop. I am actually writing this review after reading the book for the second time. I finished it and reread as soon as I finished because I didn't want to leave the world of Lizzy and William.

Very enjoyable modern variation

Elizabeth Grace did a wonderful job reading Green Card. I enjoyed the story a great deal. It was fun to watch Elizabeth discover the Will’s world and vice versa. The story is low angst.

A Marriage of Convenience Becomes Convenietly Real

After relishing the author's Ship to Shore earlier this year, I was determined to continue with her backlist and new releases. I had my eye on this particular one since I spotted the title. I've seen romcom movies with this theme and thoroughly enjoyed them so I was eager to dive into Green Card. The author slowly builds from fake to real in a relationship full of friendship and heartwarming feelings, a conflict that was low angst, but still added tension to the plot, and an entertaining plot and engaging cast of characters. Green Card opens with wealthy business mogul, William Harper, in a tough spot after a spiteful ex sets immigration on him. The only way to keep from being deported is to get his green card through marrying an American. William enjoys New York and hesitates only for a moment before letting his best friend and lawyer, Andrew Jamison, talk him into making his pitch to Jamie's girlfriend's sister, Elizabeth Barrett. They are a pair of opposites and first encounter and subsequent encounters start out rough, but slowly he finds an unexpected friend and their fake marriage- two year agreement suddenly starts to feel pretty real. Elizabeth Barrett has a lot of brands in the fire all to live away from her family home and finish her education. Her flaky roommate ditched her leaving her with all the rent and it's one set back too many. Starched up William Harper isn't her idea of husband material, but the contract can relieve her struggles tremendously and it's not like any of it's real, right? But, getting to know each other and seeing behind the facade to the real person makes her want things she can't have. Or can she? I do love when opposites meet and the sparks start to fly. Then, there is the strangers getting married and forced into proximity to add a few more pinches of spice. And, the humor moments were off the hook at times (sending your sorta friends- sorta not real hubby to the drug store for some girly stuff said how real it was, but also had me rolling at the real life. It was a set up to a story that I was bound to love- and I did. Granted, the story took it's time and the relationship built brick by brick. There were times of conflict because of course the pair of them had some marital spats, but the angst stayed relatively low all things considered. His family and her family moments had me sitting up for both the modern-day class differences and because I got to see them really come together as a couple and have each other's backs. William's struggles are most deeply with a parent who has passed on and Liz's are with a live parent who doesn't like her. My heart went out to them both. The book covers the whole two-year time span with time skips from event to event with the real life and dialogues playing a large role. Many people might find this pace a tad slow, but for the most part, I didn't mind. I liked being with this pair in their world. As to narrator, Elizabeth Grace, I enjoyed my first encounter with her work. She voiced William and Liz so perfectly. I could see the characters and the whole story so well in my mind's eye. She did male and female, age, class, and emotions spot on. I look forward to listening to more of her work. In summary, I ask myself why I waited so long. This was delightful through and through. So easy and entertaining, swoony, and heartwarming. I do believe I need to get going on that backlist for more. For those who like slow build, easy reading contemporary romance for a marriage of convenience plot, here's one to tickle your fancy.

Great pacing, tone and storytelling!

Well written and likeable characters. A great read to escape into the pages of delicious angst and sweet romance. This would would translate well to a movie! Talented voice actress—great pacing, tone and characterization!
