    One thought on “Who'd Have Thought”

    1. This was a real, feel good romance. I’m becoming a fan of Benson. All the Little Moments is still a favorite of mine, and I think she has another hit on her hands. This is the kind of book I think romance fans are going to really enjoy.Hayden is a nurse, struggling to make ends meet. On a whim she answers an ad to be compensated for a relationship. One year of marriage for more than 200,000. This could finally be the break she really needs, but can she go through with this. When Hayden finds o [...]

    2. Every once in a while you come across a book that grabs you and holds on. You know what I'm talking about. A book that you are halfway through and you want to close it and start it back over. A book where you stare into space a mull over the characters and what their next move might be. A story that grabs you and just won't let go. That book is Who'd Have Thought by G. Benson. This story is that good, this book is that amazing! Hayden Pérez is our main character with the story told through her [...]

    3. 'Ylva-Publishing ARC provided in exchange for a fair and honest review'3.5 stars! My first book by this author and it drew me in immediately and held me in enthralled intrigue from start to finish because of the synopsis,storyline and so much more. G.Benson covers a range of topics in this book including family drama(homophobic issues),wealth distinction,health issues(Alzheimer),diverse friendship,Same-sex marriage etc What i grasp about this author's writing is how uncomplicated she made both t [...]

    4. I loved this. The best books are those that I'm not aware of reading and this one fits that bill. I felt like I was living in the skin of our lead Hayden and it was a great place to be because she's such a lovable and sympathetic character. In fact, all of the characters are great. An author's writing is especially good when they can make an ice-queen not be a caricature but a full fledged human being and that was done here.Sometimes it's hard to pinpoint what makes something work vs doesn't but [...]

    5. Who'd Have Thought is the second top-notch book full of diversity and published by Ylva in very quick succession (the first being Perfect Rhythm by Jae in September). It immediately went on my "favorites" shelf and will be read again. G Benson did an excellent job. Kudos to her!5 starsOct 15, 2017

    6. I think most people have read this, not really but let's pretend, so I'll not work too hard on a review.So - characters: Sam (41 - I do not believe ever explicitly stated, but is 20 years older than brother, and 15 years older than Hayden (though I've a vague recollection of Hayden, at some point, noting that she was six years older than Jon, but that might be a faulty memory)) and Hayden (26 - for some reason I always think people are 26, let's pretend this is accurate since it corresponds to t [...]

    7. 5 SOLID GOLD STARS. The plot of this story isn’t that unusual A marriage of convenance and not love but eventually turns into love - I’m sure a lot of arranged marriages in real life, Older movies such as 7 Brides 4 Seven Brothers and more recently The Proposal with Bullock & Reynolds.In this case it is between Samantha Thompson, a brilliant, focused neurosurgeon but socially awkward and Hayden Perez, an ER nurse. Sam reminds me of Nora in Between the lines and Isles of Rizzoli & Isl [...]

    8. I received this file from the publisher in exchange for a fair reviewThis story begins with a common trope in "romance", the fake girlfriend, but does much with it. The story is engaging without dips and valleys of interest and the drama mark, when it comes, is more believable because of the unique situation both women are in - it's a contract for a fake marriage after all. This was my first story with a binary character which gave my mind a gentle workout becoming accustomed to the pronouns. I [...]

    9. Wonderful book! Two people are in a desperate situation because of different reasons, and they set up a marriage of convenience. This is the book's premise and from here the story builds. The author creates a variety of characters who are representative of different sexualities, she also creates a strong and believable story, although it can be very predictable. The book could be a love story but it's not only that. There are different subthemes: Alzheimers, homophobia, friendship, etc. that enr [...]

    10. Loved it. Kinda hoped Hayden would have found her voice earlier, but it is what it is. The end though? I'm like noooooooo then I was all yeaaaaaaaa! LOL. For reals, that went through my head. I've 4 or 5'ved two of her other books so this one isn't much of a surprise. I knew I'd probably dig it. Maybe I'll work through the last few of her books and make it a clean sweep.

    11. I think this might be my new favourite plot in Lesbian Fiction. Hayden is having some money issues and working as a nurse in the local hospital isn't really bringing the bank in. She needs to find a way to make extra money and on a whim answers an add on Craigslist but she never truely believes she'll get a answer. Neurosurgeon Sam is in a predicament and needs to find a wife soon and can compensate her new wife handsomely for just a year of her time. When they meet Hayden is shocked to find Dr [...]

    12. So far I have not read a bad Benson book. And, so it continues. This book is about a marriage of convenience which ends up being a marriage of love. Now there are a lot of ups and downs a long the way. Some are funny, some are serious and some are just because. You have two very different people who come together through an internet advert asking for a wife for a year for money. They just had to make everyone believe it.I will admit I found the binary part of the book a little confusing at first [...]

    13. For some weird reason I haven’t read any G. Benson until now, but I know reading reviews from my fellow Good Reads chums that Book Club Buddie D. and I were in for a treat.And it was a treat. Who'd Have Thought had so many good things going for it: it’s length, a hospital setting, the rich girl-poor girl trope, the marriage of convenience trope, a slooooooow burn romance, a memorable pet, an age-gap, an ice-queen reputation, going from I dislike you to I love you, family that you love and fa [...]

    14. I wasn’t sure about Who’d Have Thought initially as the romance I was hoping for was slow to develop. The many scenes shared by Hayden and her bestie, Luce gave us a clear picture of how unlikely the chances were that Hayden would be able to successfully enter into her agreement with Sam. I found it a lot of work getting used to the necessary pronouns needed to address a non-binary person but I appreciated the authors efforts to educate. It seemed awkward and confusing at first, but thanks t [...]

    15. Goodness! G Benson is my new go to author and of course this is my favorite from her and this is also going to be on my top 5 favorites this year. Goodness the moment I read the blurb, I knew I will go crazy about this book.Ice Queen persona and Marriage of Convenience, two things I usually like in a plot. I was glued to the book. SO be warned that this is a page turner. You will be curious as what are their reasons for doing it. I don’t want to spoil the book so I won’t give a hint.Harvey i [...]

    16. ARC received from Ylva in return for an honest review. I loved Benson’s ‘All the Little Moments’, but didn’t find this one as engaging. I think part of that stems from this book being told from Hayden’s POV so that Sam remains a mystery, but I found that frustrating, because in all honesty, she was the more interesting character to me and I wanted to know more about her and her motivations, which aren’t revealed until about the 3/4 mark. I honestly think that was a mistake, a) becaus [...]

    17. The highly unusual premise of this book alone sold me. And I wasn't disappointed. G Benson writes with a light yet sensitive touch. And while it was a bit of a wait for the big reveal, I was never bored with Hayden and Sam's slow burn romance. This would have been a solid five starrer in my book though, if there had been a more in-depth treatment of Sam, the emotionally challenged one. There were occasional flashes of understanding, but for the most part, the book centered around Hayden.4.4 star [...]

    18. Detailed score: 4.75So so good.From the very first chapters I knew this book was going to be one of those I wanted to ready slowly (because you can only read a book for the first time once) but also so unputdownable I wanted to rush to the end.Plot is not new but rarely done this well.Characters are well rounded. Pacing is excellent.A rare 5 stars from me. Do yourselves a favour lesrom fans.

    19. I fell in love with both main characters, and the secondaries were outstanding. This book is likely to turn into a comfort read for me.

    20. I was holding back on reading this one because of the plot that was done over and over but thank god I gave up and read it! As much as I loved Hayden the main character, I related more to Sam (I am NOT a doctor) but somehow I just loved her character. The book is so funny, so sexy, and most importantly deals with something that people tend to forget: there are still a lot of families who deal with homosexuality as a disease! Where I come from, unfortunately this is still the case so for me this [...]

    21. I absolutely loved it.It's been ages since I've read a lesbian book and this was the first one after a very long time.And it did not disappoint. It took me just a couple of hours to read it all because I couldn't stop. Who needs sleep, right?

    22. Romance fans out there, especially those who love books featuring doctors, shouldn't bother reading anymore of this review. They should just go ahead and read the book. Who'd have thought this would be such a good book? I definitely didn't. I thought this would be just another light-read with a trope that has been done to death in straight fiction (read MNB) - two people entering into a marriage of convenience and the rich girl-poor girl trope. But Benson did a great job of fleshing out the char [...]

    23. This is one of the best romances I have read all year and I have read some fantastic books. The love of the romance genre is alive and well on these pages and the book sings with the pleasure of a marriage of con and a private and uptight heroine vs a much more emotionial and blunt heroine.It is grand. We get all that forced proximity joy. They know very little about each other and we get to learn about each of them as they learn each other.It is a sexy as hell dance. Both are wonderful at their [...]

    24. Sam is a neurosurgeon in need to get married and Hayden is a nurse struggling, every month, to make ends meet. Everything starts when Hayden answer an advertisement that promise a reward for a fake marriage. From there, one starts to know the characters and learn to love them. One more time G Benson is able to writte the perfect romance. The slow build-up between the characters. How Hayden start to develop feelings for Sam eventhough Sam is oblivious to everything. How she tries to understand Ha [...]

    25. This was a book I could not put down! But at the same time I also reached about 80 percent of the book and I suddenly had to clean my entire apartment because I was so not ready to finish the book. It was too good - I absolutely hands down loved it! Nurse Hayden Perez is always a little short in the money department. When a late night internet browsing adventure has her replying to a message of someone who requires marriage for a year in exchange for the cool sum of 200 000$ she doesn't hesitate [...]

    26. I’d never expected to find this book so good. I connected with Who’d have thought better than All the Little Moments, which is most people’s favorite book by G Benson. I like this storyline and love the flow.

    27. It's amazing. One of new my favourite books.I am a sucker for the Fake Dating Trope so I had to get this book as soon as possible. When I started, I only wanted to read the first 1-2 chapters to get a feeling for it - seeing as I was already reading sth else that time I originally wanted to finish first and suddenly it was 3 in the morning and I was halfway through and had to get all my will power together to not read it all in that night. I did that the night after that.The writing is amazing, [...]

    28. There is nothing really I can say about this book that hasn't already been said by far better reviewers than myself. It's a fantastic book that I had trouble putting down since I had to do that annoying thing we bookworms have to do every now and then sleep. Sweet, cute, angst free and sometimes humorous, this book will definitely be worth your time! Overall rating is a 4.5*
